Rest In Peace Simon

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
My only and favorite cat, Simon died what you could call a violent death. He always wanted to go outside, even in winter, but we restrained him and only let him go outside a few times in 2 weeks or if he got lucky, and managed to slip under our legs when we were entering our apartment. We lived on a quiet street so we were never particulary worried about his safety. Then on this fateful January, 31, 2007 he managed to slip outside in the snow. Later, when my dad had some stove to move in a house he bought, he asked me to help him. I went outside, and collected a flashlight from the trunk of our car. When I turned around I saw Simon laying down in the snow. My first thought was, "Wait a minute, Simon never stays in one place when he is outside". It was a few seconds later that I discovered he was ran over by a car... Now the apartment seems desolate and lifeless. Everything reminds me of him. A windowsill he loved to sunbathe on, grass he used to eat when he was outside, the general thought of a cat reminds me of him. I feel horrible. The shock of sudden death is the worst. Absolutely devastating. Goodbye, Simon. You were playing that morning... now we're burying you.You won't be forgotten. You were unique. No matter how many cats look like you, act like you, sound like you, they could NEVER substitute you.

Love, the family

P.S.: I hope that the person who ran over Simon, even considers, that the cat he/she killed was treated like a family member and was deeply loved. If not, he/she should be treated like scum for commiting murder and causing so much grief.

I am so, so sorry that your first post on TCS was to announce the tragic loss of Simon So many of us here know only too, too well the gigantic emptiness that enters the home when a cat has crossed over Rainbow Bridge. Such a sad discovery in the snow Please feel free to tell us more about Simon -and know that your brilliant love shines beyond the Beyond, and lights his way to Heaven. Godspeed, Simon

I'm so sorry to hear about your dear Simon. I know how shocking and heartbreaking the loss of a beloved kitty can be, especially when its in such a sudden accident like that.

I don't understand how someone could do that and just keep going and not stop to try to help him, but unfortunately, most people are like that.

I know you miss him but Simon is free now and happy, over the rainbow bridge. There are so many wonderful kitties there for him to hang out with, including my Alley, until the time comes for you to be together with him again.

Rest in peace Simon.

I'm so very sorry about Simon. You have a good heart and he was loved. He had a good home with you. I hope the person that hit him gets what they deserve for being the sorry, cold, nimrod they are. They probably didn't even bother to check on him either.
Simon was blessed to have you in his life...I'm glad you will always remember that no one can replace him.
