I was once a forgotten kitten who has now touched the lives- of many

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

I'm looking down on you mommy, and I am smiling! Please don't be so sad, please don't cry...

My mommy is overwhelmed at all of the love that I am being shown. Mommy, it is making up for all of the lost time that I was unloved, it is okay! All of a sudden, I have wonderful friends that I never had, and I have been showered with gifts, notes and wonderful kindness.

Mommy is so grateful for all of you, thank you, thank you. She can't stop the tears of gratitude, of sadness, of happiness, of anger... at "that place".

We wish to thank you all for such an outpouring of love and support during this difficult time. I promise to get back to each and every one of you for BELIEVING and for LOVING me.

Mommy whispered to me last night in a dream, that this has been one of the most heartbreaking experiences she's ever felt, and hopes that all of the other kitties and doggies at Okefenokee shelter will be acknowledged, saved, loved and cared for before another tragedy strikes.

I need to send a special congratulations out to my brofur George's girlfriend, NAKITA , on her DDP win today. Concats, sweetheart; thank you for writing about me. I love you so much...

 

Beautiful poems for me and mom from our friends, to give us- comfort

Thank you, MINISTER MISTY. This is touching and comforting.


When I Woke up this Morning I Felt Very Odd
I Don't Know Why, but I Felt Close to God
The Sun Was Shining, the Birds Were Singing
The Music Was Soft, the Bells Were Ringing
And Kitties Were Romping at Play
What a Pleasant Start of a Wonderful Day
I Remember Laying down to Take a Nap
I Remember I Had My Head in Her Lap
I Remember the Sad Look in Her Eye
I Remember I Had Never Seen Her Cry.
I Remember I Wanted to Ask Her Why
I Remember Hearing Her Say, Goodbye
I Wanted to Say Don't Cry for Me
I Wanted to Say, Just Remember Me
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Toys
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Joys
I Wanted to Say, I Love You So Much
I Wanted to Say, How I Loved Your Touch
Oh Please Let Me Hug You
Oh Please Let Me Kiss You
Oh Please Let Me Tell You
What an Angel You've Been
Oh Please Let Me Thank You
for Showing Me Him
I Knew When I Woke up
There Would Be No Pain
I Knew If I Wanted to
I Could Play in the Rain
I Knew That I Would Remember
the Love You Gave Me Forever
You've Taken Care of Me
All My Life You've Guarded Me from Trouble and Strife
You've Taken Care of Me thru Good and Bad
You've Always Stopped Me from Feeling Sad
You've Given Me Treats and Given Me Care
You've Told Me What to Expect When I Got There
So Please Don't Cry, Wipe the Tears from Your Eye
I'll Look down upon You and with a Woof and a Sigh
I'll Gather My Courage and March up to God and Ask Him
When You Get Here to Give You a Nod
for You Were My Master and You Were My Friend
and I'll Be Waiting for You at the Rainbows End.


Thank you BOBBIE SUE... mommy takes great comfort in reading this lovely poem and holding it close to her heart.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

(1) I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

(2) When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!)


Thank you sweetest POPPET for this lovely poem…. It touches our hearts as you’ve touched ours…

Weep not for me though I have gone
into that gentle night,
grieve if you will, but not for long
upon my soul's sweet flight.

I am at peace, my soul's at rest,
there is no need for tears,
for with your love I was so blessed.

There is no pain, I suffer not,
let sadness all be gone, put now
these things out of your thoughts
for in your memory I live on.

Remember not the loss of breath,
remember not your strife,
please do not dwell upon my death
but celebrate my life.

This lovely piece is from TINKERBELL
thank you dear friend; I am deeply appreciative of your kind thoughts~

Auntie Jody and Uncle Danny sent mom the last photos of me. Precious memories. Precious Evie, me. Sweet Uncle Danny is helping me walk .... for the last time...

Mom thought this would get better, but it is still so painful, no matter how much I tell her it is okay. It will get better.

Mommy looks at me with pride: Evie, seeing you fighting to be strong just makes me love you so much more, always and always more~

The relationship between two souls that were meant for each- other

January 8th 2010 6:45 am
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ]

Do you believe in signs? Mom does, and she believes I sent her a sign.

Mommy never told any of her friends this, but she’s letting me share this in my diary. Even daddy doesn’t know. I came to mom the day I crossed and soared upward to the Bridge, and sent her a "sign". She didn’t know it at the time, but she does now and feels the wondrous love of a little soul that touched her so deeply.

The day I made my Journey, mom began reading a book called “The Art of Racing in the Rain”. It is narrated by a golden retriever by the name of Enzo. (It is a delightful book!) In the opening chapter an elderly and frail Enzo “talked” of just wanting to be…. Set free. And that he was ready and unafraid to go to the Bridge.

(Mommy, I had to let you know … that I was ready, and unafraid to make my transition. It is okay now)

Enzo had a unique talent; he was able to sense sickness that humans could not. His human mom was terminally ill with brain cancer, and nobody knew of it until later on… nobody knew of it except for Enzo. His Earth mother made an unexpected Journey to Heaven. Her name was Eve.

EVE….


Mommy speaking:
Evie darling, thank you for coming to me and letting me know that it is okay. I believe in your powerful, loving presence…I saw the signs in the book that you meant for me to start reading on 1/3/10, the day you crossed. Both Auntie Jody and I are sharing you with all of our love and keeping your precious memory alive. We both love you deeply, little Eve.

Auntie Jody has a beautiful mahogany urn engraved with Eve’s name, where she will rest and be at home with us always. It has been a long and emotional week for both of our families and we are coming to terms with Eve’s crossing and beginning to feel peace.

Many heartfelt thanks to all of our friends; human, feline and canine, for helping us through this, for listening, for letting us pour our thoughts out on paper, for letting us cry, for all of the love and support and for all of the beautiful gifts.

OMC, I can't believe it! Thank you for bestowing the Diary of the Day honor on me! ME! The little forgotten one who was once unloved and uncared for. My heart basket is overflowing and my spirit is brimming with JOY!

I BELIEVE!

Thank you HQ and Diary Gal. And thank you to all who BELIEVE in me and love me! I think the most important thing about this honor is to get more purrs and furs to read my story and join together in the effort to stop what is happening in overcrowded and understaffed shelters.

Please, if you have a moment, please sign this petition on my behalf. We are hoping that my death was not in vain, and will serve to save others in the future. Click on this link and it will take you right to the site: JUSTICE FOR EVE

Something good that came of my ordeal is that my family has forged a very strong bond with SCARLETT & FAMILY . This is my Auntie Jody’s family. And I wish to call Jody, “Mommy Jody” now. For she is as close to me as my mommy Terry is; if not more so, as she is the one that rescued me and gave me comfort in my final days. Mommy Jody and mommy Terry have agreed to share my ashes, so I will have two urns and two memorials in two very special homes. My spirit entwines all of us in forever love and friendship.

Please take a moment if you can and read the touching diary entry my sister Scarlett wrote. Click here to go to her page…
SCARLETT
I love you, Scarlett and all of my siblings both here in MN and in GA.

Mommy Terry will post a picture of my memorial on my page when my ashes come home to their final resting place at my second home in MN.

Thank you to all who have signed my petition; please continue to spread the word. I love you all~

The 4th annual white star whitester day

January 15th 2010 7:27 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Each year on January 15th, a number of sweet white cats from the Pure White Kitty Club painstakingly choose some non-white kitties that have added something special to the Catster Community. Each white cat announces an award to a special kitty. Well imagine my surprise when I got a pmail from my dear, dear friend SIMI, giving me the white star and bestowing this beautiful gift to me! I received it in recognition of all that I so valiantly fought for (life) and all that I will continue to valiantly fight for (other's lives) so that what happened to me will not happen to any others.

I put my beautiful white star on my page for all to see!

Thank you Simi, I will treasure this always.

I am now in my final resting places at both mommy Terry and mommy Jody’s houses. I have 2 beautiful little urns engraved with my name, and a special little shrine area at each house. I am happy to be home with those that love me. Mom will post pictures of my lovely memorial areas as soon as she takes them and as soon as mommy Jody sends hers. I love having two mommies; I feel so loved!

I wish to give special thanks to my best friend SIR SONNY BONO for all of his efforts at making my petition a success. We gathered over 1,000 signatures and exceeded our goal! Thank you all who beliEVE. I’m not sure what the next step will be, but we WILL be taking steps on behalf of all of our shelter friends.

Sending my love to you and sprinkling beautiful Angel Dust over my Earth friends~
