In a story that every pet owner could relate to.
A Reddit user shared a touching photo of his cat’s final car ride before being euthanized. In the shot, the 15-year-old kitty named Andrew can be seen seemingly holding his owners’ hands with his little paw.
Since then, the post has gone viral with hundreds of people sharing sweet stories about their own beloved pets.
“He was a great guy,” Andrew Bernhard, his owner, told The Huffington Post. “Always happy to see everybody, always won fights with the dog, and just wanted you around all the time. He was by my side for years, through high school, undergrad, podiatric medical school, and residency. He just finally got too weak to keep up. ”
As for whether their family will get another cat, Bernhard doesn’t know quite yet.
“I’m not sure I’ll get another one,” he said. “My wife and I have dogs and will never be without them, without a doubt, but I’m not really a cat guy. I was just an ‘Andrew the cat’ guy. It’ll be a while if we get another, but nobody will replace him.
Take a second and remember all the great times you had with past pets that have passed on. If you remember your loving friend from time to time then they always be with you, forever.
