Sammy may had just discovered that there is an 'other' pet in house and can't decide if it's friendly or not . I can't recall if Sammy is a cat or a
cat or dog.
I had one cat that would go look behind the mirror for that 'other ' cat. LOL!
I would not worry about. I had dog and started to growl at the 'other' dog
them he realize that he was seeing himself.

He'll probably loose interest in a week or so. What does he do if he sees you in the mirror with him? Sometimes that can be funny too.

One of our cats attacked himself the first time he saw his reflection. Of course he bonked his head right into the glass and then he got mad and stomped off and absolutely would not look in, ever again. LOL

Birds do this too ,they think it'd another bird and fly right at it and hit a window. I saw a blue jay do this and the poor bird dies in my hands .
