Cat of the Day

Sue Ann Nivens was a very sweet, lovable kitty that we lost recently at the age of five. She is less than a year old in this photo taken at Christmas 2003, playing with a Christmas bow like a happy kitty should. This poor baby had a really rotten break in life for her last couple of years. She had a heart murmur that later developed into kidney failure, and we finally lost her a couple of weeks ago. She had always been a delicate little cat. She was a triplet with her nearly identical brothers, Murray Slaughter and Ted Baxter. She also had two sisters named Georgette Baxter and Rhoda Morgenstern. We adopted the whole litter when they showed up in our neighborhood as strays with ringworm. After doctoring the kittens back to health, we added them to our cat family. We always want to remember Sue Ann just as she looks in this photo, a very happy Christmas kitty.

Here is something a friend sent to me some time time ago when our first bunny died...May it bring some peace to your mind...


There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up! The nose twitches. The ears are up. The eyes are staring. And this one suddenly runs from the group.
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusted pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
