Given the joy and peace that cats give us every day, even on the worst days, most of us would agree that the best way to go would be with our cats by our sides.

This heart-wrenching photo was posted on Imgur with the caption: “Her dying wish was to see her best friend, Oliver the cat, one last time to say goodbye.”Many people commented on this picture including Imgur user Zellacat:

“When you are at the adoption agencies, remember that older cats may have been left because their owner died & will be very loving companions.”
