Where do I start? You are my brother, my best friend, and my partner in crime and now you are gone. Mom tells me that I’ll see you in just 2 months time, but that is ages in our animal lives.
You came to me in August on Nane Nane Day in Tanzania. I will forever remember you as my Nane Nane Twiga (and it’s also extra special since eight is mom’s favorite number, clearly we were meant to be). When you arrived, I was the first to find you and boy were you ugly! But I loved you anyway.
I’ve had your back since the very first day and you’ve had mine as well, that’s why we make such a good team.
We do everything together, and you’ve taught me how to share. We’ve shared food:
We’ve shared a bed:
And we’ve shared clothes too:
You were there for me on my First Birthday when mom wasn’t even there.
You’ve kept me entertained
And best of all, you taught me how to love someone other than mom.
Everyone here already misses you, including Agatha, Eddie, and the Maasai. The Maasai is super excited to keep this photo of you two since he misses you so much.
Oh, and here’s a warning: America is really, really cold. You can’t even imagine how cold it is, even more cold than when it rains here in Mwanza. A tip to beat the cold, hide in the oven, but make sure that servant Colin knows you’re in there!
I miss you Twiga, more than I can put into words (or into barks or meows either). I’ll be there just as soon as I can and then we’ll conquer America just like we did Tanzania.
