This is the post I knew I would have to write but hoped I wouldn’t have to for a long time. I prayed for a miracle. Now I realize I had my miracle by getting to be Sammy’s mom. He was such a special boy and he loved me the most (all the other cats prefer my hubby). He always wanted to be with me and I spent more time with him than anyone else in my life even my hubby.
We tried to buy time with the thyroid food, but his kidneys couldn’t tolerate it. The kidney food was keeping him stable, but his body was being eaten away by the thyroid. He couldn’t even close his eyes all the way. Over the weekend, he got even weaker and we knew we would have to say goodbye. His Dad and I were with him and I cut off a big chunk of my hair to go with him because he always slept in my hair.
Thank you all for the purrs and prayers and for caring about my boy. And thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for this beautiful badge (above).
And to Ingrid for the 2 beautiful badges below.
And thank you to Pam for this lovely poem:
My life will never be the same without my Sammy. I was so blessed to be his mom.
I will start posting again next week.
