I'm going to cut straight to the chase here: Sam thinks he is more human than he is cat. This 19 lb Tuxedo boy is one of the sweetest, most cuddly cats I have ever met. Sammy loves hiding under blankets, but especially if he is curled up in a lap or huddled up against a leg under there. He is a VERY talkative boy, responding to any acknowledgement and sometimes it sounds like he is actually trying to say words (he's almost perfected his "hello?", seriously).
Sam is very playful and loves strings and toys he can bat at but, once its time to be calm, he can just as easily find himself a space to lay on and will sit quietly with/by you. He likes to rub his head all over faces and pats cheeks with his paw when he wants attention followed by a very quiet and polite "mreow", but can be easily redirected and understands boundaries.
He has all of his claws, but isn't destructive and hasn't used them on other cats in my home. Sammy is a very sweet, well trained, boy who does well with all sorts of people. He is friendly and affectionate, and plays well with other kitties (and guinea pigs!) This big muscular boy needs attention however, and would do best with a single owner or family who can dedicate at least some couch time with him daily.
KAR Office is his foster parent. The adoption fee for Sam is $30. If more than one cat or kitten is adopted the adoption fees are discounted, please complete our online application form if you are interested in adopting Sam. A volunteer will contact you within approximately 24-48 hours.
All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue cats & kittens are spayed or neutered and feline leukemia tested prior to adoption. They also are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. All are given distemper vaccinations and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, a booster vaccine may be necessary after adoption which will be the responsibility of the adopter. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Most cats and kittens are microchipped when they are spayed or neutered.
