Jake's Story...
Jake is a very sweet 3 year old male cat that we took in when his owner was evicted. He has a mild case of CH, if you are familiar with CH. If you are not familiar with CH, it is an abbreviation for Feline cerebellar hypoplasia. It is a non-progressive, non-contagious neurological condition that results in walking and balance problems.

CH cats are known for their “drunken sailor” walk, which is why they’re known endearingly as “wobbly cats.”..It’s important to remember that the cat isn’t sick, weak or hurt; she’s simply uncoordinated. Unless a CH cat has other health issues, their life expectancy is the same as a cat’s without CH. Since the condition is non-progressive, it will never get worse.All that means is that he walks with a wobble. It wont get worse, and he wont improve, and his case is very mild.

Jake lived in an autobody shop his whole life and made out just fine. He lived with 2 dogs, and loved to wash them. His owner says he used to fall asleep with Jake in his lap. He is just a bundle of love and gets along with everyone.

His owner said everyone that came into the autobody shop loved to see Jake and they called him Shakey Jake.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a East Brunswick Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in East Brunswick, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in East Brunswick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Brunswick already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a East Brunswick breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in East Brunswick paves the way for another one to be saved.
