Oh my…. It is amazing how friends come together to help someone be happy. Since I passed away last August, everyone has been so kind to me and my family. I am nearing my 4 month anniversary on the 11th of this month and it still isn’t easy for mom…. It was mom’s first Thanksgiving without me in 12 years, and she was sad because it felt so empty without me. Granted, I am with her in spirit always, but she just misses holding me, watching me hunt my banana and beg for turkey, and she gets so sad. The littlest things are so important.
My Catster friends have helped us get back up on our feet and be happy. I am a member of some wonderful groups who have taken the time to honor me! In August I was Member of the Month in Our Daily Walk group, and was then surprised and delighted to be November’s Fur of the Month in Cat & Dog Plaza group… and just when I think the honors will subside, I just found out that I am December’s Golden Key Holder in Catstertown group! Oh MY! Such wonderful honors mean so much and make me and my family feel so special.
Thank you everyone for being so kind and for having such creative ways of honoring each other. I am very thankful for the kindness of others… of YOU! I love you all
Rainbow purrs and angel kisses to all

My sister Lily just wrote in her diary. She was my very best friend out of all of my siblings. We play-fought together before every breakfast and every dinner serving, EVERY day. She always rolled over on her back being the submissive one while I batted at her being the 'ferocious dominant tiger kitty'. She loved me so much. I wonder if she is wondering where I am? Lily… it is okay….
Please be nice to PooToo. I’ll tell you a secret…. I brought him to you. And do you know who he really is? He is my sweet spirit within a kitten, a kitten that showed up in the back yard just 2 days after I flew to Heaven. We beliEVE I was reincarnated in little PooToo. Lily dearest, please be nice to him… he is really a little part of me. He loves you so, and he so wants to be loved by you. It is okay. I just read your diary entry and frankly, PooToo should give you a run for your money~~~ MOL!
(dad is shaking his head, trying to understand the females in his house and what makes them all tick...) MOL

Hello Diary and friends,
It has been a while since I’ve written. I have been busy watching my little namesake, PooToo, grow and flourish. He is going to be a BIG BOY! And he is so happy at our house. I knew that before I guided him to mom and dad; we Angels have that 6th sense ;-) Lily is still being a hissy girl at him, but the others have finally seemed to calm down. *sigh, sigh, sigh… girls* MOL Better be careful dear sis, PooToo will soon be bigger than you!
Well I woke up this morning to a WONDERFUL surprise! My friends at Cat & Dog Plaza nominated me as their Fur Of The Month for November!!! O M C! Mom read me the congratulatory note from SMILEY and she got really leaky eyed. Not in a sad way mind you, but in a very happy and appreciative way. My family and I are indeed grateful for all of our wonderful friends and for remembering our dear departed loved ones. So this diary entry is a my thank you to a group of wonderful and caring admins. Sometimes we mask our grief with silly antics, and it does help; it helps to laugh and smile. My sisfur Oreo has been really good at that. She wears a fruit basket on her head and starts pea fights wherever she goes. Thanks for helping keep mom smiling.
This terrific Fur of the Month honor comes on the day of my sister Chandon’s birthday too! It is a day of double celebration and double joy.
Note to mom: I am doing well and still making beautiful music on my wind chimes, and I continue to send beautiful sunsets and warm breezes my family’s way. I even helped my good friend SAMOA spread magical feathers throughout the country for our families to find and delight in. It has been the best treasure hunt ever for beliEVErs! And on a softer note, there have been many friends journeying to the Bridge lately, and we Angels have been busy welcoming them and getting them accustomed to their new and beautiful surroundings here. Purring softly for those who are hurting and healing.

Diary Gal must have ESP.... she seems to know the special days to choose me as a DDP. *SMILES and blushes*
I was grateful to be a DDP on Wednesday, the day my little brother PooToo was neutered. He did great! And I've been chosen again. Today is a very special, bittersweet day. Today marks the two-month anniversary of my Bridge Crossing. The hurt still runs deep for mom, but all of my friends coming together with love and comforting words does help. Being a DDP today means SO much to me and is helping mom get through this day.
Purrs of comfort and love to all of my friends, especially those in need. I cherish all of you and I thank you for all of the notes, pressies, pictures and positive energy!

Thank you Diary Gal for choosing my diary today as a DDP! It is uncanny the signs that I beliEVE in. Having been chosen today is VERY special. My little brother PooToo went in for his neutering this morning. While mom checked him in, she said "PooToo" but the nice lady pulled up "Poo"... MY record and she said, 'we're removing a mass".... mom teared up. It was a bittersweet deja vu, this is the first time she's been at the check in station since the day I was checked in back in April. The flood of memories returned. Mom dropped PooToo off with a kiss and a cheek rub, saying that I'd be watching over him.
Well.... I sent a beautiful sign this morning. As mom was driving back to work, I sent the most STUNNING sunrise ever ever for her to see, to show her that I am here for her and that I'm watching over my little brother. Mom looked at it and said, "thank you sweet Poo", smiled, and then knew that everything would be okay today.
The picture I posted on my page does not do this spectacular sunrise justice... the sunbeams were perfectly defined and the top rim of clouds were literally on fire. Do you beliEVE?
I love you all,

My good friend Crystal sent this poem to me, and I wanted to share it.
Purrs of comfort to all who have grieved...
and to all who have beliEVEd....
FRIEND, PLEASE DON'T MOURN FOR ME
I AM STILL HERE, THOUGH YOU DON'T SEE.
I'M RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE EACH NIGHT AND DAY
AND WITHIN YOUR HEART I LONG TO STAY.
MY BODY IS GONE BUT I'M ALWAYS NEAR.
I'M EVERYTHING YOU FEEL, SEE OR HEAR.
MY SPIRIT IS FREE, BUT I'LL NEVER DEPART
AS LONG AS YOU KEEP ME ALIVE IN YOUR HEART.
I'LL NEVER WANDER OUT OF YOUR SIGHT
I'M THE BRIGHTEST STAR ON A SUMMER NIGHT.
I'LL NEVER BE BEYOND YOUR REACH
I'M THE WARM MOIST SAND WHEN YOU 'RE AT THE BEACH.
I'M THE COLORFUL LEAVES WHEN FALL COMES AROUND
AND THE PURE WHITE SNOW THAT BLANKETS THE GROUND.
I'M THE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS OF WHICH YOU'RE SO FOND.
THE CLEAR COOL WATER IN A QUIET POND.
I'M THE FIRST BRIGHT BLOSSOM YOU'LL SEE IN THE SPRING,
THE FIRST WARM RAINDROP THAT APRIL WILL BRING,
I'M THE FIRST RAY OF LIGHT WHEN THE SUN STARTS TO SHINE,
AND YOU'LL SEE THAT THE FACE IN THE MOON IS MINE
WHEN YOU START THINKING THERE'S NO ONE TO LOVE YOU,
YOU CAN TALK TO ME THROUGH THE LORD ABOVE YOU.
I'LL WHISPER MY ANSWER THROUGH THE LEAVES ON THE TREES,
AND YOU'LL FEEL MY PRESENCE IN THE SOFT SUMMER BREEZE
I'M THE HOT SALTY TEARS THAT FLOW WHEN YOU WEEP
AND THE BEAUTIFUL DREAMS THAT COME WHILE YOUR SLEEP.
I'M THE SMILE YOU SEE ON A BABY'S FACE.
JUST LOOK FOR ME, FRIEND , I'M EVERYPLACE.

It is official! We have a new little brother, and by unanimous agreement, we’ve named him PooToo.
I have alluded in my diary of having guided a little kitten to mom & dad. 2 days after my crossing over to Heaven, the little one showed up in our yard. Dad said to mom… ‘there is a kitten playing in the back yard’. Sure enough, there he was! A beautiful little Maine Coon kitten. He became a regular at the back porch for breakfast and dinner. He wouldn’t let mom near him, but he sure enjoyed his meals. Time went on and she sat with him and talked to him while he ate. She reached out to pet him and he hissed. MOL! The ultimate act of defiance! As time went on he became more trusting and started eating out of mom’s hand. She and dad were hooked and wanted so much to bring him in. He is indeed a special kitten because I guided him to our home, and because he represents a small part of me that my family misses so badly.
Well… one day he stopped showing up. And he didn’t show up for a whole week. Mom was heartbroken, hoping he was okay. So a week after having disappeared, she went out to give the outside kitties their breakfast, there he was! Just sitting there, pleased as punch. And the very next night on 9/16/13, while dad was playing with him through the sliding door, he came inside! This was the beginning of his new life with us!
So all this week we’ve been helping him get adjusted (and he IS a boy). The boys in my family all love him, headbonk him and give him little baths. The girls on the other hand have been just awful! Hissy and pissy! *sigh, women* They’re getting better though. Little PooToo’s first vet appt. will be on Monday 9/23. We’re holding good thoughts that his bloodwork is normal. Meantime mom is practicing picking him up and letting him know how it is to be held. He squirms and wiggles, but every day he gets a little better.
People wonder…. Where did he come from?? I smile and say…. beliEVE!
Won’t you be his friend? He loves making new friends! Here is his page:

I have some happy surprises up my sleeve. *wink wink* I promise a detailed diary update this weekend when my typist has some time to help me write. As you may know, there is a very special little kitten in our lives that is my little namesake. I’d love your opinion on the spelling of his name. Which do you like the best?
I promise an update this weekend. I’ve also been very busy greeting and welcoming lots of new Angels to the Bridge. While mom is still sad and trying to heal, we understand what our dear friends are feeling upon losing their Earth furkids. We Angels all do our best to let our families know that we are okay.
Softest purrs of love to all… and thank you in helping with the little one’s name spelling :)

Dear diary, dear friends.
It is almost a month since I crossed, and my family is still sad. They know my spirit lives in their hearts and that I am everywhere on the whispering wind, but they just long to hold me. Mom thinks she sees me trotting over for my breakfast in the morning, only to realize it's Lily, or sees me snoozing in a sunpuddle, only to realize it's Tigger.
I do my best to send them signs to let them know I am okay and that I love them so much, and I *think* I'm starting to get good at this. (winks, smiles and giggles softly) When mom sees a sign, she smiles; when she smiles, I purr.
This morning I sent three hummingbirds to her, who played and swooped in the pre-dawn lawn sprinklers, playing, buzzing, dive bombing! It was a wondrous sight, one which mom had not seen before. beliEVE!
I don't think I have alluded to this in my diary, but one of my most special feats was helping to guide a little outside kitten to mom and dad's doorstep, just 2 days after I crossed. The little one came seemingly out of nowhere. Dad said to mom... "there is a kitten in the backyard chasing it's tail". Lo and behold, there he was! Playing to his little heart's content.
My family beliEVEs that I brought this precious little one to my family, to a place of safety and love! He is very timid but with time and much patience, he (OR she??) is starting to come around. When at first he ran and hid when mom came out with food, he now sits at the back door and demands it. He actually ate right out of mom's hand the other evening... but he lets her know who is boss. That's right, it is NOT her, MOL. As he was eating, she gently reached out to stroke him, and he looked at her square in the eye and gave her an indignant kitten hiss, but held his ground. teehee!
We know that we will win his little heart over in time. He is named PooToo, after me.
So while we grieve, some light and love come from the sadness. We hope to welcome this precious little one into our home soon.
I have a date with a butterfly now, and promise to make the stars twinkle brightly tonight for all who love me.
Do you beliEVE?

I am home again
I am back home with my family. Mom has been feeling strong and better while beliEVEing with few tears these last few days. *smiles*
When I came home to her in my beautiful urn today, she couldn’t stop her tears. Mom, I’m HOME! My physical presence is back with you, as is my spiritual presence. I know…. I will share some beautiful beliEVE stories to help you and all grieving, to beliEVE… I love you all...
