Meet Sonny, the handsome orange and white gentleman who has faced life's challenges with grace and resilience. Born in December 2015, Sonny first joined our family in December 2020, and his journey since then is nothing short of inspiring. Sonny's story took it’s first turn when he was rescued, thin and sickly, from a dog fighting ring. He spent several months under our care, where he not only regained his health but also tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). However, his FIV status never deterred us from finding him the loving home he deserved. In February 2021, a compassionate young couple embraced Sonny's FIV+ status and adopted him, assuring us they would provide him with all the love and care he needed. Sadly, due to family conflicts, this promise was broken, and Sonny returned to us in August. Sonny is not just a cat; he's a real sweetheart and a big, lovable teddy bear. He thrives on companionship and will quietly follow you around as you go about your day, settling down next to you when you take a seat.

Recently, we learned that Sonny has kidney disease, but he's stable with a special diet to maintain his health. Sonny has shown immense gratitude for the love he's received, and he deserves nothing less than a happy home and secure love for the rest of his life. If you're ready to open your heart and home to this incredible survivor and gentle soul, Sonny is more than ready to become a cherished member of your family.
