I seem to remember we had a picture of Davidson as the wallpaper on our computer for a while, he was so cute and it was lovely to look at him. I hope it doesn't seem odd to have a photo of someone else's cat on your computer instead of one of your own, but I think it shows how loved that little kitty was by all of us.
The real tragedy is how young he was, and how sudden. It's one thing when a cat is old and stiff and tired after a happy life of warmth and love, to read about his deteriorating health, to hold his human's hand through any tough decisions they may have to make, and when the time comes to remember his long life and to feel, through the sadness, that he was ready to leave. Tragic shocks like this affect us all very deeply.
We all accept that one day (hopefully far in the future) our beloved furry friends will be old and tired and will have to leave us, sad though that is, but sudden death is so much more difficult to accept, and touches us in a different way.
I cried for Davidson, and I also cried at the thought of one of mine (well especially Radar, I adore Sonic but Radar is my first ever cat and has a special place in my heart all of his own iykwim) being suddenly taken and it is heartbreaking.
Radar has been licky cat this morning and wanted extra long cuddles while he groomed my entire face and covered me in dribble, for which I am grateful.
