'My Handsome Boy'

I lost my cat Jake to illness on April 13 2010. My heart is broken and the pain inside is so intense at times. I had Jake since he was a kitten. There is nothing like the love of a pet. He was my walking diary. 18 wonderful years.

The other night I was up in bed where he always was and I could have sworn that he was lying on the pillow right above my head, again where he always was. I spoke his name and all of a sudden I felt this rush of ease come over me.. that he was alright. That I had made the right decision to have him put down because he was so sick. I can say only now that I did make the right decision only because I can feel the relief inside that he came to me to let me know he was ok and feeling much better.

See he was sick for a very long time and I did all I could to help.. vet visit after vet visit. Only when I felt inside the best thing was to let him go and not be selfish and keep him because I couldn't bare to live without him.. so in closing yes I believe in the Rainbow Bridge and I know he will be there waiting for me when it's my turn..

I love you Jake and miss you every day/night.
You will never leave my heart.

Funny how sometimes you know that you're doing the right thing but it feels so terribly wrong. My kitty was put to sleep after years of heath issues and I know how painful it is to watch them suffer. I'm so sorry for you loss. Faerie
