It’s hard to “pen” my thoughts down for this as I am feeling almost as sad when my dog passed away 2 years ago. Yuniko, the cat in the office, has just been adopted by a family and I didn’t have time to say my goodbye. It feels as though a loved one has went away for good and I wasn’t able to see him one last time.
Due to various reasons, Yuniko’s owner couldn’t keep him anymore and she had to find another home for him. I wanted to adopt him but time was not on my side as I am only able to only do so when my house comes in 2014.
I’ve known Yuniko since 2009 and for those who have been seeing Yuniko in my other social presences, one might think that he was my cat but he is actually owned by my business partner. Yuniko and I shared a very special bond and he amuses me with no end. He is a cat but he has the grace of a fat dog and the greediness of a pig.
I’ll miss his morning greetings; his meowing and purrs as I come into the office. I’ll miss his manja-ness; his way of getting attention by parking himself in between my monitor and my keyboard. I’ll miss his dog-like ways; his licking and actually coming to me when I call his name.
I’ll miss him so much.
I didn’t expect him to be adopted so soon so I unknowingly spent my last day with him yesterday. I gave him a good comb and said to him, “Yuniko, somebody is gonna come visit you tomorrow. You better be good.” It was a good day spent with him but I wish I spent it knowing that he’ll be gone today.
Goodbye my dear Yuniko. I hope your new family treats you well. May you always have food on your plate but for goodness sake, lose some weight.
Goodbye my dear friend.
