She was my best friend for 17 years. Always unconditional love- she saved my life just by being many, many times.. her passing left me eviscerated, with a cat shaped hole in my heart I feared might never mend. It is still there, and even with the love of all my other cats, she is the soul- kitteh... and I never go a day without missing her. That cat shaped hole has grown furry around the edges, and is not as sharp as it used to be... but will never ever mend entirely until we meet again and I can hold her in my arms. I love you Nellie, now and furever.
