Crystal has a Rainbow Bridge story now, thanks to our friend Bill whose dogs Tinker and Poo help keep us earth furries and humans up to date on the RB news. You might remember Bill's Tinker & Poo from their report on my brother's dog Fraggle last August.When Crystal passed away in late January, Bill was in the hospital or his computer was down, we forget which, so this story was delayed.
Rainbow Bridge, Crystal
Tink, Poo and Gang

Well, we got the news while back about a kitty, and we for some reason went to sleep on the matter. Well, to tell the truth, we turned the problem over to our cat department. You know we have different departments. We got the fish, which has a few branches. We have the bird department, and brother that got branches We got the cats, that got a few branches.. Then we got the dog, now it gets stickier trying at times to keep up.
We in this case turned it over to Missy the head of the cat department. Now we gets the news, something went wrong. So Poo walked over to see what the problem is. Found Missy down there working up a storm on the books. Seems like we never get a days rest any more. We all got so many poor unwanted coming up the lane, we can claim snowed under.
Well, yes, Crystal of Jan's Funny Farm fame did make it. She - well, we was looking for a she - but it turns out we find Crystal is kind of like that guy Sue. A trick was pulled. You see, Crystal is a boy.
It took some real cat work to find Crystal, but we put the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on the case, and we found Crystal after a couple days of looking. Yep, he was down there watching that over-sized catfish.
Well anyways, we got all the news about that Jan's Funny Farm operation. What a deal. Lets see. We got a Rusty, a Cyndi, a Cameron, a Cotton, a Percy, a Merci, a Buddy, and Samaritan. What a mob. no wonder poor Jan has foot trouble, trying to keep up with that gang.
So earth gang, yes we found Crystal, he got his bed, blankets, and other needs all in good order. also a special Angel to look after his needs. What more could a good kitty ask for.
So the movie tonight, yepper -- "Crystal Came Home." We got treats all around for each and every one.
We know we are going to hear more stories about the Funny Farm in the days to come. Wonder if we can get on the mail list, bet we can. We got pull you know.
Thank you again, Bill. We alternated laughing and crying while reading this. Guess Crystal was rather like Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue."
For the record, Funny Farm Readers, Crystal is not defined as a girl's name. Crystal is a beautiful piece of glassware -- neither masculine nor feminine. As handsome as he was, Jan would name him that again if she had it to do over. He was a sweet kitty and he is greatly missed.
