My heart and prayers to your friend and you ....and for Jack....he is already walking that beautiful bridge to be with all our friends we have lost over the years. I have several kitties in heaven now....since I have had many at one time and they all brought so many loving memories to my heart for ever. My most particular friend was Cocoa Puff...she came to our home when I was 3 yrs old. She didn't have a name yet...she was a dark brown Burmese...I was watching cartoons that day when a commercial that I particularly loved came on...the Cocoa Puff cereal commercial with the stupid chicken screaming yahoo cocoa puffs, lol. I was running around yelling it and my new family member came up to me and rubbed my leg. Henceforth....her name was Cocoa Puff!!! I was a very lonely child even though I had a rather large family. Our home was very disfunctional and I was born legally deaf but could still hear a tiny bit. I learned to talk pretty well, but that was never good enough for others ....even adults made fun of me and asked me where are you from...you talk weird. When I explained...they would imitate me out of meanness. So, with that said....I found my life to be rather solitary. Cocoa new something was wrong with me since I was always playing by myself and my family were all together with friends. She became my best friend...she allowed me to play with her, dress her up, we played "house" everyday....she was so tolerant of me. I pushed her around in a doll buggy, put her in a high chair to eat, she even had a bassinet to sleep in with pj's on. She was just an awesome friend to me. When I ate, she sat next to me...not begging...but just sat there and waited for me to finish..and off we went to play. When it was bathtime...she sat on the top of the sink and waited....bedtime we cuddled side by side. She passed away when I was 14 yrs old on Feb 8, 1982 from a human virus she got from someone. I still have days when I think of her or look at her picture and I just start crying. She will always have half my heart with her. I know that someday...when it is my time....she will be waiting for me so we can continue to play "house" together.....IN LOVING MEMORY TO COCOA PUFF AND TO ALL OF YOUR FELINE FRIENDS THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE.....AMEN.

Your story made me cry. I love animals, and have not ever not had a loving cat in my home. I hope he is well and can live healthy whether he meets the rainbow or not. I know when I lose a kitty I am devastated for mp0nths. My thoughts and prayers will definitely be with this little one and his mommy.

My best friend has two cats, one named Jack, she inherited a few years ago after her grandfather passed away. Whenever she was out of town the two lived with me and my two cats. About three years ago she was overseas for a few weeks when he got sick and I took him into the vet. There we discovered that Jack was born with one under functioning kidney which had failed, but together she and I managed to nurse him back to health and get a few more happy years. Last week Jack got very very sick, and his other kidney failed. If you are of the praying type please send positive messages to the two of them, because Jack meets the rainbow bridge first thing Monday morning.
And my prayers are with all you who need it, too. ~Laura
