  • This precious gem became my best friend after my first cat passed away. He was the sweetest thing, not a flaw about him, minus the fact that wearing black was difficult; I always had evidence of his hair somewhere on me. He slept next to me every night, and I woke up to him every morning. Anywhere I went around the house he was right behind me making his normal "hissing meow."

    One morning I woke up strangely early realizing there was a bad storm outside, so I got out of bed to find my cat for comfort. He followed me into my room, drank out of my toilet, and laid in my bed for a second acting completely fine. I ended up dozing back to sleep, then a hour or two later I woke up to my little brother crying mumbling, "Dazel is dead." He was laying down at the very end of the hallway lifeless. I cried for a good bit, but after experiencing my first cat passing away not even a year ago, I was kind of used to this feeling of losing something important to me. I just felt guilty of not knowing what was wrong with him. Was he in pain? Was he trying to tell me he was sick? This is why I hate becoming attached to an animal I own, because something always ends up happening to it.

    It has been almost 3 weeks since you passed away and I miss you. This black shirt I found in my hamper has your hair all over it, but it's okay.

    R.I.P Dazel baby
