"Rambo" is this beautiful cat you see in the picture above.
He left planet earth via car probably speeding around the bend and the ground was covered in ice so yeah..
This had happened after my whole family had moved to Pennsylvania while I stayed behind in jersey.
At the time when the bank finally put an end to us living at that old house
I had been out and about in life due to drama at the house, not good terms unfortunately..
Before I knew it my home had a big ass lock on it and it's illegal for me to even be on the property I was raised on.
They moved, along with all of our animals at the time
We had patched things up relatively quickly after the move
But a 3 hour drive is a 3 hour drive and my car wasn't able to make that drive to even see them.
So about a year goes by maybe 2 and fast forward I'm waking up to my father giving me the phone and my mother
crying/screaming about how my homeboy here was done very wrong by some stranger in pa.
Of course I was sad
but being that I have dealt with pet death many times
I guess I just realized he was gone and that was it.
The reason I'm posting this is because
A. Rambo was a really cute and dope cat and I wanted to pay homage (grew up to be a lil grump tho before he passed<3)
B. I see the connection our animals have to us, I understand how they can feel human too sometimes
I'm not sure if reincarnation is a thing but if it is
Our pets stand as our friends with their own personalities but they are animals at the end of the day.
When death hits one of these pure, lively creatures it is heartbreaking.
Cause shit yo it's sad as fuck like look at that face you for real?
But death comes to all things, being cute does not excuse when the reaper come.
Sometimes it's sudden like my friend up there
So the second reason is tell you all that love them but remember nature always wins and excepting it just means loving the hell out of these little things while they're still around with us.
C. I wasn't around for his last years as I said, I guess in a sense I feel I owe him a whole lot of love and I'm not gonna while writing it was hard not to get a little emotional because I loved this cat. He was just great and he meant a lot to me.
Finding out he left the way I did definitely left me shook so here's to you Ram
I miss laying down and feeling your purr on my chest
I miss the way you'd almost smile when you got good boy head rubs
Every time I see a cat with that cool pattern I get a little sad
I loved ya little guy, it really sucks you and many other fragile souls are no longer here to play and enjoy life.
Love your pets, but remember you may not always get to see them sleeping like a bunched up fur ball in the corner
Appreciate life in general. It comes and goes.
Thanks for reading my feels post.
Have you ever wondered why life can suck pass the point of understanding sometimes.
A lot of people complain but it's rare to find someone active in changing themselves for the better.
LIFE IS SHORT
Drake once said, "YOLO" - you only live once
You see people wearing the slogan on T-Shirts and hats but do they people really live like that?
From what I've seen, not really...
same job, the same pay, the same friends passing the same blunt in the same rotation for 5 years.
PEOPLE FORGET HOW INCREDIBLE THEY COULD BE WITH A LITTLE EFFORT
Do not let routine determine who you are
If you feel stuck, change your routine.
Don't forget the idea you have today could be the centerpiece of your future.
Sometimes it happens out of nowhere with no warning
Sometimes peace is only achieved through hardships and growing from them.
PAIN IS NOT THE ENEMY
Pain comes with life
So does Love
But overall the life you live is how you respond to life coming with all of those things.
BE STRONGER THAN YOUR EXCUSES
Travel, see some of the world, figure out a way many people have done it.
Wake up early, create time for yourself and find something that fulfills you for a hobby.
Meet people of all walks of life and don't put walls up based on no information other than fear.
If you feel like; your job, your relationship, your family, your friends, whatever the case
Is hurting you.. is changing you from the person you like being.
Everybody who makes you feel uncomfortable is being allowed by you to do so.
Don't worry about life too much and try not to overthink it. I know it's hard
I promise stressing on a single thought or several thoughts goes nowhere
As it starts, just have somewhat of a meeting with yourself.
Establish that regardless of your mind and it's nonsense
You know better than to be broken down by your own delusion and fight it with confidence
(the silence in your mind is almost surreal, I hope this works for you as well)
Just know you're doing your best and if you're not, then start
It's easier said then done of course, but like I said life is effort.
(Terms of the floating rock ya feel me)
The evidence for this being a supernatural place to be is overwhelming
using references from everything from science to religion.
Whatever we're all tied in is over our heads to some degree
Excepting that reality is like removing a weight from your shoulders.
Life is not supposed to be simple it's supposed to be a out of comprehension roller coaster sometimes
But.. stay for the ride and when you look at the picture at the end
Tell me you weren't rocking a big smile while free falling.
Remember that next time life has you twisted up.
Hope this helps a few people out there, now that people are visiting in bigger numbers
I see increasing interest, let me meet or talk to some of yall!!
I know EVERYBODY struggles and I'm here with you so don't be shy
