yesterday i had to say goodbye to my first ever pet, the cat i chose from my cousin's cat's litter when i was only 3 years old. for the past almost 23 years, she has been my sidekick, following me around, meowing for me to brush her or pick her up, sleeping outside my room, and eating anything and everything off my plate that was safe for her. because of lockdown, i have been away from home and couldn't spend her last couple of months with her, or be there for her passing. that will hurt forever, but it was time.
i love you so, so much munchkin. the house isn't going to feel like home without you. i don't know it without you there.
