This morning I thought it would be a good time to blog more about our communications with Laura that we had done last Saturday 16 November. It was quite a good day as it was also the date that my cat Totoro went to the Bridge. Lately quite a number of little kitties had gone to the bridge and there is a lot of sadness all around. It makes me smile when I think of him in the bridge with his new job and it comforts us here a great deal as well.
This was the picture that I had sent Laura for her blog and today it appears there as well. But I thought I would write it down here as I also want to blog about my irrepressible Tanaka and what he had to say about Toro and all this :)
Laura had asked him if he came to visit us. He had this to say:
Mom I want you to know here in heaven it is like a comfortable room filled with pillows and tunnels to hide and take me to other places.
The tunnels take me to places where I can see cats that need homes. I match the cats up with people. I try to make sure I give strong people difficult cats and frail people easy cats.
Mom I want to thank you for all that you have done for me. I know that watching me get more sick was hard on you. I always felt loved in your compassionate eyes. Mom, thank you.”
Toro also told us this when we were discussing Ms Akira: Can you tell my mom that I will help and there is a woman here that makes special tea and she says she will make tea to help Akira. She says she can heal with her tea recipes. (Hmmm I wonder who this is!)
I guess Toro does in heaven what I try do on earth :) except I do not send them to homes. I just make sure they have good food regularly and get them help from the vet in case of emergencies and the like :) I would like to thank my cat Toro for doing the difficult job of finding them homes.
I know Toro is not in his body because he flies too fast for me to catch him but if he is helping animals find homes will you tell him not to bring any cats here cause my mom is a strong person but we are trying to figure this out and I don't want to get confused.
Tell Toro that when I am trying to be nice to help me and if I stray tell him to touch my tail and then I will remember. Sometime he touches my mom's hair. Mom we all love you. Mom you're the best and we understand you. This just got us to all understand each other.

Of course our issues are not over yet. we are just trying to figure it all out (just like Tanaka said). But I see this as something that is worthwhile doing. I guess I did get difficult cats :) but I would not trade them for anything.
