Poor Jasper hasn’t had the easiest of lives. He came into rescue almost a year ago, having lived rough in a shed for over a year. A bit of a sketchy history from local residents suggested he’d been abandoned as an older kitten when his family moved house and he’d probably sofa surfed for much of his adult life . He scrubbed up well when he arrived here, was neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He found a new home where he was well cared for. Unfortunately his new family also fed and let various neighbourhood cats into the house, and although he’d coped with sharing a room here in rescue. he became stressed with multiple visitors to his new home and in the end decided it was better to return to rescue and try again.
He loves to cuddle and is still young enough to enjoy playing. He’s had a dental recently to deal with some dodgy teeth. Otherwise he’s been in good health. He’ll hopefully fit into any home where there aren’t too many visiting cats. He’s been happy with sensible children in his foster home. He may settle happily in a home with another easy going cat, but would probably prefer space to himself.
He’ll need to stay indoors initially in his new home, but after that would like a safe garden to explore. We always recommend that cats be kept indoors overnight though.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £70 for a neutered adult cat. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you’ll probably find more photos and stories about Jasper here: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and here: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
