Samson was born on May 23, 2007. He was the first baby from my parents' beautiful British Shorthair, Svea. My parents quickly decided that I should have Samson. I had already picked his name !!! Samson was such a happy and social cat - and a big one weighing in at 16 lbs. Food was his favorite dish in the world and my other cats quickly learned to eat right away or not at all !!! He would sit in the window sill and wait for me every single day when I came home from work. Unfortunately he had health issues. He suffered from numerous constipations which eventually ruined is ability to contain food. Samson died shortly after his 8th birthday in 2015. I had to put him to sleep. He was suffering. To this day, I know it was the right decision, but it still breaks my heart. We all love our pets, but Samson was truly someone special. My best ever furry friend - I say that he was my king. Summer is almost over and people are leaving their summer cottages and going home. But a lot of stray cats out there are just left behind. Left to starve and freeze during the fall and winter season. I therefore encourage you to make a donation in honor of my great Samson. We need to make an effort to keep these kitties safe and sound.
