I have been at the bridge for a little more than 24 hours and I must say that the hardest part of this journey was seeing mommy cry when I left. In her heart, she knew my time was nearing. For two nights before my journey she rocked me for a long time at bedtime after she put all my siblings to bed and it was just me and her. She petted and stoked my fur and she told me how much she loved me and always would and that she was happy that I shared my life with her. She also told me how I might see a bright light and that I was NOT to be afraid of it. See, all of my life (at least the 11 years I spent with mommy) I have always been a sort of "scaredy cat." Mommy attributed it to my being abandoned twice before she adopted me. Reagardless of the reason, she told me not to be scared when my time came because my siblings Conner, Cole & Kayleigh would be there to greet me as well as a whole host of Catster friends who have journeyed before me. So, when she took me to the vet to have him help me make my journey, for the first time ever, I was NOT afraid. Mommy held me close and kept whispering in my ear until all I remember is falling asleep and almost immediately an all consuming bright light. I was blind when I made my journey but then I could see again. The colors were so vivid and bright and I ran across the Rainbow Bridge and just like mommy said, my siblings and friends were on the other side meowing and barking their greetings to me!!! Conner immediately gave me big, wet doggy kissies that about knocked me over!! Mommy is still sad but I hope she knows that I had a better life with her than I would have had without her.
