Unhappy Kibby's cat Two

Kibby's number on cat was hit by the van tonight. He was sleeping behind the front tire. The vet said IF they can get the brain swilling down he MIGHT live. If he lives for the next 24-48 hours he will have surgery to remove an eye.

Two did not make it through the night.

Some of you will have seen his picture in the Fourty Years of Pern book.
He is "reading" A Gift of Dragons.

For her birthday I found someone who will paint a fairy cat to look just like Two. She has been looking on the internet for a gray and white fairy cat.

He was the prefect cat for a child. He let her do anything she wanted and very rarely scratched her. Every now and then he would get in a mood roll over on his back his eyes would get huge and dare Kibby to pick him up. Those were the nights Kibby would look at me and ask me to take him to her room. I had more sence than to mess with him when he was in those moods. Five min. after Kibby would go to bed he would get up and go in there and I would hear Kibby asking me to move him because she could not move.

Mostly ok. Mom did hear her crying the other night. The night is the worst for her. When she wakes up and he is not on top of her.

My thoughts go out to you all for your loss. My cat didn't die (that we know of, as she was lost in a car wreck as we were moving cross-country), but her loss was deeply felt by my wife and I, especially at night also. I do understand her feelings. I hope she is able to feel better soon.

I know, for myself anyway, that putting how I felt down on paper helped a good bit. I normally am horrible with poetry, but the poem I wrote in my cat's honor was, to me, one of my best, if quite painful. Perhaps she might try that.

She is doing much better. When a cat jumps on her in the middle of the night is when she is reminded of him and gets up set.
