Once again I fly down to earth on a special mission today to tell you my special friends that me and Mom are so excited. My story is on Catster "The Cat Confessional" that's right I am featured today. Mom is so happy but she cries because this is another way to get the word out and to educate others about Kitties getting breast cancer & us helping others to learn.
Please go and check it out...There are 2 pictures of me & Mom...the first is when I was young in 2000 and the other with Mom was taken in 2010 by a friend of Moms.Thank you Lori and HQ for thinking of me and featuring me in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month...remember wear pink & celebrate life!
Little did Mom & I know that me coming to catster, getting breast cancer that 2 years later I am being honored, my story is on catster and we are still working to help others.
Our wish is for one day no kitty will ever get breast cancer!
My Kitty Tallulah is my Angel
In this life, on this earth, and in the days that I spend trying to do the best I can, I know that I wouldn't be half the person I am if it weren't for my little divine inspiration that comes from my Tallulah my Angel. She was my saving grace on more than one occasion.
She was my see-me-through and inspired-my-smile companion. When she listened, she heard what I was trying to say. And when she communicated, her words came straight from the heart. She made me feel that "yes, my presence really did matter!" She constantly added to my joys and to the value of my self-worth, and I wish I could thank her every day.
My Tallulah was my very own down to earth kitty angel I cherish her very much, and I am grateful for the joy she brought into my life.
Thank you my Tallulah my Angel for coming into my life and giving me joy, love and hope. You taught me so much I can never thank you enough. I have learned that I can go on and you are with me always and will continue to fight together even when you are not with me on earth, you my Tallulah my angel I cherish you always.
Mom to Tallulah

Flying in from heaven to say thank you HQ for honoring me today and picking my diary about pink ribbons today. I am thrilled that you liked my poem and most important that we all remember those that had breast cancer like me and have not survived & all that have this horrible cancer still fighting to live cause it takes so many.
Thank you friends for honoring me today too, for my gifts and comments, you can honor me more by telling someone that kitties do get breast cancer and remind all how important it is to get girl kitties fixed before they have kittens and are younger than 6 months cause their changes of getting cancer go up if you don't. Please check your kitties for lumps, it could safe their life!
Thank you too for all my friends that have my bracelet and they are educating friends and pet parents about cancer in kitties. I honor you all everyday cause if not for you me and Mom could not keep on fighting the fight against breast cancer.
Remember too when you see a butterfly it is from heaven sent with love! Wear pink, be proud & celebrate life!
Sending angel hugs and love

A silent killer with no face.
A thief within the night.
A constant battle for my life.
A bitter evil fight
The scars reminded me of the day
It knocked at my souls door.
It tried to rob me of my strength
It left me on the floor.
To survive, I had to sacrifice
My mammary glands and some of my fur
It showed no pity as it snatched
These things without a care
I started to give up my fight
I felt I could take no more
Then God reached down and
Gently picked me up off the floor.
He wiped my face and blew my nose
Just like my Mom use to do.
He said don’t cry my kitty
For I have things in store for you
I did not bring you all this way
To leave you high and dry.
I love you and you are my kitty
So hold your head up high.
There is nothing that I cannot fix,
No pain I can’t erase.
Have faith and know that I am here
There is nothing you can’t face!
So then I threw my paws up high
And gave God all his praise!
For my soul has been uplifted
And my Spirit has been raised!
I fought this fight with all my might
For God said that Victory was mine!
I fought the fight and my soul lives on
God put me here and took me away
Now I fight to help other kitties that have breast cancer
& to spread the word!
That is the purpose I came to earth, not just to love Mom
To help others …my soul lives on!
Angel hugs and love, I purr and pray for all the kitties fighting breast cancer.

Today I flew down from my angel butterfly garden to be with Mom, as every year this time she goes in to have her mammogram. It is a rainy day here and gloomy but that didn't stop Mom from going in. To her it is important to have this done more so now that she went through this with me having the horrible breast cancer. I may not be human but it does as you all know affect us kitties as well.
So Mom checks in and see that in the lobby they have ladies sitting there talking to other ladies cause it is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH! so with me on Moms shoulder whispering in her ear I am with you lets tell these ladies about kitties getting breast cancer too...Mom is wearing her bracelet as she always does, showed the 2 ladies and she told them about me.
They were not aware that animals, especially us kitties get breast cancer. They were shocked, Mom told them my story and what I went through. Mom told them about me coming back as the white/black butterfly on the day I made my journey. One lady said she got chills and had tears in her eyes, which of course made Mom get tears too. Mom felt good about telling these ladies all about me and kitty breast cancer.
These ladies gave Mom some breast cancer items, she will take a picture of them to share. The ladies are with the Rose Volunteer Program here and they are going to share my story at their meeting to let others know that indeed kitties do get BREAST CANCER!
Then they called Moms name to go in and get her mammogram done. The lady tech that does this had pink everywhere and sayings about breast cancer and she had pink butterflies everywhere. Mom gave her the bracelet she was wearing to add to her collection of pink and breast cancer items...so now I am in this special room where many many women will come in and see my bracelet, again we are spreading the word.
Today was a good day for Mom, she left there feeling good and knowing that once again she has told my story and is spreading the word. As Mom drove home in the rain I continued to be with her and watch over her. Sadly it was time for me to fly back to my garden, I whispered sweet loves to my Mom and told her a job well done...she still fights for me and so many other kitties! I love you Mom always and forever!
So remember Moms make sure you get your yearly Mammogram like my Mom did today and remember to check your kitties for any lumps...
Sadly flying away sending you all angel hugs and butterflies from heaven

October as all of you know is Breast Cancer awareness for humans, but we like to say it is also Kitty Breast Cancer Awareness...please remember to check your kitties for any lumps and if you do find any get them to the Vet ASAP...one never knows what that lump will be...you could save their life. Remember too to let others know that kitties especially girls get breast cancer and most do not survive. We are purring and praying for the kitties fighting this horrible awful cancer that claims way too many kitties.
Also we still have some bracelets let us know if you would like one and we will send you one so you can help us to continue our fight and to spread the word.
Tallulah My Hero
So tender and so gentle, as only she could be
For all that she believed in, as far as we could see
Was living life and having fun and don’t forget her love
For “angel” does describe her best along with her white butterfly.
She said to laugh and cry with joy, and don’t forget to sing
All the songs she’d taught me, like the wind beneath my wings.
That was her favorite song you know, so sing it out my friends
But don’t regret that she is gone, she hears you loud and clear!
Two years ago we learned what hero means, she’d be so very proud
To see her name so brightly lit from atop her great pink cloud.
She watches closely over us and guides us through each day
So please remember my Tallulah, each and every time you see a butterfly!
Not one of us would disagree, she left us way to soon
The only time we see her now is through the big bright moon.
Her legacy lives on today and those who knew her boast
That life and love and laughter too, are what she loved the most.
Thank you to all of our friends who have helped spread the word about Kitty Breast Cancer Awareness...those who helped us raise money for research, those who have walked in the breast cancer walks carry Tallulah's name honoring her, and for HQ asking me to tell her story that will soon be here on Catster!
Tallulah is always with me, she sends you all her love, butterflies from heaven with lots of angel hugs.
QT and Mom

WOW what a surprised to see all of the earthly balloons go up up and up into the sky so many to see and they arrive at the rainbow bridge with my name on the tags from my special friends from earth....What a pleasure and a sight to be seen, I was catching them, then hugging them because they were from my friends who remember me...I loved reading the tags to see who they were from you my special friends.
There was much happiness here at the rainbow bridge because off all the special balloons sent to us your special angels...we had a balloon party and then we sent angel heaven balloons back to you....we sent them with angel love.
Thank you to all my special wonderpurr friends who thought of me and sent me balloons with your special messages and pretty little pictures..

Hello my friends coming to earth for a brief time to tell all of our friends that there is no place like catster when our Moms are in need of support and love.
We have been so busy at the Rainbow Bridge with so many of our friends making their journey, now I am not going to make everyone sad today, no that is not why I am here.
With so many going to the RB it brings up how much Catster helps our Moms, it sure did help me & Mom when I was sick and then when me & Mom made the decision to let me go. I was ready and Mom knew it....sometimes Moms hearts are hurting so much that they don't realize that we are giving them signs, then they question as even my Mom did if they made the right choice.
No one will ever know if it was, but we do not hate we only know love and the saying is if you love me let me go! well when your Moms make that decision to let us go it is because you love us...no questions asked.
The best part is that Moms help those in need, they comfort our Moms and we all know what they are going through. Us kitty angels watch from above, open your hearts you will feel us there helping Moms. We hear the tears, the sadness and the emptiness. We are here to help as our Moms are here. One way we help is we send new kitties to our families to help heal their hearts. Some will get the message sooner than others, but look at all of our friends, my family included that have opened their hearts to another kitty, sometimes 2...
Our Moms hearts are so full of love and lets face it our Moms & Dads are crazy cat people and how could they not open their hearts to kitties. I sent Mom Tu Two and one of her first kitties to come to RB sent Mom Xena...so Moms that have just lost your precious furbaby soon you will open your heart, you will hear the message and soon you will have a new kitty to help heal your heart and put a smile on your face.
This kitty will never replace your beloved furbaby, but us kitty angels know that we will send you that special kitty that we want you to have and you will open your heart. Life on earth goes on, even if our Moms still cry, Mine does, she misses me everyday, but so many kitties need our crazy cat Mom and Dads love...cause kitties have special powers and you all know what I mean...yes powers beyond anything else.
This is the best place to be when Moms and Dads need the support & love...we know cause this is where Mom came, Mom knows she would never have got through that horrible time when she lost me...THANKS FRIENDS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND HELP when my Mom needed it....Now we are here for our friends in need...
Well my friends time for me to go back to heaven, so much to do, always busy sending butterflies to families from heaven...
THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE!
Angel hugs and love

PAW PRINTS IN THE STARS
I will always know you loved me. But it was time for me to go.
I was your soulmate, your companion, and your friend.
We meant more to one another than the world will ever know.
We were devoted to each other to the end.
So when you find that you are missing me,
Just listen to your heart, and you will know that I am never very far.
Each time you stand beneath the heavens, and look up to face the dark,
you will see my shining paw prints in the stars.
We loved each other from the start, I found a home inside your heart
because you opened it so wide to welcome me.
I hope you hold me there forever, even when we are apart. There's no place on earth where I would rather be.
We were wonderful together. Nothing else felt quite as right as lying quietly beneath your loving hand. Sharing cuddles in the night. Little rituals we grew to understand.
I have waited at the window, hoping you would be home soon, and I was glad when you would greet me at the door.
I loved sleeping in the sunshine of a winter afternoon, just a happy ball of fur upon the floor.
we have learned from one another. We have shared the precious lessons we would not have gotten if we were alone. And those lessons we have learned have each been turned into a blessing. and with each blessing, our two hearts have grown.
We've both learned patience, trust, and loyalty. We've both learned to forgive. We've learned that happiness can be a simple thing.
Little pleasures are the ones that have the greatest gift to give. A little mousie, catnip, a piece of string.
My water dish, my toys, my bed--the simple things I leave behind-they may remind you that you miss me every day.
So if you want to put them out of sight, I really wouldn't mind. It doesn't mean our love is being put away.
It's all right that you have spoiled me, fed me extra food. And yes, I slept with you every night. But then, it gave me joy to give you something in return even my last night with you.
I gave you comfort and companionship. You've never felt alone, because you knew that I was somewhere in the house. I gave you someone you could count on. When you needed me, you've known I'd be there, and there were never any doubts.
And now you know that I am somewhere else. A place of perfect peace. A happy home, where angels wait, above the blue. If you and I won't be together, this is where I want to be, with love forever, like the love I had with you.
I will always know you loved me. But it was time for me to say goodbye. I was your soulmate, your companion, and your friend. Now I am free to play forever in that place beyond the sky. A happy paradise, where life will never end. So when you find that you are missing me, just listen to your heart, and you will know that I am never very far.
Each time you stand beneath the heavens, look up to face the dark, you will see my shining paw prints in the stars.
Mom you are my hero and I am with you always. You honor me by continuing our fight and spreading the word about kitty breast cancer.
Thank you to all of my friends for always being here for me and Mom. Helping my Mom as time goes by with me not with her on earth to help her, we all know that Moms love us so much and this is truly that best place for others to help those that need the help.
I am with you all, watching over you and sending special remember me butterflies...so when you see that butterfly remember all of us angel kitties...and look into the sky for the glowing paw prints and you will know that it is your angel fur babies...
Angel hugs and love to my family and all of my friends. Thank you for remembering me today my 2nd Rainbow bridge day!

Oh my sweet precious Tallulah I can't believe you have been gone for 2 years today. I woke up with dread knowing that I lost you 2 years ago at 7am...I walked out to your grave I know you were there, I talked to you and thanked you for all of the wonderful memories I have of you.
It is all so clear to me as if I just adopted you, to see your cute little face and how white your fur was always.
You brought so much happiness into my life and a smile on my face. You had the cutest meow and expression on your face. How I miss your face and meow. I especially miss you sitting on my lap in the evenings and sleeping with me. Sometimes after I go to bed I feel the walking of a cat, I open my eyes and there is no cat on the bed, but I know you are there making yourself comfortable so you can watch over me and comfort me in my dreams...you were always there for me.
Two years is a long time and so much has changed, Catster isn't the same, so many of our friends have stopped coming, it saddens us and kitty friends have made their journey to the bridge..I know you are all playing and having fun waiting for the day we all join each of you.
I know you are always here with me, I feel you and I see the beautiful butterflies you send to me. I know you are busy helping so many other kitties in need.
I thank you too for showing me Tu Two that day on TV, she is so cute, funny and sweet. She has helped me to heal and has brought a smile to my face again, but know I am still sad that you are no longer here with me. You will be in my heart always our bond will never be broken, you left your glowing paw print in my heart & one day we will be reunited.
I feel sad that your Sweethearts Merry, Simba in UK and Scout don't get on catster much anymore or not at all...how I miss them all.
I am still fighting the fight, I will never stop my wish is for no kitties will ever get Breast Cancer again. I am so proud of you, you fought a good fight and to me you are a survivor! Even now that you are gone you are still loved by so many...
I am finally able to watch the videos I have of you, I smile and I cry, but I can watch them. I have been going through pictures and I am now putting them on your page.
Today even a sad day my sweet precious Tallulah I honor you, remember you with love. I will look into the heavens and see your shining paws.
Always in my heart and always remembered with so much love. I miss you my sweet girl.
