Samson

  • Animal Name: Samson
  • Listing Date: 09/04/2017
  • Date of Birth: 2003
  • Weight: 12 lbs
  • Breed: Domestic Short Hair
  • Physical Description: Grey and brown tabby with white highlights.

  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • Vaccinations: up to date
  • Animal History: Samson was rescued when he was approximately 4 years old and has had a loving home since then. Unfortunately his current living situation can no longer be ideal for him and to avoid him having to go to a shelter or be put down it is truly in his best interests to have a new loving home! He has no health problems except a daily kidney pill which he takes well, and he is big boned but not chubby, and not demanding at all. He just needs a good home with someone to give him love.
