Facts about Sam

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10547748
  • Hair: Short

This handsome guy has such gentle eyes and a very easy way about him.  Notice the white patch on his chest, and he has the cutest white belly and armpits as well!  Sam spent the first few months of his life on the streets and was a bit timid when he first came to us.  He fell in love with Simone, his foster sister, and quickly learned from her that people are pretty terrific!  This guy loves belly rubs, and is always up for games that involve strings!  He is closely bonded to Simone, she did after all teach him how to love and trust.  They love to play hide and pounce and although he is bigger than her, Sam is always gentle with her.  He will be sure to melt you heart with his big purr and eyes that seem to say Thank You!!

About CatVando TNR Corp

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to prevent kittens through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, sometimes we get Trap Neuter Adoption (TNA’s). When shelters are full, we foster, socialize and vet the kittens. This part of our program also involves local youths in the care of kittens in addition to our TNR efforts.

While in our system, kittens are fed a good quality Grain-Free Kibble and care is taken to assure their long and healthy life to the extent possible. We supplement for specific issues i.e. Pro-biotics, EFA's, immune boosters and sometimes digestive enzymes.. Many are exposed to dogs and are comfortable with them. They’ve been exposed to many wonderful volunteers of all ages.

When possible we capture the mama with the litter to assure their fuller development. Many times we keep them together for 9-12 weeks. Our adoption fee covers spay neuter surgery, FVRCP & Rabies vaccinations, parasite, ear mite & flea treatment when necessary, and a micro chip. And some of them have a small ear tip—just a reminder that you’ve given a cat a home that could have otherwise had to fend for itself, on the streets.

Our adopted cats and kittens are welcome back for the duration of their life in the event the adoption doesn’t work out, or if it becomes impossible for you to keep the cat. We’re always available for consultation about behavior, health, or referrals to assistance beyond our scope.
