It's almost impossible that it's been a month since you left Riley.
I miss you more every day.
I have made a promise to myself to try to stop crying, and remember all the funny things that made me laugh about you.
...like the way Cary would flop on top of you, and throw her tail around your face, like a boa. It often made you sneeze...but you never protested. You were the gentlest soul I have ever known.
...or the way you would reach your paw out to say "more" when I was rubbing your soft belly.
I teased you about that tubby tummy. I'm sorry sweetie.
...and the way you would clean and hold all the new kittens. All babies that join our house will never know your love now.
But I am so, so grateful that I did. For nine years you never stopped loving me. From the day we found you, you have been my Big Love.
I pray you have found peace, Riley. We'll have our special time again...wait for me.
Love forever and ever,

I'm so sorry your mommy is sad....Dear Riley, let's hold paws and fly down and give her comfort....
Many purrs that it gets better. I understand it will still be very raw, but Riley was a very lucky kitty to live with you. His memory will live on through you and Catster. His Catster page is precious. (Have you saved a copy) It a great record of how pawsome Riley was.
To Momcat: Riley is fine here at the Bridge. We see each other ever day and we go to the cat nip fields and the butterfly fields, we drink hot cat nip tea, and have cookies. He is adjusting well. Sometimes he has a problem with the wind drafts, but we all do at times. He often tells his stories of how much love he got ( and still gets) from his entire family. He gets belly rubs too. We have a belly rub machine up here! It's Heaven!!!! He still comes to see you as you no, and he always leaves a warm spot in your heart. You know it's there. You feel it often. Hope you have a great day, cause Riley wouldn't want it any other way.
If i could Riley i would wrap my paws around your mom's neck and give her one of my 'Anna kisses" mom says they make everything all better ~aways~ since i can't i will send her some extra love from all of us and say a prayer her heart will ease. My love Sweet Riley, i miss you so much. Anna
Losing a baby is so hard. Every one of them takes a piece of your heart with them when they go which you don't get back until you join them. Try to remember that it is for a short time only that we are parted.
In the meantime remember Riley with love and smiles. It's what your precious kitty would want for you.

How loved you were and always will be. Purrrrs for your loving mommy who just touched our hearts with this beautiful diary entry and tribute.
