Arrival Story:
After the tragic death of one of our cats, we had to go to the Humane Society to look for someone to fill the void. They happened to be having a special "2 for 1" deal on cats. Velvet stood out to us immediately because all she did was talk, talk, talk. We took her home that night, and went back the next day and got Joy.

Full name: Velvet Rose. Best friend: Chrissy (deceased). Astrological sign: Aries. Favorite NFL team: Carolina Panthers. Instruments played: Clarinet. Voted: Most talkative. She's also called Cleopatra Burmese Queen, due to her tendency to be a bit of a bully to the other cats. She and our old dog, Chrissy, were best friends. She loooooves other dogs! Cats, though, are off her radar.

Christmas Presence

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of my big move to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss being with my family, especially this time of year, and letting them keep me warm on their laps. They did so love to warm my chilly little feet! I could always be counted on to purr for them and cheer them up if they got a case of winter blues. The tree looks nice in the living room, and I wish I could be there to sleep underneath it, next to my favorite heat vent. But at the same time, I love living someplace where I'm forever young and healthy. I can still be with my family in spirit. On Tuesday, I'll be giving the gift of my presence for the holidays. And there's no better gift than me! :)


Back So Soon?

I had a nice surprise the other day: my brother Charlie showed up here on the bridge! I couldn't believe how quickly he got here. Seeing him again made me feel happy, but then I felt sad because it made me realize my family had just suffered another devastating loss on earth. It was just 2 and a half months after I shed my earthly form to become an immortal bridge dweller. My family was talking today about how many of us fur babies have passed on in such a short time. They still can't quite comprehend me being gone, and now Charlie has deprived them of his company, too. I kinda feel guilty getting to spend so much time with him when I know people down there still needed him. But I'm glad to have his company again. When the time comes, I'll gladly share it with everyone in my family!


I'll be Home for Christmas

My friends, as of this afternoon, I have left this earth and returned home to the rainbow bridge. I've been in good spirits lately, despite being ghastly thin and dehydrated, but during the last couple of days I saw a swift decline. I stopped eating and drinking, and didn't do much but lay around trying to get warm (my paws were ice cold). Then this morning I was hardly moving at all and even appeared to have died. My mommy knelt down by the heating vent where I was laying (as I am wont to do, especially on cold days like today) and tried to get a response out of me. I was cold, my eyes were glazed over, and I didn't seem to be breathing at all. I also smelled kinda rotten, like death. She felt me for a heart beat and called my name. Finally, she felt my heart flutter and I started breathing again. So, she covered me with a blanket and said she'd check on me soon. A few minutes later, April tried talking to me and I even lifted my head up and adjusted my arms a little. My breathing was very shallow and labored, though. At noon, my daddy came home and saw that I was gone. We kind of suspected I wouldn't make it to Christmas this year. I'm sad that I won't be there to celebrate it, but I'm glad to finally be home and no longer sick.
Actually, today was actually a very good day for me to go because it's Chrissy's birthday. She and I were the best of friends! We always napped together, and I would clean her face and muzzle like a caring little mother. I haven't seen her in 4 years so I'm so glad I got to give her such a nice birthday gift! Me coming home to see her after all these years! Plus, it's the first day of winter and we all know how intolerant of cold weather I am. Oh, and I've really been looking forward to chatting with Peggy again! So, there's a silver lining to my passing. I'm just sad to leave behind all my earthly friends and family, even though I know I'll see them again someday. Until then, long live the (Burmese) Queen!
