Plenty of my friends are looking

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
JERSEY is a spayed female, Black and White Tuxedo Domestic Shorthair with beautiful Green Eyes. The shelter thinks Jersey was about 1 year and 2 months old when she arrived on April 28, 2007. She does love to be petted and is still a kitten herself with her playful antics, but is a little timid. Jersey is playful, has very gentle soft paws, and is very sweet and loving. She is looking for a good home, is it yours?
BACKGROUND INFORMATION on Bi-Color or a Tuxedo Appearance cats.
A black-and-white bicolour cat is often known as a tuxedo cat or a Jellicle cat. To be considered a “tuxedo”, its black coloring should be solid through out, with white limited to the paws, belly, chest, throat, and possibly the chin. The tuxedo name is just that. It should appear as if the cat is wearing a tuxedo.
All cats are genetically tabbies, possessing one of the genes that cause striping or ticking. However, tuxedos possess a gene that suppresses the tabby markings. In addition, they carry a white-spotting gene called "S".
The "S" gene can produce anything from a totally white cat to any one of the bicolor variations. When a cat with the "S" gene also carries the "B" gene, the second color is black and a tuxedo cat results.
Here are some famous Tuxedo Cats: 1913 Krazy Kat -early comic strip tuxedo, 1919 Felix the Cat-cartoons “the wonderful, wonderful cat”, 1945 Sylvester -"looney tunes" tuxedo, and 1993 Socks -former presidential pet.
Starting the adoption process you need to be 18 years or older, complete an application http://www.petprojectfoundation.org/catadoption.pdf, be interviewed and it is strongly recommended all members of your household have interacted with the cat to make the best match for everyone, the cat you wish to adopt be an indoor cat, and be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. Understand we reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.
