Sunkist NK5858


Hi my name is Sunkist & I came into the care of the rescue after being surrendered with my sister. Thankfully the rescue was contacted who wasted no time in finding a suitable foster carer who was able to provide us with somewhere safe to 'crash-land' until forever homes are found. 

Bubbly, bright, fruity orange goodness. What's not to love? I'm a curious little young lady with a stunning white coat, adorned with ginger, brown and grey highlights- thus aptly named Sunkist! Worlds apart from my timid former self, I'm now a more relaxed, affectionate kitten with ooooddles of love to give to the right home You see, I'm a bit of a cuddler. There's nothing I'd rather do than curl up on someones lap and snooze the better part of the day, away. Not down for a cuddle? I'm afraid you don't have much of a choice in the matter. If you don't oblige, well.... you can expect a very vocal protest. I'll take anything I can get... Pats, cuddles, kisses, embraces, strokes, snuggles, rubs, nuzzles- that all sound good to me! When I'm not catching up on those z's, you'll find me fully engaged in a play session with my siblings, which, would be ill-advised to interrupt. We will tackle, bite, smack, whack and chase one-another until we are utterly exhausted- with another lap snooze session to follow.

So now the important stuff. What sort of home will I suit? I can be wary of new people & shy in unfamiliar environments. I'll need plenty of patience. Cats? I lurrrveee other kitties. I will thrive in a home with a feline friend or 2! Dogs? While I haven't previously lived with canine companions, I have proven to be non reactive when meeting them from the comfort of my pet carrier. It likely won't be love at first sight however- the rescue is confident that with time, I will adjust well to their company (ideally no energetic doggos). Children? I'm great with children, however would prefer a home without children under the age of 5.

If I sound like I the sort of soft- fizzy drink you might be into, please drop the S.A.M. team a line.
