Valerie and Stewie's Story so far
From August 2004 to February 2010 Stewie was my best friend. Some say that dog's are their best friends and Stew was that to me. He wasn't just a cat, he was my dog, my friend and I loved him so much.
I remember when I went to pick up the kitten that I had chosen. That day he hid from me and here came Stew. He waltzed up to me and sat in my lap as if he was ready to go. I figured he picked me and there had to be a reason. So I took him home and soon after I knew we were kindred spirits.
He was stubborn and silly and let me love him. In return he showed me love, the unconditional kind that I had always wanted. He went through so much with me. Break ups, moving and babies and still he would cuddle up to me when I was sick or sad and make me feel as if everything was going to be ok.
Stew made my worst times feel so much less painful. I don't know what I am going to do without him here to kiss my nose and make me laugh. My heart is broken and I feel torn apart, as if a piece of me is missing.
