We still miss Opie so much. He was a beautiful cat with a sweet heart, but he died from Chron's disease when he was nine years old. He has been gone about a year. We keep thinking, "OK, you've been gone long enough, please come back"....cryhug

hug Our sympathies on the loss of your Opie Thunderbear. Our Mom still wishes I could come back but I sent her two wonderful kitties to be her babies. She'll never forget me; I'm the reason she loves Siamese mix kitties.

Crossing Over

I can see a Rainbow

The sun shines after rain

They say they send you Rainbows

When they cross the Bridge again

Because you see they bound between the worlds

Dance and play beyond the veil

Because mysterious is the Spirit

That wears those ears and tail

You may feel her in those moments

When she'd greet you at the door

For she can play in good health now

And skid across the floor

Her playmates yes they see her,

They meow at unseen form

For in this very moment

She's waiting to be reborn

As perhaps another kitten

Who will tap with playful paw

And gaze at you with emerald eyes

To tell you what she saw

That yes there is a Rainbow Bridge

Filled with fields of Clover

And there is really nothing to it

Coming to and Crossing Over

My mommy wrote this poem abut my cousin who went to rainbow bridge not long ago.
Mommy wanted to say how sorry she was, and we are too. We are purring for you...

OH that last line just resonates so much with me. "Okay, you've been gone long enough now, please come back". That's exactly what usually happens even when losing a human person. The first year is kind of like a dream you think you'll wake up from. The second year is usually harder. It was for me! Her second anniversary hit me super hard. We understand, this is definitely normal grieving and it's so hard. hug

We have no words, just sweet soft purrrrs, and tears we shed in Opie's honor... hug


I may meow to- you if you're- worthy

We know how you feel....our meowmy lost us in Hurricane Katrina, and still misses us. But we sent her some other kitties to help fill the hole in her heart.

Sending soft paw pats, purrs and hugs.

Virgo, we saw your story a month ago, and could hardly BREATHE just reading it! Not surprised your momma is still traumatized! We put her on our daily purrayer list, and mom & I purray for her every morning, that she will be able to move on and trust again. Heaven needed all 5 of you to teach all those oldtimers up there what to do with their newly re-kittenized bodies!
Our thoughts & purrayers are also with Opie Thunderbear's family. You never forget their goodness, and they are each so special in their own different ways. So generous & purrfectly unconditional with their love & forgiveness! Think of how lucky we are to get to have them! For however long, or short, it would never be long enough! Luv, Tinkkitty
