In memory of my best friend, Precious
I thought I would share some of the poems and post that I made about Precious over the months. Maybe you can all share in our love affair.

The way to Cat Heaven is a field of sweet grass,
where crickets and butterflies play.
A cat may be late getting to Heaven.......
there is so much fun on the way!
But an angel will wait at the yellow front door,
wait till a kitty comes home.
And when he arrives, he will give her a kiss and
some milk in a bowl of her own.
There are trees in Cat Heaven, trees made just for cats,
trees growing so green and so high,
But no one gets stuck in a tree anymore..........
If a cat wants down, she will fly.
And oh all the toys! Kitty toys everywhere!
Thousands and thousands go by.
There are buttons and baubles and small catnip afloat in the sky!
There are angels, of course, with soft angel laps,
where kitties can purr loud and strong.
The angels will rub kitty noses and ears,
and sing them a Cat Heaven song.
And when cats are hungry, there is God's kitchen counter,
all covered with white kitty dishes,
full of tuna and salmon and mounds of sardines,
and wonderful little pink fishes.
The cats in Cat Heaven are so loved and spoiled,
God lets them all lie on his bed,
He walks in His garden with a good black book,
and a kitty asleep on His head.
Then when a cat needs to, she may just simply ponder,
and watch the blue world deep and wide,
she will watch the old house where she once lived and wandered,
and the people who loved her inside.
All cats love Heaven, they know the way there,
they know where the angel cats fly,
They will turn past the stars, and the moon, and the sun,
to curl up with God in the sky.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
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, 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 each 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. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run 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.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
