Samantha is a calm, gentle, and very, very affectionate little gal. She loves cuddling, being brushed, and curling up next to you whenever she can. She has perfect litterbox manners and although she's about 12 years old she's still spry and enjoys playtime, especially chasing her bird toy around the house. She will also happily wear a harness and leash and enjoys being able to lay out in the sun. She seems to have some hearing loss, although it doesn't slow her down at all. She has previously shared a foster home with both cats and dogs, and after a careful introduction has gotten along great with the other cat in my home. She's a truly lovely girl and would make a wonderful addition to your family.

As part of SAS' thorough pre-adoption care, Samantha had a full veterinary exam and was diagnosed with kidney disease. To help keep her feeling her best, Samantha has a special diet of wet food and receives extra fluids. She's very easy to give fluids to and SAS volunteers can help train adopters on the best way to manage this part of her care.

Samantha's personality type is SIDEKICK, and here's how she describes herself:
Like all sidekicks, I'm just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don't go looking for trouble but I'm no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.

This wonderful cat qualifies for the Senior Citizen Discount program: senior citizens or disabled adults with a 'Gold Card for Healthy Aging', or a 'FLASH' card, issued by the City of Seattle, may adopt an adult cat (at least six years old) at a special price. There will be no fee for the adoption itself, and the licensing fee will be half-price!
