Do Roosters Cross the Rainbow Bridge?

My sweet Pat died today. He was the best rooster ever, even though he would occasionally bite.

He hadn’t been looking good. He was panting a lot, like he couldn’t get enough air. And his comb was pale.

But at least I can say I gave him every chance to recover. His life was good, even if it was too short.

We sat together sometimes, and I would sing to him. He liked Train. He didn’t care for Taylor Swift.

REO Speedwagon’s “I Can’t Fight this Feeling” was our song.

I’m going to miss that rooster.
