“God gave us our memories so that we might have Roses in December." a quote by J.M. Barrie. May the memories of your sweet Artie, the ones that can't help but bring a smile to your heart as you remember how your baby’s paw prints touched your life, be the ones that surround you this first Holiday Season without your beloved furbaby. My prayer for all of us this Joyous season, is that our babies will wrap up a special little sign for each one of us back here, and send it to us during this blessed season. May you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it the most....And may each love-filled memory you have of all your beloved fur-angels at the Bridge bring to your heart the very warmth and sunshine of the Rainbow itself. That's just one "gift" your baby-angels would want for you this season. Best wishes for you and your family this Holiday Season, Karen (Dusty, Momma, DJ & Patches mom)

Dear Raymond, what a lovely tribute to your beautiful boy, Artie. I'm glad you were able to adopt him and in doing so, you saved him and gave a life rich with love. I light this candle in remembrance of his precious life. Blessings, Rose

Raymond, so sorry to hear of your loss. Beloved Artie knew he was a very special cat and still is. You accepted, loved and cared for him until his last day with you on earth. He is at peace and is now an angel in heaven. He is smiling & watching from above and his spirit is at home with you, still being himself. I recently loss my beloved Carshion and I understand your pain and grieve. I know Artie & Carshion are now angels in rainbow meodows busy making new furry friends and waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge. For Beautiful Artie, Rest in peace, your dad created a loving memorial for you here at Rainbow Bridge and he misses you very much. I hope you like the hedge toy I left you. Carshion's mom, Carol.

Raymond, As a cat-lover I feel for you at the passing of your beautiful rescued cat, Artie. He reminds me of a semi-wild kitten I rescued from a wood-yard! Thank you for taking him in and for giving him a wonderful life with you. Ferals often make the most loving pets! It seems he passed nearly a year ago after 15 years. This is always such a sad time when our pets have to leave us for the next life. Cats have a way of winding themselves around our hearts and `owning` us like no other animal can. You have many precious memories of him and his amusing ways. You may be sure all the love he has given you will last forever - God`s gift to you - as you are to him. The bond between owners and their beloved pets is special and unbreakable and those humans who have never found it cannot understand why it affects animal-lovers so much when a pet leaves us. Your lives have been enriched for ever by such a wonderful friendship which will continue into Heaven - where Artie is waiting for you.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Artie. Please find comfort in knowing that Artie is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. On January 11, 2013, I lost my faithful friend Hannah who was a beautiful blue tick hound dog. On August 2, 2013 another one of my beautiful cats, Sammi, a black and white tabby, went to Rainbows Bridge. April 9, 2014, Maci, my English Bulldog passed over to Rainbows Bridge. Maci and Hannah were best friends. I am sure that Artie and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

For sweet Artie, I know that during your lifetime you gave Raymond much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photo and reading what Raymond wrote for and about you it is obvious that you came from a very warm and loving home. Artie I have another wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and although he is a little dog he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Raymond, I just visited Artie's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. I am sure if asked, Artie would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Artie. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom)

Raymond- Artie truly made your life entertaining with his cute antics and many monikers, as described so beautifully in his tribute. We never forgot those we have come to know and love so deeply. May your heart continue to heal each and every day.

Dear Artie, how purrfectly handsome you are. Please go to the Bridge and purr your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the heart of your daddy who miss you so much, and he will send his love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Raymond, your world has lost a very special furpurrson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Artie, along with Duke and Dusty, is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May their sweet love continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Artie, Duke and Dusty will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at

Artie I am sorry for your loss. Raymond loves you and misses you very much. My Perseus went to Rainbow Bridge when he was 14. There are no more aches or pains. No rain only sunshine. Running and playing all day with the other furbabies. One day we will join them for all eternity at Rainbow Bridge.

Hello, handsome Artie, welcome to the meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Daddy loves and misses you so...he made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to help Duke and Dusty welcome you and be a playmate to chase colorful butterflies and trade kitty love headbumps. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind so Daddy hears your sweet meows and purrs and feels a soft touch of your kitty paw in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until he comes to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask he not be so sad but treasure your memory and remember you're curled up beside your pawprints deep in his heart forever. Play meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Daddy so he feels the warmth of your love surround him and knows you miss him too and are with him. Soar among clouds on silvery new angel wings to watch over Daddy always, beloved sweet Cary Grant. Pressy's Grandpa

I am so sorry for your loss of Artie. My heart goes out to you as I know you are struggling so with the loss of your precious baby. Your world has lost a very special baby, family member and friend, but the heavens have welcomed home a very special soul. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. I know you had a special relationship with Artie that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Artie and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Artie continue to warm your heart and I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your love will bind you together forever. Peace and blessings to you. My precious Bailey left our world December 5th, 2013 and we miss her so. Please visit my Bailey at

Dear Raymond, My prayers are with you on the passing of your precious Artie. He was a beautiful Boy and obviously deeply loved. You gave him such a wonderful life and It is not easy losing our loving companions. I completely understand the pain and grief that you are experiencing and you are not alone. Would like to share this poem read during Princess Diana's memorial. "Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity." (Henry Van Dyke) Hope that the many memories of Artie will continually provide you with comfort, he will forever live in your heart and memories. If you would like, please feel free to visit my Baby's memorial. Sending love and light, Nelson
