Seven-year old Sammy was living in dire conditions in early November when a shopper spotted him-bedraggled and emaciated-scavenging for food in the trash behind a shopping center in Los Gatos. She contacted a cat rescuer who was able to entice the starving,but guarded cat to walk right into a carrier. There's no question that November 1 was Sammy's lucky day. At just 5 pounds, covered in fleas, suffering from anemia and an upper respiratory infection, he surely would not have survived the cold stormy weather that hit the bay area days later. His rescuer said it was "as if he knew he was going home."
Sammy's microchip identified his owner, but after multiple unsuccessful attempts to reach him, it became clear that poor Sammy had nowhere to call home. After a couple of weeks of steady improvement, Sammy was transferred to a foster home where he continued to thrive and learned to trust again. Now a healthy 12 pounds, this handsome orange tabby with striking green eyes is ready for a forever home.
Sammy is still a little wary of new people and situations. When he is shown kindness and patience, he is affectionate, social, and playful. His ideal home is one in which he is either the only cat, or any other cats are females. Sammy doesn't know how to interact with small children, but older children are okay.
To make arrangements to meet Sammy, please text or call Lori at (408) 644-5374.
Our mission at Town Cats is to maintain a No-Kill Adoption Center/Shelter and foster home network for friendly homeless cats and kittens awaiting adoption; to bring attention to and alleviate the suffering of homeless and feral cats in Santa Clara county; to educate the public about the pet overpopulation problem and provide the public with the tools to become part of the solution to assist homeless and feral cats through Trap, Neuter and Return programs; and to find permanent, loving, and safe homes for all the homeless house cats and kittens in our care. See our video explaining the shelter (over 7 minutes long) below!

Our Adoption Process...
All adoptions of our cats and kittens are subject to approval by Town Cats. If approved, you can take home your new feline friend the same day provided the cat or kitten is ready to go! Check http://www.towncats.org/adopt for our most current adoption fees. Each cat will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for leukemia/FIV, dewormed, defleaed, microchipped, plus routine medical check up done prior to delivery. Each adoption also includes 30 days free pet insurance and 20% discount coupon for Pet Food Express stores (check at time of adoption, sometimes we have alternate coupon books available).
Outdoor/Feral Cats adoptions require a site inspection and adoption fees vary depending on how many cats you adopt, a minimum $25 donation per cat is recommended as each cat will have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and defleaed (and microchipped, if possible). We deliver feral cats to you and will provide the enclosure/cage required for minimum 30 day imprinting.
Ask us about senior cats for senior people rates too, which are negotiated based on the cat and the person's unique situation!
