I put together a little video of Jet. It's not the best video ever, but it was very cathartic to me,

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Karen, I am absolutely bawling. You are wrong about one thing though, it IS the best video ever. I hope you cherish it always. Maybe Jet is cuddling with my Tara at the Bridge. I hope so. She loved other IGs.
Regards from Deb, Allie (6/1/07), and Riley (2/20/09)

Thanks, Deb. All IGs loved Jet. Every foster we had would end up cuddling with him. I'm sure he and Tara will be great friends!

Karen, I understand your sadness and hurt. With the loss of our Tony. No one understands better than when you have lost one special furbaby. My prayers and heart go out to both of you. Please tell Eric that he may even see Jett. I did after Tony was gone. It is their way of letting you know they are fine and okay. Tony's presence is still felt in our home at times and our cat meows on occasion. No, I did not believe in this until it happened to me. I still cry and we are coming up on a year with Tony being gone.
My heart felt sympathies go out to both of you. God bless you both.

Karen, I just saw this. I am so sorry but so glad that you had him in your life. I'm glad Jet visited Eric and let him know he was OK. He needed to say goodbye.

He also said he was sure he felt Jet in bed last night sleeping between us the way he liked to. I told him I think it was Jet's spirit visiting and letting him know he was OK.


Fig visited me twice immediately after she was gone. The last time she jumped up on the bed, nosed herself under the covers and cuddled up to me like she did every night. I could feel the warm velvet of her belly with my hand.

PS- The downside of the Candle page is that the candles only last for 48 hours. SO feel free to visit every couple of days for awhile and keep those candles burning for Jet!! <3

I brought Jet home today. His ashes are in a lovely wooden box currently resting on our mantel. His paw print and fur clippings are in a little velvet bag on top of the box. A nameplate is on its way to attach to the box with his name and the phrase "Our Little Man" on it. I think we both feel a little better having him back home.

One year ago today. Still missing our little man as much as ever. Sadly he has been joined by many of our friends from this site. I hope they are enjoying each other's company until we can see them again!
