Is Sampson spayed or neutered? yes
Is Sampson up to date on vaccinations? yes
Why the animal is being rehomed: Sampson needs to find a calm environment with someone who will love on him and let him lay in the sun. I currently take in respite kids, and he does not handle the stress of consistently changing people very well. He's been my baby for almost 3 years, but he knows who his owner is and is protective.

What should the next family should know about Sampson: Sampson absolutely loves to lay in the window and soak up the sun. He also loves toys and playing fetch. He would do extremely well with an elderly person/couple who needs a companion. He enjoys snuggling up at night with his "person" and will sleep until the morning. He has never once used the bathroom outside of the litter box. He truly is an awesome cat, he just can't handle the constant changing of people in my house. I feel terrible when he gets so anxious/stressed and really want him in a home where he will be totally loved for who he is.
