CeeCee's Cat Candy

A bittersweet day of memories

Hello everyone,
Today was the day mom and dad rescued me from the rescue I lived in. I was there a short time, I had been taken in, after living in a garage for a little while with some other cats. I had been rescued by a kind person from the streets of Brooklyn, after probably being put out by someone...
As I was a senior, it was always always wondered if my person had passed on, wound up in a nursing home, or if I had been lost. As mom did look at lost and founds on Pet Finder for me, and never saw anything, she always wondered.
I was bought to the Cat Rescue...but I hated it. I was frightened and stopped eating. I might not have been eating for some time. Mommy and Daddy and Auntie Celia, the lady who worked there tried to help me. Nothing worked.
I don't want to go over what happened...for it doesn't matter now. You can read it on my page. Suffice to say, Mommy and Daddy adopted me to get me the care I so badly needed....but it was too late.

Mommy always regrets not stepping in sooner. But she could not know that not all rescues are good. Nor are vets. The strongest caution my story offers is to be careful where a cat goes...rescue or vet.

Now, after a year, I live here at the Bridge. I am fine...my little earthly friend CK Angel Ryder lives with Mom and Dad...my gift to them for all they did for me.

Mommy, don't be sad. You and Daddy did all you could. I made the choise when Alex, her peacock colored wings blazing before me, gave me the choice...fight...continue...or leap the light fantastic and catch hold of my paw and soar with me to the beginning of all.

I simply could not resist. I loved you...and I know you and Dr. P and the good Vets and staff of Vet Care Unlimited did all you could to erase the bad concentration camp of Howard Beach Animal Clinic from my memory. But even so, dear people, I hold no grudges, for we cats are bigger than that.

And today, I stand, one paw foward, with the Greats here....Big Harry on my Right, Queen T on my left, Angel Alex nearby sweeping along on such bright wings, Calvin and Hazel Lucy and Natasha, and Tigger, and Ollie and tiny little Silvio and...all those who have come here...and I look into a million shades of emerald and gold and blue and hazel and those colors in between, and I turn my head to watch as a feline spirit and soul leaps high into the blue sky and then turning a summmersalt, folds back wings and hurtles down toward that place where the material world of earth is...and I know and can feel his joy as he becomes again fur and purrs to reunite with his pawrents.

Oh my friends, my furs, my people....never fear. We are beyond Real. We are Cat.

And we are Miracles in Fur.

I miss you Mommy. Daddy. Those who saved me and those like me.

And I touch you all with Power of the Paw...

And on this...my Gotcha Day...I send healing miracle energy to those who need it most.

With all my deepest love...

you are proof positive sweet lady that a kitty does not have to be in someone's life to make a huge impact. I know all you went through, as we followed your diary, and so wish things had turned out differently. The most important thing is that you had so very much love when you had to leave. Go and dance in the lovely gardens above & wave your gentle paws over us all. In peace, Tigger, Maizy, Smitty & the little man

I kind of missed part of a sentence there - I meant that a kitty does not have to be in someone's life very long to make a huge impact. And that impact extends to others around you. sigh I guess no posting until AFTER coffee

Aww, we love you CeeCee! And we agree with Tigger, a kitty does not have to be in someone's life for a long time to make a big impact.
