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.

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.

4 years here at the Bridge~

[ 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


Sad Sad Sad News Tonight about our Timmy

Dear furiends,

Since Milo nor Mallee nor Sam nor Ziggy could make this journal entry, I, Smokey Joe, already at the bridge, must inform you that our cousin Timmy has become an Angel as of yesterday. This was sudden. And his mommy Sandy didn't see it coming. It's so sad. He was only 3 years old! And we all are in tears. Mommy Kathy is just beside herself and is trying so hard to comfort Timmy's mommy Sandy, our Auntie.
Here is what we know that happened: Timmy's mommy came home from work yesterday afternoon to find sweet Tim Tim having difficulty breathing. He had 'bubbles' coming from his mouth.
Aunti Sandy and her husband rushed Tim to the nearest ER Vet Hospital. All we know is Timmy had massive fluid on his lungs and the Doc said his heart failed. They tried all they could and Aunti Sandy helped him cross over to the bridge last night. We all are saddened this happened so fast, and mom still can't believe it and has been crying since she heard. Timmy is part of our family and will be forever, but now he is an Angel up in Heaven with me. It's hard, getting his wings...but we know he is flying high and soaring. He will come to know how the bridge works and how us Angels stick together. He's green, so go easy on him, dear Angel furiends. He will need to get adjusted to his new wings. We know he will fly HIGH! Please say a purrayer 'n light a candle fur our sweet Tim Tim, for he has brought love and so many happy times in his three years on Earth.

Momkat...I know it's hard, I know how hard it is to type for me now. Timmy, you sir, are with us heavenly Angels. All of us will take good care of you. Yes we will. We all know how much you loved your mom 'n Ziggy. We know we all have a spawcial place in your heart and always will.

All Paws Go to Heaven will be putting your ashes in a cedar box and you will be home with your mommy soon! We will be updating our diaries when we know more about our Tim Tim.

Thank you in advance for your purrs 'n purrayers...we love you all~~

With Love 'n spawcial thoughts today, we are so sad to realize this upsetting 'n sad news. Our pawsome furiend Big Harry has ventured to the bridge now, just today he was so sick in the hospital and we purrayed so much he would be ok~! But, our Lord decided it was time for him to come on home. Now he is with me and my dear furiend
Sonny Bono who has also written in his diary about our dear furiend, Harry. Purrlease go send his furmilies some love and cares and warm hugs, thank you. I can't write much more, as my momma is crying too hard now. I know how much she misses me, and it's so sad when one of our treasured furiends crosses over. With love we purray. Lord, for the furmily, for the love so deep, for all the good times, we remember, and we thank you. Amen.

That is all I can write now. *Smokey Joe reaches over to hug Big Harry 'n welcome him home*
Sonny my furiend, we shall welcome Big Harry home and make sure he feels the love he truly deserves....All our Angel furiends gather round...we must make Harry welcome.

Furefur all my love,

Hello efuryone~! You all know I basically stay silent as I watch ofur you all 'n also make sure my brofur MILO 'n my sisfur MALLEE r taken care of~! Well today, mom has had some real troubles here at the home front of Catster. When trying to post new pix, there is a huge problem~! Not sure why, I have several new pix mom wanted to post on my page, but no go~! Can't even put the newest one in the top 10~!!! I wonder what is wrong? We've even gone as far as to delete some of the older ones I have had on there. Anyway, I just wondered if any of you have had the same problems???
Also, I wanted to say how sad we all are about losing our dear furiends, TABBIES of TROUT TOWN~!! We already miss them so much~! We did not find out until early this morning that they had left yesterday. I got a post on my picture where we could find them at their blog site. Here is the web page if you need it:
Not really knowing why they had left, we did some digging. Several furiends posted diaries about them leaving. Now we know why. Seems there was an article on Catster's Magazine about some stoopid dood that made a spectacle out of his deceased cat. And something else about a cats skull. Well you can read it for yourselves if you are able. My stomach turned and mom cried so I made her turn it off. I think Catster is trying to keep up with trends and latest news. But maybe some things should stay off Catster. Other folks are just a little too weird for us. Mom says when a loving member of the family passes on to the Rainbow Bridge, they should be given a loving and most honorable burial. Family is not just tossed away like that. That is how and why us Rainbow Bridge kitties are kept alive and in memory. We were loved and still are~!!!! For goodness sake, we share their lives each and efury day~! Mom has my collar, she has my paw print, she has a lovely gray kitty angel pin from a furiend. She knows I will be remembered and loved always. I am not going to preach, you have your own ideas, your own thoughts. But sometimes life gets ridiculous. If we want weird news, we can go find it on the internet. I'm done.

Purrlease take care 'n I hope I won't be one to be banished for this diary.
I only know we DO still have freedom of speech ~!!!!

Peace out 'n Love always,

Smokey Joe
Baby Boy Blue, Cloud # 9


I love my Furiends so much~!!

Hello and Greetings from the Bridge. First off, I want to say Happy Easter to you all~!
It's been a pawsome weekend here at the bridge, as my Rainbow Bridge Day was Friday and all of us angels got together and had a blast arouend my Cloud 9!~ I just can't find the words to Thank you all so much for the gifties, pmails, and pictures for my Third year anniversary here at the Bridge. Mommy says it really doesn't seem that long, but then MILO will be 4 years old on May 30th, so time does fly. MILO was almost a year old when mom found him. I sent mommy to that shelter that day. She really wasn't interested in taking a new kit home, but I insisted. She needed MILO and he is so good for her~! That is what we angel kits do. We make sure that when we leave the real world and God takes us back home, that our moms know where to find another kit who is in need of a good home and furmily to love. And it's amazing that Mallee found her way also to my mom. And believe it or not, she will be turning 1 year old on April 15th~!! What a fun 'n happy kitty she is~!! Now mom has two kits to purrlay with and watch grow up and love on. Purrs 'n kudo's to those fursibs of mine~! Mommy is so happy she has them both~!
Friday, as my Rainbow Bridge day came, mom could always remember the fun we had, the moments of peace, the purrlaying, and how talented I was. She said I was one in a million. Thanks mommy, cause I really enjoyed our fun times, riding your shoulders, Batting the ballie 'n bringing it back to you. Riding in the car. Going inside Lowes and all the people just ooo'd 'n aww'd me and petted me and I loved it. I was Lowe's mascot kitty~! I loved peeps. And I was always there for mommy in good times and bad. This is how I know that Mom will always remember me. And I will always look out for her, as I will always look out for you too~!
Ya know, us kitties don't really ever die, we just take a mew form. Mom says I was reincarnated in MILO. Well, I do sneak him lotsa hints 'n whispers in his ears~! MOL~!Well he really needs help and I am glad to be there for him. He's done well, and I am purroud of him too. And I am purroud of all my furiends here on Catster.
Thank you all again, for your wishes and purrs. That made mommy's day. Even though she's been on vacation, she made time to venture on Catster, because Catster is furry important to her. My furiends are furry important.

May your Easter Sunday be full of joy, happiness and lots of love.

Purrs 'n Big Angel hugs,
Smokey Joe
