Remembering Sweet Lexi
Hey all you tabby luvvers, Dezi here. We're here today to celebrate those sweet tabbies who are no longer with us. They're not the only ones being 'membered today, but we were fortunate enuff to have the very bestest tabby the world ever knew. Now, me knows you feel the same way 'bout your beluvved tabby, and that's okay. Truth is, the tabby cat, which is a color pattern and not a breed at all; is known fur bein' one of the bestest natured kitties on the planet. Me believes me's sweet sisfur Lexi was the bestest of all. She was never even s'posed to be mommy's kitty. That's right, sweet Lexi was one of the biggest foster failures ever. 'Course, mommy should'a known that was gonna happen the minute she saw that tiny little striped kitty layin' there in that shoe box clingin' to life. Mommy fell hard and fast and didn't even know it till it was too late.
Sis Lexi and her littermates minutes old.
By the time somepawdy wanted to adopt sissy, mommy decided no home but hers was actually good enuff to house the little Empress. It wasn't 'bout money, cuz mommy didn't have any. It was all 'bout luv and devotion. Sis Lexi luvved mommy as much as mommy luvved her. And talk 'bout devotion...those two finished each other's eveythin'. Mommy honestly never 'magined a day without sissy. Sis Lexi and mommy had known loss. They lost sis Lexi's brofurs, 3 times over, but never considered a day they'd have to say goodbye. Me joined mommy and Lexi when sissy was 10 years old. Even at 10, sis Lexi was still young at heart. and let me tell ya' kittens, she sure 'nuff put me in me's place and let me know who was the boss. Even so, she was gentle 'bout it, and grew to luv me as much as she luvved mommy.
She taught me so much 'bout luv and helpin' our mommy. She was the bestest Service kitty ever. And, the bestest sisfur ever. She was by mommy's side fur 17 years. Thru good times and bad times she never failed to make mommy smile. Till the day she could no longer fight to stay. Mommy and me were devastated. We still don't understand why God needed sis Lexi in heaven. Or why, He thought He needed her more than us. But, she's gone now, and all we have are the memories and the luv she left us with.

Some days are easier than others, but we think 'bout her every day. Each night when we say our purrayers, mommy's always sure to ask God to give sissy an extra hug and kiss from us. Tabbies.........God's marvelous little treasures. Some day another may grace our doorstep, but there'll fur sure never be, another like sweet sis Lexi. Good night sissy, we luv and miss you terribly. We'll see you again by the river of life, when the Son calls us home.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2017
We remember them every day, but this day is set aside for SPECIAL thoughts every year. We all experience loss in different ways but thinking of our beloved fur-friends in a beautiful place called The Rainbow Bridge helps us think of them "starting over" - no illness, no old age, no sadness.

Our love for those who are gone goes ON AND ON.........and we feel them with us every day until one day when we join them and are all together again.
You all may know that Teddy's brother Angel Sammy has a Poetic Thursday post he does from the Rainbow Bridge every week - this was his poem a week ago called "Imagine" that we'd like to share with you..........
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 8/9/17
Imagine a place where peace abounds
Endless flowers adorn beautiful grounds
Endless blue in the sky up above
Never a bad thought, just boundless LOVE
Imagine a cloud so soft and secure
A bed for an angel, with dreams that are pure
Imagine being healthy, and young, and revived
You just left one existence but your “self” survived
Your wings lift you up and you fly with such ease
You may visit your family and friends if you please
We have gone from your touch, but we’re with you still
One day we will see you as you come up the hill
Arrive at the Bridge and we run to your side
The love we have held like a rushing tide
We welcome you home – we’re together at last
A reunion so sweet, like mere seconds have passed……….
Thank you for joining in the Tabby Cat Club's special Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Please take the badge below to display on your blog if you like!

Hi Tabby Friends. We want to remember our dear Angels who we miss dearly.
Our Angels visit in our dreams and tell us about the happenings over the Bridge and also let us know about our friends are there with them.
It sure is comforting to know they are watching over us Miss Fitz
It sure is Timmy
|Amber was Dad's mothers kitty. Dad adopted her after mom passed and kept her safe inside in her twilight year.|
She never saw clothes she didn't need to add her fur to!
MOL! She was an expert at that fur-sure
|Of course what he really loved was Dad! |
Every night he would get on Dads lap and purr like I do now.
Such a cutie for a twenty two pound muscle cat
|Coco was Dad's Mom's kitty. He was a Sphynx and loving as anything. Dad had to insist he keep Coco as, sadly, his sisfur just could not keep him safe after Mom passed.|
Dad loved the way he would run under the covers and cuddle every night.
|He was a real cut up. Here he is playing with Toby!|
He was a funny kitty!
|Goodnight Sweet Prince. Me and Toby kept vigil over him for 3 days. *Sigh* Miss playing with you buddy|
|Here is Inky. He was a thin little cat. Dad called him Big Ink or Bink.|
|Here he is with Mama Pee Girl. He loved her so very much and she him.|
Miss you Buddy. Until we meet again
|Pee took over as Dad's heart kitty after Ming went over the Bridge. |
She was adopted by his fiance. She left and Pee Girl stayed, MOL
|Here she is with Baby Inky. He was from her last litter. She loved being with kitten and when she could no longer have kits she kept him under paw. He was a real Mamas boy.|
Today we are remembering our sweet Angel Tamir. He was a proud Tabby Cat Cub Member and a loved member of our family. Sure miss him a lot.
