It is a very sad day here in catsterland. Today mom was driving home to Pullman with Marion & Markus, Thorgal, Jolan, Mumtatz, and Happy's humans, and she hit and killed a beautiful red longfurred kitty named Marvy who ran out into the road. Mom was driving too fast, it was very late on a dark country road in the middle of no where, and she could not stop in time to save Marvy. Mom turned the car around and Marvy was already dead when mom got to him. Mom pet him and told him that she was sorry then picked him up and with Marion & Markus' help she found his owner so that she knew what had happened and could take care of Marvy.
Marvy is here with Thorgal and my posse now. He's so beautiful and looks so much like Pete. He's in shock still but we'll take good care of him and the brother and father he left behind. He misses them. We'll take some extra rounds for his human's too, they are suffering but were so kind to mom, they are very nice people.
While Thorgal was taking care of Marvy, I raced home and told Pete and the gang what had happened. Mom had been worried that Marion would come to meet them all the way from Germany and they would hide from her. Pete said he knew just what to do and he greeted them at the door and all four kitties came out to meet and greet and try out the new feather toy Marion got them in Oregon. Marion was so pleased to meet them and mom was so proud. Even Ceci came out to play and allowed mom to catch her so that Marion could pet her soft fur. I'm heading back to help with Marvy's family, Pete will take care of mom.
On the way home mom, Marion, and Markus passed a car that had run into a deer. The ambulance and police were there. Mom wondered if Marvy had helped keep mom from driving into the deer instead. Its tempting to drive faster on quiet country roads when its dark and no one is there. Marvy ran out in front of mom and I don't know if she would have been able to stop in time if she'd been going slower but it would have mattered a great deal if Marvy had been a deer. Please tell your humans to be careful.
p.s. Mom & Marion & Markus are having a great time together! It's so nice for them to finally meet!!! They spent the last few days in Oregon and the next two will be in Pullman. Then Marion & Markus will head for San Francisco for a week to enjoy California, then back to Münster. Thorgal & I have been having a great time watching them!

It must have torn your mom's heart out Bear. Don't worry he is here with us and we should now sprinkle love down on your mom. It wasn't her fault. It was the cars. People should not let there kitties out but it is hard sometimes to keep them so safe. We understand.
Love, Angel Ashley
Many many hugs to your mommy Bear. My mommy hit a kitty once who just ran out in front of her. But the kitty ran off and mommy wasn't able to find it. She felt just horrible because she knew the kitty had to be hurt! But it wasn't mommy's fault just like Marvy wasn't your mommy's fault.
And maybe you are right, Marvy was being an angel and saving your mommy from getting hurt by hitting a deer. We cats are like that... angels in disguise.
purrrrrrrrrrrs and headbonks to your mommy,
Oh Bear, we are so sad fur Marvy & his family, & fur your Meowmy too. We're sending out pawsitive energies to Marvy, his family, & your Meowmy. It is a hard thing fur our humans when they inadvertently cause the death of a wonderful living creature, isn't it? We're glad your Meowmy is who she is , that she stopped fur Marvy, & to try to find his family.
Love, Fluffy & Alex & Meowmy.
