We have no idea why sweet kitty Sue has been waiting to find her furever home now for over 100 days now, what gives?! She’s perfectly sweet, social, and very adoptable, so we’re hoping this is her week to be adopted!

Sue has been living it up in her foster home in the meantime, and has been an absolutely perfect house guest! She took a little bit of time to settle in, but now she enjoys sunning herself in the window, snuggling up on her foster's lap, and spending her days lazing about and taking naps. She has been a very good kitty sibling to her dog foster sibling, and we can't wait for this pretty girl to find her loving furever home!,

If you’d like to adopt lovely lady Sue, please visit our website at hswestmi.org/adoptablecats

Broth pupsicles are DEFINITELY a kennel favorite during heat waves, so if you can purchase any low sodium or salt-free broth for us--OR if you have any clean, gently used standard muffin trays at home you don't need--we'd be happy to put them to good use!

To make a donation, please drop off items in the donation bin in our entryway, anytime during our open hours, or you can donate through our Amazon or Chewy Wish Lists linked on our website at hswestmi.org/wish-list, and have them mailed to us at 3077 Wilson Drive NW, Grand Rapids.
