Rainbow Bridge & Grief

Happy Holidays 2023 from the Zee & Zoey Gang

Meowy Cat-Mas from the whole Zee/Zoey gang!

From all of us at Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles, we wish you the happiest of holidays and wishes for a beautiful, safe, and kind New Year. We also want to take the time to remember all the precious angels who are not with us for the holidays but are forever in our hearts. We miss every one of them every day, but the holidays can be especially difficult without them. For anyone who has lost a pet, our hearts go out to you with love and compassion.

Miss my precious angels so very much.

Take care, everyone.

Love from Deb, Dan, Zoey, Mia, Peanut, Rolz, Kizmet, Jazmine, Shadow, and angels Zee, Mr. Jazz and Harley.

Thanks, and Winners of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Personalized Pet Portraits

My beautiful Jazz. R.I.P. sweet boy.

On behalf of Mr. Jazz, my beloved angel cat who inspired Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day, I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in the day this past August 28. It’s always bittersweet, as we wish we never had to say goodbye to any of our pets. But I’m always amazed and inspired by the overflowing of love and compassion shown on this day. My heart swells with gratitude for all the lovely memories we have of those pets we have loved and lost. Read more

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2023 Blog Hop and Custom Memorial Pet Portrait Giveaway

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day logo created by Deborah Barnes of Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles / Purr Prints of the Heart.

For those who have loved and lost a beloved pet, we often choose to commemorate the pet’s memory with something of special significance, such as wind-chimes, marker stones, pet memorial jewelry, tribute boxes, and more. For Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day this year, and in honor of the 10-year passing of my beloved angel cat, Mr. Jazz (the inspiration for the day), I thought I would focus on that aspect by featuring a giveaway, courtesy of a lovely shop I found on Etsy called Pleasant Glen Products, which specializes in personalized, custom-created pet memorial portraits.

Classic Zee for Sunday and a Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Reminder

Sunday can be a day for quiet reflection. And with Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day coming upon us this August 28, I think that’s why my mind has been thinking of my precious angel, Zee, all the more. He’s been gone for well over a year but remains strong in my heart. This picture of him is classic Zee. Happy and content with those beautiful, kind eyes.

I hope everyone has a lovely day and I also want to share with you that this Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day I’ll be featuring a poignant, custom-created giveaway opportunity from a talented artist from Etsy. If you have an angel pet, you’d like to remember, I hope you’ll stop by for details on how to enter.

Take care – Deb


The Missing You, One Year Anniversary of Saying Goodbye to Zee

It’s nearly impossible to believe our precious Zee has been gone a full year. He brought so much love, light, and joy to our lives and the hole in our hearts remains deep. Since I was blessed that he didn’t mind being snuggled or held, I’ve created a collage of some of my favorite pictures with him to honor his passing.

Goodbye sweet Zee, forever and always in my heart.

Zee: September 7, 2005 – March 18, 2022.
