Anyone who has lost a beloved pet knows how hard it is when they leave us. This week, Jennifer Hildreth’s cat passed away. I know Sam meant so much to Jennifer. No, not everyone understands what it’s like to truly love a pet, but for those of us who do, the pet is part of our family.
The good news is Sam had a long and happy life, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to let him go. As a friend, there’s not much I can do except give Jennifer a chance to remember her wonderful cat.
“We adopted Sam from the Cedar Bend Humane Society several years ago (not sure how many but around 15 years or so). He was an awesome cat and will be hard to replace. He was very friendly and enjoyed people. He loved to sleep on my lap when I watched tv. In the morning he would follow me around until I gave him his morning treat. I even taught him to sit before I gave him his treat. When he was younger he would play fetch with one of his toys. He was truly a wonderful pet and will be missed greatly.”
