(had to resist putting in Hi Ho Hi Ho) emoticon
Lots of fun and tomorrow seems to have more of the same - can't wait to quit or retire. Kicking myself at some of the places I quit in the past that were BETTER than this hole. Well if nothing else at least one day is shot to hell. It was tough to come home as I realised the last time I did this Sam was still alive.

    It really sucks when you have a job you hate. I used to get physically sick before having to go to one job I had. Thank God I quite it eventually.

    Hey there.

So sorry you lost Sam. We lost our cat Rocky a couple of months ago, it was pretty tough. It sucks. I raised him from 2 days old and he only lived 6yrs. I just have to tell myself he had a good 6 years with this wierd cat lady- LOL. We ended up getting a 13 year old cat Woolfy to help our other cat. She was freaked out looking all over for Rocky, it was so sad. Turns out Woolfy was a great addition to our family, weird as hell!

RIP to your Sam.

Hope your work gets better.

Can't help but feel a bit frustrated at myself as I feel I wasted the last 2 days. On what I am not entirely sure but I guess today I felt kind of rundown and spent quite a bit of time consoling on of the cats (not sure if she is sad because Sammie is gone but she seemed to constantly need attention this morning and has been hanging around me a lot more than normal). I know things can only get better (I hope),

    I thought this might happen. You are doing the right thing. It must be very confusing for her and lonely. You need each other.

Sort of a mixed up day I was still tired and am trying to psyche myself up for the return to work on Monday. I was going to post a video of Sam and Charlie (Charlie just LOVED Sam) but I haven't downloaded from my camera yet.

I still feel sad but I think it was kinder to have him go when he still had some quality of life and I still found my self trying to call him and I almost fed him along with Charlie (they both shared a can of cat food twice a day) and had to remember only to put ONE dish down. I am tired as I did not sleep good last might (woke up at 4 this morning), Thanks for all your kind thoughts and messages.

    Hope you get a good sleep tonight - it seems you have great memories of Sam - hold that in your heart - sorry for your loss emoticon

    What I do when I lose a pet is to shower my other pets with attention. No one will ever replace him but you have other pets to take care of and I'm sure they are sad too and miss him.

I think I am dehydrated from all the sobbing. He went in at 2:50 pm (I am writing this a 4:13). I couldn't go but I should have - he had one bad (fused) hip and the other one had an infection in it. I feel awful I wasn't there for him I will sure miss him. I hope he is in a better place. I have to stop. Sorry.

    Thanks - its true one cat can never replace another- I had a real dislike of Sam as he shed a LOT and I was dead set against getting any long haired cats. But when Malcolm died (MY cat) I realised we BOTH had lost our best friend.

    Your blog really touched me. We have 3 cats.

My cat passed 12/1/11 . His name was Sam and I had him for 14 years. I was inconsolable for several days. It was especially hard to watch the other 2 cats look for him.

We completed our family once again this past April with Oliver. When we first picked him up from the shelter, he was nothing like Sam. In the past few months, I've found Oliver doing some of the same things Sam did. Don't get me wrong, no other cat will ever replace Sam. However, I find comfort in it.
