Jake kitten (Courtesy post)'s story
For Adoption:
Jake is looking for a loving, indoor, forever home!
History: Jake was a wild kitten born at our Crows Nest Preserve. He was trapped on July 26th. His mama was taking good care of him but finding a loving home will provide a longer healthier happier life. We continue to try to trap the mom to spay and release, however she is a smart one, and avoids the traps. Jake has been with a foster family for six weeks. He has been socialized with people and is doing wonderfully.
Health: Jake is 5 months old and weighs a little over 5 pounds. He has had his first set of kitten vaccinations. His next set of vaccinations is due on Sept 18th. Jake tested negative for FeLV. He has been dewormed and has no ear mites.
Personality: It took Jake a little time to trust humans but now loves spending time with his foster family. He has a great loud purr and enjoys laying next to you while being pet and is just now figuring out that he can crawl up and lay on a humans lap. Jake can still be shy with new people, new surroundings and loud noises, but comes to trust quickly once you get his toys out. He loves other cats, he has three foster cat sisters who are slowly warming up to him. Not for lack of trying on his part. Because he was the only kitten in his litter he does not have a real playmate but he improvises and has a fun time wrestling with your hand. He is gentle with claws and teeth when playing. He has many favorite toys but little fake mice are a tops. It is adorable when he prances around a room holding one in his mouth, so proud of what he caught. He is a good eater and is litter trained. Jake enjoys his naps curled up under a blanket which he burrows under himself, so a snuggly burrow-type cat bed would be a must in his new home.
 A Forever Family: Jake would do best in a home with no small children or dogs. Both can be intimidating to a shy kitten. A home with a friendly cat brother or sister would be ideal but is not a must. He will need patient pet parents who will allow him to become comfortable in his surroundings and with them in his own time. Consistent time spent simply sitting with, talking to and playing with a shy kitten like Jake is the key to earning his trust and helping him to feel comfortable. This will enable him to become the awesome confident cat his foster family has come to know. Jake should not be declawed and must be indoor only.
