Farewell Friends Friday-Updated


Farewell all of our friends who have gone to the Bridge in the last while. My OTW took this from our balcony a few days ago. My OTW wanted to write something for all the friends who have passed on, but after a few she ran out of words, so she thought she would just ask me to post this. If you look closely, there's a second rainbow over to the left of the first one.

Smeagol and Strider, Mystery (Sunnin' at the Bridge) and Gizmo too! said...

That's such a beauiful tribute and picture, Jack. Thanks for includin' our Aunt Tippy. It makes us and Mom so sad to see how long the list is.

The Norwegian Forest Cat was Ullrick, but we're not sure of the spelling. There was also Digby, his link is on the CB list. The Meezer's Grandpa Norton and Grandma Trixie, too. We can think of some others, but we're not sure how far back you want to go?

The Meezers or Billy said...

oh Jack, that was a beautiful pikshur and beautiful tribute

LZ said...

That is a really special post. The rainbow was quite amazing and to bring that whole list together reminds us of our great friends who are at the Rainbow Bridge.


Victor Tabbycat said...

So many furiends playin an watchin ofur all of us from the Rainbow Bridge. Lovely pictor. Pets have short lives, but long shadows as we remember them. Mom remembers Bigotes, who died 20 years ago this summer, and Scruffy, who died eleventeen years ago, and Two Socks the rat, who died threeteen years ago. Time to hug alla yur beans an tell 'em how much you love 'em. I hugged Mom this mornin.

Daisy said...

That is a very beautiful picture. I did not realize the list has grown so long. We cry at the passing of each of our friends.

Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

That list is so long, and a lot of them so recent....oh, oh, moms leeking again. That piksher is beyootiful.

Mr. Hendrix said...

Ivan from WMD said...

A beautiful picture and a kind and thoughtful post. It makes us sad to read how many friends have left us. Thank you for remembering my brother.

Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

Mom showed dis updated list to dad and he sed dat is way to many! He thinks our blogging frends are da kindest group in da werld cuz we feel each loss, unlike his group who announce a passing and move right on wifout so much as a "gee dats to bad". Sometimes dey don't even know about it until someone asks where dat person is!

Karen said...

Shaggy and Scout said...

Wow...there must be a big party going on at the bridge!
Thank you for including our buddy Tiger and the guinea pigs too!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

The Meezers or Billy said...

Anonymous said...

What a lovely picture! We're very sad that the list is so long, and one of our friends is on your list and we didn't even know of her passing (the lovely Chloe). If you'd like, you could add our friend Milo. We posted about her a while back. She belonged to our neighbor, but had a petting/treats/friendship with our Lady for many years.

Jake and Bathsheba said...

What a wonderful tribute! Such a great photo to honor those we have lost. You're so thoughtful and kind.


Karen said...

Artsy Catsy said...

Oh, thank you for such a beautiful post! It's so comforting to know that all our bridge friends are so nearby and watching over us.

Everybody at Artsy Catsy

Blueberry said...

Thank you for remembering Duncan, and all the others too.

INAMINI said...

Jack, my Mom's eyes are leaking- she is so touched that you included Kitten. She misses him so much! It's so sad to see so many passings...

momsbusy said...

it is sad to know so many have left us but at least we can feel secure knowing that they are free from pain and waiting for us at the bridge. what a nice tribute to all who have gone on to the bridge. love the couble rainbow picture.

Max said...

Oh. That picture is so nice. And that list is so long. I miss so many of my kitty friends...

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Awwww, that is so very sweet of you, da rainbow is so purrfect for them.

Secretly, I'd like to add my big sis angel kitty, but she went to the Bridge over 1.5 yrs not really the last little while. ;)

You are so wonderful, Jack, for thinking of them.


Christine and FAZ said...

what a lovely tribute.


p.s. Jack, I may well take you up on your offer to sort out Hefty Tabby - he trapped me inside all day yesterday (I couldn't get outside to 'you know what'). FAZ

Anonymous said...

If you are still adding names, could you please add my sister, Rita who went to the bridge last December?

Tiki, Kirby, and StanLee said...

Would you please add Vincent to the list? He was the kitty who came before us. Mommy was having trouble dealing with him being gone and found the Cat Blogosphere. People she knows in the outside world don't really understand. It has helped so much to be able to talk to other beans and furry people who do understand because they feel the same way.

Thank you for the list, now we know who Critter is frolicking with...

The feline denizens of the House of Chaos

Rosemary B❤️ said...

Beautiful and touching. Eppy (of Eponine's Cowboy) is also at the Rainbow Bridge. I think it was about 2 years ago because Eppy went to the bridge shortly after I started blogging.

This is a beautiful photo and Farewell Friends post!!

We are so thankful that you added Ralph's name. Now we know for sure he is with friends -- he was not a cat to be alone, he needed purring friends and he had so much to give...

Thank You, Jack!

Anonymous said...

Could you please add these two? Not blogging kitties, but missed nonethless.... our beautiful neighbor girl, Tula, and KJ, the Maine Coon kitten that we didn't get to know. My husband returned him to his people after he was hit by somebody's car and went to the bridge.

Colleen, momma to Charlemagne and Tamar

The Cat Realm said...

This list is way too long. But thank you so much for doing it, it is very very wonderful to have such a great tribute to all our loved ones who are gone. We didn't even know you had this list - we will come back once in a while to remember each and every one. We know how much they are all missed because we miss our Anastasia soooo much still.....

Boots, Ozzie and Brenda said...

I found the Milo on Catster, here is his link:

Hope this helps. Beautiful tribute to the kitties who have left us.
