For longtime supporters of the SPCA of Hancock County, Spark may be a familiar face, and it is a lovely face!

This 5-year-old tortie is mostly black with gorgeous flickers of orange … thus her name, Spark. Some people claim she lost all her niceness when one of her back legs was amputated, but with Spark, you simply need to know that when something goes wrong, it’s your fault. If you can accept this and apologize to her, she rewards you with head-butts and purrs, and she will be the first kitty to greet you in the morning.

Spark desperately needs a family that is willing to take the time to get to know her and accept her for who she is. She repeatedly has been returned for litterbox issues which have ONLY resulted from stress or untreated UTIs. The moment she’s at the shelter getting the treatment she needs, she uses her litterbox perfectly.

She wants to be the only pet and needs someone who is patient and willing to pamper her. She likes kids but needs respect so small children may not be the best fit for her.

Spark, Hancock County SPCA

Spark is sure to kindle a deep and unique kind of love in someone’s heart. She just needs help finding that special someone who is willing to take her for who she is and love her unconditionally.

Could Spark be a Christmas kitty for you?  Please make an appointment to meet with her and find out!
