All of us have
lost a beloved pet in our lives and it effects you just
as much as losing a human family member. They are a part
of our family forever.
We have created
this page to honour those animals that have brought us so
much joy. If you have any photos of your pets that have
gone to the Rainbow Bridge, please email
them to me and I will place them here as a tribute.
For those of you who don't know the Rainbow Bridge poem,
here it is:
The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of Heaven
is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that
has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes
to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all our
special friends so they can run and play together. There
is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are
warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had
been ill or old are restored to health and vigor; those
who were hurt and maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days gone by.
These animals are happy and content, except for one small
thing; they each had someone very special to them who had
to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the
day comes when suddenly one stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers. Suddenly
he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and
when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling
together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The
happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress
that beloved head and you look once more into the trusting
eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life, but never
absent from your heart.
And then you cross the Rainbow

by a Katie's Place Volunteer
have lost our beloved Hutch. He came
to us almost two years ago lonely and afraid. Inside
and out, Hutch had strength. He came to trust and
love us. We became his family and his home.
He continually graced
our lives, patiently waiting each day to greet us
at his door. He nurtured the young, frightened, FIV/FeLV
cats. He played with them and protected them. Hutch
was the king of his castle. He held the power among
the adult cats and few would challenge his authority.
For the last few months, his illness had been wearing
He no longer waited
for us. He took very little interest in life. He was
not eating or drinking and he was fading before our
eyes. The time had come to let him go with dignity.
We will miss him, but we are grateful to have loved

a cat he feels like your own. We miss him.
