This is Creampuff. He actually passed almost four years ago, and this picture was taken mere days before his passing. Today would have been his 23rd birthday, but he still lived a very long life - 19 is no peanuts for a cat. He was a fluffy creamy Persian who got his name from his habit of curling up into a ball (like most cats) where he would then look like a creampuff. He had one of the angriest looking faces in the universe, and he constantly got visitors laughing at him. He didn’t mind at all, though, because he was also incredibly friendly. He always knew when you were sick, and he’s curl up with you. If you rubbed the seat next to you, he’d sit there and let you pet him. His purr was so gorgeous. He lived with my family from Christmas 1993 until just after Thanksgiving 2012. The night before he passed, he desperately tried to climb up onto my bed (which was high, so he had trouble being pretty arthritic) for the first time in ages. We cuddled as I was looking up ideas of human food for him since he had lost a lot of weight and was pretty thin. The next evening, he had curled up in a corner in the bathroom so as to not disturb us as he died. My parents found him and instead moved him next to the radiator so he would be warm. We put a soft towel over him so that it wasn’t heavy but would help keep him warm. We played some soft music and pet him gently until he stopped breathing. It was awful, but it was also beautiful. He was such a handsome cat right up until the end. And his face was still angry as hell. I miss him every day, and honestly, I’m glad to share this random bit with strangers here today, his birthday, of all days. I recently lost another cat this past summer, a cat who was Creampuff’s younger brother for his last six years, and my current furry friend, who never met Creampuff, the original cat love of my life, is so important to me. Thanks, buzzfeed. (is this a double post? I didn’t see the original post so apologies if this is)
