Sunbeam, We’ll Miss You! — 6 Comments

  1. That’s so sad. I liked Sunbeam even though she wouldn’t let me near her, LOL.

    Glad to hear you are taking this awful situation and turning it into a learning experience.

    Please let the kids know I’m thinking of them and praying for you all. And like Auntie Linda, give them big hugs from me too! 😀

    • Hi Reff,
      Thanks so much for the prayers and hugs. 🙂 It is still heartbreaking. Although Don and I are not ready for another cat, the kids would like another pet, so we will be heading to the humane society on Monday.

  2. Oh Cynthia, how horrible. This is such a tragedy that someone would do something so evil. I pray that the Lord heal your hearts during this time…I feel so terrible for you and the kids…

    • Thanks Dee. We definitely can use the prayers. I was able to reiterate the importance of forgiveness to the kids and to Don. He is taking this hard too, but we need to be strong for the kids. We have to forgive the person who did this. It was dark, so maybe they didn’t know it was a cat. But, it doesn’t justify shooting any animal for any reason other than for food. This also opened up the responsibility we have as gun owners. Apparently this person was not taught to respect weapons or animals.

    • Thanks Lou! I gave them both hugs for you. 🙂 The kids are doing a little better. It opened up a lesson on forgiveness even when we don’t understand why someone would do that to any innocent animal.
