Hi everyone. Cecil died today. He was two years and five months old.

I knew this was a possibility since his tumor diagnosis last week, but besides eating a little less he had no symptoms of illness. He was his normal old self, even this morning. I dropped him at the vet for surgery this morning at 8, told him I loved him, and he licked my neck a couple times between snuggling and exploring in my jacket. Around 2pm, my vet called as Cecil was just getting settled in recovery and told me he had passed.

He’s been my sweetest buddy since he was a month old and helped me through so many hard times on my own. He’s been on road trips with me, vacations, off at university, back home. I can’t believe he’s gone. I don’t even know what to do with myself. It’s stunning how empty my house feels. I can hardly bear the thought of his tiny little self alone up at the vet’s. I sent his baby blankets and his little stuffed animal lovey with him, and I hope he was comfortable when he passed.

I miss my tiny buddy so much. These are the first and last pictures I took of him. I won’t bury him or scatter his ashes because he always hated being outside, so he won’t rest well. Cecil I love you so much my sweet bug. I’m only glad you aren’t hurting.

I am so sorry for your pain as precious Cecil moves on to his new life. The loss is truly incredible. You deserve time to grieve as you adapt to your changed world.
