Rebby I can't believe it's been another Year and I still Miss You so much. I found this Poem and it really describes how I feel about You.

Best Friend
© Justina M. Hoerner

Remember all the good times,
Remember all the bad.
You stuck with me through everything,
The best friend I have had.

Through trying time you stayed with me.
You've sure improved my life.
You cheered me up when I was down,
Stuck with me through my strife.

Think about the good stuff, too,
Remember when we met?
I knew that I could trust you.
The best friend anyone could get.

Why is it that good things
Never seem to last?
You try to think about them,
But time erases past.

Sometimes I feel your presence,
I seem to hear your voice.
Memories flood back to me,
And I sit and rejoice.

Just know that I miss you.
I never will forget,
The times I spent together
With you, beloved pet.

I Love You Rebby. You will always be My Best Friend!!!

My Friend Droopy at the Rainbow Bridge posted this Beautiful Poem and I thought I'd share it with all of You....

I miss you so much; my four-legged friend
I ask myself each day; if the pain will ever end
Your loss is so hard; for one person to bear
because we were a team; an inseparable pair

You were by my side; when I got up each day
waiting so patiently; to go out and play
You were there each night; when I got home
waiting to go to the park; where you could roam

You always knew; if I was having a bad day
so you'd snuggle up close; and try to get me to play
If that didn't work; you'd put your head in my lap
then make yourself comfortable; and take a nap

One way or another you; would brighten my day
like only you could; you had a special way
You gave me a lifetime; of memories to hold
through all the years ahead; till I'm gray and old

I promise I'll see you; again one day
when we'll be together again; to go run and play
Your loss is a cross; I will just have to bear
because you and I know; we're an inseparable pair

6 Years without Rebby

[ Leave A Comment ]

Hi it's Me The Reb!! Today it's been 6 years since I left Friend and Other Friend for the Rainbow Bridge. I am lucky this year cause Stinky (Other Friend) was kind enough to write about Her memories of Me. She is the one who originally joined Catster for Me and helped Me write all those amusing Diary entries You can see at the beginning of My diary. These are Her thoughts of Me.

Other Friend

This is Other Friend and Me

When I was growing up, I was always envious of the kids who had pets. Sharon had Sheena, the German Shepherd-Husky mix, who was the perfect guard dog and companion. Steve had Poopy, affectionately named because he was “brown and he smelled.” My big cousin Dan had 2, his dog Herman, and a cat named Indiana Jones (soon shortened to “Indy” once he discovered she was a girl.)

I wanted my own pet more than I wanted anything else. I wanted my own companion who would love me unconditionally, would play with me, and fall asleep with me. I settled for fish. I tried to make having fish fun, but really, let's be honest, fish are not suitable pets when everyone around you has amazing cats and dogs.

When I was 13, my wish finally came true in the form of a runt-of-the-litter Persian kitten. He was all white and fluffy, and he looked like a snowball that could fit in the palm of my hand. His eyes were bright copper, shiner than a new penny. His face looked as though someone has pushed into it, squished and flat. He was mine. My very own fuzzy companion.

His named was Rebel, because he never listened to anything, always disobeyed. I decided he needed a fancier name, so I expanded it to Sir Rebel Howard. Sir, to be fancy. Rebel, to keep that name. Howard, after the Backstreet Boy Howie D, because he was the least favorite, and I felt bad that no one would ever name anything after him. Mostly though, we all just called him, “Rebby.”

Rebby was truly the greatest companion. Rebby literally followed me everywhere. If I went into the kitchen, Rebby came too. If I wanted to sit in my room and watch television, Rebby would curl up on my bed and watch with me. If I needed to take a nap, Rebby found it was naptime for himself too. When I needed to go to the bathroom, Rebby patiently waited outside until I came out, and continued his stalking. At night, before bed, I would carry him to his bed, and placed him in it before kissing him on his head, and saying, “Goodnight!” No sooner would I get to my own bedroom door before he was already right next to me, because it was never truly bedtime for Rebby. So, there he would sit, outside my door, and wait patiently until I woke up the next morning.

Rebby was a supernatural clock. He just always knew what time it was. If I was at school, he just knew exactly when it was time to wait at the door for me to get home. If no one had woken to feed him at exactly the right time, he knew, and his paws were suddenly right under the door, reminding you that he was hungry, and you should be awake to feed him. Rebby was also really great at knowing when anyone was sad. If you even had a scent of gloom, Rebby was already there, being cute, or wanting you to rub his belly, or sticking his face under your chin, his own way of supporting you.

Cats typically live for 15 to 20 years, so I never gave it thought that Rebby might not be around well into my adulthood. Sadly, though, Rebby developed poly cystic kidney disease when he was only 6. Even through his vet visits, hooking him up to IV's to clean his kidneys, forcing medicine down his throat, and listening to him quietly meow when he was sure no one was around, Rebby remained unbelievably tough. It truly felt as though he understood exactly what was happening to him, but he didn't want anyone to worry, because it was his job to comfort us, and bring us joy. He stayed strong right on through that very moment when his eyes closed for the last time.

I feel so fortunate that Rebby was my first pet. What I learned from Rebby was what everyone else had already learned from their pets. Your pet is a member of the family, who loves you unconditionally without a thought, and truly becomes your best friend. Rebby brought me so much joy, and love that I will never ever forget, and I'm grateful that I had time with him, even if it was shorter time than normal. Rebby loved so much in 8 years, I think, because he wanted to make sure that love would last for the rest of our lifetimes, and it will. Nothing will ever make me forget that feeling of love I had to first time I held him in the palm of my hand, or that feeling of, “it's okay” the last time I held him in the vet's office. Rebby made sure that he was unforgettable. I miss him every day, I think about him every day, and I always smile or laugh when I remember something about him. Rebby was exactly the companion I always wanted, and I am so thankful that I had him.

Wow Rebby it has been 5 years since You left for the Bridge. I still Miss You so much it Hurts. You were the Best Kitty Boy anyone could ever ask for. I know The Day will come when I'll see You again and We will play Pen and Bouncy Cat. The other day We were talking about what a Good Boy You always were and We could not think of any Bad things You ever did. Other than playing in Your Water Dish which was more of a nervous habit You developed to calm You down so it doesn't count!! Just don't ever Forget how much I Love You and Miss You and look forward to seeing You again. Thanks for being the Sweet Boy You always were!! I Love You Reb!!
