Mom was so surprised and happy to see I was a DDP and so was I! I had 2 Beautiful pictures made for me from Tundra & Friday that mom put on my page and a Beautiful Star from Buddie and lovely Tulips from Casey & family, Molly helped with Angel dust. I hope I didn`t miss anyone:) I know it all made mom smile.
Love,
Duchess

It`s hard to believe it has been 4 yrs since I left my earth family, it still seems like yesterday. I watch over mom as she gets mine & Salem`s memory garden set up with flowers for spring & pretty lights, She takes such good care of it. I fly down and sprinkle some Angel dust on her & the garden so she knows I`m here, I know she misses all of us but we will be waiting here for her.

 

My first Bridge Anniversary

It was 1 year ago today that I left my home on earth, it seems like only yesterday that I was sitting on the window looking out at the spring flowers blooming. I was getting frail and don`t think my bones were strong anymore because when I jumped off the ledge m leg shattered. Mom and dad took me to the vet but the injury was too severe...I remember waking up feeling wonderful and everything was so warm, sunny and pretty and I could run and play without pain with all the other kits and pups. I had a wonderful home for almost 15 yrs and miss my family but I know I will see them all again. My fursister Salem joined me in August, she was too young to leave and I know our mommy has had a very hard time since she left..I hope she knows that me and Salem are doing well and Salem is healthy now and can play and hear things again..

 

It`s been almost a year..

April 21 it will be a ear since you left for the Bridge & we still miss you & always will..

Thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have is memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, in which I'll never part. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart

 

A poem for you..

We are always thinking of you and miss you...

CAT BED IN THE SKY

I thought that you might like to know I got here safe and sound
Though you must feel rather strange not having me around;
Of course, I am not really gone, I've just moved out of sight,
And I don't need that old body, things had stopped working right

Sometimes I'm sorely tempted, to pop back down and see,
Just how you are managing, without any help from me,
But I'm sure that you will understand I can't come back to stay,
Though I have it on good authority that we'll meet again some day.

Oh yes - I've got a comfy bed, just like mine down there at home,
So things here are quite adequate, I cannot gripe or groan;
But while I'm up here waiting, in my cat bed in the sky,
I'll regularly look in on you, and keep a watchful eye.

Merry Christmas Duchess. We miss you and think of you often. We miss your big baseball mitts and seeing you sleeping on the pellet stove. We have so many good memories of you and the kids want to wish you a Merry X Mas too. I hope you are having fun with Salem and the rest of the family at the Bridge.

We love you,
Mom & Dad

It`s beautiful up here and the decorations are wonderful. I`ve met so many furfriends and family and we romp and play in the sun, the grass in the meadows is so soft and nice to curl up in. I miss my earth family but I hope they know I`m happy and healthy once again and will be here waiting for them.

Merry Christmas to all the Rainbow Bridge Kitties & pups and their Earth families

I flew down with Salem to visit mom and I got to see my dog buddy Sterling, we used to pal around outside all the time so I am teaching the little Torti Jewel to follow Sterling like I did and she`s doing a good job of being a buddy to him, she even chases his Frisbee! She`s not allowed outside so can`t explore the farm with him but maybe mom will harness train her like she did Salem.

We saw where mom is making a memory garden for me and Salem and will be getting 2 personalized cat angels with our names on them. I think it will be a lovely garden in the spring

Salem and I went to our first Rainbow Bridge Pawty and it was wonderful Manya and Rascal hosted it and they put on a fantastic event, lots of great food and fun things to do. We are starting to make new friends and learning our way around and have found some of our family members who havve come here long before us. We all miss mom and dad but hope they know we are all happy and healthy and will be here waiting for them.

 

Good bye to a wonderful cat

On April 21, 2009 I had to make the difficult decision to let Duchess cross the bridge. She had a long and healthy life but in the past 2 yrs she was showing signs of arthritis and slowing down. She didn`t want to be brushed or picked up any longer and when you did pick her up you could feel how frail she was. On the evening of April 20th she went to jump down off her window sill (only 24`` high) and landed wrong on her right front. We took her to the vet and after x-rays in the morning it was found she had a spral fracture of the femur and 2 chips. After talking about the options surgeries and months of restricted movement as well as her age we made the decision to let her go, it wouldn`t have been fair to put her through all that when the odds of a full recovery were low,

We miss those big baseball mitts of hers and her tortitude.
