Yet Another Version
Just this side of Heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge where animals go when they die. At the Bridge there are sunny meadows and shady dells where they can run and play together. There is plenty to eat and lots of soft places to take long naps.
Animals who were ill or old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are whole and strong again. Beloved pets are just as they are remembered in dreams and the feral are given the lives they should have had.
The animals are content, but many of them miss someone very special, someone who was left behind when they crossed the Bridge.
Then, one day, an animal stops in play and looks into the distance. A familiar figure has taken the first step in crossing the Bridge and must be met!
There is a pause in their journey to savor
joys of reunion, and then they cross the Rainbow Bridge together . . .
of the lady cat
and all the other beloved animals
who have crossed
the Bridge ahead of us.
