Oh Bethy,

I am SO sorry. I am a HUGE cat lover and I've had them as fur babies all my life. I even worry about having a baby and how my cat Shally will adjust because she sleeps on my pillow or right next to me at night and is SO spoiled !

I truly believe that our pets are our families too and your kitty chose to come home and die. That's they way he wanted it....he wanted to be home with his mom and dad......many many hugs to you and DH. I don't know if you have ever seen the poem below but it brings me great comfort.......

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
