In an alternate thread, Phobia would help mourn the loss of a pedigreed Pomeranian. Just goes to show you that he needs an optometretrist visit.

Bad ass maybe. Big ass, no. He was only 7 Lbs. Looked a lot bigger unshaven. But all fluff.

I have been very sad for the loss of any pet I have had, but I had never openly cried for one. But I'm not ashamed to say that I have cried tonight literally out of tears. Fariba too. Sammy was very very very special. Unbelievable personality along with that very unique freak of nature look.

Sorry Frankie.

What happened? Isn't 11 years old very young for a cat?

Frankie
08-15-2011, 01:11 AM
Sorry Frankie.

What happened? Isn't 11 years old very young for a cat?

Yes it is. He got sick almost 2 weeks ago and quit eating. Blood work and X-rays ruled out serious stuff. Although his vet did say she heard a little heart murmur and it could be his heart was slightly enlarged. To combat any possible infection he was given antibiotics which fixed him in 48 hours. He started eating and gained weight quickly.

Fast forward to today. About 3 Pm we came home from shopping and found him on his side on a three ring binder I had left next to the couch. His mouth was agape and his eyes were unusually wide open. When I picked him up his hind half and legs were dead. He came to and facially acted normal except he could not get up due to his legs. Long story short, we ended up at the animal emergency room. He was (best guess) diagnosed of having feline saddle thrombus. Evidently blood cloth had formed in the main artery leading to his hind side. That in turn affected his kidneys and liver and lactic (?) acid was attacking his system. At that prognosis and the fact that they were very negative about his chances we approved their recommendation to put him to sleep.

This is a very painful night for us. I'm trying to stay realistic and remind myself that he was only a pet. But as pets go, he was by far the most special, smart, communicative pet I've ever had. I miss my son's toddler days, but Sammy just felt like my permanent toddler.

Sammy was a freak. He had extra long heir on top of his head. Persians are long-hair but the hair on top of the head stays short. In case of Sammy, the abnormality combined with his coloration and body shape (narrow behind) perfectly lent itself to the lion cut.

It took me about 10 years to get another. I had forgotten how much work there was in having a big dog.

We still have Puya (picture, below). But we are staying a one cat family for the foreseeable future. Puya, however knows he's a pet and acts accordingly. Sammy truly had enough self esteem to consider himself having the same rights as the humans in the family. He would tell us with different meows what he wanted or didn't want. :D

Puya is descended from a blue ribbon winning show cat. Sammy I'm sure was some breeder's runt of a litter. His body shape (more stream-lined lion shape) and freaky hair made him totally wrong and he/she gave him away to a family who soon decided they could not keep a cat along with 4 little kids. Only fate put us and this family on a crossing path and Sammy became our very happy fortune.

Thanks you all for all the sympathy and warm words.

Sorry to bring back this thread, but this is interesting. Our other kitty, Puya, came down two week ago with something called Nonobstructive Idiopatic Interstitial Cystitis. He is depressed and doesn't want to eat or drink!

Turns out they don't exactly know what causes this in cats but they think it comes from kitty being distressed. It's supposed to hopefully go away after a few weeks. The vet gave us a questioner to determine the changes in the cat's life that might have caused stress. The only applicable condition: "Death or departure of a pet family member!"

In short, Puya is mourning Sammy!!! :(

So sorry to hear about Sammy. Hope your kitten feels better soon. I took my cat months to get over the death of our dog. He's with her now.

Sorry to bring back this thread, but this is interesting. Our other kitty, Puya, came down two week ago with something called Nonobstructive Idiopatic Interstitial Cystitis. He is depressed and doesn't want to eat or drink!

Turns out they don't exactly know what causes this in cats but they think it comes from kitty being distressed. It's supposed to hopefully go away after a few weeks. The vet gave us a questioner to determine the changes in the cat's life that might have caused stress. The only applicable condition: "Death or departure of a pet family member!"

In short, Puya is mourning Sammy!!! :(

We had to put our dog (ironically named Sammy) down last year. She was a great dog, a foxhound\beagle mix. Our other dog, Tika, is a chihuahua. For weeks, Tika (who never lasted long on a walk around the block) was walking very determined, like she was looking for something. IMO, she was looking for Sammy.

I'm not some sappy "animals are just like humans" person, but I do understand what they mean to us and how they are almost like family. The worst part about buying an animal is you pretty much KNOW it is going to die. Last year we got another dog. But nothing will replace Sammy.

Take care man.

That's exactly how Puya's current condition started! For two days before his condition he was looking all around the house looking for something. He would sit in front of every close door looking at it for about an hour. It was strange. I think it was just starting to dawn on him that Sammy may never come back.

That's exactly why you should have fed Sammy to Puya. This way the cat isn't confused, just full.
