CollingwoodToday, in partnership with the Georgian Triangle Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


This is Sammy and Bruce. Sammy is a very beautiful, but VERY shy girl who is looking for her purrrfect person and Bruce is  a very handsome three-year-old guy. And a pretty good size at about 15lbs!   

Sammy has decided that Bruce is her boyfriend and spends allllll of her time hanging out RIGHT beside him. They get along very well and we think she's kind of deemed him her safety blanket and protector! They would love nothing more than to find a home together!  

Bruce was pretty shy at first, but is starting to actually seek out attention and you can hear him purrr and purrrr when you visit him. What a difference already!

So, if you decide to pick him, just remember that it might take him a few weeks to get comfortable with you and his new home, but he promises, if you give him the time he needs, he will blossom into the sweetest boy!  

Sammy is going to be a kitty who will likely take quite a long time to come out of her shell. We hope that won't deter you toooo much, as she truly is a very sweet girl!

The GTHS humans haven't quiteeee got her purring just yet, but she’s at a point where she will  (nervously) accept some nice scratches from them if they go nice and slow with her!

She finds the company of other cats VERY comforting and actually helps her with her confidence too! You've probably noticed she has lots of photos with Bruce; she goes pretty much whenever he goes (yea, yea, she’s a bit of a stage 5 clinger I guess hehe) but she can't help it because, well, first of all she has a big crush on him! and second, she just feels safer when she’s by his side.  

Sammy and Bruce are both FIV+ cats! Don't worry though! That doesn't mean they can't live a long and happy life with you! They don't require much more care than any other kitty cat. All they need is a vet visit twice a year to make sure they are in their best shape! Just ask one of our adoption councilors to explain how awesome FIV+ cats are, we give the most love!  

Their adoption fees are by donation and include neuter, up-to-date vaccinations, dewormer, and microchip.  

If it’s not too much to ask, Sammy and Bruce would LOVE to find a home together.
