A view from the Bridge

Hi Everyone,

I am so happy that there is a Newcat living safe with Mommy and Daddy. I know that as I sit here and purr, that Newcat is snoozing on a pillow, safe and even if a little afraid, going to florish with love.
Awhile back, something happened that hurt Mommy-who is really unhurtable. She's worked in rescue a very long time, worked for a no kill shelter for 15 years before that, as she began to get into rescue, because she felt that there is no such thing as 'unadoptable'.
Mommy and Daddy were talking about me the other night. Daddy and Mommy were discussing when I'd come back. Mommy grew thoughtful. 'She may. But you know, I have a feeling we had our full cycle together. Bella and me...and then you, too. She had a life that was what she wanted, I think. She did what she set out to do'.
Mommy and Daddy were quiet. And then Mommy smiled. "I thought it would hurt more when we came home. I miss her. But there is a feeling of fullness....she had a wonderous life, and a loving and gentle passing. She was ready-her body was no longer her vechile, and so she left it, leaping up and over.
I miss Bella. But it's so clear that her journey lay elsewhere-and that was ok."

I purred softly to Mommy and Daddy. And I watched as a new fur, rescued from death before his time, with wonderous life and adventures head of him, curles up into a relaxed and relieved sleep in a quiet room, with only Natalie's snores...and the thunder of the elevated line a few feet away-to disturb him.

Do we, spirits of so many colors, not take on our earthly forms, or purr in comfort and love for our people? Of course we do. We trot across keyboards, we, when needed, marshall rescources to draw to us a million points of light and materialize for a few moments into the dimension we hurtled out of, to crash into it again, dive through that moist air and stretch out to scoop another feline to safety....
We turn and purr at our person's shoulder, willing them with who and what we are to Know.
We form a bond that is beyond the physical, and we, as Felines, with our Knowing, move back and forth between worlds, messnegers, Guides. We Are.
We heal. We protect, we cast out our psyche across the distance to others with perked ears and purrs, and whisper 'trust miracles do occur'. We do this, for as Felines, we Are.
And if you doubt, lift that kitten to your heart, or the Elderwise cat that has regarded you when sleeping, with a lovely 'Rrrt?' or the cat, lolling on the cat tree, staring into the Beyond.
We are here.
And when the time is right....the urge to strong, the need to great...
We don once again fur that is brushed and burnished by sun and mooon...
We leap high...
And arrive, as we left, with mischief and love, and always, always light.

for we are the Mystery of Cat

Love, always,

You have lovely words of wisdom & tranquility our sweet Bella. You surely seem at peace & your parents too. Our momma has felt that way with her dog that passed several years ago. To live a happy life, full of love & a soft bed with good food & a pat on the head. That is a good life. We see you in the stars Bella. purrs, The kitty Quartet

Oh Bella that is so beautiful. Mum is so sorry we never realised you went to the bridge and is really ashamed that she never got in touch before.

I hope you can forgive me for not getting in touch sooner. I was so grateful for the support you gave me when Alfie went to the bridge.

It sounds like you gave Bella a wonderful life.

Beautiful words my sweet angel friend. I think there are some of us who have come full cycle (as you say) and now our time is to be furever spent here at the bridge awaiting that day we will be reunited with our family. Mom thought boo was me coming home and no we were not the same cats at all and then she was sure Ivey was me coming home but that was not to be and now she is here. The kitties there love mom and she and dad love them dearly and it is good to see them safe for surely they would all have died if not for the love of a human which happened to be my mom.
Mom missees me so much but it hurt more to see me sick when I left she was more sad for her loss but she was glad I was no longer hanging on for her sake for she is sure i did that for a while there at the end.
love skids kitty angel and family

...the mystery cat...we just are, that's all. Sweet Bella, you had a furry long fullfilling life and you are so wise oh so beyond your words. Your life was full and complete. Some of us, go way to soon and are yet..unfinished. As I too young, and our angel cousin Timmy. We had to help our mom's find new kits to bring home, to have a furefur home, to be loved and cherished, to fullfill that burning emptyness. It's an extention of life, mom says. It continues, it grows. The love never ends. Love 'n Light to your furmilies, my dear angel furiend!~

We agree wonderful words of wisdom....Mom now knows too that my life was full and I had more love than I could have imagined. Me and Mom have that bond I am always with her even if she doesn't always feel me.

Mom also realizes that her life is so much longer than us kitties and she knows her heart is big enough of love other kitties in need like Tu Two and Kody. I watch over them all, I make sure Xena is doing well, Zekes breathing is good and I make sure Mom knows when it isn't.

Mom knows our lives on earth are only part of what we do and we will always be connected through out time.

Kitties are precious gifts!

Meowmi and I read your beautiful diary, and then water started coming out of Meowmi's eyes. . . . so many wonderfur cats have passed through her life; each is unique and beautiful. . .
