Mom loved me best!

Mommy likes this poem very much, she just read it and now love drops are rolling down her cheeks.

I Loved You Best

So this is where we part, my friend,
And you'll run on, around the bend,
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
New pleasures there you'll surely find.

I will go on, I'll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you've taught.

Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this...I loved you best.

-Jim Willis 2002


Thank you Dogster!!!

Would my friends do something very special for me, please? Light a candle for a dear Catster friend, POO, who has been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor in his throat. Treatments do not promise much hope so his mom and dad Jim are going to love him lots and keep him comfortable and happy for as long as possible. Poo is just 11 years old, the same age as my sisfur Aggie who just left for Rainbow Bridge, and their stories are so similar that Aggie has told Poo she's now his very special Guardian Angel. Here's the link for the candle group. Thank you for doing this for a dear friend in need of prayer.

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years… Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.

May you all be richly blessed this Christmas Day, in the giving of presents and of yourselves to your loved ones, friends and those in need - both human and animals - may the spirit of Christmas fill your hearts with joy.



R.I.P. Tuche

November 5th 2010 12:29 pm

Tuche was a little Pom mix that ended up at the South LA Animal Care & Control facility, he arrived at the "shelter" on November 2, 2010. Tuche was - are you ready for this? - 20 YEARS OLD!!! He was surrendered by his owner which is something I cannot understand, to have a friend for 20 years and then turn your back on him because he's old and has some health problems - what a despicable thing to do to an animal!

Tuche's story was shared on FB and people started mobilizing and contacting rescuers in the LA area and, lo & behold, a rescuer called the shelter and told them she would be there the following morning to pick him up ... but *tears streaming down Ralphie's face* the "shelter" put him to sleep even though they KNEW help was on the way!!!

This is happening all the time in "shelters" across our country and people need to speak up and put a stop to this senseless killing of dogs and cats. These county facilities are funded by YOUR tax dollars and it's the responsibility of every animal lover to ensure that healthy dogs and cats are not put to sleep, that rescuers are given easier access to these animals so they can be pulled from "shelters" and placed in foster homes until loving, forever homes are found for them.

There needs to be an outcry so LOUD that it is heard around the world - a cry of NO MORE SENSELESS KILLING IN OUR "SHELTERS"!! Something needs to be done and if you want to join a wonderful movement, then I recommend you check out No Kill Nation:

It can be done, it is being done already and it needs to spread across the country like wildfire.

I know my mom's heart is hurting because she wanted Tuche to live out the rest of his life in a loving home. You see, my mom loves old dogs and cats, her heart belongs to an 18 1/2 year old Yorkie - me! She knows it's a lot of work caring for an older animal but she also knows the joy of looking into wise old eyes because there is so much love in them, so much peace shining in old eyes.

Tuche could have lived out his life in a loving home, help for Tuche was on the way but the "shelter" would not give him this last gift of love - they could not wait one more day.

If you're wondering why I put quotations marks around the word "shelter", it's because I do not believe most of these facilities act as "shelters". You see, according to Webster's dictionary, shelter means: "That which covers or defends from injury or annoyance; A structure that provides privacy and protection from danger; One who protects; a guardian; a defender; The state of being covered and protected; protection; security."

In my opinion, most of these facilities are not shelters, they're just killing stations where healthy cats and dogs are put to sleep every single day.

Please, do what you can to change these horrible statistics - approximately 5 million cats and dogs are put to sleep in US "shelters" every year.

And tell everyone to SPAY AND NEUTER and to adopt from a rescue league or "shelter"

Until they all have a home!


The truth must be shared!

Voice of the Voiceless
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I am the voice of the voiceless,
Through me the mute shall speak,
Till the deaf world's ear be made to hear
The wrongs of the wordless weak.
From street, from cage, and from kennel,
From stable and zoo, the wail
Of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
Of the mighty against the frail.
Oh, shame on the mothers of mortals
Who have not stooped to teach
Of the sorrow that lies in dear, dumb eyes,
The sorrow that has no speech.
The same force formed the sparrow
That fashioned man the king;
The God of the whole gave a spark of soul
To furred and to feathered thing.
And I am my brother's keeper,
And I will fight his fight,
And speak the word for beast and bird
Till the world shall set things right.

My furblings and I are sharing this poem because this is what our mom believes and this is why the truth must be spoken always and everywhere.


Bittersweet victory

Well, I have a strong feeling HQ was swamped with emails about that MOARRAWR website because it's been canned ... it's a bittersweet victory for all of us who saw it and contacted HQ with our concerns - on the one paw, I'm glad they shut it down but on the other paw it's disappointing to find out Catster/Dogster was connected to a website that had photographs showing dead animals, animals in very disturbing surroundings and some pictures had pretty filthy language printed on them.

What is happening to Catster & Dogster? Is the top cat/dog aware of these things? Sad but true - "You are known by the company you keep".


I'm sad today

I didn't think it was possible to be sad at Rainbow Bridge but I was wrong because I'm feeling sad today.

We've welcomed so many birds, turtles, dolphins, fish and other sea creatures to the Bridge over the past 2 months, they all arrive covered in crude oil so we quickly lead them to the stream of crystal clear water and help them clean up. Then we give them something yummy to eat and make them feel comfortable. A lot of them have sad stories to tell, they've left young ones behind, some of the brown pelican mommies left nests full of eggs that will never hatch ... we try to comfort them with a rainbow hug, we try to take their sadness away and dry their tears.

It breaks my heart to see them here, they're victims of the Deep Horizon disaster that happened in the Gulf of Mexico - it should have never happened, all these beautiful creatures should be living their lives in the beauty of the Gulf, enjoying the tropical breezes as they soar against the blue skies ... swimming and playing in the warm waters of the Gulf.

In my need to understand why this happened, I respectfully approached the Creator of all things and asked him "WHY" ... with eyes full of tears he replied "GREED" - and I wept with him.


I visited Mommy last night!!

I stepped down from Rainbow Bridge last night and set paw on Manchineel court where Mom and Dad live, my old home. I went in, it was almost 1:00 am ... I walked around the house and checked on my kitty siblings - they were sound asleep. I then went into my pawrents' room and barked one single loud WOOF ... Mom was in that in-between stage, not awake yet not asleep - she heard me. She opened her eyes and softly called "Ralphie?" ... she looked at Dad but he was asleep, he didn't hear me because that single bark was meant for Mommy alone. She looked around the room but didn't see me - not yet anyway. She closed her eyes and slept a little. Perhaps an hour went by and she got up to *giggles* use the bathroom ... that's when she saw me, in the dark of the unlit bathroom the silhouette of a little cat ran out followed by the silhouette of a small dog - me!!! Mom thought it was Maggie running out of the bathroom followed by - wait, there's no dog in the house anymore!! She turned on the light to see if Maggie, Aggie or Claw were around - she was alone. That's when she realized she had seen me chasing ... chasing who??? She asked me many times and in her mind she heard me answer "Lucy, it's angel Lucy, Mommy." Yes, it's true, I visited Mommy last night and I brought my newest fur angel friend, Lucy. She arrived at the Bridge last weekend and I welcomed her with open paws. My Mommy and her Mommy have been online friends for over 4 years, they met on the pet loss forum at and they've shared many tears, laughs and wonderful stories of their Bridge angels. I brought Lucy with me so my Mommy could share the beauty of our visit with her Mommy, so she will know Lucy is not alone - she has forever friends at the Bridge.
