Pet of the Week: Sampson

February 17, 2023 - February 23, 2023

Meet Sampson! Sampson is a two and a half year old domestic shorthair looking to find his forever home. He is neutered and currently residing at Riverside Rescue in Lunenburg, Vermont.


Sampson arrived at Riverside from a home with several other cats. He's comfortable living with cats and children, but he's unsure about dogs. "We don't really know," Sharon Eaton, the shelter's founder and manager, said. "He's fine as the dogs come in and out of here, but there were no dogs in the home he was in." Sampson is looking to be an indoor cat.

In the house, Eaton says you will never be in a room without Sampson right by your side. He loves attention and will follow you around the house.
