Dear Furs and Folks, Mommy and Daddy, and our Mommy's friend Deb who's dad joined us at Rainbow yesterday:
Many people wonder why there are so many passings this time of year. As I sit here, purring, having had a wonderful breakfast, and a romp around with some friends, and my son Tiger, who's here with me, I can only say this:
I'm so sorry that there have been so many passings. As I sit up on my hind legs and greet Angel Timmy, as I wander down a soft grassy path to laze in the morning sun, I greet Queen T and then say hello to the folks who have come wandering up to spend time with us all...and I see doggies, too, who don't chase us, and well, so many others.
And Calvin, that wonderful Orangie cat leaps up into the crook of an apple tree and gazes out into Forever. And then he says:
Oh Bella-what can we say or send to our folks to let them know we are all ok? That sadness, that is, is but a chance for a new little life to spring anew, for a being who's ready to return, and in that circle of wonder, begin again...another lesson, another promise, another gift from the beyond.
The sadness-it passes. We leave a legacy of kindess, we leave memories, but we live. If we could only reach out a paw and tap their shoulders...but we leave a legacy, my friend.
There is sometmes no sense to the chaos, Bella that happens-the pain folks experience. But there is always, always kindness that balances, for we come and go to learn lessons and have fun in doing it...some may be painful, and some may pain our folks, and other folks.
But the true meaning of 'Angel' Bella?
An Angel is so alive-we reach out to meow in our people's ears, we fly with grace to land before a grieving family, to escort a small child to family just the other side of this 'veil' that is no veil, that one can brush back with a mere flick of a whisker, or wistful sigh. And I watch the little children grab hands, and swing up into arms and be greeted by those who been waiting, who may grieve for those still beyond, but who will tell them 'welcome, and what have you learned? And you'll soon return to gaze again up with wonder and love...for you, and I, and all of us...are love.'
Calvin leaps down, his lovely coat shinging.
We walk, a group of us, to a place where people and all creatures are decorating Evergreens, and a feast of wonderful food is being laid out, and children w ho are yet children race around with dogs bounding and cats weaving between their feet...and there is a feeling of warmth, and joy.
And I connect to my Mom. Who whispers to me in her heart 'I love you, Beasel Weast. Thank you for the Gift of You. Thank you for being My Guide, my Strength and my Love. Thank you. You were the Start of it All, Bella. You started Rescue.
And I whisper to my Mom "I love you-and we'll be together forever-I fly just slightly above, and if a cat could smile and laugh, I would. For all, my dear purrson, is as it should be.'
And Calvin and Boxie and Tigger, and Simba and Skye, Ethan, any so many others have come to join us, and as we launch ourselves up, up, up into the clouds, a rainbow appears and begins to send down tendrils of bright dancing light, and stretches way out over the Earth...and past....
And we purr and sing in cat as only we can....
May your days be Merry and Bright.......
love and light from Rainbow and beyond....
Bella and Guides

Hijacking my Bella's diary-from her mom:
I would love to wish all my wonderful Catster 'family' a wonderful and joyous holiday season. for all of you who have lost someone, please know you are in our hearts. For all who have welcomed a new family member, be they folk or fur, we whisper to you 'be merry'
Yesterday as my husband and I came from getting cat food, a lovely rainbow stretched across the sky. I thought 'the Bridge is opening to welcome others, and to send others here' and I smiled.
There is sadness, and happiness, a bittersweet season that peels back to reveal the most wonderous of miracles....
For it truly is a season of light from the darkness
and light, as we know, always triumphs.
and this light, and these miracles, I wish to you my dear dear family,
love and light,
Deb, Jim, and the Ridgewood kitties
*flutters over to Bella and gives her a big high five* Merry Christmas, Bella. It has been sad having so many pals journey to the bridge lately, but we're gonna make sure the newest angels are taken care of, and help them learn how to fly and sprinkle angel dust, and do all the other good stuff we do up here!
This is really sweet, it made my typist tear up.
