The kitten was badly burned in June in a horrific case of animal cruelty.
Now, animal care officers want to find her a home.
The Fort Wayne animal care and control is taking applications early next week.
They're holding a lottery drawing, and say by Wednesday, someone will add a new 'Sparkle' to their family.
Animal care officials say she's come a long way.
"Yes she is, she's doing very well. Sparkle is a phenomenal kitten and she's feisty as ever," says Animal Care and Control Deputy Director Amy Jo Sites.
They recovered her in June with serious injuries; badly burned paws, fur and whiskers- and barely alive.
Investigators arrested Matthew Jerome and charged him with two felony counts of animal torture and one count of animal cruelty.
Now, nearly four months later, Sparkle has made what they call a full recovery.
"Her fur has grown back completely, so she is a traditional domestic shorthair. Black and white... Verses what appeared to be a tortoise shell, because of the burns that she sustained. And her whiskers are fully-length again," Sites says.
Monday and Tuesday, Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control is taking adoption applications.
Sites says it will be a lottery draw- and one lucky family gets to take Sparkle home on Wednesday.
"It is a great story for the community to see that though it was a terrible ordeal, something good is coming out of it," Sites says.
Animal care officers say she is as feisty as any other kitten- very playful, and despite what happened to her, likes people.
Right now, Sparkle is in the care of a foster family, and officers say only the family selected will get to meet her.
"Sparkle is unavailable for comment at this time, but I'm sure she's anticipating her debut again, fully-furred and long whiskers," Sites says.
