Words don't seem enough to describe how I feel...how I felt...how to define what a wonderful feline I had...
Ryley...my cat...my friend...my devoted partner...my familiar...my everything...has passed on. He was 17 years old but cancer finally beat him today February 21, 2017.
No other cat could be as devoted as mine was. Every time I was upset he'd be there for me to comfort me and purr me away to bliss. He slept with me every night as well to chase the nightmares away and even held my hand with his paw if I couldn't sleep. Sure he'd yell and be demanding like any good cat will, but I loved him regardless. He followed me everywhere like a dog. He never left my side and I never left his. We were inseparable until now...I don't feel complete without him...I feel like half of me went with him.
But enough of how I feel. Let me explain how we met and why losing him is so hard on me.
I adopted Ryley (who was known as Vincent) when he was 5 years old. I was 12 at the time and in 6th grade, full of girl hormones, which left me confused and befuddled with emotions. My dad and I went to Petsmart as we always did to get cat food, dog food etc...and we always checked the cats there...well that's when we saw Ryley. My dad and I made a deal that if we was still there after a while we'd take him home. Afterall we thought 5 year old cats were harder to adopt than kittens and younger cats...well...5 weeks later he's still there...so we go in to meet him and the other cats...and...my god...he was the only one with personality. I was sold the instant I saw him try to escape the room. That showed me intelligence a trait I strive for in animals that surround me. We took him home...and he wanted nothing to do with me for 2 weeks. I was ignored, hissed at, and more...but then I figured it was because I hadn't given him a proper name. The store had named him Vincent or Vinny for short...but that sounded too much of a mobster name for him...so it took me 2 weeks to think of a name. I thought of Flame, Volcano, Wiley...and then I thought...Ryley and he loved it. He started meowing and following me and soon after protecting my room each night by staying on my bed and progressing up to next to my head. Through everything I've been through since that fated day he was there. Always...and now when I'm just starting life on my own...he's gone...like he was never there at all... But he was...photos prove it...and how I feel proves how much we meant to each other. Especially these past few days... I cried every single day not knowing when he'd go...not knowing how to let go... He was trying to leave at first but then he got a fight in him that showed me just how much he loved me. He didn't want to leave...he wanted to stay with me...and it killed both of us inside when we both knew he couldn't anymore...So because he would not leave on his own...he was peacefully euthanized today...and now lingers in my memories.
So to try and make my loss and despair productive I was hit with an idea before he left my side...and that was the Ryley Project.
I really want to frame a few photos with pictures drawn by other people of Ryley to hang in his bedroom at my house. Though he wasn't at this place for long he was with me for 13 years. It would be a dedication piece to show how much he meant to me and other people that knew him through me or in person. He really was the best cat and I feel like I can at least do this to repay him for his years of devotion and love to me. No animal or person will ever mean what he meant to me. also suggested making a video out of any art and photos I had of him. If you do not want your art used in the video please let me know. I will be printing the pieces you make and framing them if that is alright...I'm not stealing it or taking credit for it. I can draw. I just want other styles of him to show how much he meant to everyone and to see him in other people's styles one final time.
Here are some photos and videos of my beloved lion Ryley:
Here's some old art of my muffin:
Here's a song I always used to sing to Ryley since he was orange like Oliver:
Here's a song I sing since he was my little soldier boy:
His birthday was in March too so Ryley was almost 17. Rest in peace my sweet prince. You will never be forgotten...
If you have any questions or want to join the Ryley project please comment below or note me. Any art I get is greatly appreciated and is going to a great cause. I would also do art trades for the art if you want as well. It might come slow though as I am a busy teacher lol
