Will I See My Pet Again?

After your beloved 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. Will Rogers said this: "If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went."


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 complicated or profound, but I believe it with all my heart.

Our pets are spiritual perfection who grace our lives for a brief time. They show us the meaning of unconditional love, but
animals can teach us many lessons--if we learn to listen to the messages.


After we die, I believe we 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 in the next. How can it be any other way? My Rainbow Bridge will be crowded and I look forward to the happy reunions.


What if I am wrong and animals are not immortal? My beliefs comfort me, in the here and now, and there is nothing wrong with that.

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

The Lord God made them all.
