Many years ago, when I was born, we bought this cat and named it "Rasmus." His fur is elegant, orange like but more yellow glow.
I grew up with this cat, and I've always felt a unique bond with that cat, above anyone else, even more unique bond that I had with my family, and I do love them. It was like he was protecting me everywhere I went. Even helped my parents to locate me if I had gone wild in the forest in Norway as child.
Unlike any other cat, he was like the king of all cats nearby. Everyone bowed down to him, but not with fear, but with respect. A few years after we bought him, we brought another cat we still have, that we named "Sarah," a cat with very strong personality. They 2 was like a couple, it's a rare thing I ever get to see between cats. Anyway, I just wanted to explain what this cat meant for me.
When I turned 13, the cat got older and older, but still in good shape, but his back legs got weaker and weaker. I do remember he was once shot in his leg but was healed. However, he got worse and worse, and before it was too late, my mom and dad and my family, all of us, took him to the doctor to end his pain. He was in deep pain, and couldn't walk anymore, barely move.
My heart broke once we left and got home. But it didn't feel like goodbye. For days, weeks I cried, I loved him so a lot. I can't explain how badly it hurt. Until one night, I don' know if I was asleep or not, but he lays silent in my bed, with a magical, unique glow. Starring at me, and I slowly, pet him, with all the time we have left. It was like we was speaking with our heart's and mind, and I lifted him up, and held him tight to my chest, and he slowly disappeared, and the last word I got to say was... "Goodbye."
It was the most amazing feeling in the world. I knew it was him, I knew he was there, and I am sane. I could feel his fur, and I could recognize him. I finally got to say goodbye, and spend the last time I had with him. Who wouldn't want 3 more minutes with lost ones. He was more then a cat. He was a part in my life, that raised me.
