*SAFE* 09/11/15 – Meet Sunshine: This kitty was appropriately named! She is sweet and sunny, and appreciates petting on the head and body. She has a fracture in the left carpus and will require follow up vet care for it, but she remains as affectionate as ever. Sunshine is waiting for her chance to show you what a good napping buddy she can be!
