Sammy is an energetic 4-year old male cat. He is a playful sweetheart who loves to chase his own tail and cuddle up on the nearest lap. He's extra chatty and playful in the mornings and makes for a great morning coffee companion. 

When Sammy isn't taking naps or cuddling with his foster family, he loves sitting on the windowsill and watching the birds. Sammy's favorite song is Jellice Songs for Jellicle Cats from the musical Cats.  If you get him in a particularly good mood he might even sing (meow) along!  

Sammy is FIV+, which means that his immune system might have a harder time fighting an illness.  Like with HIV, there is a long period (years) where an FIV+ cat is asymptomatic.  FIV+ cats can live long, healthy lives if they are kept indoors and receive regular veterinary care.  Here are some articles to help you understand FIV in cats, and if you have questions an FFGW volunteer who has had several FIV+ cats is happy to chat with you.
