Samantha

I have had to have my 15 year old cat put to sleep today I just want to post this very last photo of her taken this morning when she was curled up on my bed.
She hadn't eaten for two days and the vet said that her kidneys had packed up. The kindest thing was to let her go. I held her while the vet sedated her so that she was not distressed when the lethal dosage was given to her. Good Bye Sammy thank you for all the happy years you have given me.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
