This morning at 11:00 am EST, out of the blue, I suddenly made my journey to Rainbow Bridge.
This morning wasn't unusual. I had my breakfast, got head scritches, and went out to the garage to do my morning manbox bathroom duties.
Around 20 minutes later I didn't feel right, I fell to the floor and cried out to Momma. Momma came running right away to see me lying there crying for her, and she ran out and scooped me up into her arms. I let out two more cries and then I was a kitty angel.
I saw you Momma, holding me close and tight and crying and I know you are sad, but just look at me now. I'm the big pawed over-sized eared kitten with a tiny body that needed to catch up that you fell in love with 13 years ago. I'm here with Koty and Blanca and Claire and Stovepipe and Echo and Icebox, and I'm going to be just fine.
You are going to be just fine too, Momma. In time. I love you.
Me iz so sad yoo had to leave us. Have yoo been sick or was this juss so sudden?
You'll have all yur fursibs & offur Angel furriends to guide, love & watch ova yoo.
We pray for yur Mommy at this most delicate time.
Luvvs & gentle ~huggs~
We luvvs yoo ♥Hawkeye♥ 4 -eva!

That's what we ask.
The truth is,
we may never
be able to know
for sure why.
But we do know
that there is no single
"should have done"
or "could have done"
or "did" or didn't do"
that would have changed that why.
All that love could do
A little story for you.....
Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads,
there lived a little water beetle in a community of water
beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond
with few disturbances and interruptions.
Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of
their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and
would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their
friend was dead, gone forever.
Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge
to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would
not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what
he had found at the top.
When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the
surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so
warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body
changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful
blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body
designed for flying.
So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole
new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never
Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking
by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and
explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been
before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.
But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could
not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he
understood that their time would come, when they, too, would
know what he now knew. So, he raised his wings and flew off
into his joyous new life!
Take Wings and Fly Hawkeye
Why are so many kitties going to the bridge this summer? Especially this month?! I'm so sorry for your loss. Sweet Hawkeye, please know I'm here for you to show you around the bridge if you need an escort. I too left my momma suddenly, just not that quickly. Any way we leave them, it's just not easy or fair.
I'm sorry you've made your journey up here to the bridge, Hawkeye, but all your angel pals are gonna keep you company until you see your family again one day. Come on, let me show you around the place!
Bye-bye, Hawkeye! Rest in Peace! *wipes eye with paw*
This is every momma's worst nightmare and I'm speechless just reading about it. I'm SO sorry this happened to you, and I wish it had been different. You have love & purrayers coming from all of us, just try to feel & harness it for now. Luv, Tink
Oh Hawkeye and Mom
I am so sad to hear this news and am sending many prayers and hugs for you!
So sorry for your loss. Wish it wasn't so sudden.
You and your Mom and family is in our purrayers. Again, I'm so sorry.
I will be here for you Hawkeye..My mommy is so sad you had to go...
Aw, dang it, Hawk... I am missing you already. You know you are right there on the A-list of my pals. I'm so sorry you had to leave so soon, but I'm relieved that you didn't suffer long.
You and your family were so lucky to have shared your lives.
I look forward to the day we will see each other again.
I'm so sorry Hawkeye, you've come here too soon. I heard the news from Alex (Sweet Angel Girl).
This is so scary to read about; I hope this is very rare. I'd like to send hugs to your Mom. I know she will be sad for awhile; but you are right when you say Momma is going to be fine, in time.
My Dad knows about how it takes time. But every day, I am with him. He thinks about me, and I am right there.I can now be with him, not just in the house anymore, but now I can be with him in the car, on a train, in another city, in the office, Everywhere!
I hope your Momma feels comfort soon. And here at the Bridge, Hawkeye, we can chase mice with great vigor and have catnip whenever we like, and take catnaps whenever we want.
Love Georgina xo
Oh, Jan, my meowmy knows how your heart is aching right now. I'll sprinkle her with angel dust to ease her heart, and soon, you'll be able to fly to her and sprinkle her with your own angel dust, Hawkeye. I'm anxious to meet you and help show you around the Meadow here on the other side of the Bridge. It's beautiful here, we're all healthy and young and we're waiting in this beautiful, joyful place to see our humans again!
We're sending many purrs to your family, Hawkeye. I'm sorry you had to make your journey so abruptly, but I'm glad your Meowmy was there to hold you. Be at ease at the Bridge and give our best to all the angels there. We will see you again.
Your "story" is so sad. As many have said, it is all our worst nightmare. My heart aches for you. I don't know what else to say. We all just love our little ones so very much.
so very very sorry to hear about Hawkeye. I am glad that you were with him when he left, but that is so scary too. He will be watching over you & a new guardian angel has been born to sit on your shoulder. May you have peace.
We are very sorry to hear you left for the Bridge. Purrs to your family at this sad time.
