Meet Sammy

Add to favourites

When you have as much personality as this stunning girl, you get three names. Professor Sam McGonagall originally came into care at the EK BCSPCA as a stray momma with three kittens back in the summer of 2019. At just a year and a half, she was welcomed into a foster home with her kittens and once they had left the nest, she was ready to live her best cat life. Unfortunately just two short years later, McGonagall has found herself back in our care by no fault of her own. Her family for the past few years had renamed her Sam and when she came back into care with a few extra comments for staff, it was only natural to extend her name to include her original name, her adopted name, and her title. Like many of us, Sam has had a quieter few years due to the world pandemic. This has left Sam feeling a little socially awkward. Sam is a particular girl who has lots to say and lots of love to give, but doesn’t always know how to express herself. Professor Sam McGonagall likes to approach her ‘furriends’ on her terms. While carrying on in depth conversation about her day, Sam loves to brush past her people and give them head boops while enjoying full body pets. If Sam is feeling vulnerable or at risk of something scary, Sam will protect herself with a hiss to communicate how she is feeling. Since she is working on her social skills, Sam is looking for a home with no small children, fur-siblings or loud activities. Sam also has some magical talents. Her best trick is door handle jumping and excessive speed, also referred to as door rushing by staff. To make sure Sam has the safest possible life ahead, she will require a home dedicated to keeping her busy and always be on high alert at the front door. If you need a little magic in your life, submit an application today, Professor Sam McGonagall is ready to teach you the definition
of ‘purrfection.’

In order to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
