Serena and Samantha Serena and Samantha are approximately six weeks apart in age. They came to live with us in 1988 while we were living in Oklahoma...June 2005. Update: Sadly, we lost Samantha to renal failure April 5, 2006. She was such a good cat and never caused a bit of trouble. She faithfully woke Jim up every morning and reminded him to feed all the animals. We'll always miss her. Update: Another sad addition. We lost Serena to old age on January 23, 2007. She was my baby and waited every morning for me to carry her out from the bedroom to the kitchen to eat. I'll never forget how she liked to "talk" to me and I'll miss her forever.
