"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

This is Sammy. I got him when I was four years old.
Two years ago today* he died.
This picture is one of the last times I saw him.

And in case you didn't notice, my cats have a habit of dying around my birthday. I'm still not sure why.

*He actually died on Leap Day, so I can't really commemorate his death. Lame. But kind of cool because he literally leaped.
