Goodbye, Sweet Sam

Saturday we had to say goodbye to one of the sweetest cats we've ever had the joy of having in our family.

Sam was given to me by my Mom 10 years ago... he was probably 1 - 1 1/2 years old then.

He was a sweet-natured cat and patiently shared his space with the turkeys and birds and chickens.


He loved catnapping... a lot!


...even with dogs yapping all around him...

He quietly sat on the back porch, watching squirrels in the nearby trees.

 And catnapped some more...

I've posted about Sam over the years... you can read stories about his love of catnip, his turkey watching, and tolerance of dogs here.

Goodbye, Sweet Sam. We'll miss you. ♥


  1. Dear Lana,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss of your beautiful pet. My heart and thoughts are with you.
    Many hugs,
    Karen B. ~ Todolwen

  2. So sorry to hear! Such a lovely kitty.
    Blessings, Patti

  3. What a beautiful and sweet looking cat. I am so sorry for your loss.

  4. Such a gorgeous cat and a great friend over the years.
    He shall be missed but find comfort in the fact you gave him a loving home and he enjoyed life to the fullest.

  5. Lana, Sam was a beautiful companion to you and your dogs through the years. His tolerance of other critters was the exception to the rule of animals and we appreciated him even more for it. I know you will carry him in your heart forever. Janie
