He likes to lounge in the backyard, and he likes dark colors. If you're wearing dark clothing, that's when he wants to be on your lap
foster kittens, his nails clipped, touching his fur when he didn't invite you to :)
laser, fleece on a stick
Favorite Nap Spot:
couch in family room or on a bed
Natural Balance dry & a variety of wet food treats
We can tell him 'fish lips' and he'll just move his mouth without making a sound. Comes in handy when he's not getting his way and annoying us with his Siamese meow. Hee, hee! :)
I was restricted to bed after having surgery so I wore out the TV flipping through the channels. I came across a show that had Sampson on as a guest. They said that this was his last plea for a home because the shelter he was at was going to have him PTS the next morning. When my then husband arrived home from work I told him about Sam. We called and nobody had adopted him, so we gladly did. That's the one thing that I am grateful for about that time being stuck in bed ...... if not for that, we would not have known to go adopt this precious, silly little spirit!
We had one other cat at the time named Chauncey. Shortly after we adopted Sam, my doctor gave us a cat that somebody had dumped out of their car in front of her home. We named him Sebastian and all three cats got along very well. Chauncey passed on, and Sampson and Sebastian were the best of buddies for several years. We never found out what happened, but Sebastain mysteriously vanished one day. Neither cats were allowed to go outside at that time, and neither of them ever tried. We ran ads and hung up posters, knocked door to door with no luck. Our Wal-Mart even let us post a big 'missing photo' on their front lobby doors. Sam took up camping by our window in the family room. He stared out that window solid for weeks, we couldn't get him to eat much, he was so depressed. Then one day he retreated to the master bedroom and he remained in there for several months. He lost weight, and slept all of the time. Although we were heartbroken too, we tried everything with no luck to bring him back around. Then we decided to adopt Chico along with another cat we named Hollywood, and Sampson came back to life. Not that easy, as Sam smacked me and bit me three times when he figured out there were two new kitties in the spare bedroom. :) Sam is quite a different kitty. His personality can amuse anyone because he's such a silly character. He does not appreciate being pet on unless he asks you to. He will stomp off and give himself a bath if you dare try. But then all of a sudden there he will be on your lap and demanding to be pet all over. This is usually when you are dressed up in dark clothing and ready to leave the house. So is he showing affection or is he cracking himself up by covering his human in hair? Ha! His silly character leans me towards that he's amusing himself! Hee, hee! He does like to give kisses, lots of them, and he'll repeatedly grab your hand, lick it and use it to wash his face. :) Sampson really is a beautiful, gentle spirit. Our family loves him more than words can express. We couldn't imagine life without our silly Sam.

First of all I am grateful that I still have a Diary to write in. ~hugs to Catster old and new~ My human g-ma recently passed and my mom has been feeling so grateful for all of the years that she was able to spend with her. My health has been recently failing and she is grateful too for the many years her and I have been blessed to spend together. She still says that I am the silliest spirit she has ever met!
I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips several years back, I have refused any kind of help. PLEASE!! I after all am, SAM I AM! ~purrs~ I have always been known as the meticulous groomer! My precious fur is my .... sits back and licks his lips & blows off his claws.... trademark! Lately I don't seem too much to care about that. Mats on my back? Whatever! But mom is concerned and tries every clever trick to help relieve them. She keeps singing the song Umbrella by Rihanna! I do appreciate her!
It's known around my town that I am difficult, that I bite! Doc's don't like me, my mom's friends don't even trust me. Well.... I did bite one of them to the bone one time when he petted me too rough for my liking! **oops** Tonight I let mom take a baby's shaver to my back end.... well at least for a minute or two! I saw tears in her eyes, not from me hurting her I swear! Her heart is confused. Looking at me from the front I am Sampson, full of life and zoom around silly as always. But from my other end I look like a starved cat, emaciated who should be sent to the blessed other side. I eat fine, drink fine, poop fine, pee fine?? Everyone just tells her to relax, that she'll know when it is 'my time' to join g-ma. She keeps kissing on me and telling me that she doesn't want to be blind. Blind? Leave that to Nakita mom, you have your eyesight!
Time for a nap now. I have missed and love all of my friends here. Sorry I have missed so much!
Purrs & Head Bonks
**note from mom, I believe Sam's days are numbered and I didn't want it to be a shock when I write about his crossing. I was always so worried about him getting cancer, remember? Hip arthritis can be just as bad, he's still hanging in there for now though**

‘A New Day Has Come’ (the tune mom keeps humming) and
there’s a great feeling of gratitude and lots of love in the air throughout my kingdom. Even Queen Nakita seems to be trotting around in a good mood and keeping her paws and claws to herself.
As I mentioned in my last diary entry, my Sissy C had a baby boy, and on my birthday! I already share my birthday with my Auntie M and my Auntie K’s son, Ryan. In fact Ryan and I not only share the same day, we are the same age! ** although somehow I feel so much older and wiser than him…. giggles ** So now I am thrilled that I also get to share my special day with my precious new human nephew. *purrs*
Mom is so grateful that as I turned a healthy 12 years old, that Lil‘ T came into the world a healthy, happy baby! Sissy C is mom’s only child and it was thought for many years that her having any kids was not going to happen. But it now has and we’re truly blessed with little baby T!
Another nice thing I am grateful for is that my friends remembered my birthday and stopped by my room to help celebrate my day! That was so kind, as we haven’t been around for quite awhile. I quickly pawed out a diary expressing my thanks and explained the distracting and exciting news about Sissy C, only to later discover that it became a Daily Pick! Many more purrs of ’thanks.’ Mom said that I could trot around later this evening and give out my proper ‘thank yous.’ Hurray, time in catsterland, I can’t wait!
All is well here in my kingdom. Chico and I still spend the days wrestling and from time to time we are able to go out and explore the outback. Nakita has adjusted well to losing most of her eyesight, in fact if you didn’t know it you wouldn’t be able to even tell. And Lil’ Muppet has been off of the pain meds for several months now. She has mostly good days and is just as adventurous as ever, keeping mom on her toes. *smiles*
I hope my friends know how much I appreciate them and I hope they too are all doing well.
Happy, Happy Purrs & Headbonks,

My Sissy C is at the hospital right now having a baby boy! Mom’s first grandbaby ....and being born on my birthday! Hurray! I am very grateful for everyone who has stopped by to wish me a great day, even though I haven’t been around much. Big kitty hugs & love to you all!
When things settle down here, I will trot around and give my personal thanks. I appreciate each of you for making this happy day even brighter!
Headbonks & Love,
