Well, I never really thought I’d be writing one of these posts, but I’ve changed my mind. I’m going to write a eulogy for my beloved cat Lucky.
We have two other cats, and I think they’re both great, but my relationship with Lucky was something else altogether. She was born a stray, and for all her life she kept that wild streak. She was very shy – except with me. Over a long period of time I gained her trust, and in return she gave me a level of trust and love that she gave to no other human… no other being. I was her lifelong provider, protector, admirer, and friend. And I was the one who made the decision to let her go yesterday. I was with her at the end – the last thing her eyes saw were my eyes. She will be in my heart forever.
