This is a special ceremony that Mom has done in the past and still tries to do on Mondays...she has a special candle and it is her time to remember me and her other furbaby angels...it bring her peace, she cries, she smiles and she feels the love from me and my angel family.
We wanted to share this in hopes that this ceremony may help others as it helps my Mom....it is a time for her to reflect on each of us...we hope it will help our friends Moms too.
THE MONDAY CANDLE CEREMONY
WE GATHER TOGETHER TO HONOR AND REMEMBER OUR PETS
Tonight, Monday, we join hands, hearts and souls across the land as one large extended family to pray for our sick and dying pets and to pay tribute to our furbabies who have gone ahead to Rainbow Bridge.
Someday, we will meet them again, with hugs, tears and kisses, as we walk together, in eternity, to our new home.
Until that blessed day, we honor these precious souls and remember them with the warm glow of flickering candles, sending a message of love, light and healing, and the faith to believe in miracles.
PRAYER: God, Creator of all living things, we ask that as we light our candles, the healing warmth of love will flow into the brokenhearted who are tending their ailing pets.
Give to them Your strength and comfort.
We also pray that the soft glow of light will part the clouds of grief and sorrow to surround our furbabies at the Bridge.
May excitement REIGN SUPREME as wagging tails, ecstatic purrs and flapping feathers feel our gentle touch once again.
May they know the gratitude we hold in our hearts for their faithfulness and gift of unconditional love as they are forever remembered.
We are temporarily separated for only a short while.
The silver cord that connects us through time and space can never be broken.
CANDLE 1: PERSONAL FURBABY. Anything you wish to say.
I will not look back for there is sorrow.
I will not look for today for there is longing.
I will look forward for there is OUR tomorrow.
CANDLE 2: FURBABIES OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Read the names of those who are ill or have gone on before us as a tribute to them and their loving parents.
As we all meet here, our Bridgekids will be meeting all newcomers, easing their way.
CANDLE 3: FOR ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND PEACE
In honor of all the homeless, forgotten, abandoned, abused animals.
For the nameless furchildren who gave their lives for others, for research and as a result of humankind's inhumanity.
May the Higher Powers that be forgive the cruelty.
We light this candle for them.
As our lights shine brightly through the galaxy, may the angels smile upon us, and know that for a brief moment, we have put aside worldly differences to bond as ONE.
I have sent you on a journey to a land free from pain, not because I did not love you, but because I loved you too much to force you to stay.
MOMENT OF SILENCE.
"Blessed are they that mourn, for they will be comforted."
Love, light and healing to all. Amen.
The candles being lit tonight;
Cast a soft and welcome flame.
And draw our loved ones to the light,
As we call to them by name.
Imagine spirits taking flight,
For a moment our souls entwine.
Say not Good Night, but in some
Bid them all-

Spring is finally here and I have sent the butterflies to catsterland and earth....watch for them & you will see....I will keep sending butterflies from heaven
Hoping to catch your eye
Circling around you, oh my
Butterfly, butterfly, come into the light
Oh, what a beautiful sight
Flying so gracefully
Into the sky, the butterfly
Trying to catch a butterfly
Fly, fly, fly, butterfly
There she sets upon the mums
I'm having so much fun
Here's another on the sill
Your standing so still
You go to touch her
There she goes, the butterfly
I hear a tapping on the window
It's the butterfly, fly, fly, fly
There she goes into the sky
Flying so high, the butterfly
I'll see you another day
Butterfly, butterfly, away
Mom I am sending you a special spring butterfly, hope you will see very soon...she will be so pretty she will remind you of me and you will know that it is me...saying Hi Mom, I am here!!!
HAPPY SPRING TO ALL MY FRIENDS

Talllah angel in pink flying down from the rainbow bridge to report that last year Mom found out that Blue Buffalo once a year has a fund raiser and awareness month to get more pet owners aware of cancer in dogs and cats....it is happening now the month of May.
They have partnered with Petco, Mom donated last year, came home went to their website and put my story and picture on their site...she can't believe it has been a year already that she did that...
Mom will donate again this year because cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats...
When a furry family member gets cancer, it's devastating.
There is also a place you can go to do a tribute to those pets who have fought and survived, and to those whose memories live on. petco.com/pca
I am not advocating Blue Buffalo, but I am always looking for ways to donate to dog & cat cancer...Mom and I are still fighting for all who have gone through this horrible nasty disease we hope that one day they will be able to stop this or help us to live longer and or be cured.
Cancer in us devastates us all sooner or later and it saddens us that we are unable to stop this disease...me and Mom wanted to pass this on to anyone that is looking to donate to help....we are still selling my breast cancer awareness bracelets that we are sending 100% we raise to UC Davis for Kitty Breast Cancer research...
I need to fly back to the RB we have a lot of angel kitties with birthdays today...so for one day we are celebrating...
Remember I always send butterflies from heaven
hugs and love from me to you

I am in my rainbow garden taking care of the butterflies, always in the arms of God...watching over you...I am safe, I am young again and healed...always in the Rainbow Garden and in your heart.
In The Rainbow Garden
Your tears fall
Your heart aches
I have gone away
Gone to heaven to play
The memories remain
Of the happy days
A meow and a purr
As you feel the soft fur
You gave me your love
No more could you do
A short life of joy
For I am gone
Off to heaven.
your kitty angel is gone
but within your heart
the love will live on
Standing in sorrow
and in your mind's eye
look into heaven
and please do not cry
For there in the Rainbow garden
Stands God and in his arms
I am the kitty angel softly purring
safe from harm
Sending butterflies from heaven
angel hugs and love

"The Busiest Day In Heaven"
It's the busiest day in Heaven
I'm planning a big surprise
To let you know I love you
And that no one ever dies
Even though your down below
And I am up above
I'm sending you my wishes, butterflies
And all my angel love
It's really quite exciting
To plan this big event
For lots of gifts will come your way
And all are Heaven sent
First I'll take a bubble bath-
My splashes might cause some rain
But knowing all the fun I'm having
Will help to ease your pain
Next I'll get some pictures
In my halo and pink wings
So when you get to Heaven
You can show me all around
I have color crayons in Heaven
And I will draw some stars so bright
And place them in the sky today
For you to see tonight
Then Jesus will have story time
And I will sit upon his lap
He'll tell me all about you
Just before I nap
I'll awake full of energy
And play a game or two
Before I finish sending
All my love to you
After snack I'll write a song
For all the birds to sing
And know I've made you happy
With all the joy it brings
At night time I'll be tired
But I'll still hold you tight
My paws will wrap around you
And keep you through the night
And when you finally slumber
I will sit and pray
Asking God to bless you
On this special Mothers Day
Your Little Angel in pink

Flying down to earth to see the beautiful Hello Kitty light that shines brightly for Me and Mom....as time has past since I have left earth Mom realizes that in many ways I looked like Hello Kitty.
Mom won a Hello Kitty night light and it now watches over Mom, it shines brightly for her & Me...it is hanging on the wall next to my angel picture Calvin's Mom made for me and Mom...she won it from Calvin's Mom's auction to help her raise money for her Breast Cancer walk...
hello kitty you are very sweet
we love your heart and share the dream
you make things very neat
when I see you I start to beam
you have helped me when I’m down
you have turned my frown upside down
the love you have is in me
though I may not be perfect
but you still work with it
making me feel that I’m worth it
so for all its worth
thats all brought forth
life can seem perfect
and for all your help
for making me worth it
thank you hello kitty
you make the world perfect
you shine brightly for me & Mom
As I sit here at my shrine I see the Hello Kitty shine brightly for me & Mom...she is watching over Mom...
Fluttering back to my butterfly garden at the Rainbow Bridge I now see the light shining brightly for me & Mom, watching over her.

My sweet Tallulah oh how I remember the first time I saw you, I was working at the cat show for Friends of Cats. At the time I was not looking to adopt another kitty I already had three Chunk, Bobby Lynn and Star! You were from Friends of Cats, Terry who brought you told me the story of how they got you. Someone found you in an apartment complex, you were tiny, pregnant and someone was mistreating you...I asked how can someone hurt this beautiful sweet kitty. It broke my heart, you tugged at my heart and I knew you were meant to come home with me. I promised you that you would always be safe and no one would ever hurt you again.
You didn't really trust anyone but who could blame you after what you had endured in your short life. When I decided to adopt you I didn't have enough money with me, but luckily because I was a volunteer and Terry knew me he let me take you home because he knew I was going to give you the best loving wonderful home. I sent in the rest of the money to Friends of Cats the next day...You were so afraid we were trying to get you in the cardboard container that I had to buy to get you home in and something scared you, you got out of my Moms arms. I was so afraid for you, afraid you would get out, but you ran the other way and into the very large and tall windows...we had to yell escaped cat so they would close the doors til we got you again.I know you remember that too my sweet girl.
One of the other volunteers had rescue remedy, we got to you put a towel around you and she gave you rescue remedy to help you calm down. My Tallulah I still remember that day as if it were today.
We had to work with you to let you know that no one in our home would ever hurt you, with time you trusted us, it took you longer to trust dad, so we think it was a man wearing big shoes because of your fear of your dad and anyone that wore large shoes....but in time you were so sweet and you never let anyone cross you, you stuck up to the other kitties.
As the years went by you became bonded to me and I to you, my sweet Tallulah...you slept with me every night, you loved to eat, meowed loud to get my attention to get you food. You were so cute and funny too. You loved to go out and just sit in the grass. If I was not around you slept where I sat or on my robe.
Now as time passes and I remember you today my sweet beautiful angel it is still hard not having you with me, to hold you, smell you, hear your little meows and to have you sleep with me. Oh how I miss you!!!!
Mom was finally able to look at your pictures of when you first came to live with us and some video's I took of you...now I will have to share them with your friends....
My sweet Angel Tallulah you were a special gift from God and you were taken from me too soon, but I know God had others plans for you.
I remember you today Tallulah, you are always in my heart and memories that can't be taken from me. Happy 13th birthday/gotcha day Tallulah I love you always

Cats are Wonderful Friends
Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side -
A friendship that takes time to grow -
Small wonder why we love them so.
"A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.
And for a brief moment its glory and beauty
belong to our world.
But then it flies on again,
and though we wish it could have stayed,
we feel so lucky to have seen it."
Mom is lucky cause she sees all the butterflies I send her from heaven; and lucky to have found me and watch our friendship & love grow!
Sending hugs and kisses to you all from heaven!!!

Hello my friends!
I am coming to earth today to say thank you to all that helped me & Mom raise money for the UC Davis Feline Mammary cancer research! We wish we could have raised more money but to us every penny went to a good cause thanks to all of you. We raised $350.00 from selling my Tallulah's Kitty Breast Cancer bracelets...
We hope those of you that helped us are still wearing your bracelets and spreading the word about kitties getting breast cancer...
We just became friends with a sweet little black kitty that now has breast cancer, it is breaking our hearts and we hope her Mom will get in touch with Mom for support....Her name is Avail...1034890. She has been on catster for a while but we hope you all will go visit her, help her and her Mom as deal with this horrible cancer & become friends with her..
Soon it will be my 2nd Rainbow Bridge day, Mom can't believe it...she still feel like is was yesterday, she has been upset knowing that the day is getting closer...she has been going through pictures and has found some of when I was first adopted and before I got cancer...she will be putting them on my page soon.
Again thank you all for helping in our fundraiser, we love you all..
Angel hugs and kisses
QT and Mom
