Breed: Female Manx x
Jaele is a friendly, gentle girl who enjoys the company of her dog and cat housemates, but is also happy to spend time by herself on a sunny window sill. She would also be content as an only pet, but we think her friendly nature means she would prefer some human company.
Also, Jaele was born with a medical condition which means she needs help with toileting. She needs to have her bladder/bowels expressed two or three times a day. She is quite used to this, never having known anything else, and with some simple training, this condition can be easily managed by a dedicated human. Her bowels also mean that she leaves little pellets like a rabbit – with the right diet again this can be managed.
Jaele’s toileting needs mean that she really needs a home where a human is home for a good amount of time each day, so she would be perfectly suited to retired a person, someone who works from home, or anyone who is home for long periods. She loves human company and interaction, and has even learned to high-five with her humans.
Luckily, she loves cuddles and is very happy sitting on the couch next to any human willing to give her a head rub. She is quite the athlete, and can easily scale a garden fence, climb a tree, jump onto a bench… She would love to have a safe outdoor area but can never be allowed loose anywhere unsafe as she would die a horrible death as a stray with her condition.
She loves to play chase games with cat toys and torchlight beams, and will sleep pretty much anywhere, by herself or close to humans. All that play works up an appetite for a young girl, and Jaele loves her food, so we recommend close monitoring of food bowls if other cats are fed, as she is known to search out leftovers and may overeat if left to her own devices.
Jaele’s foster family describe her as a really special young cat, full of affection and playful energy, but happy to give everyone their space… the perfect companion for understanding humans. But that human must understand they are taking on a special needs cat.
Jaele is looking for a really special person.
