Hello Everyone <3,
My name is Brooke, I am 19 years old and my little baby Gizmo died yesterday from a car. To give some background on Gizmo, he entered my life 2 years ago wandering around the house. My family had noticed him and we started giving him food and water, he was very weak and scared. He was just a kitten and he was a stray, it took us about 2 weeks for him to finally enter the house. He has only 1 eye, none of know what happened to his other eye, he is blind in. He was extremely ill and has extremely clumpy fur, after many vet visits and shaving off his fur, he was finally getting better and was happy again. He was so small, the vet estimated him to be around 8 months old when he entered our lives. He was a true survivor and extremely strong. We were told that if we did not bring him in, he would have died in a matter of days. After he was better, gizmo was finally happy again, even though it took him a lot of time to stop being scared and finally play and to live his best life. He was the most amazing cat, my best friend and SOOO loving. I could never fall asleep if he wasn't beside me, we were the bestest of friends which is why his loss is so devastating to me. I never knew i could love a cat as much as I loved him, I feel like I lost everything and a piece of me is gone, I can't function anymore and it's only been a day. He died from someone hitting him with their car and driving away, what ********. How could they do that. He's gone in a blink of an eye and I did not get to say goodbye. I don't think I can cope with his loss, he was my everything even though he was with the family for only 2 years, he had such a long life to live. Rest in peace my baby boy Gizmo <3 I will always love you, every tear is a kiss from me to you. -Brooke Attached a picture of Gizmo https://ibb.co/dxG7oy

I am so sorry to hear about your little guy Gizmo. It is very hard to lose your best friend. I know it is intense and raw right now and it will take a long time to heal. Please know though that Gizmo got to spend two amazing years with you. He got to know true love and had the chance to be a part of a family. What a gorgeous photo of him.
Sending you hugs Brooke, Fi

>>> He's gone in a blink of an eye...<<<< It is hard to conceptualize that these kinds of things happen on planet earth. You have a normal relationship and life is the same day to day and then suddenly...in the blink of an eye, everything changes. Your feelings and reaction as normal. And I am very sorry for your loss.
