Us Taylor Tribe angels watched over the family as they had Christmas today.
There were many pressies and of course candles lit for us that are not on the earthly plain.
We would like to share 2 things that happened in october.....2 early christmas additions to the family.
Please welcome Pixie and Mutzi to Catster.
It has been a wonderful experience watching over the family this Christmas, for 4 cats it was there first ever Christmas, Mally, Izzy, Pixie and Mutzi. O'mally had a great time and really joined in, considering he has brain damage, he was just fascinated by everything. Izzy joined in too, Pixie watched from near by and joined in a bit but it got too much for Mutzi and he wasnt sure what to do. But they all had fun with all the new toys and treats, they really were spoilt.

We are very honored that Gizmo was chosen to be COTD today, on Christmas day.
The week that Gizmo died was very hard, mom also lost her oldest rabbit (9 years) and a cat that she had looked after at work for 7 years. Christmas is going to be very hard with 3 of us not here this year and mom working on the day.
Christmas in our house has been delayed until tomorrow as mom didnt want to rush christmas at home and then go off to work at 3pm til 10pm.
What a surprise when she parked her car this eve at aunty moms.......aunty mom told her that Gizmo was COTD today and that aunty mom had done her picture. Mom rushed home to put the puter on to have a look and the tears started.
Thank you so much for all your gifts. The support of catsters all over the world helps so much.
Happy Christmas to you all and remember your angels are always with you.

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
AT RAINBOW BRIDGE
T'was the night before Christmas, at Rainbow Bridge too.
We Bridge kids were thinking as always of you.
We'd seen how the holidays weren't bright this year,
Heard you whisper so often, "I wish you were here!"
We know how you wish you could just stay in bed
And sleep through the holiday lying ahead,
When all celebrate with their loved ones so near...
Unless they have loved ones on this side this year.
But we're no less alive here, on the other side.
If you could just see us, you would've laughed and not cried.
The dogs all in harness, pulling the sleigh.
The cats all in Santa hats pointing the way.
The pet birds all flying back over the rainbow,
Bound homeward in spite of Earth's darkness and snow.
All the pets that you've lost, pets for whom you've cried,
Flying home on this Christmas to be by your side.
If you feel warm fur brush you when no pet's around,
Hear a soft bark or purr, just a ghost of a sound,
We're trying to tell you we're visiting this way,
And our visits, even rainbows, can be on any day.
But for Christmas we have something special to do,
A sleigh full of happy dream visits for you.
On doggy, on kitty, on winged friend and ferret!
The love that you lavished, we mean now to share it!
We're fetching that love home, the way we once played,
With the closeness we shared and the memories we made.
Our Earth lives with you were too short for us, too,
And on this Christmas Eve we have so much to do.
So all through this night as you sleep in your beds,
Sweet visions of fur babies dance in your heads.
This one special night we can bring you Home for a while,
Your true home in Heaven, where again you will smile.
Over the rainbow you'll fly, for a short while this night,
Hours that you'll be happy, hours that will feel right,
Hours to cuddle and hug us, to run and to play,
Before the return to Earth in our magic way.
And when you awaken and face Christmas Day,
We pray you'll remember your trip on our sleigh,
But in case you forget, just remember our love.
Remember us watching you, your angels above.
Sending love wrapped in rainbows, shining and bright,
Love that will guide you through the darkest night,
Love found in each memory unwrapped through the year,
Replacing dark sorrows with Christmas cheer.
Leave the toys to St. Nick, we Bridge kids bring dreams,
Sweet visits to remind you all is not as it seems
When you look all around you with tired Earthly eyes.
If you saw as we do, there'd be joy and surprise.
There are fur angels waiting by those Christmas trees,
Always there for you and hearing your pleas.
We're never more than a thought away from your home,
You're never forgotten, you're never alone.
Nor are we alone here, with our Rainbow Bridge friends.
We know only joy here, the celebrating never ends,
And after our reunions with you Christmas Eve,
We Bridge kids will party like you'd never believe.
But we'll slip away often to be by your side.
Sitting there watching you, eyes open wide,
Praying you'll be able to catch a glimpse of us, too.
But whether or not you see us - Merry Christmas to you!
