Sammi says Goodbye

Sammi all a-sparkle
Our good old cat, Sammi, passed on, on Saturday, June the 18th, 2016. He'd been suffering from diabetes, and was quite old. We got him back in 2001, and we think he was already a couple of years old. 

He was possibly a Norwegian Forest Cat, caught feral and adopted from Animal Rescue Families, in Bremerton, Washington State. His name was that of the Lap people of the Norse lands. Although I think they originally spelled it "Sammy," to match his feral mother and sister, Sally and Kelly.

The top photo shows him in the sparkly sweater that was part of his grave goods yesterday.

Along with our big old white cat Leo, he was the surviving partner of the Boys of the Look, named for the way the two of them would stand side-by-side and look intently up at us.

Sammi was sweet, self-possessed, and a good bed-warmer for the other cats. 

We all love you, Sammi. We'll miss you.

(Thank you, for helping us keeping him alive for so many months. Thank you, Roberta Gregory, for recommending the site to us.)

New Ka-Blam Tshirt

My old white Ka-Blam tshirt was too big - and just not cool. But what's better than black? So thank you, Ka-Blam, my fave floppy printer, for quality and price. And a hot new tshirt.
