Well I have to tell you that I am so proud of Mom, today she got up in front of a group of Pet Sitters to tell them my story fighting cancer...MOM I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, KNOW THAT I WAS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU TODAY!
I know it was hard for Mom to talk in front of people she isn't good at that and is one that sits in the back, but today she went to the meeting for me and our continued fight....
Everyone was very interested in my story and Mom handed out the cards also the kitty breast cancer ribbons Calvin Kneads On's Mom made for our mission to spread the word about cancer in pets (Mostly breast cancer because of me). She asked all the pet sitters to help her get the word out to check their own pets and their clients pets for any lumps, changes in their behavior or habits...and she told them that it is so important to get pets fixed at an early age, unlike me I wasn't fixed til I was a little older and had already had kittens before Mom adopted me.
So Mom's continued fight for me has started and I am proud of her...everyone loved the card & pin, knew Mom was sad but they told her she was doing something good..None of them knew pets got breast cancer so the word is out...
Mine and My Moms wish is to educate pet parents, get them to check their pets and hopefully to save animals lives...
I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW MOM I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, I WAS THERE WITH YOU RIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS!!!! YOUR ANGEL IN PINK

With heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyes
after all these years; we must say goodbye
Please understand; we've done all we could
if there was anything we could do; you know we would
I'm sitting right here; gently rub your ears
while I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave us; we'll never forget
especially the ones; of the day we all met
One last hug; and one last kiss
you have no idea; how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes; this one last time
you tell me it's ok; you know it's your time
Close your eyes now; and go to sleep
we'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keep
Go in peace now; our good friend
we'll stay right here with you; until the end
Dream of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fine
We'll run and play; side by side
with a soft warm feeling; deep down inside
Your memory will live on; in each one of us
you'll always be number 1; to all of us
Have a safe journey; through the night
I promise when you awake; you'll be in God's light
So with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyes
just for now my friend; we say goodbye

My Sweet Tallulah you have been gone 2 weeks today, it is so hard not having you having you here with me, you are in my heart always...I cry for you, but know you are at peace...I love you my sweet QT my Angel in pink wings.
Another Poem from Lady!!!!
How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in your memory and so very slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laughter and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.
~ Constance Jenkins~
Rest in peace my sweet angel girl...I carry on the fight for you!!!

My kitty friend Lady and her Daddy sent Mom this poem and Mom wants to share it...this is how I felt when I needed to go and have Mom help...she knows I am here with her and will never leave her!!! Thank you Lady and Dad...
FROM FRIEND TO FRIEND
You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.
Cut the bonds that hold me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady cat,
My pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.
I'll be there watching over you,
Your forever friend,
And in your memories I'll play,
Healthy once again.
Queen Tallulah Angel in Pink
I love you Mom, I am at peace!!!!

WOW Mom got a package today she knew what it was her friend called her the other day to tell her she was having a gift sent for me and Mom...
It came just as Mom was leaving I was watching over Mom she needs me and knows I am here...she didn't open it until later in the day, she wasn't sure she was ready to see the gift...
When Mom opened it she was sad and shocked at the color...it is a statue of a kitty laying down with wings for my grave...it is a bright pink color, Mom says it looks like it will glow in the dark it is so bright...
It says Beloved Lula..that is what her friend called me...Mom wanted to seal it so she sprayed with her sealant stuff and now she is waiting for it to dry and tomorrow she will place it on my grave...
And tonight Mom order my special memorial of a paw and she will be able to put a picture of me, then she ordered a memorial stone that will have my name and date/s on it...WOW I will have so many things on or near my grave no one will miss it...Mom also ordered another kitty statue I helped her pick it out, I guided her & we found one at a nursery, the kitty is stretching with the bottom in the air, she said it reminded her of me using my cardboard scratcher backwards after my surgery....
I told Mom in the night that she will have to take pictures so my friends can see where I was laid to rest and she can go visit with me and watch for the butterflies...that I send to her.

It has been a week since I made my journey... Mom and I want to thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your messages, gifties and support...there are so many Mom finally read some of them tonight and all she did was cry...she is unable to thank everyone there are so many, but please know they all mean so much to Mom...
Mom is still having a hard time not having me there with her, she says there is so much emptiness and loneliness in her heart now. She keeps asking herself why all the time, she doesn't come up with an answer...but she tells me she will not stop fighting for me even in death...she needs to get the word out that all pet owners need to check their pets, watch for changes and watch what kind of food you feed us...the more holistic/organic the better.
Well I have to go and rest now I am still healing and becoming well again and getting used to my beautiful pink wings...I guess I will need to take some flying lessons so i can fly and land better...sending each one of you love and peace...know I am here and I am watching over not only my family but my friends that need me to watch over you...

Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge.
Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a faithful servant
and has always done her best to please me.
Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.
Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor her
by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well
and let her know that I will always love her,
and when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring me home.
Thank you , Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the time we've had together
And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now..

Beyond The Rainbow
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart
ANGEL QUEEN TALLULAH WITH PINK WINGS...I AM FLYING FREE AND I AM HEALED...BUT SAD THAT I CAN NOT BE WITH MOM IN BODY...BUT MY LOVE FOR HER SHE WILL FEEL AND SOON SHE WILL HEAL...
NITE MOM I LOVE YOU AND NITE TO MERRY, SCOUT, KING SIMBA AND ALL MY FRIENDS...ANGEL QT WILL RETURN AND SOON WILL LEARN TO SPRINKLE ANGEL DUST ON THOSE IN NEED AND BE A GUARDIAN ANGEL...

THIS POEM IS FOR MY TALLULAH....AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Pawprints in my Heart
pet loss memorial poem
My lap is too too empty, and cold
the soft resting head no longer there to warm it.
No comfort to be found, no furry body to stroke
my quiet companion gone....
My heart is broken, there are no other words
to write it - this empty ache, this space
you filled, loving always, never judging...
My friend has left, and my hands, arms, all
helpless to stop it.
Little one, fly free, where the fields are green
and filled with friends gone before. I will
carry you always, your pawprints ever beating,
running joyously to greet me whenever I call
and memory stirs in my heart...
Yesterday when I was at a clients home outside in their backyard with it being hot the dog and I were outside...there was no wind it was still...all of a sudden the wind picked up their chimes chimed a beautiful sound, their dog was looking up and following something...at that moment I knew it was my Tallulah. The hair on my arms and neck stood up...she was there with me...
Then I had to take the little dog for a walk...I usually take her on her side of the street,just down the street from them on both sides is a wooded area...for some reason I decided to go across the street...when I got into the wooded area I saw a beautiful white butterfly with a very small amount of black....it circled around my head and then it kept circling the area I was in...I knew it was my angel Tallulah...she was letting me know she was fine and she would be with me always in some form or another, maybe the butterfly, maybe the wind or even a little kitty kiss...she would never leave me alone...our bond so great it gave me peace to know she was able to show me such a beautiful butterfly and to show me it was OK...
Just wanted to let you all know this...it was amazing...it brought tears to my eyes again, but also a joy like none other...Fly free my sweet you deserve it...you were so brave and strong, you are so amazing....love you my angel...Mommy
