Angie says: My family lives in a small village in Norway. Storen, our grey tabby, was a rescue from a neighbor of my brother-in-law who could not find homes for the kittens born to his cat. He owned the father and the mother was feral. Storen means "the big" in Norwegian, and he was named by my son who was two when we took Storen in. Storen was very shy at first, but warmed up to us and became very sweet, fun, and tolerable of a little boy running after and catching him all the time. Sadly, we lost Storen last fall. He was hit by a car, presumably in our own driveway which is shared with four other houses. He was only a year and a half, but I still feel the loss deeply.

You know what I like most about this? That you have this leathercouch that clearly shows that Storen used his claws on it and yet you tell us how much you loved him. I know that's "nothing special" for a catlover, but having experienced quite a bunch of people who gave their pets away for 'ruining' their couchs and the like... this is something that shows me how loving a home Storen had.

Thank you for sharing your story and the images... *hugs*

Mysstera is right; our beloved kittehs are more important than mere furniture. (Yes, we have a shredded leather chair!) So sorry for your loss. Please know you'll be together again someday on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Storen was in your world for too short a time. He was very handsome.

I weep for Storen and your loss. Storen was a life force. A big one. But not able to withstand a car. I understand how much you loved him and hope you will try again with another sweet kitty when you feel able to.

Storen was a lovely little kitten, and sounds like he was the ideal pet for a little boy. It's too bad you allowed him to run around outside - he would have been much safer kept indoors at all times.

May Storen rest in peace, he is a handsome kitty. Love all the pictures especially the one with the little snaggle tooth showing :)

What a sweet,cute and adorable looking little guy! I just want to give him a hug! From the size of those paws, his name is very fitting. I'm so sorry he's not with you anymore. I have 3 cats and I know I will miss them as deeply too. Looking at all these wonderful pictures you have of him must bring a big smile to your face and warm your heart in spite of the sadness you feel. I hope you get another kitty cat or two soon :) Best wishes!

He was very handsome and I am sorry for your loss. In the U.S. most of us keep our kitties indoors to avoid such tragedy, but I do know in other countries it is not the same. Still, I know you loved him and I am sorry for your loss.

What a lovely little boy kitty! So very sad that he had to go so soon. I know you miss him terribly. Maybe think about keeping your next kitten indoors so he will be with you for long years of love. They are so precious!!!!

I doubt cats understand how dangerous a driveway can be, especially if it is used by four cars. And cats like to sleep on warm engines. It's a constant challenge, and sadly, this little tiger lost the challenge.

It is so sad to hear that Storen was run over. Unfortunately cats are often not so road-wise. He is just gorgeous and it is obvious he was dearly loved during his short life. Even when you lose a cat to old age, it is always too soon to say goodbye.
