Rufus.................

Blossom had some sorrowful news yesterday. Rufus her cousin in England has made the journey across the Rainbow Bridge and back to the dimension of Oneness, to be once again with his lifelong companion Rumpleteaser. Bless his heart, it was all a bit sudden the loss of this elderly feline prince. Life is so precious, we all take for granted the presence of those we cherish, and yet sometimes without any warning, poof, they are taken from us in a flash, leaving us mourning the magic of their companionship. I do not believe in death, not in the sense that the body is all we are, I believe that the body houses the soul, the real us, and when we are required to return to our true home, we shed our body and rise to return to the blissful abode that awaits us. I know that this belief does not stop the grieving of our loved ones, on the contrary, I feel it intensifies the loss, as I know that those that I love, be they animal or human, are still with me watching, loving, waiting; yet out of my reach, I can no longer see them, touch them or speak with them, in the physical sense in any case, not until I too make the journey that will transform me once again into the mists of heaven. As I mourn the passing of this blessed being I send loving thoughts and embraces across the seas to his two mothers, who will be missing the warmth and love of beautiful Rufus..............

I have visited several blogs this week mourning pets. I feel like our old dear pets are somehow calling out to us. Strange.

How very sad. I feel the same way you do, and while I know I will see my babies again someday, it really doesn't help me miss them any less. I will send a prayer that they make Rufus welcome at the Bridge.
