Jimmy the Snowshoe/Siamese mix, my foster boy

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Here are some cute pics of my foster boy, Jimmy. He is the sweetest boy with no attitude and just wants to be loved on. He's been with me now for 2 months with only a few inquiries. It's probably because he would do best as an only pet and no kids. Also, he is OBSESSED with eating plastic so his new home will have to be super vigilant about keeping all plastic behind locked doors.

Ok, on to the pics...

He's a great poser...





His silly side...



I think I'm boring him...



Exercising is hard work...time for a catnap...



Jimmy loves putting his toys in the water...caught in the act...









Elevator butt!!



Gimme 5!



He loves playing in water...







Are you staring at my butt?



Just relaxing...

Thanks for the nice words. I think he's gorgeous but I may be a little biased. Thank goodness he doesn't have catitude or I could be in trouble. He weighs in around 14 lbs and is tall...



He's just a little shorter than my Corgis. When he stands on his back legs he can see over the bathroom vanity. He loves standing on his back legs so he can check out the walls and ceiling.

For having Siamese in him, he has absolutely no attitude whatsoever (yeah I know, I'm tempting fate here). He's great with me and even though he hates having his claws trimmed, the most he does is squirm to get away. I had one foster that screamed bloody murder as if I was torturing him.

Jimmy was given up by his owners because him and his brother starting fighting after living peacefully together for the first few years of their lives. They didn't know which cat started it and for whatever reason, decided that Jimmy had to leave.

Here's a couple more pics of my big sweetheart...



This was taken at the shelter. It shows how big he is...



During the first couple of weeks here...meeting dogs for the first time...





So far my boys have won over all my fosters...even those that were terrified of dogs at first...



He loves hanging out in the cat trees in the foster room...

Jimmy is a very handsome boy and he looks like he is full of personality!
You got some really nice photos of him.
I actually was looking at Siamese Rescue the other night and I noticed him.
Hopefully someone will adopt him soon.

I though he might be a big boy. Is he yours or are you fostering him? He is absolutely beautiful.

Duh,huh! I just saw he is a foster. I wish he were not so far away, I would have him by tomorrow.

Wow he's gorgeous!
I couldn't really tell that he was a big cat until I saw the pics of him being held and the one with the Corgi!

He is a big pretty boy.
Has a vet had a good look at his teeth, though? There looks to be a little inflammation around some of his top teeth and they're awfully yellow. It would be bad for him to go to a new home and any potential new owners not know that this could be an issue.

All SCR cats are vetted before going to their new homes. The owners are given all information regarding the health of the cat and what may be needed.

Well Jimmy got weighed in today and he's now a whopping 15 lbs 11 oz! He's on a diet, no more free feeding, and he's not happy about it.

Well, Jimmy's been with me 3 months today and still no interest in him. He has been integrated in with my 2 cats (both males) and my 2 dogs, but I think his plastic eating is what's scaring people away. No one wants to take the time and plastic proof their home. I know the purrrfect home is out there for him, until then...more pics!

Well, fish do belong in water... [found fish in water bowl after starting him on his diet]



Prefers the top bunk...



Chillin' with the rest of the boys...



"Need a new rinse cycle?"



"I'll be happy to taste test your food"



"There's gotta be something good in here..."



"I know she's hiding the catnip stash..."



"Got it!!"



Feel the burn...



Posing for the camera...







Bellyrub time...




That's it for now! Hope you enjoyed!

He's definitely a handsome boy! Any plans to keep him for good since he's so well integrated and your house is obviously already plastic-proofed? Love the pix of him putting toys in the water... He's such a clown!

That thought always crosses my mind with the more difficult to place fosters, but that would prevent me from fostering more cats. My checking account forces me to be realistic unfortunately, plus I know my limits on how many I can handle.

Aww, what a gorgeous boy! He's so beautiful! And big, I hadn't comprehended how big he was until the second batch of pictures.
