Adopt Jimmie

About

Jimmie's approximate date of birth is April 9, 2021. He is neutered, age appropriately vaccinated, tested negative for FIV/Felv and he has a registered microchip. His adoption fee is $325.00 + tax. Oh, my gosh... what can we say about Jimmie! He is just the most amazingly unique kitten ever. He is SUPER playful and everything is a fun game for him. He has TONS of energy now. Maybe because he spent his tiny kitten time not feeling so well. He came to rescue with what sounded like raspy breathing. After antibiotic treatments did not resolve this issue, further diagnostics revealed that Jimmy had a large sinus polyp. This polyp was successfully removed, but immediately after the surgery, Jimmie went in to cardiac arrest. Fortunately he was able to be revived, but it was apparent that he then had neurological deficiencies. With time and much medical care, he began to improve. He is now very alert and responsive and just a goofy little guy. After exertion with play, he does at times tongue out pant. He plays hard! He loves to give hugs and will climb to necks and heads to give them, oh and legs, too! He loves to hold on to legs! If you are looking for a calm and relaxed cat to do nothing but snuggle on a couch, Jimmie is not the cat for you. He will make his presence known every second and demand attention. If you work from home, Jimmie has no boundaries with keeping off of keyboards and flying through paperwork! While he does spend time in foster care with an adult cat, she is not so thrilled with his kitten shenanigans. He would not do well with young children who may not understand his play style at times his hugs can be quite intense! This high activity level may decrease as he ages, but at this point, we haven't noticed any change. If you love adventure and fun and would enjoy an "in your face" type of feline companion, Jimmie could be the guy for you! *While Jimmie has no current medical needs due to his polyp removal surgery, he will require to be monitored for sinus/breathing issues. It is also likely that his cardiac arrest was due to a reaction to anesthesia. If he were ever in need in the future of anesthesia, this will need to be done with an anesthesiologists specialist.
