Keisha Labesha
My Keish Lorraine
my sweet baby
I will miss you forever!

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.

Oh Im so sorry to hear about your loss! :( I too have my kitty cat Marius, I've had him for almost 16 years now too! I love him to pieces, and as he gets older and frail, I worry about the day he finally leaves me. I dont care what anyone says, pets are just like a member of the family, and their death is very real and sad! Big hug from me!

SO sorry! You have lost two wonderful pet family members this year and that just sucks. Hang in there!
