Some of our dear beloved furiends have flown just recently, including handsome mancat PAISAN, our dear Diva furiend IVY, our saweet 'n precious furiend SAMPY, 'n pawsome doodman HOBO 'n oh our precious beautiful STORMY ~!!

These 'n many more ARE our beloved furiends. Our lifelong furiends.

Hi my pawsome Furiends~! Long time no speak 'n write here in my Diary/Journal.
I flew down from heaven this morning early to whisper into momcat's ear, Hey MOM~!!! I need to talk to my wonderful Catster furiends 'n furmilies! So here I am. Although mom can't see me, she feels me 'n she knows I am here often with her, showing her the way 'n helping with decisions and keeping my furbro Milo 'n my fursis Mallee in line! I must do that, it's what us Angels do~!

We are furry busy ya know!

Let me tell you what all we do here in heaven helping make it the bright, lovely 'n furtastic purrlace that it is~ :D Yes we play many sports 'n we bowl efury Caturday night, just like last night~! I am not so good, but I purrlay anyway~! MOL~ All our angel furiends gather round 'n we share catweiser's 'n mega nip nachos! Yes it's a blast. We dance, 'n sing 'n oh my yes, we EAT~ It's ALL so good~!

That is not all we do! But we DO pawty a LOT ;D~ Hehehee!

Being an Angel, yes, We always keep watch, we always have some much needed kit whofur needs our love, our golden rainbow dusties to sprinkle down, our purrs 'n our strong undivided purrayers. Those kits, those who are sick, those whose mom's 'n dad's need our spawcial comforting thoughts, our devoted ways, our hugs 'n our For Ever love.
Ya know, all of it is needed here~!

We Understand. We know that feeling. The loss of a pure unconditionally loved fur child.

The comfort is the fact that coming here, coming to OUR purrlace, our Catster purrlace, we all share this ONE characteristic~! The heartfelt memories, those dearest to us. Those forever loved.

So, with mom's help, I come to you all to share my love, my memories, and as you all remember your loved ones, your angels that once roamed the Earth, remember us with love, with fondness and forever keep OUR LOVE alive.

Here is where we come to do just that. These thoughts came to me when mom read my dearest furiend, my angel BFF Flyin' buddy, RAINCLOUD's diary. =^.^=
You my love, said a mouthful~!!

We live on. We love on. For we will never be forgotten.

It's HERE we reign~!!

Smokey Joe sends massive spawcial angel hugs all around.
Share that love. Spread that love.

We are united. (") (")

For Ever.

BelEVEing We Do Go On~!

Smokey Joe here with mom helping me write in my diary on my 5th year Bridge day~

Dear Diary/Journal,

Mom hesitated today..to come and write in my diary, as it's been such a dreary 'n wet, gloomy day here in San Antonio. We are all so sick and tired of the cloudy mess and fog that has fallen upon us lately. Mom wonders, does the pain of losing a sweet loved one ever go away, but then answered herself; nope, it might get a bit easier, but the pain and tears still come. And on this day, yet another tear fell.

Mom must think about my fur sibs, Milo and Mallee, yes that is what she lives for now; them. Of course I watch over them, but don't we all know that someday they too, will be here with me? Mom frets each day, knowing that I was cut short of my life on Earth. Still she says, those 5 years were the best she'd ever had with me, and I was a good kitty, a soul mate, a best friend. She smiles thinking of Milo and Mallee. And Milo, being her flame point baby boy, yeah, she smiles. I am glad. I have my little furbro to go on with my legacy!!! And yes, being over here at the Rainbow Bridge, I am thought of and loved forever. I know that. All my Angel friends know this. We were/are/and always will be loved. As for our friends here on Earth, well, I love them all. Mom says that a cat isn't just a cat when it is part of a loving family!~ We are children of sorts, don't ya know? Yeah, we here at Catster know that feeling. This is why my family and friends here understand that our lives, our kitten lives, are never long enough on Earth, never. But as the circle and cycle of life turns, as with humans also, we go on. We travel across the bridge so that another life can have a place here on this planet. You all remember that story, "We chose Tears"? Yeah, that little orange boy didn't understand, but he learned. And the Angels helped.

I want to take this time, as mom writes for me through foggy eyes, to say how much I purrpreciate all the prezzie's brought forth on my page by my purrfect friends here at Catster. You all are so spawcial to mom 'n me 'n Milo 'n Mallee. We have a family here. Thank you. Thank you for being here for us. Thank you Catster for sticking around and not shutting down our pawsome hang out. And know we aren't here all the time, for we can not be. Life has ups and downs and so...as much as we'd like to be here more, sometimes mom can not take the stress on her eyes anymore. But, you know we are here, you all know we hang out. Yes.

And together we will always be.

And our Angels are forever.

Dream on and Dream big for life is too short to stop dreaming.

Reach for the skies. We are here.

'n Love will light the way.

We go on and on....

Thank you,

Loving always,

Angel Smokey Joe

Hi Efuryone~! I would love to say that we are one happy families knowing our CATSTER COMMUNITY will be sticking around~! Oh, wow, you gotta know mom was in tears reading the fact that Catster was closing and shutting down all the pawsome Communities and forums and diaries, etc.

That just WOULD not work~ We fought, we rallied, we protested~!
We won. I just hope we did.

Catster rocks, we all know this. We have so MANY warm, thoughttful, caring, loving furiends. These furiends have been in our lives a long long time~! WE do not want to LOSE them~! That would really bite, mom says MOL~ Anyfur, we are very thankful that we do have a bit more time here.

I love each and every one of my pawsome, enduring furiends. OUR furiends, one's we've made for years. YOU... make what Catster is. We ALL make it so.

From Heaven and the above, all my love, watching over you all, all our memories, all our antics, our unconditional closeness, all our being together and knowing just knowing, we make our parents happy, this is what counts. This is what rocks.

Keep all the Angels in mind. Keep us in your hearts. Keep us strong. For we were once a part of that vast timeline that MADE your lives happy. Yes.

We love you. I love you.
And Mom, I will continue to watch over Milo 'n Mallee and you also.

Purrs, Love, Angel winged Hugs and Love,

Catebrating my Gotcha Day~!

[ View A Comments (7) ]

Well efuryone, it's been bittersweet for mom these last few years, knowing I only lived for 5 Earth years with her in my furefur home. Mom remembers that spawcial day well. Me, well I was so small and so cute, I just fit right in her hand. It was a grand day. Mom looks to the skies each night and feels me all around her.
In the beginning I was sick 'n malnourished, but mom came to the rescue and made homemade foodage to make my life complete. How yummy it all was, baked chicken and all!!! She thought I wouldn't survive those first few months, but I DID~!!! I grew and grew to be a really BIG fellow!!! Mom still sheds those tears for me. I know she loved me and still loves me very much. I loved her so much. So on my precious Gotcha Gotted Day, I thank all my friends for coming over and sending pawsome gifties to my page. This makes mom feel so much closer to me and she thanks you too. My spawcial precious furiends on Catster are very very important to me. You all rock. Now me and Sir Sonny Bono and all the pawsome Angels are going to go catebrate down at the Angel Inn and sneak in to the Angel Cafe and get some yummy Heavenly foodage. Thank you, thank you for remembering me.

For LOVE never dies. Never.

Angel hugs galore,

Amazing Furiends~!!!

Hello, well it's been a long time since mom halped me write in my diary/journal. I miss Catster so much and playing in groups. So much fun has been had and memories will forever linger within us all. Mom 'n Paw still have been very busy and lots of things going on in their new country home. Mom is doing so much better and feels better each day. I still watch over Milo 'n Mallee, but they are sooo much happier in the big huge house with so much room to run around. Did you know that Milo is now a lap kitty? How funny. They play chase and wrestle and even sleep together a lot, especially when temps dipped down into the 30's for a couple days. Paw got new heaters and everyone dragged out winter clothes, only to find temps back up in the 70's and 80's this weekend. Mom says that is the pleasures of living in South Texas~!! MOL~!
So, mainly I wanted to write and express my heart felt purrpreciation for all the gifties, notes, and comments, pictures and love shown for my Happy Birthday yesterday. I would have been 10. Only traveling to the bridge before I turned 6 that year in 2009. Mom still remembers everything about me as clear as day. Thank you my pawsome furiends, you are what makes Catster the community that we all love. Mom gets teary eyed when she thinks of all the love that is shown here, always. Our love of our kitties, past, present efen future brings us together as one big happy family. Here we are all the same. That is what mom says. We all know the love and affection and entertainment we kitties show our pawrents. Wow, that Mallee is really a big laugh~!! She is so smart!!! Still food oriented, she is learning tricks now. Milo is a goof ball sometimes. They sleep much of the day, but when early morning rolls around, like 3 or 4 in the morning, Milo will wake up mom with a paw to the face~!! She will get up just to watch them silly willies play hide and seek and chase through ALL the rooms in the house. It's big. Mallee darts across the long kitchen floor and sounds like a group of wild horses running!~ MOL~! Boxes are coming into the house and staying. Hehehee, the boxes the heaters came in are now condo's on top of each other and Milo will venture upstairs and Mallee downstairs and they will really have a blast~!! Paw has started to be the TREAT giver just about everyday. Sometimes they both even gather in the den and sit right next to each other, which mom realized that is when they are asking for treats~! Paw has bought sooo many different kinds of treats, these kits are really super spoiled!!! But ya know, they bring so much happiness to Mom 'n Paw. Paw has always been mainly a dog guy person, but has had many cats too. He loves them all. Mom's eyes tear up when she thinks how good of a man she latched on to. As fate would have it, they dated 4 years, and now get to live and be with each other for the rest of their lives. Paw is sooo good to mom. This makes me happy.
My grand furiends, thank you for being so excellent to all of us. I wanted to say thanks and to give a little update here for sharing.
We angels had a grand time for my birthday in Heaven. As always Raincloud made her astonishing cream cheese frosting, as Timmy Tim baked a very large triple layer cake, then we all settled in at the Angel Inn and partying the night away, dancing and singing. My lovely Sadie dances devine and we had the last dance before ventured some high flying to sprinkle some much needed angel dusties on tonza kitties who are sick, in need and have grieving pawrents. That is what we Angels do. We will always be around.

Thank you for reading my journal. I treasure each of you.

Hello my sweet furiends~! Well our Angel Timmy is having a Happy Birthday here today at the bridge. It's his first birthday here. He is such a good angel and can really fly good now. I am preparing a nice HUGE triple layer cake in his honor as well as Raincloud's yummy cream cheese frosting on top~ It's a catniptini kind of day. Mmmm, I think I smell BBQ too~!

I know how much we are missed here at the bridge, but our mom's will always remember us and cherish those spawcial days we were all together. My lady, Sadie 'n I will dance and sing for Tim Tim down at the Angel Inn. All our pawsome angel furiends will be gathering together to enjoy a really fun time, as we watch Timmy race around chasing butterflies and running through fields of catnip meadows. We have so many spawcial purrlaces to share our love. Mom says that all of us angels really know how to pawty. I know Sonny Bono will help with getting the catniptini's 'n catwiesers ready for tonight, in honor of Timmy's spawcial day. Cloud nine will be rockin'~!!

Thursday is my furbro Milo's 5th birthday and we'll all be catebratin' once again.

To all my earth furiends, a happy week ahead, 'n hope you all had a furry safe 'n Happy Memorial Day weekend. Smokey Joe 'n mom send lots of love to all our Catster furiends.

Another Tag Game courtesy of our grand furiend TINK!!!

April 5th 2013 7:26 am
[ View A Comments (3) ]

Hey Efurone! So this Tag game probably should have been played yesterday, since it was originally titled April 4 Tag Game. I was tagged by TINK .
Thank you for tagging me and saying I am a very good Angel!! You are very sweet Tink!!

Ok here goes.

Questions:
1. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY CUTE.

Well when I was still on Earth, mommy did quite a few cute things with me. She would dance with me, I would always be on top of her shoulders and the music would be going and she would sing while swaying to the music. I always stayed right there with my paws wrapped around her neck. Sometimes she would get to boppin' MOL! And I would still hold strong. She always said I was her aerobics instructor!! Now dance kick, dance kick, anyone up for dancin' to the oldies??? MOL!

2. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY LAME.

Alright, mom's can be lame sometimes but the only thing I can think of right now is mom could never tell a good joke. She expected me to laugh with her, but I thought most of them were quite annoying! Shhh don't tell her I said that!!!

Tink is right, this is HOW we all get to know each other and it is fun to read others diaries and answers. I tag anyfur that would like to play and consider yourself tagged if you're reading this.

Thanks again Tink and we're off to read others April 4 Tag Game entries.

Now MILO needs to get his Spring tag game finished in his diary. Mom wanted to help me do mine first. Thanks also for all the purrs for mom. She is feeling a bit better.

Love,
Smokey Joe

4 years here at the Bridge~

April 3rd 2013 10:59 am
[ View A Comments (11) ]

Hello all my grand furiends!~ It's been awhile since I wrote in my diary/journal. Mom almost furgot that I have a bridge day coming up on April 6th, that's this Caturday. It's been 4 years now. Mom still misses me and I miss her so much, but our days up here are different. We share a lot, all the pawsome Angels. We have bridge pawties, birthdays, share honors, and we purrlay and dance down at the Angel Inn. We can eat all we want oh yeah, love that spawcial salmon they cook up at the Angel Cafe. I'm happy here in Heaven, mom. And I'm really really good at flying now!!!

Now, Mommy would like to make a few Special Tributes to me:

To my baby boy blue Smokey Joe, my Russian Blue DSH-November 15th, 2003 – April 6th, 2009 You and I were a match, a team, a feline companion and friend. You amazed me with your talents, riding my shoulders, perched like a panther in reckless solitude. So confident, so proud! For the short five years we were together, just you and I, will never be forgotten. You're in my heart, where memories flourish. The void of losing you will never be fulfilled. Smokey Joe, my silken blue furred kitteh, my baby boy, the strength of light which shown on me for five years. Thank you for being a 'season' of warmth, beauty, wisdom and understanding. The affection and tenderness you've shown me has uplifted my world in times of hardship, sickness, and pain. You’ll be Forever in my heart, my beloved One!~

Smokey Joe -- my beloved feline companion and best friend-
Smokey Joe was a DSH Russian Blue. He was gorgeous with silken blue fur, two toned, like a silk scarf to the touch. Brilliant, quite feline, with his sparkling green eyes which entranced you to do anything he wanted. His gift was just being. He was my best friend, and showed affection by head butting, and licking my face, and hand. He slept with me every night on my shoulder, paw stretched out over my chest. His purrs were low and gentle, but strong and meaningful. I was blessed with having him around for five years. In his younger years he would play fetch and bring the bally back to me. Later, he was there, and followed me everywhere. We had a close connection, type bond which will not soon, if ever, be replaced.

Previous Home: Operation Kindness, Carrollton, TX

And here is my poem for you mom:

I pounced upon your bed last night
I came with one loving leap,
I could see that you’d been crying,
And found it hard to sleep.

I mewed to you quite softly,
Whispering loving words so true,
I miss you so much mommy,
But I am here, it’s your lovable Baby Boy Blue!

I watch you close,
Each day as it unfolds
As you carry on each hectic hour
With whatever life holds.

To know I share your memories,
Peaceful within I want you to be
I’m so happy in Heaven now
Oh my! I'm with my sweet Sadie, can’t you see?

Know I care about our memories
Our love is a strong bind,
Watch Sadie and me paw ‘n paw,
How wonderful and it’s so kind!

And when the time is right for you
To cross our Grand Divide,
I’ll be here to welcome you,
We’ll be together, always, side by side!

I love you mom, always!! Thanks for always remembering me!!!

Since mom's been so sick, we haven't been able to purrlay here much and we miss you all so furry much! Just know we will be back slowly, as mom recoups. Thanks for reading my diary.

Your beloved Angel Smokey Joe,
Baby Boy Blue, Cloud # 9
