Nina Dobrev's Cat Dies

Nina Dobrev Mourns the Death of Her 18-Year-Old Cat: "My Heart Hurts"

A post shared by Nina Dobrev (@nina) on

Nina Dobrev is mourning the death of her cat, Lynx. The former Vampire Diaries actress shared the sad news in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday. Along with an emotional note, Nina included a series of photos of her and her furry feline. Her message reads as follows:

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, 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 final chapter and 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

Just last week, Nina paid tribute to her cat with an Instagram post in honor of National Puppy Day. "You hear people say 'dogs are a man's best friend.' She might not be one, but she's my best friend so today on #NationalPuppyDay I celebrate my main squeeze," she wrote.
