I have so many mixed emotions at the moment. I am thrilled and tickled to have been chosen as one of today's DDP's! Thank you HQ!
However I am also saddened with so many new friends arriving at the Bridge; saddened for our Earth families who are grieving. We love you and send out all of our softest angel purrs as we share tears gently falling.
I want to thank you all for meowing out that you hate cancer too. My big brofur Poo, who is fighting his cancer like a champ, is doing well. I beliEVE it is the power of LOVE that is helping him stay strong! I hope and I pray that it will be a long time before I greet my sweet Poo at the Bridge.
Softest little angel purrs of love to everyone.
Do you beliEVE?

I hate cancer, but I beliEVE! HQ must hate cancer too, for I am a DDP again, 2 days in a row! Thank you SO much HQ! Thank you all for the outpouring of love, congratulations for me, and support for my brother Poo who has inoperable cancer in his throat. He is still holding steady, he gets lots and lots of loves from our family. I beliEVE in the power of love!
Most of all, thank you for your continued friendship and for reading my diary. I am going to post something that is very important to me. Did you know that my cousin SUGAR BEAR has beaten cancer twice? Her family is helping to raise funds for cancer research in kitties. This is very near and dear to my heart. Please check out Sugar’s website:
If you click on the name, you will be taken to the website! Here you will learn about feline and canine breast cancer and what you can do to detect it in time, educate yourself, and even donate toward research. Or, you can pawmail me or her for details.
On another note, there are many friends out here in Catsterland who are hurting. If you know of someone needing some cheer, please stop by their page with a kind word; I know it will make a difference.
I love you all! Keep smiling, keep purring, keep beliEVEing!
Happy little angel purrs!

Dear Diary Gal, thank you for choosing littlest me as a DDP! I love you!
Dear friends, thank you for reading my diary. I have missed you and it is so good to be back and see all of you, familiar faces and new ones!
Although I love my brother Poo, I am not ready to meet him at the Bridge quite yet, and I hope I won’t have to for a long time. No offense, Poo, I love you dearly and have all of the patience in the world to wait for you, as your Earthly family needs that time together with you. My one wish as I wish upon the brightest star tonight, is to wish for a cure for cancer.
Love to all!

Do you beliEVE?
I beliEVE it is never too late to rekindle what might have been lost. My furmily and I have not been active here in 2-1/2 years, due to job changes, moving, and having very demanding jobs. Well, I’ve decided that is an excuse. We can all find time to connect, if you make that time. So I am making a promise, along with my siblings to stay connected.
Since my brother Poo was diagnosed with cancer a week ago, we reached out and connected with old friends and new friends as well. Friends are always here for one another, no matter what the distance, no matter how much time has elapsed since communicating last. We are so grateful for our friends here, for showing unconditional love and support for all of us… as we always have for all of you, yet silently. Well, that silence is broken! I’ve forgotten how much fun Catster is and connecting with all of my kitty friends.
Thank you for being furever friends here, thank you for loving us, thank you especially for loving Poo as we go through this difficult time, fighting to keep him comfy, happy and healthy for as long as possible.
Do you beliEVE?

My name is Eve and I am so named for having been discovered in a shelter on Christmas Eve. I was living in a shelter of despair yet of hope, when my angel Jody found me, when my angel mommy learned of me and wanted to take me home.
I am EVE, and I am LOVE!
Many of you know of my sad story, one of love, one of hope, one to beliEVE in… if you don’t please read my first poignant diary entry.
I died in the shelter as a disabled, blind kitten, but that does not stop my family from having hope and love, and for beliEVEing. That is why I write this message of love and hope. Don’t ever stop beliEVEing, despite all odds. Mom felt the depths of despair and sadness following my crossing to the Beautiful Bridge, never having held me, but she never stopped beliEVEing. Although it may not seem that there is not much one individual can do to help make shelter conditions around the world better, and to make shelters a happy place to be while we all wait with love and hope for our forever homes, we still try with messages of hope and love to bring many together to help the plight of our overcrowded understaffed shelters.
My Christmas EVE message to my loved ones near and far is to keep the faith in your heart despite the pain and frustration of bad experiences. It will help and save many of us who simply want to be LOVED.
I am EVE, and I am LOVE!
I wish all a very merry Christmas and Christmas EVE as I soar the heavens on gossamer wings, shedding love, light and hope upon Earth. Bless us all!
Love, Angel Eve

Today would have been my 3rd birthday. This is the 3rd birthday that I celebrate, without my family having been able to touch me, to hug me, to love me. I died shortly after being rescued from the shelter from my amazing other mommy, Jody. Bless Jody's heart for doing everything to help me, to help bring me home to my forever home. I never made it. So, I am re-posting my poignant first diary entry from 3 years ago. Mommy Terry still cries every time she re-reads my diary entry, every time she thinks of me and that very sad day when she was told that I became an angel.
Our shelter kitties and doggies are so very important, even though they don't have homes. They feel pain, fear, sadness, hunger.... just like I did. Yet on the bright side, they feel happiness, joy, love and comfort too! So with that, I will continue to spread the word to please support your local shelters and do what you can to put an end to the poor quality of life and suffering of our beloved animals in need of a home, a soft touch, in need of LOVE.
I am Eve.... I am LOVE. Please keep beliEVEing!
Please have some tissues with you as you read.... I love you all. Never forget...
softest little angel purrs from Heaven
My journey to my life of forever love and happiness began on Christmas Eve. That is how I got my name, Eve. I am 7 months old, and I’ve lived in a cage in a shelter my entire life. All that I have known is a small space, being inside, cooped up without love, without the power of the human touch, without toys or warmth in my heart. I sat in my cage, every day for as long as I’ve been here, waiting and hoping for that wonderful day that somebody would see me, fall in love with me, and scoop me up, making me their forever baby girl. Days passed…. Days continued to pass. My hopes started to dim but I still had my spirit and love keeping me going forward.
I AM BLIND.
However, I have spirit. I’d come this far in my cold unloved world and reached the point where I started to give up… I was sad. Prior to being rescued, I would jump up into the post box where I would sleep, up off the ground. I liked high places. I was active and would walk around as much as a blind cat can; but I did stumble a little, as I was blind. Then, that stopped. I had trouble moving around, and the people at the shelter saw that, so they moved into the infirmary area that was more available to the public, and where they could watch me more closely as they knew I had a problem. But, what was my problem?
I COULDN’T WALK.
So I sat in my cage for 2 weeks, unable to use my rear legs. Nobody seemed to notice. Nobody except my guardian angel who came to rescue me. That guardian angel is my Auntie Jody. She saw me, tiny me, looking forlorn and unhappy, and immediately contacted my future mommy who said YES! We’ll take her HOME!
MOM IS OUT OF STATE AND HAS NEVER MET ME.
Mom has always had it in her heart to help a special needs kitty. Hers is the best home in the world! She has 7 healthy happy kitties, who I know will eventually love me, show me around, and “be my eyes”.
I ONLY WEIGHED 3 POUNDS.
Despite my disability, I was spayed. When Auntie Jody drove me home she noticed that I could not use my hind legs. I would not eat. She was VERY concerned at how thin and malnourished I was and rushed me to the vet there, who said "I don't think you're looking at anything good here but I've been wrong".
MOM CRIED UNTIL SHE COULDN’T BREATHE.
Although deeply saddened for me, handicapped, who had no hope and was starting to give up hope, mom and all of her friends would not give up on me, and something magical started to happen. The Power of the Paw touched me, and suddenly I felt LOVE from everywhere! LOVE! What is that? I’ve never experienced it! LOVE! My Auntie Jody is a true saint, an angel on Earth. She snuggled with me, kept me warm, force fed me kitten food and kitten milk through a syringe and stayed with me 24 hours a day. LOVE! I was starting to feel love! If all of these nice people refused to give up on me, they why should I give up? Then…. Something wonderful happened… I POOPED! I PEED! LOVE!
LITTLE EVE! WE BELIEVE IN YOU!
I started progressing so rapidly, that I actually…. walked! I walked on my own! Tiny baby steps, only a few at a time assisted by Angel Auntie Jody, but I WALKED!
I CAN WALK.
Angel Auntie Jody continued feeding me with a syringe, and… I FOUGHT! I pushed against that thing and tried to get it away from me! I have strength!
I BEGAN EATING ON MY OWN.
A few days later, I ate 3-4 bites of kitten food on my own with no syringe! (THE POWER OF THE PAW) I drank from my Drinkwell all by myself (LOVE) I am proving that vet wrong, as I get better, little by little, step by tiny step.
I WAS RUSHED TO THE ER ON 1/3.
I couldn’t breathe. Oh dear God what is wrong, I need help. Angel Auntie Jody rushed me to the emergency vet at 2 a.m., 75 miles from her home. You are a true angel on Earth, Auntie Jody. I spent the night in an oxygen chamber. As I close my eyes and try to sleep, relax… I hear and feel all of the powerful love and words…. Evie, little Evie, we BELIEVE….. we believe. I am so touched that everyone BELIEVES! Drifts off…. I then saw the bright white light…. As I was uplifted to a beautiful place. No pain, no fear. Why, this is wonderful! What is this place?
I WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE ON 1/3.
Despite the love, I wasn’t physically strong enough. Looks down on Earth, and smiles. Smiles, feeling the LOVE that I’ve had in my short life. LOVE! That is what matters; in my last week, Auntie Jody, my future mommy and daddy and all of the wonderful caring people showed me what I never had. LOVE! I have beautiful new wings, I am healthy and whole again; I can SEE! I can walk! I am well and happy again here at the Beautiful Rainbow Bridge! Although mommy never met me, she is honoring me with a page! ME! And Auntie Jody will have my ashes safe, always and always more, so that I can stay with her always, not only in her heart, but forever in her home. I FEEL LOVE
Mommy & daddy speaking…
Little Evie, although our hearts break for you, we rejoice in your short life. Knowing that you knew love, even if but for a tiny bit, toward the end. Mommy says, One never realizes how close they've become to someone without having met them, until they hear heartbreaking news about that special one... and the tears just flow… that is how strongly you’ve touched our hearts and lives little Eve. FLY FREE and watch over those whose hearts you’ve touched… we love you

Mom continues to beliEVE in littlest me. And although we never touched physically, I have touched her heart forever. I want to share this lovely poem with my friends.
Lend Me a Kitten
I will lend to you for a while
a kitten, God said.
For you to love while she lives,
and mourn when she's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe two or three.
But will you, 'till I call her back,
take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you
and should her stay be brief,
you'll always have her memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay,
since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below
I want this kitten to learn.
I've looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true,
And from the folk that crowds life's land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love,
nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take
my kitten home again?
And my heart replied,
"My Lord, Thy Will Be Done."
For all the joys this kitten brings,
the risk of grief I'll run.
I'll shelter her with tenderness,
I'll love her while I may.
And for the happiness that I've known,
forever grateful stay.
But should you call her back
much sooner than I planned,
I'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
and try to understand.
If by my love I've managed
your wishes to achieve,
in memory of her sweet sweet love,
please help me while I grieve.
When my cherished kitten
departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul
for me to love all her life.
This poem was adapted from "I'll Lend You A Child" by Edgar Guest

Hello my sweetest friends! How are you? I have been absent for quite a while, as my Earth family has been very very busy this year. They moved 2000 miles, mom started a new job, wasn't happy with it and started a second new job. *giggles* 'Humans'! Dad is very busy with his work, and now they're moving again. SO I apawlogize for not having been around.
I woke up this morning to find lots of nice messages and presents on my page and I didn't understand... until my kindest Catster friends reminded me that today is my birthday!!
HAPPY little angel purrssss!
Mom feels badly for forgetting my birthday... *whispers into mom's heart*: It is okay, mommy. I know that you beliEVE!
I am celebrating my second birthday at the Beautiful Bridge amongst all of my wonderful angel friends. It is never easy celebrating an angel's birthday, especially when he or she became an angel at an age far, far too young. I was but a kitten when I made my Journey. *hands mom a kleenex* Sometimes memories open up old wounds and the pain becomes fresh again as if it were yesterday. I am writing in my diary not to bring forth sadness, but to bring to light the plight of all of our shelter friends, who are homeless, unwanted, ill, injured and..... forgotten. It is so very important that our shelters are staffed properly and provide adequate care and love to their residents. I did not receive that care, and that is why I journeyed to the Bridge at just 7 months of age.
Please... please read my first diary entry (and please grab a kleenex) and take a moment to think... what can I do to help just one needy animal today?
On a happy note, concats to my big brofur Tigger for being a DDP honoree! Thank you Tigger, for writing about the importance of providing for shelter animals as well.
I love you all, thank you for beliEVEing! Please join me in my birthday celebration and share in the love and light that we angels all have to give!

I haven't written in a while as my Earth mom has been so swamped in the swamp of life.. teehee.
I want to say that some kind fur generously gave rosettes, anonymous rosettes, to all of our angel family members, and I (we) cannot thank you enough for the delightful surprise that touched our hearts; we truly appreciate the thoughtfulness. It truly has warmed my family's hearts, whoever you are, and we thank you for remembering and beliEVEing!
*happy little angel purrsss*
Thank you, sweet giver...may you receive in return and feel the love and joy of the gift of love from one that asks for nothing in return tenfold... love love love to you!
Eve, Perky, Oingo, Boingo and (not sure) Chandon... (missing)
