Hello kitties! I am one day into my tenth life at the Bridge. I was ready to leave a few weeks ago, but I fought hard to give my Mommy time to adjust to my leaving. We spent the last few weeks cuddling on the couch and watching our favorite shows. One of my favorite shows is a really old one called Highway to Heaven. It's about a man named Jonathan (Mommy calls him Pa for some reason) who is an angel sent to earth to help humans. I really identified with his character for some reason. Maybe it's because I was sent from heaven to help Mommy many years ago, right after she lost her beloved Abby. Or maybe it's because I am an angel now. Hey, I wonder if Pa lives here! I will have to look him up.
I spent every night I could sleeping on top of Mommy as always, but there were some nights I needed to sleep alone. Sometimes when you don't feel well, you just don't want someone all over you, you know? Also, I needed Mommy to get used to it gradually. When I felt she was ready and when my illness became too much, I stopped eating. I went from 8 to 7 pounds in one week. I had stopped eating before, but this time I did not start again. The doctor stole some of my blood on Thursday, and he said I was very, very sick. On my last day at home, yesterday, Butters joined me in the heated bed with his body pressed against mine to keep me warm. He never did that before, but I guess he knew I needed a little help.
I am disappointed that I could not stay with Mommy long enough to watch Season 2 of Dallas. Maybe I will ask Calvin if I can get a cloud with a tv so I can watch with Mommy from here. Of course, I miss my Daddy too. He always had the tough jobs like putting pills and needles in me, but I loved him so very much. Every Saturday during football season, he would make shrimp and watch football, and I used to eat the shrimps and watch with him all day.
I haven't gotten my wings yet, but I heard from other angels here that Gilmore really stepped up last night and slept next to Mommy in the bed for the first time. Boy, was she surprised to wake up and find him there! Hee-hee. Then today, I heard Cas was on the couch with Mommy and Daddy. You know, I was thinking maybe Mommy and Daddy should look for an external candidate to fill the vacant role of Top Cat, but now I think that maybe it will take more than one kitty to fill my giant paws. Maybe Gilmore and Cas can get the job done if they work together.
Well, I need to get back to angel orientation. Thank you to all the kitties and families that have been so supportive to me and my family.

I didn't realize you were here Mouse, let me know if you need any help finding anything. You're a good kitty to let your mommy adjust before you left. I left very suddenly and mommy was in shock. Come and let's have some catnip tea!
Mouse, no one fur can take yer place. Maybe youse right & Gilmore & Cas can fill in.
You take care & sumday you & yer mommy gonna be tagether 'gain (but not fur long time, ok?).
I thought that was so sweet of Butters to curl up with you in your bed. Butters must have known, many purrs from our family.
Mom has tears of sadness for your mom and dad, but she knows that you are all well now and will begin your flying lessons soon. It will certainly take both Cas and Gilmore to feel your paws, but they'll do their best. Hazel Lucy told me that you have a special crown that says "Mouse, Healer of Hearts" on it. That's pawsome! You can shoot beams of love to your folks to help them. You are their Guardian Angel now.
We love you Mouse and we send purrs to your momma. We know how hard it is to lose a beloved furbaby.
Glad that Gilmore and Cas are stepping up!
Aww Mouse I'm happy you are enjoying your angel orientation and I'm sure Calvin will hook you up wif a Tee Veee! Hazel Lucy will will help you toos..
You bet we're gonna all watch Dallas together, Mouse! We've been talking about last seasons, so we can't wait to have you join the group. You're gonna be a pawsome guardian angel cause even though there might be two cats that step up to be H.o.H., no one can really fill your paws! Come on, I've got a lot to show you up here!
Sad for you Mom & Dad, we know how hard it is to not have you there with them, but we gain a pawtastic new angle! Your parents our in all of our thoughts & prayers. You are a handsome angel now watching over your family.
Angels hugs and love
Sending purrs of love of comfort to your family.
We know you have lots of friends to greet you at the Bridge.
Now that you got your wings, you are a sweet guardian angel. You are now in full charge of watching over your family and taking care of them. Yes, you can join in with us doing our angel business. You can visit your family and watch television with them. Your family will always love you and remember your ways of doing things. They are sad now but tell them that you are able to do everything that you want to do. It will take them time to recover as mine still miss me. My mom keeps a special place on her pillow for me...We are never forgotten since we were so loved...
aww I just found out you were here with us angels giving your mom time to adjust was a great ideal I did that for mom too it is hard on them and after so many years together they weellll they feel a little lost when we first leave but there are lots of good paws there to help comfort your mom and dad in their time of sadness. we angel kitties are furever loved and we live on in their hearts until that day we re re-united with them here in heaven.
hugs and purrs to your family from all of mine
