So my favorite cat died last month. Took me a while with all of the recent business travel I’ve been doing to get a proper DJ thread dedicated to her, but I didn’t want it to go unremarked.
Sneekers was a great little friend. Great attitude, incredibly soft and cuddly, and could make the loudest purr you ever heard. It wasn’t a tragic loss or a sudden one. She was 15 and had led a fine, long cat life. In the end, she had become sick and was ready to go. It’s just sad because my wife got her a few years before we even met. She had been there as Mrs Thrill and I fell in love, married, and had kids. And got a dog. Then a couple of other dogs. Sneekers leaving us represented the end of an era.
Mrs Thrill was so upset, she went out and got a new cat the next day. Yeah. Rapid grieving process, right? As much as I loved Sneekers, this new cat is the shit. What? You think the cat would care if we died first? Please. Have you ever met a cat?
Let’s pay tribute to the cats, our second-best friends who warm our hearts and crap in boxes.
