Swirl roamed the streets, learning to live on his own, losing touch with his original adoptive family. He eventually joined a managed colony of unowned cats several blocks away where there was good shelter and food on a regular basis. After confirmation that Swirl was no longer owned by anyone, he was enrolled in the PCFCI Trap Neuter Vaccinate Return program and was on his way to being neutered, vaccinated for rabies and treated for parasites. He had a bright future once again and hope of belonging somewhere.
Sadly, prior to being humanely trapped for his neuter date two days away, Swirl was run over by a car and killed. He was left to die in the middle of the intersection of a four way stop; a rather odd place for a cat to be killed.
PCFCI says a little prayer for the Swirls of this world. You lived and died as a result of human neglect.
