My darling, adorable, sweet, loving magical feline companion of almost 16 years passed away tonight at 6:30 pm at the offices of the greatest veterinarian I have had the honor of meeting and experiencing, Dr. Linda Iberg. I have never met a vet with such a connection to animals, the people who care for them, her calling, and a bedside manner and communication ability that is profound and rare. I am so lucky that Simba transitioned with the care and attention of this awesome and loving vet.

I am too much at a loss for words tonight to do this feline soul the justice she deserves. It is hard to believe that my long time soul-mate, friend and feline companion is now in heaven. There is a kind of unspeakable grief knowing that her physical presence has left the earth plane. Even people that hated cats and animals fell madly in love with her. I could not let the night finish without writing about the feline love of my life, Simba.

Simba, thank you for all of the joy you brought to my life and the lives of so many you have touched. Thank you for all of the hearts that you have opened. You will always be my favorite cat in the whole world. You are in my heart and I will never forget you.

I love you Simba, forever and always.
