sammy cat

phewwweee!  it's been awhile!  see sometimes, i have trouble thinking of what to tell ya'll about me that you might find interesting, so i just don't say anything at all.  so, i thought today, i'd tell a bit about the feline grand daddy of our house, sammy cat.  he's 17 years old, that seems waaay up there to me, but who knows. 


that's a picture of the old man himself, about 5 years ago, when i first came into the picture.  he was a younger guy back then and looked a lot better.  these days sammy cat is real thin (a recent visit to the vet showed he lost one third of his body weight over the last 2 years, yikes!) and his fur comes out in clumps, cause in his old age he's decided snoozing sound better than grooming himself.  so, mum tries to fill in for him and help out with the comb.  he likes to talk a lot too and sometimes he surprises us and starts to play just like the fiesty young thing he used to be.  mum rescued him when he was six and he's been with her ever since.  the vet said he looks pretty good for his age, so i guess i can keep on chasing him!


  1. He IS a grand-daddy cat! Looks like he's got the perfect retirement plan with your family.

    We don't even think we'd chase him.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Good to hear from you Edgar.

  2. Oh, wowie he is old. And you know what they say, you've got to respect your elders (even if they are a c.a.t.)

  3. That's really a respectable age! I always love when people open their hearts and home to a special cat like Sammy (or dog) at a time when they need someone the most!
