The Sammy

Memorial Fundraiser

Thank you so much for supporting this fundraiser in honor of my little man Sammy.  Also know as Samshine.  

Sammy was/is such a loving and funny being.  A little black cat with a huge personality .   And I know many of you connected with him online and in person as well.   He brought us all so much joy.  Sammy crossed the rainbow bridge suddenly at midnight on October 19, 2020.  It was his Purrday month and he has just turned 10 years old. I cannot even explain how devastated I am.  I miss him every second of every day.  I know many of you miss him as well.  

I thought I would honor Sammy by raising funds to help others.  I was very fortunate to have friends and family that helped me financially with the cost of Sammy's medical bills.  But I haven't always been lucky and I know others are fearful of that reality as well.   So I selected Options Veterinary Care to benefit from this fundraiser.

Options is a nonprofit clinic that provides quality compassionate care at affordable prices.  They are a much needed clinic that help keep families together by assisting those who cannot afford care and they help our community cats with a wonderful TNR program.   

Options offers a photo tile displayed on their clinic wall through donation.  I am keeping my paws crossed that together we can raise enough funds to secure one of those tiles for Sammy.   It would be wonderful to have his adorable little face welcoming others and representing black cats.   Our donation will help Options with their amazing work.   


These special Kick-Its are made with a design by artist Caley Hicks.  Her "Smitten Kitten" design is SO Sammy.  They are available in four lovely colors and are filled with crinkle and organic catnip. The fabric is made of a cotton canvas with an eco-friendly printing processes that uses water-based pigment inks and dyes with very little waste.   

Each Kick-It will include a fundraiser keepsake card and a cute little Sammy magnet.  

The cost is $15 and $10 of that will be donated to the fundraiser.  The other $5 will be used to cover costs.   

Thank you so much for supporting this fundraiser.
