Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day..... 

Today we celebrate those pets and companions that we have lost. The day was begun by Deb Barnes, of the Zee and Zoeys Cat Chronicles after the loss of her beloved companion Mr Jazz, as a tribute and as a way to never forget.....

I don't think anyone in the Blogging world, or in deed anyone with companions of their own, will have been without loss at some point in their lives.

But there seem to have been so many friends pass this year, and hardly a week has passed without tears in our home from more sad news.

But today is the day we remember and celebrate the joy and friendship of our friends and companions that have since crossed that Rainbow Bridge, to a place where they run carefree and well once more. A place where they can wait and welcome us when we too travel across our own bridge.

To all my friends who have lost this year, and in years past, I offer out my hand and heart and friendship so we can carry on, for that we surely must to honour and celebrate those we love and lose....
.... but this is not the end, just the beginning of a whole new adventure, a new walk in the woods or by a beach, or a new sun puddle to sleep in or nip mouse to chase.

So till we meet again, dear friends, I salute you, and give thanks for all the love and the good times we shared...

Gentle purrs to you all



  1. Today is indeed a special day, but dang, reading all of the special posts sure makes my heart hurt.

  2. So true. The Rainbow Bridge is a fantastic place where our fur angels are once again young and pain free.

  3. Oh, there is so much loss, butts so much love too. Our furiends never really leave us, butts it is still so hard to be without them. Lots of {{hugs}} and loves and AireZens for all of Blogville remembering our furiends that went over the Bridge.

  9. Thanks for your wonderful words -- Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is very special. And I was so very happy that I, Marvelous, could write about my special Rainbow furrend, who found me my new Mommy!

  10. This is a beautiful tribute to those that have left us, Erin.

  11. Beautiful post, ERin. We remember Caly and Xena too <3 Hugs to your Peep!

  12. What a lovely post for all of us.

    I can't post as it is too close to losing Dash and my heart is never in it.

  13. Purrfectly stated, sending (((hugs))) as everyone remembers catchatwithcarenandcody

  14. Well said, Your Majesty. Our hearts are heavy, and yet joyful that our fur babies OTRB were a part of our lives.

  15. Aww ... MAN! I thought I comment on this post on Tuesday - but it apparently didn't take. Beautiful tribute for the day. And we remember Xena and Caly too.

  16. Princess Erin, very well articulated and a lovely tribute to all those who have lost their fur babies. It hurts so much just thinking about them but we smile when we know that they're enjoying the best sun puddles and highest quality grade nip ever over at the rainbow bridge.
    But the beautiful part is we still have place in our hearts to welcome more furbabies and we do it all over again.
