Remembrance Gallery

remembering george cat of cat chatRemembering with love, those special cats who have left pawprints on your heart.

This gallery of remembrance was set up following the loss of our dear George Cat (right), one of the founding felines of the Cat Chat Charity, and a very special little rascal!

This is a place to remember your much loved cats, and a way to pay a real tribute to them, by helping rescued cats find the homes they need. Therefore, we ask for a small donation to place your tribute here, where it will remain for a minimum of one year.

In memory of Mischa
February 2014

To my darling Mischa. You have been such a loyal friend and I will really miss you. We were so honoured when you chose our house to be your maternity ward in 1996. My heart is breaking (again). I hope you have also found Biscuit, Whisky, Sam, Kitten and my parents at Rainbow Bridge. Until we all meet again, sweet dreams.

Lots of love from Mum (Helen)

Until we meet again, sweet dreams my baby,
All our love Mummy & Mischa

In Memory of Thomas
Prince among Cats
c. 2001 - 27/12/2015

Tommy, from the moment you strolled into our lives you won our hearts. Dear, smiling boy with your big, Charlie Chaplin feet and your purr like a little tractor, we miss you so much. We knew you were losing your brave battle with CKD, but never thought you would leave us that way. I pray you are reunited with your friend, Rosie dog and you will play happily at the Bridge until we meet again,

your loving Mummy, Daddy (Sue and Dave) brother and sisters, Bobby, Willow, Purdy and Grace.

Tribute to Kitty

In Memory of Kitty, who went to Rainbow Bridge on 4 July 2012

Our beautiful golden princess, you were so caring and loving, with the sweetest most uncomplaining nature of any cat we have ever known. You would rush to us when we came in and welcome us with your sparkling but very loud miaow. We loved to sing “All the single kitties” to you as you lifted your paw along. You loved playing “stringy”, chasing around after an old bit of string. You were so poorly but bore all your visits to the vet and treatments so bravely. We wanted to have longer with you and tried everything to save you, but it was so sadly not to be.

We miss you so much Kitty. The house is empty and cold without you. We can sometimes hear your little paw steps jumping down from the windowsill and hope that you are still close to us.

Sleep tight at Rainbow Bridge darling Kit and wait for us… xxx

Tribute to Kitty

Remembering Sammy
Who went to Rainbow Bridge in August 2005

You came into our lives as a stray and were so frightened and thin that you wouldn't even come near us when we left food out for you for a year and lived under the holly bush. Gradually we won your trust and you moved in to live with us. You made our lives complete and we were happy and honoured that you chose to come to be with us as our darling companion. You were such a fine cat, and a real gentleman.

So loved and longed for always darling Sam.
Until we meet again.

A dedication to William May 2001- 4 June 2015.

My dearest William,

You were the most complex and complicated cat ever, but so magnificent and loving. You were nervous and skittish, but loved the outdoors where you patrolled your territory like a gentle giant.
We went on an amazing 10 year journey together of trust, love and happiness.
You were there when I lost my Oskar, but now you have left a massive void and my heart is breaking again. My love for you will never leave me, you were and will always be my sweet William.

My love for you forever and always, your Mam xxXxx.

In memory of Duke (aka Mr Squeaky!)
28 February 2015

Duke, you seriously were the nicest cat in the world!
You lived a long a happy life - and you were loved so dearly. An older black rescue cat, you came to live with us with your brother Luke in December 2001. You were always great company, affectionate, and a great source of amusement!
For anyone reading this... Please don't overlook black, or older cats (Duke was both!). A great companion & missed so much already.

RIP, Claire, Alistair (& Peggy the chicken!) xxx

God Looked Around His House and Found An Empty Space.
He then looked upon this earth, and saw your tired face.

For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.

You crossed Rainbow Bridge long before your time.
You're missed so so much darling boy

You were taken too early my darling boy, Mommy is sorry she was unable to take you home to rest but a part of you will always be in my heart. Mommy misses your little cheeky face, character and your zest for life. The thought of not being able to touch, hear, see, smell and feel you is heartbreaking.
But I know we will meet soon with you teasing Chika and eating your yummy tuna, play hard and remember Mommy loves and misses you.

In Memory of Lord Teddy Hamilton who went to Rainbow Bridge
October 2014

If I had known that on that day our time was near the end
I would have done things differently, my forever friend.
I would have stayed right next to you deep into the night
but I thought I'd see you in the early morning light
And so I said "Good night" to you as I walked in through the door
never thinking of the time when I'd see you no more.
If I had known that on that day our time was near the end
I would have done things differently, my forever friend.
Taken away from us so young and beautiful
Forever in our hearts

May God give you the best place in Heaven

From your Forever Family

Tribute to Kitty

c1990 - 7th June 2010

In memory of our dearest Humbug, our Princess Pretty. We first met you when you came to say hello when we first moved in 10 years ago and have been part of our lives ever since, first as an overnight visitor and then as a permanent resident for the last 5 years. You ruled the street with a quiet grace, and loved nothing more than to await unsuspecting doggies as they passed our drive, when they would be greeted with a smart tap on the nose or hiss. Everyone knew you and loved you. You loved us singing your special "You're Beautiful" song to you and having tummy tucks and toe ticks. You were always with us and tended to us when we were ill, never leaving our side. Such a loving, darling and extra special girl - one in a million. Our house is now empty and all the life has gone from it. We miss you so very, very much.

Sleep tight at Rainbow Bridge darling Hum, with your sisters and Bella and

Until we meet again...
Love you more than anything
Mummy and Daddy xxx

My darling baby girl, you were a shining light in my life, we chose each other that day in the rain. You were one in a million pusskin, you touched so many hearts. Exploring all over Northumberland together. You were taken so young and I miss you more than I ever thought possible. I'd do anything for one more day. I know you would have loved it in the woods where we laid you, climbing trees and chasing butterflies. We will meet again my sweet princess. Sleep well.

Love Mummy and Daddy xxxx

There is not a day that goes past that I don't think about you my darling girl.
I miss you more every day and so do your sisters and new brother.
The girls still recognise your name when I talk to you each night.
I think of our last cuddle and I can smell your special scent and that helps me to go on.
You are a very special girl who brought such light into my life.
I think of your cheeky ways and look at your pictures and can finally smile at the memories, though I'm crying at the same time.
We will be together again one day Ruby, you can count on it.

Luke, you were a legend in your own lifetime!

You lived a long a happy life - and you were loved to the max! An older black rescue cat, you came to live with us with your brother Duke in December 2001. We already miss your yowling and purring, and your many funny ways. You were always great company, affectionate, and a great source of amusement!
For anyone reading this... Please don't overlook black, or older cats (Luke was both!), I didn't think it was possible to love a cat this much, and he gave as good as he got!

RIP Luke - always in our hearts and minds.

A Tribute to Oskar
May 1994 - Nov 13 2012

I fell in love with you Oskar the moment you arrived at my home as a 7 month old RSPCA cruelty case.

You were with me for 18 years and were my rock when times got tough, as you were more than a cat my beautiful boy. You will always be 'the one' in my life like no other and the pain of losing you made my heart break and bleed.
You were taken from me in a tragic way, but I will never stop loving you and you are in my heart forever.

All of my heart and love xx - your mam.

Tribute to Bramble
In Memory Of Molly

Molly you are missed more than words can ever say. Our hearts broke when we had to say goodbye. Our memories of you will always be happy ones and we are so honoured to have had you in our lives for 15 years.

You were so loving and full of affection. You had your little quirky ways that made you special. Maisy misses you, I know that you see her when she sits along side where you lay.

We will always love you, and we know you love us and are never far away.

Love you x
A Tribute to Bramble
February 1995 To 5 October 2012

We chose you for that special look you always had with your long glossy hair and fluffy tail. You gave us many years of fun pleasure and kindness. Always there for a special cuddle or stroke and brush up.

Now reunited with your mate Brandy, both of you are always in our thoughts and hearts - we love you so much.

Goodnight and God bless until we meet at Rainbow Bridge. Bramble Bush (Brammers) we miss you every day and will never forget you.

Lots of Love Mom & Dad & the Gang.

In Memory of Patsy
May 7th 1996 - 4th January 2013

You came into our lives as a beautiful bundle of love over 16 years ago. You stood out from the other kittens, not only with your beauty but also your mischievous ways. You always brought beauty, love and sunshine into our lives. You brought me comfort through the loss of a child and being diagnosed with cancer.

Recently, you became poorly. Your kidneys were failing and the vet said there was nothing we could do. You went to sleep in my arms as I cried. You were my angel, a pleasure and a privilege to share my life with, and can never be replaced. Rest in peace my angel. I hope we meet again someday. I will cuddle you then, and never let you go.

Love Donna & Guy Corbin xxx
