Tortie Joins 4Head


As Tortie and 4Head were close since birth, they were inseparable as they grew up. 

Both loved to play and enjoyed wrestling like this until 4Head went to the Rainbow Bridge on 1st December 2007.




Yesterday, on the eve of EJ's birthday, Tortie joined 4Head.

They are together again.

Dearest EJ, my heart goes out to you. I'm sure Tortie's absence leaves a hole in your household and in your heart, but I can't imagine that anyone could have given him a happier life than you did. I hope everyone joins together tomorrow to celebrate your life -- Happy Birthday!

As a Mom myself, I cannot help but let the tears flow, the letting go is so hard. Dear EJ knowing Tortie has joined his brother at the Bridge and is finally running free and whole is a blessing, but missing his daily presence is going to take a bit longer to accept. We are so sorry to hear that Tortie is gone over the Bridge,but we also believe you will all be together again someday.

EJ,
So sorry to hear that Tortie passed. I hope you feel some sense of peace knowing that Tortie and 4Head are together again. I can't help but think how lucky both cats were to have you in their lives.
My thoughts are with you and the rest of the furry ones.
