From the Foster:
Hi! My name is Samson, but my foster mom calls me Sam. I live with my brother Tony/Moses and I don't want to be separated from him, so we would really love a home that would take us both.
I was pretty freaked out when I first came to my foster mom's house. I spent several months hiding. There are these other 4 legged creatures that live in the house that I had never seen before; Foster Mom calls them "dogs"; they make some loud noises that used to scare me a lot but I'm getting used to them now. I still don't want to get too close, but when I'm downstairs I don't run and hide anymore if they make noises upstairs.
I really like to bet pet, especially to have my head and ears scratched. Foster Mom tells me how beautiful I am and that I have silky fur. I like to use the scratching boxes and posts that are put out for me. And I really like this thing called "catnip".
I'm still working on not being scared, but I do like attention a lot. I just have to take my time with new situations. Are you willing to give me the time? I know it'll be worth it!!
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.
