Our Point Pet of the Week is a big mush ball...a stray who was left outside to fend for himself.

Sam needs a safe place to call home. He is a friendly, loving, and affectionate cat...a lap cat who would love to curl up with you for a nap and look up at you with his dreamy big green eyes.

Sam would do best as an only pet since he likes to be the king! He is fantastic with people of all ages and would make a great family pet.

If you would like to meet Sam or any of the animals available for adoption at the Monmouth County SPCA, adoption hours are Monday - Friday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday Noon - 5 p.m at 260 Wall Street in Eatontown.

You can also visit the Homeward Bound Adoption Center inside Freehold Raceway Mall to find a wonderful dog or cat to take home with you Thursdays through Sundays during mall hours.
