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...

The magic of the angels among us is everywhere, most prevalently in our hearts.

I just learned that my friend McGregor crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge the same day I did. (just click on his name and you will be taken to his page)
I know his mommy is hurting just like mine is... and everything that you all have done for my mom has meant so much, for we do not feel alone. Love has lifted our spirits so high!
If you can take a moment to stop by McGregor's page, with some words of encouragement or a soft purr, I am sure his family will be sincerely grateful.
Rainbow love and purrs,

Mom and dad miss me so much and want me to know how much they love me. I do… and I whispered my love to them in the evening breeze last night. The day of my crossing mom’s best friend gave her the most beautiful wind chime, it is big with deep resonating chimes. Last night through the open kitchen window they heard the chimes softly gently resonating, and mom and dad both said… “Poo”. I smiled, because I did that. Every little bit of comfort helps.
I will be coming back home on Monday 8/19, reunited with my family on a different level, within a beautiful little kitty urn. Be at peace, my sweet family, for I am at peace. Look up in the night sky tonight, when you see that one special bright star, you will know it is me. Look up and beliEVE…
To my Earth friends, my Angel friends, my human friends, my feline and canine friends, thank you for all of the wonderful gifts, sweet words and candles glowing on my candle page. I am just getting around to catching up here, and I’m seeing so many wonderful diary tributes about me. Thank you, my SoulKitty AGGIE, my sweet mascot QUEEN TALLULAH, my best friend EBONY,
and my dearest forever friends ANNA, PAISAN AND SAPHIRA for your sweet and meaningful diary entries! I love you so much!
You’ve touched my family’s hearts in ways that words cannot describe.

There is no such thing as Good-Bye, for I am always here in the hearts of those that I love. This morning I woke up in a beautiful place filled with vibrant colors, gossamer butterflies dancing, fields of fragrant catnip fields, love and happiness. I am happy. I left behind the cancer that hurt me, never to come back and hurt me again. It is okay, although I am physically gone, my spirit lives.
My Journey to the Beautiful Rainbow Bridge was gentle and peaceful, surrounded by my loved ones in my favorite spot.
Mom has lived by this quote for 3-1/2 months: "When the world says "Give up", Hope whispers "Try it one more time" ~
We never gave up and we will always beliEVE
Do not weep at my grave for I am not there,
I’ve a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I’ll be singing in the sunshine,
wild and free playing tag with the wind while I’m waiting for thee.
We have MANY thank you’s to write for the wonderful gifts and messages. Thank you for the outpouring of love and support for me and my family today. I love you all so much.

It’s been 3 months since my cancer diagnosis. Mom looks back on Month 1, Month 2 and Month 3. Looking at how I was and responded back then compared to now. I’ve tried to stay pawsitive and upbeat, and I will be honest with my friends and say that I’m not doing as well as I was 1 & 2 months ago. Mom and I continue to fight however. Together, we read a very poignant post about euthanasia and when the ‘time is right’ to let a loved one go free. Mom cried tears over this, as she has cried tears every day for me, as my comfort, my life are so important to her. She realizes that my situation is daunting, and imminent. We try to hide our tears and fears, but we have to be realistic too. With that said, we continue to fight, to beliEVE, and to pray.
As far as I am; well, I don’t eat much cat food nor baby food any more. I pick and lick and drool often. Boiled chicken bites have been my saving grace and have been what have helped me pull through. Mom spends an hour every morning and an hour every evening tending to me and it is SO worth it. LOVE!
May peace be with you all, and thank you for reading, loving and beliEVEing.
Updates to follow…
With softest purrs of love,
