Jimmi was re-homed by us as a kitten, but returned to us a few months ago when he was found living as a stray. After searching high and low for his owners, we received no reply. As a result, he is now legally ours again, and is looking for a new loving home.
Sadly, after taking Jimmi to the vet, we discovered that he appears to have renal failure- meaning that his kidneys are not working how they should. Even though he is young, he will need to receive specialist food, and possible future medication, for the rest of his life. Because of this, Jimmi is looking for a Long Term Foster Home.
With The Sheffield Cats Shelter’s Long Term Foster Scheme, a fosterer gives Jimmi the love and care he needs, while The Shelter pays for his treatment and specialist food. Jimmi is not currently on medication for his condition, but there is a chance that he will need to be put on some in the future. He also requires regular vet visits, so his fosterer will need to be regularly available to take him to these.
Jimmi is such a little sweetie and loves attention. But because of his condition, he does need to go to a special kind of home. He will need to be the only cat in the household, because he will need his food and fluid intake monitoring at all times. His foster family will need to be home with him regularly because of this reason as well. Because of Jimmi’s nature, and the fact that he needs to only ear his specialist food, he will need to be an indoor only cat.
Jimmi would be fine with sensible children who understand his needs. Jimmi will also need to just eat his specialist food, and not have any rich treats, as they are too much for his kidneys to process.
