Caturday Art: Angels Among Us

Tomorrow, August 28th, is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. This is a day to honor and remember our furry angels, and it was initiated by Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey's Cat Chronicles, after she had to say goodbye to her beloved cat Jazz on August 28, 2013. To learn more about Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, just click here.

Well, today being the weekly and much anticipated (especially by my furbabies and me!) Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by lovely Athena, I had an easy time deciding what to draw. Like many of us here, I have furry little angels over at the Rainbow Bridge. So, to lead up to tomorrow's day of remembrance, I created this:


This drawing illustrates my furry (and even feathered!) angels, all of them being childhood comrades of mine, and some of which also grew with me into my adulthood. Of course, my beloved calico angel Rosie is in this drawing, as well as her loving brother Sammy. The other three angels you see here are Shellie the sweet Shetland Sheepdog mix, Banjo the loyal Australian Shepherd, and even my fun feathered friend Pippin the budgie .

Since tomorrow is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day as well as the fun Sunday Selfies blog hop, we will be posting a special picture that fits both categories. It's one of this human's favorite pictures she has with sweet angel Rosie, taken during one of our adventures together. We want to make tomorrow a day of happy memories, so we can't wait to share ours as well as see those of others.

Have a beautiful Caturday, furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today's tip is plain and simple, and it is to please do your best to always remember your Rainbow Bridge angels fondly. Although losing them can and does indeed fill us with grief, always remember the good times. After all, that is surely what your furbabies would want. We give our little furry babies the best lives we can in the time that we have with them, and although they may not be able to verbally express it, please know that our furbabies are grateful for and filled with love over this. That is why, to honor them, we should always focus on the happy, fun, beautiful memories we created with them. What's more, to further honor them, please feel free to share such memories tomorrow, on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.
