The legend of Frodo the Cat begins sometime in
late July 1987, when he was born.
He had a humble beginning, being found in a cardboard box in a back
along with an unknown number of siblings. He was taken to the local vet
for possible adoption soon thereafter.
On September 3rd 1987, a human male named Darren Enns decided that it was
time to devote his life to the service of cats. Frodo the Cat and
Darren the Human became instant friends that day, and after Darren
payed the appropriate adoption
fees, Frodo's new life began.
Frodo passed away on May 2nd 2000, on a warm
spring day. He was 13 years old, and loved very much.
He will be missed dearly. Darren is a Christian, and as such is
confident of Heaven one day.
He hopes that the Lord will see fit to re-unite him with Frodo once he
Just this side of
heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to some-
one here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows
and hills for all our special friends so they can run and
play together. There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine
and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health
and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong
again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times
gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small
thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be
left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when
one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are
intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he begins to run
from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him
faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend
finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to
be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your
hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more
into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your
life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...

Here are the things
that I will miss about Frodo:
- His curiosity
- Laying my my
lap or chest
- Meowing to
- Running to the
door to greet me
- His sudden
bursts of running energy
- Putting up
with my prodding, annoying, and playing
- His love and
affection for me!
Here are some
meow's from Frodo himself:
