Meet Jacques (FCID# 05/07/2018 - 47). Weighing in at 20 pounds, Jacques is a mini panther. This boy has been waiting since MAY for a forever home. Jacques is the type of cat who is difficult for us to find a home for a few different reasons: his size, his color (black), his FIV+ status, and his diagnosis of irritable bowel disease (under control and manageable.)
But, please, keep reading.
Jacques has been in a foster home where he has literally had to watch cat after cat get adopted. Each time an adopter comes to meet "the other foster", Jacques thinks they are there for him. He's rolling, he's purring, he's talking, he is doing EVERYTHING he can to get them to take him too. Sadly, they never do.
Jacques is an AMAZING, FUNNY, LOVING cat. I promise you, if you adopt Jacques you are adopting an amazing companion not only for you and your family, but also your pets. Jacques LOVES CATS! He grooms them, plays with them, and snuggles with them. Normally with cats, there needs to be an adjustment period, some warming up on both ends. Not for Jacques. Whenever a new cat arrives, he runs over and licks them on the face, happy for a new friend. Based off his laid back personality, we believe he would be good with dogs as well.
Jacques always greets his foster mama in the morning with grunts and a croaked meow. He is very social and will be sure to entertain all your guests. He loves to sit on the couch and watch TV with you. He loves head pets, back pets, and especially BELLY RUBS! He will literally roll onto his back like a dog and beg for belly rubs.
Jacques is around 5-6 years old and doesn't dabble in play too often, although he occasionally likes chasing the feather wands and wrestling with his kitty pals.
Jacques is a happy cat who is always purring and genuinely excited to interact with people. We have noticed the more time he's spent in his foster home, the sadder he has gotten. We think each time an adopter comes and take "the other foster" it breaks his heart a little more.
Please, give Jacques a home for the holidays. He doesn't want to spend this Christmas alone.
