November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month, and in honor of that we are sharing a senior cat today. Sampson’s story touched me; he was taken in as a stray when around a year old, and then 8 years later his family moved to a place that doesn’t allow cats.
***UPDATE: Sweet Sampson has been adopted!!!***
He gets along with the other cats in his room at the shelter, and previously lived with both dogs and cats. Sampson is a big boy at 19 pounds! He is a sweetie who likes to be petted, and has enjoyed being around children. He is house trained, neutered, and current on his shots.
Sampson is at Springfield Humane Society is Springfield, Vermont. Because he is a senior, there is no set adoption fee and all that is asked is a donation in any amount!
Springfield Humane Society is a small shelter that does not euthanize other than for extreme illness or behavioral problems and only after all avenues of treatment have been explored. They have three community cat rooms, and 7 acres of land where dogs can be walked, as well as a pen for playing.

Let’s help get this senior guy finally settled in a happy, loving, and permanent home!
Oh you know why this touches my heart. 🙂 I hope he finds a forever home, I keep asking Hubby for a cat that will catch mice and chipmunks and he says no. But then in my area, I would worry about an outdoor cat. Every time I see a poster with a missing small dog or cat, I worry that something got it.
It’s not far….you could just drive right up 91 to get there. 🙂 It really is so much safer to keep cats indoors; we’ve lost too many to the outdoors to think otherwise.

I know, what a big boy, right? Our biggest cat is like 9 lbs so I can’t even imagine!

We hope so too!

Sampson is gorgeous. So sad that his owners couldn’t take him with them. Hope he finds a forever home soon. Sharing.
I just can’t imagine moving anywhere where I couldn’t take my pets. I try not to judge, but it’s so hard. I guess the important thing is to do what we can to find him a permanent home.
