Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day:RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay [500px]

Hosted by Deborah Barnes : http://zeezoey.com/ A special day to remember all our friends that have gone to the bridge to wait for us there. Over the years, I have lost many rabbits, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish and hermit crabs too. I felt a loss over each and every one of them, but one in particular truly broke my heart.

My KaChoo was my first official cat, I adopted her in 1994 when she was a kitten. I used to always tell her she had to give me 20 years, but it wasn’t to be, she went to the Bridge at 16 and a half. We were very bonded and I will always miss her.

My hubby had a cat when we got married and she lived to be 19, her name was Patches, but he always called her Ratchie – I scanned a photo of her, but it is in an Adobe file and as you all know, I am technologically challenged.

We also lost Brina in 2011, she was a 3-legged tortie persian that I adopted from my sister when she was already older.

And beautiful Barney left us is 2013 . I pray we don’t have any more loss for a long time. I don’t know if there is an actual rainbow bridge or not, but I know all these pure souls would go to Heaven.

I am co-hosting the Feeling Beachie’s Follow Friday Fill-In Fun, but I didn’t want to interfere with this special day so I will post my fill-ins tomorrow.

  1. Yes it sure is hard when they have to leave us.
    We have 4 angel kitties. Groucho, whose RB day was yesterday many years ago, Suki, Simba and Toki…all meezers like us, a chocolate, a seal and two blue points.DSending lits pf hugs.

  2. For me it is tough to look at photos like that. There is too much illness and death around. I put the stories and photos of my earlier cats on a special blog page. People look at it. You could do that with this post here, if you wanted. Then it would not scroll away into oblivion but be available for all to see easily whenever. Just a thought. It is one page I do not want to update. Try to keep happy thoughts. It is sad to remember mine, but those were happy days in many respects when they were here. Perhaps I will call attention to remembrance day, or maybe not. . . .

    PS Thanks for the vote–I owe you one.

    • That is a good idea to have a special area on the blog for remembering them. I agree that I would not want to have to update it. You’re welcome for the vote- anytime.

  3. Soft places in our hearts and sweet memories in our minds of those we’ve love and lost through the years……This is quite a remembrance day all over the blogosphere. Thanks for sharing yours with us!
