My family is celebrating me with love and sunshine in their hearts on my 6th year bridge anniversary. Can you believe it has already been six years since I became an angel? Mommy says I took a piece of her heart with me which can never be replaced.....I get that....as I was and always will be her "soul kitty." Sweet Ivy Joy, thank you for being the princess of her heart.....she loves you so and needs you.
In the past few years, my other earth family siblings have joined me at the Rainbow Bridge and we are together once again....Sissy-Golden Angel and CK Angel are here with me, little Blackie, too (one of our ferals)....and now Big Blackie....there is also all the other angels from our family and the angels from our friends. OMC...The Rainbow Bridge is a beautiful place....so peaceful and so all comforting. I know earning my wings was so hard on my family, especially my mommy....but I see her smile now as she thinks of all of us and she knows.....angels surround her with love and that our hearts will always be connected by paws.
I am so very grateful, Ivy Joy, Luna Rose, and most recently, Honey Bun, have come into their lives....They have some big shoes to fill and are doing a wonderful job....Thank you Ivy Joy, Luna Rose, and Honey Bun for helping to heal my family's hearts. Great job conquering the potty traning Honey Bun!!! Keep working on the fear issues.....we believe you will get there!!! I was so afraid in the beginning too....but love eventually melts all that away....and joy replaces all fears.
Reflecting on that day...six years ago, I grew so very ill….I had struggled off and on for many years…but this day was different. Mommy knew it was time to let me go and peacefully send me to the bridge.
So on October 27, 2008, I spread my wings followed the sun…and made my journey to a place of beauty and peace. There are no words to express the pain and emotions of that day...my final moments on earth...and the overwhelming peace of the journey to the sunlight of the bridge. It will be forever with my family, but now, they are able to think of me with smiles and joy...as I have always wanted for everyone. I am not gone, just glowing in a different way.
I never knew one kitty, me, could touch so many lives and hearts….but I learned I had….I now understand how my work as a angel is invaluable to others. I have spent the last six years spreading my sunshine wings and supporting others as they end their life’s journey and come to the bridge…I work along side all the beautiful angels here at the bridge to bring peace and comfort to all. Mommy says I did that on earth, too. I guess what she says makes more sense now. Mommy tells me, “My angels wear fur…” That is so very true....all her angles now wear fur. This past year I have helped so many close friends and family become angels...both fur and human....it is hard...and yet so right...does that make sense? I mean, how could we not help those others.
The comfort, support and love so freely given by each of you through this journey is an amazing gift. Thank you. Also, for all the time we have spent on Caster and Dogster, please know what each of you does never goes un-noticed or unappreciated by my family or me. We can never say thank you enough for sharing our lives and hearts and for making my journey and my family’s healing easier to handle. I know the healing has only began for the other losses they are expereincing...thier lives continue to be difficult and they continue to be be strong.
I am very pleased Facebook has kept many of us together as we are rebuilding our Catster/Dogster Community.....I am hoping our closeness will once again bloom where seeds are planted.
Of course, I will always miss being with my family….but know they are where they need to be for now. I will always miss the comfort of my mommy’s arms, and the play times with Dad, but as an angel, I get to stay close and share in special moments in a different way.
Also, I will always miss each of you and the times shared, but I hope you know as an angel...I am always there. I find comfort in knowing, I have become the Catster/Dogster Sunshine Angel….as I have always worked to bring sunshine and peace to all. I realistically know as one little kitty angel, I can’t make a huge difference in the world; however, I do believe it is the small differences that count. If I can wrap my sunshine wings around one kitty, doggie, or human and make difference...my angel work has been successful.
October 27, 2008….I went to sleep and opened my eyes to the beauty of the bridge, the warmth of the sun and the heartache of being gone from my family. I know my family, especially mommy, misses me; however, I see her smile now when she thinks of me and feels the warmth of the sun on her face.
I thank each of you for all you are, and all you do……………and all you will become. I am blessed to have you for friends.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
I love you all and am so grateful we have had you to help us adjust to my new life as the Sunshine Angel. To all of you who have watched your special ones leave and go to the bridge, please do know....time will lessen the pain, but never the memory of what you shared together.
“Beyond The Rainbow
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart. “
~cg - 1995
I am smiling down on each of you……….always warming your hearts with sunshine and peace!
Our hearts are connected by paws.

July 27-28th is here...the day (night, close to midnight) I walked into my mommy's arms and heart 25years ago. Meow! I would have been 25 years old this year according to earth time; however, here at the rainbow bridge, age is no longer a factor. We are simply free to be...
I remember 6 years ago in July, we celebrated my birthday on Caster/Dogster all month long....I think we all knew in our hearts it would be my last birthday on earth. I thank you for that special gift....as it stays so vividly in my heart and mind. It was so incredibly special, not only to me, but my mommy, as well (and the rest of my family, too). Now that things have really slowed down on Catster/Dogster, I am even more grateful for the month long celebration. I must admit, I miss all the fun parties which used to be in abundance in Catster/Dogster Land. Funny how life changes and we move forward....sometimes on the same path and sometimes not...makes our life expereinces even more special!
My first got'cha day at the bridge was the hardest on mommy's heart (and mine) and this one is going to be bittersweet. I really love all my angel friends, but do miss my family so much. I guess the special occasions, holidays, etc...are the hardest times...hum, maybe not...as I know I often lay in the sun with the endless beauty of the bridge around me, dreaming of laying in my mommy's arms...just one more time. I know my mommy does the same. Once you have touched someone's life and heart completely, you do truly long for just one more touch, one more hug....one more moment together. My family has really had a tough year and I know my mommy finds strength from me....as I send it to her for the bridge. I will always be her sunshine angel...
If I had my wish for the best got'cha gift ever, I would still be on earth with my family....however, they gave me the greatest gift already by letting me go when my heart and body was tired. I can hardly believe it has been almost 6 years since I left. I went to the bridge on Oct. 27, 2008. Amazing how at times it feels just like yesterday....and other times not. Mommy and daddy have found peace with it and now they smile when they think of me....I love mommy's smile. I am ever so grateful Ivy joy, Luna Rose and Honey Bun are with them and being able to expereince a wonderful life full of love and happiness.
July 28th is also the bridge crossing of my love, Gavroche. He came to be with me on my got'cha day five years ago....we truly our angel soul mates. Hugs to your mommy as I know this is a difficult day for her.
I know this got'cha day will be a little sad for my family (and probably for some of you)....I watch over all of them every day and I know they are doing the best they can....but sometimes, I know they are thinking of me and wishing I was still with them. I can see it in my mommy's eyes....I know her so well. Not sure that feeling will ever go away....the hurt has gotten better. After all, we spent so many years together. I love it now seeing my mommy smile when she thinks of me....
I think of all of you so often....and keep you close in my heart. I also watch over you and send you rays of sunshine and happiness each day....purrs and healing sunshine when needed. I hope you feel me in your heart....as I am really not gone, just in a different place. Remember you are always in my heart....for we....are truly family....and I am your sunshine angel forever.
So as I prepare to celebrate my got'cha day at the Rainbow bridge soon, please take time to look to the sun and think of me...smile, give a kind gentle hug to someone, a gift of laughter....a piece of your heart...give a little piece of yourself to bring joy to another...do it in honor of my got'cha day....there is no greater gift than giving of yourself.
Thanks for supporting my family, especially as their journey continues to be somewhat difficult right now. The best got'cha gift you can give me is to live like there is no tomorrow and to love with all your heart.
Luna Rose and Honey Bun, thank you both for being such incredible parts of the family on earth...your bring them laughter!!!
I said, look to the sun.....
"When you face the sun, the shadows always fall behind you."
Thank you for changing my heart and life:

To my Catster and Dogster family!!
Wow, we are so full of love and gratitude for each of you...our lives are forever changed in such a special unique way because of all of you. When we joined the catster/dogster family, we never imagined we would meet such incredible pups and kitties (their humans, too) who would become our family. Your continued support, love, friendship and kindness is overwhelming...Thank you for being the best Holiday Gifts ever....we could ask for nothing more.
I really appreciate you being there for my family to continue to support them through another difficult year..it has been a really tough year for my family’s hearts. Recently more good friends came to the Bridge too and the sadness can be overwhelming….
Please remember to reach out and love each other through the difficult times…..and to laugh each other through the good…..
Sissy, Ck, and I are always watching over you….and we are pleased Ivy Joy and Luna Rose have brought so much joy into our family’s home…I think they were led by angels!!!
Thank you for welcoming our tiny new golden girl, Honey Bun, into your hearts.....she needed our family to survive.
Please remember to look to the sun and know I am always in your hearts.
" What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our souls...Our hearts are forever connected by paws.
Sunshine hugs of love, peace and joy.
