Arrival Story:
My sister got him at 10 weeks old from a co-worker & she could only keep him outside. She decided that I should take him home. My niece was 8 at the time & colored a picture for me & "Ginnger", the two n's stuck!

Bio:
In 2004 I had Idiopathic Vestibular Disease, but I'm ok now. Scared my momma to death! She thought I was having a stroke. I couldn't stand up or walk very well and it came on all of a sudden. Momma & daddy took me right to the vet. Momma held me in her arms in the car & I didn't make a peep. She knew something was up, I'm never quiet in the car & she can never just hold me. The vet said it was Vestibular Disease. It's kind of like vertigo in kitties. They gave me meds to take to keep me quiet & told momma & daddy to keep me quiet in a room where I can't hurt myself. When I would jump out of the litter box, I would fall down so they knew I had to stay in the room. I had to stay there for at least two weeks. Momma felt bad 'cause she couldn't do anything for me, but knew I was safer staying in the room. When I first got the disease, I had a head tilt that they said could be permanent or could go away. Momma said that would be ok (she thought it was cute) and as long as I got better, we could live with a head tilt. I haven't had any symptoms since I first got it, but momma watches me. From time to time she sees my head tilt & wonders if it's from the disease. I sure hope I don't get dizzy like that again. I didn't like that. Plus, I had to stay in that room by myself. ********************************** *** Ginngie was diagnosed with cancer on 7/27/09 and given two weeks to live (the biopsy came back as pancreatic). He fought long & hard to beat this thing. Sadly, on May 7th, 2010, we had to let Ginngie go. The tumor he had, had grown significantly and he no longer wanted to eat. We had 9 extra months with him that we didn't think we would have. My sweet boy of 17 years, I miss you so much!

When it was my time, there was such an outpouring of love, like no other time. I want to share with you some of the notes I received from others. I would just share the poems & sayings, but I want to give everyone credit...so I included their entire message.

************************************************ ****************

Dear Ginngie,
Mommie wanted me to send you a copy of my poem. (We call it my poem, because she put it on my page. I didn't write it!) I am sure you and your Mom and Dad will appreciate what it says, although I want to warn you that it may make your humans eyes leak, so they might want to be careful about when they read it. Anyway, here it is:

How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in your memory and so very slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laugher and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.
~~ Constance Jenkins~~

Remember, it is the gift that is hardest for them to give us, but the one that ultimately shows how much they love us.
Now, my friend, please stop by my house when you get a chance. Kate and the kits have been making tons of catnip cookies. They're the best! Purrrs, BeeJay

************************************************** *************

Ginngie & Momma,
We are so saddened by this news and now that my momma has stopped crying hysterically she can help me write this message.

Ginngie, even though we knew this day would come, we have cherished every moment we've been able to spend together. Like I told you before, I am honored to share my birthday with you and every birthday I have, I will always put my paws together and say a special birthday message just to you.

I know how difficult this must be fur your mom, I remember when Tiger went to the Bridge how sad mom was. We are sending all our love and purrs to you and your mom, dad, Maggie, Rudy, Chip and Romeo. You will have to grab the wings we sent you so you can come back and let them know that you are okay and will always watch over them.

We feel like we lost a member of our furmily too, as all of you are our furmily. Please come by us too, we'd like to know that you are okay.

We will always cherish our memories together. Momma says that we leave pawprints on our furmilies hearts and that we always live on in their hearts. It is true.

Sad and loving purrs,
Bella and furmily

I am very said to hear of your news of you being on your way to the bridge. I hope your mommy and daddy will be ok..you will all be together again one day. I am thinking of you..with love.

***************************************** ***********************

Hi Ginnger and family we are happy to be your new friends and sad to learn that you did make the journey today to the bridge....We know your family is very sad, we are purring for them and you....

I am fighting cancer too and I don't know how long I have, I first had mammery cancer and survived that, but knew that there was a good possibility that the tumors would attack my lungs and we found out in February that indeed they did...

Mom is so sad and doesn't understand why so many cats are getting cancer and dying form it...it is so hard to believe...and she wants to find out what research if any is being done.....

God Bless you all and god speed my new friend...you are a handsome angel now watch over your family.....sending our love too.

QT and family

My deepest sympathies for your loss.

******************************************************** ********

Liz, I'm very sorry to hear that you have lost your beautiful Ginnger. It is so hard when you know you have to say goodbye because it is better for your baby, but at the same time you just really want to hold on tight and keep them with you. Ginnger is better now--no more pain or suffering. He will miss you as you miss him, but he will still be there in spirit. Hold on to the love that you shared for so long and it will comfort you.

Hugs,
Kat Lentz & the Zoo Crew
(Mom to Mystie May, the black kitty you brought up from Debbie Bay last year.)

Purrs & Prayers

Greg & Kitties


I know God has taken you home. I'm just someone that's taken care of you," "It's hard to believe that you're gone. But you're in a more peaceful place than here. I'll see you when I can. Wait for me at the gates of heaven."


How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in your memory and so very slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laugher and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.

A Cat's Prayer

To Those Who Love & Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go-
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown.
But now it is time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It is only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart,
I will not be far away, for life goes on,
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can not see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".




Goodbye

With heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyes
after all these years; we must say goodbye
Please understand; we've done all we could
if there was anything we could do; you know we would

I'm sitting right here; gently rub your ears
while I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave us; we'll never forget
especially the ones; of the day we all met

One last hug; and one last kiss
you have no idea; how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes; this one last time
you tell me it's ok; you know it's your time

Close your eyes now; and go to sleep
we'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keep
Go in peace now; our good friend
we'll stay right here with you; until the end

Dream of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fine
We'll run and play; side by side
with a soft warm feeling; deep down inside

Your memory will live on; in each one of us
you'll always be number 1; to all of us
Have a safe journey; through the night
I promise when you awake; you'll be in God's light

So with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyes
just for now my friend; we say goodbye

John Quealy

I sure hope all these kitties don't mind me posting their notes, but it meant so much to us the outpouring of love that we've received.
Momma couldn't read some of these and today being my one week anniversary, I'm not sure she can read some of the poems yet.

I just wanted to share what wonderful messages I have received.

Thank you all!!!

 

Thank you SO much!

Where do I start. I have felt so much love & support ever since I first got sick...but wow, the gifts this week have been a bit overwhelming.
Now, momma usually insists that we send individual thank yous when we receive gifts, rosettes, etc. But, I'm going to take the somewhat easy way out this time.

After I went to the vet last week I got lots of gifts with purrs just for that.
Thank you to:
Natasha & Buddie for the Catmail
Buddie for the Blue Ribbon
OWP for the lemonade
Simon & Reuben, Nala Sue, Hooch, Ciao Li & Calvin (and their families) for the Power of the Paw Charm
Ginger, Big Harry, Stinker, Tigger & Toni (and their families) for the Heart
Baby & family for the Candle
Misha for the Rainbow

Then came the time that I went to the Bridge...
I got Catmail from Paisan, BeeJay, Bella, Phoebe, Queen Tallulah, Buddie, Noodles, Cesar, Mi Ping Lentz & Mr. Jeepers. In 3 special Pawmails I got a beautiful memory picture from Wyatt James and beautiful wings from Calvin & KC. Thank you all VERY much for those. They are so beautiful!

I also want to thank the following kitties & their families for these wonderful gifts:
For the Star of an Angel ~ Aedan, BeeJay, Calvin, Wilson J Scooter, Mr. Pink, TweeKee, Hooch, Aldo, Ciao Li, Tabby, Bella & Tally, Angel Missy, Ele, Aragorn, Macallan, Baby, Tilda, Smitten, George, Leo, Elie, Penny, The Olde Furts, Andre, Scooter, Flowie, Alfie, Pooters, Angel, & Angel Amelia

Now ~ I hope that I didn't miss anyone. We tried really hard to keep track of all of these as we got them. We thank you all and your entire families. Your caring pawrents have been so thoughtful and so supportive to my momma & daddy. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Purrs & hugs, Ginngie

 

Did this really happen?

One minute I was laying on Momma's lap, daddy was there, my favorite vet tech Alicia was there & Dr. Johnstone. The next minute I saw this beautiful rainbow, then a meadow...and hey, there's Sparky! How'd he....oh, nevermind. He didn't go anywhere, I did.
But, I didn't want to leave momma. I didn't want to leave anyone, this isn't fair. I know that I'm healthy again and that nasty tumor is gone.

Wow, look at all these kitties & doggies...and Spazzie...hey little buddy, I see you made friends with some other guinea pigs. Oh, Sweetie, I'm sorry we didn't get to meet on earth, sis. And there's Calvin with his welcome sign! Thank you for the welcome everyone. This is amazing.

This place is so beautiful, but wait, *looks back* momma & daddy are so sad. How can I tell them that I'm ok? I know that they did everything they could for me & I had an extra 9 months with them that they thought they wouldn't have. But, I was so tired. I fought as hard as I could for as long as I could. I was trying to tell momma. All Thursday night and most of the day Friday I laid on her lap. I loved laying on her lap. I just wish I would've done that the first 15 years of my life. But I sure made up for the last 2 years. Especially on Friday.

I would've written sooner but I was getting accustomed to being here at the Bridge & momma just wasn't up to it. She finally was able to change my picture to my show off my beautiful wings. Thank you KC for my wings. I also got wings from Calvin. I will be changing back & forth because I love them both so much.
And thank you to Pie's family for the beautiful tribute picture that all my siblings have on their page. Also, Wyatt James made me a beautiful tribute picture with the lyrics from a Brad Paisley song. I also have a picture that many of my friends & Tommy's friends made of the two of us since we came here just days apart. Thank you to all who made these & to all who have put them on their pages.

I got so many gifts, stars, wings, rosettes from when I went to the vet last week to when I came here to the Bridge. Momma always likes us all to send individual thank yous for our gifts, but I'm not sure that is possible this time. I will write a separate diary for that...at least one.

My dear furiend Smokey & my furiend little Tommy also came to the Bridge recently. I think we will all be exploring together and learning how to tell our families that we are ok.

I want to thank everyone for giving us all the support, purrs & love during my illness and for all that you've done for my momma & daddy here and on Facebook since I've come to the Bridge. I also want to thank my furiends in Nascar Cat for the donations they want to make in my name to my vet to help other kitties & doggies. I love you guys (& girls)!

purrs & hugs, Ginngie
