Twelve-year old, Jayson, is an orange marmalade tabby brought to the Lowell Humane Society back in October as a stray.
“With Jayson we don’t know his history so we don’t know if he gets along with other pets”, explains the shelter’s Marketing and Fundraising Manager, Crystal Arnott. “What we do know is that he is incredibly sweet and social. He is very friendly and likes to be pet.”
Arnott advises those who find a cat that they may think is a stray, to follow these instructions. “When we have a stray cat that is so social and friendly, we always recommend that you first try putting a paper collar on them and send them back out to do their regular day to day wandering for about a week. If a pet keeps coming back to your house, and no one has called you….if no one has contacted you in those first five to seven days, then bring them to the shelter and have them scanned for a microchip.” The finder’s name and phone number should be written on the paper collar with the words “Am I your cat?”
Because Jayson is considered a senior cat, the regular $150 adoption fee will be lowered to $50. Jayson is available now for adoption at lowellhumanesociety.org.
