Arrival Story:
When I first started volunteering at the North Toronto Cat Rescue BBQ was brought in by a man who was just about to start his BBQ. He opened it up, and guess who popped out? Poor little guy was all by himself. He took him to the rescue and was in the same kitten room as Laurie. He was about 8 weeks old at the time and I have helped to care for him the entire time. He is a sweet little headbonking loverboy! We just started calling him BBQ and it stuck and I am not going to change it :))))

He has a bit of a cold right he is not as energetic as he used to be when he was smaller. He and another cat named Smudge (who was adopted) used to chase all the other kittens in the room including Laurie. A short while ago, BBQ was in the main cat room and somehow received an injury to the back of his neck. A chunk of fur was GONE. We don't know how he did it..and we do know that it wasn't a cat bite, there were no puncture wounds. It has healed just fine, but he is missing a patch of fur on the back of his neck that is just starting to grow back in! Everytime I went to the rescue and picked him up he would immediately start to purr and snuggle in. Home he came. He is number 8, and such a sweet little BooBooBEAR!!!

I am overwhelmed by the kindness that so many have shown during this extremely sad and difficult time. So many loving tributes and soft words of comfort even from some that we have not had the purrleasure of meeting.

It means so much, to know we are not alone in our grief, and that so many understand. There is no place like Catster for compassion and I want to thank everypurr who sent rosies, stars, special gifts and pmails. I am not sure I can convey exactly how much it all meant. I am trying hard to send a personal message of thanks, to each and everypurr but I am afraid I will miss some and I don't want anyone to think their special thoughts weren’t read and appreciated.

We miss BBQ so much. He was such a loving and gentle boy. He loved to be brushed and would rub his face on the bristles and puff out his tail in pure pleasure. He loved to have his chin scritched and his purr was the very biggest part of him. We didn't see this coming and the shock waves have still not subsided. I phoned the vet today, and his ashes should be back home with us in about 7 days. I chose a black stained glass container that I can put a picture on the front of, for his resting place.

I found this poem online and would like to share it with all of you.

His Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of him as gone away-
his journey has just begun
life holds many facets
the Earth is only one

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And he was loved so much.

- Ellen Brenneman

Until we meet again BBQ, we love you sweet boy!

Thank you,

Tender memories of dear little BBQ
(posted by Angel in Black Cats Crossing our Paths - thank you dear furiend)

A Memorial poem for baby BBQ and Dianne

I little knew that day that God would call your name,

In life I loved you dearly, in death I do the same.

It broke my heart to lose you, you did not go alone,

For part of me went with you, the day God called you home.

You left me precious memories, your love is still my guide,

And though I cannot see you, you are always at my side.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Rest in peace, little one till you meet up with your Mommy again
