“Happy birthday to this beautiful guy who would love a nice and quiet house to live out his golden years!”

This cat is known as quiet but nice. He loves hugging and being touched. He is very curious and loves to observe everything that happens.

The staff put some effort to find him a forever home. The shelter has now rule before adopting Sammy, and that rule is his future owners must throw another birthday party when he turns 20 on June 15, 2022.

After finding a permanent home for the cat, he continued to receive adoption requests from a wide range of individuals who were inspired by his story.
