Despite a hard start to life, Sookie radiates such love and kindness. She came to Larimer Humane Society at the age of two with a wire in her jaw, likely from gum surgery that didn't end well, that needed to be removed. The repair took three surgeries before the sutures held long enough for the tissue to heal.
Sookie found shelter with a foster care volunteer at Larimer Humane Society while healing. She’d already been a favorite, and her foster caregiver could quickly see why. Sookie became a constant companion and when it was time for Sookie’s to move out of foster care to find her second chance, her foster mom was in tears.
After talking with friends and family, Sookie’s foster mom decided she was too gentle and sweet to return so Sookie became a permanent member of the family.
Today, Sookie often acts more like a dog than a cat. She lives for belly scratches, and comes when called. Sookie also enjoys following her family around, snuggling and scampering with her cat brother, Howie. Most importantly, she inspires her family daily and reminds them to be thankful.
