It is not surprising that several authors have laid claim to writing the "original" Rainbow Bridge poem. I discovered this fact several years ago and went on a Quest to discover the true origin of The Rainbow Bridge poem.
The Rainbow Bridge poem has comforted me on several occasions after losing one of my beloved cats, as I know it has done for others. It is hard to keep a dry eye, no matter how many times we have read it, because we all have one or more "Rainbow Kitties and Doggies" we envision there.

We may never learn who is the real author of The Rainbow Bridge, but one true thing rings clear: This sweet story will continue to bring peace and comfort to thousands of animal lovers through the ages to come. And I know in my heart that one-by-one, we will some day be reunited with our loved cats and dogs who have gone before.
