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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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.

Thank you for all the well wishes. Lucy is gone now, the vets couldn't save her, she had a genetic problem that couldn't be corrected. I did not get to see her befoe she died. Lucy is about 12 weeks old and she has been with us for 4 weeks During that time, she brought us alot of happiness. She did not appear to be sick or unhappy for the 4 weeks i had her. She's a very very happy cat and is willing to be friends with everyone who came to the house. She is also abit bossy at times and demanded her meals to be served before ours. She also made sure to have a sniff at our food and pawed at our food before we ate it.

The vets was very surprised that she had lived this long. I believe that she came into our lives for a reason.

I want to believe that she's in a better place now.

Oh, I am so very sorry. Lucy sounds like she was a very special kitten who was so lucky to spend 1/3 of her life in such loving surroundings. My sister had a cat who died much too young from an infection; the vet figured that her immune system wasn't strong as she was the runt of a street cat's litter. My sister was incredibly sad, but also grateful that she was able to give Hannah a loving home for the short time she was on this planet. I like to think that the animals who have passed are all spending eternity in a much better place. Goodbye, Lucy. Godspeed.

Alison, I've been reading about Lucy for a while without ever commenting.
She seemed like the sweetest kitten. And your words brought tears to my eyes. May she rest in that fantastic rain bow in peace. xxx
