CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Approx Age: 4 years
"Jessie is a very refined kitty, with impeccable house manners. In the nearly three months that Jessie has been living with me she has never chewed wires, knocked things off tables/shelves, gone outside the litter box or otherwise gotten up to any of the mischievous acts I usually expect of cats! She is the most darling sweet little lady, and loves nothing more than to jump up on the bed with you for some head rubs and affection, though she isn't a cuddler!
When I first brought her home she was very timid and unsure. She spent most of her time under my bed, however she has really come out of her shell! She is definitely the kind of cat who picks one person to be hers, but has come a long way in warming up to strangers. Jessie has very firm boundaries in how she likes to be handled, and has gotten very good at expressing those boundaries appropriately, usually choosing to bat you away with a gentle paw and leaving. That being said, she can now be picked up, checked over, and have her nails trimmed without much fuss! Every once in a while she gets the zoomies and races around the room. She particularly loves shiny boots!"
Jessie's ideal home placement would have older children (12+) and as the only pet to get all the loves.
