Facts about Samuel L. Catson

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Samuel L. Catsun or simply Sweet Sam was found in the Sam’s Club parking lot. He’d been hit by a car. Our volunteer put him in her car and brought him to us so we could get him medical treatment. He had road rash down both sides of his body, but thankfully no broken bones, or internal injuries. Despite his painful injuries, Sam was a purr machine. Every time you touched him, his purr motor would engage. He loves to sit in his foster mom's lap, wrap his paw around her neck like a baby, and offer his nose for kisses. Sam is one of the sweetest cats there is. Sam has long since completely healed from his injuries. On each side where the injuries were most severe, his fur has grown back with a small white patch to mark the spot. Despite Sam’s sweet loving disposition, he has fallen victim to Black Animal Syndrome. Black animals are passed over for lighter colored animals. Although Sweet Sam is quite content in his foster home, he would love to get a furrr-ever home of his own, with humans of his own to love him.

Sam is neutered, FIV/FeLv negative, up to date of his vaccines. Sam requires a grain-free diet. He is in a foster home with other cats and a small dog. He gets along well with them all. Sam has never been around children but would probably enjoy small hands as long as they were gentle and not pulling his fur or tail.

Special Need: Special Diet-Grain Free

About Purrs & Wags of Memphis

About Our Rescue Group...

Purrs & Wags of Memphis is a no-kill rescue. We take in and provide care to pets who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or injured. When they are ready we endeavor to find them the best possible homes for the rest of their lives. All our adoptable pets will be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, wormed, FIV.FeLv checked, HW checked, some but not all are microchipped. They all have spent time in foster homes, so we can tell you how they behave with children and other pets (even husbands)

Purrs & Wags are always looking for qualified foster homes for dogs & cats. To foster you must be willing to provide shelter, day to day care, and love to a rescued animal for an extended period of time. Some animals stay in foster care for years before being adopted. You must be able to take them to Vet appointments, adoption events, and meet & greets. If you are interested, contact us for more information.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our foster animals, which includes feeding, watering, bathing when needed, litterbox cleaning, not to mention grooming, loving, petting, and walking the animals. If you are interested in helping out with the day to day care of animals already in foster care, contact us for more information.
