Facts about Sampson

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
This gentle giant wants nothing more than to shower a family with tons of affection! If you are not paying enough attention to him, he will follow you around, rubbing against your legs, waiting for you to love on him.

Not the typical behavior for a cat that lived his whole life as a stray. But Sampson is a big sweetheart that has a heart of gold. Living life on the streets did not harden this guy. He still loved life and made the best of his situation.

Sampson had a brother that he hung around with and they were being fed by a nice, caring family. When the brother disappeared, they feared for Sampson’s safety so they brought him to Good Mews where they knew he would be taken care of until a loving home was found. And whoever adopts this mellow guy is in for a big treat. They will sit back and wonder how they enjoyed life so much without Sampson in their life!

Sampson is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab on the website.

A generous donor has paid Sampson’s adoption fee!
