BIRTHDAY: Spring 2021
ADOPTION FEE: $75
We've finally done it: we found the world's friendliest kitten! Jack does not know a stranger. Anyone who comes to see him is welcome to pick him up, give him kisses, and hold him all day. Jack wants nothing more than to be cuddled and hugged, carried around, and scratched on the head and back. He follows people around until they pick him up and give him attention. Surely you've met cats like this before, but they probably didn't have to work quite as hard as Jack just to walk around.
Jack is what we call a "wobbly" kitten: diagnosed with CH (cerebellar hyperplasia), he has a tough time controlling his back legs. He's been examined by two vets and both were perplexed by his condition: typically, CH comes with neurological signs like the classic head wobble. Jack just has problems with those back legs, but exams and x-rays didn't revel any problems. So the CH diagnoses may not be accurate, but it's what we're going with. Either way, Jack is a very special boy who is just differently-abled than his feline friends, although he doesn't seem to notice and they don't seem to mind. He loves to play and wrestle, and would benefit from having another young cat friend in his forever home, especially one of the boys he's growing up with in foster care. If not, he should be in a home where someone is home most of the time. He'll also need to be able to have his food, water, and litter box in a single-floor space, since stairs are problematic for him at this time.
This very sweet fellow is one of our all-time favorite fosters. He will need a special family to care for him, but they will be luckiest family in the world.
