A dedication to my best friend in General Discussion Posted February 20 · Edited February 20 by VADM Fangschleister On 2/17/2021 at 5:19 PM, andyf117 said: RIP Sofka, my Sofka; my beautiful cat; my bestest girl... Andy, A heartfelt and touching tribute to a wonderful pet. I grieve with you as many here do, I'm sure. Our pets do become such solid anchors to our own existence and I, for one, forget how, as one person has said, "They are with us for a short period in our lives, but for them we are there for their whole life." That has been in my head since Jan 4 this year and I still feel devastated. I suppose it will get easier as time passes but yes, I understand the enormous space that has been left. They are our alter egos and our friends, asking for very little and giving us so very much. I hope the coming days will find you and your wife at peace knowing that you've been fine guardians for a wonderful animal and that you can dwell on the good more than the absence.
