Sammy's Story...
Hello! My name is Sammy and I was brought to Maxfund in March of 2012. The shelter doesn’t really know anything about my past other than I lived with other cats, but the volunteers that spend time with me certainly love me! They tell me how handsome and sweet I am all the time!

I love to be petted and when you put me on your lap, I love the attention! I’m a little shy, so I won’t necessarily seek you out, but I really love it when I get attention! There are a lot of other cats in the room I’m in at the shelter, and it gets a little overwhelming sometimes…I haven’t really found my place in the hierarchy, so I just hang out on my own on one of the higher shelves, or by the window. I don’t mind the other cats (although sometimes they don’t like me), and I’m sure I’d be fine with another cat again since I lived with them before. I’d probably be okay with a dog, too, as long as we were introduced properly. I’m a laid-back guy who only wants to find a home I can call mine forever.

What else is there to know about me? Well, I am FIV positive, but don’t let that scare you! FIV is not transmittable to dogs or humans and I can only transmit to cats via a penetrating bite. So, I am generally pretty safe around cats too, since I’m definitely not a fighter, but it’d probably be better if you didn’t have other cats, or had other cats with FIV. With FIV, I can live a long, healthy life, but I just shouldn’t be with someone who smokes. Because I tested positive for FIV, I am also available for foster. I want a permanent home but if you want to foster me, please ask the shelter about how to do that.

Will you come visit me at the shelter and make me a part of your family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy, a Denver Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Denver, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Denver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
