Yes, the rumors are true
One kitty wasn't good enough to replace the greatness that was me, so I've sent mom another kitten.
There are now TWO new kittens in my place: Betzy and New Kitten Who Doesn't Have a Name Yet.
Mom's been real busy with the election and Halloween so hasn't had a chance to get New Kitty's Catster page up, but it will be soon.
In the meantime we decided to post some lovely letters we'd recently received.
Dear Adobe, Now that we are beautiful angels , I think we should be friends. Since I arrived a little bit before you, I would love to show you all the best things here at the Bridge...catnip fields that go on forever, rivers of cream, you can take a boat over to my special island and we can have a picnic. You are such a handsome boy and I know your family misses you so much. You were lucky to have such a loving home. So was I. Purrrs,
"Little Adobe, we send mew & mewer sweet family many deep purrayers. We r happy u r not suffering & finding peace over the Rainbow Bridge. We have 4 sibilings w/ wings there now. They will comfort and introduce you to all the pawsome kitties. Look for them. They will show u the best of times until the rest of us see u all again. Peaceful dreams

MAY I GO NOW?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days and endless hopeless nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond to set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and living Light.
I want to go I really do, it's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears
I love you so, and that you know, because I see your tears.
I'll not be far, I promise that, and hope you'll always know
That my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you for loving me, You know I love you too,
That's why it's hard to say goodbye and "end" this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me, you'll let me go today.

Here are a few stories, letters and poems I was sent after Adobe passed away. Thank you Catsters for helping me through this.
I know it's very hard. But mew can rest assured that mewr Adobe is with mew always. Mew see part of each rainbow home has a path right back the hearts of the peoples and animals that kitty loved. So even though they might not be able to make their presence known thru a rainbow purr, mew know they always are in mewr heart. Maybe this will help too. So mew know what mewr purrbaby is seeing up there. In the rainbow country on the other side of the bridge is a beautiful forest. The animals and birds and all come to greet each new angel. Then they lead the angel to a beautiful field where all the other animals greet the new one. A loved one who is already there or a guardian animal whose job is to help the lonely angels will lead them to their new home where they will wait fur all their loved ones still to come there. Each kitty's rainbow home is just like the place on earth they love best.
Meowmie wrote this purrem, we hope it helps mew.

Welcome to the Bridge. You're going to love it here. Your health has returned completely, and you can romp and play and chase butterflies all you want now.
I know your crossing was difficult on your family. It's pretty tough for those who loved us, so we're going to try and help them too. They're encouraged to post and talk about how they feel. There's lots of love here, and all the kitties, doggies, and families have gone through it, so there's lots of support. Our group will give you a “forever voice.” I'll be with you until you get your paws settled.
Let me share some of the wonderful things that you'll be able to experience here. One of the most important is that ANYTHING you wish for is yours for the taking. Just wish for it and it will appear to you. You can ask for toys, beds, things you’d like to eat, places you’d like to go…anything. Imagine too that you can eat as much as you want and never gain weight or throw up. This can be a good thing in case you overdo it at the Whipped Cream Parlor. Just choose your flavor – Anchovy is very good. There’s the Curly Ribbon Boutique, Mucho Mouse Shop, and The Yum Yum Kitchen, where you can have any particular favorite food prepared just the way you like it. Don't forget the fields of catnip and fountains of milk and honey. There are restaurants for every taste and lots of entertainment, and let's not forget the Catnip Cocktails. Keep in mind also that all chairs are shaped just like your mom or dad’s lap.
There are a lot of activities and places to visit. There's a Kitten Museum for the little ones. They have interactive classes in kite making, puppet shows, and mouse chasing. There’s even talk of organizing a baseball team. You can contact Blue (Catster #226205) if you’re interested. There are hot air balloon rides and something new called Bill’s Bridge Barbecue where you can go during the day for snacks, a beverage, and conversation. We have Hammock Talk on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Both are good places to meet other dogs (yes, we all get along here) and kitties. We also have Fur Love, where you can meet other kitties who are looking for that special someone. If you interested in meeting someone to share your days, contact me personally.
Are you getting the idea? It is truly a kitty heaven.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
We are very sorry about your loss. Adobe, was a very pretty little boy, way too young to go to the bridge. May the words help you though this.
"I know God has taken you home. I'm just someone that's taken care of you," "It's hard to believe that you're gone. But you're in a more peaceful place than here. I'll see you when I can. Wait for me at the gates of heaven."
How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in your memory and so very slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laugher and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.
