Jake is a friendly, outgoing cat. He is friendly with other cats and likes to be with people Jake has lived with children under 6 years old, but he mainly avoids children - he likes adults better because they are usually more gentle with him. Jake is usually a very laid back cat.
Jake's adopter said that Jake was happy until a baby was added to his home. She said he became very upset with the new baby, and for the first time did not use his litter box. Jake was turned into a kill shelter for having a behavioral problem -- no medical issues were checked out. However, since he was chipped to All Paws Rescue, the shelter transferred him to his current foster mom. When she took him to the vet, the vet found he had a very large bladder stone, which was treated by diet. It is likely that the bladder stone had more to do with his sudden dislike for his litter box than the baby since the vet said that Jake was in a lot of pain and immediately prescribed some pain medicine for Jake. While Jake is OK now, he will need to continue eating a diet that keeps the stones from forming by controlling the PH of his urine. That is Jake's only special need.
