Arrival Story:
I adopted Lacey in 1984 from Anti-Cruelty here in Chicago. Actually, she picked me. As I walked among the cages looking at the kittens, her paw reached out and snagged my jacket. 'Nuff said. I took her home and she was the first pet I ever had. I was never allowed to have any when I was a kid.

When I moved, I left Lacey and her 'brother' with my friend. It was They were getting up in age and it wouldn't have been fair to uproot them from the home they had so long . So, Lacey and Cagney were loved and cared for very much since '99 by their second mom. Lacey helped her second mom through so many surgeries and sicknesses. Always remaining by her side throughout. I had raised such a good loving kitty and was proud of her. I was fortunate to move back to another apartment in the building 4 yrs ago and be able to be a small part of Lacey's life once again in her old age. I took care of her when her second mom was in the hospital. And, I cried for her when I saw how she was deteriorating. She got so skinny and eventually tired of grooming herself. She went into renal failure at the end. Unfortunately we had to help Lacey to the Rainbow Bridge on Aug 12, 2007, after 23 yrs of love, laughter and many warm memories. She will be greatly missed, but remembered in our hearts always. She was one of a kind.

I guess I never thought about writing anything before. But, there's so much that I see from here and it's just too much to keep still. I watched my old mom reading some stuff here and saw her crying. I know that she misses me terribly. She always tries to be so strong for everyone else. But, I know how her heart feels. She was reading about some of the other kittys that have joined me here. I wish she could know that we're all okay. We miss being down there with everyone, but we know that one day we'll be together again. I know that my other mom had a hard time letting me go. But, it was time. I was so very tired. I really appreciated my first mom holding me close and whispering to me that it was ok to let go. I felt her heart beating against my ear, and the warmth of her arms was so comforting. I was so lucky to have been able to be with her and my second mom for so long. They held my paw as I slipped away. And, when I opened my eyes again, Cagney was waiting for me. Of course, I had to bat him like I always used to do. But, he didn't mind. We're going to keep a close eye on mom and second mom. And, we're going now to get to know all the new kittys that have joined us here. Some are scared and don't know what's going on. It's hard at first, but they'll be okay too. The only thing here that makes us sad is watching our humans cry. We wish we could tell them how much we love them, and how lucky we all were to have each other. But, we will be able to do that one day when they come for us at the Bridge.
Gotta go and keep an eye on the new kids upstairs. My second mom got a couple new kittens. But, now she's in the hospital and my first mom is looking after them. The one looks like me. I know that's why second mom picked her. It's going to be fun to watch them grow.
