SAM


Yesterday our little friend Sam made his final trip to the Vet.
Sam was 17 and his body finally just gave out on him.
He was the sweetest little man and will be greatly missed.

What is a Cat?

Gentle eyes
that see so much,
paws that have
the quiet touch.
Purrs to signal
"all is well"
and show more love
than words can tell.
Graceful movements
touched with pride,
a calming presence
by our side.
A friendship
that will last and grow -
small wonder
why we love them so.

    Author Unknown
    Good By Sam.  We will miss you.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Nancy. :( It's so hard when old friends (human or pet) leave us.

I'm so sorry you have lost your friend! We lost one of ours this past year too. Sable was 16 and was the sweetest kitty we've ever had. We still have her sister Gypsy though, and hopefully she'll be here for a while longer. I will remember you in my prayers for your comfort and peace during this time =^..^=

Nancy, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know it is painful but pray you and Jim will be comforted. Sam had a long good life with the best 'family' he could ever want! That is a really cute picture of Sam. You could always do a little memory quilt with photos of your sweet cats.

Im so sorry for your loss, we just lost our beloved pug Pebbles, our pets are like our children. We love and care for them the best we can it is always hard to lose them. I like to believe she is with my Mom on the rainbow bridge, and I will see them both again one day.

Pebbles was Mom's dog and we lost her in Jan, Pebbles was diagnosed with PDE in Feb and we lost her in May. I promised mom I would take care of her, and did everything I could but the disease was just to horrible, we did get her involved in research at U of GA so hopefully some good will come out of her death and maybe another dog wont suffer. She and Mom are together, she missed Mom so much and did understand where she was.

So sorry to hear of your loss.... I am facing the 3rd time this year that I have to say good bye to one of my dear cats. It is a tough call to make. I loved your little poem you found. Take Care.
