Sparkle, the Cat of the Day
Name: Sparkle
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Domestic short hair
Home: British Columbia, Canada
   This is my lovely cat Sparkle. I named her that because when I saw her, I know she was a diamond in the rough and knew that with love, she would indeed Sparkle! She's approximately twelve years old, we don't know for sure, and while her breed is technically domestic short hair, we like to say she is a blue-eyed blond.

    I adopted Sparkle from the SPCA a few years back. She was very sick with eye infection, respiratory infection and ear infection...but with lots of love and attention, Sparkle greatly improved within a week and continued to recover over the next few weeks.

    Sparkle is a special needs kitty. She has recurring ear infections, a heart murmur, inflammatory bowel disease as well as advanced kidney disease and she is deaf. She receives fluids daily by injection that she tolerates fairly well. She also has bad arthritis.

    Sparkle is one of the sweetest cats I know. She has a gentle nature and brings such joy to my life. She is very entertaining and makes us laugh all the time.

    Sparkle loves the Christmas tree and likes to sit or lay under it. In the summer time, Sparkle loves to sleep outside in the sun. (supervised of course!) She is an indoor cat but sitting in the sun I think makes her very happy.

    Sparkle has a very gentle, sweet nature. She gets lots of hugs and kisses daily! I love my Sparkle!
