Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies they go 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...

Magic was adopted from IAATC in 2006. His name was Corry at adoption but his family renamed him Magic. It is with a very heavy heart that they contacted us to let us know that Magic went to the rainbow bridge on October 10th after a very sudden and short battle against squamous cell sarcoma (SCC) which he had gotten in an inoperable location under his tongue. His family wrote to us of their overflowing gratitude for allowing IAATCI to give Magic an amazing life. Magic brought unquantifiable joy to his family, including the 3 human sisters he would ultimately proceed to help raise in the years after his adoption. His family note that they will have to learn to live life without Magic, as he was their first and only “son” and they quite literally didn’t know what life was like without him. Magic was stoic, bold, uncompromising and they loved him exactly like that. It was his house, his bed, and his family, and he made all of that very clear to them. Magic's family will be eternally thankful to IAATC for trusting them with their little boy’s life and, even though it was cut short at only 13 years, he certainly had an adventurous one. He followed them to 8 different houses in 3 different states but ultimately lived out his twilight years in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Lil Nugget
Lil Nugget was a fighter from the very start ... the only surviving kitten in a litter abandoned by their mother. He battled with a severe URI and some related eye issues, but ultimately succumbed to FIP. Our hearts are heavy to have to say goodbye.

BobCat Sweeney
It is with a very heavy heart that I write this tribute to BobCat ... a very special cat who found his forever home in the arms of his foster family. If we could clone Bob's personality, then everyone would love cats and all cats would have homes. A true cat ambassador who never met a person he did not like. He had a distinctive low "bass" meow and that indeed will be sorely missed each time I return home. RIP dear Bob until we meet again.

Houdini Sweeney
Houdini had a rough start in life ... having been caged for many years by misguided persons who thought they were protecting him from a viscious dog. When we got him as a rescue, about 7 years ago, he was afraid of his own shadow. Since his extreme fear made him unsuitable for adoption, we took him into our small outdoor colony where he soon became friends with the other cats. He remained very wary of people until about a year ago. I mark it down to senility ... maybe his second kitten-hood? But he began to open up to his caretakers and to enjoy treats and belly rubs. Today we had to say goodbye to Houdini ... a very difficult thing indeed. We are grateful that we could give him a good life and that this last year he finally got to live his life to the fullest. RIP Houdini. We love you.

Orangey was a beautiful OT male Maine Coon cat, with all the loving personality a family could ever hope to enjoy. That's why it was a mystery to us when this lovely boy was found hanging around in a local neighborhood in 2010. Sadly he was not microchipped, and despite an extensive search of "lost cat" resources, his original owners could not be located. Not to worry. Orangey quickly wormed his way into the heart of a new family and he enjoyed many long years of love and attention. Recently his health was declining and nothing veterinary science could do to help. We will miss you dearly Orangey. RIP.
