   Leave a treat for Dolly ****Rainbow Bridge****

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Sun Sign:
Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:

March 15th 2008


She loved to lay in the sun on the cat tree

She was always afraid of the dog and hissed at him often even though he would never hurt one of his "sisters"

Favorite Toy:
A plastic ball shaped like a mouse's head with little rattly beads inside

Favorite Nap Spot:
She always felt insecure so she napped under the sofa

Favorite Food:
She ate Royal Canin kitten food

She was very smart and knew her name right away.


Arrival Story:
I chose Dolly from her breeder's website when she was just a few days old. She was not from my regular breeder and that was a HUGE mistake. When she was 8 weeks old we went to get her and she was just the sweetest little girl but much more skittish than my other kitties had been at her age. She was always a little quiet and I had to take her to the vet several times in the first few weeks because she was always sick and had chronic diarrhea. Everything that was wrong was just a sign of a much bigger problem. My baby had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia and she passed away on June 5 2008 during a surgery that was meant to save her life.

Dolly was a beautiful calico kitten and she was named for Dolly Parton because she had a Coat of Many Colors. I am so sad that I will never know how beautiful she would have grown up to be. I haven't really felt ready to look at the photos until now but I didn't want her to be left out of the family. She deserves a page of her own.

I just wanted to thank every kitty who sent gifts for my anniversary of my trip to the bridge. It means a lot to Mommy and me. Mommy has decided that I was just so special and that there will never be another calico kitty as pretty as me that there can never be another one to live with my family. She told the "Dolly Persians" lady that they just are not ready to add a new calico to the family even if it was with my blessings. Mommy also says that my Dolly Parton rose is in bloom right now and looked lovely on my special day.


My Bridge Anniversary

It's coming up on my 2 year anniversary at the bridge this Saturday. My rose is in bloom in the back yard and my Mommy thinks about me often. I am trying to send messages to my Mommy that it's time to open her heart to another calico kitty. I know us calicos have always been her favorite but Mommy said she could never love another one. I made Mommy read an ad in the back of Cat Fancy magazine and there is a cattery in CT with "Dolly" in it's name that Mommy never knew about before today. Mommy sent the lady an email and the lady told her it was because of her dog named Dolly for Dolly Parton. Mommy was stunned because I was named for Dolly Parton and her Coat of Many Colors song. This kitty doesn't look like me. I was the prettiest baby ever, but she is indeed a pretty girl. Born on April 3 and ready to go home soon. I am praying for my Mommy to see that I want her to love a calico kitty again and I am sending happy thoughts from the bridge to let her know it's ok.

Thank you to everyone who offered comfort to my Mommy on such a sad day. I know she loved me a lifetime in my short little time on earth. Thanks to The Bridge Brigade,Rebby, Socks Bush, Ellie and Cisco Kid for my Anniversary gifts. And special thanks to Kally Kat who thinks of me often and always stops by to leave gifts and treats. Someday I will meet her in heaven but I hope that will be a VERY VERY long time from now.
Mommy planted a memorial garden at her new house for me (we were getting ready to move when I went to the bridge) As soon as my special Dolly Parton rose bush blooms, Mommy will post a picture of it on my page. That darn rose sure is taking a long time to grow!
