Mesha and Sasha, the 2 siamese who owned Becky
by Becky Barnes
My two little siamse girls were born on Aug. 14, 1995, a day after my birthday. I brought them home in Sept. a year after the loss of my 24 year old son. I had always had siamese and had one at that time ( Misty). The girls were now my only children. They were spoiled with love and gave me so much love in return. we slept together and each had their place to sleep on me. They met me at the door, I could never sit alone, no clue when they got on me but that was the way we loved it. They were like velcro. Mesah and Shsah were as differnt as day and night, Sasha would let me dress her up while Mesha liked to sleep under the covers. They became sick and for 2 years I knew they had kidney disease. Of the two Sasha was the wrost. SO when Mesha became sick I was in shock, on Sat. evening she acted strange and believe she found her place to go to kitty heaven. She chose a chair in the living room that she never got in. I stayed up all night with her. We went to the vet on Mon. Dec. 5, 2011 and her temp was very low, they put her on a heating blanket until the vet arrived. I am sure everyone knew I was there as the tears flew but my little girl was not in pain, but I was. It was very hard but I did have Sasha, until she kept going to the chair in the living room. That picture is still in my mind. On Thurs. Sasha no longer would eat, the samething her sister did and now she stayed in the chair. Fri.Jan.6, 2012 I took her to the vet and she joined her sister in kitty heaven. I had Mesah for 16 years, 3 months, I had Sasha for 16 years 4 months, yes 31 days from each other. They both were cremated and I plan to put them together with Misty (age 15)the other siamese who I lost in 2003. My life is so empty with them gone. But as the vet gave them the shots I kissed each, told them I loved them and to go be with Max, my son. I know he welcomed them with both arms' as he was an animal lover. Instead of flowers we ask for donations be make to the SPCA as we tryed to do what he would have wanted. I am not siamese less and hte it, but pray one will find me soon. I don't find any in the paper as once I did. Have tryed the Siamese Rescue but they are oldre who need good loving homes but I need a bay to spoil the way I want. I miss my girls everyday. Once you have a siamese you never want another cat, but siamese arnt' cat's, at least mine wern't. they were always my liitle girls as I always had females. If you have a siamese please love it and enjoy every minute with it. They are so beautiful, loving, fun, they talk to you etc.They are your family and too loose one or two as I did was so very painful and sad Rest in peace Mesah and Sasha. I love you both and miss you much.
