Jiminey , strikingly handsome, was found as a stray at a busy intersection in a suburb of Denver. His first year at the shelter was difficult for him. He was labeled a troublemaker when, in fact, he was intimidated and stressed by the other cats. As a result, he acted tough and standoffish.
Fortunately, Jiminey was chosen for the shelter’s TLC program, which pairs shy or unsociable cats one-on-one with volunteers who spend time with them every week.
Sue, Jiminey’s TLC volunteer, has been working with him since 2011, and gives him lots of extra love and attention. She brushes him, talks to him, and gives him lots of love. As a result, Jiminey has become calmer and more social.
He has learned where the food is stored, and relentlessly follows the volunteers who are giving out treats. But if another cat is getting the treats, he will patiently wait for his turn. He also loves to play with laser toys, and gets plenty of exercise during his play sessions the volunteers.
Jiminey would be happy in a quiet home with no other cats.
