My Sister's cat passed on Friday morning. A year ago Little Guy cat was diagnosed with Kidney failure. They Vet gave him two weeks to live. My sister gave him weekly infusions to help keep his health up. He stayed with my sister for a year before giving up his fight. He was such a sweet boy. Please remember my sister in your prayers. She is having a very difficult time right now.

 

 

She sent me this passage today. She said this gave her some comfort.

 

 

Can you imagine a heaven without pets?

 

There is a very special place where beloved pets go after they die. This is only a temporary location. But there are trees and grass and lakes, and everything they love. Here they can play and eat and sleep, even better than they did, before they died. Now, there are no aches or worries or dangers of any kind to trouble or threaten them. The only joy missing is their beloved human companion, you.

 

All health is restored completely, and all injuries are healed. Dogs and cats play with each other like youngsters, and they do not have time to feel lonely for you. They miss you, and with the special wisdom that animals have, they trust that this condition will get better. And they confidently wait as they frolic.

 

A wonderful day will come for each of them, when in the middle of playing they will suddenly feel something is different. And all their senses will be at the height of excitement and exuberance. They will sniff the air and look off in the distance where they recognize that dearly loved special presence. Then they will call out in elation, and with eyes shining and tail going wild, tear off at a full gallop, almost flying over the green grass.

 

Your expected arrival has been sensed, and now there is nothing that can keep the two of you apart, ever again. As you run toward each other the tears flow from your eyes. Your pet leaps into your arms, and you cling together in jubilant reunion. The joyous kisses are all over your face, and you kiss back, just as ecstatically. Your hands so lovingly caress once more the beloved fur, the head and neck and body you knew so well. And you look into each other’s loving eyes, and all those old, wonderful shared feelings are back, again.

 

And then something will call the both of you on, to a different field of warmth and nurture, where all the love you knew now comes to fruition. With your pet, you leave that special waiting area, walk into the main part of heaven, and begin a new existence there, together.

 

If you accept that pets can love us as much as we do them, then the logic is clear and cannot be denied. If you believe that there is a heaven for people, then they must be there, waiting for us, when we cross over. Heaven is love, and pets always share that with us.

Hugz to your sister in this time of sorrow. Run free Little Guy... wait for your Mom at the bridge. :f_pink

We need to act responsibly toward the plants and animals with whom we share the world, who have no voice, but whose presence make our world a blessed place.

I'm so sorry about Little Guy. We've lost a cat to kidney failure and it is hard. You work so hard to keep them hydrated and give them meds, and get them to eat when their appetite is off, that when they go you feel you failed somehow. The emotional rollercoaster of one good day and then a bad day is so stressful. Please tell your sister that she gave him a year that he wouldn't have had without her. :grouphug
