” In Loving Memory “
Memorials » Miss Kitty
April 7, 2002 - December 19, 2017
I turned around and there was my 2 year old daughter, carrying Miss Kitty! I have no idea where that kitten came from or how she got into the yard. I put the kitten back outside the fence so she could go back to her momma. About 30 minutes later I could hear a kitten crying from down the street. “Miss Kitty” (as she became known) had crawled up a small tree and was “crying.” I finally decided that her momma wasn’t coming to get her so I “rescued” her from the tree (she was only 4 feet off the ground!) Miss Kitty was with us until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 19, 2017.
Miss Kitty didn’t know that she was a cat. She was raised with approximately 15-20 dogs (we lived in the country and stray dogs always found their way to our house.) She was at the door to greet me, just like the dogs were, when I came home (all excited just like them lol!) She loved to be petted and would lay on our lap’s for hours at a time. At night she slept on the right side of my head every chance she got (I would wake up to her laying on my pillow!) My daughters loved her dearly. My mother also grew very close to Miss Kitty, spoiling her every chance she got!
Miss Kitty, you will be very sorely missed. I take comfort in knowing you are with the other pets that have passed before you. We will remember and think of you always! Rest in peace my dearest Miss Kitty. You are forever in our hearts!
Stacy, Alexis, Angel (and Grandma!)
The Rainbow Bridge Poem:
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
