Bonus Boy!

Yep!  We got us a bonus for good behavior.  His name is Sonny, and boy is he cute!

Sonny is roughly 4-5 months old and was turned in to the shelter after having bitten someone.  I'm not clear whether it was his owner or he was found as a stray.  Regardless, biting kitties are a no-no, so he was quarantined for 10 days to monitor his behavior.

Well, I can tell you without reservation that no one - I mean no one - saw any sign of a bad kitten during his time out.  About the only thing anyone witnessed was a super duper little dude that would practically leap into your arms when you opened his cage.  Well, he actually did do that a few times. 

He'd purr like crazy, rub against your neck and face and flip around with such enthusiasm he'd nearly flip right out of your arms.  This was in no way a bad kitty.

After the 10 days were up, he was vaccinated and put on the list to be neutered.  As luck would have it, our primary provider of spay/neuters was relocating and had been closed for a week.  Surgeries were backed up and Sonny was going to have to spend yet another week in a cage.  Unacceptable.

So last Thursday I brought him home to stretch his legs until his surgery appointment on Wednesday.  Boy, did I get a surprise!  Not only is he just as sweet as I already knew, this guy is full of crazy energy and has been giving the other residents, both young and old, a run for their money. 

But nary a nibble.





So who wants a perfect tabby kitty?  (I know, that's redundant.)  He'll be ready for adoption at the Humane Society on Thursday!  Come and get him while supplies last!

  1. Aw Sonny! He was probably just playing, or maybe teething, bless his cute heart. When my oldest started teething he was gnawing on everything including my fingers. Hope Sonny gets a wonderful family soon!

  8. I want him! I already have too many kittens and I live on the wrong coast, so I know I'm out of the running. I think he had bad owners who lied. Soooo cute!

  10. Thank you for helping him avoid kennel stress...he seems to be kittenishly busy. Please thank your girls for putting up with him, between his adorable naps!

  11. Thanks for taking him in and helping him find a home. He'll make a great addition to a loving family. Watching him play makes me tired. He needs someone who can keep up with him. I can't see him biting anyone intentionally maybe it was an accident or love nip.

  12. Oh he's cute!! Thank you for helping him out. People frequently make things up when they turn in animals.

  13. Wow! You can tell from the way he moves that he's a special cat. Very athletic and graceful.

    Have you asked sister Jean if she wants an energetic companion for Alvin? And how is Alvin, btw?
