Meet SAMMY **Waiting Over a Year**

AGE: 3 - 4 years

DESCRIPTION: DSH - Red Tabby & White

LOCATION: PETS Shelter (114 W Main Street) - Panora, IA

Sammy had lived in a home all his life but when he began spraying his owner wanted "to get rid of him" instead of simply having him neutered.
Fortunately, someone was made aware of the situation and contacted us for help before the owner could follow through with her plans to simply toss him outside. And just as we thought, as soon as he was neutered, the spraying immediately stopped.

Sammy was so upset (and we don't blame him!) as his whole life had been turned upside down and he lost everything he had ever known. He hid for months in his cage and snarled out the attendants and volunteers when they tried to interact with him. Knowing that he had been a friendly companion kitty we moved him to a foster home where he ever so slowly began to trust his foster mom and show his true self. It started with just talking to him and then engaging him in play with a kitty wand or laser pointer. His foster mom never thought he looked like a Sammy and nicknamed him Paul - and when you say Paul to him in a high pitched voice he responses with a little meow. Sammy/Paul really made huge strides when he became a foster dad to some scared kittens in his foster home. He played with them and groomed them and he could usually be found curled up with one or two of them at naptime. His foster kittens are full grown adults now and he still shares a hut with her but he is also able to wander freely throughout the shelter. Although Sammy may need some extra time and patience to settle in to his new home and trust his people but if you give him that time (and know how to say Paul in a high pitched tone! LOL) he will be an awesome addition to your home. He's very tidy, low maintenance, and independent and is purrfect for someone not wanting a kitty that is up in their business - he prefers to be around but does not find it necessary to be right on top of his people. He may not be the best fit for young children or very active homes. Sammy has a beautiful buff/red tabby and white coat and stunning pale green eyes that light up the room.

Inside-only home and must keep claws. The reduced adoption fee for this kitty is $25. Each cat and kitten has been: altered (spayed/neutered), vaccinated (age-appropriate) - rabies and distemper combo, microchipped, tested for FeLV (negative unless previously noted), and treated for fleas, ear mites, and worms.

We ask that interested parties fill out a cat adoption questionnaire only if you are seriously considering adopting this sweet kitty. You can get the application by going to our website at ""
and clicking on the "Cat Adoption Questionnaire" button at the top of the page. Once you have submitted the questionnaire, an adoption coordinator will contact you usually within 24 hours. Please be patient and thank you for your interest in this kitty.

P.E.T.S. supports the "Paws Need Claws" Campaign. Cats are rather attached to their claws; please do not de-claw your cats.
