Sam is a 15-and-a-half year old cat that lives in Greenwich Village, New York. He had a picky appetite and was loosing weight for some time. He also had periodic diarrhea, constipation and straining and dehydration. It got to the point one weekend evening that he had to be rushed to the Animal Medical Center and admitted. These are his complete records. Sam is doing well at home now. His owners decided that heroic methods used that might, perhaps, extend his life a short period. They felt he would be happier and more content at home, enjoying whatever time on this Earth that the Creator allots him.
