ABOUT RAINBOW BRIDGE REMEMBRANCE DAY:
This special day was created by Deborah Barnes – author, award winning blogger, and cat advocate in tribute to her cat, Mr. Jazz, who she had to say goodbye to on August 28, 2013. She shared the journey of letting him go in her most recent book, “Purr Prints of – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond,” a warm and heartfelt book that is written in the wise and comforting voice of Mr. Jazz himself as he shares his life and death journey to offer guidance and understanding through a cat’s perspective as to why sometimes letting a pet go can be the greatest gift you give them.
On behalf of Deb Barnes, Purr Prints of the Heart, and the Zee/Zoey Gang – thank you all for your support.

Deborah Barnes currently resides in the tropical paradise of South Florida and is the author of the book, The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey– A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary, that was inspired by the relationship she shared with her family of seven cats and lessons learned from them after a life changing event in 2009. She is also the creator and author of the popular blog, Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection, that not only continues to follow the everyday journey she shares with her cats, but covers topics from the humorous behaviors of cats to very serious subjects on the misconceptions of feral cats and the critical need to create public awareness on pet responsibility. All of Deborah’s venues – from books, to blogs, to website are done with her signature style of combining stunning photographs with custom artwork to give the reader not only a literary work, but a visual treat of unique style and craft.
While her first work was not published until 2011, Deborah has a background in marketing and has been writing for over 20 years in various capacities. Her current circle of works has brought her to where she is today – a serious cat advocate and Secretary of the newly created Pawsitively Humane Nonprofit organization of Miami, Florida, whose mission is to create public awareness and reduce the numbers of animals on the streets and in shelters through an extensive educational campaign.
Her efforts to educate mainstream society on the issues of cat overpopulation have led her to conduct critically acclaimed interviews with Jackson Galaxy, Hollywood Cat Behaviorist and author of Cat Daddy and star of My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet, Karn Meyers of FixNation Los Angeles, and Steve Dale, multi-award winning pet expert. She has also worked instrumentally with the Alley Cat Allies organization and Vox Felina and has made several video documentaries about the misconceptions of feral cats and the importance of TNR programs. Her most recent series of interviews have been about the abandoned cats in Japan as an aftermath of the devastating tsunami/earthquake/nuclear disasters of last year and she has been integral to spearheading the efforts of saving the outdoor cats that were once safely and peacefully residing on the Loews Orlando Universal resort properties that has garnered national news due to the inhumane and cruel removal of them from the premises.
