This is my constant little companion of the last fifteen years, Apu. He was such a unique cat and loved me more than I could have imagined. Apu followed me everywhere in the house, slept right next to me and rubbed noses with me several times a day. I miss him so much and I think about him all the time. Even though he was a “mama’s boy,” Apu developed a strong bond with my husband over the years. Apu was a fighter and fought chronic kidney disease since 2005. We almost lost him when Apu was first diagnosed, but we were able to nurse him back to health with subcutaneous fluids, dozens of different attempts to find food he would eat and his incredibly strong nature. I adopted Apu, along with his brother, Homer, when they were very young kittens and they’ve always been together, so it’s been really hard for Homer since Apu has been gone. We all miss him terribly and will never forget his sweet, affectionate, demanding (and sometimes cantankerous) little personality.
I love you, Apu and you will always be in my heart. I’m so sorry that you went through such a tough ending. I will honor your memory by remembering all the wonderful times we had. On that day when we see each other again, I will rub noses with you until it hurts.
