Our cat Sugar was mauled by a neighbor dog Thursday. He died that night. Tough day for the kids. Tough for us too. It's a good thing that we've got Sammy and Jasper (and the chickens) to take up the slack; it keeps the kids from focusing only on Sugar's death. We brought him home today. Both kids were very curious to see him. We're going to bury him under the walnut tree in the back yard.

I've never been attached to a cat before, but Sugar slipped into our lives in a very memorable way. He had a way of shadowing us when we went for walks; it wasn't walking with us so much as it was keeping track of us. Last Halloween he followed the kids trick or treating several blocks around our neighborhood. He also schooled our puppy Sammy on the martial arts.

We miss him a lot.

I'm so sorry to hear about Sugar. He was such a character- and characters live forever in memory. Tim and I still tell Zephyr and Gray Cat stories, as Tess and Colm will always have Sugar stories. Hugs all around~ Love, Erin
