be at peace, sweet Ubee



Tonight, Ubee took a sudden turn for the worse.
He was walking along, then fell over. His back legs stopped working.
I picked him up, and knew that he didn't have long.
There was just too much internal damage - we'll never know from what -- but when Bessie found him, his back end never was right. He put up a valiant fight, but in the end it wasn't enough.
I got into bed and held him. He crawled up under my chin and wrapped his paws around my finger and purred one last time.
Then he went to the bridge.

Spooker was with me in bed, and Daphne is here on my feet now.
Somehow, I'll be okay.

Please say one last prayer for our little guy.
I love you, Ubee.

Ubee at peace, now.

  4. Oh no. :( I'm so sad to hear that little Ubee went to the Bridge. Our eyes are leaking. It has been a very sad morning all around. You are an Angel for helping Ubee, Not The Mama, and he knew some kindness and love thanks to you before he went to the Bridge.

  5. My heart hurts. And yes, my eyes are leaking streams.
    The only good thing is that he didn't go to the bridge all alone out on the streets. He had you to guide him. But my heart still hurts for you...

  14. I am so grateful Ubee had you to give him love. My heart is breaking and it hasn't even healed from losing my own beloved kitty in June. All we can do is love them and believe that they are happy and healthy on the other side and that they will joyfully meet us when we get there. Bless you Mo, you're one of the good guys, an angel to animals in need.

  29. Oh no. I was reading posts in order and was really hoping for good news today.

    Bless his heart, and yours, Mo.

    You know, we won't know what happened to him in his short little life, but we will know that his last few days were warm and happy and filled with love. He wasn't alone, and he was safe, and he had yummy sauce in his belly, and he had Mo to cuddle with.

    And now he can walk and run and play.

    Thinking about you today, Mo.

  32. Oh no, Ubee. This is very upsetting and heartbreaking. I am so sorry that Ubee did not make it. But I am grateful that he went to the Bridge with you holding him and knowing he was loved. At least he knew love in his short life before he had to leave. Goodbye sweet Ubee.

  33. Oh, Not the Momma, I am so sad to hear that little Ubee just couldn't make it. My momma said she had a similar experience with a little kitten before--poor little guy was just too sick inside and couldn't get his insides working again. We are glad to know that Ubee was not alone and was loved.

  43. Ubee is over the rainbow bridge, waiting for you, some day a long time from now. There is plenty of light, playing through trees, blown in a warm spring breeze, dancing leaves fluttering around and salmon flavored whatever they eat in the Summerlands.

    This pain is horrible and real and my heart breaks for you. Your life will never be the same without Ubee and that is as it is supposed to be. A memory of sweet sorrow that is as sharp as a blade now, but will mellow into a wips of a mingled half smile, when you are ready, in your time.

    Have a ritual for Ubee. If you want me to send you the one I cooked up for the passing of my dog, Jesse, just say the word. If not, I am still here, candle lit, love sent.

    At least he was loved while he passed on. There are a lot of animals (and people) who die alone, unwanted, and unloved. Thank goodness Ubee at least got to learn what it's like to be cared for and loved.

  66. Before I went to sleep, I decided that the next morning I would go and get a pet. I was not sure if it would be a dog or cat or bird or something else. All I knew was that I needed, no, wanted to share my life with another creature that would accept my friendship and affection.
    As I slept, I fell into a deep dream.
    There before me sat the most beautiful creature, neither male nor female. To either side of this wonderous creature, there were two indentical waterfalls with deep clear pools at their base. From each waterfall, the most crystal blue water cascaded down. I was entranced. Never before had I seen seen such beauty, such serentity.
    Wordlessly, the creature motioned for me to come towards the pools at the base of the waterfalls. I noticed that at each pool, there was a small silver cup attached to a fine silver chain.
    "Dip thy finger into the pool and taste." the creature said as it gestured to the pool to its left.
    I did as instructed. As the clear cool liquid touched my tongue, my stomach clenched with pain and my heart pounded fiercely within my chest. A hollowness rang throughout my being that I feared I would never recover from.
    "This is the Pool of Loss." the creature said and then it motioned to the other pool of water. "Dip thy finger into the pool and taste."
    Warily, I drew my forefinger through the water of the other pool of water. As my finger touched my tongue, a joy so deep and pure touched my soul. A wave of happiness and wonder drowned the pangs of sorrow and loss the first pool had caused.
    "This is the Pool of Memory." the creature said. "If you take one of God's creatures into your heart, you must be prepared to drink from both pools. Do you accept this as your covenant, your bond with one of God's creatures?"
    Silently I nodded yes.
    "Then drink from each pool." The creature instructed as it motioned towards the silver cups at the sides of the pools."For now they will bear no taste, but in time you will discover how much you have partaken of each."
    The very next day, I went and found a kitten at a local shelter. It was the smallest one of the litter and it was the one who seemed to need me the most.
    I watched it grow and play and I revelled in the smallest joy it brought to me. But then without warning, it was taken from me in a way most sudden and cruel.
    Once again I felt the pangs I had felt in my dream when I tasted the waters of the Pool of Loss. Only this time, I thought the pain would never leave. Then, I remembered the taste of the waters from the Pool of Memory. Slowly the pain of Loss began to subside, and was replaced with the joy of Memory.
    I realized that I had drank more from the Pool of Loss than the Pool of Memory in my dream. But now I knew that the Pool of Memory brought more than enough comfort to offset the pain the Pool of Loss could cause.
    I now bear the knowledge that each time I open my heart to one of God's creatures, I drink from the Pool of Memory and the Pool of Loss. How much I partake depends on each creature and that, in the end, the power of Memory is so much more powerful than the power of Loss.
