To everyone who remembered me on my birthday even though I've crossed the Rainbow Bridge, I give all of you a big kitty angel THANK YOU! My spirit kitty eyes saw all the lovely roses, tulips, hearts, the bluebird, the birthday cake from Crystal, and the special gifts on my profile. Mom saw them too and was touched by everyone who remembered me, she said it was one of the brightest spots in the past few days. (The past few days were rough for our human Mom but things are getting better for her now.)
Although as we all know, us cats are wiser than humans, I still wish to share with everyone a few bits of wisdom my human mom shared with us when I was still on Earth.
When I was still an earthly kitty I remember my human Mom saying,
"Everytime we remember kitties who have crossed the bridge on their birthdays, it reminds us humans to give our living kitties the three things they need most from humans: patience, appreciation and understanding. It also reminds us humans that too many kitties lose their lives because of human failure to give them patience, appreciation, and understanding. Every time we remember a kitty on their rainbow bridge day it reminds us of all the kitties we have known who have crossed the bridge, and how privileged we were to have known those kitties! It reminds us of the kitties who need us humans to allow them to know what it's like to live in a good forever home, even if (like me, Hallie) that time in a good forever home turns out to be brief."
While I wish I could have gone to my good forever home earlier so I'd have had more good time on Earth before I crossed the Bridge, at least I had the privilege of knowing for a short time what it was like to be in a good loving forever home, where there was always enough to eat & drink, where touch meant comfort instead of pain, where there was genuine real love & caring,
So let me say to you humans, take the opportunity to give a needy kitty a good forever home, adopt an old cat from a shelter & give him or her the wonderful gift of at least a short time living knowing he or she is at last truly cared for and loved, trap and neuter that neighborhood feral, then continue feeding him or her under your porch/in your barn/etc and he/she will be healthier, happier, and not be contributing to the overpopulation problem. Let a kitty experience the greatest earthly life gift of having a good forever home while that kitty is still alive to experience it.
And to all you kitties who have already crossed the rainbow bridge & become angels/spirit kitties or who are getting ready to cross the rainbow bridge & become a spirit kitty too, remember to always comfort your humans with your spirit presence on your birthday, your gotcha day, your rainbow bridge day & any other days special to you & your families. Hearing your ghostly meow, catching a glimpse of you running across a hallway, feeling your gentle thud on the bed all will touch your humans hearts and let them know you are still with them. Your earthly kitty friends & family members also will benefit from your spirit presence even more because they can SEE you. I know I enjoy reminding my kitty family that even as a spirit kitty, when I appear and walk down a hallway, everyone who knows me had better step aside & give me the respect I deserve.
& BTW where can my other angel family members get wings? I think they look kinda naked without their angel wings & Mom tends to be shy about asking anybody about it so I'll just do it for her. After all, I'm a spirit kitty so she can't stop me now....

Hugs, Hallie, to your furmily as they missed you so much...but you are so thoughtfur to pay them your little visits.
Glad your birthday was fine.
We too wonder about those wings, we think there may be a group in the forums that does them...on Imikimi the site that meowmy uses to make pics such as the one we helped her make fur you, there are some winged frames...but not just nice plain ones.
Hallie You can put Your name on the list at Rainbow Bridge Angel Babies,of course I don't know how long it will take to get them. It seems there are very few Wing Makers on Catster. Every now and then someone comes along to make wings. My Mom wishes She could make wings but she doesn't have the programs on Her computer to do it.
What a pawsome entry! I don't know about the wings . . .
