Farewell by Skyrion Farewell by Skyrion
Go forth~ We will join you shortly.

A tribute to my cat, Momo. He passed away two days ago at the animal hospital after bravely combated death for more than a year.

I always know that we human will outlived them, I felt mentally prepared for when the time comes... or so I thought. It's devastating. I though his health is turning for the better but sadly no.

Momo is the most gentle cat I've known and has always been by my side. Slow to anger and always ready to lay down next to you. He is also my source of stability for my emotion.

I thanked him for these 5 years of companionship and I hope to meet him again in the future, if I'm good enough.

I miss him so much. At least, he's at a place with no pain and suffering.

Oh dear, sorry. Their little hairy hearts add so much to life and love, a meaning and impact far larger than their physical size. Cry, remember, grieve, heal.

Looking how beautiful this is I'm sure he knows how much you love him, in present tense 'cause pure love never ends. I lost mine in a car accident a month ago and even though hurts like hell I feel so lucky to have just been with him, like if it was he who adopted me and not vice-versa. So thank you, and thank Momo for this beautiful work of art born from your mutual affection

A beautiful tribute to Momo. I am so sorry for your loss... It's never easy to lose a furriend, even if there is time to prepare ourself. But I am sure, Momo is very thankful that you were by his side all these years and that you let him go... I lost my lovely soul Alice seven years ago in a carcrash and I wish I would've had time to say goodbye. May Momo get safely over the rainbowbridge and watch over you ♥

that really is a fantastic image. so good.  Sorry to hear about your friend, and yup, its hard when they go,  but its also the last thing they give, mourning w/o the complexity that people passing can bring, just the loss of a friend, I never had cats until my 30s but then they passed I balled like I was 3. I raise a glass to you and your pal!

This is absolutely stunning. I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious boy <3

I lost my girl back in October and I definitely agree that you can never truly be ready for when they finally pass. 
I had her for almost 10 years years, she was my source of happiness and was the kindest soul I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

To all the beautiful creatures we've lost, and to the precious angels God has received.

I feel this so much .. i have lost my cat a few months ago ... also those two little cats next to the person, that obviously is you. after my cat died of cancer, after 16 beautiful years, we adopted two cats, that otherwise would have ended up in a shelter.

This piece of art makes me cry everytime i look at it, cause it... it touches my heart!

Thank you so much!

Yes, one of the other two kitties, 'Little Face' seems to be extra clingy to me these few days. Trying to console me I guess.

Ah hun I’m so sorry for your loss, kinda reminds me of my cat her name was Sasha and she had been with me since the day I was born, and she was getting really old (she was 21 years) so we prepared to say goodbye.. but we never got to say goodbye she just left, and at the same time she choose to die this way and I respect that, but it still hurts that we couldn’t say goodbye to her

Skyrion Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Wow, 21 years. You all really took great care of her. 

It's hard to get prepared for goodbyes, I realize that now. But I will see Momo in the future. So does you and Sasha.
