My beautiful Keith, I can't believe you are gone. You fought so hard to stay with me but you let me know you could no longer fight the good fight. I truly believe that you felt you needed to be with Zipee at Rainbow Bridge. The two of you were so close I guess it made sense for you to follow him. For me, my heart is so broken and I am in so much despair losing both you and Zipee so close in time. My 'gentle soul' kitty who gave nothing but love to me and your brothers and sisters. You were the quiet one, the kitty who laid on his back to sleep, my 'Christmas kitty'who loved playing in Christmas wrappings, who loved playing in paper and plastic bags, who let Leelee bite you on the back but never fought back...only cried, your special little meow when you knew your dinner bowl was coming. Keith, I am empty without you, I miss being on the couch with you watching tv, snuggling up with you beside me in bed with Zipee on my pillow licking your head. Most of all I miss your gentle spirit whose love was felt all over our home. Without you and Zipee, our home just isn't the same. Your brothers and sisters miss you, they look for you every day and don't understand where you are. Everything is different without you, our little home will never be the same. I love you so much baby boy, so much. Please be okay, you and Zipee. You are no longer in pain, the disease is gone, you are healthy now which eases my mind. |
I will write more again soon. It's dinner time "at the zoo" so I need to go feed your brothers and sisters. I miss you and love you with every fiber of my body.
9/29/19: It's been over a year and a half that I lost you. I think of you every day and wish so much that you were still here with me. I miss you terribly but I'm sure you know how much. By now you also know that Ashe passed away suddenly on May 20th. You now have your other brother joining you there, it still hasn't fully registered that Ashe is gone, it's only been 4 months. I still think I see him sometimes...I miss his meow (miss yours too) and the way he talked. I pray that you are happy Keith and pain free. I pray that there truly is a bridge you are at, waiting for your brothers and sisters and me. I try so hard to keep faith in the unknown but I question now and then. I need to convince myself that I will see you, Zipee, Ashe, Bones, Ashley, and Dutchess again...and all of the fur babies I've had or known over my lifetime. I haven't made a memorial for Ashe yet on here and feel terribly quilty about that...he deserves to be on here with you, I've just had a hard time thinking of adding one more baby. I made a memorial garden for you, Zipee, Ashe, and Ashley...had beautiful stakes made and finally buried the remainder of your ashes there. It really is a beautiful little place, I think you would really like it. Need to go for now sweetheart...please be okay...run through fields in the sunshine without a worry or pain in the world. I love you with all my heart and soul and wish to God you were still here with me.
Zipee can fill you in on the details but I needed to tell you that we lost Jett on 11/18 after a short illness. I am devastated as you can imagine...that makes four of you in less than 2 years. It's almost more than my heart can handle. Please watch over her and take good care of her for me. One day I will see you all again and am looking forward to that day with lots of love in my heart. I love you sweetheart and miss you terribly.
