scamp was my cat's name . i had him for over 13 years . last summer he was getting worse , health-wise ( diabetic / kidney failure / blind / tumors in his tummy ) and i had to have him put down crying he was a son-of-a-stray cat that a neighbor rescued ( while she was pregnant ) . scamp looked like a flame-point siamese , but he wasnt a pure-breed . he was my baby .
