Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-pound cat

March 15th 1999


He loves to go outside and walk around in the yard with me! He would like to sneak through the fence and explore other yards if he could.

Little kids freak him out

Favorite Toy:
Anything he steals from me such as hairbands, pencils, small stuffed toys, shoelaces... also a yarn ball he thinks is his girlfriend!

Favorite Nap Spot:
In a livingroom chair.

Favorite Food:

Plays "fetch" and "hide and Seek"


Arrival Story:
I got him for my birthday from my best friend., who was also my roommate at the time. I had wanted a pet for so long and on my birthday she spontaneously asked me, "Do you want to go get a pet?" I originally wanted a puppy, but we lived in an apartment and the security deposit for dogs was a lot higher than for cats, so I decided to try a cat. We wanted a girl cat because we thought a girl would be quieter. The pet store guy told us this cat was a girl. We bought her a purple collar with a bell. When we took her to the vet for her complimentary visit, the vet told us, "This cat is a boy!"

Sammy-Joe thinks he is a dog, having spent a lot of time around my parents' dog Chopper.

I'm gonna be sad

Dear everyone,
Wanna hear something so sad? My Mama is leaving me! :(
You see, my Mama is going to move to another part of this state, to go to school. She was gonna bring me. She kept telling me we were going to have an apartment together, just her and me, and not Grandma or Grandpa or Chopper. She even told me she was going to get me a kitty treehouse for the livingroom so I wouldn't get bored!
Then she went to the town where we were going to be living. She found out that it wasn't very safe. There seemed to be a lot of crazy people there. People were always setting things on fire and stuff. My mama was afraid something bad would happen to me. She was really upset and scared. Then she decided that she would leave me with Grandma and Grandpa for the year.
The good part about this is, I love Grandma and Grandpa's house! They have a yard and I can go out for walks on my leash. There are a lot of rooms and I am allowed to walk around in all of them! I can sleep wherever I want, but I also have my own bedroom, with a bed in it, that nobody else goes in! (Except when there's guests... then they sleep in my room, and I have to sleep with Mama.) Plus I like to play with the dog, Chopper. We are always together!
But I am gonna miss Mama! And she is going to miss me. I know she'll miss me, because I keep on seeing her crying.

With love,
from Sammy-Joe


Happy Birthday?

Dear everyone,
Mama says it's my birthday! Can you believe that? I think she's making it up!
Two days ago Mama put my carrier in the bedroom and put it on the floor. She unzipped it. But she never put me in it! It's been sitting there, wide open, ever since! Something is definitely up!

With love,
from Sammy-Joe


Cuddle Cat

Dear everyone,
Hi! My mama is really happy because I've been so cuddly lately! Last night I kept coming into her room and getting next to her on the bed to stay warm! My mama also put a bunch of stuffed animals in my bed for me. For a long time I didn't even notice them. But lately I've discovered them, and I think they're my babies! I carry them from room to room with me.
I'm also getting a lot friendlier with strangers who come to the house. The other night my Grandma had a bunch of people over. I didn't hide in my room. I went downstairs to the living room to investigate. I climbed all over the people and meowed at them! Mama said, "Well that took seven years, didn't it!"
Mama says to tell you to come see some cartoons she drew about me on her website! You can go to and click on the link that says "Sammy's World!"

With love, from Sammy-Joe
