Arrival Story: jake and jeffry (ref ) are litter mates. They are two of the five kittens taken surgically from their mother before birth so she could be adopted. All five lived. Four, including Jake, were given homes at 7 weeks old. Jake, unfortunately, was returned to me 3 years later due to litter box problems and very poor socialization skills. I worked patiently with Jake for over a year getting him litter box trained again. I went thru a vacuum cleaner, laundry basket, anything cardboard or wicker, and some cat toys. Jake is a very nervous cat and needs to be able to get to the litter box without confrontation with other cats.
Bio: Jake is a gentle cat and once he feels safe he will show his affection by kneeding with all four paws. He was declawed by his previous owners which might explain his nervous behavior. I choose to keep him because I think he has been through enough, even though he would probably like a home with less cats.
