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.

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

That is so sweet. It takes a while to heal, Mom just had a cry a few days ago when she heard a song that reminds her of Tuxs passing. Purrs.
