Darin crosses the Rainbow Bridge. February 9, 2008

Posted by kittyadventures in Uncategorized.

Dear friends it is with a heavy heart and many shed tears that I come to you this evening to share the sad news that Darin has crossed over the Rianbow Bridge this day.


He has been afflicted with a cancerous growth on his nose for some time and we finally took him to be relieved of his pain today.

He is at rest in his favorite garden among the daffodils and some Irises from Metsakins.

Aubrey and I laid him in the ground with Cala lilies and daffodils and alysum.


It was a peacful time with those he loved beside him.

He will be sorely missed by us all.


He would hope that you would all remember his aspirations for all mankind….


That you would stop long enough in your rush to do too much and cuddle and love those who are near and dear to you.


That you would know when you are home and that you would always be able to find your way home when you are lost.

There is always time to smell the flowers and the cat nip.

Take a nap at least once in your llife outside in a spring breeze.

A purr will take you a long way.


Always be an ambasador for your species.

Be a friend to those you meet. Always work your way toward peace.


The sun has set today on a beautiful soul who walked this earth in a snow white fur coat witha generous purr and a warm heart.

He does look like a gentle white bear. This is a very heart-felt, full and moving tribute; I'm sure Darin would approve. You've expressed perfectly what it's like to be in the presence of such a beautiful soul. His life touched others…oh, pooh – I have no words.
My thoughts are with you. I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.

Oh Annie, even though we all knew it was coming, it is still such a sad thing. Thankyou for taking the time to do this post. It can't have been easy so soon after. Mr Fred sends his condolences too.

Big hugs for you.

Such a truly beautiful cat. I am so sorry Annie. Darin looks like a great kind of cat that I would love to pet for hours. Your tribute here to him is one of the most touching I have ever seen (and I used to work at an animal hosp.). I love the way he is all white and you surrounded him with daffodils, irises, calla lillies and alysum! I didn't even know him but I miss him too.

16. YGRS - February 11, 2008

I't so hard to lose a wonderful friend like this. I know what you're feeling right now.As soon as I saw his picture, I saw what a handsome beefy boy he was! He looks and sounds like the kind of kittycatter you just want to scoop up and hug and cuddle for hoursand hours. What a love.He had some good philosophies, too. &:o)Please know that there are many of us who know how hard this is for you to go through. You were a wonderful mommy and friend to him though. How lucky you both were to have been able to share each other's lives.Sending a big hug to you, Annie.

Annie, once again your heart shows through your writing and as usual it's beautiful. Lots of hugs and love! Bailey and Lola say hugs and cuddles.

19. Laney - February 11, 2008

:(( Poor Darin. Did he always have a black spot that then turned cancerous? And did he have something to his ear?

20. little miao - February 25, 2008

I'm so sorry for your loss. (I feel bad that I missed your post, forgive the lateness of my comment). He was a beautiful, gentle kitty and now he is resting in a beautiful place amidst flowers and in your memory.*hugs*

I'm so sorry to hear you've lost your friend. All kittehs go to heaven…….. I'm sure he's up there chasing the souls of fat mice and birds.

Dearest Annie, I'm so sorry I missed this post. Losing our dear sweet animal companions is every bit as hard as human ones. Sending you love and light and hugs. Darin is watching out for you from the Bridge and is grateful for the love and care he had in your home.
