Memories of Jacy & Abby
Dear Jacy,
You were my special angel from day one. I will never forget the day we met. My friend said she had too many cats and that you were going to have to go to the pound. I wasn't fond of cats but I agreed to take you on a trial basis. I fell in love with you the day you moved in. You taught me that it wasn't scary to love someone.
We had 6 wonderful years together, and you helped me choose your daddy.
I love you Jacy and I know you will be waiting for me on Rainbow Bridge.
Today I got a tatoo on my right arm with 4 balloons floating up to heaven and a letter of your name in each balloon. It helped me to heal a bit.
Love Mommy and Daddy
November 2006
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so you know what that means ... just a couple of days latter is momma's birthday. I miss you my friend and bought you an ornament and treat bag like any other year. Please come and tell me happy birthday ... momma
My angel,
I know it has been a while. I wanted to thank you for taking your baby sister Maggie into your wings. I hurt so bad when you died that I needed Maggie to help me through that time. Her love and devotion to me got me through the darkest times. Now I am without both of you, but you will always have a place in my heart!. I love you Jacy and I miss you. Come and visit when you can...momma. PS, Abby say's hello. I have added Zendie to your site. She was a sweet cat who was broken and bruised long before we met. I rest easy knowing I gave her a good life filled with love. Rest easy at the bridge my friend.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Be sure you are at the party tonight. There will be whipped cream and presents!!! I love you my first fur baby.

Today is July 12 and you have been at the bridge for a year now. I just wanted you to know baby Jacy that I love you very much. I can laugh and smile at your sisters but there will always be a sad place in my heart for your loss. Now though, in our new home I will have a room dedicated to you and your sisters. That will make me feel closer to you. You haven't visited in a while so it would be nice to see you my first baby. Momma loves you and misses you so much.


My dear Jacy,
I still remember the first time I held you,
So very soft you were,
You cuddled in and we knew,
You would be forever in my arms.

My sweet Jacy,
You always looked out for me,
Ate dinner with me,
Slept with me,
I knew ,
You would be forever in my arms.

My spoiled Jacy,
You were my girl,
And whipped cream you liked,
It was always in the house,
You would be forever in my arms.

My friend Jacy,
You were so sick and frail,
I knew the time had come,
I sent you off to Rainbows Bridge,
But without a doubt I knew,
You would be forever in my arms.

My angel Jacy,
You never left my heart,
I feel you by my side,
Rest in peace my friend,
You will be forever in my arms.

Three years ago today I made the decision to send my best friend to the Rainbows Bridge so she could be whole and happy again. Even though it was the hardest thing I'll ever do I know in my heart she has never left my side. ... Misty

On This Day

On this day,
Four years ago,
A decision I had to make,
My best friend was hurt and tired,
I truly thought my heart would break.

On this day,
Four years ago,
I decided to give her to god,
I prayed for her health and happiness,
I felt a piece of me die.

On this day,
Four years ago,
My Jacy entered the bridge,
She regained her health and happiness,
I swore I could not live.

My Jacy lives in my heart,
She is never far away,
That pain turned into love,
For she watches over me from up above.

Jacy talks to my heart on a regular basis. I am hoping this may help some of the newer losses.

Dear Jacy, last night daddy found this site and read all I had written aloud. I cried like crazy but I could feel you with me. I know you are never far away.
Say hello to White Boots for me and fly safe my girl.
December 31, 2012
It has been so long since I have been to see you, but you have never left my heart. I love you more today than I did yesterday. I will be back soon my girl.

My dearest Jacy,
Your sister Abby came to the bridge yesterday. I pray that you were there to greet her with all of your friends. I love you my girl, take care of your sister ... Momma

Well my girl I have finished Abby's residency. I am sure both of you were with me to do that task. It always makes me feel better when it is done. Fly close to her for a bit and make sure she doesn't get lost. You will forever be my first baby, Momma
Jacy, your brother Scooby joined you at the bridge today, greet him with soft paws and little meows. 4-27-2016
My love, 11 years ago today I sent you on your journey to everlasting love. The pain was so deep that day that I didn't think I would ever heal. What I have learned is that the ache will always be there, but you learn to work through it. You will always be my first love and reside in my heart where I can talk to you whenever I please.

As I sit here and remember you I find it hard to believe so much time has passed.
In April of 2006 we got transferred to Oregon through my husband's job. We had moved with my old lady kitty Jacy. In my plight to hold on to Jacy forever I convinced my husband that she needed a play mate to keep her healthy. In May of that year we found Abby. With the other cats we have found in various shelters I knew they were the fit for our family and they came along willingly. Abby was different from the very start but she fit in well.
It didn't take long for her to realize that Jacy got special wet food and they became fast friends. Jacy died in July and Abby was sad right along with me. It didn't take long for me to see that Abby was a social cat that needed other cats around so we found Maggie in a shelter and Hollie also to complete our family.
We never knew if it was Maggie or Hollie but one was weaned too soon and Abby started making milk for both of them. I was still in a heavy mourning of Jacy, but I would watch Abby with these two rowdy kittens and marvel her strength and ability to be a mom.
In January of 2007, Maggie died suddenly leaving all of us in shock, she was less than a year old. Momma Abby rolled with the punches though and welcomed Ari into our home. We thought that when Ari moved in Abby would quit making milk. But no that wasn't the case, she continued milking for Hollie and Ari for years.
Then one day I noticed a shift in her, all of the sudden she no longer made milk and the other two cats were on their own. It must have been about five years she let them nurse.
When I would get migraines Abby was my go to cat. She would sit on my stomach in a dark room purring quietly and kneading. This helped me relax enough to manage through the migraine.
In March of 2015 we noticed that Abby had lost a lot of weight quickly so I took her in for a check -up. We learned that she had Hyperthyroidism and that her pulse was a little high. We got her on a plan and thought she was doing well until the day came that she wasn't feeling well. Abby died the next day of congestive heart failure.
I held Abby as she took her last labored breath and sent her to Jacy who I am sure was waiting for her at the bridge.
March 19, 2016 Abby - It has been almost a year and I still miss you so much. Just know that I love you and look for you in my dreams nightly. Come for a visit my sweet Abigail.
March 6, 2017 I am a little early this year my friend. In my heart I know you have not left my side, but I am having trouble seeing you these days. As I struggle through life I find strength in knowing you are there. We have a new kitten Rhaquie (Rocky) that you would just adore. She is 11 months old now and fighting Ari for the queen of the castle honor. She just may make it! Life is just not the same without you my friend. Enjoy the everlasting sunshine.
April 5, 2018 Hello my momma kitty. Just a quick check in to let you know I love you. I see you once in a while in my dreams, thank you for that. Our kitty family is still the same with Rhaquie being youngest and Ari being oldest. Sit under the rainbow for me my kitty.
