This isn't the post I wanted to make today. This isn't a post I ever wanted to make. I'm on a few hours sleep and I'm very emotional so you'll have to forgive me. My dad woke me up early to let me know one of the things I was fearing most had come to pass.
My beloved cat Garfield passed away overnight.
The first time Garfield actually left the house I cried a lot. Luckily my mum and family were in the house at the same. She organised a search party and found him pretty quick. Then he disappeared for a whole week to get laid once. I've actually seen cats around town that look an awful lot like him.
I know some people might think it odd for me to be so emotional about a cat but today I didn't just lose a cat. I lost an important friend. So I hope you can understand that today I won't be visiting any blogs or anything like that. I'll catch up tomorrow or something. Today I just want to take some time for myself.
Today I hugged my dad for the first time in probably a decade. Today I lost one of the best friends I've ever had.
I should have done something. I noticed you weren't breathing right. I thought it was just your weight. I'm really sorry I didn't. I hope you can forgive me.
I love you. I miss you. Now I'm off to cry some more.
