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 of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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.


Today we said goodbye to Sepp, my very first grandkitty. He waits for us at the Rainbow Bridge.....

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of a dear friend. May you find comfort that you will meet at the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for sharing about that place, for I have a few friends who I will now know I will get to see again too.
Take care.

My friend Lisa mentioned that, too. Seppie will be waiting for us, but he'll be happily playing Jungle Kitty in the mean time.
