Birthday: 12/2/1988 | Member of Sparky’s Family

Gentle, sweet Sparky loves blankets, nesting, and sitting in the sun. The group of girls he came to the sanctuary with take good care of him, but they let him know when his big, loud displays start getting on their nerves. He loves attention from his caregivers – especially getting his head scratched – and likes showing his affection by grooming them too.
