We grew up together. 18 years at my side, more loyal than anything in the world. The weirdest, best, and most loving cat, who loved meeting strangers, put up with my shenanigans (see pictures for just a slice of the shenanigans) for nearly two decades, who listened to me complain about school, Liverpool, and life, and who did and gave me so much more than words could capture. |
When I was 8 years old my mom told me I could get a cat. I had only one condition in choosing the cat: it had to chase my finger when I ran it along its cage. Only one cat did. I have no idea what I did to get so lucky with this cat, my first cat -- like hitting a grand slam on your first at bat.
This loss has hurt but I think way more about the fun and happy memories I've had for over 18 years with her rather than the last few days of her suffering. From playing fetch to loving every stranger. From letting me put her in build a bear outfits as a kitten to putting up with me putting her in my sweatshirt as a 16+ year old cat. The best natured cat with so much love.
Cheers to every one of you that showed her love over the years, she never met a person she didn't immediately love.
My sunshine. The absolute best cat, one in a million. Irreplaceable. My wee girl. Love you forever Sof Sof ❤️
