Ten years ago today I made my journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Hard to believe it's been that long. It wasn't an easy journey - my last week on earth was a rough one. I was really sick with yet another infection and just got worse as the week went on. Mom and the vet did what they could. She gave me my medicine and tried to get me to eat and drink, but I just wouldn't, or couldn't. Mom knew it was bad when I wouldn't eat my favorite treat - tuna. She tried getting a special food from the vet into me with a syringe, and as weak as I was, I fought her. I think I knew it was my time to go. Mom finally realized that, too, and decided on that last morning to call the vet and take me back in to see if they agreed or if there was anything else that could be done. She couldn't stand to see me suffer anymore. She decided to try to get a little more food into me - again I fought her and then collapsed. The next thing I knew I was standing at the beautiful Rainbow Bridge, and there were many furs there to greet me. Among them were Mom's childhood cats - Tiger, Blue Boy, Black Jack, Si, and Ming. I was healthy once more, and I craved my tuna again! How happy I was when I found out I could eat as much of it as I wanted up here!
