Lilly crossed the Bridge

Good bye sweet sister. I'll miss you so much and will never forget you.

Lilly crossed very peacefully. Mom is a wreck but knows this was for the best. Besides a tumor, she was dealing with serious heart issues the ER didn't even tell her about. Her heart was not where it was suppose to be and it looked like there might have been a tumor there too. We are having a McDonald's M&M McFlurry in her honor tonight.


  1. I am so sad to lose such a sweet friend. Godspeed to you Lilly. You are now free of pain sickness and in good company.

    We continue to wish Laila and her mom peace and comfort. Lilly was very special and you will always have her in your heart as I will mine.

    Purrs and headbutts,

    SophieKitty and her Mommie

  2. Even though we didn't know Lilly well, we are saddened by your loss. It is never easy when a furbaby leaves for the Bridge.

    We send purrs and tail wags.

  3. Godspeed Lilly...hope they serve you a gigantic McFlurry as soon as you arrive...

  4. after we post this mommy is going to go out and get a mcdonals m n m mcflurry in Lilly's honor and let us haf some.

    We lighted a candle when mommy gotted home to help Lilly on her way. We knows that there were lots of our "ones who came befores" there to greet her and show her around. She's free from the tumors now and waiting for the time when you will all be reunited.

    Rest well Lilly. We will meet you at the Bridge.

    Sammy and Miles Meezer

    Sending mournfull purrrsss and gentle headbutts.

  24. The Meezers sent me here. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I guess this is hitting me so much because I have a wolfie named Lilly(spelled the same way!).

    Hugs & Wags

  25. I am so sorry. We wish you the best.

    Chaiyah and Mookie

  26. I am so sorry to learn about Lilly's issue~
    I am purring and purring for you all and Lilly~!
    We will never forget her, and save her best for last :)

  27. I am so sorry that Lilly went to the Bridge. She was so sick that it was for the best, but that is little comfort right now, I know. She's probably introducing the other kitties at the Bridge to the joys of McFlurries right now.

  28. Bless you sad hearts at the loss of your precious kitty Lilly. You loved her with all you had to give and she knew that. May your memories comfort you right now and know how much we all care.
    Love Miss Peach

  30. This is a sad time, losing lovely Lilly, but you made the right decision and gave her a wonderful last day, not to mention a great life with love and comfort. In time memories of her will bring a smile to you all again. Take care xx

  31. Sweet Lilly, we even don't find words for our sadness!

    However it's better for Lilly to be free of pain now. Rest in peace, little sweetheart!

    We wish you, Peggy and Laila, all the best. take some days off and spend time with each other!

    Take care!

    Chica, Pumuckl & Ana

  32. We are so saddened by your loss. We hope you find strength in this difficult time and may Lilly have a peaceful time across the bridge where we all have to go one day. Sending many comforting purrs to you all from us at the SnowForest clan.

  33. We are glad to know that sweet Lilly went to the Bridge peacefully.

    You have definitely gained a dear little guardian angel and she will watch over you always.


  34. Awww sweet Lilly I am sorry to hear that you had to go to the bridge. I know though that your mom must have known you was very tired and she would have sent you on your way with kisses.

    I am sorry your mom has a pussycat hole in her heart, but I know that soon she will be able to look at all of your lovely pictures and smile again.

    Smooches and purrs.

    Poppy and mum Q

  35. our candle was burning for Lily throughout the day yesterday to have a safe journey to the bridge!
    and it will continue to burn for hers today too!

  36. I'll also be burning candles to wish Lilly a safe journey over the rainbow. It hurts me a lot to see another friend in the CB going away so suddenly but I think it's the best too for her to be free from more pain.

    My condolences to all.

  37. We are so sorry to lose Lilly. We hope she is sharing a McFlurry with our friends already at the Bridge. Purrs and purrayers are headed to her family.

    Purrs and Snuggles
    Gracie and Mom Debra

    Don't Grieve Too Long
    Don't grieve too long for now I'm free
    I've followed the path God set for me
    I ran to Him when I heard His call
    I swished my tail and left it all.

    I could not stay another day
    To meow, to love, to romp or play
    Games left unplayed must stay that way
    I found such peace; it made my day.

    My parting has left you with a void
    Please feel it with remembered joy
    A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss
    Oh yes, these things I too shall miss

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
    My lifes been full, you've given so much
    Your time, your love and gentle touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
    Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
    Lift up your head and share with me
    God wanted me; He set me free!!

  39. They say the pain will ease someday, but that the good memories will last forever. I hope the memories of Lilly and the good times give you some comfort now. Purring for you now....

  40. sending you much love and hugs to get you through this very difficult time...xxxx

  41. We will miss Lilly very much. Purrs and prayers for all of you during this very sad time.

    The years I've worn you,
    warm on my shoulder,
    ended here ...
    surprised to find us older.

    And there was nothing
    left to do today
    but hold you close
    and help you on your way.

    Be still, my little cat.
    Be well; be free.
    I know that you're somewhere near,
    and loving me.

    Mawmee wantz ta tellz you dat God lets hur see da Rainbow brij onse. Dis a tru storee - Whn hur beloved Jason gotted run ovfur. Jason waz a house panfur who loved his gurl, a white cat name Aone (Ah-Wun).

    Now Aone had gone ovfur da brij frum Kidney failure many years afore dis accident (probably due to sumpin in da foodiez - backs in 1980 sumpin).

    And Jason waz furry old by den and couldn't seez much. He also hadz arthritis and dehr waznt sumpin on da markets den furry Katz.

    Any wayz, he gotted outz, lookin fur a plase 2 go ta sleepy and go over da brij on hiz own. But he couldn't see. He walked cross a busy street and gotted runs over on da wayz back (whnz Mawmee and hur Mawmee waz callin him.)

    Mawmee felt devastated and wents a laid downs on hur bed to purray and cry. Din da oddest ting happened. She hurds a bootiful voice say, "I see Aone!" and den she watched hur gentle house panfur (who taught Aone how ta use da littur box vs da baftub) jump thru a diamond shaped window of light!

    So dis here RainBow Bridge to God's Lovin plase is real and Kittees and uther love babeez gets ta go dehr!!
