Till We Meet Again....


1991-1992 (?) - Nov. 19, 2007

Alone and sad
Always thinking of you
Alone and sad
and terribly blue.

"But I am here," you say
With a twitch of your tail
"I am here" you say
Not sick and frail.

In memories cherished
Never to die
In memories cherished
Please, don't cry.

I have a place
Deep in your heart
I have that place
We are never apart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Daisy's Mom, Sue, helped her to the bridge today. Daisy's Mom and I have been good internet email friends for years. Sue lives in Loughton, which is outside of London, England. Daisy came to live with her Mom Sue and Dad Stephen, 4 1/2 years ago, at the age of (about) eleven. She was an honorary Calico Girl and teleported over to our kitty napathon in January, 2006. She had a heart of gold, was timid and shy and always such a good girl, touching everyone who knew her.

She reminded me so much of my Mittens. While I never met her, I will really miss her as I feel I knew her, through Sue's many emails.

This is sad news!
We've been emailing her momma talking about guinea pigs for awhile and will send our condolences. Poor Daisy was quite sick and even though some thigns are for the better, it's still terribly hard because a piece of your heart goes with them. ::sniff::

We are so sorry about Daisy. She was a very lucky cat to have such a good family. Another angel watching over us all from the Rainbow Bridge.

What a beautiful tribute to English Daisy.
It is a very sad time for her parents and all who knew her (and even some who only knew her thru the internet). But she is no longer suffering, she is waiting at the Bridge for the rest of us.
Prayers to her Mum and Dad and all of us who knew her.

Your tribute to English Daisy is lovely. I am very sad that she is gone, but she is healthy again and without pain at the Bridge. I am very sad for her family, because it is so hard to let the little furry ones go, even though you know it is best. I send them hugs and condolences.

Sorry to hear about English Daisy. Hugs and purrayers to Sue and her family.

Daisy does look like Patches / Mittens. When I saw the picture my heart died for a second, I thought it was one of the girls.

Dragonheart said...

On a happier note, I've presented all of you with an award! You can pick it up on my blog.
