Her purring and labored breathing faded away, and she died in my arms, after five hours of me holding her, and telling her what a good girl she was, and how much she was loved.
It wasn’t enough.
She was my very best friend. I could tell her anything. She never judged me, labeled me, or made me feel bad about myself. I can’t say that about many human beings I’ve met.
I can’t tell you how much it fucking hurts, losing a familiar.
