Remembering Friends


Today, we celebrate Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Established in 2015 by Deb Barnes (The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey), this special day is for pet guardians to honor the memory of those beloved pets in their life they have lost but never forgotten. It’s held every year on August 28, in honor of the day Deb had to say goodbye to her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, the meow author of Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond.

In the past, we have remembered our family members who have received their wings and gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

This year, we are honoring our sweet Fiona who lost her battle with CKD on December 1. Instead of remembering all of the Kitties Blue angels, however, we are remembering our angel anipals with a special graphic.


Remembering Friends on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.


So many of our anipals are as dear to our hearts as our own, and we miss them terribly. So, we decided to remember and honor them today. Kitties Blue and I know that many more friends have received their wings during this past year, but it was not possible to list all those here. If we have missed anyone who was especially dear to you, please accept our apologies.

These are the angels in our graphic, beginning in the upper left corner and continuing clockwise.

This is a blog hop. If you have written a remembrance post today, visit Zee and Zoey (link in first paragraph) to add the link to your post.

We send our condolences to all who lost a beloved family member in the past year as well as purrs, prayers and POTP as your hearts continue to heal.

Love, purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Mom Janet

I love that graphic! Fiona is such a beautiful girl – every bit as much on the inside as the outside. She was the first kitty in the Blogosphere that I felt a special connection to for some reason. Some things can’t be put into words.

Dear Everyone,
thank you for including Queen Penelope in your Rainbow Bridge Remembrance. I bet her and Fiona had a great time reading all the blogs today.
Mommy has a quote on the fridge that she read to me while making our breakfast it says, “Some angles choose fur instead of wings”.
I believe you are surrounded by many angels!
Purrs Marvelous

That is a beautiful graphic and a wonderful way to remember the pals we’ve lost in the past year. Sending purrs & prayers of comfort to all who are feeling a loss today.

Pam and Teddy August 28, 2017 at 6:47 am

What a beautiful graphic with sweet Angel Fiona as the “centerpiece”……we all really did lose a lot of wonderful “babies” this past year and there will be a lot of memories shared today in their honor. Thanks for including Sammy in your poster……we are trying to keep the “happy” in our day because he really did make me SO VERY happy.

Love and Hugs,
Pam (and Ted too)

A beautiful remembrance. Today a photo of my cat Trinity, whom I lost to brain and lung cancer last November 9, came up in my Facebook feed. She was the sweetest cat, and I miss her so much.
