Please Don't Pass the Sugar

Today is the last day of "Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week," and so I wanted to finish up on a super sweet note -- with Sugar, a gorgeous ginger with special eyes. Whatever you do, don't pass her up!

Sugar is a very sweet, beautiful, timid cat who was rescued from animal control by the nice people at Animal Aid. She is a delicate girl and her pretty little body reminds me of that of a dancer's... she has long legs, a lean physique, a perky little nose and a graceful way about her.

Sugar is perfect in every way, except her eyes (but, really, they are perfect, too!). She has some scar tissue around her eyes from an infection she had before she was rescued, and as it healed up it gave her eyes a unique little shape and squint.

If you ask me, it makes her even prettier and even more delicate looking. She is a beauty, and if you can just look past the scar tissue and into her expressive, sensitive eyes, I think you'll see she's even prettier inside.

If you want more information about Sugar, please contact Animal Aid in Boca Raton, FL. She gets along with other cats and is friendly and sweet around people, even strangers. Please share her story... and THANK YOU ALL for reading this past week and sharing and taking the time to be the change for pets.

I'm proud to be a part of the change, and I hope you are, too.

P.S. I can't say thanks enough to Stephanie Sonju from Sonju Photography for all these great pictures of less-adoptable cats. I think she made them all look absolutely PERFECT (and adoptable!). Please head over to her Facebook page and "Like" it. Good people... you'll be glad you did. :)

P.P.S. There are even more cute cat pictures (and kittens, too!), so keep an eye out on the Cute for them. I can't wait to share!


  1. I brought home a 10-year-old dog from a local rescue a few months ago. I wouldn't trade her for anything. She is the perfect dog for this family. Consider ALL the available pets when you visit the shelter!

  2. Sugar is really cute. We sure don't see anything wrong with her eyes. She is such a pretty color and we hope that she finds a perfect home. Thanks for doing all the wonderful posts you have done with all the great animals that need homes.
    Have a great Saturday

  3. Oh, sweet Sugar...what a gorgeous girl! And what an incredibly sweet face :)

  4. I sure hope someone doesn't pass up that sweet Sugar really soon, what a beautiful lady. Thanks for sharing her story with us.

  5. I am sure that someone is going to fall in love with that sweet face. I think that her eyes look cute.
    I did the same thing that Donna did by adopting a 10 year old German Shorthaired Pointer. I was searching Florida Shelter sites to see if there was a GSP available. When I found a 7 yr old GSP at the Central Brevard no kill shelter, I called to be sure he was still there. He was and I drove out to Cocoa to visit him. When I got there, I got to see him and get more info. He was listed as 7yrs old, but he had been there for almost 3 years. I fell in love and brought him home. He is over 12 now, and a bit "long in tooth", but he is my favorite house dog.

  6. Sugar IS sweet; one can tell just by looking--& I LOVE her eyes! Unfortunately, even if I could afford a second cat, Minnie has convinced herself she's the sole cat who exists; & prefers it that way. Sigh....


You know what would be really cute? If you left a comment... :)
