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...

Hadley (originally known as Korea) was adoptied in 2005. Her family cherished her. Unfortunately she had a dormant case of feline leukemia which recently became active and devastated her little body. Her family did not want her to suffer, so they gave her the ultimate gift by letting her go peacefully into eternal sleep. Her family was with her to the end giving her hugs and kisses. Her sister cats, Landon and Jagger, miss her very much and so do her people - Lindsay Poveromo & Aaron Joly

Helenee, or "NeeNee" as we called her, had enough cattitude for a whole housefull of cats. We miss her more than words can express. Love you NeeNee. Enjoy your time in cat heaven until we meet again.

Houdini was a sweet baby cat who was rescued from a hoarding situation ... one of 3 kittens in a litter born in squalid conditions. Two of the kittens suffered respiratory infections and one of them passed. Little Houdini was recovering from the URI but was having difficulties due to a hugely swollen tummy. The vet diagnosed "megacolon" which is unusual in very young kittens and the long-term outlook was not good. A decision was made to euthanize rather than subject him to a lifetime of suffering.

Houdini got his name because he managed to escape from the kitten crate several times (motherless kittens are kept in crates to protect them due to their extremely small size and delicate nature). His foster mom takes comfort in thinking that Houdini's last trick was to disappear to a much better place ... across the rainbow bridge where he will be free from pain, in perfect health, running free with the other baby kittens we have lost.

Fostering is a very hard job, especially the little ones. We become attached so quickly and yet they are the hardest to keep alive. We encourage everyone to spay and neuter their cats, escpecially homeless cats they may feed, in order to eliminate (or at least reduce) the number of tiny kittens that come into rescue. While we love kittens, we hate to see them suffer.

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.
