True Friendship/Goodbye to Sam

For the last six months, my beloved Sammy boy has lived with Amy and Christy, two dear friends from church. When I was in a bind to move to Sacramento in less than two weeks, they graciously opened their home to my kitty that I wasn't ready to part with permanently. They loved him and scratched him and put up with his bad litterbox management and in doing so, showed true friendship to me. Knowing that he was shown such love by these girls has made it much easier for me to part with him again...

As you can see, Sammy really is the world's fattest cat. Hopefully, his new brother and sister will keep him energized and it will help him to lose some weight!

It's a sad sad, but happy day.

Just found out this morning that my mom found a new home for my Sammy-boy. The girls who have been watching him are both getting married and Saturday is their moving day, so I really had to cram to find someone to either give him a temporary home or a permanent home. Since I don't know what I'm doing next, I decided to see if there was someone out there who could love him a lot and give him a happy life. We found her! She's the hostess at my parents local restaurant and she has two other kitties. She loves fat cats and is excited for Sammy to come and live with her. I'm just glad that she'll be able to give a lot of love and affection for my little guy. It's bittersweet, but for the best...

Just found this pic of my grown-up sister and I at a recent wedding. She's so pretty!

Went to the USC game last night!

Went to my first USC football game last night and got hooked up with some ridiculous tickets. A coworker and I sat with Mike Salmon (brother of former Angel, Tim Salmon) and his wife in the 8th row between the 40 and 50 yard lines. During the third quarter they gave us their field passes and we watched from the sideline. It was pretty AMAZING!
