To my dearest wonderful adoring caring spectacucatular furiends ... yes that's YOU. And even though I'm a Redhead in control for almost 15 years, now that I'm at The Rainbow Bridge I'm not quite certain how to orchestrate this note to you. Just unpacking and learning the ropes of the heavens and, well it's different being light weight and nobody's telling me I'm needing a diet ala Marie Osmond or Kirstie Alley! That's nice...
You're all correct in that I kept a secret from you - my Congestive Heart Failure and Ah-Rythmia (oh gosh that's EyeTailYun cat chat which means I lived with Guido waaay too long!) . August '08 I opticatted for no meds, going the natural route which is amazing, because I lived almost 2 yrs with this condition. Enjoying every day with my Boyz, lounging in sun rays and moving hourly as the sun moved to the right of the living room was my joy and quality life - all without meds. And I was still popping Yolo in the cheeks when he got too close and having a redheaded hiss fit when the Boyz needed their meowster manners reminder.
Suddenly last Tues I didn't feel so good - but hey I'm almost 15. Redhead control sets in and I let Momma & the Boyz know it was time for me to travel. Oh my OH MY! Lemme tell you sometimes the hoomans don't listen cuz they don't want to !
I selectacatted (Oh My I'm doing that EyeTailYun catchat again!) Holy Saturday, the eve of Easter to travel over The Bridge, It was a good trip: I took off on time Saturday morning at 10:53 am HQ time with no delay on the runway, the flight was not bumpity bump bump or thumpity thump thump like the Easter Bunny did, and the flight landed on time. When I arrived at The Bridge, I was amazed - yes amazed! There to greet me were so many of my meowster pals, and my 2 other sons who'd gone before I ever adopted Guido and Yolo. Everybody was at the arrival gate with signs saying "Welcome Baci"! Just like at the airport when you see those Limo drivers all lined up at airport arrival gates holding signs for "Mr and Mrs Traveler".
The Feline Fashion Angel has scheduled me for Wing-Fitting. Hmm, hope they make Garnet colored wings to match the wedding ring Redd Catt gave me! As I unpack, tears flow from my amber eyes when I read and re-read the abundacat notes, poems, songs, words of wisdom, shared and warm thoughts, prayers, simple sayings of support, and blessings and I see the gifts galore, stacks of zealie gifties YOU have bestowed upon me and Yolo and Guido. There is absoluticatically (oh MY, there I go again talking like Guido!) no way I can begin to say an appurrrpriate thank you as I'm overwhelmed, I'm touched, I'm stunned, I'm speechless over the outpouring of love and concern and I want you to know YOU warm my kitty heart so much. My son Guido has a Guido-styled tribute to me on his GUIDO GAZETTE and purrhaps you'll all see the real me! Giggles!
I promise once I get my wings I'm flying down to visit and help others, but will you promise me something? Promise me you'll never ever change - always you will be in my 'now new and improved' red heart.
I love you & send heavenly purrs galore,
Baci "Mrs Redd Catt"

Hi Baci! I will go with you to get your wings. Then we can go to a boutique I found with lots of shiny things like you've never seen before.
Mom says Redheads rule the world! She should know .... she's got Jasper now. MOL
Baci your Tenth Life is going to be even more amazing than you ever imagined!
Enjoy your days at Rainbow Bridge Baci.
Love, Kibbles, Francis and Angel Yoda
we love you sweet Bacixx
We know you are going to make a bee-u-ti-ful angel. Our comfort is that you are in a wonderful place and that you will be looking upon all of us, sprinkling your special angel dust and being a mom to all the kitties there who might need some mothering.
prrrt 'n meow,
& just call me....
You are a beautiful angel Baci.
Baci, as we mentioned in some furriends' diary entries about you, we think it was really selfless and brave of you to keep your illnesses to yourself. You were always just wanting to have fun and make others happy. And that made you an angel even before you got your wings.
Many hugs to your mommy.
Hugs and Purrs to you Baci. Your a purrty red-head Angel.
You're an even more amazing girl than I thought you were. I agree with Edgar....how very selfless to keep that news to yourself. We miss you dearly, my friend. Purrs to your mom. I know Guido and Yolo will make sure and remember all you taught them. *Hugs*
You are a beautiful angel, we can't wait to see your wings.....enjoy rainbow bridge....till we all meet again.
We just read this and we are sending purrs of comforts to your family. :headbutts and purrs:
