Our Dear Sweet Rath.
The King of the Castle
Our Guard Cat
Our first baby. He was one of the many cats born in the ramshackled outbuildings of the Macomb County Jail & the Juvinelle center. He made his way down the street and somehow got into an enclosed porch.
I was the first to meet him and he meowed at me with love from that very first time on. John opened up the door & Rath walked right in the house & into our hearts forever. John fed him a can of albacore & then took him straight to the Vet.
Rath was the first in a long list of adoptees, rescues, & foster animals that have come in & out of our lives for the past 18 years. A lot of the time Rath played Mom & Dad to our new pets & taught them all he knew.
more when I can.................
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 of 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 and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly 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 the 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.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
