Our Ancient Street Cat Passed Away

Our Ancient Street Cat Passed Away

Hello friends! Unfortunately, we come bearing some sad news – our ancient ex-street-cat Crusty passed away a little while ago at the ripe old age of 21. So we decided to make a little memorial video for him here, as a celebration of his long, dusty life and how much he impacted ours. We met him back in 2015 on the streets, he was there when we started our channel – he judged my ugly clothing and lounged in a giant beanbag – and when we moved across the country, he came too. Tyler & I loved him like crazy, and we’re gonna miss him like crazy – and we know that a lot of you guys will too.

A huge thanks to Shelby & Sandy for the really sick art piece – you can check them out here!

      We lost our dog Sophie in November to a sudden stroke and I still find myself tearing up sometimes. We still tell stories about our other dogs who have passed on and Sophie is now among them. You never stop missing them but it becomes easier to bask in the joy of their lives with you instead of the deep grief you feel in the beginning. You and Tyler have helped me a lot just by being yourselves on this channel, I hope you both feel better soon. My deepest condolences 💐

      thank you for this. i feel like i got to know him too! so i’m grateful you did all this work that must have been so lovely and so painful to do, just to pay tribute to him and share him with the world. i lost two cats in the last few years. it is still strange to have an empty house. i still expect to hear meowing outside the bathroom door when i get out of the shower, or see them come down the hall when i’m washing dishes. i still think of the left side of the couch as “george’s spot”. the thing i remind myself, the thing that got me through the grief, is what a privilege it is to be their person — to be the person who knows and loves them the most, the person they need the most. it’s a privilege to love someone for their whole life right up until the end and forever. it’s a privilege to be strong for them when they need you the most. it’s a privilege to love them and hold them and be with them for the last moments of their life. it means that your bond with him is stronger than anyone else’s. and that it is your strength that comforts them and makes them safe and honours and gives them dignity when they go. as much as it hurts to lose him, remember what a privilege it is to know someone and love them that much.
      i’ll never know if you see this or if it helps you but i hope it does because i understand. best wishes.

      I’m so sorry for your loss Safiya and Tyler – Crusty was such a special boy and you can easily see that you both meant the world to him. My 23 year old family cat that we’ve had since she was a kitten recently passed too and there are still moments when it just hits me that she’s not around anymore and it is hard and I’m sure making this memorial video wasn’t easy but thank you for sharing it ❤️❤️❤️

    Literally yelled “NOOOOO CRUSTY!”
    What a good lil kitty – he has lots of friends waiting for him over the rainbow bridge.

    A pet is never “just a pet.” They’re a part of your family, they’re a part of your heart. Crusty will always be with you, and he’ll always be in the hearts of your viewers who loved him.❤️

  6. Meghan Woodruff says:

    Sobbing, he was a part of all of us. Even though we never met him, we loved him too, he will never be just a cat, may be rest in peace and I hope you and Tyler are doing as okay as you can in your grief.

    This is literally the definition of ‘you don’t choose cats, they choose you’ 🥺

    I’ve got tears in my eyes watching this. I lost my cat in 2020 and I miss him everyday – I’m so glad you give Crusty as much love as he gave you 🤍

    Remember what Pooh said: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
    Crusty was part of the team and will be missed. Much love to both of you from Costa Rica 💚

    There’s no such thing as “just a cat”, they’re just as much a part of your family as a dog can be. You gave him the best life and I know he loved you guys as much as you loved him! I lost my own little buddy in 2018 who’d been a part of my life for 20 years and I still cry whenever I think about him. Hugs to you and Tyler!
