I wrote this post through a stream of tears. Happy tears for the many years Snuffy was with us, and sad tears that we’ve had to part ways. Snuffy passed away peacefully in my arms very early this morning. She was active and playful until her very last day, and for that we are very thankful.
Snuffy was my companion for over 15 years. She was with me through the end of high school, all of my college/university schooling, UTD graduation, marriage, the death of my Dad, moving across the US, bringing home Willa, and so much more.
I can’t really think clearly enough to write more about her and her spunky sweet personality. So I’ve compiled some photos and videos from over the years if you would like to memorialize her with me.
She loved to go everywhere in the car with me. I used to carry her in a pink bag into all kinds of places – Blockbuster and Best Buy (to visit Anthony) to name a few!
She loved to nap, particularly cuddled up to me or under a Christmas tree when it was the right season for that. Her purr was loud and nonstop.
During Willa’s bath times, Snuffy would make her way into the bathroom because she knew we were a captive audience – we would pet her the whole time as she enjoyed the warm and humid air.
Watching Willa and Snuffy’s bond develop was the absolute sweetest thing, Willa cared so much for her and talked to her like a friend.
September 1st was Snuffy’s estimated birthday. She turned 16 this year and we celebrated all the wonderful years we had with her so far. Little did we know that less than 2 weeks later we’d be saying our final goodbyes.
We are blessed to have known and loved her for so long but it’s never enough time, truly. She was a one-of-a-kind cat and I’ll never forget her.
