I'm very sorry to hear that Renee, that's terrible.

Sorry, Renee. They were probably just so aged they had no chance of escaping the mountain lion. If there's any consolation for you, they came into the world together and are together in the next. Really tough thing for you to have to go through. Pets are like a part of our family. Sending you a hug.
