#i love my cat so much y'all

Dear Pet

My Lily, 

I don’t think you have any idea how important you are to me. In this world that is filled with so much evil, hatred, strife, and upheaval, you are something I can always look to and say “But here is one thing that is truly good.” It frequently reduces me to tears, seeing how good you are. 

You are so gentle. Even when you’re playing, chasing shadows across the bathroom floor like a thing possessed, you do so with a delicate grace that makes me want to protect you forever. When you softly pick your way across the blanket to settle on my lap, my heart breaks. My favorite, though, is when you cuddle with me on Bad Nights. You push under the comforter on my bed and flop over along my side, purring steadily as I scratch your tummy. You honestly let me cuddle you like a teddy bear. 

I don’t know how I would have survived high school without you, sweetie. You’re so good, and so gentle, and you love me so much. I’m so honored that you’ve chosen me as Your Person. I only hope I can live up to the amount of trust you invest in me. 

Your parent, 
- S.
