My Little Sweetie

by Linn

Little Sweetie found me about nine years ago on a warm spring day. A darling cat with a free and daring spirit. I loved her from the beginning and it seemed like she had nine lives. She never missed a day sitting on my front porch, where she would comfort me when I was sad. I would talk to her and she seemed to understand me more than any human every did.
She never wanted to come inside in nice weather but would cuddle up in my bedroom all winter long.
I felt the last few weeks that something bad would happen to her, I know that it was just a feeling but it was still there. She also seemed to know that her time was short because she would stay by me on my porch longer and longer until I went inside and then she would leave, but would come running up to greet me the second I came back outside.
I left for a few hours yesterday and when I came back she didn't come running up to meet me. I saw her lying on the ground between two trees in the front yard. When I walked over to her and called her name, I knew she was dead. I ask a neighbor if they had seen anything and was told that they saw two dogs grab as she run up a tree.
I cried for hours but knew I had to bury her, but I wanted to hold her forever but had to let her go.
I woke up crying this morning and knew that I would not see her on the porch or every get to touch her again.
When I walked outside this morning, I could feel her little spirit in the wind and I could feel her presence.
I want her back so badly, but I know that can never be, not on this earth anyway. I believe I will see all my little pets again in that beautiful place where they are waiting for me, and once again I will touch their little hearts and they in turn will touch mine.

Feeling sorry for Sweetie
by: Sandy

Dear Linn,
I felt very sad on reading about the demise of your little Sweetie . I was reminded of my pet cat/Kitten Poochie whom I lost 6 months ago .I had her with me only for 4 months and she was only about an year old when she died .Some of your pets qualities matched with my Poochie like staying outside most of the time and staying indoors for a long time during winter , living life on their own terms ,knowing only to love etc etc . It is heart wrenching to watch our fur babies dying a gory death. I have gone through that hell. First it is helplessness , then anger followed by long period of grief . I 'm still unable to come to terms with my Poochie's death as I could not recognize its injury due to which I could not provide timely medical aid. I am myself to blame for my Poochie's death. I 'm tormented with guilt .I am sorry to bother you with my grief. Time alone can heal our wounds. Your little Sweetie must be watching your from Rainbow bridge (where all pets once again become hale and hearty) but missing you.May God give you the strength to bear Sweetie's Loss. Take Care.
