Every cat deserves lots of love. It would be really rude to judge a cat on how he looks. All cats are pawsome, no matter how they look. Cats have a reputation for being selfish, so many people tend to stay away from them. But this is not the cats. The felines only bring happiness and love in the life of their hoomans.
Meet Jacques, a three year old ginger cat that just wants to cuddle!
At the age of seven months, the kitty was left at a shelter home by his owners as they couldn’t take him along to the place they were moving to. Nancy Hutchinson, the president and owner of Michigan Cat Rescue said that the little kitty was left all alone without any help.
Jacques was found in a house that was foreclosed upon. The person who owned him left him there and didn’t care. He was found by the realtor and brought into the shelter. This happens quite often, sadly.
Jacques’ name was added to the euthanasia list as the shelter was overcrowded. When Hutchinson visited the shelter, Jacques quickly sat in her lap and started cuddling with her. Hutchinson felt really bad for the cat and decided to take him to Michigan Cat Rescue.
Soon, everyone started calling Jacques a “lap cat”. It didn’t take long for the lap cat to get adopted. But sadly, he was left back at the shelter soon after that.
After about a year, she said she didn’t want him anymore. She said, ‘He’s constantly trying to sit in my lap– I just can’t stand it anymore. I’ll have to return him to you. This is not what I signed up for.
This affected the cat seriously. Jacques became really ill and even stopped eating for a few days. The shelter then decided to find another home for the cat. After analysing a lot of applications, the shelter finally let Liz Myzuik and her husband take the cat home.
As soon as the couple met Jacques, they fell in love with the cat. Jacques not only got a new home, but also a new name “Giuseppe”. Jacques’ new hoomans were really sad to find out about the cat’s story. They made sure that the cat got the best of everything. It is important that everyone out there understands how cats feel on being abandoned. It’s the worst thing to do to a cat or any other animal for that matter.
