(Special Adoption Fee) Hi, I'm Sam! I am five years old, and I was returned to JCAPL 1 1/2 years ago after being adopted as a kitten with my sister. While my sister has since found a wonderful family, it has been harder for me. I came back into foster as a hyper-vigilent boy who bit and scratched a lot, like it was my job. My foster mom and dad have worked with me for a long time, giving me space and paying very close attention to my body language. I also began taking Prozac once a day a couple of months ago, and I am a totally different cat now. I am still pretty spicy. Please know that I will probably swat and bite a little bit just to let you know who is boss. It's me. I'm the boss. But if you will just listen to me when I tell you I have had enough attention or just want to be left alone, we'll be just fine. I love sitting on a lap and purring, chin scratches, and hand-holding. Although sometimes I don't like it, just to keep you on your toes. I like human attention, but I'm also happy to just sit in a window or lie on a bed enjoying life on my own terms. I'm more like a roommate who wants occasional attention rather than a lap cat. I'm a very smart and handsome boy. For a cat, I'm not the most graceful but I make my foster mom laugh every day. I would be okay in a house with another cat or maybe 2 who are passive and don't want to get all up in my business. I do better with women than men, although I'm finally starting to warm up a little bit to my foster dad. I do so want a forever family and be able to explore all corners of my house whenever I want to. Right now, my foster mom has to put all the other cats (except one who ignores me) in jail so I can come out and explore. But sometimes, even when the door is open, I prefer to stay in my room and chill out. I really am a pretty low-maintenance roommate who is up to date on all my shots, uses the litter box every time, and enjoys my wet food meals very, very much. I also adore the treats and will follow a treat across Mordor just to get it. Also, the laser pointer is a very fun toy that I have yet to catch, although I keep trying. Please take a chance on me, come and meet me at my foster parents' house, and then make me a part of your family.
