My Dear friends  Barb, MaxsMandD, Nance and Melanie......

Thank you all for stopping by and wishing my beloved Smudgie a happy 31 week anniversay at the bridge.

I'm glad you all like the quote,  it's just so true, these little furbabies awake our heart and souls like nobody else can. 

I'm truly humbled by the kindest and compassion I've received from all of you and everyone on this site, I will be eternally grateful.

I keep you all in my prayers and wish you always peace and comfort.

Remember, the love never ends.

Hugs to all...........Nancy

Happy 31 weeks, Smudgie. I know that you will stay close to you mom, and guide her as she travel's life's road. Then one day, you will be there to guide her across the bridge. I hope you have all the treats you like, and extra ice cream. 

Nancy, the quote is a favorite of mine. For, truly, how can one's soul truly be awakened until we have known the unconditional love given to us by our fur babies. I hope that whatever angel is caring for Smudgie while she waits for you will let her ride on the belt of her robe or gown. I can just imagine Smudgie doing that to all the angels up there. I am sure that she thinks about you while she does it, and tells everyone what a great mother she has.

Dearest Brenrae,

Thank you so much for remembering my sweet girl on her 31 week anniversary.

I've always loved that quote as well, they truly do wake up our heart and soul.

And yes I'm sure Smudgie is at the bridge riding along on an angel's robe. Their quirks, their habits, their funny antics will always be remembered and bring a smile to our faces.

Thank you again for your sweet words.

I wish you peace and comfort.

Remember, the love never ends.

Hugs to you......Nancy

Hi Sweetie Pie......

It's Tuesday, oh how I hate Tuesdays,  32 weeks ago on a Tuesday you left for Rainbow Bridge and 32 weeks ago Mommy lost her best friend, her soulmate.  But as I promised, as each Tuesday passes Mommy wants to write a happy memory and this morning I was thinking about the time your sister Calie was sitting on my lap, something she rarely does but that particular day she decided she was going to do it. She sat snuggled in my lap snoozing and about 10 minutes later you come trotting in to the room and gave me the look like "what's going on here" because you are the only lap cat in the house and Mommy's lap is your territory.  You then precede to jump on top of Calie and stand on her back with your hind legs and rub your face against Mommy's face, using poor Calie as step stool. Now for the folks reading this post, I should mention that Calie is twice the size of Smudgie so Smudgie wasn't hurting Calie....but poor Calie woke with a start and gave me the look like " get her off my back this minute".  When i think back to this it always gives me a little chuckle because you have the will of a lion packed into this tiny 5 pound cat who looks like an angel but every so often the little devil horns came out.....and I know you love you sister Calie and would never hurt her you just wanted to make sure she knew "Mommy's lap is off bounds".  How I miss those times, how I miss my sweet little lap cat with her funny quirks, you will always remain in Mommy's heart forever.  Remember, Mommy's lap is waiting for you.

I went to last night's candle ceremony, and I know you and your friends can see all the beautiful candles lit in honor of all our sweet babies who are waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge.  I can almost picture you all looking down at all the thousands of candles being lit all over the world at the same time, what a beautiful site that must be. 

Kisses on the wind sweet little one, remember Mommy's love will never end.....

Dear Nancy, 

What a beautiful memory of the "little devil" in Smudgie, when it came to guarding her favorite territory - mom's lap! It's only natural she would want this most special place all for herself...!

I'm so glad you have these "better moments" where you find yourself chuckling a little bit thinking of the precious little things that make Smudgie so unique and special. 

Happy 32 weeks at RB, sweet Smudgie! It is so nice getting to know you through the loving eyes of your loving mommy. She is thinking of you today and everyday little one! I hope you have a great time today - you are completely loved here on earth and in heaven! 

Hugs to mom and angel Smudgie,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Elise,

Awwww, thank you so much for stopping by to wish my Smudgie a Happy 32 weeks at the bridge and thank you for the kind words.

The better moments sometimes come through tears, I remember something funny she did and it makes me chuckle and then cry because I miss those moments, I guess for all of us it will always be bittersweet.

Big hug to you and much peace and comfort.

Nancy

Dear Nancy,
I'm sorry I missed your baby's 32nd week...I haven't been on in a few days.  I know what you mean about hating Tuesdays.  Fridays used to be a favorite day...but not any more.  

You describe the 'scene' perfectly, I could picture the 'looks' that were passed between those two girls - a precious memory..it made me smile...Thank you...

Hugs to you tonight and kisses to sweet Angel Smudgie...

Hi Sweetie,

Well another Tuesday has rolled around which means it’s 33 weeks since you left for Rainbow Bridge. I remember when you first passed, my heart hurt so much that I wanted to fast forward a year but as each week ticks by and it gets closer to the year mark I realize my heart will always hurt because a piece of it is missing but that’s OK because I know it’s safe with you.

As I promised you I’m going to post a happy memory each week and even though this memory is not about you, it leads up to how we met.  About 10 years ago I was coming home from work and I was walking towards my car and saw a thin gray cat sitting next to my car.  As I got closer I saw how beat up this poor cat looked.  When I got to my car I said hi and he gave me a long loud hiss. Still feeling bad for him I went into the corner store and grabbed a few cans of cat food and offered him some food.  Again, I got the hiss but he did eat the food and then he just walked away.  Next night, same thing happened, I said hi, he hissed, I gave him the food , he hissed again and ate the food.  This went on for many many weeks and every night I would try to get a bit closer but “Gray” as I now nicknamed him wasn’t having it.   As the weather started getting colder I worried about him and thought if I can just catch him I would take him in, but Gray wasn’t having that either.  I tried everything, trying to get on his good side, trying to use a trap one of the shelters loaned me, I even called multiple shelters and they all told me that as long as I was feeding him and giving him water it would be better to let him live out his life where he was most comfortable, that would be the kindest thing to do for him.  So this remained our relationship for months which turned into years.  Even after my company moved and I didn’t park my car in that spot any more I would go back every night and found him waiting under someone's car or behind a bush and all I had to do was call “Gray” and he would come out, hiss at me and I would give him his food.   There was one time I went to a wedding and I couldn’t get anyone to feed him, so here I am in a cocktail dress and high heels at 2:00 a.m in the morning,  whispering “Gray” where are you.  He comes out from behind a bush and has this annoyed look on his face as if to say “your late” and gives me a hiss…I just reply back  “ Really??” and gave him his food.   For the longest time I wondered where he would go after he ate because I knew he wasn’t from this area, sometimes I would get there early and I would see him walking down the block. My curiosity got the better of me so one day  me and your Aunt Jeannie followed him in my car (I know this must sound really strange, but I was really curious).  We followed him for a few blocks and we watched him jump over a fence and was greeted by a black cat who rubbed up against him and it made me feel so much better that he had a little friend.  I always wondered why he never brought his friend with him when he came for dinner.  Another thing I always wondered was why he never came around on Saturday night, I would go every night and he would be waiting but never on a Saturday night. On Saturday I would leave the food in his spot and the next night it would still be there and  he would be waiting but wouldn’t touch it because he knew I would give him fresh food.   Where did he go on Saturday nights? About a year after I met “Gray” in the same spot a litter of kittens starting appearing, one was your sister Calie and three other little kittens.  I knew if I didn’t rescue them they would probably get hit by a car so for a few weeks we keep feeding them and they became very friendly and we were able to get close to them. Then one day when we were feeding the little kittens a very sweet older kitten appeared all white with a black tail, two black spots on the top of her head and a cute “black smudged nose” and the minute I saw you it was love at first site and the rest is history. We scooped up all the kittens and I adopted Smudgie and Calie,  Aunt Jeannie adopted Peaches and Aunt Marie adopted Blackie and Tabby .  But if it wasn’t for “Gray” I would have never met my beloved Smudgie.  As for “Gray” I continued to feed him and he continued to hiss at me.  As he got older I worried more and more about him and still wanted to take him in off the streets,  but he just wasn’t having it. Gray truly marched to the beat of his own drum.  He continued not to show up on Saturdays but was there every other day of the week.  Then one day he just stopped showing up but I continued to leave  food for him just in case.  I didn’t see him for months and then he just reappeared as if nothing had happened,  he hissed at me, I put the food down and he ate and walked away.  God bless this cat for years he survived long cold New York winters and long hot New York summers.  About 2 years ago,  we had a really bad winter, snow storm after snow storm and I wasn’t able to get to “our spot” to feed him. When I finally was able to get there,  he never showed up.  I went for weeks looking for him,  but he was gone and I never saw him again.  He always tugged at my heart and I hope now he is with my beloved Smudgie at Rainbow Bridge, safe and warm.  I will be forever be grateful to “Gray” because I would have never met my Smudgie if it wasn’t for “Gray”. Gray will always hold a special place in my heart.  And Smudgie, if you see “Gray” at Rainbow Bridge, you tell him I love him  and when it’s Mommy’s time to come to  get you at the bridge, tell Gray he is coming with us, but he really has to stop hissing at me.

Happy 33 weeks at Rainbow Bridge sweetie, remember, Mommy’s love will never end.

Gray - thank you for bringing me to Smudgie.......I hope you know I love you.

Kisses on the wind to you sweetie………Love Always Mommy

Dear Nancy
I enjoyed reading this beautiful story of Gray  - what a character he was...accepting assistance - but only on his own terms.  I laughed out loud(really) when I  read... "...tell Gray he is coming with us, but he really has to stop hissing at me."  What a blessing you were to each other - I'm sure he is waiting there safe with Smudgie. Thank you so much for sharing his story and for the smiles - I needed that.

Happy 33 weeks Angel Smudgie!

Hugs to you and angel hugs to Smudgie (Gray too - if he allows it LOL)

Even though I don't often comment I always look forward to your Tuesday posts about Smudgie as they remind us of so many reasons why we adore our cats.  This most recent story about Gray has struck a particular chord with me as it certainly articulates what I would expect a cat who survived years on the streets of New York City to be-tough, cantankerous, committed to living life his way and ultimately, and perhaps most importantly, lovable.  And you honored him by your unstinting devotion to him over those years as exemplified by that scene of you in a cocktail dress and high heels unwaveringly feeding him at 2:00 in the morning, only to be told by Gray in no uncertain terms that he did not find your tardiness acceptable.  Although the lives they lived were different I would imagine that Smudgie and Gray have met and probably hang out together, united by that strongest of forces, your love for them.

Dearest Melanie - I'm glad Gray's story put a smile on your face,  he certainly was a character and he certainly lived life on his own terms.  I hadn't thought about Gray in a while and last week he came to mind and I knew I would post his little story as my Tuesday Happy Memory.  As I was writing his little story it really gave me such a warm feeling knowing that other people will read about him and get to know this tough but loveable gray cat from Brooklyn New York  and that his life will be remembered.  Thank you for stopping by to wish my beloved Smudgie a happy 33 weeks at the bridge and thank you for reading Gray's story, he truly was one of a kind......I can almost hear him hissing....LOL. Blessings, peace and comfort to you and may you get lots of "heart signs" from your beloved LeeLee.

Dear Cal - Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts to my beloved Smudgie.  As for Gray, without a doubt he was very loveable in his own special way. Gray had a way to tug at your heart strings, but made it "perfectly clear" where the boundaries were and that was OK with me. It took me a while to finally understand this, but I made peace with myself that Gray wanted to live on his own terms. To him I was the nice crazy cat lady who provided him food but when he was finished eating he would go on his merry way to where ever he went without a glance back  or if he did glance back it usually came with a little hiss...LOL.  I wish I can hear him hiss one more time.  Blessings, peace and comfort to you.

Remember, the love never ends......

Hugs......Nancy ( Mom to Angel Smudgie and Calie, Sparky, Jade.......and Angel Gray if he will have me... :)....)

Nancy, what a wonderful story about Grey. It reminds me of my mom who cared for a feral colony that lived in the alley of the house I grew up in. She purchased cases of the least expensive cat food she could find at the grocery store and faithfully fed those cats until her dying days (literally). She even managed to tame & adopt 2 of the cats that were part of the colony.

I grew up in Minnesota, so we too have brutally cold winters and very hot summers. There was one winter that was particularly cold. We had a double garage that was detached from the house and had those old farm doors that the alley cats could sneak under and go into one of the garages for shelter from the elements. We really didn't use both of the garages to house the cars, so the cats were able to use one of the garages in the winter for their shelter. Anyhow, the spring after the particularly cold winter we did our usual spring garage cleaning and came upon the body of one of the alley cats that had frozen to death over the winter. I remember my mom crying when she found the cat's body and how she actually buried him in our tiny back yard. At the time I wasn't particularly "into" the alley cats. But now, many years after my mom's death and now that I have cats of my own to care of, I have a much deeper empathy, admiration and understanding of what my mom did and how much she cared for those cats. Even after my parents sold the house and my mom moved across the city to her own place, she continued to come back and feed those cats at least once a day. She did this even after she got into a car accident and was without a car for several weeks - she faithfully took the bus (which was at least a 1-hour ride one way) back to our old neighborhood and fed the cats that were part of that colony. Every single day.

I often wonder what happened to the cats after my mom passed away. I suspect they naturally died off because there wasn't anybody left to care for them and also because there were several neighbors that were very anti-cat. But at least I can take comfort knowing that, for at least a few years, there was somebody in their lives that cared enough to care for and love & feed them every single day until the end of her life...

Take care,
- Kelly

Hi Teresa,

Yes he was certainly an incredible little soul and what a character and I will be forever grateful to him.

It gives me comfort to know that he is warm and safe and at peace at Rainbow Bridge.

I do miss him and even to this day, when I pass that spot that he use to wait for me, I whisper Hi Gray and I can almost hear him hiss.... :)

Thanks for your kind words.

Blessing, peace and comfort.

Hugs............Nancy

Dear Kelly,

Your Mom was a beautiful and compassionate  woman and you should be so proud of her because she truly knew the meaning of every life is valuable and has a purpose. A lot people just look past these beautiful animals not even giving them a second glance but your Mom saw beyond that, she saw their beauty, their sweetness, their amazing ability to survive and she took it upon herself to help them out,  God Bless her.

I'm sure you Mom has a very special place in heaven.  Thank you so much sharing that beautiful story.

Blessing, peace and comfort always.

Nancy

Dear Nancy,

Thank you for sharing the story of "Gray" - how this very special and unique boy led you to your sweetest Smudgie. As the saying goes, "all thing work together for good". Your kindness to a stranger, your perseverance and caring with Gray...giving him food, trying to win him over, returned a life changing blessing in your beloved Smudgie.

Dearest Smudgie,

Please come to your mommy in a dream soon, baby. She loves you so much! I hope you enjoyed your favorite vanilla ice cream treat on your anniversary day.

(((((((Smudgie&Mommy))))))))

Hi Elise,

Thank you so much for stopping by and wishing my beloved Smudgie a Happy 33 weeks at Rainbow Bridge.  Yes Gray was absolutely a unique little character, I will be eternally grateful to this little guy. I often wonder what happened to him and even though it's been at least 2 years since I've last seen him, when I'm in that area I still look for him. I hope now he is warm, safe and at peace at the bridge and I hope he knows how much he tugged at my heart strings.

Blessings, peace and comfort.

Big Hug......

Hello Smudgie......

Well, it's Tuesday and almost 8:30 A.M. which means you left for Rainbow Bridge 34 weeks ago. Don't forget, Mommy will light your candle at St. Paul's chapel today, I hope you can see the beautiful candle from heaven.

Yesterday was a "sad Smudgie" day, I was looking at pictures and videos of you and even after 34 weeks I still find it hard to look at your pictures because Mommy so misses that sweet sweet face.

Friday is Halloween, and you know Mommy loves all the holidays but Halloween is my favorite. But this year the holidays just won't be the same without you there to share them. I know Halloween was probably not one of your favorites since Mommy always bought you a cute little hat to wear which 
really didn't go over to well with you, but it lasted about 30 seconds on your head, sometimes not even long enough for Mommy to take a picture.  Awwwwww, sweetie I miss you so much, this year you are my little pumpkin angel.

As Mommy said I was looking through pictures and came across the below picture, I think it was taken about two years ago.  That year you were my little angel with the "devil horns".  I think the look on your face is priceless,  it's as if you were saying "Get this off of my head NOW",  the second after the picture was taken the little horns went falling across the room.

This Halloween Mommy will be thinking of her sweet Angel in heaven celebrating at Rainbow Bridge with all of her friends.

Happy Halloween !

Happy 34 Weeks Beautiful Angel Smudgie!  

Dear Nancy,
I LOVE that picture of your baby girl - it is adorable - I think you nailed her thoughts - those eyes speak volumes!!!  I always wanted to dress Lee Lee up - but her Daddy wouldn't let me - he didn't think she would appreciate it very much and he was probably right - she might have give me that same 'look' LOL. 

I completely understand how hard it is to look at the photos, for me...especially Lee Lee's eyes - I can't 'really' look...you know?  And forget the videos - I still can't do it...  I'm thinking of you and your beloved Smudgie today...hugs to you and angel hugs to your angel...

Dear Nancy:

LOVE the photo of your sweet Smudgie all dressed up for Halloween.  We tried to dress up Brandy too, but she would have none of it.  She just loved all the children coming for treats and had to greet everybody that came.  It's just not the same, but I guess we'll see how Miriam does.

Sending hugs to you and your angel Smudgie,

Hi Melanie

Thank you for the kind words, so greatly appreciated and thank you for stopping by and wishing my sweet Smudgie a happy 34 weeks at Rainbow Bridge.  Believe me, Smudgie wasn't so thrilled about dressing up, those little horns latest about 30 seconds on her head. And once the horns went flying , Smudgie and my other 3 cats went running for cover....LOL, I could just tell they were thinking, Oh NO, Mom is at it again.   I know what you mean about looking at pictures and videos, especially looking into their eyes, it's so hard. I was having a bad day at work, and I just wanted to see her, so I went into an office and looked at one of her videos and had myself a good cry.  Afterwards I felt a bit better,  but I so wished I could go back in time and jump into that video. As you said, as each day passes I'm closer to seeing her again.  I wish you peace and comfort my friend. Hugs to you, Nancy

Hi Elise,  Awwww, thank you for you sweet words and for stopping by and yes what we won't do for cuteness.  I hope Shiloh is doing good, can't wait to see pictures. I wish you peace and comfort my friend. Hugs to you, Nancy

Hi Diane,  Thank you so much for your sweet words,  I think she is adorable too, I so miss her sweet little face.  I wish you peace and comfort my friend. Hugs to you, Nancy

Hi Barb,  Thank you for the kind words.  Smudgie wasn't having the dressing up either, it latest about 30 seconds on her head. Awwww, that is so sweet about Brandy greeting all the Trick or Treaters, as you said it's just not the same.  Please let me know how Miriam makes out.  I wish you peace and comfort my friend. Hugs to you, Nancy

Hi Nance.......

Awwwww, thank you so much for your sweet post, it means so much to me. Oh how Smudgie hated those little hats, but I couldn't resist, she just looked so cute. I'm sure all of our sweet babies will be enjoying Halloween with some very special treats! Thank you again, you post made me smile and I needed a smile today.

Much peace, love and comfort to you as well.  I hope you dream of your sweet Bedo tonight.

Big Big Hug......

Hi Smudgie......

Happy Halloween my sweet little angel.

Today is Mommy's favorite holiday, but today Mommy has such a heavy heart,  I feel like I have no favorites anymore.

I miss you so much. I'm going to miss you sitting on the top of the couch watching as Mommy gives out the candy.

I know your not going to miss the little hats Mommy would try to get you to wear but only latest seconds on your head.

Happy Halloween at Rainbow Bridge sweet baby, enjoy all the special treats with your friends.

Remember, we are "two peas in a pod".

Mommy's love will never end.

Kisses on the wind......I'll be looking for your signs.

November 4, 2014 (8 Months at Rainbow Bridge)

Dear Smudige,

Today is Tuesday which means it's 35 weeks since you left for Rainbow Bridge,  but it's also the 4th, November 4th which means it's 8 months since I've last seen that beautiful little face.  How is that possible?  As the months tick away and it gets closer to that 1 year mark, it breaks Mommy's heart to think we've been apart so long.

Yesterday when I was opening the window I looked out and saw a Cardinal and being in New York you really don't see Cardinals that much. In fact the last time I saw a Cardinal in our backyard was when you first passed. I like to think you sent Mommy the Cardinal as a sign that you are watching over all of us. You are my sweet little Guardian Angel. I miss you so much and a piece of my heart will always be missing, you will always be Mommy's baby.  Thank you for sending me the Cardinal.

I'm sorry I missed last night's candle ceremony but Mommy was even too sad to go to that, but Mommy will light your "special candle" at St Paul's Chapel today.

Happy 8 months at Rainbow Bridge sweetie, Mommy wants you to enjoy all your special treats with all your sweet friends.  Mommy will have vanilla ice cream today in honor of you.

I love you so much Smudgie, Mommy misses you forever.

Kisses on the wind, until we are together again remember Mommy carries you in her heart.

Mommy's love will never end.........

Dear Nancy,
It is hard to believe that 8 months have passed for you and Smudgie...I know that you miss her very much.  I think that Cardinal is a beautiful sign from your girl - I hope that it comforts your heart to know she is always close by.  

Happy 8 Months Angel Smudgie! You are such a precious baby!

Hugs and peace to you Nancy...

Dear Nancy,
It is hard to believe that is Smudgie's 8 months at the Bridge already! Sometimes we wonder how we have survived for missing them so much! Despite of the pain, there is always some sort of strength comes from the love of our babies! We can not underestimate the love of our little ones! Smudgie even though at the RB, she is always with you in her little loving spirit! I do believe we we listen to our hearts we feel them!
Dear Smudgie:
Wish you a happy eight month at the Bridge and having a blast with our angels! You wise Little girl! You sent mommy a Cardinal, how sweet is that! I always say good thing comes in small little package! I know your love for mom never ends!
Gentle angels hugs and kisses to you! Peace and love to mommy!
Nance, Bedomom

Dearest Melanie,

Thank you so much for wishing my sweet Smudgie a happy 8 months at the bridge, I just can't believe it's been 8 months. 

I know you've had many beautiful "heart" signs from your precious LeeLee so I know when I tell you about Smudgie's cardinal, it will make you smile.
The day before her 8th month anniversary it was a nice day and I wanted to get some fresh air so I opened up my bedroom window, and in a split second I saw the Cardinal land on the fence and then fly away a few moments later,  I have to tell you it made me smile and I haven't been smiling much these last few months.  I've seen a cardinal on a few other occasions, the day after Smudgie passed and a few weeks later I was walking with a good friend of mine and I was telling her about Smudgie's illness and passing and a Cardinal flew out a tree, but I think the best time was when I  was grocery shopping and missing her so much, my heart was hurting and this man walks up to me and asks me the time and when I look up he is wearing a St Louis Cardinal tee - shirt which has a big Red Cardinal on it,  I just had to laugh. It's these little signs from our beloved babies that help us get through the rough times.

Thank you so much for your kindness and for always stopping by to wish my Smudgie a happy anniversary.

Peace, comfort and hugs to you always.

Nancy

Dear Nance,

Thank you so much for your beautiful post, I truly can't believe it's been 8 months. You are so right,  I don't know how we survive the pain of missing them so much, and believe me I still have my bouts of crying, but after a good cry, I feel better and I do feel her in my heart and that truly gives me the strength to go on each day. And I know from reading all your beautiful posts to your beloved  Bedo that he truly lives within your heart and soul. I think I've said this a hundred times, it's amazing how these beautiful little souls get into our hearts and we are forever changed by their love.  If I live to be 100 I will miss her and love her everyday of my life as I'm sure you will with your Bedo.

As for Smudgie's Cardinal,  let me tell you I have bad habit of second guessing signs, sometimes I think, did I really just see that, but Smudgie's Cardinal seems to pop up at very specific times, times when I need it the most and I just can't help but believe.

Thank you again for your kindness and for always stopping by to wish my sweetie a happy anniversary.

Peace, comfort and hugs to you.......

Nancy
