    I was in my mom's bedroom,

    and I heard her sobbing in mine. I walked over there, and I saw her with my sister. I awkwardly comforted her, and wanted to know what was wrong. I asked. "The cat died." She mumbled. I ran my hand up and down her back, I didn't know what to do. She said some very sad things to...

    Okay, so he wasn't actually MY cat,

    but he was a close friend. He belonged to one of our neighbors and would nap underneath another neighbor's truck. Every morning when I would walk to my bus stop he would always come out and let me pet him. Sometimes I would give him treats. He brought a ray of happiness into my...

    I Miss Mellie

    A week after my birthday I made the difficult decision to let Mellie go.  She was the light of my life with her sweet ways and loving nature.  I cry for her every day and don't know how to stop grieving for her loss.  Does anyone else feel this way?
