    I would love to believe in this, I really would. I had to put my boy, my son, my best friend to sleep last week after 16 years of joy and love. Suddenly 50% of my the love in my life has gone, the world is now a darker place now my Barns has left me. I'm not religious at all, never have been. I would love to believe in this... I dunno, maybe I'm scared to. Believing in this would mean coming to terms that Barns has truly gone, something I cannot do at the moment. RIP Barns,

    My dear Sox is there now. I rescued her nine years ago. She passed away January 11, 2017 after a year long anemia.

    I dont see it as religious i believe in the power of love and the eternal spirit

    I dont believe death is the end, just a new start

    maybe im a hippy or new age oldie but your best buddy has, i believe, simply stepped into another dimension...

    Good times havent gone, theyve been put on hold

    Toby, RIP my little man. You were a little cat (well actually quite big in your earlier day) who loved being outside until the last few hours of your life and I hope you can enjoy your time pottering around rainbow bridge. I think we got it just right for you, you'd just started to really struggle with life as we were leaving for the vet - I hope this is the case and you actually had the life you were meant to down to the last hour.

    You were a real lovable character and the house is empty without you. We will look after your little sister and hope one day she reaches you safely. Thank you for sharing your life with us, I hope you were happy. x

    Toby was a tuxedo cat with a white patch by his nostril, four white paws and a little bit of white on what was his cuddly tummy. Everyone loved him and he had a lot of admirers who spoilt him with too many treats over time.

    This is the most beautiful thing I have ever read. I lost my angel very recently and in a strange way this gives me comfort that one day I will see him and cuddle him again.

    So very very sorry for your loss. My old man had a massive stroke and heart attack in my arms. Its a scene I will never forget. I recently tried to foster a feral cat in the hope that it would bring the other 3 around a bit as you can tell that they miss him but it didnt work out as my Maine Coone is now nervy and wont go out!! So busy trying to get rid of the smell if a strange cat! Definately still not right the other 3 you can tell. They do know!!! And it is still strange only feeding 3 cats....thank you for your post. My thoughts are with you and your little cat thats left x

    It's 8 years since Amber crossed the bridge, every year it's been hard but this year for some reason it's really hard, time heals as they say and normally I'm fine but this morning I can't stop crying I miss her so much, it's feel as if we have just lost her all over again it hurts so much. What I'd give just to hug her again.

    Sleep well My Golden Girl.

    The rainbow bridge story made me cry. When Gripper cat went to Rainbow bridge I kept reading poems about cats going to Rainbow bridge and some were written from the cats perspective. This was 2003 and was sitting in the college computer room crying.. I told my mum and she asked me to print them for her. She was crying too. 3 cats in total went to rainbow bridge. Puss and Buttons were the other two and my grandmothers cats Tibby and Jason xx

    Lottie, RIP my beautiful girl. You were the nervous one but turned into the most loving lap cat, you were so trusting and placid. We had many hours together enjoying a lap and purrs. We had a fantastic life with you and you were such good company. Toby went to rainbow bridge the same time exactly 54 weeks ago, go and be with him and look after eachother. One day we will join you both. We had a fantastic life with you.
