I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. We have coyotes around our place as well, even though it is still the suburbs, and some of our cats have also gone missing in the past. We are careful now to keep them in at night but I do have one cat - Aspen - who frequently refuses to come in (even when he's right there in the driveway, 20 feet from the door) until you've brought out the tuna to bribe him. I love animals but there is a drawback to living with them in that you are almost guaranteed to outlive them and it never gets any easier to lose them. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your barn cat. The loss of a pet is not an easy thing. Foxy certainly was loved and will be remembered.

I am sorry for your loss. Glad though that Foxy was able to have a good life.
Twice I have had barn cats come up missing. Assumed it was coyotes also. But my husband was moving old hay around the barn this spring and found the remains of two cats. Can't identify them, but they were curled up as if sleeping, all this time I blamed the coyotes....I also had a cat go missing for an entire summer, only to show up in the fall and not recognize me as the person who fed her for three years. Sometimes we forget that they are animals and they like to be wild.

When my son's favored cat died after 16 years, he was crushed. I compiled pics from when he was a kitten to the sympathy card we received from the vet, and compiled them in a little photo album. Now he can flip through the pages and remember their life together.

I am so sorry for you loss - I know how important our pets are to each of us. Don't punish yourself, your sister is right, Foxy had a great life, people that loved her and daily adventure.
