My Time Has Come....


My Life was Grand
by Madi(son) D Cat

The time has come for me to join the others
I was not ready and neither was Mother.
When the angels came to fly me up into the sky,
To his Bonsai Bunny my Dad said bye, bye.
They have walked this line 2 times before Me. 
Easy it is not no matter the number of days.
As I crossed the bridge, so many friends greeted me. 
They all spoke at once and were full of glee
Eager to tell me of sun puddles, boxes and food for free.
My friends mourn me not,
Since the day I was born, my life has truly been ‘heaven’ on earth.
Remember I love you. You know how much?
To quote my human Sis, “ I love you two hours and a bunch”.
I bid you farewell and I end this poem as I always have
Hugs Madi your Bfff


March 11, 2002-September 13, 2018
We thank Ann at Zoolatry ๐Ÿ’žfor capturing the Essence of Madi here in 2 different sun puddles.


Mom here:  This was so very sudden.
Dear sweet precious friends I wish I could have contacted each of you in person so that you would not have to read this very unexpected news on a Monday.  
Madi has been fighting kidney disease since June 2017.  It has been my goal every day since June 2017 to celebrate Madi's life.  She and I were all about fun and picking on each other and most of all we were about FAMILY we found here in Blogville you all enriched our lives more than you will ever know..
Even though she was a diva she fought like a WARRIOR Princess; daily subqs, 5 kinds of medication 2 Xs a day...in her food.. which she also took without complaining.  I think you all know Madi was really and truly the apple of our eyes and loved to the moon and back.  Last week it was obvious to me that she was not on top of her game, she was sleeping more than usual and I mean a deep sleep.  As you remember, she was having trouble jumping up too...but we were managing all that comes with being a Senior Diva.  Thursday, September 13, I could tell she was not feeling well.  Of course, we had the hurricane hanging over us.  I was worried she might need a Vet during that time, so I called for an appointment.  The wonderful staff and Vets at Hidden Valley saw us immediately. Our vet was not there; however,  we saw a wonderful vet Dr. McCormac.
When she walked in the door, her exact words were, "so this is Madi the Miracle Cat of the Clinic".  She shook my hand and told me the Vet Techs and our Vet Dr. Szabo had told her so many wonderful things about Madi and her parents.  This made me feel so good. I had no idea Madi was the Miracle Cat of The clinic.
Anyway we talked about the most current chain of events and of course she had Madi's extensive records.  As she was giving Madi a once over, she asked, "how long has Madi had a heart murmur".  I told her we were here a month ago, there was no murmur.
She explained what I should hear and what I would hear. She passed me the stethoscope. I heard what she had described.
Then she listened to Madi's lungs...one was full of fluid....dear precious sweet Madi was in congestive heart failure.  She told me that comes on quickly with cats without many early warning symptoms.  The treatment for that is a med to reduce the fluid, it causes dehydration...and of course Madi was on Subqs to keep her from being dehydrated.
It was a double edge sword.  Obviously she could not recover from this and the treatment would have sooner than later had her gasping for air. In fact, not wanting to eat was a sign...given the choice to eat or take a breath Madi was choosing to breath.
Her Dad was at home preparing for the storm...I called him he came immediately to the clinic.  Dr. Mc said judging from what she could hear...Madi would not last long.
On September 13, Madi was not in any discomfort, she was not gasping for air.  It was our decision to let her go while she was not in pain or suffering.  
Madi was an itty bitty kitty with a GREAT BIG FUN LIFE full of adventures to places she never expected to go, doing things Cats should never do.  We thank you all for sharing your lives with us and including us in all your fun.
Blogging has become an addiction and I will continue to blog on 
under the name In My Mind's Eye, at this blog address 
and it is yet to be decided if there were be
guest appearance from the precious little Guardian Angel's blog.
Knowing Madi, she will be like the fog, tiptoeing in and out on itty bitty kitty paws when we least expect her. It is amazing how a 7.5 lb cat can occupy every square foot of a home.
As soon as Madi's is back home, we'll have an unveiling of her permanent Diva Throne.

I am a huge Alan Jackson fan...
Sissy's Song was written by Alan after the untimely passing of a family friend.
This chorus speaks to me each time I hear it....

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

My guardian Angel
Adorable

Diva

Independent

Soulful eyes

Our special Angel

Never EVER no NEVER forgotten



Run free baby girl....we love you two hours and a bunch Mom and Dad

  9. I'm so sorry about Madi... but I think your timing for her could not have been more perfect. She was on the edge, looking over at a short amount of time that was anything but quality time, and you spared her. Thank you so much for sharing her with us, and your relationship with her. We've been enriched by it.

  17. Oh dear, my wonderful neighbor friends Madi and mom- I am so very sorry to hear of Madi's passing. We are so sad here, and dad teared up a little, too, when he heard of this. Please know that we will miss dear Madi, though I know it's nearly a fraction of what you feel. Bless you all, and try to take comfort in knowing so many of us are right there with you in the pain and grief you are coping with. Goodbye, sweet neighbor.

  29. One of our favorite times of the day were when we would read comments on our blog and see sweet Madi. She always left us such fun and loving comments and would always say your "BFFF" When I signed into the Cat Blogosphere this morning (and I am not there every day) and read the news, my heart completely broke. I am just so sad...I don't have the words. My Baby Bobo also had congestive heart failure........my heart is so sad right now. I know my Angel Bobo is making sure Madi is ok over the Bridge. I wish I could be there to offer you comfort in person. I am so deeply, deeply sorry. Sending much love today and always from Cody and I. xoxoxo Your "BFFs"

  30. Cecilia and Bryan, we have been thinking about you so much since we heard the news. It is hard for us NOT to mourn the loss of such a wonderful friend. Madi was amazing - she had a kind heart and a loving soul. She never forgot her friends, always there to cheer them up, to send them a pretty card, and to just stop by and say hi. We are going to miss that Miracle Madi. We know your hearts are broken, as are ours, but we are here to lift your spirits high and help you feel better - it is what Madi would have done. Sending you many hugs and lots of love.

    Hugs and Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber and of course, Mom too

  33. I am so sorry your dear Madi has gone over the Rainbow Bridge. I don't know why but this was just news one never expects to read - yes, in your mind you know someday but your heart is just never ready. Dear sweet Madie - may you find an endless suppy of your favorite treats and your favorite food and all that you love at the other end of the Bridge. May you now be able to run and jump with an endless amount of energy.

  34. We are so sad to hear this news. Our moms eyes are leaking and she is having a hard time reading the screen. We always knew Madi was special so it is no surprise that she was known with such high esteem at your vet office too. That also speaks volumes for the care you all gave her this past year. Sweet Madi has met up with our Angel Nina and all her other friends at the Bridge now. We will miss her dearly and hope she reports from the Bridge once in a while. Our paws are crossed for Miss Cecilia and Mr. Bryan right now and we send warm hugs to comfort you.

    Yours,

We know many Cougars and friends were there to meet you at the Bridge, but we'd rather have you here with us. May you rest in peace knowing you are and always will be loved and remembered.

  40. We are so heartbroken we don't know what to say. Raz and Madi were such a great couple together and shared so many fun times. We can't imagine a world without that sweet little Diva in it. We have all had leaky eyes since we first heard the sad news. Madi was so full of life and changed our lives and the lives of so many others by brining such joy into them. We loved her so much. We're sending purrs and prayers to you. We know Angel Ellie was at the Bridge to welcome her to the Bridge version of the Crochety Cougars.

Madi didn't have to go on being more and more sick. It is a wrenching thing when our babies leave for the Bridge. It will be good when she is home again. Where she belongs.

She could not have been more loved or found a better place here on Earth !

I know the brightest star in heaven tonight will be you smiling down on your mom & dad. Godspeed my dear friend.

  87. Oh my! This is so sad. Even though I am a reader, not a fellow blogger, each time I read about another kitty going over the rainbow bridge I am devastated. I feel like I have lost one of my own cats. And there have been too many lately. Rest in peace, Madi. And hugs to your Mom. She needs them.

  89. I am crying all over again. I cannot imagine how you feel. What a beautiful poem, and what an amazing attitude you have. Madi touched so many of us... and you are right - her life was heaven on earth. You spoiled her (in every good way) and shared her love with all of us. All of my family is sending you love and hugs. I know that our Angels are welcoming Madi to heaven with lots of kisses and hugs.

  93. As I get my tears under control - so many things go through my mind. Madi was so special and a unique voice in the blogging community. We loved hearing about her exploits, the kitchen table, etc. As you might remember, I was quite taken with Madi's tail. It's funny because Ellie's tail is so much like Madi's tail that I think of her every time I see it. I know that's kind of silly - but I want you to know that my love of Madi and you isn't limited to the two days a week I stop by. I think about you both. And I was devastated to hear about her crossing. I took a day or so to try to pull myself together. We love you, Madi and we will NEVER EVER EVER forget our BFF.

  94. Goodness me, what a way to start the day: tears streaming down my face, so I can't even imagine what it must be like for you. So sorry to hear about Madi going over the rainbow bridge, although we know she will have the time of her life there. Thinking of you!

    Mara, Brom (and Mouse) and Miss Oswin from Northern Ireland want to give you all a very big hug, klem, and a wet nose. Lots of love!

  105. I hopped to you from KB's blog.A decision, a huge loss, and certainty that this was the best for your darling Madi. The massive empty space in a home, the memories, and then the knowledge that she was SO loved all her life with you both. Many hugs from another friend in blogland down under in New Zealand, with just 2 cats at our home now. XXX

    I have been thinking about you so much over the last few days remembering all the funny, amazing adventures we have shared throughout the years. Gosh, I just can't imagine Blogville without you. Sending so much love and support to your family.

    I sure hope you have found Angel Pip and are having a grand old time together. Run wild and free, sweet girl. XOXO

  111. Gosh...It has taken me until now to comment. I have been so tearful when I come and try to comment. I read your heartfelt words and I can feel your pain at the loss of Madi. Yes...we do know they are ill and that it will be soon...but it still seems so far away...until it isn't. And we have to do the last thing we want to do.
    Madi was wonderful. Her personality shone through your posts. I have LOVED Madi and will continue to do so.
    I KNOW Madi and Nellie are OTB and looking down at us as they drink catnip tea and think of grand adventures!
    I wish I was closer and could bring you cookie and casseroles and tea
    I send you Love, Hugs and Strength my friends
    Love and remembering all the good times

  113. Oh Cecilia. I am so sorry, I just learned this sad news. What a terrible loss, Madi was the greatest of kitty divas. Her northern Canadian kitty brother Oreo still soldiers on with 3 legs, because he gave one up to win a cancer battle - and also fighting the kidney disease fight. My heart breaks for you and I hope that your healing journey is smooth and full of peace and love. <3 Krista, Oreo and Chico from the Yukon

    1. Dear Krista...last night I saw your comment on my post of 9/17/18 about
      Madi's passing. I tried to send this to your email from some time ago but it bounced back. Thank you so very much for the lovely comment. I expect Madi found Jimmy and they are romping and stirring up trouble in heaven.
      Oreo is such a trooper and he knows he is loved. I see you have a new
      companion Chico too. Hugs Cecilia

  114. As Mom said in her email to you, Ms. Cecilia, Madi will ALWAYS be our BFFF!!!
    We've been off commenting on blogs due to the remodel, but wanted to make sure to leave a comment here. Madi was one of the special ones, and we're sure she was greeted by so many friends.
    Cam, Mags, and our mom
