When God created kitty cats, He had no recipe; He knew He wanted something sweet, As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar, Adding just a trace of spice; Then stirred in drops of morning dew, To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet, Thus he gave them coats of fur; So they could show they were content, He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave, While strutting down the walk; Then trained them in meow-ology, So they could do cat-talk.

He made them into acrobats, And gave them grace and poise; Their wide-eyed curiosity, He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces, Gave them tiny ears for caps; Then shaped their little bodies, To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers, To look into man's soul; Then set a tolerance for mankind, As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent .... and ... Generous, He made so many of them; Then charged, with fatherly concern, The human race to love them.

When one jumped up upon His lap, God gently stroked its head; The cat gave Him a kitty kiss, "What wondrous love," God said.

God smiled at His accomplishment, So pleased with His creation; And said, with pride, as He sat back, "At last. . .I've reached purr-fection!"

Rascal, you and your brother Rambo are now together again.  I know that once again you will look out for him - not that there is anything to fear across Rainbow Bridge.  Make sure to eat lots of chicken with him - it is a favorite of his!  I remember all of the times taking you two to the vet.  You were always in the same carrier - even though it was really heavy for me with both of you in there.  But the two of you would lay side by side (carrier was the largest of course) until we got there.  Then you would be in the front and Rambo behind you.  You would do your best to keep everyone but me away from you both.  And OH MY when you both got returned to the carrier.  You my sweet girl would be so darn mad, you would pace side by side and even with 30lbs of your combined weight you would have that carrier rocking.  People around would have thought I had a huge vicious large dog - not a sweet little cat like you in there.  LOL  

Yet as soon as we got home you would just be rolling around and doing your happy little "chirp".  You absolutely were never sorry!  I love you baby girl.  Forever. 
Your mama...I miss you so much
A poem.  Author unknown. 

I always knew the day would come
That I'd turn around and you'd be gone
I pondered it with dread and fear
Then came the time that day was here
In advance, there was no warning sign
You just ceased to live, by God's design
No big event to show me clear
You simply were no longer here
The things that I had come to expect
I waited for them to happen next
But the earth still turned, and time moved on
It cared not that my girl was gone
The sun still shone and the birds did sing
Even while my heart was shattering
My tears still fall like heavy rain
But they don't wash away the pain
It sticks to me as though it's glue
The pain, my friend, of missing you
And if I could wish for anything
I wouldn't ask for fancy things
One thing I'd ask... and this is true
I'd wish for one more day with you
Your mama
 Mama's baby girl, I was thinking of you, of course.  I thought of all the times that you would be lying next to me chirping your sweet meows, purring and always so happy to be near me (and vice versa).  I used to say "I don't what everyone else are my sweetness".  You would just give me your little chirp back like saying "yep".  Laughing  And it was always so true.  NO ONE other than me ever saw that pure 100% sweetness.  Your trust solely in me and love of only me (and your brother of course) always filled my heart - what did I ever do to deserve that full trust and loyalty.  I believe that you knew that I gave that all back to you and more.  I love you mamacita.  How I wish I could have one more day with you.  One more hour.  I hope that you are showing all your new friends all of your sweetness and stories of your escapades striking fear into mere mortals!  We WILL be together again. 
Your mama
Oh mamacita, how missed you are!  11 weeks ago today is when you had to leave to go on ahead of us.  Your place is my heart is forever - and just for you.  I was thinking about how often in the middle of the night I would wake up to you "reaching" out to touch me.  You just wanted to make sure I was there.  (Of course you didn't realize that your nails were always so long and so very sharp, SO very sharp!)  So I always woke up and would just say "it's o'k".  I would typically then reach out and hold your paw - we would both fall back asleep.  You had me and I had you.  All was right in our world.  I miss that so much.  I miss you.  I love you baby girl.  You are always your mama's girl.
Your mama forever
Rascal, tomorrow will be 8 weeks since you went on ahead.  I wonder how these 8 weeks seem longer than the 10 years that we had together?  Everything in my heart still misses you mama's girl.  I miss you every night as I try to go to sleep without you by my side; sometimes hogging the bed.  Your short "chirps" as you talked to me.  I miss your sweet voice.  I love you baby girl and know that you love me still and we WILL see each other again. 

As you can see I loaded pictures from all ages of your life to showcase your beauty and hopefully some of that personality that I love so much.  You truly are unique and one of a kind.   

So many people have lit candles for you baby girl!  I hope that you go and introduce yourself to their babies and get to be friends. 

When I think of this very night 8 weeks ago, it hurts.  Hurts to know how happy we were; you were down here next to me purring and napping.  Just enjoying our time together.  Never knowing just how short it was to be.  If I would have known I would have never gone to sleep that night; would have never left you alone; would have spent every minute every second possible with you.  But I didn't know.  And if you did, you didn't let me in on it.

In my heart you are with me every second of every day.  That will never change.  I love you baby girl as much today as I did over 10 years ago when we became a family.  Thank you mama's girl for loving me SO much.

This pic is how I envision you...laying in the sun and soaking up the warmth and beauty all around you.   Rascal, I love you and so does your brother.  Tomorrow will be a hard day for us.
Your mama
It's a bit chilly today.  The heat kicked on while I was getting ready.  I remember my Rascal how you loved to lay over the heat vent in the bathroom while I got ready.  Your hair would flow in the "wind".  You loved it; it made you so happy. 

I miss you mamacita.  Love you always.

You are never forgotten.

Your mama..I miss you
Rascal, tomorrow will be 6 weeks.  I miss you so much.  I wish you were still here with me and your brother.  I come to this page often to light a candle for you, add a memory, sometimes add/change the song that is playing.

You will always own my heart.  I love you and miss you baby girl.  Please be happy and play with your new friends until it is the time for your brother and me to join you.  Dont worry...we won't forget you ever and we WILL be together again. 
Your mama
My Rascal, I just read this poem and thought of you as tears were in my eyes.  Is this what you were thinking as you had to leave me?

The Staircase


Its steps are perfectly spaced

And there’s no need for a rail,
On this staircase that I face,
Now a part of my trail.

It stretches up before me,

Light is everywhere,
I turn to you – do you see?
But your face is full of despair.

Tentatively I move to the first step,

And again I look to you,
But you are too upset
To see what I do.

Do not see with your own eyes,

Instead look with mine.
This staircase climbs to the skies,
Its destination, divine.

I see silver and gold and pure white light,

And the warmth of the sun is on my face.
It all seems to invite –
It’s Home, this place.

I catch a glimpse of grass, perfect and green.

And a sky of incredible blue,
And peace washes over me, so serene.
I love you with all my soul, deep and true.

Know that I go into light and love

And that I carry you in my heart,
That I wait for you with the angels above,
For we are not destined to part.

When you too climb here, to find what I now see,

You’ll know - this is the staircase to our eternity.
