Meet Sugar (bonded To Ginger)

Add to favourites

Sugar, and his brother Ginger, came into the BC SPCA after their previous owner sadly passed away leaving these two handsome gingers looking for their second chance at a loving fur-ever home. These brothers are extremely close to each other and can often be found curled up together. They will need to find a home where they can stay together as they are quite bonded.
Sugar is a very friendly and affectionate guy who loves attention and cuddles. If not curled up with you he can usually be found cuddling with his brother. Sugar can be a bit chatty and will enjoy having long meaningful conversations with you. Such sweet boys have so much love to share. Sugar also has a very playful side and loves playing with his little mouse and other toys or chasing the laser pointer around trying to catch that elusive red dot. Play time is a great way to help Sugar keep active as both he and his brother are a little on the plump side. A proper diet and exercise will be important in keeping them fit and healthy. **PLEASE NOTE Sugar was diagnosed with a medical condition called Eosinophilic Granuloma which can cause ulcers on the lips and mouth. He is currently clear of ulcers but Sugar may intermittently break out with the ulcers and need treatment with corticosteroids when this happens. Thankfully this is a very cheap and affordable drug but an adopter will need to be prepared to monitor Sugar for breakouts and take to the vet as needed, as well as potentially give the drugs orally. It is possible this condition will disappear over time but he may also have it for life.
Ginger and Sugar are used to living with other cats in their previous home so could be able to get used to new feline friends with proper, slow introductions. We’re not sure if they have ever been around dogs. The home they previously lived in was a quiet, senior home so a very busy, loud home with young kids might be a bit too much for them as they can startle easily. They might be able to get used to an older child who is calm and cat savvy with some time to adjust. Overall they’ll make wonderful, loving additions to a home. Staff will be happy to discuss Sugar’s medical history and personality with potential adopters. We recommend an adopter also talks to their vet about Sugar’s medical condition to be prepared for potential future care.
A behaviour counselling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.

Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/how-to-adopt/ for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.
***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application. We are not able to call all applicants.***
