Happy Tail: Sammie at Home

Sammie came to Black Cat Rescue as a more mature feline after she lost her person.  At 10 years old, some may have considered Sammie to be “unadoptable.”  But we knew this kitty had much more love to give, and after only a couple of months in foster care, she was able to find a wonderful forever home!


Here is what her new person has to say about Sammie: “Sammie is quite a character. She knows how to open drawers and cabinets, and she is always checking what’s inside. She has claimed her own bedroom, too, and sleeps in the middle of a big antique double bed (usually on top of my clean clothes when I dump them there!)

She has her moments sitting by the front door looking out and other moments scaring my little parakeets. I have to cover the ‘keets at night now (something I never did) because that’s Sammie’s favorite time to stalk them. She loves to greet people that come to visit – not shy! And she talks and talks. Like I said, quite a character!”



There are many reasons why adopting an older cat can be incredibly rewarding, and Sammie proves them all!  Congratulations Sammie!

    Great happy ending! Senior cats still have lots of love and laughs to share with us.

  3. My 11 year old that we adopted a few months ago is now our favorite of the bunch. Old cats are wonderful!
