Yesterday we lost our family’s 19 year old resident cat, Portia. She joins her adoptive sister, Xena, who passed away almost a year ago. When we got these two cats as kittens a year after our father passed away to bring some brightness back into our lives, I think none of us imagined they’d be a part of our world for so long. Portia and Xena were fixtures in our home, it will feel very different without them. They were two very, very excellent cats. To our long-standing feline roommates, you will be sorely missed!
What makes a friend a friend? Let's be honest, there is no specific answer to that question, because we all see things differently and define friendship in a very personal way. For me though, there is a long list of reasons why @ymritz is my best friend. The space on here wouldn't even be enough to list all those reasons, but some of those are that she understands me, no matter what is going on (and often even without words), that she is always there for me, that she always listens to what I'm saying, that we go on the most epic and fun trips, that she is ranting about the same people I rant about (for good reason) and so much more. Of course I'm always there for her, too, and I'm always happy to listen to and help her. Needless to say, I'm also extremely proud of her for everything she has done and achieved! I can't even stress enough how important she is to me. A week ago, she made this spontaneous trip to surprise me over here - with the help of a friend - and I was speechless for a moment and am still glad that I didn't burst out in tears right then and there. ☺️ That whole day was amazing and I was so extremely happy that she was there and managed to distract me from everything else for two days! I'm still smiling just thinking about it. Everybody needs a friend like this! 🥰
@ymritz, I'm so glad that we have this amazing friendship! 🤗😘 #friends#friendship#bestfriends#besties#bff#truefriendship#friendshipgoals#bestfriend#friendsarefamily
