Sunshine - Resident Guard Cat
Sunshine is the resident mascot, mouser, and mooch of Spectrum. He was born here 14 years ago! To Sunshine, the best part of “working” at Spectrum is the staff. They feed him, pet him, and give him treats throughout the day.
There’s nothing Sunshine loves more than a good nap! Whether it’s in his personal office armchair, the padded cardboard box upstairs, or just on someone’s arm, nothing beats a good nap.
In his off time, Sunshine protects the yard at night and fights raccoons. Any new strays that are found are placed under his protective paw.
Little do the staff at Spectrum know, but two other buildings in the neighbourhood also feed Sunshine!
