Sad Stories But True

A grief-stricken `unemployed` pet owner killed himself because he struggled to cope with the death of his beloved cat, an inquest heard.

The 44 year old , was devastated after 13-year-old tabby cat Sophie died in his arms after suffering a stroke.

The recluse - who was not known by his neighbours - was so traumatised by the loss that the dead cat 'slept' on his bed for three days afterwards.

A man who came to collect Sophie for cremation was that he would kill himself.

Five days after the cat's death he posted a moving video in the moggy's memory on YouTube, which featured pictures of her backed with sad violin music.

His body was found eight days later on December 21 last year at his rented lodgings.

this is so sad. no soul deserves to be this lonely. what a sick and sad world we live in... while my partner devalues me with their addictions taking centre-stage, there waz a poor soul out there who had so much love to offer and so little support that it killed him. that just makes my heart break. thank you for sharing, at least that man's life waz not unnoticed. if not for the internet i would never have known this loving soul had existed... i'm sure Sophie knew how much she waz cherished and loved. (i have a 9 year old kitty that i love more than some of the humans in my world... i so get that.)
