The 4 of December our cat Kalle was involved in a car accident, losing what was left of his tail. He had lost half his tail in a door related accident a year ago. Unfortunately all his ability's was not reformed after his latest accident and he entered the big sleep today. What remains is a lot of fond memories and anecdotes, he was a cat full of "derring do". We live close to quite heavily trafficked roads and has a tram line in front of our house, so we guess he had already spent his other eight lives.
