Hey it’s me again, Benson. I know, I know I am not suppose to be able to communicate since I crossed over on Monday morning but I have a few things to say before I get too busy.
First crossing over that rainbow bridge is not so bad. Not really. Oh yeah, it is tough to leave those who love you behind and all those fun times, toys and such. The bridge is actually rather cool. There are these gold bricks that glow as you step on them. Not a garish gold or glow like that broom head has in his apartment, rather a soft welcoming gold and a glow more like a halo. There are cardinals to show you the way and angel cats waiting on the other side of crossing over the bridge of that big big sky to climb ever so high to heaven.
Oisie and Vester were there waiting for me. Even though I had only seen them in person briefly, I knew them well from our conversations and touching paws through the door. We are now roaming around together and reminiscing about our time with our Lady. We talk about how we drove her crazy at times not liking this food or that. That she would still go out and find something new for us to try or even better bake turkey thighs for us. And oh those cans of tuna and salmon that we so love.
Well we all know that was a good life however here in heaven, there are long low tables of every kind of food we could possibly ever want. There are mice covered in chocolate which on earth we are not suppose to have. Here though everything is ok. There are big bowls of treats that we can have any time of the day and not just after dinner to clean our teeth. So we are quickly returning to our fat ol selves we once were before we became ill.
There is an abundance of toys and an ongoing supply of catnip which keeps us all high as if we are ol hippies. We cruise around. Climb big beautiful trees. Take a cat nap on huge cozy pillows. It really is called heaven for a reason because everything is so nice and there is no fighting just peace and love.
I have encountered one or two of my ol chums and a couple of enemies from the alley. They did not end up with the good life as I did. Rather their life was much shorter then mine and not so comfortable. They are here now and all is better because now they have a really good, safe life with everything they ever longed for or missed out in having.
We all want you to know, we look down over you. We each have our people we look after. The ones who gave us homes and then the others, who did not get homes like the guys I know from the alley, help us look out for you.
Today we are sending as much love and hope as our little hearts can send because we know so many, so very many are concerned about the broom head. Please know we are going to mess with that broom head. We are going to send fleas to be all over his head. We are going to send mice up his pant legs even though the mice will turn around and run back down because of the awful sight they encounter. We are going to curl snakes around his waist so he can’t really breath very well and finally we are going to scratch the hell out of those damn ugly gold chairs. You know the kind of stuff cats love to do yet don’t because they are grateful for their home. Now we are free to do it to the ones who act so badly.
So know we are up here even though we miss you and we understand how sad you feel because we are gone but don’t do that because we loved you very much while we were with you and all is so lovely here. We will wait and watch for when you cross over the rainbow bridge just as the others did for us. The cardinals will sing happily because we are together again. For now though find peace in your heart and treat everyone as if they were your favorite cat….well maybe not the petting and kissing part but the other stuff. Share your food, give as you can and be as kind as possible to everyone because just like me, some are rough and tough because of their lifestyle, not because of their heart.
That is it for now….maybe I’ll swoop in with a few wise words from time to time. Oh and by the way, I am back to creating a bit of art, so I may toss something at you from time to time….so long for now. Paws up with love.
