Really miss having our outdated cat, same temp preferences & hair in the air filter

I know it’s a bit creepy, however the layer of fur on the jammed filtration device is the only remains of our lost cat

I will admit that there are mornings that I randomly still split down & struggle with a single thing for certain. I desperately miss the cat who I lost in the middle of a break-up last year. For years, our awesome cat & I were virtually attached at the hip. All of us did everything together & spent every moment of the day virtually side by side. Even though the other scars I carry have faded, I will admit that I still have emotional responses to our missing best friend. Embarrassingly, these crying jags can happen at almost any moment. The other day I really humiliated myself in front of our long time heating, cooling, & ventilation specialist when I was reminded of our lost best friend. I had noticed for the last few weeks that our air quality seemed to be deteriorating & the indoor air temperature was getting unevenly hot & cold. I knew this was a sign that our central heating & cooling plan wasn’t in optimal shape & I should consider calling out an air quality control specialist for help. I arranged to get a routine diagnostic appointment with our cooling system, air duct to network, & ventilation plan. When my heating & cooling specialist arrived, he got to task replacing the air filter & inspecting the extensive duct task right away. Everything was great until he wanted to speak about his diagnostic results from the routine HVAC appointment. He told me the old air filter had been honestly packed with fine, dark hair & it was straining the central cooling system. That’s when I totally broke down into tears & asked if I could please keep the disgusting, dirty air filter. I know it’s a bit creepy, however the layer of fur on the jammed filtration device is the only remains of our lost cat. I expect I’ll need a modern HVAC tech.
