Victoria by Heather / Heather

Two and a half years ago, my world came crashing down as my first cat was put to sleep. At the age of 16, I didn’t know what to do. Minnie had been my first animal and I loved her more than anything… I was crushed. I never thought I could love another animal ever again. In fact, I didn’t think I would ever want to, just knowing the pain of losing one.

But 2 years ago, two adorable bundles of fur, Angel and Victoria graced my life. I put my fears of losing them to the back of my mind and I loved unconditionally. For 2 years, I loved with all that I could.

Victoria, chose me. She would sleep on top of me at night, and Vic, you only purred in front of me. Unfortunately I had to leave for school, but my mother assured me Vic would not forget me when I was gone. The day I was leaving for school, I was walking out of the house, but I stopped, turned around, and gave Vic one more hug and kiss. Vic, I never thought that would be the last time I’d see you alive.

A week later Victoria was hit by a car, and died instantly. Vic, you showed me that I could love again, and I will never forget you. I miss you so much. Even though you were only here for a short time,
I will always love you.
