Real Life Rainbow Bridge Stories'My Georgie Boy'
Recently I lost my beloved cat, George. He had a heart condition from birth and I always knew his time with me would be short. He passed away suddenly but expectedly. I have been left devastated and broken.
In the last few days I have been researching pet loss and how to cope with it. George was not the first pet in my life to have died but it has been the most significant. I started to read about the "Rainbow Bridge". I read some poems and felt comfort in the idea that someday maybe George and I would be reunited.
Then out of nowhere I realized... just hours after his passing I was driving home and saw a rainbow about a kilometer from my house. It is the middle of winter here and I have NEVER seen a rainbow in February! I had never heard of the "Rainbow Bridge" before but when I saw it the other day I thought - "maybe that's George telling me he's ok now and out of pain". And today it hit me like a ton of bricks - "IT WAS GEORGE!".
I have been grieving so hard the last few days and reading this has brought me new hope. I know that every time I see a rainbow it will remind me of him and I WILL see him again.
