We lost our beloved pet cat - Velcro last Monday 1/16/17. She was 15 1/2 years old and added so much joy to our lives. When we took her to the Vet the prognosis was not good. She had cancer. Her blood pressure was above 300 and she had detached retinas.

Cats hide their problems well. She never complained and was still able to get thru the house. My husband said "we've got to let her go". It was no real life for a cat, to be blind and to sit on a step looking at a wall. And recently, she had a bad tooth and could not chew and she could no longer eat properly. It broke our hearts to have to let her go but it was best for her.

I thought about her being our "ghost cat". I had seen a video with a ghost cat and wondered if she would be ours. We stayed with her until she took her last breath. She looked so peaceful, like she was just taking a nap. I wondered if she had a soul and thought "yes ... she does". She was loved by us and we hope to see her when our time comes. We wouldn't mind catching a glimpse now an then. She had the most beautiful green eyes and she was a tuxedo cat.

I asked Velcro to send us a sign. That night when we went to bed, we both woke up at the same time. We would see a very faint ray of light that would dim and then get a little brighter.. it would dim again and this went on for a minute or two. We could not pinpoint the source ot the light and I felt it was a sign. I also heard some whispers later "velcro" and "heaven" so that gave me some peace.

This morning I heard whispers that said "Velcro is in heaven". Is it wishful thinking on my part. I really don't think so. I think our souls are connected when we love and that connection can never be broken. I'm still hoping to hear her purr or catch a glimpse of her but don't want her to be earthbound. Harry had a vivid dream about walking with her to the "rainbow bridge". She did not want to go but Harry told her that she had to and that one day, she would greet us.


Harry is going to try to draw what he saw in his dream.. I think it is a gift to have a vivid dream with our loved ones... it is a visitation. Have you dear readers ever had an experiences that you would like to share ? These thoughts give us hope and feelings of peace for our afterlife. Am I a nutcase ? I think not... As a wise man once said to me "Love is all and all is love". Was the pain we endured at the end worth it ?? Yes it was... 15 years of unconditional love. Life is for learning and we do have MANY lessons to learn.
