“Well, now what? I see another human. Hi, there, person, I am Sammy. Give me a minute while I check you out. You don’t seem to have food or water or toys, but – you seem to like me. Interesting. Very interesting. I know – the sign says ‘stray” – but I will tell you I am much more than ‘stray’. I am Sammy of the round, round face and the deep, deep soul.”
“Notice my tabbiness, sure, but notice especially the wizard mark on my forehead. Ah, perhaps I am from the moors of auld Scotland or the forests of olde England. Perhaps I do magic. Perhaps I sit in trees and grin until, all of sudden, there is nothing to be seen except the grin! Perhaps, you see, I am the Cheshire Cat. Or, perhaps, I am Sammy, young boy man from somewhere in present-day Minnesota.”
“I sniff you. I sniff you again. That is the way a cat learns. He sniffs you – do I sniff friendly – or dangerous? Do I sniff good – or scary? This cat does not just come flopping up to you like some silly dog. Sammy – this cat – is smarter than that. I am assessing your genes! Guess what? Guess what?”
“You pass the sniff test! Oh, yes, I smell good. I smell friend. I give you my best head bump. Head bump! Head bump! I think I’ll even roll over and show you how cute I am. Cute I am! Am I cute! I am cute! I’m OK! You’re OK! May I come out and play, please? Would you look at that yellow mop! I could do cute cat things with that mop. Oh. I can’t, huh?”
“Well, now what? I know what! Adopt me! Take me home. Pet me, play with me, tell everyone how cute is Sammy with the round, round face and the deep, deep soul. Listen, if you’ve got $120, we can do this. I’ll come out and play. You’ll come out and play. Sammy says this is what, this is now. Adopt me!”
If you'd like to know more about me, just stop in at the Adoption Center to meet me or leave a message for my secretary at 651-642-5900 ext. 3. She'll call you back.
