Sam is a stray cat with a half-black/half-white face. According to Mr. Drogan, the cat is responsible for the deaths of Amanda Drogan, Carolyn Broadmoor and Dick Gage; Drogan therefore hires a hitman to kill the cat, assuming that the cat means to kill him next. While the hitman drove along State Route 35, Sam attacked him, causing him to swerve into the ditch along the road. The crash paralyzed the hitman long enough for Sam to literally clawing his way into the man's mouth and down his throat.
By the following morning, Sam had eaten his way to the hitman's stomach and out his chest again.
