It has been a few months since we brought Sugar home but we thought we would send you a quick email to let you know how he is going.
Sugar was not the cat I was looking for when I first went to the Cat Protection Society, our local vet had suggested I get a kitten to go with our older cat Lady Marmalade as she has a motherly personality and this may upset another older car. However Sugar ran out to meet me and started meowing. To make sure I came back another day with my partner and the same thing happened again. In many ways I felt like he had chosen me, not the other way around. So I spoke with staff to see how they thought he would go with another older cat and was reassured because he was 18 months old it would be ok. I then spoke to our vet who agreed with the staff at the cat protection society.
After bringing Sugar home and allowing time for him to adjust to his new home environment. We slowly introduced him to his new best friend Lady Marmalade. Lady Marmalade took pride in showing Sugar around and making him feel welcome. Lady Marmalade has had a positive influence on Sugar and he will generally follow her lead. They are inseparable.
We love Sugar dearly and he definitely has personality. He loves company (animal or human), pats, snuggling, is playful, calm, happy in nature and is talkative.
I do think it is good for future cat owners to consider a young adult cat and the initial advice from our vet in purchasing a kitten to pair with an older cat is a suggestion not a rule of thumb. We couldn’t be happier with Sugar and it makes us happy to see the cats happy.
Many thanks to the staff at the Cat Protection Society for their advice, support, love and care in assisting felines find there forever homes.
