I had to say goodbye to my sweet sweet baby last Thursday. Keisha was going to turn her "SWEET 16" this September. I was there the day she was born and distinctly remember her unique face markings when she came out into the world. I knew right then that I would be keeping her. We have been together ever since--through thick and thin. Keisha leaves my side with a few secrets that will probably never be told. I feel like a part of me died right along with her. I want her back so bad.
Today, I said goodbye to her "tree". It went to a home with a 2 year old kitty with claws (you need claws to get to the very top.) It was her place of solace. . .from all of our other pets. A place where no one else could go, but her. Keisha was about 2 when she got her tree. It was much more difficult than I thought it would be. . . watching the tree leave in the back of a pick-up truck. . . but I know that little kitty will just love it! Going to a new home to have a new life and a new family to really appreciate just how "cool" this tree really is.
I will probably let my secrets rest in peace now. . .with my Keisha. But I will always hold her close to my heart and share the stories that bring all the wonderful moments she brought to me back to life.
