Oh, no, Jay. How terrible. It is one thing to lose a sick cat, but the shock of suddenly finding her bloody and gone must be even worse. 
There is really nothing I know to say that will help, but know that you are not alone in your mourning.

Any cat death is devastating. Didn't know Jay had cat. Sympathies go to survivors of that cat.

2Buckethead: you replied to NBBF by agreeing that cats wouldn't be described as nurturing types. To rephrase what you said, isn't it sweet that cats differ than dogs? Isn't cats' aloofness adorable? :D Don't tell no. police Cats don't nurture as dogs. So what? Why should they, ha?

RRA1 - I do appreciate the differences between cats and dogs. Yes, Kittie aloofness is adorable.  i have had a couple, however, who were quite like dogs in this regard, probably because they were raised my family from a few days old. I also like when cats are aloof but they cannot stand
it when they think a person (or dog) is the same.

Face it, Buckethead, cats better than dogs. 3D

Which music do your cats like to listen?

I really love cats and dogs equally. My kitties seem to enjoy my kids' Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Cannibal Corpse songs. This is probably because it is played at a decibel level that is physically stimulating and they start scratching furniture. Or, maybe it makes them nervous and that is why they scratch? Hard to tell. They don't react one way or another to Beach Boys music. Do your cats have favorite musc? How in the world do you tell what they like/don't like?

When people say they like this & this equally, it doesn't make sense. Ditto when people say they love their whole fam. I don't, frankly, get it. By my logic, it's impossible. There must be favorite fam members & everybody else you don't much care about. Now, treating everybody equally, this IS possible & should be.

Cat's favorite music is classical music, esp. piano. & he likes symphonies, esp. mellow. To tell if cat likes/ dislikes music is very easy - likes, starts blinking eyes in relaxed way; dislikes, cat starts being anxious. Just look at cat's face, I'd say.

To Jay - I'm so sorry about the loss of your cat. :-(

Cats are fascinating - they can be so sweet, then suddenly turn "wild", showing that they are not nearly as domesticated as dogs. A dog will obey me if I tell him to do something. A cat will ignore me unless there's something in it for her.
My cats haven't seemed to react to music, other than not liking anything with flutes.
My dog doesn't like The Piper at the Gates of Dawn album.

I make sure to have flower arrangements in the house, particularly when my Mother is here. We also bring in flowers from outside when in bloom - we have gingers blooming now that have  a wonderful fragrance. Also tea roses,  and gardenias and amaryllis in the Spring. I however have zero luck with flowering plants in the house. African violets stop blooming after a while, and bringing orchids into the house is a death sentence for them. I don't water them correctly, I guess.
Green plants are great for indoors and can last many years. They help clean out the bad stuff from the air.
As for our cats, we don't have problems with them eating the fresh flowers. However we had a cat that would chew on dried flower arrangements then get sick.
When I buy flowers I have to take out any grasses that are included. I don't know how safe they are for cats, as they probably sprayed chemicals in them. I sometimes keep a long strand of grass so that the cat can bat at it.
I do let the cats out for a while in case they want to chew on some of our grass - we don't spray any chemicals on our lawn.
Cats are carnivores. They will eat some grass - maybe the grass has some nutrients the cat needs, or perhaps the cat wants to get rid of a hairball.
I have to go out for the day. Will look at the videos later on.

Yes. Cats carnivorous AND they eat greens. Any green save bucks, to be accurate.

That was pretty interesting to look through. I really liked #3, and the Egyptian one. I'm surprised Louis Wain wasn't on the list. He's probably my favorite artist.

Tanner the cat was chewing on some houseplants and got a little sick today. She threw up in her basket (the one in my avatar). When I came home I found out that my sister threw it away.
Kitty really loved that basket . She wants to be with us but my Mother understandably doesn't want her lying down on the dining room table. So I put that small basket on the table and Tanner made it her own, stretching it to fit her.
So I'll have to find her another basket. I had spent a grand total of one dollar on that basket at the dollar store. Hopefully they will have more available . Meanwhile I have a shoebox that she can use.

I usually buy the cat wicker basket, he's got 2 - walking basket with handle to mere walk or when it's bike walk, to adjust the basket to bike. In house - sleeping/ relaxing basket with little pillows & blanket. Handle-free.

My last cat's favorite spot to sit was literally on my shoulder.  Grin Whenever I was at the computer in the kitchen, she would climb up my chair until she was on an arm rest, then she would jump up in my shoulder, and just sit there. I used to play cat videos on youtube to see how she'd react.  LOL

What is the difference between a cat and a comma?
One has claws at the end of its paws, and one is a pause at the end of a clause.

RRA1 thought of you.
Facebook had post about a "Cat Chief" in Russia (didn't say what town). She is paid to take care of the strays there. She has an official uniform and a bike - she sometimes takes cats on rides in the bike's basket.
