Just A Cat

My baby boy, JAC (short for Just A Cat) died today after being run over by a car.
He was a beautiful black and white little guy with long fur. He was sweet and beautiful and semi feral. He and his brother and two sisters were born under my mobile home to a feral mother 3 years ago.
One of his sisters, Mitzi, a little tortie was run over by a car a year ago so they are now together at the Rainbow Bridge. I am sure it was a joyous reunion.
It is especially sad as he was so young and not ready to leave this world...well perhaps he was but I was not ready to lose him just yet. I have already lost 3 other beloved kitties so far this year...the most recent being BuggBoo just 9 days ago.
JAC tested negative for Felv/Fiv and had to be euthanized because his back end had been run over and the nerves were all destroyed. He would have had to have his tail amputated and would never have control of his bowels or bladder ever again. It was a tough decision that I did not want to make. After consulting with my wonderful vet, we decided that euthanasia would be the most kind and caring route to take.
I am really really angry that this has happened. JAC was a completely wonderful and beautiful kitty and he didn't deserve to die like this. I am very sad that I could not be with him at the end as I wanted his suffering to stop and it would have taken me an hour to get to him. I hope he can forgive me.
His brother, Moose, is now battling leukemia and I don't expect him to be here next year at this time. I hope Moose knows that his beloved brother is gone. He seems like he does. Moose and JAC were very close. It just isn't fair. JAC, for some miraculous reason was leukemia free and he still had to die....over something so stupid that I still can't believe it.
Sorry to babble on like this but I am in a lot of pain right now.
Good bye sweet and beautiful little boy JAC...my "just a cat" boy. You were anything but "just a cat" to me. That is why I gave you that name. To apply a positive connotation to that horrible phrase. I love you and I miss you. I will never forget you. I will cherish your son, Joey, and your sister, Emily, and brother, Moose for as long as they are here.
Be a good boy and have fun running through the cosmos. GO, JAC, GO!!!! ....sigh......
