Sunday was such a sad day for me and M. as it was for many of our Twitter friends. We got the sad news dat Rosie (MedusaJ) crossed the Rainbow Bridge unexpedly very early dat morning after being rushed to the Vet by her mum.
After having very leaky eyes and spending time taling to Twitter friends, I told M I wanted to do somethig special for Rosie and her mom cuz I was feeling bad we didn't have a chance to tell her how much we loved her. I wanted to honor her in my bloggy. A day later M had a chance to talk to Rosie's mum, and she gave us permission to use any picture we wanted. The one at the top is my favorite - Rosie looking happy & waving her tail high.
I always felt close to Rosie. We used to joke and call ourseves the toothless buddies. We even talked about starting a "toothless kitty club" cuz I has no toothies and Rosie was almost toothless. Me memory isn't good so I can't member how many toothes she had left, but it wasn't more den 4 or 5, if even dat many. I have to giggle now because we had so much fun planning and trying to member who else was toothless to invite to the club.
The picture on the left is of Rosie in her garden. I always envied Rosie cuz she got to go outside in her garden and be free, while I'm teathered to a leash.
Rosie never thought of herself as bootiful, but just look at dat bootiful girl on the right in her garden. She was really gorgeous. She must have been too cuz she had several tom cats interested in her. (Including me, but don't say anything cuz I don't think I every told anyone dat before. I always felt I was no match for dat Rosie. What a gal!)
I member the day her mom bought Rosie the cute igglo. If I member right, Rosie got in it for bout 2 minutes, den got out. Dat was the last time we saw the igloo. It makes me smile again now cuz she much preferred boxes and told me she hated that thing. That was our Rosie - independent and knew her own mind.
M told me dat she likes to believe kitties and doggies become angels when they cross over the bridge because it helps her cope with the loss. After they are welcomed by PepiSmartDog and/or one of his special welcoming crew, they are taken to meet an angel and given their wings. They then have the freedom to return to visit us and their families, if they choose, or they can stay there and watch over us, protect us, and romp in the fields full of flowers and chase butterflies. I remembered a picture we saw one time and wanted to show you how we picture Rosie meeting dat special angel.
Fly high bootiful Rosie. I will miss you on earth but feel you are happy now and you don't have to worry abuot any more vets stealing your body parts- or toothies! We love you, will never forget you, and know we will be together again some day when we too cross dat bdige. Love you girl
Your pal Mario.
