Facts about Gumdrop

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello, I'm Gumdrop! I'm one of the Christmas Candies here at Happy Cats, all deep dark yummy little catolescents ready to win your heart. I'm the one with the single white eyebrow whisker. We came here when we were found abandoned outside with our mommy.

I'm the middle child, not the most outgoing like Jellybean, but not the most shy either. I really appreciate a proper introduction once we meet, but once that's out of the way, you'll find that I'm a very sweet little kitten. I'll be ready to turn on the purrs at the drop of a cat toy!

I love to play like any little kitten, as long as I don't have to compete with the party animals for toys. I'll need a little more encouragement, but with a lot of love and a little time, I'll blossom into a sweet companion. I will probably do best in a quiet home, without active dogs or small children.

I can be adopted for $125, which includes important virus testing, spay, microchip, vaccinations, food and litter starter kit, a month of free insurance and a free vet visit voucher. I'll need to be adopted with one of my siblings to help me adapt the best, but there's always the Buddy Discount to help with that. Won't you come and see what a sweet little girl I am?

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!

Our Adoption Process...

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.
