About Jack (SlapJack)-adopted
3/14/13 Update: Jack is doing great. Instead of hiding under a bed, he sleeps on the dog's bed in the middle of the living room. He talks to you when he wants some attention or treats. Jack knows dinner is at 5pm and he sits with the rest of the gang waiting to eat. Jack did a new first and jumped onto my lap for - he's been watching the other cats sit with us and thought it looked fun. He loves to play and is interacting well with the cats and dogs in the house. He rubs against the dog, goes through his legs and sits by him when he eats dinner. Sudden movements or loud noises still scare him for a brief moment but he comes right back into the room once he realizes he is safe. He will come to you to be pet if you call him and put your hand out and wait patiently. Jack becomes more confident everyday.
3/2/13 Update from Jack's new foster home- He was moved to a busier house to see how well he can adjust to new places:I just wanted to give
you an update on Jack. He is finally coming out during the day and
interacting a bit more with people and animals alike. He is currently
lounging on the dog bed and came looking for some attention which is unusual as I still have to coax him out to pet him a lot of the time. Any sudden movement or someone else entering the room still sets him running. He is a sweet cat and we enjoy working with him. We pray that the right person or family will come along and love him as I think it will be like starting over each time he is moved. He will need to find someone who is patient with him. It's taken him a couple weeks but we see a growing sense of confidence and trust. He knows that 5pm is dinner and heads to the kitchen with everyone else, etc. I have attached a little video of Jack a couple of the cats playing with the laser tag.
2/8/13 Jack has come a long way in the last two months. He comes when called, enjoys attention from his foster mom and loves playing with the other cats. He can still be skittish with being picked up or with sudden movements or new people but he has come a long way out of his shell.
11/29/12 SlapJack is a solid black kitten, who can be playful and sweet once he settles in, but is very skittish in new situations and new people. His long-haired tabby brother & sister are all adopted, so he's the last one waiting for his forever home. SlapJack is neutered, up to date on shots, and FeLV/FIV negative.
6/4/12 These four long-haired beauties were turned in to the Philadelphia shelter as strays. The two boys are Rummy (black) and SlapJack (gray tabby) and the girls are Hearts (gray tabby) and Uno (tabby with white paws). Uno was brought in separately, with singed whiskers and a little burn on her face, and has white paws and a little white spot on the chest and is the friendliest. SlapJack and Heart are twins, tabby stripes faces but fluffy gray on their bodies and dark tails. Rummy the black one is the smallest, with medium length fur and is the shyest. All kittens have their first distemper and tested FeLV/FIV negative.Car Kittens- R
