Sometimes, cats aren’t social creatures. I know. Shocker. But it happens. It might be because of the start they got in life, far removed from the cuddles of people, or maybe because you kept talking and they couldn’t nap for that 17th hour of the day. The story of Jasper and Jade is a case of the former. Trapped by a TNR group and brought to Cat Guardians by a volunteer, Jasper and Jade have made tremendous strides in their people skills. In fact, you’d practically think they ARE people now, like little Eliza Doolittles.
After noticing that, amidst the hissing and swatting, Jasper and Jade knew how to slow blink, Cat Guardians took them in and gave them a chance. Jade, named for a precious stone with strong energy associations, went from knocking food from people’s hands to enjoying the biography of Steve Jobs and being used as a nap-time pillow. Jasper, also named for a precious, high-energy stone, used to let cats steal his food because he was too afraid of retaliation to fight back. Now, though, well, he still lets other cats take his food, but we’ll just call him generous and move on.
Both of these guys have come a long way and are now looking for a home. They don’t have to be adopted together, but they certainly can be. Jade, 3 years old, is FIV+ and Jasper, two, is not. I thought I’d showcase you a two for one this week. Why not? It’s almost Christmas. Call Cat Guardians to meet these two fabulous felines! Go! Now!
PS. It seems I forgot to put Bailey on the front page last week. Therefore, you’ll be getting a “bonus bachelor” on the right hand side to enjoy all week long!
