I am completely gutted. I am 31 years old and picked him out when I was 15. It's like losing part of who I am.
I'm glad I got this picture of the lovebirds, though.

No. It is losing part of who you are... but PART of who you are... not who[/i ] you are. All of the good things and bad things in your life make you who you are, Simon is part of that.
You'll adapt to him being gone from your life, and you have beautiful photos of him to remember him by. But I would encourage you to remember his bad points too. That's what made him [i]him. After my Mordred passed, my friend Katie wrote a poem for me - "I am a Bad Cat" because he was a bad cat. Now his behavior makes me laugh, but it was (and still is) bad behavior. Ruined floors, ruined wood work, a scar on my foot from his claws.
It's their "bad" things that make them who they are. I miss my Mordred, and I have to admit that I am crying for him now... but he was who he was. I should still have him - ruining my furniture, my wood work, my floors and beating up poor Princess Ruby.
You'll be ok, you'll adapt, but you'll hurt when you think of him, and that's ok. Don't let anyone tell you to "just get past it."
It's been strange, and my life is going to change 180º. I hadn't really realized how all-consuming caring for him had become. When my father passed away it was devastating, as well as a huge relief. He had been fighting cancer and he was losing and he was ready. This was similar. Simon had been hanging on and fighting for so long. And now he was done.
I miss him. Feeding them all was weird. River's not barking like usual and she's sleeping in his bed. Everyone's confused. I've cried all day. But this was the best decision for him; and I have the best and worst of him to carry with me forever.
