Miss Marble has flown to the Bridge

Miss Marble writes:

This is my last blog post.  Goodbye friends!  I will watch over every one of you from the Rainbow Bridge, and I will send down my love to you!

Last night, I snuggled with Mommy, Daddy, and my inside family, but this morning I wanted out again (as usual).  My purrents have a jingle bell necklace on the door to the other dimension (aka the front door), and I have learned to make that ring to tell them I want out.  I rang the bell this morning, so Mommy let me out, saying "See you later" as usual.  They never kept me inside against my will.  I was born feral, and they knew that I would never be happy as just an inside kitty, so they let me go outside when I wanted.

A few hours later, Daddy was getting ready to leave for an appointment.  He went out the door, looked at the road, and saw something.  It was I, lying in a pool of blood on the road.  I had been hit by a car while crossing the road.  I was killed instantly.

At the approximate time I was killed, my inside-mama-cat Freya (not my real mama cat, but she treated me as her kitten) had stopped walking for a few minutes and sat down, unfocusing on the household and focusing on something else.  Mommy thought it was very strange at the time, but she and Daddy now realize that she probably had heard me make one last cry.

Daddy collected me on a bag and buried me under my favorite cedar tree and roses, where my sister and I used to play as kittens and rest as adults.  Mommy and Daddy are hoping that my sister will come visit, but they haven't seen her since Panther took over the backyard territory.

I love you all very much, and that love transcends death.

Oh no! I am so sorry. My heart breaks when an outside kitty dies this way. The cat before me was indoor/outdoor and my human constantly worried this would happen. It didn't (she died of cancer at 15), but every day my human knew she dodged a bullet, so to speak. Purrs to you and the other kitties in your family.

We had never met Miss Marble, but are so, so sorry she has gone to the RB in this way. We have an angel sisfur, Twinkle, who could never stop wandering. She was found one foot from the curb in front of our house. She was still warm. Mommy just sat and held her and cried for what seemed like furever. We are sending our prayers and hugs and purrs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo. We know you are heartbroken.

Too bad she wanted out so much. Kitties need to stay inside. I cried when I read about Miss Marble. I didn't know her but I wish I had. RIP sweet one.

We are very sad that Miss Marble has left for The Bridge, she was a beautiful girl.

We know that you gave her the life that she wanted and needed and she had most excellent care and love from you. Don't let anyone try and guilt trip you about allowing her outside. You did what was absolutely right for her.

We send you love and rumbly purrs at this sad time
