Sam I Am

I'm right next to mommy. This is my chair now.
I had wanted a cat so bad. My daughter was home for the Christmas holidays and we decided to go to our local humane society.
I wanted a Siamese real bad. They asked if we wanted to look at their cats. I said yes but you won't have any Siamese. Yes, they said, we have two!
They took me to see the lilac point first. It was love at first sight. She had been put in a cage by herself because she was not sociable. She saw my daughter and hissed at her.
I stopped and put my finger through the hole in the cage and she came up and gave me a head bonk. That was it -- that's my baby.
She was 3 years old. Our home was perfect for her. Just my husband and I plus we were both retired. This December 20 it will be a year that we had her. She has taken our house and made it a home. What can I say, she owns us big time!
