You showed up on my porch just last Saturday, and I held you for only a few hours before you left for the Rainbow's Bridge. In those few hours I came to love you; A handsome, loving, furbaby who somehow lost his way in life. I know it had been a long time since you layed down on a warm chair or felt a gentle hand caressing your soft fur, yet you came to me with a trusting heart asking only to be loved and cared about. I truly wanted to save you, to see you put on weight and watch you run and play, but it was not to be in this life. Instead, I was blessed to love you to the Rainbow's Bridge. I can see you now, the way you were meant to be, with a strong, sleek, body and alert mind. I will never forget you. I wish that no animal would ever have to suffer as you did. Yet as long as there is suffering in the world, I pray to be called upon to do some small part to alleviate it. You were an answer to my prayer. I know that you are safe now, and there is no more suffering. Someday we will meet again.|
12-24-05 Merry Christmas little Sammi! I have thought about you so often. I love you, little furbaby. I wish you could have had many happy Christmas's in this life. I don't know if you even had one, but most likely you did not. When you hear the angels singing, it's because today is the day we celebrate Jesus's birth. I know you've already met Him. I know that you are now as healthy as you are loving. That matters so much to me, because you suffered so much in your short life. I want you to understand that I didn't want you to suffer anymore, and that is why I signed that paper. Thank you, Sammi, for coming to me and letting me be the one to help you get to the Bridge. It was an honor and a privilege that I will always cherish. I will see you again. Merry Christmas, Sammi. I love you.
June 15, 2006--I can't believe it's been almost a year since you followed my Little Guy and Dusty into the house and looked at me almost as if you knew I would help you. I still wish I had been able to help you to get well so you would still be here, but I remind myself that you are healthy now, and safe. I have not forgotten you. I love you.
November 25, 2006 Hi there, furbaby boy. I am thinking about you, and I want you to know that I love you little Sammi. You are not forgotten. I sent you an early present, a capnip mouse to play with. Have fun!
Sunday 1-7-07 Happy New Year little Sammi!! You have met two new friends now, haven't you? Yes, I know Pressy is a lot of fun and so is Caleb. Isn't it funny, Sammi, how you can go through your whole life never knowing someone, but once you have met them once, you become friends and can never forget them? That is how I feel about you, and now with all your friends I know you understand. I know you and Pressy and Caleb are welcoming all the newcomers to the Bridge. This year has gone by so fast. I realize with how fast time is flying that it really won't be long before we all meet together at the Bridge. Well, have fun and every Monday when you see that soft glow---remember its us lighting our candles for all our beloved furbabies at the Bridge.
July 24, 2007---Hello, Precious little Sammi. You are still missed and I love you little fella!
9-2-07 Hi, little fella! Just wanted to let you know that I still think about you and love you. Thank you for all your prayers for me and the kitties. I know you talk with Jesus when He comes by for a visit and with our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary and all the angels. Time is going by so fast Sammi, I can't believe the season is changing again. Soon, we will meet again little friend.
December 10th, 2007: Hi, little Sammi, my precious little furry. I hope you had a wonderful year at the Bridge and have met even more new friends. I know you have welcomed many friends who were abused and neglected in this life and now have the love and friendship they deserved but never got. So many people have lost the blessings a furbaby would have brought to their lives. My prayer for this New Year is that many more people come to love and appreciate the companionship of a furry friend. Please wish all your friends at the Bridge a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for me and remember always that you are never forgotten.
12-25-07 Merry Christmas, little Sammi! I know you are celebrating today with your Bridge friends and that brings a smile to me. You are not suffering anymore, and are healthy and happy in every way. I know that by now, the Bridge Angels have told you about Mr. Cat. I don't know how long he has now, none of us really know anyway, do we? But I am comforted knowing that you and all the furries are up there, ready to greet him and welcome him when the time comes. I want to say "I love you" to all my furries at the Bridge: White Cat, Tuffy, Puny, Patchy, Hunter, Alvin, Moe, Clare, Kittens, Blackie, Red, Snowball, Cece, Little Guy, Little Buddy and his brother, Sweetie, Angel, Mitzi, Kiam, Calica, Panther, Little Angel, Little Sweetie, Precious, Puff, Freddie,and my ferals. I am so grateful that our Loving Creator God shared you all with me. Now you have returned to Him and I look forward to the day when He will share you with me again. If I have forgotten anyone, please forgive me and know that I loved you when you were with me, and I love you now and look forward to holding you again. Please forgive me for anything I did wrong when you were with me. I did the best I knew how and I am truly sorry that I caused any of you to suffer or die prematurely. I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, and want you to know that I often think about all of you.
June 6th, 2008--hi, my little Precious's. i know it has been a while since i visited with you and you know that i had been trying to care for Mr. Cat. Now, you know he is with you at the bridge now and is not hurting or sick anymore. hi, Mr. Cat-i picked up your cremains today at the vet's and i couldn't help giving you a hug and kiss. i am so grateful for this morning--after the vet's receptionist called to say your urn was ready to be picked up, i layed back down and drifted off and in that moment i saw a kitty walking through a yard and i suddenly realized that it was you, you were walking like you did years ago, paws strong and head held high, and you were coming toward me and could see perfectly. i am so grateful that our Lord Jesus gave me this special moment with you. have fun now furries. i also went to visit the final resting places of alvin and his bunch and while i could not find the spot, the Lord spoke to me to pick some of the flowers and take them home. he has given you all a precious bouquet every year. i picked some of the beautiful wild flowers growing around there, and brought them home. i am looking at them and can't believe how they have kept so lovely for the whole week, since it will be a week on Sunday since i went to visit. i will put them in the urn with you, Mr. Cat, along with the Easter card i bought for you when i realized you would probably not see another holiday in this life. We will be together again, furries. you all brought so much to my life. i have never forgotten any of you.
7-28-2009 Hi there, my precius furbabies. Hi, Sammi, have you met all your brothers and sisters? I know you all have met each other, because, as surprising as it is, it has been four years already since I set up this memorial site here. Time is just flying by. I love you babies. Please pray for me, as you know I have been suffering much this past year. I have a candle lit for you right now, because it comforts me to see the light and know that you do too. I love you all and look forward to the day we can be together again. Also, I know Greybaby came, please welcome him, and if another all gray kitty shows up from the feral colony that I was feeding, please welcome him. We are missing him. Thank you all for loving me. Love always, Christine
10-24-09 Hi, Rosie, sorry I forgot your name before. I left you some food and toys because I know now that you never got anything to play with and nothing to eat, either. I am sorry I didn't find you soon enough. You are precious and I wish I had known what was going on. Play now, and eat as much as you want. I know you are with all your brothers and sisters now, and your precious pups too. Thank you for welcoming Dusty to the Bridge on October 7th. She was suffering and now she is well again. Hi, Dusty girl. Play happily now, you are young again, girl. When I think about you all, I wish I could see you, hold you, and pet you again. I love you. 6-2-2014 I know it's been a while since I wrote, but I think about you all the time. Please welcome my mother who left us unexpectedly and introduce her to all your friends while Jesus and Our Blessed Mother walks around with her. I would write more, but right now I cannot get myself together. I love you. I love you so much. I miss you. I miss you all so much.
7-31-15 Can't believe how fast time goes by. I never stop loving you. I miss each and every one of you and would not give up the time I had with you to run from all the pain. Even now, the tears come, unexpectedly, uncontrollably. I know you've met a lot of new friends by now. Please don't forget me. I love you. Please pray for me. Please pray for me. 4-6-16 Corky Kitty came to join you on December 22, please show him around and take him right straight to the healing fountain so he can take a long deep drink from it. I can't stop crying. Please come visit me in a dream. Its so little to ask. Let me know you know me and are waiting for me. I so want to see you all again. I can't wait to come to you. I love you so much. Help me help the kitties I am trying to help now. Help me make the right decisions. Love you.
