Sammi 'The Bull'

About Me

Active within 1688 Days

Hi! My name is Sammi 'The Bull'

I am Domestic Shorthair from Windsor Locks, CT

Nicknames: OMG! Sammi 'The Bull' Gravannnni; Sam-Sam; Sammi; Sammi 'The Bull', Sammi 'The Bull' with the 'Crazy 'Skers';

Age: 14 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Yes, he came to me with a broken pelvis; after he stopped his toiletries, eating and drinking, I went to the Vets and he had to have surgery done because all of us found out about the fact that all of his organs were pressing against his diaphragm, causing him to endure a diafragmatic hernia in his esophagus which was causing his body to not perform normally. So in his young life, he already had to have major surgery which could have went either way, after being hit by a car before coming to me. While he was recouperating in the hospital, I came to see him every day, mostly twice a day. He was in there only four days because he improved so quickly that I was able to take him home while he was able to rest and have Mommy take care of him. He has also survived through at least NINE of his NINE lives, and now we're on borrowed time because he, shortly after that, was diagnosed with IBD and Megacolon. I took him to a specialist who deals in Megacolon, and cats hit by cars, because that is more the norm when cats have Megacolon. The specialist suggested that I have a subtotalcolecti- my or a total collectimy which meant another involved major surgery, so after I weighed out the cards on the table, I opted not to have this performed because he has compounding Irritable Bowel Syndrome, as well, and with his body, a huge problem arose, and that was that he could not go through another major operation with what was going on inside his body; the Vets all told me that he stands a good chance of dying on the operating table, so I didn't have it done. So now I'm still going through feeding him a special diet, keeping him hydrated with subq fluids almost diurnal, and almost every couple of days I have to perform several enemas of mineral oil and warm water to help him push his feces out, because of the shape of his colon, and not being able to defecate on his own all the time. I don't mind except that I know that someday perhaps sooner than I'd like I'm going to have to look into the eyes of a cat that doesn't want to be put down, but will be before he suffers. He has those big beautiful eyes and they haven't told me yet that it's time to quit. So I won't, yet. He is not suffering, and actually he has been a wound up nightmare of a kitty because he goes nutz around the living room and entire house before he lands on his kitty tower, almost out of breath from running! He's still full of p&vinegar so I'm just loving him up!

My favorite tricks and treats are: He likes to think he can fly, especially with his broken down body, and he often would get hurt due to his clumsiness! and Anything with cheese in or on it! Also, cheese crackers and popcorn!

Where I hang out: On Mommy's lap!

My favorite grubs: Basic Instinct Rabbit Food for Felines.

My pet peeves: Hates to have his nails trimmed, but is getting used to having baths!

What I love about my owners: My Mommy is like me. She NEVER gives up! I've had so many lives that I can't put down everything now, but my Mommy hangs in there and does what is necessary to get me feeling better! We all love her! I have had so many cat lives that living now is just a bonus!

My cat hobbies: Play with Snowshoes, one of his brothers, and to try and eat crunchies, which he knows he cannot because of his diet! He keeps me moving because when it comes crunchie time, I must put all the other cats in the bedroom to feed them their little bit of crunchies they get before the night is over.

Pet motto: Spay and neuter your pets!! Including your feral colonies!!

How We Met

My neighbor saw him outside of one of the bars that they frequented, where he was eating beef jerky and popcorn, and knew I took in cats and gave him to me. He was found in horrible shape: he was emaciated, lame, had a broken tooth that had to be extracted, his coat was oily and dirty, he smelled, and was full of parasites and fleas! She didn't even want to hold him!
