We think that you need to have an extra-large box of tissues close at hand because this story will make you cry. At only four years old, Abby Merryn already understood the sad fact when it came to saying goodbye to her best friend, Bailey the cat. It must be a very special connection between little kids and animals.
When she was born, Abby finds an inseparable friend in the family’s cat – Bailey. The 14-year-old senior cat and the little girl became best buddies and they’ve done everything together. Although the two have shared plenty of tender moments. Abby even loves singing and reading to her tabby cat. Amazingly, Bailey seems to understand every word purrfect.
“He was one in a million who allowed two little girls to give him baths, feed him in high chairs, push him in strollers, dress him up, put fake makeup on him, rock him in cradles, sit at a table while they fed him plastic food, sleep with them at nap time and bedtime, among many other things.”
But as a sad reality of life, animals live much less than humans. So while Abby was growing up, her kitty was getting older and her medical condition was deteriorating by the day. Until she sadly (ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ). But not before sharing one last tender moment with her best friend.
Abby’s last song “You Are My Sunshine” to Bailey before her furry friend crossed the rainbow bridge. Just hours after this moment was filmed, Bailey go to forever.
When their favorite cat and best buddy, Bailey (ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ) right before Christmas, these two cute little girls-the 4-year-old Abby and her younger sister Hannah received endless support in form of cards and gifts from all over the world.
“In a world where you hear a lot of the negative, you’re seeing right here some of the positive. Thank you to all who sent cards, they loved opening them. You made this difficult time a little easier,” Abby’s mother said.
Despite Bailey’s passing, her memory continues to live on in their hearts, and she will never be forgotten.
