DOB: June 2015
Description: Orange Tabby
JACKSON is a sweet, friendly boy who loves being around people. His favorite thing is to snuggle up next to you on the couch, especially loving one-on-one time with you in the early mornings. He also enjoys looking out the windows and sunbathing when the sun shines through the window.
Jackson is moderately playful and likes to entertain himself with kitty toys. He is a curious cat who likes to watch what you are up to and explore new spaces. He is also a 'social eater' who sometimes waits to eat until you sit or stand next to him. Jackson also likes to have a choice on where he sleeps at night - sometimes on your bed, sometimes in another part of your home.
Jackson needs a home where his human buddies are around to give him attention. He needs either a couple or a family with older kids who are around at least part of the day (who either work from home at least part of the week, or where kids are home after school). He needs more people interaction than what a single person or couple could provide where they work outside of the home every work day.
We recently introduced a young cat, Pumpkin (posted separately), to Jackson's foster home to help us determine if Jackson needs a feline buddy. Jackson was a little cautious at first and it took him a little while to adapt to Pumpkin. He is doing pretty well with his new buddy - the boys do chase each other around a bit, but Pumpkin is a little too playful for Jackson.
We think Jackson would do fine in a home with a low-key, friendly cat. But he doesn't necessarily need a feline buddy as long as his forever home has people around to keep him company. His home also needs to be quiet to moderately active to suit his personality.
This sweet boy came into our care after he was abandoned by a college student at the end of the school year. Jackson is lucky that a roommate took it upon himself to make sure Jackson found his way into our care.
