Say It Ain't So, Daddy

Samantha just celebreated a quiet 100th birthday resting in her favorite spot snuggled next to Daddy Jim.

I woke up this morning at 4 a.m. and Samantha was cold and still. She didn't move when I touched under her chin and when I wiggled the blankie she was lying on.

As I lay there wondering how long I would have to wait for Jim to awaken, he stirred and reached out to touch Samantha as he always does.
I grabbed his arm and said, "No, she died."

But, just then Samantha lifted her head and rubbed her chin against his hand as she tried feebly to stand on useless back legs. Samantha must be on her 98th life!

Tell mommy "It ain't so!" she purred to Daddy Jim.

This picture was taken a few minutes ago.

Take Care on the Journey - However long or short it is!
~Love, Linda

Hang in there, Samantha! What a scare, Linda and Jim. I'm relieved to hear it wasn't true after all!

I'm glad Samantha just needed a blankie and her morning love.
I know it will be heartbreaking when Sanantha goes to Kitty Cat Land but King Tut & Miss Mollee May will be there to keep her safe.
