I know this doesn't really belong in DIY, but this is where I mostly hang out. I don't really have anybody else I want to tell.
Tonight our beautiful grey and white cat Indigo Spatz, the Indysaurus, brought himself home for the last time, missing half of a hind leg and with the other hind leg damaged. On the advice of the vet we had him put down.We think he was hit by a train or a car. He was just over a year old.
We've had seven other cats at this house, all died of old age, we thought it was safe to let them out the back of this long terrace, despite the train line, but Indy was an adventurer and may have crossed the gardens on the other side of the tracks onto the road.
I loved him, not more than his ginger brother Riley Blue, the Rileygator, who's still with us, we all loved him.
He was a particular friend of the big dog.
