Meow! My name is Sammy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Tan Or Fawn||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Sammy was rescued from the shelter, where he came in as a big sweet tomcat (he has the big head to prove it!). He is an absolute lover. He loves to be petted and will even roll over to have his belly rubbed. If you get close enough he will even give you headbutts to show how much he loves you. He is a very cool, chill cat who would probably get along with just about everyone. He is a little nervous about being held right now, but he might warm up to it as he settles in. He is a big boy that you would never imagine could be so gentle as he winds around the legs of a small child, begging to be petted. He just craves attention, brushing and can also be playful at times, especially if you follow up with food! We have seen him be aggressive towards dogs, so we think he may have had a bad run-in at some point in his past, and he would like to have a dog-free home! He is bonded to Sweet Annie and they need to be adopted together (see the picture of them together).

Rescue Group Info...
Fancy Cats Rescue Team was founded to provide the community a "safety net" for cats and kittens that are abused and abandoned, or added to the euthanasia list at the shelters that we are currently participating with. We are a 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organization and participate with the United Way/CFC #8929. The goal is to have no kill shelters in place. Education and responsible pet ownership are the foundation of our organization. Our program provides literature, counseling, referral services and educational resources to families and individuals needing guidance. Teaching people responsible pet guardianship by spay and neutering their pets, behavioral modification and health concerns. We also provide a mentoring environment for our youth volunteers where they can learn the rewards of community service while caring for animals that need their gentle, loving kindness. They also interact with the community providing self-confidence and the ability to interact with a variety of cultures and diverse backgrounds. Once an animal is received into our program, they remain with us until a safe, appropriate home is found. They are never euthanized based on their age or space limitations. They are given appropriate medical care, immunizations, spays or neuters and endless hours of tender, loving care. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded by community donations, 91% goes toward the care and well being of our animals. Our adoption fees help offset our veterinary bills.
Our adoptions are held at the Fair Lakes PETsMART in Fairfax Virginia, at the Chantilly PetsMART, at the Gainesville PetsMART, and at the Springfield PetsMART
Check our website for upcoming adoptions. www.fancycats.org
Our adopters fill out an application that screens for problems that may be detrimental to our cats and kittens. Once the adopter is approved we provide veterinary referrals which help with low cost spays or neuters for the kittens that are too young at the time of adoption. We are always available to help with behavioral issues that arise. We provide numerous information sheets in our adoption folders, plus the medical background of each cat. The only fees involved with our program are adoption fees that offset our veterinary bills.
