Today is Bunny's twelfth birthday.
She was born to a stray cat in the Animal Shelter--I was the first human to touch her.
Because she couldn't see, our relationship was one of soft voices and tender touches, deep and quiet. I remember the hours we spent together, taking trips to various veterinarians looking for solutions to her eye problems. Throughout her life, we have shared a deep and quiet bond.
I am going to miss her. I don't want to say it, but I know this is her last birthday, and as such, it is full of bittersweet memories.
Happy Birthday, Bunny. Thank you for sharing your life with us.
