Snuggly, Sweet, Delightful

Sunny Park is sure to brighten your day! She LOVES people and could spend the whole day soaking up pets and love. She snuggles as closely to you as possible, happily making biscuits as she purrs away. She loves kisses and gently rubbing on your face and hands!

Throughout the day Sunny will follow you around and will curl up under you as you do your chores. She is a sunny little shadow. She likes to rest her face in your cupped hands, nuzzling them gently. She even accepts hugs!

We know that Sunny Park loves all humans and kids are no exception! She's lived in family homes before and was remarkably patient and gentle with young children. She's happy to introduce herself to strangers too, coming right up to visitors and giving them gentle kisses!

Sunny has lived with other cats before and prefers more chill cats who match her peaceful outlook on life. She will snuggle with them and will occasionally groom them as well!

Sunny Park has such a sunny disposition you would never know she came to APA! with a bullet in her spine. As a result, she is unable to use her hind limbs normally. But, she is very mobile and she's able to scoot along at impressive speeds. She is even able to open doors!

Due to her injury, Sunny is incontinent and needs her bladder to be gently squeezed (aka manually expressed) a few times a day. It's pretty straightforward and simple, and APA! will show you how! And doing range-of-motion exercises and balancing exercises may help her mobility over time!

Caring for an incontinent cat is easier than you may think. Want proof? Check out this video: bit.ly/CatExpressionDemo

Sunny's previous foster describes her as "...literally the sweetest cat I've ever met. All she wants is to be pet and for you to lay with her." And she said expressing her was easy. The foster also discovered that Sunny is a big foodie and loves wet food and Churu treats. So, you want to stock up on yummy snacks!

Sunny Park shines so beautifully. Her heart is pure, her love is genuine and she wants nothing more than sharing all she has to give with her forever family. Contact APA! for information on how to care for Sunny Park, and how to make this happy girl a member of your family!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
