One of the worst things about owning a pet is the inevitable moment where you have to say goodbye. While we would all love for our pets to live with us forever, the sad reality is that they have an expiration date, and no matter what we do, we will have to come to terms with the fact that we will outlive them.
We’re sorry to do this to you, but this article is about to get emotional and sad. To help you through it, we will show you some pictures of happy cats so that you won’t spiral out of control. Let’s start with this one.
Several months ago, a cat named Andrew became internet famous for a very heartbreaking reason. His owner uploaded a picture of him, which would, unfortunately, be the last image of the cat before he died.
As you can see, Andrew and his owners shared an intimate moment. This photo was taken on the way to the vet, where this fifteen-year-old cat would say his last goodbyes. Knowing that it was the end, he reached out and let his people know that he would quietly into the night. Here is another happy picture.
Reddit user Abherna3 uploaded the image, and it went viral immediately. According to him, Andrew as a loving and caring cat who lived a long and fruitful life. Unfortunately, Andrew had gotten sick, and it was time to say goodbye. In Abherna3’s words, “He purred every day of his life, and when he lost that, I knew it was time."
After the image went viral, other people shared their heartbreaking stories of saying goodbye to their pets, in what had to be the most depressing thread ever. Hopefully, wherever Andrew is now, he is still holding his owner’s hand. If you need a break, here’s another smiling cat. We’re going to cry our eyes out.
