A very devastating thing to go through, losing a pet in any way whatsoever. I thankfully have had very devoted pets. However, my first cat had bunches and bunches of babies and we never could get her fixed because she was always pregnant! LOL. No, I will not abort cats. It's not my decision to abort a mother's baby, even if it is a cat. Anyways, I chose to care for each and every kitty she had. Which was at least 12, but all at seperate litters. ALL male except one--Patise who I still have! She's been with me I guess for about 7 years now. WOW! That's a long time. Maybe longer.
Anyways, the males run away. I had one male, Edward fixed and the bastard left me within the same week! I was only trying to help him. I didn't want him getting in fights and beat up.
So he must not have taken well to his procedure.
Then out of the same litter, Petey, Albie, Sam, and Edwin all gradually left me.
Edwin was the male who stuck around the longest. He was a beautiful cat. I called him Kittychilla because he looked like a kitty and a chinchilla!
He loved me, but ended up staying gone for days at a time til' he finally left me for good. It was too much heartache.
Anyways, we randomly have a white cat that comes around. I used to leave my window open and once woke up to a HUGE white cat in the floor looking at me asleep and meowing loudly. Scared the daylights out of me, but he got to where he'd come in my window at night, but would run if I woke up. I swear I think it's my old Albie!
Glad your chickens were all herded back safely. I really don't know what I'd do if I lost any more pets.
