You found your cat dead in your yard. My neighbors thought that a dog had gotten loose and killed it but they didn't know for sure. If they're right, I think that dog may have been mine. He had gotten out of our fenced yard, and I lost track of him for a day. When he came home he was all filthy with matted fur and what looked like blood and saliva all over his mouth. He's killed a squirrel before, but never a cat. I hope that wasn't him who did that. If it was him, I am so sorry. I'd tell you to your face, but there is the chance it wasn't my dog, and I can't bear to lose him. He really is a good dog. I hope you can forgive. And I'm truly sorry for your loss.
