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...

Tiffany A
Tiffany A was rescued from an outdoor location where her former owners had moved out and left her behind! She was a very loving cat who liked nothing better than to sit in a lap and cuddle and purr for your affection. We had Tiffany updated on vaccines and confirmed prior spay surgery. Unfortunately, she also tested positive for FIV (feline aids). But this would not deter us from finding her a home - it just meant she needed a special home. Also, she was estimated to be approx 8 years old. While in foster care, her foster family noticed that she had an ongoing drooling problem and issues eating that seemed to increase despite being inside and cared for (rather than improve as we would expect). We took her back to the vet to investigate the cause and she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in the back of her mouth. This type of tumor can be treated - but the prognosis is not good for her to have a good quality of life. In addition, her age was re-assessed at 14+ years (rahter than 8 as first estimated). Radical surgery on a cat this age with FIV is not advised. Based on these considerations, we decided to euthanize Tiffany rather than prolong a bad health condition that would only lead to more suffering. We are sad at having to make this decision. It is never an easy one. But, we are happy that Tiffany's final few months were in a loving and caring environment instead of out on the street where death would have been painful and slow. *************** My name is Tiffany. I was found outside by a loving human with no home to call my own. My

Tinsel was a feisty little kitten that was rescued as a newborn, with her umbilical cord still atttached. She was named Tinsel for the holiday season and we always felt she added a little sparkle to our lives. Although half the size of her brothers (Mr. Grinch and Mr. Claus), she loved to get in the middle of all the fun.

Tinsel passed this morning (12/15/2010) after a prolonged battle with ongoing diarrhea that she suffered nearly all her life. She was recently diagnosed with an irritable/inflamed bowel condition which has resulted in nutrient malabsorption and has been worsening as she developed in size. Despite excellent veterinary care and loving support from her foster home, Tinsel was not able to overcome this condition. She died in the arms of her foster mom.

Tiny Tim was a rescue off of the streets, however when he came to us he was anemic and refused to eat. We did everything we could to help him, but it wasn't enough. He passed two days after being in our care. We know that he was comfortable and warm and not left alone outside.

Tom Thumb
Tom Thumb, or "Tom" as we called him, was dropped off at animal control without a mother. He was taken in by a nursing mother cat that we had in our foster home. Although he was a bit younger/smaller than the other kittens in his foster litter, Tom did just fine. He rarely had any trouble keeping up with the bigger kittens and he joined in all the play and nap times.

Sadly, Tom caught an upper respiratory infection (URI) and was too tiny to fight it off despite our best efforts to save him. He died in his sleep in the middle of the night, May 21, 2009. We miss his tiny footsteps.

Toothless was a young kitten rescued from the streets by a homeless man. He grew up to be a wonderful cat, so affectionate and playful. Unfortunately, he never accepted being an inside only cat. He was killed by a car on a quiet neighborhood street on May 6, 2012. It was instantaneous and he never knew what happened. Now he is in cat heaven and he watches over us every day.
