We live in the U.K.and until Sunday,3rd July,2005 a lovely young lady named Jodie also lived there until her tragic,violent and painful death on that date.

The lovely lady to whom I refer happened to be a cat but the fact that she was not human does not detract in any way,shape or form from the tragedy,violence and pain involved in her death.
Jodie died as the result of a tragic accident by becoming trapped between a small opening in a cellar window and the window frame at a neighbouring house

We appreciate that every household,without exeption,will more likely than not have open windows at some time or other and we have no issue with that.

Our issue is with the specific setting the open window was on combined with the position of the window caused Jodie’s tragic and painful death and we are greatly concerned that other cats may suffer a similar fate to Jodie if this problem is not remedied.Thus the reason for us bringing all of this to your attention.

Jodie approached the open cellar window at ground level.The top of the window begins just above ground level so most of it is below ground level.She will inevitably have been drawn there by the air coming from the cellar being different from the open air around her and in true cat style could not resist exploring it for a closer sniff.She evidently leaned over too far and fell forwards causing her head and neck to land in the narrow end of the small triangular gap that was the windows opening and her back feet to be over a foot from the ground.

Some may believe this to have been a freak accident that consequently will probably not happen again but this is not the case because in this case the householder had only just placed her open cellar windows on that particular tilt and turn,narrow setting and within hours Jodie was dead.This indicates just how high the risk of that setting combined with the position of the windows is.

Jodie had lived in the area for 5 years unharmed and died only as a result of the new setting.
Even in view of all of the above the householder is flatly refusing to remedy the risk currently being posed to cats in the area which are many due to the areas high cat population.Consequently Scamp is not only grieving but also housebound.

We are not singling that one household out but respectfully ask that ALL households with a similar cellar window set-up be aware of the life-threatening risk it poses and rectify that risk accordingly.
The trauma now suffered by her human family should not be underestimated because their loss is every bit as great as the loss of a human family member.

Jodie also leaves behind a 5 year old son Scamp who had not spent a single day apart from her since his conception and who is now lost and bewildered without her(see attached pic).We do not want other families suffering a similar fate!
All that is required is a simple mesh/grill to be placed over the cellar window area allowing fresh air into the cellar without posing a life-threatening risk to cats.

If the household where Jodie died continue to refuse to allow mesh/grills to be put in place despite us offering to raise funds for the same,we will be forced to draw up a petition which you will,if you live locally or else happen to encounter us while petioning, respectfully be asked to sign.

Thank you for reading this important warning.

Jodie's grieving family.
