We've had our sweet cat Lizzi (or Lizard as he was also known) for about 4 1/2 years. We first got him when he was just a kitten. We thought he was a "SHE" at first, but then our nice neighbors Eric & Shannon kindly informed us that he was really a HE! It was kind of funny. (Hey, I didn't know what cat anatomy looked like ok!) Well, this afternoon we had something really sad happen. We had 2 big dogs chase Lizzi into our next door neighbors yard and attack him. Our neighbor Lynette came and told Mark Lizzi was hurt in their yard so Mark went to get him. Poor Lizzi was in a bad way. He couldn't move his legs, and he was breathing hard and moaning. It was so awful. It wasn't much longer after that and Lizzi died. It was so sad. You could tell he was in so much pain and was suffering. I just cried and cried. Then I had to break the news to my kids. Poor Katie and Matt toook it really hard, especially Katie. She is pretty heartbroken. She is our animal lover. So this Blog is dedicated to our sweet cat Lizzi. He was such a good cat. Even Mark liked him and that's saying something for Mark because he isn't the fondest of animals. This photo I took of him was actually just taken yesterday - how ironic is that. He was watching us from the patio and it was so funny to watch him sit there wishing he was inside. Natalie even brought him in after that because she felt sorry for him I think. Anyway, we love you Lizzi. You were such a pretty cat. Thanks for being a great pet to our family. We'll miss you very much.
