Today we lost a dear cat, Sammy. He had been ill for almost 9 years. He was 18 human years old. He came to us as a rescue kitten - all of 8 weeks old. Joannie Lavigna was his foster guardian. Her daughter fed him from a bottle. He cured our grief over the former cat that passed.
We were with him in his death. We hugged and petted him just before he died.
Now Sammy crossed the Rainbow Bridge as the Poem suggests. He is whole and romping in the love of God in this special place. Some day we will be reunited with all those we love, people and animals. Until then there is a special place in my heart with his memories and love.
Thank you Sammy for 18 years of unconditional love! It is time to visit the animal shelters and find a cat to help us with our grief and moving forward.
