Hello from sunny New Jersey! Actually, after a lousy day yesterday, it’s turned pretty nice here. But I didn’t want to leave my audience hanging, so I thought I’d post an adoptable kitty for y’all today.
I ran into Jackson Browne (12, male Siamese) at a pet store in SF. They loan out a room to a small animal shelter, ‘Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue‘. Jackson here is one of the rescue-able animals, and I have to say, he is a real love bug. I walked in and he meowed at me like a rusty door hinge and immediately came up and started rubbing against me. He soaked up love like a little kitty-sponge, and I’m pretty sure that if I’d been willing to hang around for an hour, he would have been delighted to sit in my lap for the entire time. Such a sweet kitty!
How does such a sweet kitty end up in a shelter? Well, it seems that his elderly owner passed away recently (of cancer). And Jackson was found in rather a bad way: starving, dirty, lethargic, probably dehydrated too. But they’ve fed him up a bit and he’s fine now. Just looking for a new home. I would totally take this cat, he’s an utter sweetheart.
By the way, if you post a comment in the next few days, don’t be surprised if it takes up to an hour (or more if I’m in bed) to appear on the blog. I’m currently suffering a terrible spam attack, and a lot of it was getting through, so I’ve turned on moderation for all not-already-approved users. (If you’ve posted a comment here with the same name and email address before, you’re approved.) I wish the anti-spam software from the company I work for worked on blogs, but alas, it doesn’t, and the one that I am currently using seems to be letting me down rather badly. Hmf.
