What It's All About

Sugar is currently learning about human contact while residing in my upstairs bathroom. She is recovering quite quickly from a respiratory infection - the first night she came to our house, her breathing sounded like my husband snoring at night and an asthmatic wheezing during an attack. What a terrible time for a tiny kitten only 1 1/2 pounds and 6 weeks of age. She curled up in my hand and cuddled up to my chest breathing quite hard, and then, suddenly fell fast asleep.

The next day, it was as if we had a new kitten. Several doses of antibiotics later, she was romping around and more interested in her environment - hiding, playing with toys and very interested in sneaking out the door! We continue to play with her, and let her know that humans are her source of food, entertainment and safety.

Today she looks even better, her eyes are cleared up, her breathing is even better and she is so much more playful. We will take her back to the vet soon for a check up, and will start to look for a special someone who will take Sugar home.

There are many Sugars out there. At the Animal Care League, there are so many kittens, they are filled to capacity. Do you have room in your heart and your home for some Sugar? Think about it? There is Sugar waiting for you. So many people have worked so hard to make sure they are ready to go home with just the right person. You may be the person Sugar is waiting for!


  1. This is great!

  2. Thank God for your care and support! Our family referred to this little cutie as "the baby with the sore eye". We are extremely happy to see you have rescued and saved her for a loving family to give her a home! To anyone out there considering adopting this beautiful kitten; The family of cats she came from are sweet, trusting and social. Please don't pass up on a wonderful pet like her!
