This afternoon will be one week for Smokey at the bridge. I know that he is now with his sister Sam and all of your fur kids and likely having a ball. I miss him terribly, but also have a sense of peace that he is with the best comforter ever. I have received many signs that my boy is just fine and I need not worry (even though part of me still does).
I want to thank all of you who have responded to my posts and other posts that I have read. Mary Jo, Loudpurring, Kathy, Kathleen, Melissa, Jerry, ChooChoo, Alana, and everyone, your words of comfort have been a blessing and helped me so much. God has been comforting me in so many ways and one big way is through all of you. My faith in God has been magnified ten fold. My journey with, and to God, likely wouldn't have manifested to this degree were it not for Smokey, Samantha and Twiggy. They have been blessings beyond measure. Please know that I have kept all of you and your fur kids in prayer. Ed, thank you for starting this wonderful site. You have blessed all of us beyond measure. Please keep Smokey in your hearts and prayers today. When I figure out how to do the pictures, I'll post pics of my two angel kitties and my rescue girl (Twiggy) who was sent from heaven 7 months ago. God bless all of you! Marsha

Dear Marsha, I am sure that this is a hard day for you as it has only been a week since your beloved Smokey made his way to the Bridge. However, I am so glad that you have been able to find some peace and comfort as well knowing that he is safe and healthy and running free again up there with his sister and all of our furkids. Losing a furbaby is just like losing a cherished family member and trying to figure out how to go on each day without them in our lives any longer is the hardest thing we have to do. When my Peanut was near the end she required such intense daily care and we did it no problem even while having 6 month old demanding twins to take care of and so when she passed it was like what am I going to do with all this extra time on my hands and it was horrible. Oh how I longed to have to wake up in the middle of the night to carry her out to pee or to struggle with her to take her pills, or to clean up her pees on the floor because she was having kidney issues. But then again I am slowing coming to terms with our decision that we did it at the right time and had to rid her from any further suffering. Smokey will always hold a very special tender place in your heart and you in his. He was a very loved kitty and he knew it.
Happy 1 week Bridge Day Smokey. Send your mom some angel kisses as she misses you so very much today and everyday. Karen

Marsha it's only been 5 days since my Saxon left me and I am DREADING the week anniversary. You are in my prayers. Also, when you figure out how to post pics let me know. I'm having trouble figuring it out. My brain is like mush right now.

It's been a rough week and today was harder than I thought. But, if I told you all of the signs that I have received that Smokey's okay, you'd think I was crazy. And the comfort I'm receiving is beyond measure. Thank you for your posts. Robyn, I will work on the picture thing, but I'm not super tech savvy, so it might take awhile. Thank you both for your posts and Karen, I'll be waiting for angel kisses from Smokey and Sam. May Peanut and Saxon send you angel kisses as well. BTW, Peanut is truly adorable and I know how you feel on the cleaning up everything. I'd keep doing it if it meant I could have my fur kids back, but that they wouldn't be in pain. Marsha

Dear Marsha, I am so very sorry for your loss. You are so lucky to have had many signs from your baby Smokey, and I don't think you're crazy. I do believe! Your little boy must have a very strong spirit and must be very determined to let you know he is OK. He wants you to be at peace. That is wonderful!
Happy 1 week Bridge Day darling Smokey! Keep visiting Mommy, you make her so happy. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom
