Sunday Selfies and Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.



Since today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, we are sharing some selfies of our Angels.  


Clockwise from top right - Angel Cubby, Angel Clifford, Angel Tamir and Angel Sniffie


Sweet Angels you might not know since they are from before we were blogging.    Clockwise from top right - Angel Baschert,  Angels Fooz and  Angel Buffy, Angel Cory and  Angel Katie.


We know this poem says cats but we think it applies to woofies too.

Poem For Cats
And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.
