Thoughts on Thursday

Today we're thinking of our friends and their families - today the Bridge has three new angels. Yesterday both Skeeter of Skeeter, LC and Ayla and Cloud Chaser of the Cafe Cats both went to the Bridge. And now we just found out about Kelly from It's All Good left for the Bridge as well.  We know that they are healthy and whole again now, playing together and watching over their families - but we will miss them.
    A Pets Prayer

    If it should be, that I grow frail and weak,
    And pain should keep me from my sleep,
    Then, you must do what must be done
    For this, the last battle, can't be won.
    Don't let your grief stay your hand,

    For this day more than the rest,
    Your love and friendship stand the test.
    We've had so many years,
    What is to come can hold no fear.
    You'd not want me to suffer, so
    When the time comes, please let me go.

    Take me where my needs they'll tend,
    Only, stay with me to the end
    And hold me firm and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see.
    I know in time you'll see it is a kindness you do for me
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    From pain and suffering I've been saved.

    Don't grieve it should be you who this thing decides to do.
    We've been so close, we two, these years,
    Don't let your heart hold tears.

We've lost good friends and we're sad, but their families are really hurting right now. Please take a moment to visit The Big Thing. Mama-Ann and Kelly's Family and give them some purrs and head-bumpies.

What a sad day. We are purring and sending comforting vibes to the families and friends of Skeeter, Cloud Chaser, and Kelly. We hope they all find comfort in knowing these were great cats who will never be forgotten.

That poem was lovely. It made mama cry because she was remembering Tiki also. We will miss our friends.
