Memorial for Dustbunny: For Lorrie and Family

This morning, my heart was saddened to learn that Dustbunny, Lorrie's beautifu beloved soulmate 16 year old cat now resides at the Rainbow Bridge.

After a long illness, Dustbunny passed on peacefully in her sleep, not awakening from her nap, curled up basking in the warmth of the stove after eating supper. As Lorrie writes, "Somewhere in her dreams she slipped away from her earthly prison and is now a beautiful sassy cat angel.

Dustbunny was an amazing kitty. Lorrie describes her intelligence as "startling for us humans." She playfully enjoyed flushing toilets, turning lights and ceiling fans on and off, turning on the TV using the remote, and able to open any cabinet or cupboard to hunt for a treat. She even was able to open the refrigerator door open. And even though she was spayed, her maternal instinct was so strong that when Lorrie rescued kittens, Dustbunny would come into milk and nurse and train the kittens.

A strong willed cat, Dustbunny was "sassy" and when she misbehaved, would frequently show her displeasure with her human parents when they tried to correct her. But just the sight of a spray bottle was sufficient for her to disappear in a flash.

Lorrie wrote, "For 16 years she was my sweet and loving companion and my online namesake. She was queen of our home and ruled it with an iron paw and tons of love. Good bye sweet angel. Watch for me someday up there and make sure you sass an angel once in a while"

Please join us in a prayer by leaving a comment for Lorrie and her family who are devastated by their loss. Dustbuny is once again restored to health and vigor as she waits for her human family at the Rainbow Bridge but will be sadly missed, forever.

Be ever so thankful that you had Dustbunny for as long as you did.
She resides with God's Angels now and will surely become an Angel too. While your loss is hurting very much right now, God will ease your pain in a while after you have time to grieve. I've also lost my best 4-legged friends and know one day God will re-unite us and that thought keeps me going.

I'm so very sorry Lorrie for your loss! Like Heather said, she is now one of God's Angels and you will be with her again one day. You were so very lucky to have her as long as you did. I recently lost my Dog, so I know very well the pain & heartbreak you are feeling. I'm very sorry Dustbunny has gone to heaven - The Rainbow Bridge, she's very, very beautiful! My thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless you & Dustbunny.

I will miss hearing about DustBunny's antics in the chat.

The good thing is that you get to keep all the Love... and she got to take it with her, too. That never dies. It's true when we lose a loved one, feline or canine or human or otherwise.

dustBunny lived a good long life, giving you lots of love and entertainment... wishing you & the family a healing heart, Lorrie. We know that DustBunny is just fine now.
