Welcome to my page. My name is Sammy. I live at a vet hospital. My original owners brought me in to "put me to sleep", and the girls here looked at my big eyes and couldn't do it. The other people( as I call them) said the girls could keep me. See I was a special needs kitty. I weighed almost 30lbs and could hardly walk when I came in. My mom now( as I call her) put me on a diet of Prescription m/d(mightly delicious). I am now a slim 14.7lbs, it took almost 2 1/2 years, but I am "the biggest loser". I can jump up on chairs and run, life is good now. But, mom needs to stop being such a food nazi. She says no more. She does like to play this game called "kitty curling", she throws a few kibbles down the hallway and I chase it and eat it. Oh yeah my friend Bart, he's a cat too, plays it with me, but I just shove him out of my way.

My favorite things

  • Cat Dancer
  • Eating
  • Sleeping

RIP Little Buddy

Friday Sept 14th we had to euthanize Sammy. He had not been eating well this week and Friday afternoon his tumor started bleeding alot. I couldn't let him suffer he couldn't groom himself, eat well , he didn't want to play kitty curling or anything anymore. He got to spend the am laying in the big shiny thing in the sky 's warmth.

I will miss him a lot but I am sure he is playing and eating on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

RIP my little buddy I will see you again. Luv ya Big Guy.

Post from Sam's mom

At the end of July I noted a slight swelling in Samboni's jaw. We initially thought it was his broken canine tooth getting infected. Upon further examination it was discovered he has Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Oral SCC in cats is a very aggressive type of cancer even with treatment the survival rate is not very good.

Sammy's tumor has grown about 10x in the past month and half. I fear his time is only measured in days now.

I will miss my little buddy. He makes the days at work much brighter.

Oh my Gosh

Summer is almost over. The big shiney thing is the sky stays away longer now.
My mom has been very sad lately, she says I am going to go to the Rainbow Bridge soon. It sounds like a nice place to be but it makes her very sad.

My mouth has been swollen and bleeding lately. I don't remember hurting it but mom is always cleaning it off for me cuz it keeps bleeding. Yucky. Wish it would go away.

Bart moved out last month so now I get all the attention except when the baby kittens are playing We still have some that need homes.

I need a nap now.
