Goodbye Sweet Cosmo

Our dear kitty Cosmo was hit by a car last night and died. As of this moment, I haven’t told Emma because I didn’t want to send her to school today with that kind of news weighing on her. I am so sad, and so worried about telling Emma.
Last night about 10:45, our neighbor called us and said a cat that looked like ours was dead in the street. Scott went and checked, and it unfortunately was Cosmo. I went out in the street, sat next to him and petted him, crying like a baby. I told him that we loved him and how sorry I was, and how much we will miss him. It was so horrible to see him lifeless like that, lying on the concrete covered in blood. I am so thankful that someone found him before Emma did, he was lying right where her bus stops to pick her up, she absolutely would have found him.
He was such a good boy and I will miss him horribly. I feel bad because I let him be outside, but he honestly wasn’t happy stuck in the house. He was made to be outside and was happiest there. I just wanted him to be happy and live the life he wanted.
Cosmo, if you are looking down on us from kitty heaven, please know that we love you so much and our family won’t be the same without you. I hope you were happy here with us and enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed yours. Even Sophie misses you, she has been a nervous mess all day. I’m so sorry this happened to you, but I really think that could I have asked you what you wanted, that you would have said that you were glad to be outside. I wish you were here to bring me yet another disgusting trophy of a dead bird or mouse.
I’ll miss you always,

    May you take comfort in knowing that Cosmo knew how very much he was loved by all of you.

    Rainbow Bridge
    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    I was going to give you the Rainbow Bridge poem too. It has brought me some comfort in the past.
    I’m so sad for you and the whole family. I know there isn’t really anything to say that will make you feel less pain right now, but know that I am thinking of you and here if you need an ear to listen.
    Love ya!
