Check out my interview with Madison, Foster Coordinator at the Annex Cat Rescue to learn more about Jimmy!
Meet Jimmy! He had a rough start to his first year of life, recovering from injuries likely due to a motor-vehicle while struggling to survive alone outdoors. These poorly healed injuries left him with a ‘funny' walk but haven't held him back one bit since being indoors. Jimmy still loves to run, jump and play especially with other playful felines so he will need to be adopted into a home with at least one other friendly cat.
He also enjoys the company of people, accepting pets, belly rubs and even engaging in play with laser pointers or wand toys. His environment will need to be taken into consideration as he cannot jump higher than 2 ft, so cat trees, chairs and couches will need to be strategically placed to help him access sunny windows or your bed.
Jimmy will need someone experienced with former street/rescue cats, who understand his early experiences left him needing to learn how to trust humans. Jimmy will start out shy and even choose to hide in your presence and it should be expected that he will need time to adjust to his new environment and people. Having a friendly cat companion will help him get there, and his love of treats (and food!) will help you earn your way into his heart. With time and patience Jimmy will even let you clip his nails and clean his ears, between lots of pets of course.
Potential adopter(s) will need to be committed to keeping Jimmy on a mostly wet-food diet and at an ideal weight (ie. no free-feeding for this boy) as his affected joints will have to be monitored throughout his lifetime.
Jimmy must be adopted as a buddy to a friendly resident kitty.
