Throughout all these years of my life I thought I didn't love anything until I realized my cat had only 3 days to live. The illusion I had created a thought of no friends but what I really had was my childhood friend, my dear cat, now old, & departing me today. I've spent my time crying, mourning my soon to be lost friend but I will always remember her.
Yesterday, my dear cat has had her last thanksgiving. She ate all she could and ate until her heart was content.
I've had her since I was 7 and she's departing me, now Nov 27, 2015 at 2 PM today. It pains me very much to watch a dear family member die. But it's in her best interest, she's been suffering these past 3 years. I cannot watch my loved one suffer anymore.
As I type this journal I have moments of tears rushing down my face because of the thought that she won't be here anymore to cheer me up like she used to when I was still in Elementary and Middle School. These past 3 years have changed her thus changing me too. Today I shall let her run around in the yard her first time in many years. I could tell you of every memory I have of her and how she came to be my beloved pet. How she chose me in that animal shelter. How she clawed through that cardboard box that the shelter gives to hold the cat until I arrive home safely.
She's always chosen my dad and I to be her person. I could describe to you how she was my light, my spark of hope and inspiration when I had my ups and downs. And lastly she was ALWAYS with me but today that has changed now she must depart me and my family to discover a new world hopefully. I wish my cat, Shadow, well and hope she finds me again in another time. Goodbye dear friend, for I will never forget all the memories, companionship, and love. And lastly I will never forget you, my russian blue kitty cat.
You surprised me with your catch of a cricket in the house considering you're blind and skin- and-bone because your old age has taken a toll.
