Remembering Bridge Angels

RUSTY:  Today is the first annual Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.  It is the brainchild of Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey.

MERCI:  We have to be honest and mention we do not believe in the rainbow bridge but we have lost four feline siblings since we began blogging. 

CYNDI:  We have so many happy memories of each one, so we do want to join other bloggers in remembering our beloved furry angels. (One of the definitions of "angel" is "a kind, charming, lovable cat".  It actually reads "person" but this is a post about furries, not people, so we take a little literary license.)


MARCUS:  Cameron is the only one I met and he once told me a story.  It had something to do with waking the dead and all four of them were part of it.

SAM:  That was before my time, too, back when there was a Funny Farm Writing Club.  I remember reading the story (Waking the Dead). 



MICAH: Last week we announced we are retiring from the stress of the interviews, but we will finish the few that we had already sent.  This week we are pleased to introduce Josie, Renn, Tucker, Cammie and Noah from I Have Three Cats



PERCY:  You will have to read their story, Josie, Renn, Tucker, Cammie and Noah Speak, to find out why there are five names for three cats. The story is published on Mousebreath. 

BUDDY:  We announced yesterday that last Friday we also retired from co-sponsoring the Pet Parade as part of our plan to de-stress and Blog Without Duty, so don't panic if our name has already been removed.  Everything is fine.

UPDATE:  Aw, we didn't know Rascal and Rocco made us the Featured Favorite for the blog hop this week.  We will miss all of the hosts.



Tthe Pet Parade blog hop is hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou and Love is being owned by a husky.

  4. I miss our old puppy Cocoa. He was SO sweet. I still think about him to this day. I personally have never lost a pet....only family pets. I will probably go into a deep depression when something happens to my babies.

    Oh this is indeed a nice idea... I didn't know about it so will not have a specific post, but, to be honest, I have a permanent honouring of The J's on their own label at my page... gone, but most definitely not forgotten. Blessings to you all, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. That was a really great interview today - I've already read it! We are Rainbow Bridge atheists here and my human didn't want to be sad so we aren't participating either.

  10. Thank you for sharing such wonderful memories. I do know that not everyone believes in the Rainbow Bridge and I certainly don't know if it exists or not. But I do pray, regardless, that our pets move on to a place free from pain - xoxo from Mr. Jazz, Deb, Purr Prints of the Heart and the Zee/Zoey Gang
