On July 19th, 1997 my kitty Bailey delivered 4 lil' kittens. Basil became my best friend for the next 12 years. Last weekend he seemed to be getting much too skinny too quickly, so we took him to the vet on Monday. We learned that poor lil' Basil has cancer and may not even live for another two weeks. I spent all Monday and Tuesday night with him. Last night while everyone slept, he crawled behind the couch and went to sleep. He didn't wake up. This all happened way too fast and it's really breaking my heart. I have never had such a loving, sweet and nurturing pet. He took care of me as much as I did for him. He gave the best hugs that lasted for as long as you could hold him. I will miss you and your million meows. You brightened everyone's life by being here. i love you.
I spent tonight with my grandma, going through all my old photos of him. Here's a few I thought I would share...

This was my last cuddle with him, last night. 2010
