Remembering Chase Bird

We’ve lost three of our kitties in the month of October. Chase Bird went to the Rainbow Bridge on Oct. 27, 2015.

The heart is forever changed when we lose one of our furbabies. Usually the hurt loses its sharpness after a while. 

But a year has gone by since we lost Chase Bird, and the hurt is still sharp. Maybe because we didn’t get the chance to say goodbye. His death was unexpected.

Any words I write about him now would never do justice to the wonderful cat he was, what a pure and sweet spirit he had. Here are some of my favorite photos of him.

We love you forever, Chase Bird.

  1. My favorite is your first picture of Chase Bird. He looks so regal.

  2. I remember all the wonderful things you shared about him. He was very special. This is a lovely tribute to him.

  3. I remember Chase Bird was your cat when I first started visiting your blog and when you had to say goodbye. He was so beautiful. What an imprint he has left on your heart.

  4. Chase Bird seems like a VERY special kit-cat friend! Our mom thinks the hurt never really goes away, it just changes.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  5. A beautiful tribute to Angel Chase Bird. I am sorry for your loss. He's still with you, absorbing your love and listening to your heartbeat.

  6. What an interesting name...Chase's meaning is probably as special as he was. Purrs as you remember him.
