Sam's Lucky Day

Sam's lucky day was last Wednesday, March 3rd. He had spent around 3 weeks living with Bennie but we all knew it was time for him to find a permanent home. His wound had healed and he was starting to play and act just like any other kitten his age.

Tuesday, we got the phone call from Sandy in Niceville. She had seen Sam on Alaqua's Facebook page and fallen in love with him. We arranged to meet at PetSmart in Destin on Wednesday afternoon. Sam and Bennie had one last snuggle before I packed him up in his carrier and took him off to meet his potential parent.

Andrea and Leanne met me at PetSmart - we were all excited to meet Sam's new mom and it gave us all a chance to see Sam one more time. We got there a little early and everyone seemed nervous, even Sam.

When Sandy arrived, we knew she was the perfect human for Sam. They really hit it off well and with three other cats and a chihuahua in the house, Sam was sure to have some playmates.

a few days, Sandy emailed to ask what type of dry cat food Sam enjoyed. It seemed Sam was not eating much. I responded with "Meow Mix" but Sandy's next email explained what Sam really wanted. It seemed he was shy and a little nervous so the only way he would eat was if Sandy held the bowl for him. We're sure he'll get past the shyness soon and Sandy reports that his purr machine has started up and he is enjoying a lot of lap time.

Good luck little Sam - you may only have three legs but you have many life-long fans here in Sandestin. We miss you already...


  1. That is a beautiful and heart warming story. I'm so glad to hear of something positive and good in the world of animals. All the best.

  2. Congratulations on getting such a wonderful Forever home, Sam. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

  3. That is so exciting about Sam. And all of you people involved should be very proud of yourselves for the wonderful work you do with the feral cats you take care of. I have a bunch of feral cats here and it is so rewarding to see them not hungry. We are so glad that Sam has a wonderful new home.

  4. Thank you people for making it possible for this little guy to go to a loving home, the work you do is very important!
