Facts about Sookie

  • Breed: Calico
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Meet Sookie! This beautiful lady was found pregnant and living on the streets in Alton, Illinois in April 2016. She gave birth to a litter of kittens in foster care and now that they are grown she is ready to find a home of her own.

Sookie's markings resemble chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, yum! Her light green eyes are very pretty. She is a petite cat, especially compared to her slightly younger male companion. She does an amazing cat stretch that any yogi would be proud of. Her foster mom describes her as playful, snuggly, and a bit of an attention diva.

Sookie is a sweetheart who likes to play but also does well in your lap. She has somewhat of a gentle princess air about her. A favorite pose is when she's sitting up like a statue and wraps her long tail across her two front paws, so proper! Sookie doesn't really like to be picked up but she will come to you most of the time when you beckon her. She will spend a long time on your lap or cozying up nearby, in your chair, sofa, or bed.

Sookie's ideal furever home would be one where she gets plenty of love and attention. Currently she is a great companion to an 18-yr-old H.S. graduate who often shares her bed with Sookie. They spend time playing and napping together.

Sookie is very adaptable to new surroundings but our suspicion is that she would do best in a home that does not currently have other cats. She took a little while to warm up to her foster brother Mr. Bojangles, and Sookie continues to appreciate her own space. However, the two now get along quite well. They keep each other entertained and active. Sookie, being older by a few months, seems to dictate the terms of their relationship. Sometimes she's just not in the mood for playing but other times they will race around the house together or curl up on the same chair to nap. Sookie and Mr. Bojangles would ideally like to go to to their new home together since they get along and are both FIV positive.

Cats with FIV can live long, healthy lives, and can even coexist with non-FIV cats. You can learn more about FIV here:

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.

Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
