Arrival Story:
Born into our household. Son of Baileys and Petie (both Rainbow Bridge) and father to JJ, Kahlua, and Lucky (rainbow Bridge), grandfather to Jazzpurr, Cashmere and Molly. He used to give human hugs whenever his meowmy picked him up - put one paw down her cleavage, cuddle in, and pat her on the back with his other paw.

Jethro is the one great kitty love of my life - truly my feline soulmate. What had happened to him was a mystery for quite some time, but we are now aware that he actually did go to the bridge on May 10, 1998. We will always and forever miss and love him.

A little over a month ago, my son in law, Fred's cousin Rose came to the bridge. My daughter, Lucky had a welcome pawty for her, and it was absolutely love at first site. I have been one smitten kitten for the past month. Today, at the double wedding of Abbitibby and Trevor, and Grizzabella and Flannery, I gave Rose a ring and asked her to marry me. SHE SAID YES! I am the happiest kitty at the bridge! I am engaged to the most beautiful kitty I have ever seen...


Letter from Mommy

My dearest Jethro,

10 years ago today you left me - you probably jumped out of the window which should never have been left open in the first place (stupid ex-mother-in-law) probably looking for me because you were my feline soulmate.

I miss you every day, and I love you now as much as I ever did - from the moment you were born. You were stillborn, and your brother was born severely deformed and had to immediately be put down. Since your mommy had to have a hysterectomy, a vet tech decided to see if she could revive you - and there you were. That first night of your life was when you and I bonded, as I walked the floor with you all night because your mommy had a c-section and was really out of it, and did not realize that she had a kitten. Every 20 minutes that night, we trapped Baileys, pinned her down, and plugged you in. Once you were old enough, you never left my side. If I was sitting down, you were in my lap. The night you left, I fought with my ex to not go to dinner at a friend's house - I begged to stay home - it was as if I knew that I should not leave, but he made me go, and we got home so very late, that I didn't realize that you were gone until the next morning when I woke up without you. I looked for you for months, years even...I posted signs, posted your picture at every vets office within 20 miles and checked the shelters and animal control, daily.

10 years, my beloved...and life still isn't the same without you.




Will we ever heal?

Okay - sometimes my mom feels ridiculous about still crying for me 10 years after I disappeared. Is this normal? Is this obsessive? I know that I was her feline soulmate, and that it was completely wrong for me to disappear like that. Since I had brain damage, I wasn't smart enough to make it home by myself...which just hurt mom even more...but 10 years? Does the pain ever end? Will she ever stop crying for me?
