My baby was hit by a car and died today

post #1 of 18

It's been a while since I've been to these boards, but it's the only place I know where some will understand the pain I'm going through.

My wonderful precious cat, Achilles was hit by a car and died today, and I'm so lost right now that I don't know what to do with myself.

We got him only two years ago, him and his brother Sirius. Sirius is pitch black whereas Achilles was a beautiful orange tabby.

I've never met a cat like Achilles, he was the sweetest and kindest creature. Every night he'd sleep right next to me, purring and rubbing his little nose against my face. He's never harmed anyone, never scratched never hissed, I think he was inside his big heart a little naive. If he'd see a dog, he'd just walk right over to it like it was nothing to be scared of, and if we had visitors he'd jump on their lap like he just knew he was welcome everywhere.

Last night he didn't come home before bed time and I was really worried because he was always sleeping in a bed next to a human, unlike his brother who'd some time be gone all night hunting. Achilles never came home with a pray, I just don't think he was much of a hunter. He was always more a cudler.
Then when he didn't come home this morning, my dad went to look for him and half an hour later he came home with a black plastic bag where Achilles was lying dead inside. Hit by a car.

We've burried him in the garden underneath a tree and I've planted a flower on his grave. The flower is called "burning love" which I think is fitting because I loved Achilles more than anything in this world.

I know it sounds crazy, but I think maybe he was too good for this world, he never thought anything could or would harm him.
I don't know how to cope with this, I'm crying all the time, and I keep turning my head, hoping to see his little orange fur come through the door one my time.

R.I.P my sweet precious angel, you only got to live for two years, but at least I know you lived happily. I'll miss you so terribly.

This is terrible. I can understand so well the pain you are experiencing now after loosing such a good friend. There are human beings we could not care less for as they are lousy individuals, people we have dealt with in the past. And you are right : your cat was much better than some people, making this event even less justifable.

What else can I say? Not much, only that I sympathise with you a lot

i am sorry this has happened, but at least you have your other little kitty there to comfort each other. After my cat died from leukemia we had a hard time with his brother burlap, he slipped into a dression. make sure you show Sirius love and warmth during tis time.

Thanks guys, it's nice to know there're some people who understand how sad and heartbreakin, losing a pet can be. I feel like a little part of me has died today, and I don't really know how to fix it.
He was so young, so beautiful and so loving. It's just not fair.

My baby, Achilles

Hi Iben
Have just read your thread and feel so sorry for you.What an awful experience for you to go through.
I can understand how you feel,18 months ago,the sweetest dog I ever knew got run over right in front of me and died in my arms,it happened so fast I just couldnt believe it,and like you,kept looking for her for ages afterwards.
She too was so nice,never aggressive or nasty to anyone or anything.
It just doesnt make sense does it? I will never understand why these thing happen.
I pray you are consoled by your other cat and people around you.
My dog was two years old also.
Take care

Thanks again for the loving thoughts. I don't know people in the "real" world who understand how much sorrow it can bring.

I don't know how people ever get over these things. I miss my baby so much, I can't stop crying, I feel like a wreck.

Today his brother started looking for him, and that was probably the saddest thing I've ever experienced. This afternoon, Sirius wondered around the back yard and he ended up lying on his brother's grave. I don't know if he somehow knew that Achilles is burried right there or if it was a coinscidence, but it broke my heart even more.

Please believe it does get better and easier with time.
Although,it does feel like the pain will never go away,it does lessen.
Take care

I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose one of our beloved pets. I hope you will soon feel better. When I lost Max last year, I cried for many days and still do. But time does make it better. In the meanwhile, try writing a story about your baby. It helped me to do that. May your precious memories bring you comfort.

Condolences to Sirius & you on your tragic loss of Achilles. He brought such joy to his family & everyone who crossed his path - what a blessing he was to you! Heaven is one orange cat richer tonight, and your love for him shines all the way to up there I pray that someday soon your memories & thoughts of him will bring smiles amid the tears. Feel free to grieve, but remember to give support to Sirius, and assure him to the best of your ability, as he must be feeling lonely & scared at this loss. susan
