Just this side of heaven lies the Rainbow Bridge

When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge.  It makes friends with other animals and frolics over rolling hills and peaceful, lush meadows of green.

Our pets do not thirst or hunger.  The old and sick are made young once more; the maimed and the ill become healed and strong.  They are as healthy and playful as we remember them in days gone by.

Though happy and content, they still miss someone very special, someone they had to leave behind.

Together, the animals chase and play, but the day comes when a pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance... bright eyes intent, eager body quivering.  Suddenly recognizing you, your pet bounds quickly across the green fields and into your embrace.  You celebrate in joyous reunion.  You will never again separate.  Happy tears and kisses are warm and plenty; your hands caress the face you missed.  You look once more into the loving eyes of your pet and know you never really parted.  You realize that though out of sight, your love had been remembered.

And now, you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

We got Anna in Jan. 2003 when we lived in Colorado. She was about 1 1/2 years old at the time.

On the night of June 9, 2006, she ran out of the garage when a door wasn't completely closed. She ran a couple blocks away where she was hit by a car and killed sometime within the next 2 days.

Scott rescued Arnold from a co-worker in 1994. This person was a steroid junkie body builder who was going through a divorce and took his frustrations out on Arnold. Arnold was and will always be "The King" of all our cats.

He died of old age at almost 18 years on Jan. 6, 2011

We got Spook from friends who rescued him from children in an alley in 1997. We estimated his age when we got him to be around 1 1/2 years old.

He died of old age on Apr. 12, 2011

We brought Bumper home from the Completely Cat Clinic in Aug of 2001. We estimated her birthday to be in April 2001. She was a psychotic little thing but we really loved her. In her old age, hip dysplasia got so bad she could sometimes not even stand up. At that point, we knew it was time.

She died of old age on Aug. 21, 2018

We brought Suzi home in Oct. 1999. She was about 8 weeks old when we got her. Over the course of her long life, she was a very healthy little princess.

She died of old age on Jan. 24, 2017

We got Sheba in March of 2001.  She was just 8 months old.

In July 2006, she was diagnosed with cancer in her spleen, a degenerative retinal problem which caused almost complete blindness and a malfunctioning thyroid. All of these conditions caused her to lose 20 lbs. in just 2 months. She was put to sleep on Aug. 5, 2006.

We got Seth in Jan. of 2001. He was 4 months old.

He lived a long and happy life and was put to sleep on June 12, 2012.

We brought Sheela home on 1/4/10. She was adopted from SCLP (Saunders County Lost Pets). We don't know her birthday but she was around 3 years old when we got her so we're going to estimate it at Jan. 2007.

In June of 2017, she started having seizures which left her on the floor stiff and shaking. Over the next 3 days, those seizures increase in duration from once every 4-6 hours to every hour. On June 16, 2017, we picked her up from the emergency vet where she stayed the night and took her to Ridgeview Animal Hospital where she was put to rest.
