Dear Amy & Bill, What a gorgeous fur baby Sambuka was. After reading your journal entries, it is obvious she brought such joy into your hearts. From what you have written, Oreo certainly misses her. We lost our fur baby, Bootsie, four years ago on September 15th. We have two new kitty cats, one whose name happens to be Sambuca (after my husband's favorite liquor!lol). I know that Bootsie and Sambuka are playing in the meadows at Rainbow's Bridge. Karen (Bootsie's mom)

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Sambuka. Please find comfort in knowing that Sambuka 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. I am sure that Sambuka and Spooky have become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Such a beautiful name to go with such a beautiful fur baby. I am so sorry for your loss. As long as your memories remain strong, your baby will always remain strong in your heart and soul. Sambuka's spirit will always be there to watch over you. Love is eternal and someday you will be reunited with your fur baby at the Bridge. I know my babies and Sambuka have met and are playing at the bridge having a great time. I look forward to seeing them again. Love Nancy, Commander Bun Bun, Mr. B & Lilly ( please read their stories from the registry, maybe leave a note, it would mean a lot to me )

Welcome to the bridge are you today? You are going to make many friends at the bridge & there's so much for you to do. You get to chase lizards & take long naps in the sun. And I hear they have the best catnip around. Isn't that great? Make sure you send your mommie & daddy lots of purrs so they know you are OK. To Amy & Bill...we are sorry for your loss. Hold your memories close to your hearts until you see your precious Sambuka again.

My deepest sympathies to you on your loss. I do know what it is like to lose a loved one, whether Human or one of our special, furry babies. Having lost quite a few of my own and doing dog rescue, it is never easy. From my house of 8 furr babies, to yours, we wish you the best. If you ever need to write please do so. I will be there for you. They never leave us, we just don't see them any more. Their spirit lives on.

Sambuka, What a precious baby you were, always so loyal and loving. You taught and gave your family so much that they now know the true meaning of unconditional love. They long for the day to be able to hold you and to look into your eyes again. I know just how grateful you are for all of love and care in which they provided you. They miss you baby, so very much. I know that you don't want them to be sad for too long, but instead, be happy. For you are happy, content at peace and have been surrounded by so many others who also love and adore you, including my Shayna Girl and Leche.I extend my deepest condolences to you for the loss of Sambuka.I know just how painful it is to have lost your angel, for, I too, lost mine.Please vist my Shayna Girl at: and Leche at My thoughts and prayers are with you. Until we are with our babies again. Shayna and Leche's mommy, Lisa

Sambuka - You are a handsome guy with a distinct personality all of your own! Send mom and dad some signs, kisses from the Rainbow to let them know that you are safe, happy, healthy and will have many friends. Let Amy and Bill know that God has appointed you to be their guardian, protector to watch over them until they are called to the Bridge to join you one day. I will tell my Brande to find you and play with you. To Amy and Bill - I send my deepest regrets to you over the loss of Sambuka. I too lost my soulmate not long ago, see Brande - We know that God has promised we will be with our babies again one day. I leave this quote with you, "heaven is the only place where all the dogs and cats you have ever loved will come running to meet you." Author Unknown

Welcome to the Bridge! I know you're busy making friends, romping around playing, and laughing so hard you just can't stand it, but don't forget to take the time to let your family know you're okay and thank them for the wonderful life they gave you...

Hello, handsome Sambuka, welcome to the forever sunny meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mom and Dad love and miss you so...they made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase sunbeams and rainbows and share kitty love headbumps in the sunshine. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind to Mom and Dad so they hear your meows and purrs and feel a soft touch of your kitty paw in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until they come to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask they not be so sad but remember you're curled up beside your pawprints in their hearts forever. Play happy meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Mom and Dad so they feel the warmth of your love surround them and know you miss them too. Soar among clouds now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mom and Dad always, beloved Buka. Pressy's Grandpa

Sambuka, you are purrfectly gorgeous! Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your mommy and daddy who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Amy & Bill, your world has lost a very special furpurrson, and heaven has gained a very special soul. Buka is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as BG is watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet love continually nuzzle your hearts until then. Clare & Martha....Please visit BG at

You know how much Dad and I loved Sambuka, too. He was certainly unique and a character. Definitely not your usual cat. We know you miss him and yet you have great memories to cherish.
