Jackson's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Jackson's Story...
I'm Jackson, and I'm quite the distinctive-looking cat. I have the fur of a blue point Himalayan cat with a thin, almost Siamese-looking face and the most crystal blue eyes. Yes, my eyes are a little crossed, but that makes me all the more endearing. I love people, and I'm happy to sit on your lap or just beside you. I very much love to be brushed, and when you brush me, I may show an undignified side . . . the belly-side that likes to be pet and brushed. Oh, don't tell the other cats about that, though! I'm what they refer to as a "special needs" cat because I have some medical issues that are ongoing that require a little extra TLC and care. First, I have a heart condition -- a murmur and a slight arrhythmia that is accentuated when I am nervous or stressed. I also have some early stage kidney disease and kidney stones. We cannot operate, though, because, well, neither one of my kidneys are 100%. So I need to find a home that will make sure I get plenty of wet food (easy on the kidneys) and will monitor me to make sure I'm feeling a-ok. At any sign of potential pain or illness, I need to get to the vet PDQ to make sure that those kidney stones aren't acting up, moving around (and possibly causing a blockage), or some other pesky thing. As long as those stones stay put, I'm comfortable and happy. We're not sure how long my kidneys will agree to keep me going, but I hope it's a good, long time and that I can enjoy every moment I have -- hopefully many months and years to come -- with someone with a big heart and plenty of time to brush me . . .hint, hint. If you want more information about my medical care . . . or if you're interested in potentially bringing me home with you as a long-term foster family member, just contact my friends at Friends.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jackson, a Aldie Himalayan cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Himalayan for sale in Aldie, or seeking a Himalayan cat from a breeder in Aldie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Aldie 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 Aldie 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 Himalayan breeders who help with Himalayan rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Aldie paves the way for another one to be saved.
