Beautiful Sumba was approximately four years old when she found herself admitted to Devore Shelter in February of 2018. She had previously been spayed so we know she did belong to someone at some point in time. We rescued her initially for one of our rescue partner rescue groups. However, later that same year, the rescue group made the decision to close it’s doors so Sumba was taken into the Kitty Devore Rescue foster care program to ensure she remained safe and well cared for.
In the Marathi language spoken in East India, Sumba refers to the coir of the coconut; the fibrous material found between the hard internal shell and the rough outer coat. It’s the softest part of the coconut husk. Being a gorgeous lynx point medium haired lady with a plush and gorgeous coat, the name suits her. And like a coconut, our Sumba can be a little tough to break through initially. She has a tendency to be very shy when meeting new people but, if you are persistent, eventually, she reveals the delicious sweetness within and can be incredibly friendly and loving. Sumba is currently a little too voluptuous and so not the most playful kitty. She’s currently on a weight loss program to restore both her lovely figure and a more buoyant energy.
If calm and serene but loving and devoted is what you’re looking for in a kitty companion, look no further than Sumba!
Sumba was adopted August 13th!
