We don't wanna be a downer today but Nick called mom dis morning (5:30 am) and he was crying, mom could tell. He found one of da colony cats dead inside one of da shelters! Last night was a bad night, wind, snow, sleet...as dad sez "not fit for man nor beast". When he got der dis morning der was one shelter wif three kitties inside, frendly ones, he reached in to rub ears and discovered dat two of dem were either garding, or trying to keep warm, one dead kitty. Mom sez it was an older cat and she thinks he went peacefully in his sleep. Mom took him to da vet dat took care of fixing da colony and he said he would take care of him...mom don't wanna know how so she did not ask. Poor Nick, he's purrty upset, when mom left him he was shoveling around da feeding station and crying! She called his parents and told dem what happened, dey were purrty sad too as dis is Nick's project from da beginning. *sigh* We is gonna say a little purrayer fur da old guy at da Bridge. Bet he's making frends der right now..at least he won't hafta face da cold, heat and rainy days anymore.
