Will I See My Pet Again?

After your much loved pet dies, you may wonder if you will see your pet again. We all must search for answers, but here I share mine.

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude,

then animals are better off than a lot of humans.

~ James Herriot

 


To paraphrase a well-known anonymous quote, if there are no cats in heaven, then heaven is a place I do not want to be. Many people have pondered the question: Will I see my pet again? Each of us must search for our own answers, but I will share mine. It is not profound, but I believe it with all my heart.

Our pets grace our lives for a brief time to teach us about loving without condition and
letting go. After we die, I believe that we humans are surrounded by everything that we love. If I have loved animals in this life, it only makes sense that they will be with me after death. How can it be any other way? My Rainbow Bridge will be crowded and I look forward to the happy reunions.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small.
All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all.

Cecil Frances Alexander
