The adoption fee is waived for Jacobina and ALL Desperate Housecats!
Jacobina is a very special girl! She`s a `tripod`, meaning she only has three legs, and she is now in our Cactus Cats program for shy and sometimes prickly kitties who need a little extra guidance and marketing. Jacobina is currently working on building trust with humans through our special clicker training process called Cat Pawsitive. We don`t know a lot about her history since she arrived as a stray, but we continue to learn what we can about her at the shelter. Since she is 3 legged, this puts her at a disadvantage outdoors, so we recommend an indoor only or secure indoor/outdoor environment where no potential predators can access her. Jacobina is also FIV+ which is not a big deal, it just means she needs access to medical care if she gets sick.
We would currently describe Jacobina as a `Saguaro Cactus Cat`. The Saguaro is independent and free. They don’t need much from you beyond food and shelter. This cactus cat may never be your cuddle buddy, but they still make wonderful companions, and they often get along well with other cats!
