Nina Dobrev takes to Instagram for a special #InternationalCatDay tribute to her late cat, Lynx.
Dobrev lost her beloved feline friend in March after a long 18 years together.
“A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about my sleeping angel,” she wrote. “Especially on #InternationalCatDay. Rest in peace beautiful girl. Missing your sandpaper kisses terribly, my Lynx.”
Back in March, the “Vampire Diaries” alum shared a touching Instagram post remembering their time together.
“To my sweet sweet angel, as I look back on the last 18-years together, I smile through my tears,” the 28-year-old wrote. “You brought me so much joy, love, unlimited cuddles and so many sandpaper kisses. I still remember the first day I brought you home, the size of a tea cup purring as I held you in my hands.”
To my sweet sweet angel, As I look back on the last 18 years together, I smile through my tears. You brought me so much joy, love, unlimited cuddles and so many sandpaper kisses. I still remember the first day I brought you home, the size of a tea cup purring as I held you in my hands. You were so fragile and furry, as soft as the worlds tiniest cashmere blanket. I knew in that moment you were my soulmate. From there our long journey began and we were inseparable. We grew up together in Toronto, then you followed me to Atlanta, and from there we road tripped across the United States through New Orleans, Austin City, Amarillo Texas, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, we even saw the Grand Canyon for our first time together. Our last chapter and final destination was here in Los Angeles. I hope I was able to give you a beautiful happy life filled with love, because that's what you gave me. Saying goodbye to you on Saturday was the most difficult thing I have had to do in my life. It was bittersweet, but I'm so happy I got to hold you in my arms one last time. My heart hurts, I miss you more than I words can explain but I can still feel your presence, energy and light. I know you're still with me and will always be a part of me, no matter where I go. In sickness and in health until death do us part. My longest relationship, my rock, my best friend. I love you. ❤😿💔 #RIP 9 lives. 9 names. Bambi Jami Jamilia Lynx Jami Lynx Jinx Jimmy jam Poop Jammie
Although Dobrev mourned the loss of sweet Lynx, she went on to adopt a puppy named Maverick in April, who has since been on many adventures with the star.
