This morning I made one of the toughest decisions of my life.
I had to say good bye to my best friend.
He had been in my life for 20 years.
I like to think we chose each other.
That thought makes me smile.
I said good bye to Rebel this morning.
It was time.
He told me so.
There will never be another cat like that.
Someone to share a Big Mac and a glass of rye while we watch the Leafs.
If it was not for him, I would probably would not even be here.
He needed me.
I made him a promise to always look after him.
He looked after me.
He gave me a reason to get up everyday, go to work, come home, and enjoy life.
He would help me fall asleep, which is no easy task.
I return the favour this morning.
Right now I feel a little empty.
I am also really grateful that he chose to share his life with me.
Thank you Rebel.
