In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we’ll be introducing you to an adult furball looking for a place to live out its golden years throughout November. Today, we’d like you to meet Jessie, a kitty who has remained sweet despite having his whole world turned upside-down.
When his owners moved in September, they couldn’t take Jessie along. The 8 lb. senior cat was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas in Dallas, but the cheerful cat hasn’t allowed shelter life to get him down.
“He spends his days lounging around and hanging out with the other cats in his condo,” says communications specialist Stephanie Daniels. “He enjoys getting his chin scratched and would make the perfect companion for any family.”
The dapper looking black cat, whom Daniels’ describes as “a big-time cuddle bug,” is friendly, calm and litter box trained. “Jessie is such a sweet, laid back kitty,” she adds. To read more about him, click here.
If Jessie seems like the purr-fect fit for your family, contact the SPCA at (214)742-SPCA.
