Sad news ~ Our dear furiend Cocoa crossed the Rainbow Bridge- during the night

August 1st 2011 6:26 am

Shortly before 8:30am EST, Meowmy got some very sad news. Auntie Barbi called Meowmy to tell her that our dear furiend Cocoa had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He will always be a special part of my furmily and always in each heart. He left some big pawprints in each of those hearts. We are all still in shock. Please remember Auntie Barbi and Unkie Rob and all of Cocoa's sad siblings that he left behind to mourn and miss him. Cocoa was and is very special to my meowmy... she always loved to hear his cute little meows (sometimes very loud) as he chatted when Auntie Barbi and Meowmy were on the phone chatting. Rest in Peace, dear and special furiend. You will never be far from our hearts. We LOVE you, Cocoa. Clawdia and I were part of the welcoming party as you arrived at the Rainbow Bridge.


A beautiful poem.

As many of you know, Meowmy is now on Facebook. This can be dangerous as she is not furry good with things like that and Facebook often catfuses her. That being said, she wanted to post something in my diary and in Clawdia's that someone sent to the beautiful new Angel Hazel Lucy. Meowmy was so touched by this poem and wanted to share it with furiends who may not have seen it before and who are not on Facebook. Meowmy apologizes to the purrson who sent it to sweet Hazel Lucy for not remembering who sent it.

Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away
...her journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting
from the sorrow and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much!

We don't know the author, either. But isn't it beautiful?


Happy Belated Valentines Day to all my furiends and another- birthday greeting.

Yesterday, sweet Angel Navin R. Johnson-Davis sent me a rainbow rosette. He said, "Happy belated birthday Fire! I would love to get together w/ you here at the Bridge & celebrate with you...Maybe we could have a picnic & catch ladybugs? All my love, Navin R. Johnson-Davis" Navin, this sounds like a lovely plan.

Yesterday, my furry handsome brofur-in-law Tuffy sent me a big Valentine box of chocolates (or so it seemed). He said, "Happy Valentine's Day my sweetest and most beautiful wife. Will you be my Valentine today and furever? I love you always and forever. You make my heart flutter whenever I think of you. All my love, kisses and deepest devotion. Love, Tuffy" Well, I scratched my head but I did remember that both my meowmy and Smokey (and Tuffy's) meowmy are both challenged... seriously challenged. MOL. Then, when Mojo opened her special present, it was explained. Yes, our meowmies are wonderpurr but we need to gently guide them and understand that they are only human. So, thank you to my handsome furhusband Smokey. Mojo told me about the mix up. I love you both... Smokey and Tuffy and I love my mother-in-law Peggy...

I hope all my furiends and their humans had a very Happy Valentines Day!

Yesterday was my birthday.

Yesterday was my birthday at the Bridge... *giggles* BUT my meowmy thought that it was today. She is a whole day behind. There have been so many issues going on in our furmily with the sickly or injured siblings and my human grandma has been in the hospital and now a rehabilation facility since the end of December. Meowmy says she is lucky to know what year it is.... moreorless what day. So, I forgive her for being off by a day on my birthday. I KNOW Meowmy loves me and it doesn't matter which day we celebrate, does it?

I have some purrty amazing and caring furiends, however, who did realize which day was my birthday. I got some lovely prezzies.

Mr. Sam and furmily sent me a beautifur rose. They said, "Happy Birthday at the Bridge, Fire. We love you!!!" I love you, Mr. Sam!

Tyler - Mr. Boombastic Angel and his sweet furmily sent me a big balloon bouquet. They said, Happy birthday beautiful angel! Much love from our family to yours xxx"

Angel Wanda and her wonderpurr furmily sent me a dozen beautiful roses. They said, "Happy Birthday dear friend. We know Wanda is in line for a piece of your cake and to help you celebrate. Hugs to you and your family. Love Wanda, Norman and family" Wanda and her precious furmily was one of our first furiends on Catster. They hold a very special place in our hearts.

Angel Albert sent me a most loving heart. He said, "Hope your birthday at the Bridge is just like YOU ~ PAWZ-atively PURRRRRRRRRR-fect in every way. Love from your friend, Albert". Albert and his angel crew welcomed me to the Rainbow Bridge when my furmily and I joined Catster. Albert and his furmily are most warm and loving and my furmily dearly loves them.

The Hughes furmily sent me a birthday hat to help celebrate my birthday. They said, "The hughes family gather round and "on the count of three" begin to sing happy birthday: have a grrr-eat day with loadsa fun and treats: loadsa love hugs purrs woofs and head-butts xoxox" My furmily sends their concats to the humans in the Hughes furmily. They just got married so stop by to tell the humans concats.

Teebo and his sweet furmily sent me a loving heart. They said, "Thinking extra special thoughts of you as you celebrate your Birthday at the Bridge. Purrs, Teebo, Callie and Rose" Teebo and his furmily is another of our longtime Catster furiends, very special to us.

Kay sent me a rainbow rosie. She said, "Happy Birthday Fire.. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. Love, Kay" Kay is another longtime Catster furiend. She has always been so supportive and remembers our special day. Thank you for being so caring, Kay.

Big Harry and his furmily sent me a loving heart. They said, "Sending you love and purrs on your birthday at the Bridge, angel Fire!" Big Harry and his sweet furmily are some of our more recent furiends but cherished as are all our furiends.

Samantha Angel sent me a beautiful rose. She said, "Happy Birthday Fire! I made you a delicious catnip Birthday Cake! All the kitties will purr & sing to you and when you blow out your candles on your cake, I hope all your wishes come true! Love Samantha xo " Samantha is a newer furiend on Catster and one of the most beautifur white angels you will effur see.

Adam Dylan and his wonderpurr furmily sent me a nice birthday kiss. They said, "HAPPY MEOWDAY FIRE! We are THINKING about our FURRY SWEET & FURRY BEAUTIFUL FURIEND today A "BIG KISS" from all of Us to YOU! We SEND OUR LOVE to YOUR PAWSOME FAMILY today. WE LOVE YOU SO FURRY MUCH. Purrs & MUCH LOVE, "THE GANG OF FURS" Adam and his furmily have been so supportive to my furmily with the health issues and Adam has not been well. Please say purrs and prayers for Adam and for his meowmy who has not been well lately, too.

Angel Lucky and her sweet furmily sent me a rainbow rosie to celebrate my birthday. They said, "Happy Birthday Fire! We are thinking of you today. Love & purrs, Lucky & family" Lucky and furmily are some of our longtime Catster furiends. Most cats who know them enjoy the many antics of the younger Kitcat. Thanks for being our furiends and for all the smiles.

On February 3rd, Tyler - Mr. Boombastic Angel sent me a beautiful vase of flowers. He said "Pretty flowers for a pretty tabby girl. With love from a handsome tabby boy xxx" Tyler's meowmy is the wonderful artist who painted my beautiful portrait. It looks just like me. Tyler was one of our furiends that we looked up to from the early days of our Catster membership. He was and IS a very special boy.

I got some lovely birthday pmails from Angel Little One, Hazel Lucy, Riley, Kibbles and Teddy - Mr. Wiggle Butt. Thank you all for the sweet messages.

A big THANKS to effurypurr who helped to celebrate and make my 40th birthday furry special for me. I am really glad that Meowmy finally figured out what day it is, too! I love you all....


Happy Easter to ALL my furiends.

I want to wish ALL of my precious furiends a very Happy Easter! My earth furmily had a lot of people over today and all my siblings were locked away for their own safety. They weren't happy about it but Meowmy said it must be that way. I was furry busy flying by to check on them today and for the past few weeks.

I want to let effuryone know that our Meowmy and Dad said my earth furmily must tell all of you what good kitties they have been. You see.. on March 20th both of my pawrents got really sick. My meowmy did not get out of bed for two days except to go to see someone called John. My dad was the same. At first, they thought they had gotten food poisoning but they talked to Grandma and Aunt Barbara who had eaten the very same thing as my pawrents when they went out to eat on Saturday evening and neither one of them was sick. My pawrents both were hit with the problem about 3 AM. After finding out that they were the only ones affected, they decided that it was probably a virus. During the time that my pawrents were seriously affected, my earth siblings were PURRfect angels. Normally, they do squabble daily and they are most demanding at food time. Not one of them did anything during the time our pawrents were so sick. My dad said that you never knew cats were in the house. My meowmy says she is so thankful that they were such good and caring furbabies. And she was thankful I was watching over her, too.

Meowmy only ate crackers, toast, applesauce, jello and bananas and drank Pepsi or Coke when she finally ate on the third day. Those items were her only source of food until Friday (April 2nd). She just could not be around food. Meowmy says it is a lousy way to diet for sure. My dad started eating much sooner than that. My meowmy has a sluggish gallbladder that in past years has bothered her but it has been 4 or 5 years since her last spell... the sickness seemed to have triggered a really bad attack with her gallbladder on Monday the 29th. She was ready to go to the hospital one night this past week. Then, on Friday, things began to ease a little for her. We had planned this Easter gathering for a while now and Meowmy was determined not to let this spoil things. Dad was ready to call it off. Today turned out to be very special and the food was delicious and Meowmy ate. The only down side is that our air conditioner unit downstairs is NOT working and it is to be in or near the 90's. Not good timing weatherwise for a nonworking air conditioner.

Meowmy says she is happy to have things getting back to normal. She said she feels like she let our 90 year old furiend down as he has had to do most of the feeding of his cats since Meowmy got sick. She needs to help him with the litterbox duty and take Tiger in for bloodwork to see what his BUN and creatinine are doing. Tiger is 14 years old. If any of you who have had renal issues have any advice for Meowmy in helping with Tiger, please pmail her. Crawford loves Tiger and Tiger loves Crawford. Crawford is going blind and has a bad back. Even his surgery to cement his spine has not relieved all of his pain.

Prince was in the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights this week with a big hairball. Dr. Booker was able to break it up and move it out of his tummy. Cassidy had to go see Ene Ma again. Cassie says she does not like Ene Ma. So, now the plan for almost all of my earth furmily is to get Laxatone twice weekly and 2 tablespoons of pumpkin when Meowmy can sneak it in on them. And, to make matters worse, their doc doc broke her ankle. So, it was a sickly week for my earth furmily and for my sweet doc doc. We know there is a new dawning now... Easter has come! We are so thankful for the love we have been shown that was "written in red".

*stomps paws* Yesterday was the 1st anniversary for my precious furhusband Smokey and me. My meowmy and typist did not allow me to send Smokey an anniversary giftie or message because her ol' brain had it fixed in her mind... or what is left of her mind... that our anniversary was today. NOT. I know that my precious Smokey will forgive me but I am still upset with my meowmy for allowing this to happen.

Smokey and I have had the purrfect life and he is the best furhusband a girl could ever want. I am the luckiest cat at the Bridge. I love you, Smokey.


A yummy hotdog from my handsome furhusband Smokey.

My pawrents were out of town all day yesterday. They went to a place about 2 1/2 hours away called Durham. My dad's cousin lives there and they had a celebration of life pawty and dinner for my dad's cousin Kaysee. Kaysee's doc doc tried to take all her insides out. He took either 2/3 or 3/4 of her pancreas, her gallbladder, her bile duct, either 1/4 or 1/3 of her stomach, some of her small intestines and probably more than that. You see, Kaysee had pancreatic cancer but it was insitu which they say is good. Now, her tummy is permanently marked for her chemo and radiation treatments. My pawrents said her doc doc said she has a chance of 100% cure IF she follows all the strict regiment and completes the treatment. So, the family was celebrating life. They had a great time and we give thanks for Kaysee and her new gift of life.

This afternoon, my handsome furhusband Smokey sent me a yummy Hotdog. He said, "Meowrrr my lovely. How is my gorgeous wife? I have set the table and fired up the grill for a nice, private cookout. Just you and me to celebrate this Labor Day weekend. Let's relax; enjoy the day; maybe we can take a swim later on. XXXOOOXXOO"

We gained a very sweet furiend named Sammie at the Bridge yesterday. Many kitty angels were gathered to welcome a special furiend. We will help you when you need it, Sammie. We are sorry you had to leave your earth furmily.

My furmily and I send your grieving pawrents our deepest sympathy. You will live furever in their hearts. You made many special memories for them.
