Sammy


Our sweet cat, Sammy passed away today. We don't know what happened, Josh just found him at about 7:30 this morning. He called me at work and told me he needed me to come home ASAP, so the nurse told me to go home. Josh had me scared with the tone of his voice and he told me not to talk to anyone until I got home. I came in the door and Josh was sobbing and he told me Sammy had died. I went down to see him where Josh found him and we just cried. He is my baby and is such a sweet cat with a spunky personality. My mom and dad came down to help us with him since neither one of us could pick him up. My dad brought a box and a blanket to wrap him in. Once my dad got him in the box, I went to say my "see ya later's" to Sammy. He looks like he was just playing with something and fell asleep.
I last saw him at 4:17 this morning when he woke me up by scratching on the heat vent in our bedroom like he has done a lot. I was irritated with him and was thinking of something I could throw at him because I had to get up in 15 minutes and my sleep is very important. When I got up at 4:30 am to take the dogs out and feed the cats before I got ready for work, I didn't see him. I thought it was weird but I didn't have time to look for him, I just thought he was asleep somewhere.

Elizabeth and DJ always wanted to go to our house to see Sammy, or Yammy as DJ called him, when we lived in Sandy. Elizabeth LOVED him. She can't have a cat because her mom is allergic to them so I told her Sammy could be her cat but he lived at our house.
He was such a lovey cat, and was into everything. We will miss him so much. It's taken awhile for it to really hit me that he's gone and now our house feels weird, we just aren't complete anymore. We will miss his BIG blue eyes, and his motor of a purrer, seriously, it was loud. I'm going to miss him waking me up in the middle of the night sitting by my head, purring in my ear, waiting for some midnight love. I'm going to miss hearing him cry for a treat when I give the dogs a bone and just about tripping over him on my way downstairs to give him his treat. I'm going to miss his kitty kisses, he was good at it. Meow will be lonely now, she doesn't have her little brother to fight with and to love anymore. Wrinkles will miss playing with him, she loves to jump at him wanting him to play with her and nibbling on his back. Ringo will miss Sammy waking him up in the middle of the night wanting some love, too. Ringo always responded back with a growl.
We love you so much Sammy, Yammy, Yammer, Sammy Sammersons, Samson and everything else we called you. I know you'll stay with us. Keep your brothers and sister company, they will miss you.

We are so sorry for you and Josh. It is the hardest thing in the world to lose an animal. He was such an adorable cat and looked so much like his mama. You can find comfort in the fact that you know he had the happiest home a kitty could hope for and was so very loved. He didn't grow old and feeble and was not sick or suffering. He just died playful and happy. That is one thing that bring me comfort when I think about his mommy, Jasmine.

It is the strangest thing to just wake up and find them gone. You will miss him more and more throughout the next few days. I still find myself sad and missing Jasmine just out of the blue. Her little red "baby" is still in the closet. Eventually it will get easier and he will always hold a special place in all of our hearts.

I loved coming and seeing Sammy because he reminded me so much of Jazzy.

We love you guys and are glad we could be there to help you.

I can't go get a new one cause it won't replace Sammy, Meow is lonely though. We miss our baby so much. We've cried for two days now.
