remembering Bert

Remember Bert? 

I rescued Bert back in 2015 when I was helping with a large TNR effort in a mobile home community.  Bert was trapped an unneutered, friendly boy wearing an old flea collar. No one in the neighborhood claimed him so I worked on getting him healthy and learning to once again trust humans.

While working with him, I feel hard for him. I loved him so much.

Bert was such a gentle, wise soul with so much love to offer.

Once he was healthy, I found him his purrfect forever home.

I received word yesterday from his human that he crossed the rainbow bridge after a courageous fight with cancer. She says he was such a gift to her and her family. He brought so much joy, love, and laughs to everyone. Such a special boy. I'm grateful for the update as I think about him often.

Be free Bert - I so look forward to more of your delightful tummy rubs when I see you again.



  1. We're so sorry to hear about dear Bert, he will always be a special soul.

  2. Oh dear I am so sorry to hear about Bert, but so thankful he had a loving family who adored him and gave him his best life!

  3. Rest In Peace, Angel Bert.
    Your job on Earth was to spread love, and you did an excellent job.

  4. You and his furever family gave Bert the best life, and he gave you love. He is off on a new adventure, never to be forgotten.

  5. I should remember him. But then, that was when I had my heart surgery and I couldn't do anything at the computer for weeks. I am truly sorry. I know, as do the rest of us what an awful thing it is when our cherished family members pass..

  6. I remember Bert and him going to his new home. Sad he is gone.

  7. Oh no, Bless your heart. We don't remember Bert, but what a story. You obviously have so much love in your heart is all we can say. We're so sorry to read about this poor soul.
