A light has gone out of the world.

Today, I came home from lunch to find my cat, Mittens, had died. She was hanging from the arm of the couch and apparently her heart had given out while she was trying to climb up.

I had her for five years. I rescued her from the street. Her previous owners had abandoned her and left her to fend for herself. When I moved into their old apartment in the Bronx, Mittens came to my door. I started feeding her and asked the neighbors if she belonged to anybody, and then they told me the story of how she had been abandoned by the people who lived in the apartment before me.

She was a wonderfully loving cat who always climbed into bed with us and loved her scritchies on the chin. I will sorely miss her. I'm sitting here with her body on my lap, holding her one last time. At least I know she isn't suffering anymore, as she had been very sick near the end. I'm not sure of her exact age but I've estimated it at about 18 years, which is pretty long for a cat.
