ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – Meet Sammy, the Suncoast Humane Society’s pet of the week.
Sammy is a 5-year-old Domestic Shorthair weighing 14 pounds. He has a soft, white coat and golden eyes. Sammy is much like Mighty in that he enjoys the company of people of all ages as well as the company of dogs. He’s been well trained, comes when called, can climb a bunk bed ladder and can also open door latches. He is a classically curious cat and an excellent hunter who will alert you to an intruding spider or other unwanted bug. Sammy, like most cats, feels comfortable in high places. He has a very pleasant disposition and enjoys attention.
To meet Sammy, stop by the SHS Adoption Center at 6781 San Casa Drive. For more information, call 941−474−7884.
