MY ADOPTION FEE IS 100% PRE-PAID THANKS TO A GENEROUS DONOR! This elegant creature with the sleek shiny coat and the demeanor of a benevolent queen is aptly named. She is a Jewell through and through. Jewell was overwhelmed with the shelter when she first arrived, but as time goes by this girl is quite comfortable and outgoing. Once in a home she will most likely need a little time to adjust to her new “palace”, as changes in her environment can be a bit overwhelming. She is an affectionate girl who readily purrs when pet. In true regal fashion she does enjoy perching atop the cat condos to survey her (admittedly humble at present) queendom. Jewell is just a bit over 1 y.o. and was brought to us by her owner as she did not get along well with the family dog. With us she seems to enjoy the company of the other cats in the adoption room but is not afraid to bat the heads of the cheeky ones. She likes to hang out with and groom her friends. Jewell would do best with another young and active cat, but one that would let her be the boss; or a home with no other pets where she can be the queen. Jewell enjoys the company of people but would prefer playing with you than sitting on your lap. She is a young and active girl after all, and there are toys to be played with! She has been microchipped, spayed and is current on vaccinations.
