Ruby is the family cat.
As Sam's sister, Caroline, explained on her imgr account, Ruby has been an important part of the family ever since she was found as a stray behind a Ruby Tuesday's in 2006.
Ruby immediately won the family over with her friendly and mellow nature.
She has grown up with them and become a daily part of their lives. Both siblings love her very much and have spent a lot of time with her over the years. She used to accompany Caroline to school. Sam built Ruby a cat fort.
While many cats don't like being in loud, public spaces, Caroline says that Ruby is very calm and loves attention. So, she liked being brought to the Prom. Sam even posed for a photo with her. In it, Ruby is looking up at him with a loving, trusting expression.
Though they have both graduated from high school and gone off to college, the siblings continue to post photos of Ruby and her activities. She even has her own personal Instagram account. In it, she is quite the cat about town, house, and garden.
There are also photos of Ruby enjoying Christmas as only a cat can.
