  The Lion Sleeps (peacefully) tonight

And his pride tries to get use to life without him.   magicmoon.gif

Awake tomorrow morning without pain, as the king of the new jungle.

Momma loves you, my handsome boy!

Bless you Paula, for having to make that most difficult decision for your precious baby, and let him go - where he is now free.  Free without pain and problems, running and enjoying the beautiful days as he awaits you at Rainbow Bridge.

You gave him so much love, caring, and were absolutely the best momma he could he possibly have.  And I know you cherish all your most special times, and your 'secrets' together.

I wish I could be there in person to wrap my arms around you.  Please know, I am sending you MUCH love, light, peace, and GREAT BIG COMFORTING HUGS to you !!!!

And, sweet AJ, fly free now 'Lion King', and watch over your mama and the pride. wub.gif   animcnda_lg.gif

With much much love,

Donna and 'The Bandit'  wub.gif

Paula, I have just read your post about AJ - I had been following your posting about him and felt so bad for you...

It's a terrible thing to have to say good bye to a beloved friend...but you did this out of love.

He was greeted by many pets from your friends at IMOM and they are all talking about what good Mom's and Dad's they had and AJ is telling them all about you...

I hope you are OK...thinking of you...Judy

Oh, Paula, I am so sorry.  I knew this day was coming very soon from ur last post. I am glad AJ (with his permission) gave u a bit more time to physically be with him. Now he is with u not just in the confines of ur home--but everywhere u ever go. His spirit and light are always going to be a part of u.
But... I know that AJ not being there physically is so painful.
I wish so much I could take ur pain away. I truly do.  broken_heart.gif

Thank you all.

Our weekend play in the yard seems so strange without AJ there to supervise.

I have a potted plant that wasn't doing so well, to the point the neighbors were making fun of me, as theirs were all so beautiful.  It had no flowers at all.  When I returned from the vets office after sending AJ to the Rainbow Bridge, the one thing I noticed is, that morning a single flower had opened on the plant.  It was amazing how much comfort that one little flower gave.

Today, that plant is loaded with blooming flowers.  I'm taking this as my sign that  my AJ has arrived and found all our buddies who have gone ahead.  

Shine on, my baby, shine on! rose.gif

Oh, what a wonderful sign u got from AJ!!! I have no doubt it is indeed a sign that AJ arrived at RB and is romping and playing with all his old buddies, and new buddies.

Thanks for sharing-it certainly made me smile.

Big hugs to u Paula.

yes, sweet AJ is dearly missed, as is his Uncle George, who went ahead 8 years ago today.   I hope the two of them are together today- George building something, and AJ supervising to make sure he does it right.  Love you guys. Easy does it.

Merry Christmas little angel.

Give a hug to all the family there with you.   We're roasting a chicken in honor or you today.  It's going to be so strange without you standing right in front of the oven, meowing out instructions on the order of who gets served first.

Thinking of you, Paula and our Lion King, A.J.  I know he continues to keep watch, as you continue to hold him in your heart.  He knows what an awesome mama you were and are . . . God bless you and The Pride.

'The Bandit' is sending you his very special loud purrs and head butts.  I'm sending you some very very special extra large hugs.  Please give The Pride lots of kisses and lovin' from me.  We both send all of you .....
