  5. Oh, my dear precious sweet Nellie....I can't see thru all the tears here, nor can I write as eloquently as those above me....but my heart misses you so much already. I have been dreading the day when I would see this...all my six cats jumped off the bed and out of the room after I scared them with my screams and crying. I feel like you were one of mine. I have loved you over a decade.
    I hope you are meeting my sweeties who are already there--Bear, Candy, Pinkie, Midnight, Callie, Snowy, Dusty, and Lightning. You must have a really big family of friends with you. God bless you....Good Friday: god took you home with Him, the purrfect ending to your perfect life. I love you. It hurts so much...

  7. My darling Nellie, Queen of Everything, You were and are and always will be the most glorious of LadyCats, and I will always love you. There's a big ripple in the Force tonight but it's made of love and wonderful memories and gratitude for the many years you allowed your Mommy to share you with us. We know she is going to be very sad for quite a long time; we hope she will find comfort in the love and warm thoughts coming her way from every direction. Much love, Spitty and the Human

  8. Oh Nellie! Sweet, sweet Nellie Bellie! We understand, but that does not mean that we are sad. And we can imagine the hugeness of the sadness your Mom is feeling. You were one of our most special friends and we will miss you so, so much. We are sure that our Ikkyu, Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan, as well as sweet Trav, will be welcoming you at the Bridge, along with all the others who have gone before us. Thank you for all the gifts. We will always remember you, Queen Penelope.

  10. Oh sweet Nellie, I'd been feeling nudges from Merlin all day and something made me check my email at 4:00 am. Even though, we knew the time was near, you knew exactly the right time to go. For a tiny gal, you're left a huge hole that will heal and a bigger legacy that will endure. What a welcoming committee! The sound of cheering is deafening but for now there are tears and grieving. Big hug to mum Barb on the healing journey ahead. As hard as it was over the past couple years, you did right by Nellie. xoxox Layla, Merlin and fursibs.

  14. Dearest Nellie, we are so glad you are at peace now, and happy with all your ones who've gone before. But losing you hurts, and our mom is very sad and teary eyed now. And your mom - we send strong purrs and pawhugs in her time of mourning. We were privileged to know you, Your Majesty.

  16. Darling Nellie, I am so sorry that you have gone to the Bridge. I am happy for you though that you are feeling young and fit again and have been re-united with so many friends. I will miss you dearly but will see you again soon. You will always be Queen of my heart. Hugs and purrs to your mum, Barb and love always to you.❤️❤️❤️

  17. Sweet Angel Nellie.....I can at last fold you in my wings and hug you here at the Bridge. All of us welcome you with the love you've ALWAYS had from us. My Mom wants your Mom to know she sends special hugs - saying goodbye is just moving from one "page" the next we know but it's still VERY VERY hard. You will always be the Queen of everyone's heart sweet girl.....special from the first day to the last.

  18. I am happy you are no longer feeling pain, and that in spirit you get to see all of your friends, but my heart aches for your people who will not have you with them every day. Those left behind ache for what was, but hopefully the good memories start to dull that pain in time, and spirit visits help :) I hope you have a wonderful party at the bridge on your birthday

  26. Nellie Bellie, my dearest treasured furriend, I am so deeply saddened that you have gone from us, though I know you are no longer hurting and now you can run with all of the furriends who were waiting for you. I can imagine the rush to greet you! Darling girl, you will ALWAYS be the Queen of my heart. NO one can take your place. All of us here still on this side of the Bridge will take care of your mommy for you darling. And I know you took my love with you as you flew away on those soft soft wings. Thank you for being my furriend, my best furriend, and thank you for all your gifts to us. They were each one treasures. All my love darling girl. Purrs and snuggles to your mommy Barb. xoxo ♥

  29. Oh my, Nellie darling, my dear Nellie. I am bereft and weep at the news of your travelling across the rainbow bridge. You will be forever my Queen, a figure to look to, a happy visitor to my palace. I so wish we could have met in this life, I really do. I must now wait till I too cross that bridge before I can come before thee, and share great tales, and a nip mouse or two. Travel well my dear friend, and enjoy the pleasures and fine company that awaits your new life, for surely it does. Soft and gentle purrs
    Humbly, Erin

  45. We love you so, so much, our dearest, sweetest Nellie, and are sad that it was your time to go to the Bridge. Our hearts ache, and our eyes are teary with the knowledge that you are now there, and not here with us. All of that is tempered by the report we got from Moosey about the celebration of your arrival. We hear it was fit for a Queen. And rightly so, since you ARE Queen Penelope! We are glad so many of your friends who went before were there to greet you. What fun you will have together, until the day when we are all reunited. Thank you for being an amazing friend to us. Thank you for your love and positive energy that have had such a profound influence on us. And thank you for being you, Nellie Bellie.

    We are sending so much love and purrs and prayers to your Mommy as we know she misses you with all of her heart. Please tell her to let us know if she needs anything, okay?

Mom is feeling so sad at this moment, she has lost her words. We have lost too many friends in the last couple of months and we looked forward to seeing you and receiving your gifts. Please say, "howdy" to our sis Fiona. You were so kind to list her among your friends. You will remain in our hearts ALWAYS!

We know that Nellie left at exactly the right time because a Queen always knows when it is time to say good-bye.Thank you for counting our Isadora as a friend; she will surely be there to greet and surround your girl with love as will Leo , Tulip, Masala, Allegra and Lewis. Each of them will be as happy as the next to ensure Nellie is safe and loved upon her arrival.Rest in peace Nellie Bellie , you were loved by many.Sending you lots of love and hugs , Barb.

  69. I am so sorry for your loss. May it merely be temporary and not be too awfully long before you will be both spending all of eternity together in our Heavenly Father's Kingdom of Heaven. Now, I cannot say, "Thus saith the Lord," about this as I can other things, but I cannot imagine Heaven being nearly as joyous without our beloved pets being there with us.

  87. We did not know you well sweet Nellie , but we loved your sweet little meezer self from afar. And we know that you are only gone from this mortal world. You laid down your weary little body and let your vibrant, eternal life force join all those who have gone before now to be a part of the vast universe . We know it is only so long for now and we will all meet again at a place where life's energy knows no end. We lost our little meezer boy at age17 at the end of March. You two would be quite a pair. He'll be at the bridge to greet you. He'll love you so.

  88. Oh Nellie, our hearts are terribly broken. Not for you, because as you say you're happy and pain free and dancing, how joyous!

  100. Miss Nellie, we came to know you late but we loved you all the more. We are both happy and sad and our heart hurts. We are happy you are free from pain and are romping in heaven with your buddies. I'm sure Sammy Kimmel and Easy were there to greet you when you arrived. We are sad because we will miss reading of your exploits and most recent gifts. But part of love is allowing yourself to be brokenhearted and we are better kitties and bloggers for knowing you. Love to you and purrs, prayers and pawpats for your mommy who misses you so much.
    Love, Toby, Simon, BobbieSue, PeggySue, MerryBelle, and Momma Sabina

  101. Oh Nellie... I'm simply heartbroken to hear you've crossed the bridge, even though I do understand that it was your time, and for that reason, for the best. But still, it's hard. You are like part of the family for so many of us cats. Like a sister. And a best friend.

    I bet Nissy was so pleased to see you up in Heaven. Has he shown you the best of the Heavenly nip fields yet? I'm bettin' he knows where every single one is. And I'm bettin' that you and he will take great joy in runnin' through those nip fields, chasin' butterflies, and nappin' in warm sunpuddles afterwards.

    Love and purrs always,
    Seville

  104. Dearest Nellie, we've waited to comment because we don't want to believe that you're really gone. We can't imagine not seeing new photos of you or following your adventures. We know you're alive in our hearts. Mom says good morning to you every morning when she sees your magnet on our refrigerator. We love you and always will.

    ((((hugs))) and purrs to your Mom. We know the hurt must be unbearable but we know you are still there with her and will visit her when she least expects it.

    Love,
    The Florida Furkids and Mom Sharon

  107. Another angel awaits by the bridge.... being a friend of Merlin, I am sure you two are busy getting to know each other better. I imagine he is talking your ears off, but you smile, and listen. Tell him I said hi.
    My condolences to your human family who I am sure miss you terribly.
    Run, play and bask in the comfort of the rainbow....!

  113. Though you are no longer in pain, Nellie, those who love you will feel it. The pain of parting is always strong, even if those parted will meet again. Godspeed, Nellie, and God bless you.

  114. We know it was your time to leave Nellie but we didn't want you to go. We still had spring planting in the veggie garden for you to supervise but you chose the time and we are blessed to have called you friend. Mom and dad are delighted they got to see you one last time on their way through Vancouver on Wednesday. You were the sweet lovable Nellie they remember from last year. A little more tired but a sweet one for sure. We all will never forget you Nellie.

    Love,
    Shoko and Kali

  120. Dear Barb, I know you will post again when you are ready, but I want to send you soooooooo many good thoughts and hopes that you know how much we cared for and loved Nellie . . . and of course, that extends to you too, since you gave Sweet, Naughty Nellie her voice. I hope you are gradually feeling a bit better as days pass, and as the happy memories of Nellie begin to surface through your sadness. She was a wonderful Lady and so are you. XOXOXO Spitty and the Human

  122. Thanks for visiting me, Miss Barb. I know it is still a hard time for you but it made me purr a lot to see you tonight. We think that JoJo and Kozmo might be back with their Daddy (?) so we think you might not have a furry friend living with you right now, though we know you have LOADS of furry furiends all over the place. I wish I could teleport up there and visit, but the truth is I'd probably put the bitey on you, ha ha meow. I take my membership in the Cat from Hell Club very seriously. Nellie taught me good--though I must say I think I had some natural talent in that area. Love you lots, Spitty the Kitty
