Meet Jupiter: A "Jumpin' Jehosaphat" of a Cat
Each week we feature pets available for adoption from C.A.R.E. at Evanston's Animal Shelter.
Of all the high-jumping cats at C.A.R.E., tuxedo kitten Jupiter is the one that shelter volunteers are convinced has springs in his little legs. Jupiter loves to play and chase and play some more.
Here's what Jupiter has to say for himself (if he could talk!): "I have a little black heart on my nose and BIG FEET. They say I may end up being a big kitty when I'm fully grown, so I'm eating a lot to get big and strong. I do get a little timid in new situations until I've figured everything out, then once I get comfortable, I'll take over! I love playing and interactive toys are my favorite. I'll jump really high for a cat dancer or fleece or feather wand! Come to the shelter to see for yourself!"
- Domestic Shorthair, 6 - 8 months old, Black and White, Neutered male.
- Jupiter should be fine with other cats and dogs.
- Jupiter would do best in a home with children 10 and older.
- Jupiter is microchipped, neutered, and has had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines.
