At the Rainbow Bridge all angels are special, but this week, there's one star that shines brighter than all the others, sweet Angel Edina, our English queen!

Are you happy to be royalty this week dear angel Edina, and will all the angels be celebrating?

About time - no one is more qualified to be English Queen than me since I am actually British and I was a champion show cat!

It hasn't been all that long since you made your journey to the stars on October 5, 2017.

Are you happy being an angel?

Can you tell us about the Rainbow Bridge and what life is like as an angel?

We don't really know. There is a site called that has poems and stories about the Rainbow Bridge and a candle lighting ceremony for sick and bridge cats. I can't really top that - but it is about not being sick anymore and being free in spirit.

You were a very special Maine Coon girl, living to be 15 years old!  

Can you tell us about yourself and what your character and personality were like?

As a Maine Coon - I was large and in charge - as they say - rock star personality! The room would light up when I entered! I could give people the tail like you wouldn't believe :)

 I was a super athlete - climbing, ripping, running, counter surfing.

I LOVED parties and presents especially if there was wrapping paper and catnip!

I was also super loyal to my Mom who had me since I was 2.5 years old. I would stay with her when she was sick and no one else would-  even when I was sick myself. I would climb under the covers and check for monsters. I also went everywhere - I was all about riding shotgun in my cat bed. I went to Canada every other weekend for 7 years. I also went to Minnesota many times and even got to go to Florida once.

Also I am in the database under Maine Coons. I am in there as a breeding cat.There is a section for Methuselahs (cats who are 15 yrs or older). Mom was thinking about having me added but I would have had to be verified by two vets and I was very sick by that point.

How did you come to live in your nice home? Were you a kitten, or adopted later in life?

This is a complicated story! I was born at the Dotcom Cattery in Cornwall England (they are now in Canada). I was sold to Coonwyck Cattery in Indiana when I was four months old. While there I became a champion in CFA (cat shows) and had three kittens (Joe, Kaboom, and Ice Queen). We know that Ice Queen went to a cattery in Alaska and the others to a different cattery in Indiana. Mom never met my kittens.

When Mom's previous cat passed away in 2005, she started looking for a Maine Coon online. Her other cat was a mixed breed but everyone always thought she had some Maine Coon in her. Anyway, Mom found me for sale online and called up to reserve me. She drove to Indiana to pick me up. She found me cowering a corner bleeding on my back and tail. The cattery owner claimed that it was self inflicted and that I should stay there until I was better. Mom said "No Way" and put the cat carrier down - I went right into it and we were out of there. We drove to Grandma and Grandpa's in MN and their vet said that I was definitely bitten by another cat. I got healed up and went back to NJ with Mom and we were together ever since. If Mom ever went anywhere without me, I got really upset. One time I even stood on top of a door frame to protest!

Also - I have a Cousin named China Blue - who lives in MN. She is really grumpy and likes to play with ice cubes!

What made you a special girl, and your family misses the most about you?

Everything - I followed Mom around and helped her with everything for years and years. Mom most misses me being near her and looking at her with my wondering eyes. She also misses rubbing my soft silky fur.

You had two cat housemates, Dusty and John Denver.  How did you get along with them?

Were you friends, or did you just tolerate one another?

Definitely didn't care for them. They were invading MY house. I would whack Dusty on the head with an open paw and just side step JD if she tried to give me rubs. No one ever got hurt though. I did like the dog though - Ranger - I taught him about cats.

At the Rainbow Bridge, we know you spend your days frolicking in the golden grass fields, feasting on Heavenly delights, and playing angel games with all the other angels.

On earth, what did you like to do in a typical day?  Did you ever go outside?

I would stay up all night partying, counter surfing, and checking up on Mom.

Then I would watch birds, squirrels, and whatever was going on. I would sit on Mom's desk or the cat tree and help her do office stuff. If she was gone to work, I would sit by the door and wait for her to get home and play with me. I also did tons of traveling. I didn't go outside - I guess once - I sneaked out when Grandma and Grandpa were visiting and they found me hiding under the neighbor's deck. I was scared.

Can you share with us a pleasant memory your family has of you?

Mom thinks of me when I was a young cat racing around the house chasing plastic rings and climbing my post until I wore myself out.

At the Rainbow Bridge, everyone is happy and full of joy. What made you the most happy when you were here on earth?

Was there anything you didn't like?

Most happy - being with Mom. Least happy - being with Dusty lol.

You had such lovely long beautiful fur.  Did you have to have any special grooming to keep looking so lovely?

Actually not much. I didn't care much for brushing. I would just take care of it myself. Sometimes I would need baths, which I didn't like. I used to do a really funny thing - I would yank on the hair in between my toes - maybe it itched!

Angels are very wise. What words of wisdom do you have for us humans here on earth, so that we can be happy like all you angels?

Enjoy every minute of every day. Run, play, eat, hug, and be happy.

What do you miss most about your life here on earth?

And if you could send a message to your family here on earth, what would you like to say to them?

I love them and I am always watching over them.

What five words best describe you?

Silky, gorgeous, silver, curious, busy.

Thank you dear angel for visiting us from the stars this week. Anything else you would like to say to all your earthly friends?

Let's give a glowing welcome to our sweet angelic royalty this week, the ever so sweet.....


Thank you and lets party. Purrs, Queen Edina
