Totally Lovable Jerry

We all LOVE our gentle and adoptable friend Jerry. His adorable face is a window into his super sweet nature. Take a look for yourself.

But it's not just his sweetness that has endeared Jerry to all of us. Perhaps just as much of everyone's affection for him stems from how far he has come since arriving at PAWS. When he first came in as a stray, he would just cower in the back of his cage. We would rarely see his face, since he would do everything to avoid making eye contact. Quite simply, he was overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of the shelter.

But with love, kindness, and consistency from his human friends, Jerry has learned that the world isn't such a scary place. He loves being pet and snuggled, and it is utterly heartwarming to see how he looks forward to our times together. See that bed he's in? It's still his "safe" spot, but as soon as he hears a familiar voice, his head pops out like an adorable jack-in-the box.

This past weekend, he actually ventured out of his bed in his excitement about getting some quality time with us. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’•


Check out this quick video for a sweet glimpse of what that quality time entailed!

 

Jerry is about 10 years old, would do best in a quiet home with patient humans who are willing to gain his trust. He would be a great companion for another adult or senior kitty in your home. His only special need is a urinary health diet. Jerry also has FIV, but it's important to remember this does not mean he can't live a long and happy life! According to Best Friends Animal Society, "FIV-positive cats can live normal lives, both in quality and duration. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. But if they’re well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets." FIV cannot be passed to other cats through casual contact, or by sharing food, water, or a litter box. Nor can it be passed to people or other pet species.

Come meet Jerry today, and fall in love (like we all already have)!

❤️ Jerry!
It’s such a delight to see Jerry’s head pop up as soon as he hears his buddies enter the room. He has the softest shiny coat because of all the volunteers brushing him in his cave when he first came to PAWS. He’s such a good boy.
Beautiful photographs, Kev!

Aww, Jerry is adorable! He looks a bit like he could be a cousin of Sam Sam.
I also love how he has been able to come out of his shell at PAWS and learn to trust people and bring his loving and affectionate side. He will make a wonderful companion for someone, hopefully soon.

Cleo said...

Oh boy, that video got dad going! What a sweet youngster Jerry is. It's a good thing we don't live near you. It's also a good thing I rule this roost and wouldn't even consider another feline in the house. Here's hoping Jerry gets snatched up right quick into a fabulous furrever home. Happy weekend, y'all.

What a handsome boy! Who can see that face and read that story and NOT fall in love? I totally see that look in his eyes that Bear had when we met - he's just dying for someone to be his.
