Good-bye Sammy

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Wednesday after work I had my cat Sammy put to sleep! It was very hard to do, he was my buddy for 15 years. He was very friendly and always there when I needed him. I know this sounds strange but I thought of him as real person.
Good-bye Sammy I will miss you!!

    My Mr. Puddin' Face died almost a year ago to the day at a few months shy of 20 years old. Even though I have moved I still see him in all his favorite places and feel him come to bed about 30 seconds after I settle in for the night. He is my 'kiity' angel and Sammy will be yours.
    I will keep you in my prayers. emoticon

    I agree with everyone else - not strange at all. Pets are family! I'm so sorry for your loss.

    My kitty Patches died a few months ago and I know how sad you feel. But as others have said, Sammy lived a good life and you were a good Mom! You are in my prayers today.....

    Not at all strange. As you know they do love you back and they all have their own personalities. He was a part of your life and I do know how much you will miss him.
    He was so special to you. Sammy was so so lucky to be your cat. Know that he knew that too and it will help you through this. Know how good you made his life. Hugs Beth. This is not an easy time but you will soon have the good memories coming more then the grief. I have been there too and it is never easy to lose a loved pet. Know that I am here for you if you need to vent and grieve.

    I agree, it isn't strange at all, animals do have such an awesome personality, they become like one of your kids, I know, as I had my cat of almost 18 years put to sleep as he went into total organ failure one night back in 2006, the Vet said there was nothing they could do, he had been diabetic for 5 years, I gave him insulin injections twice a day, in the end the diabetes took over and his organs failed, he was my best buddy, even though I rescued another "best Buddy" a few months later I still miss him, he was a beautiful "Red Tabby" I now have a beautiful "Orange and White Tabby, he is so sweet. I'm sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you and your family... emoticon

    That is not strange at all. Animals have their own personalities and feelings and I am positive that Sammy thought of you as a dear friend too. Sammy was lucky to have you in his life. I am sorry for your loss. Sending positive thoughts your way.
