Sweet, sweet Sagan lost a dear friend today. Here is her beautiful letter to her cat.
“adios, old man juan carlos. some 17 years of causing a ruckus with your ornery nature by day, and your hilariously particular biscuit making by night. i always pitied the fool who looked at you when you kneaded dough. thank you for beating my human brother up whenever you smelled his fear. seemed like you did it for my entertainment, a true feline gent! and the way you won over the entire oncologist’s office by showing your tender and grateful side during your squamous cell carcinoma treatment—priceless. you ruled that joint and were referred to as the receptionist’s boyfriend. not to mention you kicked that cancer’s ass. that was four years ago, and you kept a special sweetness ever since. tonight it rained for you. mi hermano bonito, tu familia will always cherish memories of you. rest soundly and enjoy the transition. til next time.”
