Primitive Angel Of Cats Doll!

 

"Rein Beau"

 

Everything has it's angels, even cats.
Please meet Rein Beau.... the Angel Of Cats.

Rein Beau is a sweet angel. She has a special job to do. As her name Rein suggests, she 'guides' kitties somewhere.
Rein Beau's job is to take the little kitties that "don't make it" to a special place.
She appears before them and takes them on their journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
Once the kitties are there, they wait for the day that they can be reunited with their owners. Then they go to heaven together.

The writer of The Rainbow Bridge Story is unknown, but I'm sure that all pet owners appreciate the story. In case you've never read it before, here it is.
Again, the writer of the story of the Rainbow Bridge is unknown.

The Rainbow Bridge Story

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of 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 had 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, loved ones who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks off into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers.
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.

It's a sad job to do, but no one does it with more love than Rein Beau. She's the special cat angel who guides the cats and kittens to the bridge, to wait for their owners.

Whenever there are kitties in trouble, only the kitties can see the 29 inch tall figure standing off to the side. If they are to go on their journey with Rein Beau, they will begin to hear the tinkle of the kitty wind chimes that hangs down the front of her dress by a piece of twine.
It's a soothing sound that takes away all their fears. It's the sound of a sweet lullaby.
The closed eyes of the wooden wind chimes kitty makes all the troubled, sad kitties smile, as they're lulled to sleep.

Rein Beau is wearing a stained white cotton dress that has been generously aged. She's wearing a vintage baby gown that has also been aged. Rein Beau's wearing pantaloons, as well.

A crocheted doily serves as her collar.

 

Rein Beau's face, hands, tail, and feet have been painted black and aged. She has bright cat eyes, a sculpted nose, and black pom-poms are used for a muzzle.

You can see the beautiful feather wings that adorn Rein Beau's shoulders. And just above her head is her halo. It's made of gold balls and wire. Her halo is used as a way to attract the kitty's attention, right when they hear the song of her wind chimes. They stare at the gold balls intently.

They will also play with the ivory colored beads that Rein Beau wears. Under most circumstances kitties are not allowed to play with strands of beads.......but this time they can.

Once they have been distracted, they begin to hear the wind chimes and prepare for their journey.....to The Rainbow Bridge.

And in the left hand of Rein Beau is a wooden heart with a tin heart in the middle.
It's the ultimate symbol of love that Rein Beau has for all the cats.

And when they finally get to The Rainbow Bridge, they can join the Heavenly Cat Choir and sing to their heart's content!

You'll notice that Rein Beau is carrying a small twig basket. There's a troubled kitty sitting in it.......bless her heart, she 'didn't make it' and she's being escorted to the Rainbow Bridge. She's content with the beautiful sounds of the wind chimes and the gentle, reassuring hum of Rein Beau.

And the most special part of Rein Beau is that she comes with a glass amber dram bottle. It can be used for a few hairs, a baby tooth, a claw shedding, or perhaps the treasured ashes of the dearly departed, for safe keeping.
If some sort of 'memory item' is placed inside the bottle, you can close your eyes and almost envision the moment when Rein Beau made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge with your own loved one.

Wouldn't you love to bring Rein Beau into your home?
And just think, every time you hear her little wind chimes tinkle, you'll know she's escorting another troubled kitty to the Rainbow Bridge with love and comfort.....
