Below are some pictures and a memoriam to the beloved cat of a friend.She includes the url to the Petloss page containing the poem”Rainbow Bridge”. I know all of us that have had the companionship of a four-legged friend cry when we read this.

The Rainbow Bridge

Last evening I had to make the heartbreaking decision to send Jesse across the Rainbow Bridge……..
The report from his Vet was that he had a particularly aggresive tumour on his lower left jaw, which would require particularly severe surgery just to try and remove it.I felt it was unfair to cause him more trauma and discomfort …..he deserved to die with dignity.
Our caring and sympathetic Vet sent Jesse on his final journey as he snuggled in my arms .

Jesse was a major part of our family for nearly 16 years,being first saved from being a street kid as a young kitten by our daughter,and then as her circumstances changed,coming to live with us some eight years ago.

Jesse was an incredible personality………totally cool about everything;nothing fazed him and he didnt have a mean bone in his body; cheeky,mischevious and King of our other three cats.
If he had one fetish,it was shoes!
As soon as one of his humans shed their shoes,Jesse was into them—-rolling, wrestling, cuddling, and finally sleeping on them.
He was true foreman material.whatever his humans were doing,he had to check out that it was being done properly.

Billie,his “brother” for 14 years would have been waiting for him last night at Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks Jesse for your company;you will be sadly missed
