I went to my shed out back tonight and was startled. A cat, one that I have seen around the neighborhood before, was laying on the floor. When I looked closer with the flashlight I saw that he wasn't breathing. His fur looked like it had been wet but had frozen in place. It had rained all day yesturday and last night was very cold, in the teens. I imagine he finally found shelter in my shed since I keep the door cracked and just couldn't bring his body temperature back up. He was laying on his side and looked as if he might have moved around a bit cause he had some dirt on him from the shed floor. Their wasn't anything for him to warm up to since that part of the shed is empty just has a few tools hanging up on the wall. I feel so bad, maybe if I would have let my garage door open or something he might have made it. What do you guys think? He was a great cat, he played with mine on many occasions. I'm not sure if he had a real home, I figured his owners lived around her somewhere since he was so tame. I just wish I could have found him in time.
