Rip - Meow Tai Sammi

My friend Sam was the best. He had a tumor (fibrous sarcoma) growing on his right shoulder blade. Noticed it first a week before Thanksgiving. It was small, barely noticeable, but by last week was larger than a baseball. He'd quit eating and gotten really thin. He was 12 & 1/2.

Sam had been my parents cat and when they passed away I was fortunate to be the one to take him home. I lived alone, so we spent a lot of one on one time together. He loved to chase and retrieve tin foil balls or Snickers wrappers (whichever was handiest). Always near me on my lap or shoulder. He didn't talk a lot, but when he did it was worth paying attention.
Have had 5 Siamese over the years. Completely love them, the way they tend to bond with one person, the way they communicate. Sam would sit and look at me, then close his eyes. I think he was happy and smiling. I know I was. Has anyone noticed how if you press your forehead to your cats, during a quiet time, that everything is better for that moment?
Sam's gone and I miss him so much. My brothers and I like to think our folks are now dickering over who gets him on their lap next.

I am so happy to see how people love their Siamese just as I do. I know what you are saying about touching each other heads. I thought we were the only one. It is heart breaking to see our love ones going through such pain and knowing that there is little to nothing that can be done to help. We are spending as much time as possible with Mischief. He is such a wonderful little boy and has made our live happy. Just like Sam.

Thanks for the comments on Sam. Have never done anything like this. He was a chocolate point. More personality than I could write here. Just miss him, & thought finding like minded Siamese people would help. It does.

What a hansome cat he was. So sad that you lost him. He looks like he was a very content happy boy and lived to be a good age. God bless him.

Hi there,

What a lovely article, it brought tears to my eyes and such a noble looking face, my Pandy, chocolate point Siamese, loves anything which rustles, such as tin foil, better than any toy I would buy her in the pet shop, she loves, heavy photocopy paper too as it can roll and she plays with it like a footballer, we reckon she would be a great mid-fielder.

Kind regards,

Beatrice
