On Friday 3rd April 2009, Sam our little black and white cat was hit by a car and died :( Sam was a loving little cat who loved the outdoors. Often found under bushes he had a little gallop in his run and walked bravely like a lion – despite being a scaredy cat. Bought originally from the Animal Welfare league at Wingfield, Sam was 7 years old. He was unique in many ways – one of the most obvious was the white on the end of his tail. It’s like someone had taken his pure black tail and just dipped the end in white paint.

Sam will be badly missed. He had so many little traits that made him unique. His ability to simply flop down on you when sitting on the lounge, his walk, little run and his many different moods. A conservative cat, every now and again he would got mad and play with some type of toy, every so often looking up to make sure no one was watching. He loved very fresh water. Due to this he could quite often be found in the shower just after it had been used. A lover of fish, but not that much of beef. Sam was truely part of our lives and will be missed. He had just recovered from a cat fight that had happened a few weeks ago. You always knew when Sam wasn’t well as he’d want to stay inside. He’d sleep on the spare bed for a few days then was back to normal – with the occassional cut needing some anti-biodicts to help heal.

Saturday the 4th we burried Sam up on our block. He would have loved it up there. Lots of outdoors, lots of new smells, a real outdoor place – perfect for Sam.

Sam we love you and you will always be in our hearts. Rest in Peace.
