'Real Housewife' Alex McCord

Real Housecat

Really Run Over by a Car

"Real Housewives of New York City" star Alex McCord and her family are dealing with a real tragedy -- their beloved cat Madge passed away this week after she was hit by a car. 

Neighbors discovered the cat lying in the street on Wednesday after she managed to get out of the house. McCord said Madge's body was still in perfect condition, so the family (including their other cat Erin) was able to say their goodbyes.

McCord says the death of Madge has been difficult to explain to her two boys, adding, "We talked about how … she was different because she wasn't alive anymore. They each wrote her a little note which we put in a box we buried her in and put a marker above her grave."

RIP ... cat.

It's not always easy to keep a cat inside the house. Plus there's two children in this home going in and out. They can dart out fast when you open the door. Yes they should have been more careful but sometimes it really isn't all that easy to keep them in. They can really become determined to get out and just wait for an opportunity.

How did that cat get outside? I have two cats, 12 and 8 years old and they have never been allowed outside. Poor little fella.

Are your people serious. It was a damn cat and I think there are a huge amount of different topics that are a bit more imporant that some reality show person losing their cat. Like ....really..a cat..this is news worthy. Just please!!!

it's your own fault for letting it out. one of our cats at my parent's house was killed by a car, and another by a psycho with a pellet gun. the cat that was shot limped/crawled home, went to the couch, and when my parents found him later, they wasted thousands of dollars on surgery trying to save him.

Sorry for your loss    

Alex and Simon, it's clear you love your children and pets; so sorry this happened... sometimes losing a pet is exactly like losing a family member, and this may have been one of those times. Take care, so sorry for kitty.

Some do care, a-holes. Keep your kitties indoors with toys, attention and scratching stuff. They live longer, get used to it and are just as happy.

F-you to people who think caring about pets is beneath you.

"McCord said Madge's body was still in perfect condition" Cat gets hit by a car and its body is in perfect condition. Do you morons EVER listen to what you say? They cat is dead and its body is NOT in perfect condition.

What a shame. Cat should be a TV star, and Alex should be run over by a car.

LAWSUITS are the newest way to get free publicity. Can't wait for judges to start schooling these people for wasting taxpayer dollars. If indeed an actual claim was really filed. In reality though... This woman in no way built up a hundred million dollar a year biz quickly and with no experience. PLEASE!!!
