Meet Sumo!

Sumo entered The Humane Society of Kent County after being found on the side of the road.  He was only a couple of weeks old and had no mother to nurture him.  He was a little rolly polly ball of fur who was going to need a lot of care.  He was way too young to be kept at the shelter.  Luckily, a foster family took Sumo home and made sure that he ate, and played and grew.  It is not always easy to keep a kitten healthy who has been separated from the mother so early in life.  But Sumo stayed healthy and strong as an ox.

Sumo is now 8 weeks old and ready for adoption.  His favorite thing to do is play!  Sumo would spend all day playing if he could.  He does not particularly like to cuddle and snuggle, unless it is naptime of course.  He has been an only child so to speak and would probably do better with an adult cat instead of other kittens.  Sumo could most likely hold his own if there was a dog in the family.

If you are looking for a colorful kitten to add smiles and laughter to your life, please consider adopting Sumo.  This kitten may have had a rough start, but he is purrrr-fect now and ready for his happily ever after!
