Sonny is a Domestic Shorthair - Orange & White Tabby Mix. He was rescued in Moorestown from a litter of 7 siblings. Animal Control was called to trap kittens only 3 weeks old whose mother was a neighborhood stray cat. With my quick intervention at the shelter, I was able to retrieve 4 of them, while a neighbor found two in her yard and called me. Two days later the last one (Sonny) was found and I had all 7 together. They were bottle fed untill they learned to eat on their own and were litter trained. Three were put in foster care with a human mommy to give them attention and love individually. The smallest girl of the litter died while still bottle feeding. Three of the kittens were returned to the shelter at an adoptable age but were euthenized without my knowledge. I vowed never to return any to the shelter again. His other little sister was adopted and then his bigger brother. Sonny sustained an eye injury the night after being neutered in the cage together with his brother playing instead of resting. My veterinarian tried everything to save Sonny's eye, from antibiotics to his own blood used as a serum. Sonny seemed to be responding well until the pressure in his eye built up causing his eyeball to get enlarged. He now is on medication and eye drops trying to bring the pressure down and save his eye lens from being removed in surgery. He needs a loving home and someone to play with throughout the day. He is a very active kitty in spite of his eye condition. At night he cuddles up in bed and purrs to sleep. Sonny's favorite thing is chasing his tail and catching it. 11/16/11
