I found this poem and it pretty much is how we found each other 3 years ago:
I found a Kitten
At the city pound,
A tiny creature
My hands wrapped around.
I held it up
Against my cheek,
And I could feel
Its wild heart beat.
It touched me
With its icy nose,
We liked each other
From head to toes.
There are two more-I think they fit too:
MEMBER OF THE FAMILY-Hope Harrington Kolb
What would I do without you
My precious, furry friend?
Part mischief, but all blessing
And faithful to the end
You look at me with eyes of love;
You never hold a grudge..
You think I'm far too wonderful
To criticize or judge
It seems your greatest joy in life
Is being close to me...
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human,
But I'm glad it isn't true...
The world would be a nicer place
If folks were more like you.
A few short years are all we have;
One day we'll have to part...
But you, my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.
WHO SAYS THERE ARE NO ANGELS?-Thomas M. Mohr
Have we ever stopped to wonder
Throughout our life long trip
Why we meet certain pets
Just once and then.............
Then they're gone as if in to Heaven
No more do they grace our door
Yet an inspiration lingers
It's there forevermore.
These pets were such blessings
They're here and then they're gone
They embraced our lives immensely
For short periods, not for long.
It hurts to see them gone
But there's beauty all the more
We shared a moment of glory
And the memories will long endure.
But the effect is forever
They've helped us on our way
Could they be our guiding angels
That God gave to us one day?
I didn't think today would be so hard Indy, but I am a teary eyed, red-faced mess. I miss you and love you.
Happy Gotcha Day with all your wonderful Angel furriends at the Bridge, my Angel Indy.
Thank yous are in order! Thank you to:
Finney, Lacey and Sweet Angel Alex fur the Heart
Colette, Samsara and their Angel sisfurs fur the Acorn
Dusty Miller fur the Heart
Monster fur the Rainbow Star

It's Indy here, from tha Bridge. Wow, I can't believes I am missing all the important days back home with my furmily! It would be my 3rd Gotcha day at home this Thursday, the 27th. I know Mommy right now is feeling very sad about it, only 'cause I should still be there fur my 3rd Gotcha Day, since I was gotted not too long ago, but things happens sometimes and she knows that even though my time was cut short, that we was both lucky to has been gotted by each other fur the time we did have.
It's gonna be Halloween too! Lucky me, I don't have to get dressed up by my mom anymore MOL! One year she tried ta get me ta wears a Frankencat hat, and the next year she had me wears a Bat collar, which I didn't mind exactly. She even made me wears the Hello Kitty bow tie so I looked like a chippendales cat MOL! Here at the Bridge though we can play dress up fur pretend, so it's not so bad. Plus, we is all Angels anyways, so it's like we got a costume already insides and outsides of us.
I've been watching ovfur my sisfur too ta makes sure she is ok. She is doing good-She has officially made my cat tree her own and loves ta hangs on the top perch. Whenevfur Harrison has gone on it he would take the second one-good boy! They are still workin on their relationship, so I have been trying ta be a good Watch cat to make sure it's not too awfuls. I decided ta fly ovfur there the other day just ta keeps a check out and showed myselfs ta Harrison-Mom knew I was there I thinks 'cause he kept looking up and following something, but there was nothing there ta sees.
It's gonna takes time, I keep telling Mommy that in her ears when she is not listening. Oh and ya knows, I was looking out ovfur her last night and guess what! Her furrriend found the iiiitiest, bitttiest kitten. Thank goodness she was determined ta be found-she kept meowing and meowing under a window and so Mom's furriend went out and took her in, just in time 'cause it's all rainy there today. Mom was gonna help watch ovfur the kitten (she did look like me afturall) fur a few days 'cause her furrriend doesn't lives in LA full times, but luckily, Lucky (that's her name!) found a home last night. So Mommy is gonna gives her new pawrent a couple of the kitten stuffs that me and Kitty outgrew.
I guess that's all fur now. Ya know, with the holidays coming up I know all us Angel kitties are gonna have to work hard to send love and comfurrrts to our families 'cause this is the toughest time usually. Tha only thing I am gonna miss this year is the Pen Paws Secret Santa! LAst years I got tha best gifties from Guido, tha Italian kitty and his furmily MOL! Akshully, my favfurite ball evfur was one of those gifties, so Mommy put it with me and my collars in my special box, tha one with my earth Angel dust in it. I'm glad she saved that just fur me, like my blankie. It reminds me how specials I am, and Mommy too.

Awww furrriends, it's me from tha bridge. I am just so proud of my mommy right now, even if she is feeling awfuls about it, but if you noticed, I finally has my Angel title in my name-I sent Mom a purrr and whisper and said it was time. She's been avoiding it so long, maybe hoping in some way that it still wasn't really true? I don't know akshully. But today she just changed it. Who would'a known that something that is "so simples" as just adding Angel to your name, would be so hard and so emoshionals fur a purrrson? I didn't think it would be, but that's 'cause I am loving being an Angel! It's so kewl! A'course I will ALWAYS miss my Mommy and sisfur and my favfurite blankie and my water fountain and my tinsel fuzzy ball that I got fur Christmasssy in the Pen Paws secret Santa, but I'm still where I is s'posed ta be right now.
So, I guess it's really officials, my angelcatdom. Purrrlease send a purrr to my mommy fur her weepies, and to my furrriends who are sick and not well and their furmilies-you don't even needs ta know evfurryone's name, just in your heart know you is sending purrrrs and stuff out and it will be grabbed onto and pulled in really close to any fur's heart.

Whoawheee! DDP again! That's swell! Ya shure get lots a special days here at the Rainbow Bridge, but it's even more specials when ya gets ta share the specials with your furrriends and furmily! Even my good earth furrriend Tink is Diary of the Day! Concats!
Tink gave me a pirate flag too and yr right! Meow like a Pirate day would've been Sooo much fun! But I gots ta pawretend here too and even gots ta walks de plank fur fun and we all took turns making the skurvey blokes a'dooms and troubles walk it but ya know what! When we all went down we didn't land inta shark infested waters! We landed in clouds full'a Catnip vapors! Holy Catzowie! MOL!
I didn't means ta make any furs sad yesterfuday with my diary. So many good furriends are here at the Bridge and so many kittens are borned with new spirits from us Angels, young ones like me and even some of tha old fuurts! Ya know what I think though! I think if our pawrents look realllllly close into our eyes when we is kittens or whenever we come to our furever homes, you can tells what kinda Angel Spirit ya gots! I know fur a fact that Harrison is an old one-'cause he's got tha air about him and the passshionate eyes of an old soul...kinda likes Sean Connery! Mol! MOL! Kitty gots a mix a'souls and I think that's why she has two different color eyes and two different purrrsonalities sometimes MOL! Kinda likes Elizabeth Taylor or Scarlett O'hara!(vivien leigh anyways MOL!)...or Norma Jean n Marilyn! a gorgeous lady on tha outside but a diva within MOL! I think that's where she draws her inspurrrashions! Or ebineeeezer scrooge! MOL!
Me, I'm just a luver with tha souls of advenshurrres! That's why no name worked until I was called Indiana!
Purrrs and bonks,

Evfurry month around this time I think of my mommy and watch over her just a little bit more (sometimes there's so much fin at the bridge I don't watch as careful!) 'Cause around this time was when I got so sick and made my final journey to the Rainbow Bridge. It's been so long and so short a time, at the same time! I need ta be better about visiting her in her dreams, but I am always making sure ta sprinkle my angel magic into her thoughts. Sometimes I feel sad, because I wanna be home and sleeps with her like I used to, and I feel so much how much she wants that too and I secretly use my angel-soft paws to touch her cheek and give her kisses when she needs them the most. I've been feeling her 'moshions lately and fur some reason she is starting ta feels so guilty again! Mom! I thought you was through with that! I'm GOOD! I'm Happy! And I gots so many good furriends here on the days when I miss you and Kitty the mostest!
My furrriend Alex is a DDP today and I wrotes a special note on her picshure of how beautiful she is! (Ps-all the Angels here are Beautiful, even if they didn't looks so good befure they came) and she had ta remind my mommy what a good Angel boy I am. Mommy, I am! I'm so good! I'm better than good! I'm an Angel!
So please don't be so sad Mommy. I know it wasn't your fault I got so sick and each day that goes by will get better. I am always with you. And wow! Harrison is so big! He's my messener a'loves. Don't think maybe its a mistakes he's there. He was brought to you special from me 'cause I knew you would be the best.

Another day has gone, I'm still all alone How could this be you're not here with me
You never said goodbye, someone tell me why Did you have to go and leave my world so cold?
Everyday I sit and ask myself How did love slip away Something whispers in my ear and says That you are not alone, for I am here with you Though you're far away, I am here to stay But you are not alone, for I am here with you Though we're far apart, you're always in my heart But you are not alone 'Lone, 'lone, why, 'lone
Just the other night, I thought I heard you cry Asking me to come and hold you in my arms I can hear your prayers, your burdens I will bear But first I need your hand then forever can begin
Everyday I sit and ask myself How did love slip away Something whispers in my ear and says That you are not alone, for I am here with you Though you're far away, I am here to stay But you are not alone, for I am here with you Though we're far apart, you're always in my heart For you are not alone
Oh whisper three words and I'll come runnin' And I, and girl you know that I'll be there, I'll be there
You are not alone, for I am here with you Though you're far away, I am here to stay
You are not alone, for I am here with you Though we're far apart, you're always in my heart
You are not alone, for I am here with you (You are not alone) (I am here with you) Though you're far away, I am here to stay (Though you're far away) (You and me) For you are not alone, for I am here with you (You are always in my heart) Though we're far apart, you're always in my heart.

This is a very belated thank you fur my DDP honor the other week! I has to thank all my furrriends fur sending me messages and rosettes and even the kewl pic I have on my page! And thanks to:
Sofie fur the Ice Cream!
Tabatha fur the Heart!
Misha (an angel) and her angel sisfur and furmily fur the Rainbow!
Skippy fur the Watermelon!
Hooch fur the Heart!
and Monida fur the Heart!
It's touch being an Angel, with all the kitties coming up to the bridge. I know I've written it befur, but I nevfur realized how many furs passed each and evfurry day, but I feel lucky ta be a part of the welcoming committee here with all the other Angels and my special Angel furrriends.
I've been keeping watch on my furmily though everyday, because I miss them so much and just because I was always a curious kitty! MOL! I miss all the head pats I used to get when Mommy had furrriends ovfur-so I guess I got my welcoming training way befur the Bridge because I always made sure that everyone said hello to me furrrst (it's so true!) But well, at least I am among all my angel furrriends and the Ceiling Cat, who is so nice and sweet!
So, I guess I am just remembering all the things in my lifes and now in my Angelhood and am so happy fur evfurrything. And I know last night Mommy had some weepies fur me, but I sent my adopteee, Harrison, a message to give extra loves and he did. He gave Mommy the best neck nuzzles last night and they had a good long chat too about my sisfur, and I think he is gonna listen! I told him he should 'cause Mommy does know what's best fur us afturall (even if she doesn't think she does!) and Mommy told him he needs ta give Kitty some time and patience 'cause she can be shy, but that if he does gives her some more time, that she will come around. I mean, she did fur me in the furrrst week and even when I would chase her ta play and she didn't want to, she still came around later and washed my head fur me in the places I couldn't reach myselfs. So, I hope he listens!
I miss them though a lot, and I know they miss me-I am not an Angel with a huge mission like some of my furrriends (like Alex and QT!) -but I certainly has a message and it's that we has ta be happy and thankful and just love love love!

Angels are the guardians of hope and wonder,
The keepers of magic and dreams.
Angels watch over you wherever you go,
Keeping each day perfect
And promising a bright tomorrow
Wherever there is love
An angel is flying by.
Your guardian angel knows you inside and out
and loves you just the way you are.
Angels keep it simple and always travel light.
Remember to leave space in your relationships
so the angels have room to play
Your guardian angel helps you find a place
when you feel there is no place to go.
Whenever you feel lonely,
A special angel drops in for tea
Angels are with you every step of the way
and help you soar with amazing grace
after all, we are all angels in training.
All we have to do is spread our wings and fly.
I am an angel, a guardian angel and will always be with you!

This is cute and specials, and is exactly how I lived my life with my Mommy! If only all kitties were lucky enuff to has these prayers to share in their homes! But as an Angel, I am workin hard to make sure that I can helps as many kitties as pawsibble!
A Kitty's Prayer:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
My Mommy's bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove,
My human being can hardly move!
I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight,
And here is where I pass the night.
No one disturbs me or dares intrude,
Till morning comes and "I want food!"
I sneak up slowly and begin,
to nibble on my human's chin.
She wakes up quickly,
I have sharp teeth-
I'm a kitty, don't you see?
For the morning's here
and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs and holds me tight!
And shares her bed with me all through the night!
A Cat's Bedtime Prayer:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And some cushions, soft and nice.
For grocery bags where I can hide,
Just like a tiger, crouched inside!
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back.
For window sills all warm and bright,
And shadows to explore at night.
I pray I'll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule.
To NEVER tell the humans that,
This world is really ruled by cats!

I am smiling from afar today because I was chosen as a DDP and the news was broken ta me by my angel buddy, Buddie, and his furmily! Catster didn't even tell me MOL! And then my furrriend Tabatha made my perfect pic, thank you so much! And I even gets ta share the honor with my good furrriend Skippy!!!! Concats to you too!
Things are pretty good at the Rainbow Bridge, kinda the same, though it's the saddest when we have to welcome new kitties, young and old into our paws. It's happy fur us because we can help them and welcome them and evfurry fur here gets along, but it's so sad when we watch ovfur the furmiles, sad meowmies and daddies and kiddies...Even orphan kitties has someone that is mourning, even if it's just the nature around where he or she was trying to live their lifes.
So yes, while things are good, things can also be so sad too. But being an Angel has pawsitives too 'cause even though it's not tha same as comfurting our furmilies in purrrson, we can still send loads of love and comfurrrts to them all the time, and I do! Evfurryday! And so do my furrriends here too! It's like this-my furrriend here Alex(such a purrrty angel!) was telling me, 'cause she is so smarts, that whenevfur our furmily gets a thought about us, whether it's a sad one or a happy memory, it's the Rainbow Bridge magic at works! Just like how we can visits in dreams and our fursiblings sometimes can chase us around, though our pawrent's can't see!
...See, our Essence is still there-it's awl arounds! It's in the trees, the airs, the blankies, the floors, the ceilings! Our fur is still squished in-between tha cushions and our pawprints are furevfur stamped on hearts. That's how we is always around. And sometimes it can go even furthur! Like with Alex's mommy! All those heart memories and essence surrounding her has helped Alex ta be a celebrity and spokescat fur sick kitties, like me, who had tummy boo-boos. That's a lot of love and spirit surrounding tha world!
Wow, I nevfur thoughts I had so much ta says until I am done MOL! I guess I is like my mommy, but I is a mewwwerbox! MOL! But it's awl fur a purpose!
Anyfur, I am gonna go celebrates this special day by making a visit to my mommy since I know she misses me a lot, and I'm gonna check in on my sisfur too and Harrison...He is doing a superbmeowlis job a'cuddling with Mommy, that's fur sure, he's just gotta settles in a little more I thinks.
Love and Bonks and purrrs,
