Whenever a kitten is born on earth it is given a wondrous gift-the gift of forever paws.
"Remember, "the young one is told, "your glowing paws celebrate the shining spirit within you, but only you can see their brilliance. They will take you on grand adventures, and lead you to new friends, but their true purpose is to guide you to the person who would welcome you home.
Should you find the one who is meant to hold your gentle heart, the gift of the paws will keep you connected always and forever"
So kitties come into our world, and one by one they find us. They weave themselves into our lives like furry tapestries and blanket us with their love.
All too soon, there comes a day when our animal companions must leave us. So they step lightly from their old bodies, hurting bodies, and ready their paws to carry them to the bridge that will take them onward.
Just before they leave this world, every animal you loved on earth takes a little piece of your heart, which they carry on a ribbon that floats in the sky.
In its place, they leave on your heart a print from a brilliant forever paw, a gift that will one day light your way back to the four-legged friend who loves you.
Then it's off to the bridge in the stars, where angel pets watch over earthly friends and wait for their loved ones to join them.
Animal companions know how hard it is for you to say goodbye to them. They see every tear that is cried whenever a treasured pet is lost. All of these tears flow like a river out of this world and into the next.
Each evening, just at sunset, the animals gather at the bridge to drink from the river of tears, for all of the sadness has been left behind and only the love remains.
Angel kitties never forget any of the people who loved them. They often leave a little piece of their heart with the special veterinarian who took such good care of them.
When a person carries a forever paw print, they can never be separated from the animal who left it on their heart.
Should you wish you could be a tall tree, with arms so long you could reach your furry angel, never forget your beloved pet is peacefully sleeping in your branches.
If you wish the Big Dipper would lift you up to the one whose paw prints dance in your heart, try searching the sky for a bouquet of stars sent with love from your cat above.
So, if the loss of an animal companion has left a hole in your world, just dangle your feet into the void and you may feel whiskers again on your toes.
Furry friends love to visit when you are sleeping. If whispers come in the night telling of other kitties in need of a loving home, remember the heart of an animal lover can hold many paw prints.
In time you will come to know that your angel is doing well, happy to be young and renewed. You may even see your kitty angel in far off heavenly fields, playing with other angel friends.
One day when your time on the earth has ended, the paw prints that you hold in your heart will light your way to the bridge in the stars. All your animal friends will be there to welcome you home with meows.
Then you will cross the bridge together, paw print and heart forever entwined, never....ever...to be parted again.
