Jesse: Desperate For A Loving Family ASAP!
Update: Jesse has a caring TCR foster home, but is desperate for a forever home. Please adopt this sweet boy.
Do you remember Jesse? This sweet boy was our featured cat in 2010, and we were thrilled when he finally got a home last Spring. Sadly Jesse is now being returned for a third time to TCR and he is in desperate need of an adoptive family. Please share Jesse’s story with all potential adopters/foster families that you know.
Jesse has been through a lot in his short life and the stress has gotten the better of him. Someone declawed him at some point in his life, and then dumped him at a shelter. Since then he has been bounced around from home to home and this has only made his stress and anxiety worse. What Jesse needs is a secure home to feel stable in but his current family leaves him alone for long periods of time – sometimes over weekends. When Jesse feels anxious he urinates outside of the litter box. This behaviour actually started back when Jesse was diagnosed with kidney disease. Although his disease is under control, the behaviour has continued. We believe that in a home where he can be given a tonne of attention and TLC, this behaviour will improve. He may never be “perfect” though, and so he needs a very patient, loving family.
Jesse’s health is in a good state but he should remain on a low-protein veterinary diet for the rest of his life. He is also on an affordable pill called Fortekor, which helps prevent further kidney or heart problems (he has a very minor heart mumour). TCR would also like to try him on anxiety meds and bach flower remedies, in his new home, in the hopes that this will alleviate some of the stress that we believe leads him to urinate inappropriately.
An ideal home for Jesse would be someone who is home for most of the day and who can give him a lot of love and attention. He absolutely loves to be loved and is very sweet. He should not go to a home with young children, or with multiple animals. One or two quiet companion cats would be okay for Jesse, but generally he needs a home where all attention is on him and where he can feel like king of the castle. He has been neutered, vaccinated, declawed and was born April 2005.
Please, please help us find Jessie an adoptive family!
