My cat Tofu never liked to go outside. He was a really particular cat, but like every other cat, super curious. Two days ago he decided to go outside for the first time in 9 years, he got through a little space of an open window. We looked for him for hours but he didn't respond to our callings. About 4am, we heard a cat fighting with dogs. It was him. My mom went out, and she brought him to my arms. He was bad injured but I could tell he wasn't suffering. I heard him breath a few times, as my dog licked him to get him better. Then, he passed away, peacefully while I was holding him. My beloved Tofu. Before he died I told him I loved him so much and I was so glad he came home and not dying alone and scared. He was with me and my dog, both loved him so much. That's the only thing that makes me comfort. He died with his loved ones.
My dog and I feel so empty now. My cat wasn't even loud, but the house looks so quiet now. I don't know if I ever will feel better. This is a hard time for us. Rest in peace my beloved and rebel Tofu. You always did whatever you wanted, until the end. You lived a long life full of love and gave us plenty of good memories.

You wrote a sweet message to Tofu at the end of your post. I'm sorry for your loss. Tofu sounds like a wonderful cat and during his last minutes he was so relieved to make it back to your arms. It's so hard to say goodbye to them. He is still around you though. If your dog ever stares out into space like he is looking at something it may be Tofu, and Tofu will visit in your dreams sometimes. There are many ways they try to communicate with us that they are around. Grieving is a difficult thing to go through but with time things will feel better. I'm glad you have your dog and your family for support.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Tofu is such a great name. It’s so hard when we lose them so unexpectedly.
