Furry Valentine: Jacob from Furkids

See also

Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish - a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.

Since February is the month we celebrate love, I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want to be your furry Valentine this year. These sweethearts want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.

Today’s featured pet is Jacob from Furkids. Jacob is a seven-year old black and white domestic long haired kitty. Here is more about Jacob from the Furkids’ website:

My name is Jacob and I have an interesting story to tell. I once lived with a family in Buckhead, but then they moved away and left me behind. I stayed at their front door waiting for them to come back for two years.

Then a new family moved in. They took me inside, but that didn’t last long and I was put back outside. These people gave me food, water and shelter for three years. They fed me, loved on me, brushed me however I remained outside. One night, I got into a fight with another animal.

The family had to rush me to emergency care. My bills were very high and they decided to give me away. Luckily the emergency clinic was able to get me to Furkids where I have been patiently waiting for two years.

I had the opportunity to live with a foster mom when I came to Furkids for a while. I am a very sweet and laid back 8-year-old kitty. I just want to find my forever home. I get along well with the other cats in my room at Furkids, so I don’t mind being with other cats or being an only. I will make a fantastic companion to you and I am very loyal as you know! Please consider adopting me today.
