When I left for the one year trip, I always knew that I’ll be leaving the things I cared about for one year. However I never expect the thing I cared about to leave for good. My precious cat Zoe that I loved so much died when we were on our one year trip at Egypt, Luxor.
The first time we heard the bad news was in Cairo. The person taking care of Zoe told us the Zoe got gastrointestinalidis so she wasn’t eating. When I heard that I felt so worried that I couldn’t think of anything else but her. I was so afraid that I would lose her that day. As the days went by Zoe’s condition was getting worst by the day. 3 weeks later Zoe passed away.
When I heard this news I was devastated. I didn’t even knew what I should do next. All I wanted to do was be by my beloved cat Zoe. After 2-3 hours of crying constantly, I calmed down slightly and joined my family in sharing the good times we had with Zoe. For instance, she would some times wake up up by pawing on our faces; even though it was annoying then, I would certainly miss it. We also talked about how much we would miss Zoe acting like a dog and greeting us every time we walk through the door. Most of all, we talked about how much we would miss Zoe sleeping on our beds, and purring so loud that everybody could hear her. I loved my beautiful cat that my heart hurts so much just to think of her.
On that day I was so depressed that I didn’t want to do anything. Nevertheless, my sister convinced me that when someone dies you don’t need to be mourning, instead you should be happy since she is now in heaven with God, and she doesn’t need to deal with anymore pain now. Thus, I dressed my best for Zoe and continued our day to tour the Valley of The Kings. At a secluded area, we gathered five rocks and piled them on top of each other. These five stone was the memorial stone for Zoe our baby.
Even though i was heavyhearted, I still managed to continue my day. I will forever remember my cat Zoe, and I will constantly miss her. Nevertheless, I know that my dear baby Zoe is enjoying her time with God in heaven.
