Prayer Request for Casey the Cat

From Terri:
My year and a half old female tuxedo cat, Casey, got out last Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2009 and has not returned home. We are heartbroken.
We have handed out some flyers and checked the shelters.
Casey was born on our deck and we took her in when she was about 7 months old. She loves to sneak out when we open the sliding glass doors but would usually return within a day or so would Today I was about to give up hope but then I came across your site. I very much believe in the power of the saints and especially I pray to St. Francis. St. Jude and St. Anthony. I will be also praying to St. Gertrude and to Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos to please guide Casey to us or us to Casey.

Please post this on your blog. Thank you so much for giving me hope.
Please keep Casey and all our missing pets in your prayers.

Prayer Request for Munster the Cat

From Brenda:
I found your blog online Prayers for our Pets and really enjoyed reading it. I have lost my black and brown tiger tabby cat Munster since 10/12/2009 from Laguna Niguel, California and would appreciate any prayers and positive energy you could offer. I found Munster, then a kitten, at a veterinarian in Jerusalem about 2.5 years ago while I was working there as a journalist. I brought him over from Israel to Orange County, CA a little over 2 months ago. He is an active indoor/outdoor cat and just disappeared one evening. One neighbor later told me that she saw him on a roof of a nearby home the night he disappeared. Another told me he saw him several streets down a few days later. I have searched high and low, checked with the shelters, posted fliers, tried the phone service, etc. I pray everyday for his safe return home.

Thank you for all of your prayers for animals and for your beautiful blog.



PS. I included a photo of Munster taken right before we left Jerusalem.
Please keep Munster and all our missing pets in your prayers.

Prayer Request for O'Malley (Aly the Cat)

From Clare:
THank you so much for your generous blog! May God bless the kindness you show to others through it! We too have lost our cat. He is a very new addition to our family and his name is O'Mally, but my 2-year old calls him "Aly the Cat". He is her cat because her old cat was recently hit by a car (he was a stray that wandered into our lives). O'Mally attached himself to my daughter, and he escaped from our screened-in porch this afternoon. I pray for a safe return. Thank you so much. God Bless you and Honey.
Please keep O'Malley (Aly) and all our missing pets in your daily prayers.

Betsy the Cat Has Died - Prayer Request for Betsy's Owner

Betsy sadly has died. Maryann sent me the following email. I hope she does not mind if I share her beautiful email with all of you who are an important part of our pet prayer apostolate:
Thank you so much for your prayers. We lost our beautiful Betsy this morning. There is a beautiful poem that I received from the owner of the pet cemetery where she is going to be laid to rest. It is so beautiful. I want to share it with you. Perhaps you could post it on your website. I feel it will bring comfort to many who have lost their beloved pets. It brought me comfort, and it is applicable to human loved ones as well, in my opinion. As there is an unknown author, I think there will be no problem with copyright. Here is the poem.

The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called "The Rainbow Bridge" because of its
many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow
Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and
valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved
pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is
always food and water and warm Spring
weather. Those old and frail animals are
young again. Those who have been maimed
are made whole again. They play all day with
each other. But there is only one thing missing.
They are not with their special person who
loved them on earth. So, each day, they run
and play until the day comes when one
suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose
twitches, the ears are up, the eyes are staring,
and this one runs from the group. You have
been seen. When you and your special friend
meet, you take him or her in your arms and
embrace. Your face is kissed again and again.
You look once more into the eyes of your
trusting pet. Then, you cross the Rainbow
Bridge together, never again to be separated.

Unknown Author

I have typed it exactly as it was given to me. The
owner of the pet cemetery is in a wheel chair and is
a very religious person. She and her brother run the
cemetery. She does not advertise at all, and my husband
somehow found out about it on line. Evidently, God
brought us to her. My beloved Betsy is going to be
laid to rest in a beautiful place on Saturday (weather
permitting) or Sunday if it rains. I am so very very
sad and my husband is heartbroken. This was his
little girl. Esther, she only turn 12 in April so this
was totally unexpected. I am crying so hard. My heart is
broken, but she died at home. We had an appointment for
her at the vets in the afternoon as she was doing so poorly,
but she didn't make it. By the way, we are in Rhode Island.
Thank you so much for your beautiful comforting website.
You are truly carrying out the Lord's work in allowing us grieving pet parents to share with each other.


Please keep Maryann and her husband in your prayers as they grieve for their beloved pet.

Prayer Request for Wizard the Dog

From Reneé:
Please pray for little Wizard, he is a Fox Terrier cross, we got him from Save-a-Pet about two weeks ago. He was doing well although a little scared on the first day, seeing as we have another dog as well as two cats. Since the day before yesterday he developed yummy problems and for some reason I get the feeling that he is scared to go outside. I assume that the tummy problems are due to stress but I'm watching him carefully and will take him to the vet if he is not better by tomorrow. Please pray that he will be okay because we want him in our family for many more years to come, I call him my honeymoon baby, seeing as we got him a week after our wedding. I love my little Wizard, and he is a wizard when it comes to being naughty! LOL.

Prayer Request for Morgan the Dog

Cindy has the following prayer request. Please keep her and the dog in question in your prayers:
I am a Catholic and I need someone to say a prayer for me and family. I recently became a volunteer for a great dane rescue who fosters great danes. We have received our first foster, and she has been with us for about 3 weeks. When I received my foster dane, she was very hyper and had separation anxiety, didn't know how to walk on a leash. Since having this dog, I have now gotten her over her separation anxiety plus she now is walking on a leash. I had a family who really needed and wished to adopt her, but I guess the rescue said no to this situation. The family that I had lined up to adopt her, had recently lost his wife due to leukemia, and the little girl really needed a companion. Well, on Thursday I received an e-mail that my foster had an adoptive family, not the family that I had suggested. Upon feeling let down, I went a head and lined up a place and time to exchange my rescue dog. The new adoptive mother, said that this was one of the best transactions that she had ever received, because of how I handled the situation. Then yesterday, the adoptive Mother called me and said that she couldn't handle my foster dog,and wanted me to take her back. I then e-mailed the rescue that I was going to pick my foster dog back up, plus try to call the president of the rescue. During this time, I didn't receive any type of interaction. Upon getting my foster dog back; which my family has fell in love with, we have decided it was a sign from God that she is meant to be with our family. Later in the night, the rescue called me and said that I shouldn't picked up Morgan, my foster dog, without contact from a board member. Now, I am a person that is extremely compassionate, plus I want to do right all the time. I am feeling so bad and upset with this situation. I also mentioned that we would like to adopt Morgan. So my prayer request is that you pray for us to be able to adopt Morgan. We love this dog, and already consider her to be a part of our family. I am praying to St. Roch for his help in this situation.

Thank you for our time and prayers.

you have made all living things
and you are even more wonderful
than the things you have made.
We thank you for giving us our pets
who are our friends
and who give us so much joy in life.

Bless this Pet.
May it give us joy and remind us of your power.
May we realize that
as our pets trust us to take care of them,
so we should trust you to take care of us,
and in taking care of them
we share in your love for all your creatures.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.


Blessing of an Animal

Almighty and generous Providence,
how great the variety of living things
you have put at our disposal!
You told our first parents:
"I give you all animals of the land" (Gn 1:30).
Some can be used as food,
or for labor or transportation,
but also for our companionship and recreation.

Bless this Animal.
May it carry out the function it has been given
and may it aid us to think of you its Creator
and give praise and thanks to your forever.
We ask this in the Name of Jesus our Lord.
