Saturday Sadness

I don't know why things happen the way they do  ... but we are all very sad to report that our Dear Sweet Sammy has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. 

 He has been loosing weight for several months now and was drinking water almost non stop and quit grooming himself (which is why there has been less and less photos of him).  The last few months him and MamaBug spent many a days snuggled together ... I think he was just holding on for her.  


MamaBug does know about Dear Sweet Sammy and is very sad, but did say "He lived a long, full and happy life". 

So looks like Andy is now the ManCat of the house!!

We are so very sorry that Sammy had to go to the Rainbow Bridge. He was one of our very first blogging kitty friends and we are sure he helped to inspire Judi when she did our banner, and when she did all those wonderful hating of different cats. From his birthday on the side bar we see he was 14 years old. That is a good life for a cat, and we are very glad it was a happy life. We send gentle purrs to Judi and all of you.

We were saddened to hear of Sammy's passing. Our mommy had abandoned us for a few days and we weren't able to read all the news.
Like many others, we hope the memories help ease the empty hole that is left in your heart from this loss and that the thought of being able to see him at the Bridge one day, will help fill the sadness that will creep in at night.

I read about this yesterday, but was too sad to know what to say.
Dear Sammy, we are so sorry to hear of your crossing, but we know you will be making way for all those that are to come. I fear my little Squashies will soon need a furend where you are, and I hope you will take her under your wing when she comes. You are such a big brave man-cat.
We will miss you, until we can be together again.
Love, all of us.

We were very sorry to hear about your sweet Sammy's passing. We have lost our pets/friends/furbabies over the years and we know the greatest comfort was knowing they led a full, long life and that they were loved. Sammy had that. May you always draw comfort in the memories you have of him and in knowing he had a wonderful life.
