GREY TABBY; Large, golden luminous eyes.

HISTORY: Sprite was a local cat and part of a feral colony. He managed to make his way inside a local country store where he was trapped and brought to CFC. He is not feral.

If my name makes you think of a flighty fairy like or elfin being, then I’m here to offer a correction. I’m very much an all boy cat, a likeable, feet solidly on the ground guy. I was a member of a local community cat colony until I made my way into a country store and was brought to CFC, but I’m about as far from feral as you can get. I was frightened initially, but now I’m one happy little fellow and a lover of the attention lavished on me by people. Gather me up into your lap and your reward will be soft purrs, my happy dance, and sometimes quick little kisses to your hands. Being in a lap was strange at first, but it’s become to feel more and more like home. I’m big on locking eyes with folks and while reveling in being stroked and petted I’ve been known to even drool a little bit in the sheer joy of the moment. I say, what’s a little drool among friends? It’s said that I’m beautiful outside too, with my big luminous eyes and the bull’s eye markings in my down soft silver tabby fur. You have only to see my face, brimming with goodwill and kindness, looking up at you to understand why folks here consider me such a treasure. I get along famously with all my CFC roommates and just generally have a pacifist philosophy. My volunteer friend says, “Gentleness, thy name is Sprite.” He may have been watching too many old movies, but in all modesty I think you will agree once you visit and we become friends.

December Update 2023: As our good friend SPRITE has matured, he has determined that perhaps other felines are truly his best friends.  More recently,  as we approach our handsome fella he is more apt to shy and run away.   It’s not all a sad story though as he has a big group of kitties that truly love his calming, soft personality.   Sprite is often spotted relaxing with such kitty friends as Iggy, Callie, Click and Tawny on the top of a condo.  The group gets into a big ball of snuggliness and boy do they look content.   Carefully and slowly make your way up on a step ladder and you might luck out in experiencing Sprite’s velvet to touch fur as you sneakily pet him along with his up close and personal friends.  Gentle and very sweet natured, Sprite comes in peace and adds a nice calming element to his kitty room.  He doesn’t ask for much and seems content to quietly be a sidelines kitty while the others put on the big show for others to enjoy.
