My first weekly feature is a handsome mancat named Jimmy 2 Toes. He's Mom's new "shelter love" so we need to find him a forever home before she starts getting any thoughts about bringing him here to live with us.
Here are some facts about Jimmy 2 Toes, or J2T as the volunteers refer to him:
- He is 1 & 1/2 years old.
- He has been at Wayside before, but was returned after his family discovered the children were allergic to cats.
- He is front declawed.
- He gets along with other cats.
- His adoption fee is $50.
Jimmy got his name because he only has two toes on his back left foot as the result of some kind of accident. It doesn't seem to cause him any pain though and he gets around just fine.
He does seem to be bothered a little by his recent declawing, though. (He was declawed by his adopters.) He sits up on his haunches quite often and this could be his way of taking the pressure off his front feet. The volunteers call it his "prairie dog imitation" and it is kinda cute looking!
J2T is a really cool cat. He enjoys being petted and loves to hang out with you, but he's not crazy about being held. I can't imagine not liking a good cuddle, but that's just me, I guess! He's pretty playful too. Here's a video that Ryker's mom filmed and my mom narrated:
Please spread the word that Jimmy 2 Toes is looking for his forever home, he deserves a loving family.
