It is always so heartbreaking when a cherished pet loses his trusted and caring owner. This is what happened to precious 11 year old Joey whose human dad just recently passed away unexpectedly. Joey’s caretaker (the daughter of his deceased owner) is convinced that Joey was very aware that his dad wasn’t doing well in the last few weeks. Joey and his dad were very close and sweet Joey is mourning the loss of someone who loved, treasured and took great care of him for many years.

Joey’s caretaker would love to keep him, not just in memory of her dad but also because Joey is such a sweet cat. However, she has a senior female who would not at all be happy to have Joey (or any other cat) around.

Joey lived with another cat until she died of cancer 5 years ago, so we believe that he would integrate well with a docile and cat friendly cat. He is such a sweet and gentle soul and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He might be a bit shy in the beginning because his whole world changed after the loss of his beloved human.

We don’t know about dogs because he has never been around a dog. We also don’t know about children because the family doesn’t have small children.

We do know that Joey loves to be close to people and that he loves to be brushed. We also know that he enjoys some nice lap time, and if you enjoy having a little foot warmer in bed, Joey will be grateful to garner a spot in your bed.

Joey’s owner took great care of him and provided him with consistent vet care. Joey was seen in June for a teeth cleaning and is up to date with vaccinations. Joey was identified by his vet as a Russian Blue and has all of the characteristics of this breed (mauve paw pads, green eyes, and face structure).

He probably could lose some weight since he is a solid 19 lbs., but any weight loss will have to be done very gradually.
