Sam passed away several years ago. I still think of all the wonderful times we had together. I got Sam when he was just a kitten from a Humane Society . He was a tabby. I was only a teenager needing some one to talk to during those "awkward" years. I always felt I could tell Sam everything. He never judged me. He only had unconditional love to give. When I came home from school,he was in the driveway waiting for me everyday. I went off to college and Sam stayed at home with my parents. I would come home on the weekends and Sam would be there in the driveway when I pulled in. My mom would always laugh at us because Sam never wanted in the house unless I was there. Sam disappeared and I was really distraught. I looked for weeks for him. It was Christmas time. My one Christmas prayer was that he would come home. on Christmas morning my wish was granted! He came home after three weeks. He was dirty and hungry but OK!One weekend while I was home,I noticed that Sam had a lump on his shoulder. We took him to the Vet. He removed it but said it didn't look good. Three months after Sam's operation, he started to act weird. The Vet did tests and discovered he had a tumor in his brain. I rushed home to see him but it was to late to go visit him at the Vet. The next morning I got a phone call he was gone. Sad thing was I denied it to myself that he was gone. I went to the vet to see him that morning expecting to at least be able to hold him before we ended his suffering. cont....
