My Mokey is about to cross the rainbow bridge

My Mokey is about to cross the rainbow bridge

by Diana
(New Mexico)

Today is August 26th 2010: About 17 years ago, a little Siamese kitten was born and brought into my life. He has dark colored fur and seal points, so I named him Smokey, and called him "Mokey" since that day.

He is a very intelligent boy. He walks on a leash, pees in the potty, and says "hello" and "mama".

When I am sick, he stays with me. When my dad passed away, he let me cry on him. He is a very special part of my life.

I took him to the vet today with a heavy heart, having a feeling about him. The vet confirmed my suspicions. Mokey has lymphoma.

He says there is really no hope, even if I were to have surgery and chemo done. I really don't want him to hurt, and I know this will spread.

He is letting me take Mokey home so that I and my family can say goodbye to him and then I guess next week I will have to have him put down. I have had Mokey even longer than my husband.

Please say prayers. My Mokey will cross the rainbow bridge and will be waiting for me, I know.

HUGGING YOU
by: Anonymous

While looking for images of rainbows, I see this picture of a Siamese--that could have been a picture of my Katy.

What does Siamese have to do with Rainbows---but who can resist taking a peak. While this post is over a year old, and may not even be active any more . . . it's been 8 and 5 years since Katy (16) and Snooper (18) left us. I never pull up into my driveway that I don't expect to be greeted by "mouthy, tattle-tales."

It's been a year for you--and this site brings tears to my eyes just KNOWING, how hard it was for you . . .There's gotta be a heaven for our babies!

Katy was definitely a one woman cat---me, and sometimes was called the "Black-Faced Bitch" LOL. I told the Lord, I don't know what you will do about her personality, but I want THIS cat, mocked up to LION size---
for eternity!

Considered yourself hugged, and understod, near the anniversary of 'Mokey's departure.

im sad
by: kathy

Reading your story brings back sad memeories I have of my sons cat 8-ball who is was with when she passed. She tried to hold on until he came home and she missed him by about 5 or 10 minutes. It was so sad. Shes waiting for him on the other side and he keeps her little bag next to his bed. My beloved Lia is acting his age more and more. I dont think theres any way I am going to p[repare myself for the inevitable. He is so much a part of me. My whole world revolves around him. Its a long story and its been told on this page. He nursed me through several accidents and I will be there for him. Trust me you will see mokey again.

Remembering Mokey
by: Gail (Boston, MA USA)

Diane, I am so very sorry to hear that Mokey has passed. I just read about him this morning at work and cried a river for you in his honor.

Everyone here is feeling your pain - we all, at one time or another, felt the pang of losing one so special. The emptiness of your home and heart are so enormous, but in time, it's true - a smile will cross your lips when remembering the special time you shared together. R.I.P. Mokey - Mommie will see you eventually.

Thank you so much to everyone who left such sweet notes for me and Mokey. My house is very quiet now, but I know he doesn't hurt. I miss him very much.

Broken heart
by: Leah

You will hear many times 'I know how you feel' and those who have truly loved and lost a pet will genuinely know that you feel as though you have lost a huge part of yourself.

Your heart at the moment will feel as though it has been ripped out. I felt this 20 months ago when I lost my darling Benji a persian cross after 17 years also.

I did cry when I read that Mokey had passed in your arms but Ruth is right you are very brave and Mokey knew you loved him.

I also am certain we will meet our beloved pets again one day.

Take care of yourself because one day you will find yourself thinking of Mokey and instead of crying you will smile when you think of all the special times you had togeather.

To Diana
by: Ruth

I am so sad for you and I admire your bravery for holdng Mokey when he most needed you and for letting him go peacefully rather than face pain and distress.
Your home must feel so empty right now and your heart very heavy.
Mokey is at peace but you are suffering.
You will never get over losing him but with time you will get used to him not being around.
Over 36 years of cats I have lived through this quite a few times and I can honestly say I do know how you feel.
Take care x
R.I.P dear Mokey

Mokey
by: Diana

Well, today is a sad day for me. At about 9:10 this morning, Mokey passed away. I'm a firm believer in the thought that your pet will not leave you until you tell them that you will be okay. I've seen it happen three times now.

I was holding Mokey this morning, telling him how much I loved him, and that it was okay for him to go, and that I would find him someday. I kissed him and cried on him and felt him pass there in my arms. I am grateful that I had him for so many wonderful years and that we were together when his time came. I have a box for him, he'll be buried in my flowerbed and I am putting a rose, some new fuzzy mice toys (he loved them), and a blanket in his box to take with him. I'll never forget him.

Moved
by: Michaell

Diana, your story moved me to tears. I wanted to write a prayer. I wrote this. It is not good but it is heartfelt.

May Mokey's last days be fine and cheerful
While we pray for a safe journey towards that glorious rainbow
Diana need not be fearful
Because she will see Mokey again, one day, I know.

Take care, Diana, and thanks for sharing.

Michael
