if you have some light to spare, please send it to Pollyanna, for a gentle passage

over the Rainbow Bridge.

Polly came to me from the shelter 7 years ago with an undiagnosed liver disease. I had thought she would leave a couple years ago, but when Luna came she found a new purpose in teaching him how to properly treat a kitty. The year before last, I found her strutting around looking very proud of herself, only to discover that after several years retirement, she had unexpectedly dispatched a mouse.

In the past year she has looked increasingly unkempt (she is very old), and now I believe is in liver failure. She stopped eating more than a couple mouthfuls of dinner a couple weeks ago, although was still cleaning up her breakfast. Then a couple days ago, she stopped eating altogether. Tonight, she only touched her nose to her warm water. She is very frail, although still stretches up to be petted. This morning I could still hear her purring, but not so much tonight. I did see her walk to the sunny side of the barn on my way to work, so she spent a least some time napping in the sun. Tonight, Jake, Luna and Dahli all joined me in petting and nuzzling her. I think she is down to her last days, if not hours... She is a very good kitty and I am sure Algiers will be there to greet her.

8. so sorry magical thyme


Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you.....
I loved you so --
'twas Heaven here with you.

9. To the Great Kitty Mother in the Sky.

It used to help with the kids, using the species-appropriate Mother ... and who knows that it isn't true.

10. Blessings to you this Christmas Eve..

for your kindness to a totally awesome cat. You did all you could, and all she could ask for. Soon she may be off to cat heaven - which is mouse hell, by the way.

13. There are two kinds of people in this world,

those who allow pets into their lives and those who don't. And for those that do, those creatures become members of the family. We love them and cherish them and they return that love unconditionally. And they remain with is for much too short a time. We lost our beloved dog, Sancho, a few months ago. I know what you are going through. All I can tell you is that I believe with every fiber of my being is that if there is some sort of existence after this life, then that existence exists for our pets as well as us. If God is love, then how could our pets not have souls?

The Rainbow Bridge is simply that concept made visible. My thoughts go out to you and Polly. Take comfort that she knew you and knew she was loved and she loved you in return.
