Last night Mawmee and I had a slumber party in my room. The boys wanted to come in, but it was a girl's only party. I ate, used the litter box, and was pretty comfortable most of the night except for the bandage on my paw. I still had in my IV catheter because I was going to spend the day at the vet's office getting fluids.
We all got up early, and I ate my breakfast and did my business. Daddy came in to sit with me while Mawmee took a shower. While he was there, I started having a grand mal seizure. He yelled for Mawmee to come in, and she kept me calm while the seizure went on.
In a span of 20 minutes, I had a total of 4 grand mal seizures. My breathing became labored. Mawmee even gave me the shot that was reserved for Gleek the next time he had a big seizure. It helped calm the last seizure I had.
I was telling Mawmee and Daddy that I wanted to become an angel. They knew it was a sign that I was ready to stop fighting. So, we all went to the vet's office when they opened this morning.
I was wrapped in my pink blanket and a purple and white boa was around my neck when I made my journey. Luckily, I didn't have any more seizures on the way to the vet's office or while we were there. I made a peaceful journey sitting on Mawmee's lap with Daddy holding my paw.
Thank you for all the love you've shown me and my family.
Mom's bawling her eyes out. She had a feeling you would go last night.
We are crying and very very sad because we love you and know how much your mom loves you and that's forever.
Godspeed beautiful Samoa.

I'm glad you were able to go home from the hospital yesterday and had a nice 'girls only' slumber party with your Mom!
Your parents are so brave to take on such heartache in order to send you on a peaceful journey to the rainbow bridge. (... and although seizures are really, really terrifying, I smiled a bit to know that you found such a grand way to your parents know that you were, indeed, ready to make that journey)
I'm purring that your family can take comfort in their memories of you. I know though that you take to the bridge with you a lifetime of love. We purr our deepest sympathy.
It breaks my heart. They did everything they could. Rest in peace, sweet kitty.
Samoa, we're very sad that it was your time to go the Bridge and sad for your grieving mommy and daddy, who love you so much. We send heartfelt condolences and purrs to your family.
Rest in peace Samoa.
Kaci & family
Samoa, I am so sad. My heart is broken. But I'm glad that you won't be sick or have to be uncomfortable. I'm going to do my very best to remember all the advice that you've always given me. I'll always think: WWSS? I'm pretty sure that Calvin and some of the others up at the Bridge are in need of your supurrvision, so I know that you're going to be very, very busy. Maybe someday when you get a chance, you can flutter by and sprinkle some pink dusties on me, and visit? I'm glad you've been my friend, and I'm glad that my mommy got to meet you in purrson.
We can't stop crying Samoa. You are free from pain sweet kitty and new again. Lets run and play in the Heavenly sunshine with all our Angel pal's ♥
Love & Many Purr's, Angel Eddy

We are so shocked and saddened to come back to this news. We are keeping you in our thoughts at this difficult time.
We are here for you at the Bridge. Your mom and dad did their best to help but it was just your time. You were with them so they could help you to come to us. You will always be with them in many ways.
And now you are catabrating your furst heavenly honor, OMC!
Concats to you, Miss Samoa~Diva Angel!
Purrs & Hugs!
Samoa, you were/are such a special presence here and your going to the bridge leaves a hole in our hearts. We will love you always. Major healing purrs to your humans and furbros. WeBees are wise--wipe our tears away and catabrate your special life.
I welcome you to the Rainbow Bridge with open paws and a heart full of love. I'm so sorry you had to make your final journey, I know how brokenhearted your parents are so I'm going to sprinkle rainbow healing dust on them.
Come and play with me in my brother's sunflower field, we can chase butterflies and bask in the beautiful light of the ever present rainbow.
Oh Miss Samoa,
We, as Cats, know we are Immortal. We shed bodies as we shed our winter coat when no longer needed. We leave behind memories, broken hearts in the case of humans who love us, and smiles when they get the time to remember.
And we come back when the time is right, metamorphosing yet again into beloved fur and whiskers, usaually, to purr and love.
You chose your time, you were ready to shed a beloved form we all came to adore-and so, dear Miss Samoa, my mom sits here and dictates for me, tears on her keyboard. Silly little human-for don't you understand what we truly are?
You are legend, you, dear little tri colored ruler of a million hearts, are so much more than a small creature who was loved-but yet, that is enough. And when a human may think the heart stops beating, I can vouch that we carry our hearts with us, after leaving a part of them, and our soul, with those we love.
Yesterday Bella came to Mommy, the first time to elusively pad through the room, then dissapear and leave the scent of spring....and yes, I pricked my ears and meowed softly, for did you not let us know you were bestowing blessings?
For you, a day of joy as you greet so many you love. And your mom and dad, well, they know. They have always known as you gifted them, gentle and spritely, that you were made of starstuff, and so as such would someday return.
Today I purr in unison with all who have been named Dreamboat. And I thank you, dear little Miss Samoa, for the gift of You.
Love and Light,
Irish Orange Ruffy
And the Ridgewood Clowder
So many loving angels to greet you, so many left behind to miss you. You are with Calvin, Violet, and Sugar....Diva in charge of your angel brigade, many tears are falling, but we know tis why we choose tear, for the love shared is worth every one. Fly high and free, watch over your furmily and hug all your angel dreamboats...
hugs and purrrrrs,
The Carolina Crew
Mom is crying. We can't believe you have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
