Samantha and her kittens were rescued from a very high-kill rural animal control. Their foster mom's favorite holiday is Halloween so they were named using a witch/wizard theme. As you may guess, Samantha's name came from the television show Bewitched. She is such a sweet, gentle soul and craves affection from people. She especially enjoys ear scratches and chin rubs. She can be timid around new people at first and may need just a bit of time to adjust, but once she does, she will be your best friend. She does not have a mean bone in her body and loves everyone she meets, including other kitties. Poor Samantha was in rough shape when we pulled her from animal control. She had a polyp in her ear that caused a horrible infection so we removed it. She was also treated for a bad upper respiratory infection. Despite feeling awful, she was the perfect patient and never stopped purring and being sweet. We are happy to report that she is now healthy and is doing great, so she is ready for her forever family. Samantha does great with other cats and may adjust to a cat-friendly dog after a proper introduction. Older kids would be best for her due to her timid nature. Samantha is spayed, current on vaccinations, tested negative for FelV/FIV and microchipped - DOB 1/5/12.
