Sammy is now old enough to venture out of the foster room and into the rest of the home with the foster's animals. He is doing great! He is confident and playing with the resident cats. He is even standing his ground with the large breed dogs. He was in a new home for 1 night and did very well away from Diva so we are confident that they can be separated without issues. He is still very talky with humans and cuddles on our chest when it is nap time.
*Sammy is done with all vetting for a year. He has received a wellness exam, is FIV/Feluk negative, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped (which includes a lifetime enrollment with AKC Reunite.)*
Sammy has really come out of his shell now that most of his siblings have been adopted. He is spending his days with his foster sibling Diva and they are the best of friends. Sammy is very much a lap kitty. He actually prefers to be up on your chest as you can see in the photo's. He is also a talker. He lets his foster Mom know when he needs something.
Sammy loves toys of every kind. He also loves snow to dig in when his foster Mom brings some in for him to play in. He plays hard and sleeps hard. He also really enjoys cat trees. He will sharpen his claws, climb and sleep in them.
Young love!! If Diva leaves for a vet appointment he is very clingy and crying for her. She also does the same when he is gone. He would benefit from being with another kitty in his new home unless his humans can be very attentive and give the companionship that he craves. If you are interested in Sammy and Diva as a pair the 2nd kitty is half price so the total for both would only be $135! If you want a bonded family pair you could adopt Jackie as Sammy's companion. Jackie is his brother and they would be an awesome pair as well!
VIDEO'S: There are 3 video's you can view. The 1st one shows Sammy digging in the snow. The 2nd one is him enjoying a new toy. The 3rd video is Sammy and Diva playing with a new tunnel toy. Diva is on the left and Sammy is the goofball running at the end and it's super funny!
Sammy is fully litter box trained. He was at a home with a toddler for a home visit and was very scared of the screaming so he may do better with children 5 years old and up.
Sammy is the dark horse of the litter. When humans are in the room he hangs back and observes everything going on. He is timid at first but warms up after some time. With a slow intro and a patient owner we think Sammy will be the most loyal, trusted, best friend a person could have. He may never be the kitty who wants to greet everyone and be the life of the party but if you need a loving companion to sit through all 8 hours of your streaming marathon, Sammy is the sweetheart for you!
