this weekend, our little family suffered a loss of one of its members - aston. after a weekend of grieving over the hardest decision we've ever had to make, i want to make sure i reflect on how amazing the past four years with him have been.
aston was such a special cat - the most cuddly, affectionate, and fluffy ball of purrs (or purr factory, as hemingway said). i had never met another cat like him. in fact, i am pretty convinced that he was our little four-legged angel. he helped us through years of uncertain plans, endless amounts of studying, and a new marriage and never minded tears in his fur or us laughing at his quirks.
he has taught us life lessons and left holes in our hearts; he will be sorely missed. rest in peace aston, we love you dearly.
