    RIP Bartie

    I remember the day is if it was yesterday. I got a call that a man lost his job, his home and his medical benefits and could no longer care for his 15 year old cat he had had since he was a kitten. I took Bartie in as I believe all oldies but goodies deserve to live out the remaining golden years in a loving home. Bartie gave me the most wonderful 2 and a half years of his life. I will miss his demands for his beloved goats milk. I look forward to seeing you in my dreams my dear old man. Be happy, be whole and give my love to all my other kitties including Casey, MooShoo, Molly rose and Murphy. I will see you again one fine day.

    The body may die, but the love never does. It binds us to them forever and leads to one joyful reunion! RIP Bartie.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Bless you, Donna.

    Peace, Bartie - thanks for giving your mom that little goodbye kiss and meow.

    I hope Nancy comes to realize that keeping an animal alive does not mean keeping them comfortable. You did the right thing, Donna - and there are other furbabies that could benefit from Nancy's support.

    Rest in peace, Bartie, dear. You were loved your whole life, and we are glad your last years were spent with Donna, who has a particularly soft spot for the oldies. We are glad your suffering is over, and death never wins, nor does cancer - love lives on!

    Chase some butterflies up there at the Rainbow Bridge, and then look for Lucas - he's a extra-furry black guy who has been up there a while, but probably knows all the best sunny spots for naps, okay?

    Donna, I am sorry that Bartie is no longer with you.
    I am so glad you got to spend the last few years with him, and enjoy such quality time with him. You are such a blessing to all of your kitties. I know that Bartie would tell you that, if he could. ((Hugs)) to you, sweet Donna.



    I will miss you forever, my sweet Scooter Bug. You were my best friend. 9/21/1995 - 1/23/2010

    I picked up Bartie's ashes from the vet this morning. I don't have the heart to take them out of the bag. I'm afraid I'll cry.

    He will be buried in Nancy's backyard next to her kitties marked by a beautiful stone with his name and years of birth/death.

    I miss him curling up sleeping next to me on the futon and touching my face with his paw. For a cat who owned me for only 2+ years, I am so lonely for him.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02
    Mollie Rose, you were there for me through good times and in bad, from the beginning.Your passing will leave a hole in my heart.We will be together "One Fine Day". 1994-2009
    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    That was so kind of you to take Bartie in as so many people just want Kittens.
    I love older Cat s as they have so much character and I know that there are not as may places for them.
    Now Bartie is an Awesome Angel and will be waiting for two people to share paradise with you and his Guardian who had to give him up.
    Bartie has his wings of silver and gold and you will all be together once more in love.
    One Fine Day.
