Adopt Yoda

Dear Yoda. This sweet old guy was brought in by Animal Control after his owner had passed away. They had found him in a dark garage with no signs of food or water. There were two resident dogs who were found inside guarding the mans body. Well, as it turns out, when the next of kin arrived they gladly took the two dogs but did not want Yoda. It broke our hearts to hear this. So now, Yoda is here with us. Living his life in the senior room at Sammie's. Yoda is a really sweet boy. He has bright eyes and for his age, his teeth are in good condition. He is a bit on the thin side but that's to be expected with senior kitty's. If you have a fondness for the older cats, please come and meet Yoda.
