Jessie, a brown and black striped domestic short hair/tabby mix with big, blue eyes, sits in a windowsill, bird-watching. Her gaze is directed at an object behind the camera.

I had it in my head to find a cute, adorable little kitten to share with y’all this morning – a nice change of pace from all the hard luck cases, you know? But when I saw Jessie’s listing on Petfinder, I knew that she was the one.

Poor Jessie recently lost both her home and family when her person had to be hospitalized due to Alzheimer’s disease. (It’s a shame that nonhumans usually cannot accompany their human friends into assisted living facilities, but that’s another topic for another day. Ditto: homeless shelters and women’s/domestic violence programs.)

Can you imagine how this girl must be feeling?


Something’s got Jessie’s back up. The inhumanity of humanity, perhaps?

Domestic Short Hair/Tabby – Brown Mix: An adoptable cat in Ottawa, KS
Medium • Adult • Female

Jessie is a 7 year old Brown Patched Tabby with beautiful colors. Jessie has pretty light green eyes. She was turned in to the shelter because her owner was placed in a nursing home due to advancing Alzheimer’s. Jessie is a lap cat who gets along with other cats. She likes squeaky toys and balls in a donut toy. Jessie has always been an inside cat so she cannot be let outside. She is use to a cat scratch cardboard. Jessie has not been around small children so a home without kids or older children is needed. She does prefer women over men.
