RIP Poo-Face Salvador

Tonight, my big brother Salvador went to the Rainbow Bridge.
Mum and dad had taken him to the v-e-t this evening because his health had been getting a lot worse lately. He wasn't grooming himself, he kept having accidents in the house, and two days ago he stopped eating properly.
When the v-e-t examined him, he found a very big tumour on one of his kidneys. The v-e-t said that because it had grown so fast (it wasn't there six weeks ago when Salvador last went to the v-e-t) that there was nothing they could do for him, and the fact that he had stopped eating meant that Salvador was telling us it was his time.
Farewell poo-face, I hope you are having fun over the bridge and chasing lots of birds.

Run Free Salvador - you have earned your angel wings.

Mum and dad are happy they got to meet you - they didn't think you were as poo-facey as you were made out to be.

Take care of eachother,


opy, charlie, greg and brooke

All of us here in Bumpass want you and your mum and dad to know how sorry we are that Poo-Face Salvador has gone to The Rainbow Bridge. He is now chasing all the Mr. Mouses that are up there in the green fields. The fur monsters will howl at the sky for the DOG to take care of Salvador. We hope that a part of his spirit will remain in Huffledom.

Teri and her Stylish Adventure Cats said...

We say goodbye to Salvador, our new friend, who has the wings of an angel now.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance

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.

The Island Cats said...
