I'm sorry to have to tell you that I'm going to be riding the purple arch of the rainbow this afternoon. I've fought a good fight, but my body has given out. I decided yesterday that I no longer wanted to eat. All you angel cats know how hard it is to leave our families, but Mawmee and Daddy said that things will only get worse, and they want to spare me from any more pain.
I've had a good life with my family and friends. Who knew that a cat who lived in the woods chasing squirrels and birds would end up in a garage, and then in a house! Who knew that an outdoor cat would finally decide that living indoors was pretty pawsome! Who knew that I would meet the bestest friends in the whole wide world on Catster! Who knew that I would be the inspiration for The Cat in the Clover! I used to love running through the clover when Mawmee would work outside. Who knew that I would move across the country and become a cowboy cat!
I know they are going to miss me around here because I'm the talker of the family. I'm also the alarm clock for breakfast, so I'll have to tell Newman a few tricks to use.
I'll be making my journey at 3:00 this afternoon, so if you could remember me around that time, and say a few purrs that my journey is peaceful, I would appreciate it. I know Calvin will be right there with his Welcome sign, and I'll bet it will be purple! My BFFITWWW will be right next to him holding my heart basket. I can't wait to see her! Mawmee said when I make my journey, I'm going to be wrapped in the purple blanket that Rocky Ann gave me. I also know that I won't be alone because Spunky, Sugar, Rocky, and Autumn will be there to greet me too.
I wish I could stay long enough to celebrate my 13th birthday on July 4th, but you can bet I'll be having a big party with my angel pals, and when you see the fireworks that night, you can think of me.
Thank you for the fun, friendship, and laughter we have shared over the years. I will miss you all. And soon I'll be wearing bright purple wings . . . . . . .
My family will be purring for you and your family today. Mom says helping to free a beloved furry family member from pain is the hardest part of being a pet pawrent. My angel brother Garp will be waiting with your other angel friends to greet you at the Bridge, while purple lightening bugs fill the air with fireworks and scent of catnip in your honor.
May your journey be peaceful, may gentle paws greet you with loving purrs and woofs to drive away any fear. We will be purring for you at 3PM today, go gently into the rainbow light and be at peace.
Loving purrs to your mom and dad, we know their pain begins the moment yours ends.
Maggie, Aggie & Clawdius Meowximus
Oh Violet! We're all going to miss you. Sometimes our parents have to do what is best for us. You can bet mom and I will be thinking of you. Mom knows that Angel Hanna will be waiting for you with open paws! I think that purple wings will look fantastic on you. No worries. Have a safe journey. Fly free sweet Violet!
Until we meet again...
Hunter & mom, Kelly
Violet, we are so very sorry to hear this and so sorry for your awesome family. We know this will be so hard, but all your pals and your Bridge family will be here for you! Hugs to your Mawmee and Daddy and fursiblings.
Peaceful journey my friend. I know Calvin will be there waiting for you and you'll feel great again in no time. We're so sorry it's come to this but your family is so strong and loving. We'll miss you Violet.
Violet, I know Calvin has his sign all polished and everyone will be cheering as you come through the pearly gates. Sending beams of comfort to your pawsome family.
Violet, we will be sending healing purrs & angel dust to your family (not just your pawrents, 'cause I know your siblings will miss you too).
I will be one of the many there to greet you when you arrive.
purrs & hugs, Ginngie
and purrs & hugs from all of my family.
Violet, you ride that purple arch like no one's business!! We are very sad to hear the news and will be thinking of you as you make your journey to the bridge. You will be missed :( Say hi to your family at the bridge and big hugs to your mom and dad and furrry sibs. Ride the arch cowboy!
Catsy and I are mixing drinks in anticipation of your arrival, Violet. We are also sending healing angel dust to your loving family.
Oh, Violet, we're so sorry the time has come for your journey. Your family waiting on the other end of your journey will be happy to see you, though. We're purring for a peaceful journey for you and comfort for the family you leave behind for now.
Violet my friend, Alfie and I are helping Calvin and Rocky Ann paint! When you get here, you will see a sea of purple!
I am sorry you can't stay longer with your family. But your mom is wise to let you go and not let you suffer.
Sending your family healing purrs.
Wally and Alfie
Violet, Dude, aw maaaaannnn! We're so sorry you have to leave, but we know your family and friends there will be happy to see you and welcome you to your next great adventure! We'll be purring your journey is peaceful and for comfort for pawsome family.
May your journey be peaceful, Violet, and may your days be full of clover with the clowder in the clouds. If I ever get purple rain on my head, I'll know who sent it. Purrs and love.
Violet, Oh Violet...We are so sorry that today you leave to the Bridge. Of course you will be welcomed with loads of friends and all of your favorite things. But your mom will hurt, and we will hurt, in missing you. God Speed, dear Violet. Anne and McG and Toulouse and Sophie and Elsa Angel.
Oh Violet! You has been such a good furrriend to my furmily on the earths. You and your whole furmily. It is so sad to watch from the Bridge, all the heartaches that your jourhney is causing, but I will be here to welcome you with my paws wide open, and all your furmily and friends here too!
Lots of love to your mawmeeee and pap and furmily
We, too feel sad.
May the clover always be purple as well as the daisies, pansies and so many other pretty blooms at the RB. And aren't the flowers on nip purple? If not for you they will be.
Our angel furblings will surely be at the front of that welcoming crowd of kitty angels, and all of them will be holding garlands and maybe some boas of the brightest purple. You know of course that purple is reserved for royalty?
Sending a truckload of our biggest Meezer purrs to your furmily and esp to your Mawmee and DD at this difficult time.
We will always think if you when we see a purple arch in those beautiful rainbows that come to visit us occasionally.
Fly Free, Violet, and may your wings be strong and as purple as can be. ♥♥♥
And thank you for your friendship and that of your furmily with you...you were one of the first ones who befriended us when we were first here...
Pipo, Minko, & Furmily
Violet, my faveorite color of kitteh. Your mawmee and DD are inspirations to us all like you are! I hope your get comfort and peace on your journey to the bridge.

Meowmy's eyes are really leaking so she said I must write this. We are so deeply saddened to read this news. You know you have left such pawprints in so many hearts, including ours. Take care of your pawrents because they have so much love for you... that will never go away and you will see them again one day. We send our love to each of you.

Oh, Violet, I was so sad to get the code purple from you that it was time to go on your journey. We have had so much fun on catster together and am so grateful that we met and became Bestest Friends In The Whole Wide World. Until Catser little did you and I even know that could be possible. Especially with you being all the way in KY and me all the way in CA. But it happened. And I will be forever happy that it did.
Rainbow Bridge is everything they say it is Violet. It is beautiful. You will have no pain or worries here. And you will be with your Bestest Friend Furever and Ever. Plus your Angel Fursiblings and ALL your many Angel Friends.

Purrs to your family on this sad sad day
Silent purrs precious one! Look for my angel brother Murder! My mommy's prayers are with your family on this sad day!
I don't know when 3pm Arizona time is. Sounds as if you've had a fabulous life through and through.
Can a English kitty be excused? Being very unfashionably late. For that we do apologies.
Anyway, R.I.P, Violet. From across the pond. We wish you a very peaceful journey over the colorful rainbow.
Sweet dreams, my friend! Many purrrs coming first class to your Family from England.
Gentle hugs to you and your loving Family.

Oh sweet Violet you make me cry. I'm so sad you came here to the Bridge so soon and your lovely family is in my thoughts. You and I are a few of the boys named with a female name; therefore you are very special.

I am so sorry that your time came to make your journey. So young too, like I was. But I am here for you at the Bridge, dear furriend, to join in the welcoming. Your heart basket is full to the brim.
Tony, your high five paw was delivered to me by Violet!
Oh, it was so good to see Violet again. And what a handsome Angel he is. He is hungry at the Rainbow Bridge so we are making sure he has all he wants to eat. Lots of yummies.
Gotta go as it is really busy at the Rainbow Bridge with everyone welcoming Violet. It is like a huge reunion. I know we are all going to be up late into the night.
Just want his Mawmee and Daddy to know that he made it safely and peacefully. He doesn't remember a thing about his journey. But he will always remember his family.
Safe journey my friend. We know Calvin and all the other angels will make you feel right at home. Hugs and purrs to your family.
We are so sorry to hear that you had to make your journey to the bridge. Sending hugs and purrs to your family.
Dear Violet, we are so very sorry. You are going to be the best purple angel cat ever and I bet there'll be some squirrels and birdies to chase. You are one of the bestest Tabbies I know. I'm the talker in my family too. We'll miss you but I know we'll see you again one day.
We'll purr and pray for your family.
Hugs and gentle purrs,
