i adopted little one a few days before my father died in October 2007 and he helped me cope with his loss. my little cat was the sweetest and noisiest animal i have ever had. he didn’t follow me around the house, he walked perfectly at my side and meowed every second. he died a week ago and it is very hard for me to grasp it. he was only 10 months old when the heart problem that no one was aware of took him. my house is so quiet now. every time i open the door i expect him to be there meowing and meowing until he wore himself out from it. i miss making my boyfriend hold him when i left for work because he would meow and try to run out the door after me. i hope he is okay wherever he is and he knows that my beautiful little man was loved.
