Reader mourns pet, Halloween thanks

Reader mourns pet

I am writing this letter regarding the death of my cat, Creampuff, a little 6-pound, part-Siamese who was on my porch Friday, Nov. 3.

I was away for one hour (4:30-5:30 p.m.) and found her lifeless body close to a tree in my yard.

Her little body was bloody and wet and she was also bleeding from her mouth. One eye was shut and the other partially open.

I wrapped her in a blanket and rushed her to the vet’s office. It was already too late — she was dead.

I am devastated and still crying after three days. I only had her four short years.

She was a victim of a mean and vicious (large) dog attack and died from a punctured lung.

If anyone saw this dog and witnessed this cruel attack, I would appreciate your coming forward.

My sweet cat deserves this — she was a trusted companion.

Dog owners should keep their animals on their property!

Halloween thanks

My family and I, along with so many families in Farragut, want to thank Margaret and Bill Johns for opening their home and “Haunted Farm” for this past Halloween.

The Johns’ have captured the spirit of autumn and Halloween that I remember so fondly as a child growing up here in America.

The Johns’ went over the

top on the decorations and


Walt Disney would be impressed with the homemade Halloween crafts, flying ghosts, graveyard, dancing skeletons, scarecrows and silhouettes.

We have participated in several of the community’s fall functions over the years and they do not compare.

Likewise, the “Haunted Farm Bash” on the Saturday before Halloween was quite incredible.

My children are still talking about the party and all the “pirates, cowboys, heroes, villains and other creatures” they met.

We can’t wait to see some of the pictures on the ”Haunted Farm” Web site.

Thank you again for ensuring that the spirit of fall and Halloween remain fun for all ages.

Tracy Wilson
