Mitzy was our affectionate 13 yr old cat, she loved everybody and always mourned loss of other pets. She was mauled by a viscous dog at 7.50pm Friday 28th August 2009 out the front of our home. Apparently he was chewing her for ages and the owner couldn’t stop the dog. I grabbed mitz, thankfully the dog only had her by the back legs, her legs were movement and too tired to scream to let us know she was being attacked. We rushed her to the vet and every scream of pain tore at our hearts. She was given three pain killers but by 10pm the vet euthanaesed her.

I don’t like to say good-bye because I know they area always near us after death. But we miss you mitz.
