Sunshine is doing great! She has adapted well to our family (2 other cats + dog). She has a great appetite and is very energetic when she is ready to play. She does have a sneeze that she hasn’t been able to shake but we’re monitoring it and will bring her into the vet if it doesn’t go away on its own soon (we are used to cats coming home from the shelter with some minor shelter colds and whatnot).

She was immediately comfortable with other cats and while they were hissing for the first week that has pretty much stopped and they have welcomed her to the family.

Our dog is in love with her but is really good about sitting still and letting her come and sniff him rather than him jumping around when she is near. She still gets nervous when he does romp around (he is a big smelly dog after all). She will now even walk past him when he is half blocking the doorway into the kitchen without too much trouble.

Her favorite activities are playing with our squeeky bird and mouse toys, playing with string, watching our fish and napping in the sun.

All in all we’re very happy as everyone is getting along better than expected.

When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces him.
