    I had to let Catnip go to Rainbow Bridge this afternoon.
    I came home from work and found her near death. Rather than let her suffer any longer I got her to the vet.
    The thyroid problem was masking end stage renal failure. She was so dehydrated it was hard for him to get the needle into her - that was bad.
    She was only 13 years old. Sadly only got to know love and care the last year of her life.
    She was placed in a vet's office at 7 years of age to be PTS for not liking her family's new dog. Vet contacted Siamese REscue and she was fostered in Virginia for nearly a year and then adopted by a guy in NH who kept her 3 years with no medical care whatsoever!!!! He ended up giving her back and that's how I got her. I fostered her nearly a year and she got adopted. They kept her 6 months and sent her back.
    In the times I fostered her she was happy and content, so the 2nd stay we adopted her.
    She loved her PawPaw and there is a definite hole here tonight.

    I'm Still Here

    Friend, please don't mourn for me
    I'm still here, though you don't see.
    I'm right by your side each night and day
    and within your heart I long to stay.

    My body is gone but I'm always near.
    I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
    My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
    as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

    I'll never wander out of your sight-
    I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
    I'll never be beyond your reach-
    I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

    I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
    and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
    I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
    The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

    I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
    The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
    I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
    and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

    When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
    you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
    I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
    and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

    I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
    and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
    I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
    Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!
