I’m here too…
My name is Sammy.
Many of you will know that cat-lover extraordinaire Patricia Knight died suddenly and very prematurely earlier this month (August 2016). She had owned nine lovely pet cats. Several of these cats are being looked after in Cuddles for the moment, while suitable homes are being sought for them. Homes have already been found for Zoe and Buddy and we at Cuddles have decided to integrate Dolly into our own family. Ted and Dougal are being very accommodating so far and we are finding the introduction process a lot easier than we imagined. Check out our Facebook page for updates on how Dolly is settling in.
We are featuring one of Tricia’s cats each day this week. Wednesday’s cat is Sammy.
Sammy (and Thursday’s cat Heidi) were from a TNR (trap, neuter, return) colony of cats from the Riverside area of Galway. He came to Galway Cat Rescue at 4 months old. Similarly to Molly and Sally, Tricia offered Sammy and Heidi a foster home and tamed them. A little time passed and Tricia adopted these two as she couldn’t bear to part with them.
Sammy is a little shy with new people but once he trusts you he will be your best friend. He has the saddest eyes you’ll see in a cat, though you wouldn’t think so from the photo above. Sammy loves to have the freedom to go out and play and can spend hours outside exploring happily, after which he loves to curl up in a nice warm spot for a nap. Sammy has been neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and flea/wormed. Sammy will take a little time to adjust but with patience and a gentle approach he will relax. Sammy is used to a quiet house without children but older children would be acceptable. He gets on very well with other cats.
Have you a cosy spot in your heart and home for Sammy? If so, please contact Galway Cat Rescue by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send them a message via Facebook.
