My cat pus-pus died last week and we only found out today
We had had him for over 8 years, he was a stray who lived in some nearby woods but slowly become more friendly with us and we ended up keeping him. We would feed him and try to coax him over by saying pus-pus, and the name sorta stuck so he ended up as pus-pus. When we moved he came with us and ended up being part of our family.
I had heard that cats run away when they are going to die and hide in a quiet dark place, so that they dont hurt thier owners as much emotionally. I never belived this but i do now..
When pus-pus didnt return home last week, we went out looking for him everywhere but couldnt find him.My mum rang all the local rspca shelters and vets but no one had heard anything, so today my mum and dad walked into the village and asked in the pub. We found out that a local woman, found pus pus curled up in the hollow of tree and was dead. This was the day after he dissaperead so i guess what i heard is true...
The woman and her husband buried him so we didnt even get to say goodbye.
rest in piece lil puspus- you had such a hard life as a stray and im so glad you found us so you could experience some love
