Hi, there! My name is Wyatt James. Today is my third anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. It is the second most important day in my life, the first being, of course, meeting mommy.
I remember that day. I was playing with my two brothers, and there she was, watching us. I don’t think she was very impressed with me, but together we made her laugh. After a while, she sat down on the floor, trying to get us to pay attention to her. My brothers weren’t very interested, but I went up to her and looked at her with my big blue eyes (they were still blue). I put my little paws on her knee and she reached out to pet me. I liked it a lot so I crawled up and settled in for a nap. That was the beginning of us.
She took me away to this new place. There wasn’t any furniture to play on and I had to go upstairs to find the bed. There was this great big wall and everywhere I went, I kept seeing me! One day, some very big men came and they brought in this very large “thing.” I was very scared of them. After they left, mommy found me and said, “Look, Wy, we have a couch now!” It was very big and very soft. The chair we had been using went outside on the patio. I didn’t miss it very much, the couch was much better and there was a lot more room for me to snuggle with mommy.
I never did like any people other than mommy. I tolerated my Auntie Suzanne. She was a very nice lady and came to visit us all the time. She loved to hold me and kiss me, and I would always hiss at her and she would laugh!
We had 12 wonderful years together. I remember mommy singing and dancing with me in her arms (she can’t carry a tune and I really tried to get away!). She took us to see Santa Claus (I was very, very loud in the car and only wanted to get away). If mommy was sad, I would snuggle with her, purring away, and patting her face to make the tears go away. My favorite thing to do was sit in front of the coffee table and pat, pat, pat until something fell off. It always made her laugh. When I decided I did not like the big comfy couch any more (I did lots of naughty things on it), the couch went away. Only having a chair was fine with me since then I would get mommy all to myself again.
I was the last face mommy saw before she fell asleep to my purring. I was the first face she saw then she woke up because I would sit on her chest, waiting to lick her face. Other kitties came, some stayed forever and some just a while. Mommy said I was her “mother hen.” I loved it when mommy brushed me, but not when she had to clean my butt. When I was very little, we had June Bugs and I loved to catch them and eat them. Mommy wasn’t happy about the eating part, she always cringed. When people would come over, I would always hide and mommy would tell me when they left. But if they just stood on the patio and talked to mommy, I would be right there, front and center.
When I got sick with hyperthyroidism, I was a good boy and took my pills. But they made me throw up a lot. Then mommy took me to a scary place. I was afraid I wouldn’t ever see her again! When I did, I couldn’t stop purring and snuggling. I did not like having to spend the night locked up away from mommy. I wanted my pillow! Finally, I could sleep with mommy again. And I got lots and lots of extra food!
The second most important day was when I had to say goodbye to mommy. I was very, very sick and in a very scary place again. She came to see me and at first I was so scared I hissed at her. I never hissed at mommy, just everyone else. She talked to me very softly, and let me sniff her. It was my mommy and I wanted her more than anything else in the world. I crawled to her so she could hold me and I purred and purred for her. I knew she was very sad but she could tell it was my time. She told me about a wonderful place where I would be well again and there was this wonderful person, she called him grandpa. She said he would be waiting for me and he would look after me until she came to look after me herself. She said there were other brothers and sisters I hadn’t met, and they would also look after me. She told me not to be afraid. I told her I wasn’t afraid anymore because she was with me now. I told her I would now be looking after her.
Last July, we all got together and gave mommy a new kitty. She said she didn’t want a kitten, but we found one for her anyway. We gave him all of mommy’s favorite parts of us. He is orange and white, for Ollie and Igor, with the pinkest of noses like Spot and RC. He is full of life, joy, and energy like Sammy and Aragorn. And he loves to snuggle with mommy and lick her face when she wakes up, just like ME.
On this, my second most important day, I send my mommy love, because that it was she gave to me. I know she will never forget our first day or all the days in between. Please know, mommy, that I will be waiting for you and until then, I will be keeping an eye on you and all the other kitties

I has been “tagged” by my furriend Soc. Pretty cool name, huh? Meowmy had a kitty a long time ago named Socrates, but she called him Soc! Anyhoo, here goes:
1. I was meowmy’s first kitty when she moved into her current place. I was wif another furamily, but when I saw meowmy, I just knew she was purrrrrfect! I crawled in her lap and started purrrrring and never stopped!
2. My very favorite thing in the world was MILK! Whenever meowmy had some, I tried and tried and tried to get it!
3. Meowmy would sometimes put things on the coffee table and I would look right at her and tap, tap, tap until I tapped them off!
4. I was the bestest ever cupboard opener! My brofurs would bang on them to get them open, but I knew to curl my paw underneath and pull them open so meowmy wouldn’t know I was doing it.
5. I loved my meowmy so much I would purr when she clipped my nails. I never tried to run and I would pat her face when she was done.
6. I liked my water FRESH! I would wait while meowmy refilled the bowl.
7. I slept on meowmy’s pillow, but I had to have her face next to mine so I would be the first thing she would see when she woke up.
Now I’m going to tag 7 furriends so they can tell 7 things about themselves!

I am so furry honored and blessed to be chosen as Cat of the Week in Sweet Face. I just don't know what to say, except thank you! I know meowmy is furry happy! And furry proud of me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
And, I'm also Catser Diary of the Day! I just can't believe how furry honored I am! Twice blessed!
I just want efurryone to know that as much as I miss my meowmy, I am furry happy here at the Rainbow Bridge. Meowmy said I would get to meet my grandpa and he was waiting for me. Grandpa is furry cool for a non-cat purrson (so he says). He even lets me share his pillow like I used to do with meowmy. Plus I got to meet all my other brofurs and a sisfur. Once in a while I sneak down to give meowmy little pats, like I used to do. I know she misses me lots, but I am having all kinds of fun here and have made tons and tons of new furriends.
I especially likes to snuggle with the babies that come too soon and snuggling is my bestest trait. Please tell efurryone that here at the Rainbow Bridge, we have lots and lots of fun!

First and foremost, THANK YOU WILLOW, for giving me wings. They make me even purrtier and now I can fly faster and farther than ever!
Though meowmy hasn't been able to write my full story and tell all the wonderful things about me yet, I know she is always thinking about me. She sends me all the time to meet the new members here at the Rainbow Bridge. She sends me cuz I is the most gracious greeter she knows.
I has meet the most amazing kitties since arriving here at the Rainbow Bridge and I have soooooo many new furiends! Tell all the meowmies and daddies we is havin fun, fun fun (in the sun)!
And thank you to Catster for giving me a voice and allowing me to help when I can. I miss snuggling in meowmy's arms (I luved her kisses), but sometimes I sneak back down when hers sleeping and gives her pats to let hers know I is keeping my eye on her and all my brofurs and sisfurs.
