This beautiful boy is Jack, a soon to be 5 year old orange tabby looking for the right lifestyle to match his. Jack was recently surrendered due to some personal issues he was having with the resident cat.
Jack has shown us that he is a super affectionate and loving cat, and that he loves to be pet and enjoys rubbing all over his people!
Jack would do best in an indoor/outdoor, single-pet home. He has let us know that he will get overstimulated and may lash out with too much stimuli, so we are suggesting an adult oriented home that can let him do his own thing, on his own terms.
We are currently feeding him a dental diet to keep his teeth pearly white and healthy as can be. Due to his size, he had a bit of trouble getting the hard to reach spots when grooming himself, and when his matting was groomed, the groomer had noticed some sensitivities along the spine which may indicate some arthritis starting.
He has some weight to lose, which will also help make him more comfortable and mobile.
