We all knew this day would come. Well, it's here.
After weeks of continual worry, constantly fighting the demon in my brain in recent months, and after experiencing horribly bad days recently (including today), I am so relieved to report, the Rocket Man is about to make his ultimate journey!
My pain will be over very soon. B.Rain Tumor might have won this fight, but ultimately I get to spend eternity feeling healthy once again ... and I will be with my furfamily Angels and Bridge furiends jumping from cloud to cloud at the speed of light. You know, my family calls me The Rocket Man for a reason. I am so happy that I will, once again, get to live up to that nickname! Look out Bridge, here I come!
I've had 17.5 glorious years on Earth with my loving family. My privileged life is one to make any prince envious.
Right now, I am seated comfortably on my nest on the couch. Shady and my human family are gathered around me. And, oh my goodness ... you should see the fursAngels in the living room. It's PACKED TO THE CEILING with so many Bridge Angels. I see Buddie, Calvin, Lola, Rocky Ann, Biscuit, FUBAR, Sophie, Molly, Bobcat, Freddie, Bitchy Kitty Lucy (I still hate her guts, but she is my for-real fursister and I do love her), Sophie the White German Shepard (who I also hated in life, but still love), Tiffany, Cleo, Smokey Bear, Sid, Spacey, Smokey, Rosebud and of course, my brofur Angel the legendary DustytheDogcat. The room is overflowing with furAngels and love ... it's amazing!
Very soon tonight, my human family will drive me to see Dr Martin one last time. I just hope there's room in the car for all my Guardian furAngel friends. (Wait, they have wings. I better call air traffic control and have 'em clear the runway and make some air space!)
Well, I need to spend more time with my family and get ready. But rest assured, this is the right decision and I will report in from time to time after I get to the Bridge; I'll let everyone know how things are going.
Forever love, soft purrs and gentle hugs...
Your furiend always,

Godspeed Rocket, you have lived well and now begin your 10th life!
Purrs of comfort for your loving family.
My brofur angel, Scooter, and I will be here to greet you with all the other angels. Our mom and Striker and the rest of our earth family are so sad right now. Let your mom know that we are all here for her.
With a flutter of wings... they await their brother on his journey to join them. All are here... waiting patiently for the Rocket Man. On earth... the sound of a falling tear ... resonates throughout the world ... and is answered by a million purrs.
What a fantastic and beautiful life you lived! And now the journey continues! Fly high and free sweet Rocket! You will never be forgotten!
Hugs and purrs,
Simon & Reuben(an angel)

Oh Rocky, we are so sorry to hear that you'll be making your journey tonight. I know you're at peace with it and it warms our heart to know that you'll be with Dusty and all the wonderful Bridge angels. But we know how hard this will be for your family and it breaks our hearts to know how sad they will be to say good bye.
You have led a long and much loved life. We are so happy that we got the chance to get to know you and are proud to be able to call you "furriend". We're sure that Dr. Martin will make sure that your journey is a peaceful and comfortable one.
Fly free my sweet furriend. Until we meet again...
In love & tears,
Sally Maria & her mama
