This uplifting spiritual book is about love, loyalty, friendship and letting go. 'Cherry' opened new passages into Sevi's heart. God's creatures leave their paw prints firmly planted in our hearts..-Jude

This page is dedicated to beloved pets who passed away.

Our special little 'Angels' have completed their mission and returned home. Their legacy of joy and love are with us always. The circle of life continues. Until we meet again~

RAINBOW BRIDGE

Pet Loss and Grief Support
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated. Author Unknown.
ALICERIP.jpg In Loving Memory of ALICE, who was rescued as a kitten along with her mother Katie and brother Jeffrey in 2003. Zany Alice loved to bunny-kick her big stuffed rat toy. She also loved to watch the street sweeper, running to the window every time it passed, ears flat, body low to the sill in stalking pose, following it with dark eyes as it swish-swish down the block. Alice has given us 10 years of laughs, love & kisses. She will be missed. Joanie Locicero & family.
MOMMY419.jpg MOMMYakaLILONE, 4 1/2 year. She was a mush kitty who loved to be petted, held and cuddled. Adorable, playful and really sweet, just like cotton candy. As I held her in her final moments, I told her that her daughter "Angel" (who was near death a couple of months ago) was now doing good. And her son "Tailess" is doing great. I will miss her terribly. She is at the 'Rainbow Bridge', playing, running, jumping with all of her friends, and loving it. God Bless you my "Li'l One", I will always love you...Linda.

ROCKY224.jpg
Hey Rock, when I saw you coming over the Rainbow Bridge, I could not believe my eyes. I knew you'd eventually get here (as we all do) but not so soon. I had a lot of things wrong with me, as did you, that just didn't present, so here we are. This is a real cool place. It's great to get into our confrontation pose, do our rough housing, clean each other, then nap the way we used to. The sunny front window from which we watched the world go by; the admiration we received from the neighborhood was a real ego boost. It's great to be able to run free here and enjoy the grass and warm sunshine for real. It is sad to see Rita cry for us everyday, but someday we'll all be together again.. I hope she continues helping other cats as she helped us. God Bless her and others like Norm & Jude from Muffin's; Denise & Peter of Ferals in Peril, and Diana & Jill Clemente who devote so much of their time, money and energy to help all the cats who desperately need them. Special thanks to MaryJo Tobin whose LOVE WANTED Adoption Events brought us together. We, and all the others, thank and Bless your for your efforts! Honey & Rocky.
SKOOTER307.jpg SKOOTER 12 yrs old. Skooter was just around 3 months old when he came to us and he was so skittish and scared, he just scooted all over the place, hence his name "SKOOTER". It took a while but Skooter and Pumpkin became the best of friends, but they did.. Skooter loved to be brushed and held and was a big baby. He loved his dry Fancy Feast and his treats. He waited everywhere for me to give him them. At night he would come and sleep on me, if I moved he would get off, wait until I stopped and would lay on me again, he was a big boy. I still miss him, Pumpkin and Tabitha and I guess I always will. It doesn't make a difference how many cats or animals you have, you will always remember them after they pass on, they will always be my loves and in my heart…Linda & Eddie.
wpe3.jpg GLENDA, 10 YEARS OLD. After suffering on the streets for 5 years, you came into my life and slept with me for five more years. We gave new life to each other. You, my precious cat, are sitting on God's lap. Love Gloria McNaughton.
MALCOLM, rescued from ASPCA 16 years ago, was the office mascot kitty to Dr. Kofi's Animal Clinic in Brooklyn. He lived the last seven months of his life with Carol Kelly. He was a remarkable Maine Coon kitty.
MADAME BUTTERFLY, an outdoor kitty, 8-10 years old, had many litters (until we caught her). It took months until we were able to trap her, after her last litter in June of 2008. I still have two of her babies; Frisky, a loving Orange boy and Missy, his sister, a pretty Tabby; she is still very skittish. I love them both. - Linda.
BOOTSIE was so special; she was my Tuxedo Love, loved by everyone. She waited for me everyday to feed her turkey. As she was becoming so close to me, but sadly a car accident took their precious lives. More people knew of Bootsie, because she was out there everyday, waiting for me. All I had to do was call her name, and she came. I still cannot believe that she is not there, it hurts. The fact that they survived this brutal winter, and then this terrible tragedy happened, it is unbelievable. Please say a pray for my angels.” - Linda.
ABBY, 24 YRS OLD, was sent to me 23 yrs ago as a rescue cat with a litter of kittens. She would help feed homeless kittens with no mom's. Her life was saved so she could help save other lives. Her spots on her back made in the shape of a angel, that was true to her. She never suffered as her life ended. I didn't allow her to get that far. She completed her mission. She will be missed. - Emma & Cherie.
EeLIJAH, the beautiful Tessalata Eel, lived in a small bucket, rescued on December 19, 2010, and sadly swam across the Rainbow Bridge May 30, 2011. Derek DeCapua saved him from a horrible demise, being dumped down a sewer. He swam relaxed and comfortable in a ten gallon tank with heat, air, and filtration, which Derek and his wife Cathy set up as a temporary home. He dined on goldfish, silversides, and spearing, he even knew his family, bobbing and weaving excitedly when it was time to eat his favorite foods. Eelijah was entertaining with his fun aquatic antics. He was dearly loved and touched the hearts of his human friends. His legacy of saving lives continues. May he swim in Peace…
Tsar, 4 1/2 yr old the Fluff-R-nutter beloved kitty of Joanna Leaske and his feline companion, Pasha Belle. He waited until Jo came home and quietly passed away in her arms. Tsar is sitting on God's lap. Peace.
On February 7, 2011, DR AKHLAQ TABASSAM suffered a major heart attack. He was the beloved vet from Dr. Sinha's Animal Clinic. He is survived by his wife and three young children. His wife is having their fourth baby in April.
IN LOVING MEMORY: Today, January 21, 2011, it's a very sad day for us. Our beautiful cat, Lucy succumbed to bladder cancer and she was sent back home. We gave her a very happy and fulfilling life for six years and we will miss her so much. We are proud to say though that we will "always love Lucy." Janice and Anthony Foti, Dyker Heights.
MINNIE survived 12 1/2 yrs outdoors. Loved and fed by Elyse Karnes and Noreen. A horrible infection took her, now she sits on God's lap. Minnie's purrs touched many hearts.
LILY our wonderful dog, a beautiful blonde Cocker Spaniel, made our home in Dyker Heights a happy place for 11 ½ years. Lily was a happy dog. It was like having a piece of Heaven on Earth. Kathy & Ralph DiSomma.
Simba 9yrs old, beloved cat of Joyce & Michael Grossman purrs in heaven with Angels and other family members. His legacy of kitty rescue continues as his enormous love ripples into the universe. Peace Sweet Simby.
A donation from Elyse Karnes has been sent in loving memory of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Grassi beloved cat. The kitty walks with Jesus and Angels. Peace.

IN LOVING MEMORY:
Karen Bladykas
Rest in Peace 7/16/10


With a heavy heart and many tears I
confirm to you all our biggest fear. Our
hope for a MIRACLE didn’t come,
To her illness Karen did succumb.
We won’t hear her voice, so filled with love,
But now she’ll love us from way above.
To say we’ve lost a fellow animal lover
and friend,
Is to painfully acknowledge her life‘s
come to an end.
To say these words out loud are painful
to me,
For I know her face I will never again
see.
Oh how I wish I hadn’t erased her last
voicemail to me,
But who could have known the last it
would be.
We can’t say goodbye to her because
she’s already passed,
But we can keep her alive by making
her memory last.
When you see a stray that's down and out,
Remember what Karen was all about.
Helping an unfortunate creature in need,
Is like allowing Karen to take the lead.
Forever I will remember the sound of her voice,
We know that leaving this earth
wouldn’t have been her choice.
As a reward for losing the battle she so
bravely fought,
It comforts me now to think this thought.
On Rainbow Bridge she is happily seated,
No longer sad or feeling defeated.
Free of pain and worldly worries,
She’ll spend eternity with her long lost
buddies!
I will miss you my very dear friend!
Love Ya, Mary Jo Tobin
