I purchased Bentley from a pet store in 1991. He was the only boy in a litter of three (two sisters) and he was about three months old at that time. I thought he was a little too hairy to be a shorthair, (he was passed off as a domestic shorthair) and as he grew up he turned into one beautiful ball of fluff! He was a van-patterned brown tabby.
Bentley was my pride and joy, my show cat, my love. I miss him dearly. He passed away on May 23, 2005 of kidney failure. When he was alive and well, he was in many CFA shows and Household Pet Shows. He won many ribbons. A lot of them were first through third place. He was shown for ten years 1993 - 2003. He was also in the centerfold of Cat Fancy in 1993 in an article entitled "Oddly Marked Cats". He also appeared in Cat Fancy in another article entitled "How Cats Play" which I believe was during the same year. He also appeared in the anthologies of John Guevin's "Uncommon Cats" and "More Uncommon Cats" and in the Scratch Sheet" magazine of "The Maine Coon Breeder's and Fanciers Association" The article was entitled "Apparent Maine Coons". Also, I wrote a short story about him entitled "Bentley: An American Plume Tail" which appeared in the magazine "I Love Cats" in 1993. Yes, Bentley was my special cat . . . my celebrity! Words alone cannot convey how much I love and miss my dear Bentley. Now he is at the Rainbow Bridge along with my other dear cats which I will later add to this site: Jasmine Bibette, Max and Isis. I will also enter his friend who is still living, my 8-year-old Sampson (pictured getting an ear wash from Bentley). Bailey Gray Cloud, who is my newest fur baby and Bentley's replacement show cat, will also be entered in my cat family. Cammie will also be entered. My mom passed away and I got Cammie, who is a beautiful shorhaired tortie with white. My newest addition will be Merlin who is about three months old will be picked up this week. He is solid black. Lastly, today is Bentley's birthday, March 15th. If he was still alive he would have turned 15. I was thinking a lot of him today because of this. I still love and will always miss my pretty angel baby cat.

My oh my, another year has gone by! My earth birthday would be today and if I weren't at the Bridge, I would be 24 years old! Wow!
I noticed that I received some lovely gifts from my pawsome friends:
1. ANGEL REBBY & Family - four leaf clover;
2. GLEEK & Family - lovely heart;
3. SMILEY & LUIGI - four leaf clover; and
4. MILO & MALLE - four leave clover.
Thank you so purrty much!
Lastly, Sampy and I always hang together just like we did before our journeys. Of corse, so does Cam, Beeta and Isis. Even my older brother Max, who tried to teach me to be a good mouser in the past, hangs around us too. We all are pain free and enjoying our 10th lives.
Well, that's about it now. I got to fly back.

I'm sending angelic purrs and prayers for Catster to get well. I surely hope it'll work.

Yesterday was my birthday and if I were still on earth, I would have turned 23 years old.
As many may recall. I made my journey to the Bridge on May 23, 2005. Mommy gave me that gift as I was extremely ill from CRF ( chronic renal failure) which was irreversible.
I am now pain free and young again. Since I've been at the Bridge, every year there have been more Casters making the same journey. We all gather together and socialize and have many parties and picnics.
Lastly, I received several gifts, and I thank all of you for your kindness:
1. ANGEL REBBY and family - shamrock;
2. ANGEL HOOCH - heart;
3. ANGEL HAZEL LUCY- heart;
4. ANGEL SMOKEY JOE & Family- leprechaun hat;
5. ANGEL FELIX- shamrock.
Anyway, that's about it. I must be on my way.
Angelic Purrs & Breeps,
