Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.

Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day created by Deb Barnes at The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey in honour of the memory of Mr Jazz.
Everyone has been invited to take part to honour the memory of our own loved ones who wait at the Rainbow Bridge for us.

We have loved all of our cats deeply, but the brothers who left the biggest hole in our hearts are of course Eric and Flynn. We honour them today and every day and will love and miss them for ever.

Flynn, April 8th 2000 - May 1st 2017 age 17 years and 3 weeks.

Eric April 8th 2000 - March 19th 2013 age 12 years 11 months.

Today we also remember our other cats who came before and are fondly remembered and loved by us.
We don't have photos of all of them and some photos are very poor quality.

  18. You have loved and lost so many, most at a very ripe old age, which says a lot to the care you gave them. Thank you for coming by to visit us on this special day, too.

  19. Eric and Flynn were such special little boys. We miss them too. Thank you for introducing us to all the other beautiful animals you've shared your life with.

  20. Sending you hugs as you remember all your beautiful angels. XO

  21. What a touching post. We were fortunate to have the chance to know and love Eric and Flynn. They will always live in our hearts.
    It’s is a pleasure to meet all of the loved animals who have gone before. We’re sure they’ve enriched your lives immeasurably. Love to all.

  22. Of course we know your handsome boys, but how nice to see the kitties that came before them, and the horses from your past too. <3

  23. You have so many beautiful angels watching over you now, and waiting until that special day when you are reunited. Thank you for loving them so much, and remembering them always.

  24. How after all of these years do I not remember that you had such a large number of pets before Eric and Flynn? Eric and Flynn as you know, are the two special mancats that I knew and loved (and I STILL love them and miss them terribly). Sending you (((hugs))) and love as you remember xoxo

  25. Wow! You have been blessed with some amazing best friends through the years. I love that Auntie Puss was 24 years old. That is remarkable. ♥

  26. We had no idea what large cat hearts you two have had! What a lovely tribute to all of them as well as your beloved horses.

  27. A lovely tribute to those who have crossed the rainbow bridge.

  28. We had many a smile from Eric and Flynn over the years and they still keep coming in flashbacks. We didn't know the rest but we have a lot of Funny Farmers and Jan has a whole lot of past furries, so we know they are all remembered.

  29. It is obvious they were all so wonderfully loved...

  30. Most excellent to see all the befores!
    Alas, I don't have photos of most of mine, but they live forever yound in my heart as do all your fur babies!
    Sending you loving hugs
