Foster of the Week: Sunshine Malala


I am your sunshine, your only sunshine.
I’ll make you happy when skies are grey.
You’ll always know, dear, how much I love you.
I’ll never take my sunshine away……

Hey there! I’m Sunshine Malala.

I’m kind of a PSA cat. A two-fold PSA cat, actually.

Firstly, postpartum psychosis is REAL and it’s SCARY. It’s even scarier when you’re an animal and your humans don’t know why you’re being so terrifyingly violent. That’s how I came to Zoe’s. I had a litter of kittens, my hormones didn’t re-balance properly and the result was anything but friendly. I was surrendered because I was unpredictably dangerous and my family didn’t know what to do. I was so scared. I didn’t know what was going on – inside or outside my body.

The people at Zoe’s didn’t know if I could be saved, but they refused to give up on me until every possible avenue had been exhausted. I was booked for a spay, as all Zoe’s animals are, with the hope that it would help.

Which brings me to my second PSA: SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR ANIMAL FAMILY!!

Truth be told, I really didn’t need to have kittens and I didn’t need to suffer through postpartum psychosis. Neither would have happened had I been spayed as soon as possible. This all could have been prevented with a simple procedure.

Thankfully I am so much better now. I am sunshine personified. Well, feline-ified. I am happy, I am not scared or aggressive anymore. Other than my aggressive pursuit of affection and attention. I am quite vocal about my desire for affection; so if you want me to be quiet, you need to love me until I am satisfied. Also I must have chin scratches in the morning, I will head butt you square in the face until you give them to me. It’s best to just give in and love me.

My foster parents will tell you I’m a treat thief, but I disagree. The treats ARE for me and all I am trying to do is eat them. How can a cat thief something that is FOR THEM? I don’t get it. Humans are silly. They are the ones who bring the treats home though, so I let the silliness slide.

My foster families have been so great, I owe them my life, but I am now ready to move on to a forever family. I have few requirements, the main one being the only sunshine in your life. I don’t like dogs and I can take a long while to warm up to other cats. I’m not saying I could never be friends with another cat, maybe I just haven’t met the right one yet. Other than that, I require love and hugs, scratches and treats.

If you can give me that, I will be your sunshine forever.
