goodbye little friend...

January 24, 2001 - February 2, 2017

My sweet Sam passed quietly away this afternoon. He was the best and finest cat I've ever known and I will miss him terribly. The last few weeks were a great struggle for Sam - after sixteen years his mighty heart had begun to let him down - so I'm comforted to know he is finally at peace. I'll always be grateful for our time together, for all the smiles and laughter, for all he taught me about love and life, and for the chance to share his stories here on the blog. 

Goodbye, little friend. You were a Very Good Boy indeed.

Sympathies Cheryl.I am sad he is gone and wish he could still be with you but glad you had many years together and that I got to enjoy his many antics from afar. I love the story of how you two came together and how you listened when he told you his name. They are so much wiser than humans give them credit for. The watercolour of him is gorgeous, just gorgeous. RIP Sam
