In the beginning

Fur friends and neighbors, mommy is finally coming around to be able to share the life we spent together. I was only 5 weeks old when mommy came to the no kill shelter to find me among my two other brothers and we were without a mommy. Don't fret, my brothers got adopted by some other nice family also! The shelter said our Cat mommy was killed by a speeding car. I was aggressive because I wanted mommy to pick me! And she could only have one kitty. They had me on vitamin shots and pouch kitten food, because I was so thin, weighing in at only 1.5 lbs. It was Christmas time and mommy had been through some heartbreaking times. Although I am always looking over her, I come to her in much needed stress released dreams, to let her know I am alright and still looking over her. Baby Smokem's was what she would call me. The first few months I spent with my mommy, I was fed people food, like scrambled eggs and shredded chicken cooked with chicken broth. I still had to have shots from my newly found Vet and he really helped mommy take care of me! I grew lots over the months. I was a playful rascal my mom said. I just loved playing ballie with just a rolled up piece of paper and mommy taught me how to bat it back to her. Then I would catch it in my mouth and bring it right back to her. Entertaining her was easy and she really appreciated me. Now she still does. And she wanted to share a few things this time. One of mommy's most favorite thing that I did was to ride atop her shoulders when she came home from work, I would be waiting on top of the love seat and jump up to grab her neck and lay there while she walked around, AND she could even dance with me up there! I would just hold on tight! I trusted her very much and I know she will always and forever remember me, through words and sharing with friends. I was really a king! I am still a King in her heart.

When I am in need of feeling some joy and tender memories, I think of you, Smokem's. Never had I ever had an animal that was as tender and loving as you were. The moments we shared alone, because we had no one else but each other; those were the times when we laughed and played and learned new tricks from each other. I remember when daddy was really terrible to mommy and you'd run and hide under the bed. But that didn't last long, as we got our things together and moved far away from that way of life. You were only three then, but you had the patience to listen to all my woes when no one else would. You'd listen. You'd watch and wait. And I'd cry out of lost dreams, but with thankfulness because you were there. You would jump on my shoulders and encourage me to dance because you'd be right there ne'er tumbling down. We'd dance and you'd be right there at my feet also learning the new steps. We'd play hide n seek and you would be around the corner in the bedroom spying on me. I was hiding in the bathroom, but you could see me in the mirror! I would stoop down and hide behind the bed and you would sit there knowing I would 'peek' upwards to see you winking at me. I cry so much for you my darling Smokey Joe, my baby boy, my green eyed friend. You were a hero when I had no heros to look up to and when my nights were silent, your soft purrs were there to enlight my moments. To fullfil my future, knowing you would be with me for all days. But you were only with me for two more years. Oh how I cherish those two more years, for you brought me so much joy and companionship. I love you baby boy, for all time and forever yet to come. Love, Mommy

 

Furever and Ever

My mommy has been dreaming about me again. She had a lovely dream about me last night, in her arms, on her shoulders, perched proud as I once was. In her dreams I could talk and whispered, furever I will be with you. The little sqeeks of purrs and meows, for I never was a big 'talker' mostly mommy could just read my body language and read my eyes. Mommy said they were peircing green sometimes. I never asked for much, and I never begged. But I was loyal and proud. I wanted to share a poem we found while browsing; which is so befitting us felines thoughts and emotions. Yes we do have emotions, strong and loyal! Never forget we are always with you Furever and Ever!

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul.
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

 

Rainbow Bridge Day April 1st 2010

Hi Paws to all my wonderful friends in catsterland and across Rainbow Bridge, golly it's really huge up here. There is something for everyfur. Mommy is going to celebrate a really nice tradition which begin some 20 yrs ago or so and The Over the Rainbow group is very nice to share this wonderful Idea. You see this way our mommies and daddies can get together different color balloons and fill them with notes and thoughts and fly then into the air on April 1. That day will be marvelous as those multiple colored balloons of the rainbow appear in all the heavens skies. And those notes come straight to us. We here at the Bridge will be able to connect with our open hearts to our families who miss us so dearly. It really gives our hoomans a chance to air out their feelings and us here over the bridge cannot wait to hear from them! I know I will always be with my mommy in her heart and mind. Sometimes she really misses me more than ever and I watch her and want to let her know that I'm here...I really am, here right beside her. She has so much she wants to share with me that goes on in everyday life. But I already know. That's why I keep constant watch. Ever constant. Oh and maybe not when me and Sadie go to Paris for our furtastic adventures, France is blessed with sunny weather, beautiful countryside, a nice selection of beaches, historic cities, ornate churches, picturesque chateaus, and some of the best food and wine in the world. The French take there meals seriously! And so do I! Our next spot to venture is the North of Spain. The fish and seafood of Galicia, among the worlds finest, are prepared in ways that are simply insuperable. Hang with us sometimes, there are endless travel, adventures and scenery in the Summerlands. And as for my wings, I'm really flying high now! It's become really easy to get around. Purrs for happy exploring!

My mommy is gathering up balloons and will be launching those beautful memoriums come next Thursday. Coz my mom really cares for all the kitty's and wants to make sure the ones across Rainbow Bridge are remembered for always and furEver and Never forgotten! Mom has really been enjoying the fun I've been having with my Catster furiends, especially Sadie whom I have become rather fond of. We have been going on trips across this big wide world, flying through the skies, feeling the breeze blowing and being free. We're embarking on a fine adventure to the Hawaiian Islands for Easter. Did you know that the Easter Bunny is going to be there too?! We're going to hunt easter eggs and treats and enjoy the gorgeous blue waters and beaches of Maui. Sadie's mom has been there before, isn't that so cool? We are definately going to enjoy some fresh fruits there, especially the Pineapple. Thank you all for remembering us kitty's in the Summerlands and take care of your kits that live with you and all around. Mom says cats are a very special form of creature, and if you're lucky enough to have one as a furfriend, then you have made it to the top. I love you mommy, please take care of Milo. I know you will becoz you are the World's greatest cat mom!!! Just look at your T-shirt from the animal rescue site! MOL
Look mom, I can always see you and am watching over you!
As alwaya, Your baby boy blue, Smokey Joe

 

April 7th my Bridge Crossing Day

April 3rd 2010 12:10 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Mellow Meow, as mommy thinks and remembers me, knowing my bridge crossover date is coming up soon. I was a very sickly little boy this time last year and there wasn't much anyfur could do for me. The Doc said I had been carrying the FIV gene since I was born. And it just happened to flair up which caused my organs to shut down and massive weight loss. But Mommy remembers me the way I was before I lost weight and became so sick. I was pretty big a few months prior to getting sick, and almost weighed 13 lbs. I was handsome then and I know you loved it when I would jump on your shoulders and just kind of hang there. Nope I wasn't going anywhere and I really kinda like it when you would dance with me up there! You know I really loved the five years we shared together. You were really a great mommy and I remember going up to Lowe's and riding your shoulder for all our friends to see me. I was really a king then. They really loved me too, didn't they mom? My green eyes, you remember what they said about my green eyes? I was a dazzler! My two toned gray coat was so soft and felt just like velvet or silk ribbons. Now you are remembering April 7th the day I couldn't make it any longer here on this Earth. I know your heart was bleeding for me. I saw you cry and tell me goodbye. I felt your tears and knew you would miss me. And you know what mom? I miss you so very much, but I'm here. I'm right here with you always. I'm watching over you and I know you will never forget me. But this is a very hard time for you, see you're crying now. My love will never stray and I will be near you anytime you need to talk, cry or just think. I will always listen. My love will never die.

Mom, thanks for remembering me on my cross over day. Those things you did for me made me realize how much you treasured me. My scrapbook online, the poems you wrote for me and sharing my memories with friends who also have kitty's above and across the Summerlands. With my memory alive and well, it's like I never left you. Because I am with you in your heart and always will be there. I know you still cry and you still have moments where you really miss me. I miss you too and I will always love you. You were a great mom and I know we shared extra special moments. You did not know I would have to leave so soon. But you know in your heart they were great times and special times and for that I will always be truly grateful. You made me a king in hard times, in sad times, in heartbreaking times. You were true to me and I stood by you when there wasn't anyfur around. I know you will always remember me. I love you mommy!

Most of the time, meowma goes about her busy days working and doing what everyfur does in those moments of daylight eating, drinking and playing with their own furiends close. But this week my meowma is so sick. Hers went to ER on Tues and hers stayed all day. Hers couldn't breath and was wheezing bad. That ER doc gave her breath meds so hers can breath now much better. Hers still sick and very tired and can't eat, but I'm watching over hers and hers knows I am here. She dreamed about me last night and I came to her and I really talked, as sometimes when I was in my real life I cud speak some hooman, and hers understood mes. But my mews were really high pitched and hers remembers me an' smiles coz it was funny that I was a guy kitty with a very high squeely pitched voice. MOL I was cute though. Purty quite indeed. Meowma said my green sparklies eyes gave me some rather stunning features and my glossy two toned russian blue grey fur was an exotic vision to all who ventured near me. Meowma really lubbs to remembers me. I was a special little guy whom mommy thought would always be around and couldn't belive when I got caught up with my kid type disease that stoopid FIV stuff and it jus get's in dare and yous can't get it out. Meowma is still sad becoz my crossover year date was this month and hers keeps on seeing mes on the bed all rolled up and curled over an' rollin' over and my tiny squeely mews at hers. She laughs. She crys. She always remembers. And she's so very happy that God gave her the moments, short as they were, to be with me. Five almost six great years spent with my MOMMY, My wonderful MOMMY! As I watch over her from above, I knows she will bes alrite. Cuddle with meowma Mr Milo and take good care of hers. I know you luvs her as much as I do. You're a great kitty and wonderful companion for her. Thank yous for bein' a great Nursie for hers. Make shur she eats something tonight pawlease? Purrs, pats, and warm nudge bumps,
your Smokey Joe, Baby boy Blue

Dear Mom,

As I think about our times together and the love we built upon just us two, because it was only us two. You were my world. And I was yours. We danced together as I would just lay up on your shoulders all wrapped around your neck, just nuzzling there. You would dance and I would purr in your ear. You would sing and I would softly purr again. I remember when you would come home from work and I would be right there waiting by the front door on top of my couch, my love seat. Jumping up to greet you and tenderly landing atop your shoulders. MOL I wouldn't even let you sit down! You would walk around with me there while you did chores or whatever, picking up around the apt. MOM! I LOVE YOU MOM!
Also, Today me and Sadie sprinkled kiss dusties all around your place, did you feel me?! And we also spread the love and angel kisses dusties around Sadie's mom's house. Did you feel us?! We are still lingering there! Feel us?! Sadie love's her mommy so much!! And we know that you mom, and Sadie's mommy Pat, are feeling our love connection today all day long. We are here. WE LOVE YOU BOTH!!!

HAPPY MEOWMY'S DAY TO ALL THE WONDERFUR MOM'S IN CATSTERLAND!!!!
Have a blessed day!!!

Your baby boy blue, Smokey Joe
