This sums up my personal feelings to the letter.
To My Cat: I Promise
I will never move and not take you with me.
I will never put you in a shelter and leave.
I will never let you starve.
I will never let you hurt.
I will never desert you when you get old.
Nor will I leave you when you go blind.
When that time comes, I will be there to hold you.
Because I love you and you are FAMILY.
