Arrival Story:
Little Sparrow's story begins when he was 8 weeks old. He was brought to a feral cat spay/neuter clinic I was volunteering at. Little Sparrow was neutered, vaccinated and placed back in his trap. After the clinic was over the cats were brought out in there traps and placed on tables waiting for there trappers to come and pick them up. When Little Sparrow was brought out I noticed he had diarrhea. He was having a hard time waking up from the anesthetic, so I held him and rubbed him trying to stimulate his little body to snap out of it. He was so young and cute I decided to take him home and see if I couldn't socialize him and find him a home. Half of the car ride home was spent petting and rubbing him as he slowly woke up. Then it became very clear that he was awake and wild. I had to put him into a kennel for the rest of the ride home. When he got home he started treatment for the diarrhea. The vet I asked about him said that he should be just fine after 2 weeks of treatment. He was, and started to become more and more friendly which each week. He gained weight and his fur became shiny and beautiful. I named him Little Sparrow after a very special kitty Captain Jack Sparrow. Captain Jack was rescued from a very bad hoarding situation (along with Isaac, Truman, Muppet and over 700 others) When Captain Jack was rescued he was feral just like Little Sparrow and just like Little Sparrow he came around to loving people. They were also twins in appearance. Sadly Captain Jack had contracted Feline Leukemia while living in that horrible place. He recovered and lived in the loving care of Best Friends Animal Society for a while, but just before I got Little Sparrow, Captain Jack lost the fight against Leukemia and crossed the rainbow bridge. I named Little Sparrow in remembrance of Captain Jack. I feel that Captain Jack would be happy to know that he is remembered and loved, and that Little Sparrow can lead a happy healthy life with a name honoring him. Little Sparrow is such a beautiful boy, pictures just don't do him justice. He is a healthy happy little guy, living life and loving it.

Little Sparrow has had a long bumpy road to becoming the cat he is now. He has always been a shy little sweetheart but now I finally think he is outgoing enough to steal himself a new home. He loves my other foster Isaac and if they could be adopted together that would be wonderful but Little Sparrow would be very happy in any home with another cat pal even if the other cat isn't wild about him. Sparrow loves being pet and hanging out on the couch. His favorite treat is oddly enough mealworms although hes all to happy to accept any treats he can get his paws on. If you have an extra spot on your window sill and room in your heart for this little lover he would be so happy to start the first day of the rest of his life with a new family and home of his very own.
