Good Bye My Little RT RIP

Sunday, September 01, 2013

This morning, we had to put our beloved little RT(Roof Top) to sleep. She lived a long life in our loving home. We rescued her from cruelty and abuse, she escaped to the top of a neighbor's roof, where she lived on moths, and drank the condensation off of the air conditioning unit. I prayed that I would be able to get her down, and finally she came to my arms, and into our hearts. She gained weight and learned to trust again. She loved to play with her favorite little ducky filled with cat nip, she loved to be brushed, and she loved lap time. When my husband held her, and brushed her she would move her front legs back and forth, we said it looked like she was tredding water-as if she was swimming!
I believe that God has a special place in heaven for our pets, I hope I don't offend anyone by saying that.
She will be missed.
I did not use her death as an excuse to over eat today. I am thankful that I am learning to control my emotional eating. I did however stay out of the house as long as possible. It's been a rough week, a rough month. I want to thank each of you who have prayed for me, thought about me, written encouraging notes, posts, mail. You have inspired me, and somehow it's working, I'm thinking I am not alone. It really means a lot. Thank you from the depths of my heart.

    Sorry for your loss of RT. I have 8 cats and lost one last year and one this year. They are part of the family as close as some humans. The foot motion we call, "making biscuits." I believe we will all be re-joined in heaven. They are too precious and innocent not to be provided a perfect place.

    RT sounds like she was a very lucky kitty to have been rescued by you. She knew she was lucky and repaid you with the happiness she gave you. The paws treading water you describe, we call "happy feet". Our guys do that too, when they're happy and content.

So sorry for your loss. She was a beauty.

    I know your precious RT is at the Rainbow Bridge with all of our other furbabies that have gone on. Our pets are our family and I, personally, grieve as I would for a friend or family. I certainly understand what you are going through. emoticon

    Losing one of our furry friends is really losing one of the family. I strongly believe we will meet them again.

    My sweet, sweet friend~I am SO SO sorry that you have lost your baby. She was a very beautiful girl. emoticon I sure do understand how you feel, as I lost my Teeny Marie just 4 months & 3 days ago. Her loss is still very fresh in my heart & mind. Like others have said, I also believe that all of us will be together again with our beloved babies who went to be with Jesus before us.

If you ever want to talk, vent, cry~~~I'm here for you. Write to me anytime.

    Your blog brought tears to my eyes....RT's picture is beautiful and the love and better life you gave RT is a precious gift that RT will keep forever...I believe even animals have souls and they do go to heaven as will see RT again in my heart I know this.... Read the book Heaven is for talks about the animals and Jesus has a rainbow horse....anything is possible by the power of our Heavenly Father.

GOD bless you and know your body is the temple for the Holy Spirit to reside...GOD will help you on your journey to improve HIS temple. :) Keep taking those steps of faith.

    Your cat is beautiful. I am so sorry that she has passed on. It is good that you were able to rescue her and give her a good, happy life. I know how you feel. We lost our cat after 13 years last year. She was so precious to us. We also rescued our Chelsea and she brought such joy to our family.
Take care of yourself and stay on track in memory of your lovely RT. emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry for your loss. Here is my copy of The Rainbow Bridge when I've lost some very dear pets. I hope it gives you a measure of comfort.
Just this side of heaven is a place called 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. 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....

    I know this might sound sort of foolish, but you can keep yourself together diet and exercise wise in honor of your cat. You know, your cat wouldn't like you to put on weight, any more than you would like it. So for the cat, you can be good to yourself. Glenn

  sorry you have lost your cat. she will be waiting for you. i firmly believe Heaven will only be Heaven if all of our family is there, and that includes our cats and dogs. I'm not sure about the goldfish.

Have you ever read the piece called The Rainbow Bridge? it is very comforting for
those of us who have lost pets I have a copy around somewhere but not sure where
maybe another member has a copy that you could read.

I am sure you will see your pretty cat again.
