The health (or lack thereof) of Samantha is what is discussed here, although Samantha ends up living longer than most cats ever do!

Tom then explains the animal he misses the most, besides Pogo the Possum, was Peanut the cat. The strange story of Peanut is also told.

Cartoon Cats:  Animations fill out the story where photos and film are not available. An animation of Samantha as an old cat in a rocking chair is shown, as well as one of a cat named Squeaky who had a kink in her neck and met with a tragic fate.
