Meow...I made it, I am 3 years-old today! What I am most thankful for on this special day is my life-saving surgery a little over 3 months ago. Without that, today wouldn't have been possible along with many of my other favorite things. My meowst favorite things are zoomies, meeces, delicious canned goodness, playing fetch with my nasty spongy ball (I get upset if mommy cleans it) especially at bedtime, kisses & squeezes (even though I pretend I don't like them, MOL), sitting in the window with my fur blowing in the wind, mischief and oh oh oh LOVE BITES!
I guess what I am most thankful for is my well-trained huuman! She is a good huuman and so obedient. Her best trick is the tapping game. I taught her this trick after I had my surgery. While my meowmy is at the compooter, I tap her leg over and over with my paw and each time she pets me over and over. I tap she pets...I tap she pets. I don't even have to give her a treat. I recommend all of you kitties try it. I have included an instructional video on my Catster page. Most huumans are trainable I think. I got especially lucky with this one. Today is the day, I guess, I must fess up and admit how thankful I am for her. She is nice and takes all of my abuse. I know I like to test the patience of huumans, but she takes it like a trooper and squeezes me anyway. When I was little, many times my mischief got me sent back out to the street, but not with this huuman. I am the light of her life...badness and all. So, thank you up above for my very special huuman on this very special day!

This is Kit Kat's mom here. My friend MISSY and her mom need very special purrrs and purrayers! Missy's mom is going to help her cross the bridge some time today. Hopefully, my experience from 8 years ago will comfort her mom and reassure her that Missy will be ok. Hopefully it can reassure other Catsters going through the same thing as well.
A few years ago when my 21 year-old-cat, Lucky, became very ill, my mom and I would take turns carrying her outside in our arms for walks. We would walk and talk to Lucky and try to do our best to comfort and make her as happy as possible. [I use to take Lucky out for walks on a harness when she was a kitten, but she kept escaping to the great outdoors via the front door every chance she got. So eventually these walks had to stop]. So taking her outside at that point was a small way to make her very happy.
My mom loves flowers, so she always migrated with Lucky to her favorite flowers, her Daylilies. That year my mom's Daylilies just would not bloom like every year when they seemed to bloom like clockwork. My mom was so baffled that each time she took Lucky for these walks, she would take her over to the Daylilies and ask Lucky "Lucky, why aren't my flowers blooming this year?"
Eventually, Lucky became so ill we had to limit Lucky's walks to the windows inside the house. Everyday, my mom would continue to check her Daylilies [now from the window] and usually she would do it with with Lucky in her arms. She would again ask Lucky the same question "Lucky, why aren't my flowers blooming this year?"
Weeks later, I had to make the very difficult decision to put Lucky to sleep. The night she was PTS, I knew I had made the right decision, but even so my pain made the night very difficult filled with what ifs.
The next morning, I awoke to see my mom standing at the window. She looked at me and said "Billie, look outside the window". I went to the window and as I looked out, I could quickly see that all of my mom's Daylilies had bloomed. I had never seen such a bright vibrant sea of yellow. At that moment, I knew that Lucky was sending me a sign. A sign that she was ok...A sign that she was at peace now...A sign that her world was now beautiful again...A sign that she understood and was grateful for my brave decision. She was in a place where she could be beautiful again as she once was on earth. Until this day, I know that my beautiful Lucky made those yellow Daylilies bloom. I know she made them bloom from Rainbow Bridge.
Missy's mom, I just want you to know that Missy too will continue to make the world beautiful, now, it will just be from Rainbow Bridge. Purrrrrrs, Purrrrayers, and love to you and Missy!
(Kit Kat's Mom)

Oh yeah, I am here and I'm loved and that's a blessing enough for me! So anyone wanting to celebrate my birthday...pawwtaay over at Kit Kat's!!!!
