Gone to the Rainbow Bridge in 2012 at the age of 18.

Bandi lived in the apartment above mine, along with way too many cats, kittens, and small dogs. Every morning in warm weather she would jump off her balcony and go spend the day along the nearby river. In the afternoon she came home and waited for her owner to return.

Her owner moved away and took all her animals with her. Bandi returned, and her owner never looked for her. A neighbour and I fed and groomed her. After a few weeks we decided she should move in with me and my cats. I renamed her River Spirit and adopted her through a local shelter to make it legal. I took her to the vet for a checkup and spaying. Sadly, she was pregnant, so she had an abortion too, and I always wondered if it was doubly traumatic for her to lose her kittens.

Although River had always gotten along well with my cats outside, and had even protected them from other cats, when she moved in we had fireworks. My cats absolutely didn't want her in their home. After a few weeks everything settled down and everybody bonded. A couple of years later, when we all moved in with my partner, she was the first to adjust to her new home. We had many good years together.

Thank God, for people like you!


She was a beauty, I love hearing rescue stories that work out well.


She was beautiful, Patsy. Thank you for your story of how you got to adopt her and gave her a forever home for many years. 18 is a wonderful age, but it doesn't change the fact that it's always hard to say goodbye to our furry babies.
I still miss my last kitty boy Goofie, he was 16+ when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge September 2017.....he was so special!♥


Wow, 18, she lived a good long life, but it is still so sad when they leave us. Sounds like Brandi brought lots of joy to you Patsy. Thanks for sharing!
