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...

Lacy was one of a litter of 4 kittens that were born to a feral momma cat. They were rescued when they were just old enough to be taken away from the mother with the idea to socialize them and find them homes.

Unfortunately, the kittens had so many worms and parasites that not even the best medical attention given was able to save little Lacey.

After Lacey's death, the rescue family's hearts were broken and they wept so for her loss. They decided to keep the rest of the litter if they were to survive. Fortunately, the sisters did survive. The family also decided to adopt another little "companion" brother from It's All About the Cats. Now these 3 provide solace. They keip Lacey alive in her family's hearts and prayers each and every day.

The family has made a memorial to Lacey. They water her flowers every day. And they have placed windchimes at the corner of their house as a forever memory of her short life - beloved little furry Lacey.

Lazuli was a very sweet kitten. Slightly shy, but very people oriented. She liked to be held and petted. Her young life was cut short by suspected panleukopenia (feline distemper). We will miss this sweet little girl.

Lee Crawford
Lee and his wife Marty joined our rescue effort in 2006, serving as a foster home to countless kittens and cats over the years. Lee joined our Board of Directors in 2007 and had been serving as Vice President since 2008.

Lee was an exceptional volunteer. He had a wealth of knowledge and skills which he applied freely to helping our organization run smoothly. He was a joy to watch with his gentle handling of our homeless cats and kittens and he was a calm influence throughout the long hours of our weekly adoption events. Everyone who worked with Lee knows his compassion, generosity of spirit and enthusiasm for living.

It was with great sadness that we learned that Lee died in his sleep on December 16, 2010. His passing is a terrible loss to his family and to our rescue mission.

Lestat was an extremely loving and playful young cat. He would have found a home very quickly if not for his special needs condition (fecal and urinary incontinence due to unknow nerve damage). The foster home had been letting him play in the garden and he loved laying in the grass and chasing small insects. Unfortunately, we decided to euthanize Lestat today [April 28, 2008]. An unkind fate had dealt this poor kitty a terrible hand - after 6 months he had not made any progress toward recovery from whatever caused his incontinence and parasites were beginning to become a significant problem. We let him go so that he would not suffer but it was not an easy thing to do. His spirit will live on in the garden he loved.

Leyla died today, May 26 2008, at about 1:45 pm, just 5 weeks old. My husband Tom called her his little tea cup. There was no sign that she was sick, she was just very tiny for her age. She was fine when we went to sleep, but was dying when we woke up about 6 hours later. I don't know what happened during those 6 hours, and I will always wonder. My daughter Nicole and I held her while she was passing and after she had passed away, until I finally could bring myself to let go and bury her in our back yard, wrapped in the towel she was snuggled in while we were holding her. We had named her after the song "Layla, you got me on my knees".
