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

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

So thankful for my furiends and for Catsterland. On October 11th furiends came together to help Meowmy caterbrate my Gotcha Day. Up to last year, we always called it our “anniversary day”. Never knew when my burfday was. Really like the Gotcha Day name, it is so fitting and just so right ~ it’s the day we “Got” our furmilies, MOL!!
Although I am now an Angel here at Rainbow Bridge, I will forever be Meowmy’s baby!! We all know how important we are and that is why it touches me so when I read and see the love and support shown to us Angels and furmilies.
I would like to take this time to put it down here for remembrance all those who sent gifts of Remembrance in my honor on my Gotcha Day for my Meowmy:
Special Picture ~ Tundra and furmily
Acorn ~ Canadian Kitties who Want to Be Friends with all Kitties
Pumpkin ~ Angel Rebby
Pumkin ~ Tiger, Tiny and Beauty
Red Rose ~ Platelicker, Raincloud and furmily
Red Adoption Ribbon ~ Smokey, Gizmo, Blue, Zoom and furmily
Shrimp ~ Smokey, Gizmo, Blue, Zoom and furmily
Red Rose ~ Zoey, Elmer, Opie, Muffy and Boo Boo
Canadian Flag ~ Smiley Cassanova
Red Heart ~ Mac, Ivy and furmily
Red Heart ~ Tigger
Red Heart ~ Big Harry, Patches and furmily
Chocolate Cupcake ~ Apollo (In Memory)
Thank you all once again. Its been a hard time for Meowmy, otherwise she would have written this all down earlier. One of her bosses passed away from cancer at the end of September.
Meowmy has peace and can smile now when she thinks of me. Once, though she never thought she ever would again, her heart literally hurt.
There really is a time and season for everything . Now that the pain is gone from my Meowmys heart and she can remember me with a smile, she just wants others who are hurting right now that one day your mourning will turn to joy once again.
Rainbow Bridge is a wonnerfur place, where we all play, are young and loved. I am one of the Angels in charge of the Heart Baskets. These are important baskets, as they are filled with our furmilies love that was sent with us on our journey. My basket is kept very close by. All the love is still shiny by the tears spilled upon my Meowmy’s cheeks that fateful day I had to make my solo journey. I was shown how to take those tears and make them shine with joyfulness. I even made sure Meowmy learned about this in my visits with her in her dreams.
So once again, thank you all who helped remember my Gotcha Day!! It really means a lot to both Meowmy and myself

When a loved one is called away to continue they're journey ahead without family and friends left behind, it is at this times life is difficult and sadness engulfs us.
But please don't grieve too much nor too hard ~ for live continues. If you look all around you, nature itself teaches us this. There is newness in everything!!
And there are angels all around us, too!! How many times have we read or heard stories where lives have been saved from whecks, because something was there to protect them? We all have angels, why just look at me, I am Meowmys loving Angel now, along wif mai brofur, Bobbie.
There are Angels that sing and praise the great Creator of all, and if you come a little closer, please don't be scared now, and be very very quiet. I want to show you something pawsome, I am going to share the Archangels of all kibbies!!
look at these pawsome Archangels
Yes see we have Archangels that help us, too!! Along with us Angels here at the Bridge
So please never fear, take comfort in knowing angels abound and we are still alive FOREVER, too!!

It sure has been a fun busy time up here at the Bridge lately!! We have been furry busy with bowling tournaments and Meowmy heard me get a few strikes that last couple of days
I should explain sumfin here, you see while I was living on earth I was very scared of thunder and lighening and even the rain would make me run and hide.
The first summer I was go to the Bridge was very hard on Meowmy and she wasn't able to be on Catster, so could not share how she felt. Anyway, the first rain storm brought Meowmy to tears, as she remembered how scared I would have been. I put a thought into Meowmy's head of how us Angels are busy bowling and having fun..you see every time there is thunder, its really the bowling balls rolling and the cracks are strikes!!
So now Meowmy hears how much fun us Angels have while playing and bowling wif each ofur!!~every time you hear thunder and lightening, even rumbling in the sky, just think of your Angel bowling and making sure you can hear how much fun they are having while waiting for the great reunion day!!

I am so happy. Meowmy has finally been able to cope soo much better these last few months, ever since she decided to start putting up other pictures of me and not just my Angel pictures.
I have been gone now to Rainbow Bridge for four and a half years~wow has the time ever gone by fast!!
I think Meomwy has to also grieve here on Catster for me as we were gone for a few years and when we came back she spent time on my page, too~but in a very different way then when I was alive at home.
I am still alive~I live forever and ever at Rainbow Bridge ~ it was my body that had to go and then my spirit, my true essential self, was released.
I have visited with my furmily often and love my Meowmy forever! My boy, Friday has also learned it is ok to be close to Meowmy and he even is now a papa, too!!
Love is forever ~ that can never be taken away or destroyed!! Everyone grieves differently and at different speeds. But one thing in common, all the Meowmys and Daddy's will forever love and remember their furbabies!!

Today is Rainbow Bridge Day, Buddy. I get to write to you! I have written countless letters over the years and don't really need a special day for this..but I do think this idea of having a special day set aside to remember our babies at Rainbow Bridge is wonderful.
Buddy you are never far from Meowmy's thoughts..not a day goes by I don't think of you. You were and always will be the best!
How you loved everyone and never made strange with hoomans~such a loving, friendly gentleman you were.
I miss so much about you. There are times I wish I can pack the furbabies up and we can all go for a visit to you so we can have a day together, but Rainbow Bridge is so far away and I don't know how to get there~it's not on any map that I can see.
Rainbow Bridge is just way too special a place for everyone to know where it is~but you've come home to Meowmy in dreams to show me how to reach you~all I have to do is sit quiet and close my eyes and just remember and there you are Buddy~oh my I can even see how your fur is!
Rainbow Bridge is soo far away and this is where you reside now ~ but you know the the secrets of the universe Buddy ~ you know how to traverse between our world and the spirit world. I hear there is only a veil that seperates us and I can't see through that veil but you can!
I have physically felt you and I have seen you, too! Thank you for being able to come and let me know you are alright. The body may get tired and need to rest but the spirit will always live on.
Buddy wherever I go, you go too. No more having to stay behind and waiting for Meowmy to get home..now you get to go on all kinds of adventures with me..and when I think of all of your new adventures with your Angels furiends that I can't be apart of~this just takes my breath away!!
Your very soul, your spirit, was always loving, kind and gentle. You didn't know what it was like to be mean or bossy or a show off, you just wanted to be furiends with everyone. And just to think that same spirit lives on at Rainbow Bridge!..you have lots of furiends there and you make Heart Baskets to give out to the new arrivals ~ how fitting you should be doing this ~ Buddy you had the biggest, most loving, kindest heart I have ever had the privilage to meet!
I love you, my sweet handsome prince. Forever and ever, Buddy

I am sharing this Christmas story Meowmy wrote fur me on Christmas Eve 2008. Meowmy was missing me very much and wanted to give me one last thing for Christmas and this is what she did..she wrote me a story and here it is..writing mistakes and all...so this one goes out to all the new Angels at the Bridge this year..and for anyone who is missing the ones gone before us..
TAIL OF CAT'S FIRST CHRISTMAS
Gather around everyone for I have a tail to tell. It’s a very old story indeed. The story begins one cold wintry night in a town called Bethlehem. This is a town that is very far, far away. This place is still important today, for here we find everyone’s first Christmas story begins...
Bethlehem was overflowing with people who had come from far and near to be registered for a census decreed by the Roman Emperor. There were so many people, the town was bursting at it seams.
By the time Joseph and Mary made it to the town, there was no more room anywhere for them.
“I’m so sorry Joseph. If we didn’t stop and rest so many times we would have been here sooner.”
Gently placing both his hands around Mary’s face, Joseph replied, “Mary it is no one’s fault, especially yours. Don’t worry, there will be a place. For God would not allow his Son to be born out in the cold with no protection.”
On they walked through the town, searching for shelter from the cold. Around a corner they came to a crooked narrow street. And at the end of that street they came upon a small little Inn.
“Oh Joseph, I think my time is near, please hurry and talk to the Innkeeper.”
As Joseph searched through the crowd of people eating and making merry at the tables, he saw the Innkeeper bringing more food out from the kitchen.
Rushing to the man, Joseph loudly said, “Sir, we have need of a room. My wife’s baby is coming soon you see.”
Not quite hearing it all, as the dinning room was noisy this night, the Innkeeper said, “The broom is in the corner, but what does a baby need with a broom?”
“No, sir, my wife’s going to have her baby soon! We need a ROOM.”
Smacking his head, the Innkeeper replied. “Ohh, I’m so sorry, I misunderstood! I have no more rooms available. There is none to be had in all of Bethlehem.”
“What are we to do sir, the baby is coming and it’s very cold outside this night.”
Stroking his beard, the Innkeeper thought, ‘yes what indeed to do’. Then it came to him!
“I do have a stable right out back, it’s not much, but it will be warm and safe. What do you say?”
With no time to think Joseph replied, “It will have to do. A midwife is needed to.”
“I have no time to look for a midwife for you, look at how busy this night is for me,” replied the Innkeeper.
Looking past the people crowded in the dinning room, through the door, Joseph saw Mary sitting on the donkey, holding her swollen belly. ‘What am I to do?’ thought Joseph.
“Is there a midwife here!” Joseph cried out to the crowd.
A few people closest to Joseph looked up for a moment and then returned to their eating and story telling. Most just ignored him, too caught up with old family and acquaintances, too busy to care what this poor person needed.
“I will have a girl bring out some hot water and other necessary items for the birth of this child. I’m sorry, this is all I can do for you. Now I really must get back to work, I’m so very busy.”
“Yes, yes, of course kind sir, and thank you very much for letting us stay where at least my Mary and baby will be safe and warm.”
Turning to leave, looking once more at a crowd of people who didn’t care, Joseph thought of the baby coming, a baby everyone in this room looked forward to, but didn’t see. This child would be born in a stable, while these people went on in their story telling and visiting, and sleeping in a warm bed, with a fire near by.
‘No fire for us, not in a stable,’ thought Joseph. Ohh, Mary how I wanted so much more comfort for you and this child.
With a brave smile on his face Joseph went to help Mary down off the donkey’s back.
“I’m sorry Mary, there isn’t any room available. The kind Innkeeper is letting us use his stable out back.”
Mary saw the sadness in Joseph’s eyes. Knew he felt bad.
“It will be alright Joseph, you will see. At least it is some place out of the cold.”
Upon entering the stable they both felt the tender heat coming from the animals all about. There was a cow with her young calf in one stall, and a few donkeys over in another area. A goat with a couple of kids nickered around their mother. Close to a manger there were two cats along with a litter of kittens, softly curled up together to stay warm.
“See Joseph, it’s nice and warm in here. Oh my, Joseph, I think it’s almost time.”
Looking around, in all this humble surrounding, Joseph thought to himself, ‘only the animals here will be witness to the wondrous birth about to happen’.
A girl from the Inn entered just then carrying some hot water and old cloths and a lighted lantern.
“What a night to have a baby, it’s so cold. In the bundle of cloths you will find other necessary items for the birth. I’m sorry, but all the good cloths are being used by our guests.”
Gently smiling Mary replied, “That’s alright, we are grateful for these things. Thank you so very much. It is warm in here with the animals, and now we have more light.”
“You are welcome; if you need anything else, please let us know.”
After the girl left, Joseph shut the door from the cold and helped Mary spread a blanket down onto some hay. He then helped her lay down, to be more comfortable.
“Not the place I expected for you or the baby, Mary.”
“Joseph, God will be with us, everything will be alright. Look, even a place is here where we can put the baby higher off the cool ground.”
No animal made a sound, all watched quietly as baby Jesus came into this world. As they heard the angels singing, the animals came quietly closer to where He lay, helping to keep Him warm.
The kittens came forward last of all, scared of the big animals all around them but curious as to what was going on. Something special was happening here, they just knew it.
As Mary looked in wonder at it all, she spied the kittens and her heart went out to them, for they were the youngest and lowliest animals in the stable.
“Just look at them Joseph. I have never seen such a litter of kittens such as these. One has no tail, poor thing. Look at the long hair on that one. And that one has so many toes!”
There was one orange and white kitten who just seemed so shy and quiet.
“Come over here, little fellow and join the others,” laughed Mary
She finally did come over with a little more coaxing. Joseph picked her up and handed the little feline to Mary.
“Come see my baby, little fellow, He is tiny and new, just like you.”
With bright eyes this little one gazed down at the miracle of God’s birth. For even though she was very little, all of God’s creation rejoiced and knew of the Savior’s birth, the Great Creator’s son was born this night.
As Mary stroked this tiny feline’s forehead Mary wished her and the litter mates a full and happy life.
“Joseph, let us take this kitten home with us, it can grow up with Jesus.”
Laughing, Joseph replied, “Alright, Mary. But I think the kitten is more for you then the baby. I have a dog, you may have a cat.”
And so with the night of Jesus’ birth, each of the kittens who were present went to different parts of the world. The Magi camel boys each took one home with them. One to the Orient, one to Asia Minor, another to a far distant land. The others went to Egypt, and even sailed to Europe. All of these kittens became mothers and down through the years their offspring would know just who their Creator was from stories passed down.
And what of the one Mary took home with her? Well, if you look very closely at the offspring’s foreheads, you will see an M clearly marked on each of them. A special mark indeed.
Merry Christmas Buddy. I wrote this story for you. I like to think that Mary gave a special mark of favor to you and all of your ancestors. May you enjoy your very first Christmas in the presence of your Creator.
Much Love, Your Mama

The Bridge has been very busy lately. So many new arrivals..too many!!! And some way too young!! I have been working very hard on the heart baskets..as well as helping the new angels get around Rainbow Bridge..showing some of the most spectacular spots to play in and chase butterflies.
While our fumilies are busy on earth getting ready for the Pawlidays, us andgels have been busy too. We are always ready to greet all new arrivals, as well as getting our messages ready to send to our furmilies. Yes, we do send messages to our fumilies!! It makes us angels furry happy when our hoomans can finally start to smile and sometimes laugh while they are replaying a memory..especially of us kibbies playing with our toys on the trees our hoomans put up just for us to play wif...ok..so sometimes we were told "NO"!!..but that didn't stop us..hehehe..and learning from that..nothing stops us Angels from spending the Pawlidays with our fumilies and furiends.
One thing at the Rainbow Bridge is that we get to sing and play in the biggest concert of them all. We all shine and have musical instruments to play as we sing Carols to our great Creator!!
There are sooo many new angels with us this year *wipes a tear* I am not even going to try and name any here..lots of furiends made the trip this year..and now Calvin, Smokey Joe, Angel Buddie and his wife Hazel Lucy and others along with myself who have been here for awhile will be helping the newbies getting lined up and making sure they all have their jingle bells to use to play and sing..We are telling them to sing LOUD!!! The pawrents need to hear you deep in their hearts this Pawliday season!!
So pawrents who are missing us Angels..pawese remember this: We are gonna shine bright and sing loud..listen fur us!! And we will be coming home, too...close your eyes and feels us!!! See..we love you too
