"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.
