Moments ago, our cat Sammy just passed away.
My step-father's cat, Sammy, was an extremely clingy, but attentive and loving feline that always decided to lay on my laptop, bags and PC. He'd scratch you when you picked him up, but when he was on ground of his own accord he would pester you by rubbing his face against your hands, legs, face, any body part so he could grab your attention and give him love. I've only known him for a little more than a year, but he was what made my days a little more special each time.
He passed away in my arms while struggling to breathe. He'd been missing for 2 days after growing incredibly lazy for the past month and losing weight, and we knew his time was growing thin. We found him just an hour beforehand, and managed to get in our goodbyes, and pats to comfort him in his last moment. This is extremely hard to write, because it hurts to lose a pet. But I just wanted to share how lovable this cat was, and how special he was to us all.
As a result I may not be active for a week or so at most.
