Over the rainbow
- CH Renie Czech Star, CZ
Renie is our first ragdoll love. Although she left us suddenly and too early, we know she is always around us. Her blue eyes will always follow me.
Miki...my first cat love, my soulmate. He appeared in my life so suddenly and he went out of it in the same way. I am endlessly grateful to have him in my life for 12 amazing years. Even during his life he became a legend among our family and friends because of his great and loving personality. He traveled with us often, he moved with us in another city but he never minded it. For him the most important thing was to have me nearby. Then everything was all right. We will always remember him.
The Legend of Rainbow Bridge
From the book, The Legend of Rainbow Bridge by William N. Britton
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When a pet dies who has been especially close to a person here on earth,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are beautiful meadows and grassy hills there
for all our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is always plenty of their favorite food to eat,
plenty of fresh spring water for them to drink,
and every day is filled with sunshine so our little friends are warm and comfortable.
All the pets that had been ill or old are now restored to health and youth.
Those that had been hurt or maimed are now whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The pets we loved are happy and content except for one small thing.
Each one misses someone very special who was left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes
when one of them suddenly stops and looks off into the distance hills.
It is as if they heard a whistle or were given a signal of some kind.
Their eyes are bright and intent. Their body begins to quiver.
All at once they break away from the group, flying like a deer over the grass,
their little legs carrying them faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you hug and cling to them in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
Happy kisses rain upon your face.
Your hands once again caress the beloved head.
You look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet so long gone from your life,
but never absent from your heart.
Then with your beloved pet by your side, you will cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
Your Sacred Circle is now complete again.
