Cuddling next to me in the bed
Rubbing your furry face against my cheek
Your are my bedfellow of nineteen years.
Soon I will lose you to death.
Taking a piece of my soul with you,
Another cat will never take your place
*Crysta is nineteen years old. She was diagnosed with kidney disease two years ago, yet she has her mind and mobility.
