Sue Sioux, a beautiful calico cat and our official mascot, will be turning 20 on January 1 and we will be celebrating throughout the coming year.
Sue Sioux came to Cat Care Society back in 2003 from a hoarding situation. She was adopted very quickly and her new owner adored her. Sadly her owner had to have surgery and was no longer able to care for her. So Sue Sioux was returned to CCS in 2006, and we learned that unfortunately she had also been declawed. From 2006 through 2009 Sue Sioux was adopted three more times and returned for various reasons. She came back the third time from the shelter where she had been surrendered - they had located CCS through her microchip. Cat Care Society will always take a cat back that it has adopted out..we never give up on finding a good home for a cat! By this time Sue Sioux had developed some health issues such as early kidney disease and some behavioral problems possibly due to the declawing. These understandably made it harder for her to get adopted.
During her years in the shelter at Cat Care Society, Sue Sioux became our mascot. Everyone knew her when they walked in. They would tell her how beautiful she was and what an amazing face she had. Sue Sioux loved the attention.
In 2018 the staff decided that CCS would be her forever home. She was moved to the administrative building where she could roam freely and live out her days in a home with people who love her. Sue Sioux gets lots of attention, a sunny porch, and all the cozy beds she could ask for! She also gets the occasional cheesy popcorn piece (her favorite snack).
As you can tell, Sue Sioux is deserving of a great celebration in honor of her 20th birthday! Please watch for upcoming news of her special events.
