Our Ancient Street Cat Passed Away

  • Publicado el 1 abr 2022
  • 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!

    That old man found two crazy and confused kids and went "These are mine now" then refused to leave until he knew you two would be okay. Crusty was awesome and he will be missed greatly.

      Had the same feeling when the cat I'd had my whole life (as in my parents got her as a wedding present before I was born) died. When she breathed out I held my breath for a really long time not knowing what it would be like to breathe in a world she wasn't there.

      I really feel that. My older cat (I have two), who we adopted when she was 3 months old, is very smart.
      I came home one day feeling upset and just had to cry and she rubbed against my legs at first and then settled on my lap. I felt better almost instantly. She’s always up to something mischievous and I often complain about her antics but I really love her and don’t know what I’d do without her 😢

    My 12 yr old daughter watches your channel and came to me tonight crying because “a ESclipsr she watches cat died” she wanted me to watch this video, so I did and by the end I was crying too. I am so grateful for people like you two who have love in your hearts for an animal that a lot of people wouldn’t have wanted, simply because he was old, unhealthy (at first) and “Crusty”. I subscribed to your channel tonight just because of your love, compassion, and gratitude for Crusty. What a wonderful gift of love you both gave to him that he returned in full to both of you. I fully believe you are both fundamentally good people and I am glad my daughter watches you guys.

    "I know he's just a cat..."
    No, he wasn't "just a cat," he was Crustuselah the Ancient, and part of your little family. It
    makes me sad that people feel the need to try to explain why they feel emotional when they lose a pet. The people that have never bonded with an animal will never understand it, but those of us who have loved and been loved in return by another creature will always understand wholeheartedly the feeling.
    RIP Crusty. Thanks for letting all of us be a part of your life.

    I just re-watched this and I can't stop crying. I hate the fact that Safiya felt like she had to say "it's just a cat" but honestly, if you've had a pet in your life, you know they are not "just an animal". They are family. Losing a pet will forever be one of the toughest losses a person can go through.

My daughter turned me on to Saf about 3 years ago and I'm SO glad she did. It's an honor to feel like a part of THESE kinds of people. Thank you to Safiya's fan-base, welcoming from the beginning, quick to be kind rather than confrontational. You people are amazing.

    When she said the vet told us to put him down I started crying because it made me think about my two cats and how I know one is 12 weeks but the other one is 8 years. You never know how much time you have left or your animal has left. It’s hard to imagine life without my animals. So everyone cherish the time you have with someone, something, or an animal. And always please stay safe

    If I may - Crusty is not “just a cat.” He’s your cat and you loved him and he matters. You don’t owe any of us an explanation or justification for how much you love & miss him. He mattered to you & he helped you through some tough, uncertain years. That’s all we, as your supporters, need to hear. Take as much time as you need. Grief never hurts less, but, eventually, it hurts less often. ❤❤❤

    To #teamtafiya: Crusty knew that you guys were struggling a bit, so he made a promise to himself that he was going to hang around long enough for you to come up for air. I know he's purring with delight at watching you two succeed and grow each and every day. I haven't been watching your vids for very long, but I know he's excited to see your next step.

    What a sweet remembrance video. I did not know Crusty's origin story, or that you guys only had him for 6 or so years. You gave him what was probably the best years of his life. You can cherish that, knowing that he chose you to spend that time with. Both of my cats were strays, and chose me, and I think that makes me appreciate them even more. Having also lost numerous pets over the years, I can understand how hard it is to say goodbye. I loved seeing all the footage with Crusty, he lives on in the digital world.

      Another time I sat with a friend whose 20 year old died that wept. They mean a lot.

      All pets are. They are family. They love us or tolerate us.. are our companions.. and they deserve to be mourned and loved and adored and cherished. Because they are our family. Feline, canine, or otherwise.

      Pets are never "just a x". They're our family, our friends, our companions. They are a constant safe space and provide us joy, contentment, and love.
      When my dog passed away, it ruined me for a few weeks. It was a natural, expected death and he went out in his usual considerate way (this was the kind of dog who would only poop near trashcans on walks; we never trained him to do this), and it was objectively an "easy" death. But my dog had been my rock and my home for so long, it was like losing a piece of myself. He was like my unofficial emotional support animal, who had gotten me through so much. My entire life upended when I lost him. He wasn't just a dog; he was my family.

    My wife and I lost our cat of only 6 years yesterday. His name was Astro, he came to us when we had started dating as well, and he was the sweetest cuddle bug that only wanted to spend as much time as possible with his two moms. It hurts so much to come home and not see him there, but to constantly be reminded of where he used to be.
    Watching this video helps us out a lot, focusing on the good memories and processing and accepting our loss. We've always loved your content and Astro would even sit on the couch with us while your videos were playing. I hope you know how much your content means to us.

Crusty wasn’t just a cat. He was so special to you, to Tyler, and to us. Thank you for sharing him with your channel.

I’m glad you guys made his final years so good and filled with love

    I know we all loved Crusty here and he will forever be in our hearts. But a nice thing to think about is if he was 21 years old, in cat years he was about 100 years old, so go Crusty! 💗

    He wasn’t “just” anything. Crusty was family, still is. You can still do this, both of you can. It just might take you time, and you take the time you need. You’re human. I’m so sorry about Crusty, but he’s the best boy always and forever. We all love you so much.

    Saf keeps saying that Crusty was "just a cat", but I didn't even know him and I'm crying. Cats are family too. They need love and care, and they give it back in their own way. You gave him an amazing life from the moment you met him, and he gave back to you however he could. I hope you get to meet again someday. Rest in peace lil dude ❤

      I think she is saying that cause people with try to attack her with the argument of saying he was just an animal, we as humans forget we are just animals as well and that out existence is as worthy as their (cats, dogs, animals) existence.

    • Sloan Julia

      exactly. I think the hardest thing for me to comprehend with the pet/human relationship is that our timelines are different, that’s about it. They love as hard as we do, they get as sad as we do, they’re a part of our families as much as any person (my mom considered our dog Mike a sibling 😂, she even called him Michael when he needed to be scolded and he definitely learned that when his “full name” was being used, he was in trouble). They’re so much more than an animal and I don’t think anyone who says otherwise has even been as attached to a pet the way I have been or the way Saf and Tyler are to Crusty

    I'm a cat rescuer and just wanted to say thanks for helping me grieve the cats I've lost. In this line of work there are always more lives to save, so there isn't much time to dedicate to missing the ones we couldn't save. Crusty was an absolute darling, and I'm so happy he had such a wonderful life with you, it's all I wish for the cats we rescue.

    So sorry for the loss of Crusty. It is clear how much you both loved him and that he was a part of your dynamic trio. You guys are doing a great job. Please don’t lose confidence in what you are doing. Hopefully someday soon, you will welcome another cat back into your lives. Until then, sending good wishes to you and condolences for Crusty.

    I lost my cat around the same time as you both and it was very sudden, she had an underlying heart condition that killer her in a matter of hours unfortunately and it was very fast and traumatic, so I’m glad you got a slow peaceful end to a lovely kitty. Rip Crusty and Lucy

    Loosing a cat or any sort of pet is equal to loosing a family member. People may disagree with that but it’s true. People can break down mentally when an animal that they love dies. I am so sorry about Crusty and know your pain, because I’ve had a cat that I love taken away from me and though he’s still alive it’s so unbelievably horrible. I also think it’s very brave for you to tell his story to millions of people on the internet since I know that must of hurt. Thank you for your amazing channel and, where ever you are little Rusty rest easy. ❤

    Thanks for sharing Crusty with us all. They are never just a pet but a part of the family and he was so lucky to have found you both, as with your love he managed to live such a great life for the time you had together. 21yrs, give or take a few is a damn good age for a cat.
    I lost my cat Boots in 2017 at the ripe old age of 22, and I didn’t know how I was suppose to go on without him, as he’d been my best friend since I was 10. I still cry for him today but I know that he’ll forever be protecting me as he watches me from Kitty Heaven and I know Crusty is doing the same for you and Ty.

It looks like you gave crusty a wonderful life and that he was a much loved member of your family. Thanks for also being real about mental health challenges over the last couple of years. You always look like you have everything together in your videos, it’s a good reminder that we all struggle and need each other. I know your videos bring joy to a lot of people but it’s always okay to put your own mental health first.

    I had my dog for 11 years and he passed away from lung cancer today. I revisited this video looking for some peace. Thank you so much for showing me that it's possible to move on without forgetting your old friend. I will miss mine forever. I also drove my friend across the country from Boston to Miami when I moved. He was terrified of driving and stood the entire 1000 miles just to watch the road with me. I feel like I lost my best friend.
