Lucky me!

I already have a pending adoption! Please take a look at some of my other friends who are still available for adoption.

Meet Sampson

Hello, I’m a super involved kitty and I’d love to spend time with you and be your closest companion.

I love to have people pet my tummy, and I love snuggling. If you’re home often, I’ll always be around to brighten up your day or I’ll be waiting for your return after a day of work!

I do well with children, and prefer to be the center of attention. I’m also good with other cats. If you’d like to have a fun, playful feline companion I’ll be ready to meet you!

-Thanks Girl Scout Troop #51004 for helping write my bio!

Sampson's Medical Information

I have FIV, that's what I have but it is NOT who I AM! Please don't let that scare you away. I want you to know that FIV+ cats can and DO live long, healthy, and normal lives when given the chance. In fact, statistically, most FIV cats live as long as their indoor counterparts (13-18 years), and much longer than cats that live outdoors (3-8 years). There are many reported cases where FIV+ cats live well into old age without ever showing any symptoms. It's important to note that dogs, other pets, and humans are absolutely immune to FIV. The virus itself is astonishingly frail and can live outside of the body for only a few seconds. The virus is also extremely slow-acting, so it is unlikely to pose any threat to other cats in the household. I know that adopting an FIV+ cat may seem like a big responsibility, but I promise that I am worth it. I am a sweet and loving kitty who just wants a warm and safe place to call home. If you are willing to give me a chance, I promise to bring you years of joy and companionship. So please come and meet me, and see for yourself that FIV+ cats are just as wonderful and deserving of love as any other cat.
