Good Bye

Sweetie earned her angel's wings yesterday afternoon.

It was time.

A constant in our lives since mid-2009, she enjoyed her retirement years inside and was pampered.

Farewell, little one.

A tiny cat leaves very big holes in our hearts.

  2. Dearest Eastsidecats,
    So sorry to learn about Sweetie girl!
    She at least knew true human love and shelter and that is what counts.
    Fond memories will forever reside inside our hearts.
    Hugs,

  28. When a soul leaves its mortal body, it is lifted by the wind unseen by adult human eyes, which have been cleared of the ability to experience magic. The soul floats to the nearest river, then rides the current until it enters the River of Life, which gently carries the soul to Rainbow Bridge. The new angel emerges from the water, having discarded all the pain and sorrow of mortal life (often transferred to those mortals nearest to them,). The soul then crosses the River of Life via the Rainbow Bridge and is reunited with their predecessors who loved them while they were mortal; then, a glorious reunion takes place. Their predecessors teach the new angel how to dream visit, to inhibit the bodies of furry and winged creatures so the angel can watch over their loved ones. So, if you see a bird or little animal watching you, or wake up from a dream feeling light of heart, know your angel has been with you. Death is not the end, it's a temporary separation, and if you never stop loving the angel, you will be together again in a place called Rainbow Bridge
