Sweetpea was a feral kitten that had never been touched by humans. Trapped with a humane trap and transferred to our shelter, she now enjoys a warm, comfy place to call home --- for now! We would love for Sweetpea to be adopted to someone who can work with her a little bit more to bring her out of her shell. When we first got Sweetpea we couldn't pet or hold her without gloves. Now we can hold her and pet her and she will get to purring in no time. She still needs a little work, so if you like a challenge and want to help change the life of this sweet girl, email us or call 865-740-2704
