007 Sherwood - Rainbow Bridge's Newest Angel



007 had to be helped to the Bridge today. He was simply too sick. I think that Charley Taylor sent him to ML so that he could know such wonderful love during his final days. ML is heartbroken and so am I. I know that 007 is at the Bridge with Charley Taylor and they are talking about what a wonderful Mommy they had here on Earth, if only for a short time. They picked such a special person to spend their last time with here and they will be waiting at the Bridge.


love, Deb

Even though you didn't have him long, we know you loved 007 as one of your own. We are so sorry you didn't have more time with him but you made his last days enjoyable and sent him off to the bridge in peace instead of in pain. Purrs, tail wags and a big hug.

ML, I'm so sorry for the loss of sweet 007. I know that he is at the Bridge with Charley and they are talking about what a wonderful Mommy that they had, even for the short period of time. I'm here if you need me. Anytime. I love you dearly.

Max said...

Awww...I'm really sorry he had to go to the Bridge, but he came to ML for a reason. He needed her, and she gave him what he needed the most--love in the last days, and the guts to help him get where he needed to be.

Eric and Flynn said...

We are so very sorry that 007 was only able to spend such a short time with you, but we know that was the happiest time of his life finding love. Now he is running happily and healthy at the Rainbow Bridge with Charley Taylor.(((hugs))) to you.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

We're sure you're right - Charley sent him to you so he could find love, a name, and relief from suffering. It's sad enough that he had to go to the Bridge so young, but to think of him leaving this world alone & nameless is just horrible. Thank you for what you did for 007.

Laila and Minchie said...

Our hearts are breaking for all of you. What a wonderful few days he had with you. Heaven on earth.

Oh ML.
This was my first time to your blog. I remember now that you told me you had a personal blog. I always think of you when I go to the CB. I am heartbroken for you about this outcome for 007. It seems so much like Winnie's story. I will say to you what so many said to me - I am SO thankful that he had that "moment in time" with a human who loved him. A lifelong stray. He got to know love before he moved on. I'm SO GLAD he found you before he left for the bridge. Imagine how much suffering you prevented by helping him cross over.
LOVE.

Brian said...

My sisters and I are so very, very sorry to hear about 007. Indeed he was so very loved while he was with you. We send you our best purrs.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

The cozy cottage is crushed to read about 007Sherwood. We did not know...oh how your heart must ache. Not for what has been, but for what could have been. Time is so purrrrecious and you gave him the love in the few short days that he will tell God all about....
Bless your tender heart and big hugs.
Love Miss Peach

It is not the number or hours or days or months or years that a kitty is loved and nourished that matter. What matters most is that he was. 007 last days were spent in warmth and love and filled with caring and snuggles. We will purr
