Goodnight, My Sweet Prince

Taking a turn away from space, philosophy, and communism, I just want to make a post about my sweet cat, Mitu. He was born on April 9, 2009. He entered my life June 17, 2009. I watched him play. I watched him grow older. He always loved Temptations and would beg and beg for them. When I had no other friends, he was there for me. Whenever I needed a void filled in my life, he’d be there to fill it. I never could even bear the thought of losing him, and I’d get frequent nightmares about losing it. I remember one night waking up to him standing on top of me, all bright and happy, his wet nose up against my face. His eyes would always sparkle, and he was very friendly. He was the cure to my depression, and the sunshine of my life.

When I woke up, when I’d come home from school. When I’d be bored… whenever. I’d find him and cuddle him. He’d often lick my face. His meow was the sweetest thing you’d ever hear.

A year and a half ago, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. The cancer was so advanced that there was nothing we could do about it other than give him steroids. The steroids did help him. When we did x-rays a week ago, the mass had significantly reduced. He was his normal self, until he started becoming weak and limp, and very passive. He wouldn’t eat, or drink water… not even his temptations. My mom forced him to drink some water and I forcefed him milk.

But there… there was nothing we could do. We had to put him down today. Today is officially the saddest day of my life. My dear friend. My dear family. My dear brother. You have had a good life. You are not in pain anymore, my sweet king. You are no longer suffering.

I will forever love you. You will forever be my sunshine. You will forever light up my life whenever I think about you. You will forever be my precious kitty. You may have departed your physical body, but you have not and will never depart our hearts.

Soft kitty, warm kitty
Little ball of fur
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty

And all the YouTube videos I’ve made of him, from newest to oldest:

This one shows Papu, who was sadly the victim of a coyote attack a few years ago. He was Mitu’s brother.

 

 

Well, the other cat videos are on my channel, recorded by a potatocam.

But I’ll link the earliest video I have of them, just so you can see how small he used to be.

 

Goodnight, my sweet prince. You will ALWAYS be in my heart. If I ever can name something after you, I will ❤
