Voorhees first met Tiffany II in 1988, rescuing her from a pet store that was hours from going out of business. Little did she know that her unplanned new pet would become such a beloved figure in her life over the nearly three decades that followed.
"I paid $10 for her and got 27 years of love. My best investment yet," she said. "'I've always felt that Tiffany is there for me."
While Tiffany II's passing no doubt leaves behind an indelible hole in her human's life, what Voorhees learned from her many years spent with the cat is something every pet owner can take to heart:
"I think sometimes we humans are so busy looking at other things that we forget to look down to see the most loving support system in the whole wide world sitting right there at your feet."
