On Wednesday, October 28th, my pal ICEBOX joined me at the Rainbow Bridge.
Icy has always been such a good friend to me and gave me the nickname "Biker Dude Milo" after seeing a picture of me next to a motorcycle. When I went to the Bridge, her Momma made my Mom a beautiful little basket with a candle and a stuffed white kitty in it.
Icy's Momma loves all her babies, but Icy was her baby girl. She'll be updating her diary soon, but in the meantime, we were given permission to share the email that her Momma sent to a few friends the day she passed:
Subject: We lost Icy!
My poor, poor Icy baby.
I found Icy on her cushion tonight. She curls up in the late afternoon and sleeps for hours. I went to wake her up for her nightly ground beef feeding to get weight on her, but she isn't going to wake up. She left us several hours ago and I wasn't there to hold my baby girl.
Icy was born with a heart murmur and we knew it was coming, but it is always always too soon and sudden. I wanted a Rainbow Bridge page ready for her when this day came and I have hundreds of butterfly graphics as she loves watching the butterflies out the window in the Butterfly Garden. I just could not ever find the time.
My hubby takes this stuff way harder than I do and he is going to totally lose it, and today is hubby's birthday.
We miss you terribly and also feel the acute aching of Icy's mom and dad over losing their baby girl.
That is just too sad for words, our hearts ache for sweet Icy and her lovely family,we send our love and lots of ((Hugs)) to them allx
My mommy's eye are leaking for you and Icy. Both of your stories are really touching. Purrs and (((Hugs))), Ava and family
Hazel Lucy, Soc, and Ava Corrine, thank you for reading my diary and adding your comments. I miss my family and friends too.
Rest in peace to our friend Icy.
Thank you for welcoming Icy to the Rainbow Bridge, Milo.
It took me a while to find this diary. I tend to get lost in Catsterland because all the signs are down so low!
Icy was a beautiful cat, inside and out. I know her family will miss her terribly, but I'm sure that like the rest of us, they know that she will always be there with them in their hearts.
If I knew how, I would be purring for her.
Whoops... that was supposed to be from me! *blushing*
