Our Sammy passed away last night, and it is every bit as awful as I always knew it would be. I don't have the words right now to express what this cat meant to me. To us. I will give him a proper eulogy when I can, but for now I'm just trying to hang on. There isn't a square inch of this house that Sammy hasn't put his stamp on. It's going to be difficult road to living without our buddy. We miss him and loved him and are so thankful that he was ours (for however briefly).
Rest in peace, Sammy. Thank you for loving us so completely. You were the best -- the absolute best.
