and I'm just heartbroken :( I can't believe my sweet little man is gone.
Sammy was so special to me, he taught me so much in his short time on earth. He may have been blind but he sure wasn't disabled, he did and went everywhere a seeing cat would. He took a huge part of my heart along with him.
Sammy was diagnosed with primary brain disease about 2 months ago. He started off getting a bit wobbly and then would lose his balance and fall quite a bit. It progressed fairly quickly to the point where he could hardly stand up and would almost shuffle along. He went on prednisone a little over a month ago and was doing great on it until last weekend when he began to decline again. I upped his dosage but it only helped a little bit. His quality of life was not anywhere near where it should have been so as hard as it was for me to do I had to set him free from his failing body.
He may have had a short life that started off pretty rough but I loved him with every ounce of my being and he knew it. He also knew how much his friends here cared for him.
I'm sure he is whole again at the Bridge and is snuggling with his best bud Bubba who I lost just under 2 months ago at the age of 16 1/2.
Rest In Peace my sweet man, momma loves you so much.
