Facts about Tara (Sookie's Kitten)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 42922
  • Hair: Short
"Tara" is a beautiful female kitten who arrived at the HSOV on June 23, 2016 along with his mother (Sookie) and his siblings (Alcide, Lafayette, Sam, and Tara) after they were found in the Lower Salem Ohio area. The kittens were estimated to be 2-months old at that time. Momma "Sookie" has raised her babies to be happy playful youngsters and made the best of a bad situation being in a small cage instead of a proper home. "Tara" has a shiny black short smooth coat with a small patch of white on her chest, a long tail, and a darling Kitten face. "Tara" will surely melt your heart just as she has ours. We have listed her as a 'Special Needs Kitten' since she is blind in her left eye. "Tara" had a severe eye infection when she entered our shelter and in spite of extra TLC and antibiotic eye ointment, she lost the vision in that eye. This little sweetheart doesn't realize she looks any different than her siblings, and she has maintained her happy, playful personality. "Tara" was given vaccinations and wormer on June 23, 2016. She was spayed on October 5, 2016 and was also given rabies vaccine. "Tara" weighed 5.8 lbs. on that date.
