When It's Time To Say Goodbye

Meows Everyfur,

It's been a while since I have written a diary.

Meows hates to post anything that will make the humans sad or worried.

As some of mew know, I have been losing lots and lots of weight lately. I had my blood checked and all was good.

Meowmy tried giving me anything I liked to eat - from macaroni & cheese, to peanut butter, to chicken and ham. Sometimes I eat it - sometimes I don't - but I still eat my cat food. I look lik a scrawny red chicken now - but Elsa still thinks I am handsome.....sigh.....

I now have Kitty Alzheimers - I zone out a lot - I am really chasing rats in Grand Central Station with my love Elsa. When I ignored chicken the other night, and yet kept looking fur more - the humans realized how confused I am now.

I have not used the litter box in weeks, and now I even walk through the mushy poops and leave poopy paw prints from one end of the house to the other. Meowmy can now follow my prints to see where I am. I try to climb up the couch, and I fell off this morning and conked my little head.

Meowmy, Daddy and I talked this morning and we all agreed that the best thing fur me is to journey to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday.

I am not happy feeling this way - and they love me enough to let me go and be with all of my Angel Friends.

We all agreed that I would stay with them for one more weekend - so we could do yard time with the doggys, I could have all my favorite treats, and they could smother me in kisses and hugs.

I am so excited that I will be seeing my brother Jesse James, my doggy Muffie who raised me, my doggy Barney who washed me, my kitty brothers Conan, Sassafras and Willie who I grew up with.

Please do not be sad for me, I have lived a furry long and happy life! I have never been sick, and I have been very much loved by my pawrents and all my fur siblings.

Purrlease do not leave me rosies & presents - uses them for happy occasions like Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Know how much I treasure each and every one of your friendships - and hope we will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.

I love you all furry much!

Even saying "Farewell" is so hard.

You have some wise and loving parents though! For all your life they have gifted you with love and done what was best for you. This weekend is one last brave gift of love.

On Monday dear Maximillian, I as well as a whole host of angels will be at the Bridge to greet you. Together we can sprinkle cloud dust over your family to dry their tears and help them see you as glorious and radiant as you will be with us as an angel !

Soft purrs of love to you and your family.

I'm sad to hear you're leaving the peanut butter jar behind.
I share your love for the stuff.
I hear there's peanut butter vats in heaven so you'll be diving in and getting your tummy full.

Thanks for not keeping Jasper and Jillian and sending them onto me. I figure Lakoda was a fair exchange.

Sending lottsa purrs for you and your Pawrents this weekend. Have a wondeful time in your yard soaking up the sun.

Wishing you the gentlest journey possible, dear friend. I will miss you, but I know we'll meet again someday, and we'll yowl together all night long, with no one to lock us out of the bedroom!

We're all sending many purrs of comfort to your wise and loving parents. May you have a beautiful weekend with them.

**Simon reads over his mommy's shoulder... Maxie is coming to join him at the Bridge! He starts preparing, having the baby angels sweep the clouds and put up party lights. Simon draws a map to the Catnip Fields and the Cream Streams... He passes on the word so that by Monday, efurry angel will be at the gates, waiting to celebrate Maxie's Arrival... It is going to be one AMAZING pawty... Simon runs off to find the MASTER pawty planner, Isaac...**

We all love you, Maxie. And we love your furmily. Enjoy your weekend, surrounded by all the love a kitty could want. Soon, you will be healthy again...

Simon and all the New Mexicats and New Mexidogs and that human too...

Oh Maxie! It's hard not to be sad. But, I've heard my mom and knew that this was coming. I think your parents are very brave to give you this final gift. I wish you one last pawsome weekend with your family. I hope it's a very special one as I know it will be. My Bridge sibs, Lacey and Cagney and their kits and hubbies are all preparing things at the Bridge with the others. I know you will be greeted with so many open paws. It's going to be one heck of a party. We all love you, Maxie!
Purrs and hugs,

So sorry to hear of all you've had to endure, but you're a strong kitty with a strong furmily who wants only the best for you.

Barney and Einstein and all the other kitties who have passed before you will be waiting for you at the Bridge. There's so much to do and see here. And it's even more fun knowing you can do it all in a healthy body and mind!

Mommy will remain on the earthly plain and is home for a while this season if your Mommy needs someone to talk to...
