Everything about her
Sami was rescued from a farm where the owner was trying to kill her. Fortunately, my ex brought her home (the only good thing he ever did) as a surprise for me. He had her in his pocket, and when I first saw her, she was just shaking terribly. I scooped her up and cuddled her close to me. She was so scared. I took her to the kibble and the poor thing was so hungry she gobbled it up, like crazy and started growling at me, so I wouldn't take it away. I had another kitty, Tiger that was four. She took it upon herself to act in the role of Mommy. Once Sami felt comfortable, she followed Tiger everywhere, did whatever she did. Sami never did get used to men, it took her a long time to finally feel safe with me. She did not like strangers, she would run and hide. She really only came by me. This was my special kitty. I kept her safe whenever she felt un-sure. She used to cuddle up with me under the blankets and go to sleep. She did finally get used to one man, my second husband. But it took her a long time before she let her guard down with him. Sami was a nipper, she wasn't properly socialized with her brothers and sisters so when she got to excited she would nip you. I still have a couple of those love bites. Memories.
Our little Sami passed away from cancer at age 12.

Tally and Tigger are getting married TODAY!
I was brought home by a mean man. I did not like him. I was scared. But then, I heard a soft voice say, Hi sweetheart. That was my Mommy. Mommy was wonderful. She loved me so much. I never did like that man and was really glad when he was gone. Then one day another man started coming around. My sister just loved him and that man so loved her. Tiger would sit on his lap for hours and purr herself to sleep. I kept my distance, was the like the other one? I didn't think so, because he kept trying to be nice to me with treats and bringing out my favorite toy. I was not going to be easy! So I watched him, for a month. He sure treated Mommy nice, he didn't yell and scream. Hmm, maybe he was okay. Then one day, I broke down and decided to check him out. WOW! He was great! He let me drink water out of a cup. This sure beat the bowl on the floor. You may think that I ended up being a Daddy's girl, but think again. I was all Mommy. Slept by Mommy every night, cuddled up under the blankets next to her. I loved my Mommy more than anything in the world. She always looked out for me, made sure that I was safe. It was really hard for Mommy when the doctor told her that I had cancer. She cried for days. But her love for me just grew and grew, just like my love for her. I miss Mommy. I watch over her from heaven and keep her safe just like she did for me. When my cancer came back and I had a stroke, I kept fighting, just for her. But then, I just couldn't hold on anymore. I heard her keep telling me that it was okay to go and that she loved me very much. I didn't know what that meant then. Her and Daddy helped me cross the bridge the next day. Our last day together was special. She stayed home and it was just me and her. She took me outside and we sat in the swing and she whispered in my ear how much she loved me through her tears. I tried to tell her that I loved her too, but I was so weak. I know that Mommy felt guilty about going on vacation and missing out on those last healthy weeks, but what she didn't know is, I wasn't healthy, but I was waiting for her to come home. So we could spend one last day together. And we did. I love you Mommy.

Where does the time go? Gem and I (and Tiger and Whiskey) celebrated our wedding annifursary this month. Gem whisked me away on a romantic weekend, (he's such a romantic!) and I still feel like a giggly schoolcat whenever I see him!
I just love him so! I am the luckiest kitty ever! I love you Gem! Sometimes it feels like yesterday when we got married. We all just celebrated Shelby's bridge annifursary, even though his mommy misses him so, we are sure happy he is here with us. His namesake "Shelby's Eden" is such a beautiful place, we all know that he had a paw in making it a success!
With Valentine's Day soon upon us, I remember when I first saw Gem, at Tabby's wedding to Jasper, we were helping Gem and Whiskey with Farley, and when we looked into each other's eyes, there was just something that "sparked". I had heard mommy say that many times, when she talked about our daddy, but I never understood until I met Gem. All those years wondering if I would ever meet my own soulmate, it took until I came to the Bridge until I met him. I know that makes mommy furry happy, knowing that I had someone that loves me as much as she did.
I better get going, I need to make dinner, teencats sure eat alot!

Here at Rainbow Bridge, we are counting down the days until Santa Paws comes! As the little kits purr with excitement decorating the tree, and helping the mommy and daddy cats wrap presents, you can just see the love that fills their eyes.
When Catsmas Day comes, we all gather and hold paws and say a purrayer to our furmilies left behind. We wish to let our furmilies know just how much we miss them and love them.
Enjoy the holiday spent with your loved ones and laugh and share memories from Catsmas' past and make new memories that bring a smile to your face. Remember those, who are no longer with us and have a moment of silence.
Most of all, be happy with yourself, with those you love and enjoy the holiday!
Meowy Catsmas and Happy New Year!
