I haven’t listened to or turned on the radio since my Cheeseburger passed away on May 4th, 2008. We used to listen to the radio together, and when I left for work in the morning, I’d leave the radio on for him. When I got to work I’d turn the radio on and listen to the same station. It was my way to feel connected to him while I was at work.


I was sitting at my desk at work today and opened up the little photo album of his pictures I carry with me all the time. I came to a picture of myself and Cheese and left the album open so I could look at it while I worked at my desk. Something moved me to turn on the radio, and when I did, I heard “Here’s “Home” by Daughtry…that was “our special song!” I used to sing along with it to Cheesey and his soft black tail used to swish while I sang. (I know this all must sound very crazy.)


I loved hanging out with Cheeseburger. We’d listen to music together, I’d read poetry to him, and when I was online updating my tiger sites, he was right next to me and I’d tell him about the stories I was posting.


I don’t know if I’m reading too much into hearing the song today, but I am taking it as a sign from my beautiful baby cat telling me “I’m o.k. Mommy,” and that he is free of pain and illness, breathing in the fresh clean air, “watching the birdies” (one of his favorite pastimes,) and basking in the sunlight.


The strange thing is when we left the hospital the morning Cheeseburger died, we got in the car and my son turned on the radio and the song “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd started playing. My son and daughter told me it was a sign from Cheesey, to let us know that he’s o.k.. For those not familiar with the song here are some lyrics:


If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.


Maybe I just need and want to believe they are signs from him, not coincidences, but deep down in my heart, I truly do believe he is telling me that he’s o.k.


I miss you so much Cheeseburger. I will never forget you. You are forever in my heart. I love you Cheesey.

Of course it was a sign from your baby Cheeseburger, telling you is is still with you, all around you. I believe our darlings will try to reach us and if the circumstances are right, they can. We must always keep our eyes and ears and minds open. Some things are too involved and powerful to be coincidences. My beloved Mr. Meowgy has come to several of us in dreams and he stayed with my son's girlfriend overnight in the hospital. She swears he came into the room, jumped on the bed and stayed with her until she fell asleep. I believe her. How wonderful your dear Cheeseburger sent you a sign, he will probably send you more when he can. Believe, I do. Peace and comfort to you. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Cheeseburger is the cutest name.
 It's so sweet how you would read poetry to him. I'm sure he loved it. I teach my cats some Portuguese words once in a while--not sure they're catching on. Glad you're getting some signs--seems to help with the grieving process.

I don't think you are "crazy" or imagining things as I have had the same experiences.  I always sang to my Betsy girl and she would "WooWooWoo" right along with me.  She LOVED to sing...and tapdance!

I believe our babies give us signs to let us know they are fine in their afterlife.  I also believe their spirits are right beside us as we go about our day.  My husband and I can feel Betsy's presence all around us, sometimes stronger than other times.

So, yes, I think the song was a sign from Cheeseburger (love that name!).  So, if believing this is crazy, I guess I am crazy, too!   :-)

Big hugs and much peace to you,

Your Cheeseburger is so cute....  I'm sure it was a sign.  I know I got signs from Putty Kitty and Demon and I sometimes still do.  I think Wizzy will keep in touch with me too when he goes...  I just wish he didn't have to go...  He's in my lap now and I love him so much!

Your Cheeseburger will ALWAYS be with you.  Unfortunately, the hard part to get used to is, not being able to reach out and pet him, not hearing his purrs and not feeling his warm body curl up next to you at night.  But, he's always with you.

Please keep in youch with me.  Even though Cheeseburger isn't ALL white like my Wizzy, he reminds e of Wizzy in a way and it sounds like out Kitties have a lot incommon.

Please keep in touch.

Best Wishes

Wizard's Dad
