Today I lost my best friend.....My sweet cat Shamus passed away. He was the most loving cat I have ever known. He was a great big brother to his little sister Sabrina...and when Sabrina lost her sister Samantha, Shamus took her under his wing (paw).      

Words can't describe how much this special, adorable loving cat will be missed.

He was found ten years ago as a kitten, in the parking lot of office buildings next to New Hanover Hospital in Wilmington ,NC. Five paramedics spotted him by himself, and rescued him in a flower bush. He was itty bitty, plain looking and a nervous ninny. That night I fell in love with that ninny and the next day, brought him home to be a new member of our family. He grew into a gorgeous man cat and what a blessing he was.

I must add, that Dr. Golden and the staff at AHNA were so wonderful in attending to our Shamus and our deep grieving. They are truly a special group of loving professionals.    

God speed Shamus, thank you for being a part of our family...xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo forever
