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
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.


Mamma Cat
Mamma Cat was a feral kitty who lived at the pallet yard when it was purchased by a crazy cat man in 2003. At that time she had 5 wee kittens. Only 2 survived. We TNR'd Mamma and the kittens. One grown kitten (Houdini) disappeared many years ago. But Mamma Cat and her female kitten (Tiger) continued to live at the pallet yard for many years. In the past few years, Mamma Cat began to slow down quite a bit. She became hard of hearing. Everyone was extra careful with the machinery to make sure Mamma Cat was safe. Then one night in late July 2014, Mamma Cat knew the end was near. She went to her special hiding place and lay down to sleep for the last time. Everyone misses Mamma Cat. But we are happy in knowing that she had a very good life and was greatly loved.


Mango
Mango was abandoned at the Loop Petco on 7/26/2007. She was left in carrier in a shopping cart in the grooming hallway with a note reading "last cats at dump" attached to the carrier.

This young cat was extremely scared of people. We had her spayed and released her to our colony in Taft. She was very happy and eventually learned to trust her caretakers. She loved to get petted and loved on by people she knew but did not trust strangers.

Unfortunately, we must report that Mango was cruelly gunned down on June 1, 2011 in the yard where she lived so peacefully.


Manny
Manny passed away September 4, 2008 at the tender age of 5 months. He was pretty sick most of his life. It turned out that he had an enlarged heart on one side and the other side was puny, with valves that weren't formed correctly. Manny was always a good sport despite his ill health - he always tried to be a good baby and take his medicine without a fuss. His family was devastated by losing him - he was their baby boy.


Marley
Marley was rescued from OCAS because this local county shelter did not have the resources to provide the advanced surgery he needed to be healthy and ready for adoption. You see, Marley had been diagnosed with a severe diaphramatic hernia which was determined to be particularly tricky to repair. This young cat fit right into the foster home and was showered with love by his foster parents. Then the day came for surgery. There was no way to avoid it. And, unfortunately, Marley did not survive. We miss him terribly and wish there had been some other way ... but we are also glad we were able to give him a chance and that his last days were spent surrounded with love. RIP Marley. Gone but not forgotten : -(
