Tribute to Junior

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I have had Junior since he was a young kitty, he passed away in my arms this
morning at 18 + years of age.

He had surgery 2 weeks ago today, for a large tumor under his tongue, which
left his tongue very sore and tender, so we had been feeding 4-5 times a day with
a syringe to help him out with the food....he was a huge cat, normally, and he
never fought us or protested, just took the food and his meds and purred his way

Last night about midnight, he called me and I went to see what he wanted...which
was for me to pick him up, he was shivering in spite of having a heated bed, so I
wrapped him in his blankie and sat here at the computer with my feet propped up
on the paper shredder, held him and talked with him for over 2 hours, and finally he
went to sleep. I believe his "c" had spread faster than we knew it could.

He always got up with David and carried on a conversation and while David was having
prayer time and coffee....this morning I went to get him to feed him, and he had blood
on his nose, so I wrapped him up and called the Vet.....we loved on him, told him to
cross the Rainbow Bridge and wait for us.....and he was gone....

I believe, because the Bible says there are animals in Heaven, and because of a dream
I and my daughter had when Blaze, our Arab, passed away, that our beloved pets/furry
family members, just cross over and wait....in the meantime, they are whole and healthy.

I wanted you all to know, if I am not my usual self, this is why. I had Junior and little
Sammie and they were my company and best friends before I had met David, so to say
I am broken-hearted is phrasing it gently.

    I'm so sorry. I'm sure all our beloved fur-babies are waiting for you. After all, could it be paradise without them? *hugs*

    My heart aches for you. I lost my kitty of 15 years on my 50th birthday. Broke my heart. I now have my golden retriever who is battling cancer. My other dog is 12 and starting to slow down. My other cat is having some sight issues. And my birds sing through it all. Animals are family. I believe we will see them in heaven too. Prayers for comfort during this time of loss. emoticon

    Oh baby girl! I so know how you are feeling. There are no words I can say that would make you feel better. I had a rough time with Sammie as you remember. Just be assured that yes he is in heaven & he is no longer in pain & you will see him when you get there. He will be waiting for you. If you need or want to talk, you have my number! Love you bunches!

    Aww. Pets are like family and it is so hard to lose them. I truly believe animals go to heaven as well. Some people may not but I just couldn't imagine a world without animals. Plus, dreams can be telling!
