Ode to Sam
for she's just a cow
in cat's pajamas.
Sam blessed our home and hearts for nearly twenty years. Sam knew no limits to life or love. She talked to everyone (or just herself) her entire life. She was the dominant female over all of our "own" cats and the fosters/rescues as well. She even ruled the dogs. Sam's queendom was ruled by love, though. She did not have a bit of meanness in her heart or soul.
Sam chose Bill as her "purrson", though she loved everyone. She was the first cat who ever owned Bill. It made a lasting impression on him. Though he is really a musician, he penned this poem just for her when she wasn't much more than a kitten. She was very unique and very much loved.
Though she has been over the Rainbow many years now, Sam lives on in our memory and our hearts. This one is for her...from Bill.
