Jerry and his brother Ben were adopted out from a partner rescue as kittens. When their owner had to enter an assisted living facility we welcomed them into our program.

Jerry is a handsome, large, gentle boy. He can be a little shy when meeting new people, but he does get curious and brave enough to come out and say hi. Jerry is full of purrs and headbutts once he gets to know you. Jerry might be scared at first, but he slowly can be won over with some head scratches and might even take a step towards you for more. One of their feline foster siblings isn’t always appreciative of their presence so Jerry (And his brother) are separated from the resident cats. Their foster mom spends a lot of time with them and sleeps in their room a few evenings each week. On those nights both boys jump up onto the bed to sleep with her. They also greet her at the door with meows and head butts, especially at feeding time. While one of the resident cats doesn’t appreciate them, the boys are very friendly towards her the few times they have met. The second resident cat loves to go for “visits” to Ben and Jerry’s room and they will all lay together and groom each other. If Jerry gets scared he chooses to run and hide and never lashes out or gets angry. Jerry previously lived with a senior dog, and would likely adapt well to a calm dog. Jerry will make a loving, calm companion for anyone lucky enough to adopt him.
