Arrival Story:
One day in 1997 I saw a photograph of five kittens that had that Maine Coon look. Underneath the photo it said "free kittens, all boys and below that was a phone number. This photo was attached to a bulletin board outside a grocery store in Solomon's Island, MD. I called the number and went to pick up Sampson (who I named after his dad. I just added the "Silver Dollar" part to it because he had a little bit of silver cast to his fur. The owner told me his dad was silver, longhaired and big. He hid the whole time I was there. I did get to see baby Sampson's mommy who was a tiny shorthair named Skimpy. She looked like a kitten herself.

Sampson or Sampy or Pooter is the most affectionate cat I have ever owned. He loves giving me sandpaper licks, especially in my hair or on my chin. When I sit down at the computer, he always wants on be on my lap and starts in with his kneading and drooling and licking and purring. Every night he sleeps with me behind my knees. He loves to play fetch and he initiates the game by bringing me toy mice or pom-pom balls. Sometimes at night he brings me mice or balls and I find them on the bedroom floor in the morning whereas they weren't there the night before. When Bentley passed away Sampson became more and more effectionate. It was like he was glued to me. I had to get him a playmate and I did so in June of 2005. His name is Bailey Gray Cloud and he will be entered also in Catster as one of my cats.

Another year has gone by since my first year at the Bridge.

I'm doing fine and feeling great; no more heart and thyroid meds, no more needles and pain meds. What a relief! And to top it off, I get to be with my best bud in the whole world, angel Bentley! Of course, Camille Rose, Jasmine Bibette, Max and Isis are here along with many Catster friends who have made their journeys recently and in the past.

I notice that I've received some awesome gifts as follows:

Hearts: Angel Rebby & Family; Mac & Ivy; rainbow: Smiley Cassanova; cupcakes: Milo & Mallee; Angel Sonny Bono & Family; cake: Rizza; hugging kitty: Walker & Family.

Thank you all for your lovely birthday gifts!! It means a lot to me!

Lastly, Bailey had a birthday on April 2nd and will get to his diary tomorrow. He's been busy and Mommy has this awful cough. She sounds like a dog when she coughs.

Anyway, I must go now. There's a party at the Angel Inn.

Purrs & Breeps,

Yesterday, I would have turned 18 years old had I been still on earth. I made my journey on September 12, 2014 (almost exactly two years after my sis, Camille Rose passed on). We are together and in the greatest health. She was the oldest living cat Mommy ever had (20 years).

At the Bridge, we had a huge celebration for my birthday. Salmon, chicken, and loads of catnip were the highlights of this party.

A few days before my birthday, the Bridge got another angel named KARMA KITTY. She had complications with an URI from which she never recovered. We send loads of prayers and love to her Mommy and family. She was also a Catster friend. There have been many kitties and doggies who journeyed last year and this year. So sad for their surviving families and we send prayers to them also.

I notice that I received many lovely gifts. Thank you my friends as follows:

1. CALLIE ROSE - pawsome pawmail;
2. BIG HARRY & Family - vase of flowers;
3. ELSA - vase of flowers
4. HOMER & KIBBLES - hugs;
5. MAC & IVY - hugs;
6. REBBY - bluebird;
7. PLATELICKER - bluebird;
8. HAZEL LUCY - baseball;
9. MILO BLUE EYES & Family - heart;

Again, thank you so much, my dear friends!

Also, we're still waiting for things to get repaired in Catsterland. Mommy loaded up my birthday pic but can't move it forward because an army of Catster fleas block her way. It's sad. Prayers that these fleas get exterminated soon.

Lastly, Bail had a birthday last week. He'll be doing his Diary late some time this week.

Angelic Purrs & Breeps,

Last evening CHAI, one of our family's great friends, made her journey to the Bridge. Now, she's a lovely angel with blue wings to match her blue eyes.

Her sister SUGAR,who made her journey earlier last year, welcomed her with all angels who have crossed over last year and years before. I was one of them.

All of us are enjoying our 10th life as angels. As you know, I made my journey two years after Camille Rose did in September. Mine was September 12, 2014 and her's was September 14, 2014.

This year and last year have been sad for all our human parents as they had to say their goodbyes. I went on my own as did Isis and Jasmine Bibette. Camille Rose passed after dental surgery and the others had to be given the final gifts of love as they were so sick that they could not eat; Bentley and Max.

Be assured that Chai and all angels and pain free and young again. We romp and play and, of course, fly. Food and water are plentiful and the fields are filled with flowers of all colors. Whatever food we so desire appears before us with a blink of the eye.

I peek in at Mommy and my sibs often. I see them and they see me. I've seen Mommy look at them when they stare into space. Of course, that's when they see my spirit. I know Mommy feels my presence at times though she's never actually seen me. She made a video of Joss last year not too long after I passed, and a white wispy form drifted behind Joss when she stood in the hallway. The video is on FB and some of her friends saw it too. No one could explain what it was. Mommy thinks it was me and then again it could have been a reflection of car headlights shining through the window behind her. I know it was me.

Anyway, we are now awaiting the new Catster platform which is scheduled for this spring. I can't wait as Mommy took a lot of pics of me and my sibs and can't move them to the front. We can do diaries but no one can comment on them even though they can see them. There are no diaries of the day and that has been on a long hiatus (I guess that's the proper word) and the Diary Gal has been laid off until the new flea free platform is up and running.

Well, that's about it. I close with angelic purrs for Chai's family and ours and others during these sad days on earth

Purrs & Breeps,
