The Rainbow Bridge

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes 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. Her bright eyes are intent. Her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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....

Sometimes with breeding, we are forced to accept the bitter agony of death. The joy of the miracle of birth and the joys of having our cats with us every day are not the only emotions that go into our breeding program. We also feel loss, especially when things don't go as planned. This page is dedicated to a very special cat who meant the world to us.

We lost our precious Lilly and her entire litter due to severe complications from a c-section. We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with this wonderful girl, although in our eyes, it was far too short. She will always be remembered as the cat who was so intent on grooming us that she would chew on our hair. Lilly was also such a deep sleeper that she would often roll off the cat trees or where ever she happened to be sleeping. Lilly was truly a joy to have in our home and was an angel in the show rings. The memories of our beloved Lilly will live on in our hearts, she will never be forgotten.
