Today I had to say goodbye to my faithful companion, Summer, who's been by my side for 15 years. It was time for her to go, although I didn't want her to. I guess that's how most people feel who are left behind. I knew she couldn't stay as her health was failing, but you never really prepare yourself for the loss of those special fuzzy creatures.
Summer was an unusual cat. In fact she was more like a dog, which is probably why people who didn't fancy themselves to be "cat people" were drawn to her. She was simply very sweet and very communicative (even if misunderstood at times) and a character. She was an important member in my family and she changed my life in so many ways. The loss of her love and wonderful friendship will certainly be felt for a long time. I already miss her and the many ways she filled my life.
We sampled foods together . . .
. . . cooked together. . .
. . . drank together. . . .
. . . cohosted parties together . . .
. . . and rested together.
I am heartbroken but know how lucky I was to have her in my life for so long. She was the best.
