From the Foster:
Hi! My name is Samson, but Foster Mom usually calls me Sam or Sammy. I live with my brother Tony/Moses and we are good buds so we would like to find a home together.
I'm a really cool guy, once I get to know you and my surroundings. When I am first introduced to something new I'm very cautious but usually my curiosity gets the best of me and I have to check it out. Once I'm comfortable, I really like attention. I like to stand on the clothes dryer and let Foster Mom pet me, I would stand there all day if she would keep petting me. I'm not so sure about being held for any length of time, but Foster Mom has been practicing with me and as long as I get plenty of scratches, I'm content to let her hold me for a few minutes. Foster Mom loves to oblige my need for scratches and petting, she is always telling me what beautiful, silky fur I have. I must admit - I am a gorgeous specimen.
I've become quite the talker now that I've settled into my temporary home - I like to have conversations with Foster Mom and even sometimes just with myself so that everyone knows where I am in the house. I really enjoy using scratch pads and I love when Foster Mom adds catnip to them. I'm not all that interested in toys, generally speaking, but I will bat a ball around once in awhile.
I'm still not so sure about these other 4 legged creatures that are in the house - Foster Mom calls them dogs. They can be very loud sometimes, but I'm getting used to their noises. I still usually just eye them from a distance but I've been shortening that distance from time to time. If they weren't so interested in getting to know me, it would be easier. I like to move at my own pace so if my next home has a dog, it would be good if they didn't pay attention to me until I was ready.
I'm a pretty awesome feline friend and would love a fur-ever home for my brother and I . Could it be with you?
All cats are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.

If you live in MN, WI, IA, SD, ND, or IL and would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/adoption-information/ and the foster(s) will be in touch!
Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
