A Poem For Those Who Have Lost A Dear Friend
Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too long. I have tried
always to comfort you in time of sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your life. I never want to cause you pain.
Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have eternal sleep in the earth I loved so well.
after your period of grieving for me, make room in your heart for another. You are the kind of human being that should always
have a friend like me to love. Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my memory for too long. Give your love to
another. I know your new friend will never take my place, because we had something very special.
You loved me very
much and I loved you. My spirit will always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep, my grateful heart will always be
purring for you.
A Cat Lover
I Stood By Your Bed Last
I stood by your bed last
I came to have a peep
I could see that you were crying,
you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly
you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you,
I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast,
I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times,
your hands reached down to me.
I was with you
at the shops today,
your arms were getting sore
I longed to take your parcels,
I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today,
you tend it with such care
I want to reassure you,
that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house,
as you fumbled for your key
I gently put my paw on you,
I smiled and said "it's me".
You looked so very tired,
sank into a chair
I tried so hard to let you know,
that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be
near you everyday
To say to you with certainty,
"I never went away".
You sat there very quietly,
smiled, I think you knew,
In the stillness of that evening,
I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile
watch you yawning and say
"Goodnight, God bless,
I'll see you in the morning".
And when the time is right
you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and
we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things
to show you,
there is so much for you to see
Be patient, live your journey out ...
then come home to be with me.
Here is a poem that I found in my email without
an author. With a little research done by a friend, she found the author and I emailed him to ask for permission
to use his poem. Dan has a great love for English Bulldogs as you will be able to tell on his website.
My little bully passed away, no more to breathe
I held him for the last time, then entombed
him in the ground.
Day and night I wept so much, in tears I thought
I searched my soul for comfort, but no peace
therein was found.
In great despair, I hit my knees and then
began to pray.
"Father will I ever see my dog again someday?"
I raised my eyes and saw an angel standing
near a gate.
I sensed an inner peace I'd never felt before
The angel smiled and said to me, "Oh man of
God sees every bird that falls; He knows your
I have met your little dog, I saw him pass
Your precious dog is still alive; he just
walked through this gate.
Paradise is lovelier than you can comprehend.
No pain or grief, no tears or fears, and life
will have no end.
God gave to man His only Son, to cover all
So why would God withhold from you, your pure
and loving friend?
The angel took me by the hand and said, "Now
come with me.
A glimpse of paradise I'll give, to you so
you can see."
Through the gate and o'er the Rainbow Bridge
we did proceed.
Through green valleys filled with flowers,
rolling hills and trees.
"Wow, so this is paradise! The place
was filled with joy.
I saw my bully playing there, with dogs and
cats and toys.
He also had some doggie treats, and food that
He'd made a lot of new friends there, including
girls and boys.
Then I saw a child come near, and hug my little
She said to him, "I love you so," and kissed
him on the face.
The angel said, "The child just crossed the
Rainbow Bridge today.
Now she needs a little friend, to love and
help her play.
God's love for her would be enough, in that
make no mistake.
But in His love, He knew full well, the child
would want a mate.
This is why God called your dog unto this
God's entrusted her with him, 'til you pass
through the gate."
I pleaded, "May I hug them both?! The angel
You'd violate a sacred site, and now it's
time to go.
He led me back across the Bridge and through
the gate to home.
He left me there with new-found hope and peace
within my soul.
If someone ever asks what happens to a dog
Just give a gentle smile of joy and look them
in the eye.
Take their hand and comfort them and tell
them not to cry.
For dogs don't die, they simply cross a bridge
Tomorrow's life is too late. Live today.
Dan Atcheson (5/2/00)
Midnight was 18 when she
crossed over. The sad thing was watching her go through a day of suffering before I could get her to the vet. She couldn't
walk, wasn't eating, & drank very little. My dad was in a nursing home at the time; so I called my mom to see if dad could
handle seeing Midnight. When he saw her, he knew too, that she was in a bad way and said if I had to put her asleep to do
it; don't let her suffer.
I laid on the floor all day with her until it was time to see the vet. I would help her
in the litter box when she needed to go. Needless to say I cried all day cause I knew it was the end, hoping for a miracle;
knowing there wouldn't be one. My heart still aches today, wondering if I did enough for her. I guess everyone goes through
it and I guess there's no way to get around it.
Midnight was my very first cat and the most well disciplined kitty
I knew. I never had to scold her for anything, cause she never climbed up the drapes or jump up on any counters. She has touched
my life in such a way that I thought I would never be possible. I never really liked cats until Midnight. Midnight also has
a brother, Skippy, and a new sister whom she never got to meet. Bailey helped me through the grief with her kitty kisses and
love. She could never take Midnight's place, cause Midnight was 1 in a million. I think in some strange way, Midnight reincarnated
in Bailey. Bailey acts and does a lot of things Midnight would have done, too many things not to be called a reincarnation
of some kind.
Midnight I will always miss you, and even knowing your healthy at the bridge, it still doesn't help
the emptiness I feel inside. Take care my little Minnie Angel, we will be together again someday.
Love you always
& forever, Meowmie
August 10, 1984 - July 29, 2001
Skippy was my handsome, 17 year old little guy with a goofy personality. He would always do something to cheer me up when
I was having a bad day. After suffering with CRF (chronic renal failure) kidney disease for almost 6 months, he lost his
battle. He just couldn't hang on anymore no matter how much I begged him not to let go so close to the date we lost Midnight.
I will miss his gentle touch in the mornings, on my nose or cheek to wake me up. I will also miss him knocking the tissue
box on my head in the middle of the night from the headboard. I'll miss him laying in my husband's spot in bed when he was
gone to work.
Skippy, meowmie will always love & miss you. You know, you were always my little loverboy. I know
your not suffering anymore but it doesn't stop the hurt and sadness I feel. Someday you, Midnight, and I will meet again
at the Bridge. You have your wings now, so take care my little guy. I also have my memories and plenty of pictures. So fly
on my Angel Skippy, till we meet again.
Love you always & forever, Meowmie
Where have the years gone.........I remember
bringing you home at 5 weeks, my little bundle of joy,ready to share our lives together and that we did. Our love grew every
second of every day of the year. And as the years went by,one by one,our love continued to grow...As age started to set in
your love continued to grow but your body started to slow and fail,and as the final days came,it was now my turn to give you
the last gift out of my total love-to set you free so again you could be my Puddy-Two.
Now you are my brightest star in
the sky. Fly free my little"Angel". Forever In My Heart Your Mom, Cathy
It turned out that even after Puddy died will
would give me what was the most incredible gift of all It was the eve of Puddys 1 month anniversary at 11:45p.m. I was on
the puter writng about my despair over losing Puddy to a friend and our flood light came on in the front yard I looked out
and saw nothing so I started to type again and noticed the light was still on, so I looked out again and all of the sudden
yelled to our 12 yr old son to come in and look at this and he ran in and I said look and he looked out the window and yelled
its Puddy and I said you see it to and he said yes and there right outside was this beautiful long haired kitty; looking in
at us this cat was beautiful and healthy just like Puddy when he was younger so we ran to the front door and opened it and
there we all made eye contact and then this cat slowly turned around and Jeff goes, mom look he is prancing like a bunny and
why is it so foggy out and everything like in slow motion (it was a clear summer night but I was thinking the same things
Jeff was asking me)he didn't run he just pranced and we followed him and then all of the sudden he was gone and the feeling
I had thru all of this is something I just can't put into words, I asked Jeff if he had ever seen a cat like that in our subdivision
and he said no never; we ran back in side and woke up my husband and told him the story and all he said was Oh My God he really
did come back and give you a sign........Yes, Puddy knew I was dying inside, it was taking a toll on me physically and emotionally
and he knew only he could help me; and even after death my sweet wonderful guy continued to give me the gift as he had over
the 18 1/2yrs of our lives.
March 1987 ----- April
Stewart, you really had a rough life before God sent you to our back door that Sunday afternoon
in March. We did all we could to give you a wonderful, loving home, and you were the best pet anyone could ever have asked
for. You kissed us, hugged us, took naps with us, played with your toy foam balls -- batting them all across the room, and
taught Winnie & Cobie how to make that loud "meowing" sound when they played with their toys. You were a handsome boy,
and you knew it. Your little profile was the cutest; you looked
like a little, old man.
The cancer struggle was
a tough one, but we beat that one, boy. You felt fine for over 6 & 1/2 months, and you loved to hang over Mom's shoulder
while she typed on the computer to all her "cat friends." Auntie Cathy sure loved meeting you!
It was sort of hard
for you to get around after you went blind from hypertension, but you figured out how to get where you wanted to go. You followed
Mom everywhere she went,and you certainly never had trouble finding Sissy's room and her bed, where you loved to take a nap.
Dad, of course, enjoyed giving you hugs and nibbles of whatever he'd happened to be eating for dinner. You were a real mooch!
We ended up spoon-feeding you most of your meals because it was hard to eat with not many teeth left.
The last struggle
wasn't anticipated, and we would have done anything to still have you here with us. Please understand that we'll always love
and miss you, and we will all be together one day again. We've gotten your little signs...thank you, Stewie.

April 30, 1983 - October 12, 1998
When someone you love becomes a memory, they say that memory becomes a treasure....
That may be true but
Bo was my treasure every day for almost 16 years. On April 30, 1983 I watched him be born, the runt of the litter none the
less. But he didn't stay that way long and grew to be my stong and healthy best friend and companion. No words could ever
describe the depth of the bond that Bo and I shared and he was truely my soulmate. Bo was the most gentle, loving kitty you
could ever find and I often said if Bo were human he would have been a Southern Gentleman! Bo wasn't much of a talker but
he spoke volumes with his eyes and I always knew how he was doing by just looking into them. My favorite nickname for Bo was
"Sweetie" and even when he was being ornery or not wanting to be found he would always come to that endeared name. I miss
my baby so much but the memories are as vivid as if it were today....that handsome face waiting at the window as I drove into
the driveway, that special cock of his head as he'd head for the door, and hugs and kisses that so many times drove away my
tears. The way he would sit by his favorite toy (a kitty tease) until I played with him first thing in the morning and when
I came home. Bo's favorite wicker chair and the way he'd cuddle with me every night. We were a pair - Bo and I - and the years
with him were priceless and will be treasured in my heart forever.
One promise I always made to Bo was that I would
always be with him til the end. All too soon age crept up on us and even tho Bo fought hard through many of the usual illnesses
and diseases that befall our furry friends in their senior years, he was not strong enough to fight the cancer that had invaded
his body and stilled my soul. On October 12, 1998 after spending the day with my "Sweetie" telling him how I loved him and
recalling memories of our years together we made our way to the vet who had known Bo almost all his life. And as I had promised
I held Bo in my arms telling him I loved him as the angels came to take him to the Rainbow Bridge. A part of me left with
Bo that day never to be again until I meet him again. But Bo's spirit is with me daily and he has now become my angel and
Bo's spirit and memory are with me always but on one particular night when I was especially sad and
was crying myself to sleep Bo came to visit. I had just turned off the lights, laid down and turned over and I felt the distint
impression of a kitty jumping to the bed. It was so prominent that I sat up and turned on the light to see which of my girls
had come up to join me. None of them was even in the room! So I knew that once again my sweet Bo had come to comfort me when
I needed him most as if to say I am okay Mom and always here with you.
October 1991 - October 1999
Molson was my pride and joy. We could be sitting in the same room for
hours and all I'd have to say is "Hi Sexy guy" with a high voice and he'd act as if he hadn't seen me all day...lol.
I carried him around my shoulders like a boa and was quite comfortable there. He was very smart. I taught him how to lie
down and roll over. He was a good mouser too. Molson touched my heart and made me feel so good inside, for that I thank
him dearly. He was with me for 8 years before he passed on. Miss you Molson.....

Hello, my name is Stripes. I was a fuzzy brown mackeral tabby with black stripes. I loved
to go outside and hunt birds and bring them home for my meowmie. She didn't appreciate my presents though. I was also on the
whimmpy side. I didn't like to fight or wrestle with the other cats.
My meowmie found me at the local Pets Supplies
Plus. Some people were giving me and my three sisters away. Meowmie fell in love with me and took me home.
I was 3
years old when I disappeared before a huge blizzard last
November. My meowmie has no idea where I am. My problem was when
outside I went too far, and too long.
One night I went too far, and it started to snow really hard. I never
made it back...
On June 4th, it would have been my 4th birthday.
Meowmie (Sarah) misses you.
Below are Sarah's 2 other kitties she lost.

Hello. My name is Peaches. My proper name was Mr.
Peaches so no one would mistake me as a girl. My nicknames were Orange, Bloated Deer, and The Orange One. I was an American
Shorthair orange and white patched tabby. Meowmie saw me and brother, Rascal, in the window at a pet shop, fell in love with
us both, and took us home. I loved to go outside and roll in the dirt. I was very vocal. I meowed and meowed a lot. Meowmie
use to let me out every morning when the sun came up, and I’d always come back shortly after, except one time. Meowmie
let me out one morning, and I didn’t come back. She didn’t know where I was, and was very worried. A few days
later, meowmie’s neighbor found a dead orange and white cat in his yard. The neighbor brought meowmie’s mom and
brother over to see if it was me. And the cat was me. I had blood coming out of my mouth, and I was missing a leg. They took
me home and buried me in meowmie’s backyard. I lived a very short life, just over one year. Meowmie misses me very much.

Hi, my name is Chelsea Ann, but my meowmie nicknamed
me Pelt, Gerchum, and Salsa. I was a gold glitter Bengal with sea green eyes. I was four years old when I disappeared. My
meowmie got me from a local Bengal breeder. I was a little on the snobby and prissy side. If you touched one of my spots,
I'd to wash it back to my perfection. I loved water. I'd wait by the faucet till my meowmie turned it on for me. If she doesn't
turn it on, I'd find a glass of water and drink from that. The thing I loved to do the most was to mother kittens. I had two
litters of kittens. The first litter was one boy and two girls. My second litter was three girls. (None of them were as pretty
as I was though). One summer afternoon, meowmie let me outside to go mouseing, and I never came back. Meowmie has no idea
what happened to me, and she still misses very much to this day.
Sadly missed by Sarah
It seems like forever since
I saw your cute little face or felt your kisses. I remember how you loved to wake me so early in the morning to tell me when
the food bowl was empty or when you just had to have your cuddle even if it was 3 AM. I miss our cuddles & talks. I remember
laying on the sofa with you when you were sick. You stayed so close to me whenever I was sick. I wanted you to know I was
there for you. The whole family missed you when you left us. Especially Lacey (My dog) our honorary cat. She looked all over
the house for you after you left. She slept on the sofa where you two spent so many of your last hours on earth for weeks
afterward. I hope she is with you now as she left us a year ago too. I imagine you two curled up in heaven on the sofa as
you so often were when you were with me. You were the best cat I could have asked for. I love you and miss you.
Casper at 6 years old. He was with me for 2 years. He had problems with his liver and died of liver failure after a sort but
brutal battle. He was on a feeding tube and had to be fed 6 times a day. Lacey, my dog, was his best friend and constant companion
for those two years with us. She was the one who ran to get me when Casper had a seizure. I rushed him to the vet, but at
this point it was too far advanced. The vet let me stay with him & he was put to sleep. Poor Lacey was so sad. I only
hope that now that she too has passed on (Of old age) she is with him.
Mommy (Kim >^.^<)
Don't know for
sure how old Jack was, but he couldn't of been no more than 3 or 4 years old. I wanted to add him on this page cause if it
wasn't for Jack, my Bailey would not be here. Jack was the neighborhood stud. We fed him when his owners abandoned him caused
he sprayed in the house. We never knew when he would show up, but when he did there was always food and water for him. Like
all unaltered males, he got into a lot of fights and his injuries would always heal. One day he came around and his front
paw was badly injured. Couldn't get a close look at it until it was too late. He had puncture wounds clear through the other
side and looked badly infected. It didn't look like cat bites either. There had been a possum around & I think he got
into a fight with it.
The week after I lost my Midnight, Jack was on the neighbor's porch watching his little babies.
We got him calmed down enough to pour peroxide on his leg. The neighbor got him into their pet carrier and took him to the
Humane Society to see what they can do but they told her to take him to a vet. She did just that and it wound up that his
leg was so bad that he would probably lose it. They said we could try antibotics for several weeks but since we never knew
when he would show up, that was out of the question. The sad thing is that Jack had to be put down. He didn't belong to anyone
and I just went part-time and couldn't afford another big vet bill.
So now Jack is with Midnight & Skippy, and
I hope they are getting along better at the bridge than they did on earth. If Jack hadn't been around I would have never found
my little Bailey and he sure would be proud of how beautiful his little girl became, especially since she doesn't have his
I miss Jack, he was a gentle boy and always threw himself at your feet to rub his belly. I do wished
I could have done more for him, but it just wasn't in the cards. Jack you have your angel wings now so behave yourself &
don't be chasing all the girl kitties around.....lol

When I got Beethovan he was 4 weeks old. He was my very
first cat. His mother had abandoned him in a ditch, and my sister took him in until I could. The first time I saw him I was
amazed at how small he was! I didn't know how I could ever care for something so fragile! But, I took the challenge and honor
on. The first night he slept by my head, and chewed on my hair. When it was time to go to the bathroom he sat on my husband's
arm and pooped right there! He never woke up, so it was no big deal, though. He used the litterbox everytime after that,
though; he even tried to eat it a few times!
He was a very loving cat; he stuck to me like glue almost all the
time! But, as he grew older, he became independent. When we moved into a rural area, we allowed him and his brother outside.
He never wanted to come inside again! When we moved to the next town over, I drove him to the house alone. I didn't think
he would get out of the house, but he was sneaky! I didn't see him again after that, but I think I may have found him on
the road. The cat was too mangled to tell even if it was him.
I will miss him forever, and have been making up
for his death every day of my life. I will never again allow my cats outside, and will certainly cherish everyday like it
is the last. I do miss him so much. May he rest in peace!
Meowmie (Tabatha) misses you.
1985 - October 21, 2001
We love you and will miss you so very much;
Mom is not with us at your end. But she did say goodbye to you this morning and I to sadly say goodbye my catgirl, you have
been my friend and companion for sixteen years I find it very hard to come to this conclusion to have the veterinarian's office
do what I asked them to complete.
I will think of you for the rest of my life, and when
we meet at the Rainbow Bridge.
You and Nipoma will see me and we will be with each
other for eternity.
Please look for my dad (Ron) and my father-in-law (Abe),
as I love them as much as I love you and miss them so very much. Please rub against their legs in any of my other pets
friends and relatives that are not with me anymore.
I love you all, always yours Paul

Silver was a wanted and loved kitty even before
he was born in Denmark. At 12 weeks he was adopted by his mommy.
He was maybe the more overlooked kitten where
his sisters Molly and Candy took all the attention and did all the kittentrouble.
He was all his life known for being gentle,
sweet, a bit wimpy, never scratched or bit anyone. Always the kitty we had to rescue from trees or fights.
Silver had an American girlfriend, Bailey (Midnight
and Skippy's sister), and they would send emails to each other.
On a cold day in October 2001 he ended all his
nine lives on a road.
His name and color was SILVER but he was a kitty with a heart of gold.
May his little soul rest
in peace. Silver you have your angel wings now. Your with your siblings at the Bridge and playing together once again.
He was always loved and will always be missed.
We will never forget you Silver.

Aussie, blue merle, I got her as a puppy,
she was bred for working stock and she did try her best but was more interested in being with me & watching out for me.
She understood everything I said. We shared so many good times and also during the bad times she helped me get from one day
to the next even when I wanted to give up. She was a constant companion and my best friend for 15 years.
A gift from God above is the beauty of a friendship,
touched by unconditional love. A love that asks no questions ... believes in all the best ... never doubting, ever trusting
... withstanding any test. A love that weathers any storm and yet that love still stands through the very darkest hour, it
still reaches out a hand... there in that hand the sweetest gift that you can give a friend. A heart that cares, a love that
shares that will be there till the end. A treasure to be cherished ... a gift from God above is what I share with you my friend,
an unconditional love.
Thank you God for allowing me to have this special friend in my life ...

Ticker E. Katty
1986 - March 16, 2001
My very special barn katty, got him as a baby
and he grew up in the barn. A very good mouser and overseer of his domain, a good and dear friend to me, Misha and the horses.
I sold the farm in 1993 and retired him to the new house as an inside outside Katty. I don't think he minded the move and
change of job title ... he relaxed and slept on the end of my bed - purring constantly - I guess that's why I named him Ticker.
He was so very smart but stubborn like an old goat, he tried to do it all by himself.
When he started failing, he allowed me to
take care of him through the end of his days and I am soo very thankful that we were able to share 15 years of life together
and he trusted me to care for him.
Missed by Marcia.

My sweet dear Mitzi, on September 20, 1986 you were born into this world.
Your life began with sadness, your kitty mommy was killed when you were two weeks old. You and your four siblings were
hand fed and all of you grew up to be healthy beautiful kittens. I will never forget the day I first saw you.
You were advertised as calico, with orange and black, all ready for Halloween. That October afternoon, my mom and I
went to see the kittens. You were so cute, with your short tail, you were originally named short tail. We changed
your name to Mitzi and its a good thing we did, because your short little tail grew into a beautiful long fluffy tail.
You were my first kitten. And you were a present to me for good grades on my report card. You were a part of my
life for so long, you were there when I graduated high school, there for my first real boyfriend, there when I graduated college,
graduated law school, were there when I was sworn in for the bar, you were there when I became engaged and married.
You were there during the bad times too, when I lost my babies. You have always been there for me during the good and
bad times in my life. It is hard to believe you are now at Rainbow Bridge. I know you are still with me in spirit
and will live forever in my heart.
Love Always, Mommy (Shari) and Daddy (Kevin)
(Labor Day, 1987 - January 8,
My dearest Toi Ling, you were my first male
kitty and my first himalayan. I miss you so much. You were a big part of my life for so many years. You
were my little chatterbox who loved to talk. I miss taking you on walks, sitting with you and cuddling you on the bed,
and talking with you. You are now at Rainbow Bridge with Gidget and Mitzi, I know they are looking out for you.
Brandi misses you dearly too. The four of you were my fantastic four, the loves of my life. You will live forever
in my memories and in my heart.
Love, Mommy (Shari) and Daddy (Kevin)
Sebastian "our old man"
born June 1985 passed away May 28,2003
Sebastian made me take him home. I had only intended
to take his calico sister Izzy home. From around the corner came a black kitten, meowing loudly at me, from that moment
he wouldn't leave my side. I ended up taking two kittens home that night. My two kitties were so playful! Years
passed and my life changed, first came a son then another son, years later came my daughter, all the while my kitties and
a few more that had adopted us along the way were with us. Four years ago my beloved Izzy had a tumor in her ear, it
was too deep, and her heart was very weak, she was older too, and I couldn't bear to have her suffer. Sebastian
stayed on, talking to me everyday, demanding his meals on time and keeping the other cats in line. Almost a month ago I noticed
he had a problem with his ear. My kind husband took him to the vet, I couldn't stand to hear bad news. The vet said that it
just looked like an infection and we treated it. I was so hopeful. The ear never got better. He was weak but still eating
and drinking. One evening I came home and he was very confused. He seemed too weak to even stand. I
wasn't sure what it was. He had been up that morning eating breakfast as usual with the other cats. My biggest
fear was that he was suffering. We decided that we would be waiting at the Vet's office when they opened. I wrapped
him up in a soft towel and cradled him. He purred and feel deep asleep, I knew then his time to leave me was coming near.
He was so peaceful lying in my arms, so quiet. I held him all night. At 7:10 am May 28,2003
he took his last breath in my arms, at home. My old man passed on in the arms of the one who loved him
the most. We buried him near his beloved sister. My old man I love you so. Your meows and purrs were so sweet
to my ears, I often called you my poet. You lived a long life my precious one, I will be forever grateful for your love.
Squeaky will be the boss now and watch over Puff and Casper. Rest in peace my beloved black kitty.
