Sunday's Shelter Sweetheart: Jim

Looking for a kitty who is really into snuggling?
A handsome tuxedo boy who's totally in touch with his sensitive side?

Well look no further.

Meet Gentle Jim!

"Hi, I'm Jim, and I am a people purr-son!

I LOVE people!!! I love to meet people and I love to spend time with people. And as you can see from my video, I especially love to cuddle people! I guess that's why my nickname here at the shelter is "Snuggle Bug."

Yes, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE people!!! I do have to admit, though, that I'm not so much of a cat purr-son. In fact, I used to pretty much hate other cats.

That was before I spent some time here at the shelter, though. Since being here, I have learned that other cats aren't all that bad after all. Mostly, they're just like me--friendly and loving sweethearts just looking for their forever home.

I'm trying to be patient, but it seems like it's taking an awfully long time for my forever people to find me. Maybe it's because I'm mostly black, and shelter animals who are black seem to have a harder time getting noticed. But I do have awesome white whiskers and toes--plus the cutest little dickie under my chin!

Or maybe it's because I have something called FIV. I don't know why that would hold anyone back, though. It doesn't hold me back any, that's for sure. I'm happy and healthy today, and I expect to be so for many years to come. We FIV kitties normally live long, healthy lives, just like anybody else.

All we need is to be kept indoors and have regular wellness checks and vaccinations just like other cats do. I just know there is a special someone out there who needs a snuggle bug like me.

Someone who will look past that silly FIV lab test and see the awesome people-lover behind the label. When that person does finally find me, then all our dreams will come true!!!

Gentle Jim"
