Shadow - The Rainbow Bridge

I had to have Shadow put to sleep on Saturday. All three of my original Kittie Babies are all gone now. Pictured on the couch are Spencer, Tater and Shadow.

It was a hard thing for me to do, but it was what was best for him. And I got to be with him at the end.

When I went to pick Shadow out, I walked into this lady's house and there were five tiny kittens that looked exactly alike. I played with them a few minutes and couldn't figure out how I was going to decide. Then I picked Shadow up. He rolled over belly up in my palms and began purring SO loudly for such a tiny kitten. I knew he was the one.

When I took him home he followed me every step that I took, and I named him Shadow. He's been my companion through a first marriage and divorce, umpteen moves, step kids, foster kids and now my own kids. He had a good life, but I miss him so much!!! He was MY kittie baby. And until the very end, he had the best rumbling purr ever.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful cat. Our pets do become family.
