Today so far is an awesome day. I woke up this morning to the sound of giant human feet padding their way towards the bathroom, long before I felt like I needed to sit in the halway and remind the People there are starving kitties living here. The Woman was up (though she didn't look like she was awake) so I followed her into the bathroom to make sure she wasn't planning on going back to bed. She plodded down the stairs and fed us, and then went back to bed, which I didn't care about because I was full and happy.

And then it got really sunny out--there are sunspots all over the freaking place downstairs! It's like a sunspot party, just about every window down there has it streaming in, making super warm places to lounge in. And there's kitty crack all over the freaking place too, thanks to Buddah ripping open a couple of toys. So we can roll in the kitty crack, then nap in the sun.

Later on, the Woman cleaned out our litter box.

What more does a cat need? Good food, sun, crack, and a clean place to poop. The only bad thing is that this day has been so good so far, it can only go downhill.

Maybe we'll get lucky and this will be the day the People don't do anything stupid.

Well...I can hope.

For those who don't yet know where the Rainbow Bridge is:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
