Ceremony For Trixie

At 6:00 PM PST, please join us in remembering Trixie. Light a candle in your home, gather your kitties around you, and look up to the heavens. Kitties, please bow your heads and softly purr, helping Trixie to the light.

Trixie was so loved by her Momma, Daddy, Miles and Sammy. She is now at home with her brothers at the Rainbow Bridge.

    May the road rise to meet your paws.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your fur.
    And rains fall soft upon your catnip fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

    Pandora lefted a note that says, "Charlie, Mama, Daddy and I are all very sad that Trixie has gone to the Bridge. She was a very sweet cat. I remember her at my birthday party, sitting chatting with Mittens, sipping on her russianless white russian. Such a lovely time she had there with her bestest friend, watching the lads muck around on the trampoline and in the pool........ Look after her, Norton and Ralphie!"

    Magoo, I know you want to celebrate all that Trixie was and remember all the good things, but some of us need to mourn first.

    I for one, from my Cube of Deep Thoughts, want to say that Trixie is a treasure that none of us will ever forget. Thanks to the internet, we can come together to give comfort to beans who do not understand that we are already part of the greater good. Trixie made a ripple in great pond of the world. We see that ripple in the fact that all of us are here now to remember her. What effect her ripple will have, we do not know. But it brought us here. Tonight. And with that, she has has shown us the light of angels.

    Edselsmom - you are so right. I knew the minute I picked up Norton and Trixe and Ralphie (and Sammy and Miles too) that my heart would break when they ran off to the Bridge, but never ever would I trade one second that I had with them for any less pain. - Meezers Mom

    The Dance by Garth Brooks

    Looking back on the memory of
    The dance we shared beneath the stars above
    For a moment all the world was right
    How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye
    And now I'm glad I didn't know
    The way it all would end the way it all would go
    Our lives are better left to chance
    I could have missed the pain
    But I'd of had to miss the dance
    Holding you I held everything
    For a moment wasn't I the king
    But if I'd only known how the king would fall
    Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all
    And now I'm glad I didn't know
    The way it all would end the way it all would go
    Our lives are better left to chance
    I could have missed the pain
    But I'd of had to miss the dance
    Yes my life is better left to chance
    I could have missed the pain
    But I'd of had to miss the dance.

We knew they didn't need more toys or treats, but hopefully those blankets were soft and warm and comforting. Now, they will hold the scents of Trixie and Norton for awhile longer. While those scents will fade, your memories will remain clear.

    Fragile Circle

    "We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own,
    live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
    Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
    We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
    never fully understanding the necessary plan." -- Irving Townsend

    When Pretty went to the Rainbow Bridge Mommy cried a lot too. Even though she knew Pretty was better it was so sad for her. After that she thought about how hard it was going to be when the other poodins went to the bridge too. But when we snuggle her and purr and love her she says the heart pains are worth it.

    KC and I found this poem the night before Trixie died. We had read her last post about how sick she was, and how tired, and her poor old body was failing her. It seemed so appropriate for her.

    Rest well, little dancer.


    God looked around his garden and found an empty place.
    He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
    He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
    God's garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
    He knew that you were suffering; he knew you were in pain.
    He knew that you would not get well on this earth again.
    He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb.
    So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine".
    It breaks my heart to lose you, but you haven't gone alone.
    For part of me went with you, the day God called you home.

    Maybe we should dance like mum danced as a little girl. They played lots of music and all danced around. You didn't have to have a real partner. Sort of a "hulabaloo".

    'membering Trixie. Mom & I danced in her honor today.

    Mommy has speshul songs for each of us. Ralphie's song was the Sweet Pea song (oh sweet pea, come on and dance with me) and Norton's song was I will always love you. - Miles
  • Blogger Victor Tabbycat posted at 6:56 PM  
    And lots more Temptations! Hee, hee. You're right, Derby.

    Then there was a song for Scruffy cat... Mom can't remember the name, but it went, "If you want somebody to love you, You're gonna need somebody to love you, You better find somebody to love you..." Scruffy could never get enough attention.

  • Blogger Bonnie Underfoot posted at 7:05 PM  
    Anyone who's interested can order the CD from We started at the purrformer's page. If you like the classic Irish songs, and especially if you're an Irish Rovers fan, you'll like it.
    Cuz I said so.
