As I watched over Meowm yesterday, I saw how much she was thinking of me. She was remembering our whole last day on earth together. You see, today is the 6th anniversary I went to Rainbow Bridge.
Meowm talked about me yesterday and she will again today. She does that quite often, to help Friday and Bijou remember me. The two younger girls never got a chance to meet me on earth, but they know who I am. Bailey gazes quite often into space and Meowm thinks she is looking at me!
Through the years picture making and poems have helped Meowm along. I wanted Meowm to put this one down this year. Friday had it on his page for years, one of the first ones we came across and it means so much.
Lend Me A Kitten
I will lend to you for a while a kitten, God said.
For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you and, should his stay be brief
you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want this kitten to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true.
And from the folk that crowd’s life's land I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take my kitten home again?
My heart replied, "My Lord, Thy Will Be Done"
For all the joys this kitten brings the risk of grief I'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness; we'll love him while we may.
And for the happiness we've known, forever-grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we planned.
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love we've managed your wishes to achieve.
Then in memory of him, who we loved, please help us while we grieve.
When our cherished kitten departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul for us to love all his life.
And that is what we do. We are forever precious furbabies and do send the next kitten to our pawrents.
Love is forever and memories are cherished.
This is Buddy's Meowm. I love you Buddy so much. You were and will always be the best. You will always be top cat in our furmily.
A gentle loving soul who loved everyone. A precious furchild who picked me.

Seventeen years ago today I brought you home from the Humane Society. There was quite a crowd of people around your cage when I got there to pick you up. It was a Saturday. I got there in the afternoon. Had to sleep first as I worked overnights then. I will always remember the look on this little boys face, his dad said to me, as I was reaching over to unlock the cage door, "My son would like him" and I just said, "I'm sorry, but I want him too and I'm taking him home with me". You see, there was a twenty four hour hold on you Buddy. I needed to think about you first. I didn't want to rush into anything.
You were my very first kibbie. I got the very best when I got you. I know you chose me. We were meant to belong together. What a joy and privilege to have you in my life.
Although you have been gone from my site these five, almost six years. you are and will forever be a part of my life, my very being. One day will shall be together, where I can touch you, hold you and love you all over and nothing will ever seperate us again.
There was a time when I couldn't be here on Catster because we didn't have the net at home and I had to do my grieving all by myself, with Friday and Bijou. We got through the loss of you somehow over time. Friday told me to write to you and I did!! I still have all those letters too.
Friday also wrote to you and did some poems too. How Friday loved you!! Always will, too.
Little did I know seventeen years ago today would forever change my life. You started the most magnificant dynasty, Buddy. Just look at your legacy!!!
There is a very special place in my heart for you for all time, Buddy. My heart and soul.
Today, I smile with all the wonderful, beautiful memories.
Thank you so much for choosing me to be your Meowmy, for choosing to come into my life and forever changing it.
I love you yesterday, today and forever.

In a few days it will be my 17th Gotcha Day!! Meowm never did know my actual birthday, so we always had an adoption caterbration.
Meowm is fixing up my page and decorating it all up so pretty, with the help of my Angle furiend, Norman and his Meowm. Our Auntie Gina is helping us figure out dimensions and our Auntie Char gave us the css code template to use. So thankful for all of our furiends help. Without any of you, we could not ever do this!
So it's a work in progress. Meowm says our Angel Memorial pages are very important. We're so thankful we still have Catsterland, a wonderful place to come to and spend time with our Angels on their own pages.

I think of you every day. I can smile now, and speak of you to others without tearing up.
Then there are moments, like right now, when the tears comes.
The pain of losing you isn't there anymore. But the lonliness and heartache for you is.
Your my baby, my soul kibbie, my child. My guardian angel, watching over me and your furmily.
I'll love you forever and ever, Buddy!!

I am truly blessed ~ our wonnerfur furiend, Percy, has chosen me to be Kitty of The Week over at OKR!!!. Mama laughed and cried, and sure smiled big when she read the wonderful news. Thank you so much Percy for choosing me. Thank you Jax for making a most beautiful keepsake picture, although I am an Angel, Meowmy can still have special keepsake pictures of me, so Thank YOU very much.
I have never been anything, except Diary of The Day ~ so this is pretty big and special to my Mameee. Even when we must leave our families for the Bridge special days mean so much to them.
You should have seen the look on my boy, Friday’s, face when he heard the news. He got so catcited, he jumped a good four feet in the air, and Mamee said, “wow”!!
Friday was sooo happy, along with the girls. He went to the CD player and chose this song, and played in in my honor: Wind Beneath My Wings, by Bette Middler.
It brought a tear to my eye. For the little man to choose this song!! Friday was my gift and I just wanted him to have it all ~ taught him everything he knows, and a great student he has been.
And look, it’s March 3, Catster is still here!! It’s a really pawsome day!!

Well, isn't that something, Catster will continue ~ maybe a little different.
Meowm is really happy all of the wonderful, beautiful Angel memorials will not be destroyed.
We shall remain ~ pawprints upon your hearts and love within your being and our memorials within your sight.

Catster is a wonderful place. We found it back in March of 2007, thru a furiend, karma Kitty. Oh I tell you, it was and is the most amazing place ever!! I am the oldest, the one who started this beautiful family dynasty. And yet I let Friday, my wonderful boy, be the main spokeman for the family.
When we first came here there was only three of us, Friday, Bijou and myself. I had to leave my family in the late fall of 2008 and after time there were two more girls added to my family, Bailey and Neiko and they were so catcited when each joined this magical place.
Catster is a magical place. We got to be our selves. Living out loud and meomwing it our own way. We met some of the coolest kitties ever and became furiends with them. We shared our days, triumphs, broken sad news, deaths and healing on Catster. We learned as each member left for Rainbow Bridge that us Angels never die, we just leave here to start our 10th life and our furmilies who hurt get all the love and support from Catster furinds. Meomwy had to learn this when I left. She also learned how to heal her broken heart.
So Catster is closing. Well, that may be, but let me tell you all a little secret ~ Say Media may take and destroy all the lovely beautiful pages our family has made for each of us. But they can never ever destroy our pawprints left behind. We shall always and forever have our marks left here. Love will always be here too.
There is a piece of each and everyone of us that it part of this place. the structure of this site may come down, but the universe knows we have been here.
In closing, I want you to try to remember this: as you are saving all you can, remember there is a golden box of memories in each and everyone of us. Made here with love and touched by all of our friends. No one can ever take this goldent box of memories away from us. And hopefully in time, when we think about this place, please remember we were here, love is still here and our pawprints remain here for all time

Everything is ready for Christmas now. The very last item I put out was the Christmas story I wrote for you back in 2008, the first Christmas you spent in the presence of God.
I put this gift beside your picture every Christmas Eve.
I looked around the livingroom. At all the cards sent out to us, all the presents under the tree, wow your kids are spoiled this year. The many blessings bestowed upon us. So very many.
Then I stood in front of your picture as I placed your story beside you and I could not help but shake a little as I started to cry.
I know your very busy at the Bridge, helping all the newbies with Christmas Choir music ~ all the jingle bells you hand out to the first years ~ its a busy time and you enjoy every minute of it!! I know you so well, Buddy, I can just see the big smile on your face as you tell all the furbabies to sing LOUD for the furmilies to hear all of you sing praises to the great Creator
But you make sure you also remember to come home for Christmas, too!! Now this past year has been a lot easier on me when thinking of you, but I just want you to still come home at Christmas!!
I love and miss you, Buddy and just wanted you to know I wish you a Merry Christmas!!
Love Forever and Ever,

I should have written this a week ago, but my furmily was sent into a tail spin and just couldn't deal with this at the moment.
Now, however, we can. I went to God and layed on His lap, while petting me, I told Him all about what is going on in may furmily. God told me He already knew all about it. So I asked Him why? Why is this happening? He just looked at me with love and compassion in His eyes. He had me remember some rocky times in my own life and let me know He was there every step of the way. God went before us down the paths of life. God would not show me what lays ahead for my furmily. And yes, some prayers have been answered, but Meowmy, she is still scared, because she loves my furbabies so much. So I am asking for you to continue to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.
It was my Rainbow Bridge day on Saturday, Nov. 17/13. Finally, for the first time it didn't hurt Meomwy on this sad annifursary. She even put my wicker bed back up for the furbabies to use. Guess who was the first to use it?? FRIDAY!! My boy, MOL!! Little Neiko has been napping in it, too. It was time, and it sure made Meowmy smile big, too.
We Angels are always with our furmiles, never ever far away, just think of us, and there we are. we also love to see what our furiends are up to. It is love and kindness that we so appreciate. Furiends help in this.
I want to take this time to write down the following furiends who helped Meowmy remember and honor me on my 5th Rainbow Bridge Day
Tiger, Tiny and Beauty ~ Forever Angel Star
Percy and Family ~ Rainbow Star
Gold Beating Heart ~ Muppet
Special Candles ~ Crystal
Red Heart ~ Mac, Ivy, Zander and Family
Rainbow ~ Smokey, Gizmo, Blue, Zoom and Family
Red Rose ~ Platelicker and Family
Red Heart ~ Big Harry and Family
Rainbow ~ Calista, Crouton, Pistachio and Family
Red Heart ~ Smiley Cassanova
Rainbow ~ Calvin Knead On
Pumpkin ~ Reanan
Turkey Leg ~ Smokey Joe, Milo and Mallee
Red Heart ~ Angel Rebby
Blue Ribbon ~ Hazel Lucy
Red heart ~ Marmalade and Family
Thank you all for loving and Remembering ME!!

Wow!! Five years already!! Holy wowzers!! Lots of my wonnerfur furiends have sent remembrance rosies and candles and notes of love to me and my Meowmy. I will be doing a more detailed thank you entry in the coming days.
Today its just about letting the feelings out in a safe place like my diary.
This morning, before Meowmy went to church, I put the idea of taking my wicker basket from the basement and making into back into a bed, like I had. My pillow is still around and Meowm got that out and a cool pillowcase, too.
So that all got made and put in the living room. Bailey was the first to check it out, just a sniff here and there. Then low and behold, Friday came to check it out and jumped in and made a little nest for himself and laid down!!
Now that really put a smile on Meowm's face!! She took my wicker bed down five years ago today and I just knew with all that is going on, it is time to put it back up and let my furmily enjoy it.
how fitting my own boy, Friday, is the first to claim it!! Meowmy took a picture of him in it and will hopefully have it posted tomorrow.
When she came home from church, Friday was still in it.
It's a sad day for my Meomwmy. But she isn't hurting like the previous years. yes, tears have been shed, but they don't hurt like before. Meowmy is letting me move on, she and I have been working on this for a year now. She can feel the difference and you know what??? It's ok for her to feel this!!
Oh, Meowmy is crying now ~ gotta get her back to not feeling bad!! ok, yes now she is smiling, because I am forever and ever in her heart!! She knows this!! But she also knows she needs to let me go and play with the angels up here and let go of all of her fears and just love and enjoy the kibbies at home. They need all of her love and concentration!! I was blessed, because I had it and they deserve to have it, too.
So I am letting Meomwy and all the other families that hurt, to know we angels are forever and ever in our families hearts but we need to be let go at some point. Love and remember us daily!! But please let us go so you can move forward with smiles and laugh and enjoy fully the new babies that come into your lives. They really need and deserve all of you love and attention. And never ever begin to fear loosing them, just enjoy each and every day with the furbabies in your lives
