Barbara found Sunny at her local county animal shelter when he was about a year old. Poor Sunny had been adopted once, but had been returned. Ironically, Barbara had to return him for his neutering when her veterinarian discovered he was still whole. He needn't have feared rejection this time around though, because Barbara was obviously taken with him right from the beginning.
Sunny's disposition seems to live up to his name. From his description, he is a warm bundle of love, and loves to be the center of attention. She lovingly describes him as "One crazy dude." Sunny's story and another photo appear in the Life With a Red Cat Show and Tell.
