Sammy the cat

It seems as if a lot of pets are in need this winter!

Jeff, from Cornerstone Pets sent in this piece written by Janet Horton.


As you can see, I’m a gentle, lovely cat who loves to cuddle and listen. People fascinate me — they’re so intelligent. If you can put up with a cat who will think the sun rises and sets on you, then adopt me.

I’m homeless — again. This has happened to me twice. The first time was three years ago, when I was a kitten. I had just been born. It was the middle of a cold winter and my mom had just had me and my siblings under a bush. A very intelligent human found me, and knew I was about to die. The rest of my siblings were already gone.

My Margaret died last September. Margaret turned no cat away, and when she died, she had 23. Most of us have been adopted. I’m the leader of the house, and now it’s my turn.

So, as you can see, I’ve had it hard. I’ve had it good, and truthfully, now I’m scared. I hope I’m not shaking and crying. If I am, please forgive me. I’m usually so calm and peaceful. My problem is I keep wondering: Who’s going to love me now?

The nice ladies who have been taking care of me since my Margaret died thought my name was Samantha, but I am NOT a girl. When they realized this, they started to call me Sammy, but I’d like a new special name that captures the wonderfulness of me.

If you want to know more about Sammy or any of the six others that still need a home, please call Janet Horton at 201-963-3173.

Jeff says:
“Sammy and perhaps another of the siblings will be at Cornerstone Pets tomorrow (Sunday, February 11th) if anyone wants to see him in person. Margaret made provisions in her will for these cats and anyone who adopts them will have all vet bills paid for the first 6 months after adoption. The house where they are staying is being taking over so they only have a few weeks left to adopt out the remaining 6. It’s amazing how many have been taken in to good homes already, but I thought 411 might help get the job done.
