Mom, I didn't want to leave you, and you held me with so much love, and I could see the love in your eyes. You said, though, that it was all right for me to go and gently kissed my face. As I closed my eyes, I saw a beautiful, sparkling Rainbow, and on the other side of the Rainbow were lots of kitties beckoning me to join them. They have taken me under their paws and shown me all around this place of such incredible beauty.|
The sun is nice and warm here, the trees are big and give lots of shade. There are wonderful flowers, singing birds, butterflies, and the grass is so soft under my paws. We have good food and plenty of water and lots of angels' laps to snuggle and nap in.
We share our stories about our earthly parents and I love telling them about you and my loving home there. I have told them how, at about age 12, I was dropped off at the vet's and the folks I had lived with never came back for me. My aunties, Clare and Martha, got me to The Paw'd Squad Animal Rescue and then asked you, Mom, if you would "foster" me and you said yes.
When I stepped out of the carrier and saw you and walked all around the house, I knew I had found my forever home, especially when you said, "She's mine." I was so happy! And you, Mom, Peek-a-Boo, who became my kitty sister, shared so much love throughout our years together. I was with you until almost my 20th year and how purrfect those years were!
I want you to know, Mom, that I feel like a kitten again, that I'm watching over you with love, and I'll be at the Bridge to meet you when you come home, and we'll never be apart again. I love you and wrap my paws around your heart until we meet again and cross the Bridge together. Purrrs of love until then....Nina
12/3/08 - Merry Christmas, precious Nina! You were such a wonderful gift to your mommy, Donna, and she loves you so much. We know that you are sleeping peacefully, all curled up by the fire in the fireplace, in your warm blanket, and peeking once in a while at the silver and gold Christmas trees in the room and running to the windows to watch the gently falling snow outside.

9/10/13 - In memory of Peekaboo from her loving mommy - My darling died this morning; she was 16 years and 3 days old. We are very sad here. I am not sure how Goldie will react. He knew PB was sick. They were both cuddling on my bed last night and we had a petting session. I am so very, very sad. It is so difficult to lose a wonderful pet, a big part of your life.
9/11/13 - We know that Nina and our Tashi, Katy and BG and many others met Peekaboo at the Bridge and that they are showing her all the wondrous and beautiful places to play, the great food to eat, and she met St. Francis and her guardian angel. She will be snoozing in the sunshine, playing in the meadows, chasing butterflies and most of all, watching over you, Donna, with all the love in her heart. She and Nina are your very special angels and they are both tucked in your heart until you're together again. May Peekaboo purr her love to you on the breezes that blow and may you find comfort in knowing that she and Nina are always with you. We love you, Nina, and Peekaboo, beloved of your mommy. Your aunties, Clare and Martha
