Our Dear Maddie
July 2000 - 24th May 2012
While I was away dear Maddie became worse and showed signs of distress and pain and so my daughter took her for her last journey before she made her way to Rainbow Bridge ...met I am sure by those wonderful felines of ours that have gone before. I had said my good byes as I had my doubts that she had much more time with us and for that I was thankful. Apparently her parting was serene and almost beautiful ...like the beautiful cat that she was.
When she was a tiny kitten she woulds sit in my daughters pocket and go for walks and car rides with her ... she was an amazing mother and grandmother...she even lactated when her daughter found it hard to feed and care for her unexpected kittens. She fell in love with our Felix the day he arrived ....father to her litter ... and they were inseparable until the last few months of her life when she seemed to encourage him to become close to Rosie. Felix is one of the only cats Rosie tolerates.As Maddie left the house for her journey to Rainbow Bridge, she called out to the others in a voice my daughter had never heard before and for the next 48 hours there was a strange air amongst them all ... I feel she was their Queen but I am not sure who is next in line and maybe that is the problem ...neither do they.
Take Care. xx
