my cat, who I had since I was 6, is gone. I just was crawling into bed last night, and saw her laying down already. which isn't too weird, but I was a bit surprised at where she was at on the bed. but even in the dark her eyes looked off. I touched her and she was stiff and cold.
I don't know what happened. earlier that day we were playing right there, where she died actually. she was fine then, seemingly spry. I combed her earlier yesterday, too, and she looked and acted completely normal.
I guess it could be old age, or maybe a stroke, even though she was only around 13 or 14. I thought she'd live to be in her late teens.
I just hope it was a peaceful death. it didn't look like she struggled, she was just laying there, almost like asleep. I'm glad it was at least in a spot that's familiar and safe.
I just don't know how to move past this. I guess time will help. she's been my friend since I was a kid and she was a kitten. I've cried about it, but at the same time I don't think I'm over the shock. and it's probably going to hurt more when I actually have to experience her absence from my daily life. just hope she's in a better place.

I'm so sorry. I understand the pain you feel losing a cat you've had most of your life, yet I don't completely understand since I've never found any of mine like that, having had all of them die in my arms instead. She was a huge part of your life, and the grief will probably come in waves. Don't feel like you have to hide it - grieve all you need to, however you need to. It is nice that she went peacefully in he sleep (assuming since you found her laying like normal instead of at an odd angle) in a place where she was safe and comfortable, a place where she had just been happily with you earlier. She knew she was loved, and just know she loved you too. I know we don't really know each other, but if you ever need someone to listen, or just tell stories about her, or anything, I'm here.

Sour Candy: Thanks to a few specific bronies (including one that's actually one of my best friends since I try to look past it) I hate MLP with a seething passion
