He did get some matting here and there. I'm pretty sure she cut some knots off his hiney a few times, but the amount of brushing Sampson allowed was enough to keep his coat in decent condition. He was quite a cat. A tough guy, he ruled the neighborhood. Other cats literally would follow him home and hang out in the yard with him. When Sam decided visiting hours were over, he'd chase the other cats down the street.
He was ok with people, your typical cat that minded his own business and you could only touch him when he said it was ok. He did like to spend time with us though, he would always be close by and follow us around. But he didn't care to be picked up too much etc.. Kids were a different story though! My niece and nephew could grab him however they wanted and lug him around all over the place and he couldn't have cared less. He was an old man too when I first met him. I can't imagine he's around anymore. He was a great cat!
That's nice he allowed it! I may try waiting till Luna's cuddly too lol but oh.boy, that's hilarious about the other cats! Hahaha Luna used to get a lot of visitors, or I guess suitors, before she got spayed.
Not really so much anymore though since she got spayed a few years ago (she just turned 5 in August and she got spayed at almost 3) and since being indoors the last few months. We do have the occasional cat though but rarely now. Plus I think most of them were neutered anyway or girls. Luna is a typical female, you pet her on her terms too. But she's not mean about it. She just runs away haha she likes ro be close lately too. She's actually a pretty social cat. She'll come close but she'll run or she'll just turn her head away like "i just wanna lay on the chair of the arm. Stop petting me" and if you annoy her she'll leave. But she will come lay on my lap. She especially loves to cuddle at night though. She'll lay for hours. I'm her favorite though. She loves my dad too and we may be almost equal but she loves me. Anyone else besides us and she runs more or is more.mad. and the.night and morning cuddling is only with one of us. She sometimes likes being picked up but usually not. But aww, too bad he's not around.
he seems like a great cat
