Meet Sutton!


Meet 2-year-old Sutton! Who knows why some animals get adopted and others get overlooked? This cute-as-a-button calico had a hard time at first. She was surrendered to us shortly after giving birth to four adorable kittens! Left behind mothers have a special space in the hearts of our staff members at the HSKC. This is an epidemic…cats coming in toward the end of their pregnancy or already with babies. They do their duty, no matter how stressed or scared they are. Then their babies move on at eight weeks so that they can have an amazing future. These female cats are so resilient. They still manage under the worst of circumstances to bring joy to our lives. Sutton’s kittens have since been weaned and have been placed in foster homes.  Now it is her turn to find a loving home!

This gorgeous kitty is luxury for the lap! She has beautiful calico markings and a colorful personality to match. She’s a petite girl, weighing only 5 pounds, and is utterly shimmering in her silky coat of many colors! Everything about her is lovely from her adorable face to the tip of her tail. This young lady is very chatty and loves to follow you around. She will rub on your legs and tell you all about her day. Sutton is not a cat for the inexperienced or faint of heart cat owner. She is very demanding and when she wants love she will do everything in her power to make you pay attention to her. You’ll fall in love with her friendly and sweet nature.

Her favorite toys include crinkly balls, catnip toys, and the little balls that roll in a track. The ideal type of home for her is a quiet home without other animals. She will make the right person an exceptional feline companion for life because when she gives her heart it will be absolutely and fully given unconditionally. If you are interested in this affectionate kitty, scoop up this beautiful flower before someone else does!
