This is Sunshine- she is a 11 month old spayed female, HIV/Leuk Neg, has all shots and in very good health.
This is her story- I found Sunshine in the dumpster near my art studio. She was searching for food and was pregnant.
Over the weekend she gave birth in a trash compactor. Someone opened the trash compactor to find her with her hours old kittens. She bolted, and the person left the box her kittens were in on the loading dock hoping she would come back for them….and she did. She lived under a building, flea infested, garbage, dark…but at least warm and dry. And raised her 2 babies.
I fed her everyday under the loading dock and 8 weeks after she gave birth she brought the kittens up to feed. Thats when I trapped her and her family. The kittens have a great home now, but poor Sunshine is still living in 1 room of our home.
I have 3 cats and a dog- she doesnt seem to be fond of dogs but may be ok with another cat. The best home for her would be a quiet home, with someone home a lot.
She suffered living on the streets, and from the way she behaves I believe she was someones cat. She uses the litter box loyally, LOVES TO BE PETTED AND BRUSHED. But needs special attention as she gets spooked easily. She is extremely loving…
I have Suprina’s phone number and email address. If you are interested in Sunshine, or have a lead to someone who might be, leave a message here or contact me at AnneLaurie (at) Verizon.net — click on my name in the righthand column “Contact” list — and I’ll put you in touch.
My personal guess would be that young Sunshine escaped from her original home when she first, as they say, “came into season”, and then couldn’t find her way back. Not the first teenager mother to discover that life on the wild side is a lot more fun to contemplate than it is to live!
