In June of this year, I experienced the tragic loss of my sweet cat, George. He was hit by a car and by the time we found him, it was too late.
A few months went by and the house just didn't seem the same without a kitty to cuddle with and roam the house for mice. I thought, "I was prepared to have a cat for the next 15 years or so, why shouldn't I give the gift of a home to a cat in need?" and started looking on Larimer Humane Society's webpage for adoptable cats.
When I first saw Samson (formerly known as Chimley) there was something about him that drew me to him. I asked to see him, and that was it. He was so happy to be loved on, playful, and such a sweet boy. I was told he was surrendered for urinating in the house, but after reviewing his medical examination it turns out he had a UTI that was treated and I brought him home the next day, no issues to report! Although he had never been around dogs before he seems to tolerate them more and more each day and I have a feeling that he will soon call them friends.
Although George is irreplaceable, Samson has made his spot in our little family and we are happy to love on him for the years to come. He loves fuzzy blankets and his "backyard" time- he sunbathes every morning, brings me grasshoppers, and has even caught a mouse already! Thank you for all that you do, these animals deserve the greatest of homes.
