Dear Jeanette, I am sorry to tell you that Leonard has passed away. On Tuesday, 16th January at 20:05, I heard commotion outside my flat next to the Galaxie hotel. I heard a woman shouting “No, come back, come back!” followed by some car horns tooting. I thought that she had lost control of her dog, or child, but as I approached the window I heard a bang. A man in a silver Volvo had hit Leonard with his car. The man did not stop, however the woman who had shouted ran into the road and was punching the car as it drove off. Another witness ran to look for a vet. Leonard had lost a lot of blood, he had many injuries and was no longer breathing, I believe he died instantly from the impact, and therefore did not suffer. I reported the incident to the police via my mobile phone. Two cyclists carried Leonard to the path and I wrapped him up in a sheet from my house. We did not know who the owners were, so I wrote a letter to you and left it with Leonard, I watched from the window most of the night. Leonard’s body was taken by the council the early next morning after the snow fall, along with the letter, and I have thought about Leonard every day since. I am glad that I now have your contact information so that I may let you know what happened. But, I am so sorry that the news is not better. Warmest regards and with deepest sympathy, Your Summertown neighbours at 194.

Oh Juliette - what sad news to read here. I was heartened to read that there were kind people at the scene to look after Leonard. It goes to show that there are good, caring people out there looking out for our little four-legged friends while they are out on their adventures. I'm sure Leonard will be greatly missed. A fine, majestic looking cat if ever I saw one!
