Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie


Welcome back to my garden my furriends.  This has been a sad week in the blogosphere and with my family.  We had to say goodbye to our long time friend Beau.

We also received the sad news that my cousin kitty, Little Miss, passed away suddenly after a brief illness.  She was only 10 years old.   She lived with another kitty who is almost twice her age.  It was a shock that Little Miss was the first to cross the Rainbow Bridge.  She was a beautiful little girl.

This got me thinking a lot.  We never know how much time we have.  Some kittens never get to live to adulthood.  Some cats like our guardian angel Jonathan ::bows head in honor:: live to be in their 20's. 

You have to appreciate every day.  Let your dad give your tail a little love pull.

 Flop on the ground in appreciation.
 Make a few air biscuits and expose your belly just because you can.
 Play silly games with your humans.
 And appreciate all the beautiful things in this world.

Thank you to our lovely furriends AFSS for making the lovely remembrance graphic for Little Miss.

Truer words were never spoken. A beautiful tribute to our fallen furriends and a wonderful reminder to take in every single day and all that it has to offer.

You are most welcome for the graphic we are so glad you liked it. You are very wise about none of us knowing how long we will get to stay with our families. We should fill each day with love and laughter because we may not have a tomorrow.

Absolutely, Jonesie! One of my kitties was helped to the Rainbow Bridge at 9 months. My last one lived 20 years before being helped to the Bridge.

Too many kitties lately makes us sad. Purrs and hugs to Little Miss' family.
