Blackie my kitten

Blackie my kitten

My dear friend, Gnat Sue (Blackie) - 17 September 2011 to 19 March 2018. Beloved dear Blackie, I remember your little squeaks as a brave kitten, as you moved to our home in the country.

You were not afraid of the birds and animals, and you befriended them all. Do you remember when your little kitten tail, which was so tatty like a used pipe cleaner fell off?

Your friends found a lyrebird tail, and plaited you the most beautiful tail - the kangaroos could not be smart to you now how their tails were superior, and no, the Kookaburras could not laugh at you tailless anymore - instead they laughed at their own follies.

You gave me the strength to go on during your love, bravery and devotion during my ill health. You beautiful creature of God. You taught me to love an animal.

Now Blackie, seeing you suffer so much from your continual kidney infections, it was so hard for me to finally have you put to sleep to stop you suffering.

Forgive me for taking your precious life Blackie - I know how hard you tried to heal yourself by drinking lots of water and eating grass and co-operating with your Vet. Everywhere I look, I see you here at our little home - our little cottage in the country.

I miss you each night, morning and always. I love you Blackie. As I told you every day of your life... I promise I will always love you Blackie.

Please watch over our little home and keep us safe. My sister told me of a place called Rainbow Bridge - Please wait for me at Rainbow Bridge Blackie, when we shall meet again and never ever part. I love you my darling. You are in my life, dreams and prayers.

My dear friend, Gnat Sue (Blackie) - 17 September 2011 to 19 March 2018.

My beautiful girl, Gnat Sue (Blackie) - 17 September 2011 to 19 March 2018. My darling Gnat Sue, it is one year today since you left my heart beating a little slower - grieving that you are not here with me in our little cottage in the country. Your illness made you leave this world to search for Rainbow Bridge. I look at your star in the southern heavens Blackie, and it grows a little brighter each night, however you seem so far away. As I said to you from kittenhood Blackie, I love you, I promise I will always love you my darling.

As we again approach winter Blackie, I will wait for your soft steps on our bed, knowing that you will keep us warm.

I guess you have found Rainbow Bridge Blackie. I do not care for human heaven Blackie. Please wait for me at that bridge, Rainbow Bridge, and let us walk together over it. Wait for me Blackie please, you beautiful creature of God. I love you.

From Kevin.

Run free at Rainbow Bridge you wonderful little girl. You gave Kev so much. The kangaroos and wallabies, the kookaburras and possums, the cockatoos and lorikeats and butcher birds.......they all miss your friendship. I know you have given Kev permission to adopt another little fur child desperately in need of love. By giving your kind permission, you have helped ease a little of his pain. Thank you for looking after my little brother so well during your very short but earnest time on Earth. I know Kev will never forget you, snd even though I never met you, all the pics and stories that Kev showed and told me, make me feel as thoigh I too, have heard your contented purrs and felt your soft, silky fur. Enjoy Rainbow Bridge for now, Darling Gnat Sue

How my eyes just filled with tears while reading your tribute to your dear friend.
Your absolute love and kindness for your sweet little cat shines from the page.
It sounds like Blackie had some problems, but rose to the occasion.
I am so sorry for your heartache. We have felt the sting of such within the past year. We had to go through the same agonizing decision.
The Rainbow Bridge is filled with our wondrous pets who await us with joy in their hearts and boundless love. This I truly believe.
