My human mom chose this song for me beside I have been with mom and dad a long time and I have been through lots of things with them over the years (moving to another state and Kiki's passing to the Rainbow Bridge) .

Music: Dream Theater, Lyrics: John Petrucci, Album: Octavarium

There's a story in your eyes
I can see the hurt behind your smile
For every sign I recognize
Another one escapes me

Let me know what plagues your mind
Let me be the one to know you best
Be the one to hold you up
When you feel like you're sinking

Tell me once again
What's beneath the pain you're feeling
Don't abandon me
Or think you can't be saved

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Summon up your ghosts for me
Rest your tired thoughts upon my hand
Step inside the sacred place
When all your dreams seem broken

Resonate inside this temple
Let me be the one who understands
Be the one to carry you
When you can walk no further

Tell me once again
What's below the surface bleeding
If you've lost your way
I will take you in

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Oh when everything is wrong
Oh when hopelessness surrounds you
Oh the sun will rise again
The tide you swim against will carry you back home
So don't give up
Don't give in

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you


My Outdoor Adventure!

Hi kitties, I want to tell you about my outdoor adventure on Sunday! Mom and dad were working in the yard. Dad was cutting grass and mom was tending to the flowers. Dad left the garage door open and all of a sudden mom heard 'jingle, jingle' (of our collars) and she turned around and saw Kahlan and me walking out of the garage. Kahlan got scared and wanted to go back inside, but I wanted to stay outside. So mom let me explore. I ate a lot of grass and I saw lots of pretty flowers. So mom was still tending to her flowers and I saw that there was a path to a huge backyard! I was in Heaven! Lots of trees and more grass to eat! There is a big living room window where we get to watch the squirrels and birds in the yard. But today there weren't any birds or squirrels to chase. I was just happy to eat grass! Mom sat on the bench for awhile watching me explore my new back yard. Then she went inside for something--only for a few minutes. Dad came outside and said, "Where's Nigel?" So mom and dad called for me and looked for me for 30 or 45 minutes. Mom and dad were looking through all the bushes for me. I ignored their calls. So mom drove around the block to see if she could find me. When she got back, dad had me in his arms. He found me in the nice lady's yard next door. I was hiding in her shed and when I saw dad, I ran away from him! "But dad, I don't wanna go back inside!" But he made me go back inside anyway. He told me I had enough adventure for the day. Anyway, mom and dad were going to the movies so they had to leave.
So there you have it kitties--my Outdoor Adventure! I hope I have another one soon!

Purrs and headbutts,

Wow, mom sure was surprised when she checked her email this morning and I was named COTD! It was a very pleasant and unexpected surprise! Mom stayed up late again last night to do what else...homework! mol So she slept in a little late today. Well, I forgave her. I sure am glad she was off work this weekend. Gimli, mom and I took a nice, long nap on K.C.'s bed today!

I got lots of nice emails, purrty prezzies and rosettes, and nice compliments today from my Catster friends.

I've been at the Bridge for 6 weeks!

Hi kitties! Today marks my 6th week here at the Rainbow Bridge. Mom thought it was about time she helped me with my diary. She was already crying and missing me, so she thought a little (or a lot more crying) wouldn't hurt! When I arrived here at the Bridge on October 23rd, I was welcomed by Kiki and all of mom's furbabies, my best furiend Henry, beautiful Athena of the A Team, Arthur, my angel guardian Buddie and all the wonderful furiends I had met during my 6 years on Catster that have gone before me.

Mom says she gets the saddest when she is by herself on her days off from work. Even dad says when mom is at work and he is by himself, it is tough. Mom came home from work one Monday night and dad was on the sofa crying and he said he gets the saddest when he is alone. Dad said that Gimli went around the house into each room one night and looked all over for me. I think K.C. and Tabi miss me too. They sleep more on the sofa now. K.C. even sits on mom and dad's laps now while they watch tv!

Mom says that it was an honor that I had hung on and waited for them both to come home from work. Well, I loved them and thought of them highly. They said I was always with them through thick and thin and in good times and in bad. I moved all the way from Florida here to Texas with them!

Well, I must go back to playing with my furiends here at the Bridge! Love y'all!
