To My Beloved Kitty,
It’s been four years since you’ve been gone. I miss your sweet face and the sound of your collar as you shadowed me after I was out all night long. I can’t even begin to tell you how many videos I have of you eating, sleeping and me just putting toys all over you innocently asking you why you did that because it gave me immense amusement. I am so happy I have all of those videos and pictures. You were 14 years old and you were more of a best friend to me than some were ever at that time.
When we made the decision to let you go, in fear of you being in agonizing pain in the coming weeks, it was the most difficult decision I ever had to make. But that’s what you do when you love someone, you do it for them and what would make them the most happiest and comfortable. I am so happy I took you outside one last time because it was your favorite thing to do. You were an indoor cat but oh my gosh, did you love the adventures of being outside. I’ll never forget the time I was leaving to go back to school, a half hour away and I put you over my shoulder and started to walk down the stairs before my mom made me give you back haha You let me do whatever I wanted to you… which was usually videotape you doing pretty much anything and everything while I talked to you and told you how much I loved you. I’d constantly put a circle of toys around your body, almost like a way to honor you, as if the toys were candles or a bunch of flowers lol
You are my forever friend and I hope you’re somewhere peaceful frolicking in the sunflowers and cabbage bushes. You were the most to me in such lonely, sad times when the people in my life at the time didn’t even matter enough. You’d sit on my bed all hours of the night and eat cheerios with me while I videotaped and told you I loved you for the infinity time. I will also never forget the time when Ma passed away. I sat on the couch in disbelief and you came and sat right next to me. It was like you were comforting me in your own sweet way.
I love you. I pray for you all the time. And I miss you dearly.
