I have to say this, I just saw your thread in the Crossing The Bridge forum, and I know you and Mike have just had a very sad loss. But you have done so much to help so many other kitties through all the advice you have given here that when your own time comes, you're not going to be just greated at the Rainbow Bridge, you're going to be MOBBED!!!!!!

I have to agree with everyone, MA and Mike will be smothered and cuddled soooooo much, without fear of ever having to let go. It'll be pure bliss.


You've touched so many animals and people through these boards Mary Anne, and there is no way any of us could truly put into words just how grateful we are.

All I have to say is, Hissy for President!

Now, MA, if you don't mind, I have a story to tell you about yesterday.......I read the posting about Blink yesterday morning (I don't remember what time, but I posted as soon as I could type again) while I was at work. I spent a lot of my morning breaking into tears every time I thought about you, and Mike and Blink, don't laugh, I'm bad at that sometimes, but I'm one of these that if I cry, you know it-red swollen eyes, red nose the works. By the time I broke my clerk at the other store for lunch, I looked pretty rough, I know. I wasn't busy, so the one lady who was in got to talking, and she asked me what was wrong, 'cause she could tell I had been upset. I told her the whole long story about Hissy, the trips, TCS and about Blink, by the time I finished telling her, we were both in tears! She wanted me to post here that she had never met you, MA, but wanted me to tell you that she thought you were an angel! I told her that I would as soon as I got a chance to sit down long enough to compose myself to type it out....so there you are, and BTW, she told me she'd be praying for you too.

Ok, my turn to share. I have been thinking since last night how I could reply to this post and say everything I wanted to say. MA- I realized how much you truly care and look out for our babies when in one of our posts about 3 months ago we were discussing toys that our cats play with and I mentioned that Dori plays with a string. You popped in on the conversation and just mentioned how unsafe it is for cats to play with string and gave me a good explanation of why and what could happen. I remember thinking wow, this woman is amazing. It might sound like no big deal, but it was to me. Not only do you care for the cats you have at home, and the ones you rescue, but all of our cats as well. I posted back that Dori was very lucky that you are around and I meant that. We are all so lucky to know you. You have touched so many of us in so many ways. I don't know what we would do without you!

Amen to everything already said in this thread! Hang in there, MA. We love you.
post #15 of 20
MA I don't know what to say to you. Everyone has said it already. You are a very admired and much loved lady, and I agree with all that has been said, only I can't vote for you for president but they won't accept a UK vote. We all love you, and I think by now you must realise that, and I hope it brings you some comfort in your heart ache.

You guys please.....

First of all, you honor me with your words and the fact that you thought enough to post them here. Second of all, you drove me to tears again in sharing what you have shared here. Though tears are not far away from me right now.

I know to some I come across as heavy-handed. I am more an animal person than I am a people person. At a party, I am the shy one sitting in the corner trying to melt through the floor. But with my animals I feel contentment and love and fulfillment. I have no problem in helping others with their questions if I know the answers. If I don't know the answers, I usually know how to find out who does.

In a few weeks I approach a painful anniversary. It will be 28 years to the day my son was taken from me and he crossed the Bridge. I know that in my heart, what helps when I have to say goodbye to a special friend, is the thought that Jeremy Ryan is up there and he is a big part of me, and I hope also a big part of what was good about his father. He is there to greet all the animals and I believe that one day we will all be reunited and together again. That keeps me going.

Thank you all for your kindness, you have no idea how much it has meant to me to come here and read this board. My healing lies still in continuing to help others, to encourage those who are even entertaining keeping an inside outside cat NOT to. If these cats weren't feral, and there weren't so many of them, I would keep them all inside. But it is not possible. I cannot watch over them 24/7 at one point, I have to trust that they know what is safe and what is not. Again, I do not know why Blink was in the road, we will never know. All we know is now this bright and shining angel is shining elsewhere, and I have to hope making a young man laugh with all her insistent headbumps.

Hissy, you are never heavy handed, I just see you as a person who first and foremost is interested in the welfare of the poor animals who depend on us for everything.

You know, my favourite story about the trips was the day you posted photos of their first venture out of doors. That photo of you teaching them to climb trees just made me laugh! Thinking that you must be part cat, to know how to teach them cat skills like a good momma should.

And that really shows how you always put their safety first, all of the many many cats you have rescued over the years. And that is something that anyone should be proud of.
post #18 of 20
MA please stop torturing yourself. It was NOT your fault that Blink was in the road. As you say, we will never know why, or how, and as you said in another post, you know it is part of the grieving process. I am sorry about your son, I know only too well that heartbreak. It seems some people have such a lot to bear, and we never know why about that either. You won't remember a song called "Love Hurts", perhaps that is the answer, people who love so much also hurt so much, but we would never change anyhow. I too am much more comfortable with animals than people, but I do love people, it is just me not them.

I haven't had time to come here and post, but as I lurked I had to stop. That was an amazing time and I knew, as if I didn't know before , that at that point I could never pry myself away from MA because of events like this that she shares with us.

MA, you know you are the coolest chikk in my eyes, because of the gift you have with these creatures and your huge that shines every time you post. As I mentioned before, I wish I could take away the sorrow and pain of the past events of the year, but without them, you wouldn't be you. Every event shapes our soul, and if we didn't have bad times, we wouldn't really appreciate the good times. But during these bad times, you know, that you have many friends here to help you. Reach out when you need to friend, we'll be there.

I couldn't agree more.
