No appropriate title

I am reminded of a scene from Four Weddings and a Funeral. It's been a long time since I saw it so let the corrections to my adapted misquote go:

Sam was a bastard. He was sort of bitchy and always backtalked everything you said to him. But he was my bastard. He was my bastard in that, in a way, he was my first cat. Not the first cat in my life, but the first I ever really bonded with. Maybe it is symbolic of how much alike we were.

He'll be missed.

Hey,

I recently lost Maxxdog so I know how you felt. I haven't had a pet since I was 10. Then I get Maxx when Deb and I got married 15 years ago and we just put him down 2 weeks ago.

Hurt.

Update: Footnote 1
"...living in a 600 square foot metal tool shed in the woods in the middle of nowhere with the wife (Ellie May), 2 shelter rescue dogs and XX (2) bulimic cats."

Really, I'm sorry to hear of Sam's demise ... my condolences.

He always gave me a reason to wear a dark shirt over for happy hour. I miss him too.
