When I met Justin, I found that he also came with a cat. Not just any cat, a "Man cat". A fluffy cat weighing approximately 21 pounds. A large, large cat who took to me right away.
A cat who was always, always in the same room as us.
He really was a loyal cat who kept us really good company. Cats aren't in our lives forever, surely. But it's still hard to lose a pet. I am thankful that Harley had a good life with us. Now it has been 8 months since we said our goodbyes and I think back of him and smile. Losing a pet is hard, but the joy they bring us and the memories they leave us with outweigh the heartache, without doubt. Thankful for the time we had.
