I debated whether to write this or not. I didn't feel like crying or re-living that horrible day exactly one month ago today but...
Piggy... You came into my life as a gift to my mother on her birthday. Our other cat, Kitta, had gone missing and we forced our father to go to every "pound" to find her. While he was walking through the aisles of cats, you stuck your paw out and hit him on his arm. He turned to look at you and fell in love. We rescued you the next day. You were only a few weeks old. I remembering my brother coming home with you in a box. I was so excited to see the new kitten. The box was opened and out came your huge head. I thought...what is that? You were so different from any other cat I had seen. You were long-haired with multiple colors with a little smashed up face (Persian blood). It took all but 2 seconds for me to fall in love with you. I was 14 years old. We had a special bond. I would come home from school and you would be waiting at the door every day for me. My mother said at the time when the bus would come, you would just sit there and wait...everyday at the same time. I came from a home with an alcoholic father. A home were I was never taught the meaning of the word love and were I learned to always fend for myself because I was the only person that I could trust. No one took care of me. So when you came into my life at that age, when my world was just a nightmare, it made all the difference baby. You were such a beautiful sweet innocent baby. I just wanted to protect you and love you the way that I knew I was capable of. I can't even begin to tell you what you did for me during this time but I think you know baby. You made my life so much better. I had something to love and to love me - unconditionally. This was the greatest gift that you could give me. I learned the true meaning of LOVE. Such a wonderful thing. You and me - we were a team. I think you knew that I needed you more than you needed me. Through all the struggles and the good times, you were there for me. You are my heart - you always were baby. The only thing I couldn't do for you baby was make you live forever. That is my biggest regret - that you had to leave me. Although I know you are in a good place, my angel, I still need you more than ever. I'm still hurting and I don't know that this emptiness in my heart will ever go away. But I want you to know, Piggy, that you saved me. You truly saved me. For this gift I am forever grateful. I am anxious for the day that I can rejoin you my Piggy and whisper in your sweet fuzzy ear that I love you to pieces. Until then, I will always have you in my heart and my mind. Happy One Month Anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge baby. I miss you terribly but I know you are doing well there with your new friends. God bless you my angel. I love you! Thank you saving me Piggy!

Dear Piggy's Mom,
Oh! How hard I know it was for you to write that, but what a beautiful way to remember her- for the happiness and true love she brought you. I wish it wasn't the one month bridgeday for you, or any bridgeday. How we want them to remain by our side forever- I hope that you do feel her love continue to guide you in your life journey. She wants you to live a complete life, she helped set the path for you and she will be there along your way. You are still a team, now she can be with you in ways she couldn't before. She was meant to be yours and will be always. She is such a beauty and you both, really, make a beautiful pair. Soulmates forever. Beautiful One Month Bridgeday, Sweet Piggy! Love, Tweeny's ma

Dear Piggy’s Mom – I’m sorry about your little baby Piggy. I remember the first time I saw a picture of her and I could see how it would be so easy to fall immediately in love with her – such a sweetie pie face. You wrote about how she saved you, and that in and of itself is enough to create that incredibly strong bond you have with her. Then add on all of the unconditional love, the never ending cuddling and purrs, the warmth and true affection and it becomes a true love affair like no other. A soulmate connection, a “team” as you said. So it’s no surprise our hearts are shattered into a million pieces when they have to leave us. When I read your story, I believe that your Piggy came into your life for a purpose – to provide you with strength you didn’t even know you had, so that when it came time, you’d be able to go on with determination and with the understanding of what real love is all about. You are truly blessed as that is quite a gift indeed. I’m a believer that we will all meet again, that our babies, while away from us now, will be waiting for us when it is our time. Know that your Piggy is safely where she needs to be until you meet again. Thinking of you and your Piggy as you remember her on her 1 month anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. To our sweet earth angels that have gone before us . . . we love and miss you so. In warm affection, Rusty’s Mom.

Dear Piggy's Mom,
I am so sorry the one month anniversary was so painful for you. As I read your post I was struck by how many similarities there were with your life with Piggy vs. my life with my Blackie. I truly understand when you say had a special bond with Piggy. I could also swear it was me typing when you wrote how Piggy made your life so much better, that the two of you were a team, that through all the struggles and the good times Piggy was there for you and that Piggy is your heart. I truly understand what you mean when you wrote those words, they are exactly the same for me and my Blackie. So it is with love that I say I hope Piggy's one month anniversary wasn't as painful as you thought it would be and that you were able to feel Piggy's love all the way from the Rainbow Bridge. Take care of yourself, I am sure Piggy would want you to take the strength she gave you and live your life as fully as possible even though she is no longer physically here on earth with you. Thinking of you, Kelly Blackie's mommy

Dearest Piggy's mom
Your tribute to Piggy was beautiful. It brought me to tears as I read about the special bond you have with her. I truly believe that she was a wonderful gift from God brought to you at a time when you needed her most. Our kitties are such amazing little creatures--so MUCH love in such a small package. Piggy will always be with you, guiding your heart. Even though it was a terribly sad milestone for you, I know that Piggy was surrounded by her new friends and happiness on her one month bridge day. Thinking of you, Kate (Gus' mom)

Your sweet girl Piggy was just so very beautiful and serene. Your touching tribute to her brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart. You and she shared such a special bond that was forged by your intense need for her. She came into your life at a time when you really needed a friend, a soulmate...and a confidant and she was ALL that for you. She saved you, but you saved her as well, my dear. You belonged to each other. That is so clear in the photo of the two of you. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope in time you will be able to remember dear Piggy with more smiles than tears. HAPPY ONE MONTH BRIDGEDAY BEAUTIFUL GIRL. PLEASE FIND A WAY TO SHOW YOUR MOM YOU ARE STILL WITH HER EVERY DAY. Sending hugs, Melissa Betsy's forever mom

Dear EmptyNow, Your post touched my heart. I can just feel the bond and the love between you and your precious Piggy. Everytime you post a picture of your darling, I tell you how gorgeous she is and I have to say it again. She is a magnificent baby! Thank you for sharing your pictures.
You said you debated whether to post or not and I think it was very courageous of you. I admire you and I hope it helped you to tell your story. We all have our stories, some different, some similiar but we have all been touched and loved and changed by our beloved furbabies. We are so lucky to have had them. I truly think their spirits stay with us, all around us. They still love us and are watching over us. When you feel lonely talk to your Piggy sing to her even. It helps. You sound like a very loving, wise, and strong young woman. Your life is a tribute to your baby and I am sure she is so proud of you. I wish you peace and comfort. Happy 1 month BridgeDay beautiful Piggy! Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Dear Piggy's Mom,
What a beautiful heartwrenching letter you wrote to your little sweetheart, Piggy - the tears welled up in my eyes, reading it, and feeling so sad with you. It is really a glorious story that you tell, one that hits home with many, if not all of us. She was and still is a gift of Grace to you that is yours forever. It's humbling to realize that a little furbaby can do so much to change a person, change a life, awaken all the good qualities in us that were there to start with. It just took that Special One, your darling Piggy. She is gorgeous, and the picture of the two of you together speaks volumes of a deeply shared love and that you belonged together. Sending you hugs, and thinking of your dear little girl, who is with you always, Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever
