Facts about Sunset

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Why hello, my name is Sunset, and I’m a handsome short haired black boy with bright green eyes and the glossiest black coat you've ever seen. I came to Happy Cats when my sister Wobbler and my brothers Simon and Garfunkel and I were found outside trying to survive on our own.

I’m the most outgoing of my family, but still appreciate a proper introduction before we can be friends. Once I’m comfortable with you, I’m a typical kitten; I’ve never met a toy or a cat bed that I didn’t like. I can jump over 3 feet in the air for those wand toys!

I’m sweet and affectionate as well and will be the first one to come meet you once I know I'm safe. I will probably do best in a home without small children or very active dogs. I really love all my siblings and will do best if I can go home with one of them so we can help each other be brave. Happy Cats offers a buddy discount so adopting two of us together is easy peasy. Won’t you come meet us to see what a wonderful addition we would make to your family?

I’m only about 6 months old, so I still have a long life of headbonks and purrs to give! My adoption fee is $80, and that includes important virus testing, neuter,

About Happy Cats Haven

About Our Shelter...

At Happy Cats Haven, we take in homeless Colorado cats and kittens and find them new, forever homes. We give our cats the gift of time: time to recover from the trauma of losing their homes and time to show their true personalities. All cats stay here until they are adopted, unless too ill to survive.

Each adoption is hand-crafted, matching our deep understanding of each cat with the adopters' needs and family members for the perfect match. Adopters also have all the time they need in our comfy colonies to get to know our kitties.

Our ongoing support with classes and online advice continues long past adoption. We have found forever families for over 1,400 cats and kittens since 2011!

All our funding comes from private individuals and grants. Eighty-seven percent of all money we raise goes directly to making sure every cat and kitten is healthy, happy and adoptable. For every full-time equivalent staff member, we saved over 160 cats and kittens in 2015. This was made possible by all of our dedicated, loving volunteers.

We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is fully tax-deductible. If you would like to help us continue our good work, you can go to our website and click on the Help Us tab. The volunteers and kitties thank you!

Seniors and other special needs cats include the same signing bonus and are $60. Our kittens are $125 for those under 6 months, including the same package.
