Memories of Domino
He found me in an unlikely place. He was lost, sick and hurt. He found me after the storm and somehow understood that I would help him. Home he came with me and we've been together since- through thick and thin. With troubles and a deadly disease he was a brave little guy. He fought for life and gave me his love. I will always remember him and there will be a place in my heart that is empty until we meet again at Rainbow Bridge. Sleep well Fifat and rest until that day .
I put you in the pine forest because of the beautiful music the wind plays through the pines. You used to love playing in the stream that runs by.
Feb.6,11 Hi Domino.Today is your anniversary so I'm writing to say we love you. Lucy and I are remembering the day you left us two years ago. We feel so alone without you. I know, though, you are happy at the Bridge with all your fur baby and feathered friends to play with. It has been a terrible winter with too much snow and it doesn't look like it will ease up very soon. I tried to get to Florida where the warm weather is but the bad weather prevented travel. So, I'll just wait for Spring when everything begins anew. Stay warm and have fun at th Bridge. There is too much snow to get to your resting place so we will see you later. Bye for now, Dad
Feb. 25,2011 Hi Fifat. Well it's almost Springtime here with a late dusting of snow. I'm looking forward to Springtime as well as is Lucy. It has been a long Winter but God starts everything new in the Spring and we are refreshed. I plan a birthday party for you in April when you and I first met in 1989. The England family will come and celebrate with me and Lucy. Hope I can finally get a name plate for your resting place. I know you are having fun at the Bridge with all the fur babies. Take care and Dad will see you later.
March 13,11 Hi Fifat. Just stopped by to say hello and Dad still misses you so much. I look at the photos I have of you and me ofter and cry. Have finally ordered a stepping stone for your resting place with paw prints and it says cats leave memories on our hearts. Boy that's the truth. So I'll place it on your place to remind us of our loss. Lucy is fine and sometimes she barks for no apparent reason. I wonder if you have returned and Dad can't see you but Lucy might. It's slowly warming up but Spring has not fully come yet. I planted some lettuce, radishes and onions anyway. Thought of you playing in the garden. Take care baby boy and have fun at the Bridge.
March 21,11. Hi Domino It's finally turned Spring and I'm planning a party to celebrate your 22 birthday. Mischell, her family and maybe Dub will be here , we'll have a cook out and lay the walking stone on your resting place. Today I changed your song to "Never Walk Alone". I thought you might like it because you'll never walk alone little boy. And someday Dad and Lucy will join you at the Bridge. Then, we'll all be together again and walk together forever. I trust God to make this so. Love you and miss you Fifat. Have fun till Dad comes Bye for now.
Hi Fifat, Finally got the music back I like the Never Walk Alone Melody so enjoy being with you to listen. I know things are beautiful where you're at so have fun little boy. Lucy sleeps a lot but really enjoys going with me in the car so I take her when I can. We miss you. See you later. Bye for now
March 31,11 Hi baby boy. Just wanted to tell you that Dad finally got a memorial plaque on your resting place and this Saturday we will lay a stepping stone on your resting place. It says "Cats leave paw prints on our hearts". I think it's really pretty and should mark your spot for years to come.I know you are not there but you are at Rainbows Bridge and playing with all the fur babies. Lot's of fun I bet. So keep having fun and I'll see you some day. Dad
June,2011 Hi Fifat, It's been a while since my last visit and I'm sorry. Still miss my baby boy cat. In May we had a party celebrating your birthday and laid a plaque on your resting place. Dad's been busy with garden and lots of other chores. Wish you could be here but better still you're in a beautiful place, I know. Lucy says hi and she sure would like to see you and lick you again, I also know. So have fun Fifat and dad will visit again soon. Haven't been able to get your music on your site but the computer is getting old so Probably won't. Take care and I'll see you soon.
Sept, 2011 Hi Domino, Dad's here. It's been too long since I talked to my little boy. I know you're doing OK at the Bridge but I sure miss you. Fall will soon be here and I need to clean up your resting place and uncover your stone. I'll do that today. I'm doing OK and planning some hunting this fall. I finally got your music back on line. I guess it was the adobe system that wasn't working. I'll talk to you again before winter comes so have fun and I'll see you soon.
November, 2011 Hi Domino. Well, it's getting along near winter now so I'm changing to a winter scene at your residency. I recently placed a picture of you and me on face book for all to see. It's the one of me kneeling and holding you. I always loved it. Facebook is a computer site that many people use to correspond. Sure miss my little buddy. I was at your resting spot recently and cleaned off the stepping stone on your spot. The Pines drop leaves and cover it with brown, soft cover but I like to keep it open. Lucy is doing fine. She has grown into such a beautiful young lady. She is four now. She went to the Vet Wednesday for her annual vaccinations. Had her teeth cleaned also. It also cleaned my billfold but she is worth it. She really keeps me in good company. I know she misses you. Sometimes she just sits on the sidewalk where she used to play with you and looks far away kind of wondering, I think. I was so sad when I couldn't do more to save you from from your illness. Someday she and I will see you again. I know you are warm and well at Rainbows Bridge and having fun with all your friends. Till that day little friend I'll say goodbye for now. Dad
January,2012 Hi Fifat, Here we are entering another year. You left us two years ago and Lucy and I still miss our Fifat so much. Your resting spot still has a marker with your memory and walking stone. "Cats leave paw prints on our hearts". You sure did little boy. I just found a poor little pup that some in-human dropped off. Took her to the vet to be hopefully placed in a good home. Some people are so heartless to leave their pets alone with nowhere to go. She was starving so we fed her an hopefully she will find a good home. Remember the old mulberry tree out front? I saw stray yellow tabby emerge from the big hole in the base last week. Haven't seen it since so it was finding a warm nest to hole up in while the temperature got below 0 last week. Well little guy I know you are having fun at the bridge so keep playing with all your friends and Dad & Lucy will see you there someday. I'm having trouble with an old Kidney stone so the Drs. are trying to remove it. Haven't been feeling very well but I'm getting better. Lucy and I will go for a walk this morning. We both need the exercise. Stay happy and we'll see you later Fifat. Love you.
February 6,12 Hi Domino, Lucy is here with me to wish you the best of times. It has been three years since you left us and we still love and miss you so much. We know you are safe and well with all your fur baby friends and we hope the white doves are also with you. We lost them when I had knee surgery in Dec.09. They weren't properly care for. I'm so sorry for that. I wish we could have you and them return for a reunion. Wouldn't that be so much fun. They used to fly high and wide. They were so beautiful. You were beautiful too. Dad had a kidney stone removed but I'm recovering and doing well. Lucy is fine. She is always hungry. Can't feed her too much. It's not healthy for her. Well little boy we'll say goodbye for now and see you another time soon. Love you. Lucy and Dad.
Sept 30,2012 Hi Domino! Sorry little boy, Dad hasn't been here this summer. It was so hot you didn't miss anything. It's Fall now and things are getting back to normal. Lucy is still here and we both miss our little boy-friend. Hope you are having fun with all your friends at the bridge. I cleaned your resting place recently. The pine needles really get thick on your spot. But your step stone is clear to read now. The deer were hungry and dry this year so they used the garden a lot so we didn't get much to eat from it. Saw a four point buck across the road yesterday and he was back last night. Changed your site to Fall scenery now so enjoy. Got to go and mow the front yard. See you soon little boy
Feb.2013, Hi Domino. Gosh it's almost Spring here in the Ozarks again. Lucy and I have missed our Fifat. I'm just getting over the flu and it wasn't fun. Lucy and me don't get out and play when I'm like this but we will soon. Hope you're having fun with your buddies at the Bridge. I try to keep your resting spot, under the pine trees, cleaned off. Your stepping stone is still there and the deer visit often. Lucy scents them at night while thy are in there. Well Buddy, I keep the old place going til I meet you again, someday, at the Bridge. Won't that be somethin... Love you Domino.
May 14,03 Hi Domino, It's so good to visit with my little boy. I know you are well and having fun at the Bridge. It's about summer now so I'll change your scenery... Hope yopu like it. Karen signed you guest book and I bet you have met her little boy Bob. She sent you a yummy sandwich and she hopes you will send a butterfly to me. You Mommy sent one after she left us so I know it can happen. Take care little guy and have fun till Lucy and I see you at the Brigge. Love you, Dad
Feb 5, 2014. Hi Domino, Guess Dad has been neglecting your site but I think about you a lot little guy. It has been a cold and snowy winter here this year and now already it has been five years since you left us. Lucy is getting a little gray around her muzzle. She is fine and says hello Fifat. We try to get out and do some hunting but it's too cold now that she and I are getting older. So we will just take things a little slower now and continue missing our Fifat
I checked your resting place and cleaned it. You stone is there in memory of you. Have fun with your buddies at bridge and Dad and Lucy will see you some day.
Mar,2014 Hi Domino, Well Spring has finally arrived. Although it's still a little cool out I'm sure it will warm up soon. Hope my little boy is happy and doing well. Lucy and I miss you. We have had two roosters coming up from the Steenrod's. I feed them and Lucy points at them. She would like to chase them but I have scolded her and she now knows to hold on them. It is funny to watch her point them like they were wild game birds. Well that's her job, isn't it? Changing your scenery to Spring now so things will be refreshed for you. Miss you little boy. Can't wait to see you again some day at the Bridge, Rest easy and have fun till next time. Dad
