Samson is a spry guy, with a sensitive side. He may be skittish at first, and will need a bit of time to get the feel for his new surroundings, but once he’s gained his confidence his curiosity will blossom, and personality unfold. His foster parent reports that they knew he was feeling more confident after hearing a thump in the kitchen cabinet one morning, only to turn around and find Samson rooting around! He also likes to chat with you using his tiny little meow. In the evenings he loves to do his exercises, and after a vigorous scratch session on his favorite cardboard scratcher, Samson will join you on the couch to enjoy some pets. His foster parent says that Samson has become very comfortable asking for pets:
“His new move is to jump onto the bed and dramatically flop to his side, exposing his belly… pets please!!”
Samson has had some stomach upsets in the past, but is now feeling good on his special diet for digestive health. His appetite is healthy, but he never wakes his foster for food. Since he is sensitive to loud noises, we suggest he go to a mellow home with patient guardians, and no young children. Samson also prefers to be the only cat in the household.
Samson is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and negative for FeLV/FIV.
