I am sorry for your loss in one respect, Still Waters.
But what you wrote is simply amazing and it is good to post it! What an interesting tale after your dear cat's passing.
It sounds "too good to be true", but from what I learned when my dog passed, I know it IS true. They are indeed, well and happy and don't forget loved ones still living on Earth. Now they are Souls, as they always were and always will be, not just cats and dogs. It is a world of difference.
I know your story will bring great comfort and hope to those who are bereaved of dear animal companions.
