Favorite Toy: Sammy is too skittish to play but she has been known to play with toy mice.
Favorite Nap Spot: On the box in Mom's office, or in the little pink bed during winter.
Favorite Food: I don't think she has a favorite food.
Skills: Hiding. Meowing without making a single sound.
Arrival Story: When I moved to Hoboken from the Philadelphia area, I was missing my cats (Tutti and Hobbes, who I had given away two years before). A work colleague approached me about his cats because he needed to find them a new home--he was getting married to a woman allergic to cats. I took in Sammy (who was 2 years old at the time), and Jake (who was 1 year old at the time).
Bio: Sammy is one of the most shy cats I have ever seen. Most of my friends think she's an invention. When people visit for a few days, they finally get a Sammy sighting as she dashes from one hiding place to another. She is the feline example of the Highly Sensitive personality (a documented proportion of almost all living creatures, including humans.) She doesn't like the smell of lotion or Mexican food or perfume or ... anything strong smelling. She is hyper-active and begs for attention. At the same time, she's a real sweetie, very loving... just a bit schizophrenic.
August 6, 2012: Sammy has had kidney issues for awhile but refuses to eat any kidney diet food. I had an appointment for her this morning, but over the weekend a very aggressive malignant tumor developed in her neck and was the diameter of a golf ball last night. It wasn't treatable and it was already affecting her breathing. So between that and everything else, Sammy went to the bridge purring this morning.
I want to thank Sissy, Eddy, Violet, Mr. Sam, Peaches, and Tyler Mr. Boombastic for their best wishes and special gifts. It's go nice to have sweet friends like this!!
Finally, I want to thank my elusive Anony-mouse who is really the most special of friends!! This Anony-mouse leaves me treats in huge huge numbers. I love treats, so I'm not complaining. But it is mystery. And today, this special Anony-mouse left me 1616 treats for my "sweet 16" birfday!! That is SO special.
Thank you Anony-mouse. (((HUGS)))
Now if only my Mom had made me a nice birfday page.... Well, I know she is distracted.
This is very wonderful! My special anony-mouse who stops by to give me treats -- and I mean LOTS OF TREATS!! -- is back! He or she left me 1515 treats. Can you believe it? That will last me ages and ages. Anony-mouse said it was because I am 15 years old MOL.
This anony-mouse is really sneaky (as a mouse should be) and really really special!
I don't know who you are (that would be the "anony" part), but you really make ME feel special. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the tip of my tail!
