 came home from work yesterday to be told that my cat, Rodney, had been run over and has died. He was only three years old, and such a small little thing. :(

Thing is, none of us saw him being hit by the car, or have seen his body. My mum had thought him missing, so was searching and knocking on all the doors in an attempt to find him. Then a neighbour come round later and said he saw two council men, standing beside a dead white cat at the side of the road, when he got back from work. He then identified the cat as being Rodney, from a photo Mum showed him. Apparently, a van came and picked Rodney's body up. This is all we have got to go by. We don't even know if this was a council van, or what.

Sorry, I just really need to have some comfort right now. I feel devastated. Rodney was an important member of our family, and not only am I feeling like my cat has died, but it feels doubly worse not knowing where his body has been taken to. My parents have tried phoning different numbers and visiting the council this afternoon, but so far no luck.

I'd just feel a tiny bit better if I knew that we had Rodney and could bury him in the garden and say goodbye. There's just no closure right now.

can you contact the council or your local animal control? maybe they can at least offer closure.

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, my parents have tried that, but no such luck. :( We're now starting to give up on the idea of finding Rodney; I think we've tried every avenue possible. One consolation is that, this way, we only get to remember him as being alive and prancing around like the happy cat he was. I don't think any of us could bear to see what state he's in now if we found him. It's not an image we want in our heads.

Dear Laura,

I am very sorry to hear about your little guy, Rodney.  I hope you will find out where the council has taken him.  Losing a pet due to an accident is so painful.  They are fine one moment, and are gone the next.  The joy is zapped from our lives when a dearly loved pet passes on.  My heart goes out to you and your family.

Thanks for all the support and words of comfort everyone and sorry that I don't know what else to say other than that, I feel like my brain's all jumbled up. :( I really appreciate you all though.
