Nina Dobrev has taken to Instagram to share a heartbreaking tribute to her "best friend," her 18-year-old cat Lynx.
The Vampire Diaries star revealed in an emotional statement that she had to say farewell to her cat over the weekend, and it made us cry all the ugly tears.
"To my sweet sweet angel," she began. "As I look back on the last 18 years together, I smile through my tears. You brought me so much joy, love, unlimited cuddles and so many sandpaper kisses. I still remember the first day I brought you home, the size of a tea cup purring as I held you in my hands. You were so fragile and furry, as soft as the worlds tiniest cashmere blanket. I knew in that moment you were my soulmate.
"From there our long journey began and we were inseparable. We grew up together in Toronto, then you followed me to Atlanta, from there we road tripped across the United States through New Orleans, Austin City, Amarillo Texas, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, we even saw the Grand Canyon for our first time together. Our final chapter and destination together was here in Los Angeles. I hope I was able to give you a beautiful happy life filled with love, because that's what you gave me."
"Saying goodbye to you on Saturday was the most difficult thing I have had to do in my life. It was bittersweet, but I'm so happy I got to hold you in my arms one last time," she continued. "My heart hurts, I miss you more than I words can explain but I can still feel your presence, energy and light. I know you're still with me and will always be a part of me, no matter where I go."
She concluded, "In sickness and in health until death do us part. My longest relationship, my rock, my best friend. I love you."
We're not crying, you're crying.
We all know the how hard it can be to lose our furry friends, sending all the love to our girl Nina today.
