This was me as a teen and my cat Maggie, who I had to have put to sleep at age 9 in 2011. It was devastating. She was my best friend and for some years, my only friend. We were extremely close. She would meow and cry unless I was holding her in my arms or lap. She was a polydactyl with seven toes for each front paw, and on the back paws she had 5 toes on one and 6 toes on the other. She has a sneezing problem her whole life and suddenly had seizures one day, the day I had to have her put to sleep and cremated. I will always love her and miss her.
