Today we have the opportunity to remember our pets that have transitioned to life at the Rainbow Bridge with Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. There they wait to be reunited with their humans. Too many of our friends received their angel wings this past year, and we have remembered them throughout the year. Though, I won’t be listing them here; each of them is in our hearts and thoughts, and their humans are in our prayers.
Dad Tom and I have two woofies, Smack and Poppy, at the Bridge. We also have 12 kitties currently waiting for us: Skooter, Steamer, Daphne, Thelma, Louise, Chloe, Twinkle, Madison, MacKenzie, Fiona, Lily Olivia and Mauricio. Each was special in his/her own way, and we miss them all.
My art for Athena Cat Goddess’ Caturday Art blog hop is in remembrance of three special kitties. Just over one year ago, our sweet and gentle (Mau)ricio left us, and then six-weeks later his beautiful and equally sweet wife Allie (Friends Furever) flew away to join him on September 3, 2020. And this year on April 19, Lisbeth’s handsome and loving boyfriend Charles joined Allie and Mau and all the other Cat Scout angels. We miss these special cats dearly and always will, so we honor them today.
This is our entry in Athena’s blog hop. If you would like to join Allie, Mau and Charles there, click on Athena’s badge.
History of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day
Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day was started by Deb Barnes from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey. It came from her desire to find the love, beauty and dignity in saying goodbye to Jazz, her Ragdoll cat, who she let go of on August 28, 2013. Each year we use this day to remember our beloved furry friends that have left us. Deb is hosting a blog hop, which you can find here.
Sunday Selfies Reminder
Tomorrow is the last Sunday in August. I don’t know where the year has gone. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. I am definitely ready for this ghastly hot summer to be behind us, but not ready for 2022. Anyhoo, tomorrow is the day when we all put on our happy faces and take our selfies. We always look forward to seeing just how adorable each of you are. And we know all your fans and friends do as well. So, please join us. We always appreciate your participation and support.
