Goodnight Sweet Praline

Our dear sweet ,beautiful friend Praline
has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
 We have known her for quite a while,
and we will miss her very much.
We know our Mickey will be there to welcome her .
We are purring very hard for her Mom Paula.
We know that this is a very sad,emotional
and difficult time. We wish we could give her a hug!

We are so glad we had the privilege of getting 
to know such a wonderful kitty.
Our world is a little dimmer, but the heavens are 
a lot brighter.
Until we meet again,Sweet Praline.







The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this--the last battle--can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
Don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
What is to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer, so.
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me til the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
it is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close--we two--these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

I don't think my whiskers have been dry all day. We all really loved that gal.

We've been leaky eyed all day too. We're sure Sniffie and Mickey and all the other Bridge kitties are having a party to welcome Praline tonight.
