Today would've been my cat, Buddy's 18th birthday.
Sadly, he passed away on August 2nd, 2017 after a long, tough battle with illness. I still miss him every day.
He was my childhood cat - I adopted him when I was five. He died when I was 18, and it felt like my childhood died that day, too.
He was there for me during a lot - heartbreak, bullying, abuse, anxiety, depression. He never judged. He just loved me, which is more than I can say about the humans in my life.
Wherever you are now, Buddy, I miss and love you. I hope we will meet again one day.
Your forever friend,
