Sugar, a 2-year-old domestic short hair, is up for adoption at the Warren County Humane Society in Front Royal.

FRONT ROYAL — Sugar, a 2-year-old domestic short hair, is available for adoption.

Christina Livingston, a kennel attendant at the Warren County Humane Society, said that Sugar was brought into the shelter back in September as an owner surrender.

“When [Sugar] was brought in, she had a neck wound on the front of her neck the size of a baseball,” Livingston said.

Livingston said that the shelter didn’t know what caused the wound on Sugar’s neck.

“We kept her in the back for a while until the spot healed up,” she said. “Now, she’s happy and healthy!”

Livingston said that it took several months for the infection in the wound and the wound itself to go away. She said that when Sugar was brought in, she was six pounds. Now, she’s 10 pounds.

Livingston said that Sugar would be great in any home. She said that Sugar loves people and she’s good around other cats. Livingston said she wasn’t sure how Sugar would handle being around dogs or kids, especially younger kids.

“We had her in the back, so we don’t know how she’ll act around kids,” she said. “Just like any cat, she will let you know when she’s had enough attention.”

Livingston said that Sugar loves to cuddle, likes to play with her toys and to give people kisses.

“[Sugar’s] a wonderful girl,” she said. “She’s as a sweet as sugar.”

Livingston said that, while Sugar’s neck wound has healed, there’s always a chance for it to come back. Outside of that, Sugar has no other health issues. She has been spayed and has been micro-chipped.

The adoption fee for Sugar is $15.
