Domestic Short Hair
Black and White
10 years 6 months.
Poor Joey N. has a very dramatic story, and we know there's someone out there who can give him the happily ever after he deserves!! Found in the South Bronx with his leg injured by 2 stray dogs, an elder rescuer took him to the vet and tended to his needs while his leg healed. Sadly, his rescuer has moved into assisted living, and a rescuer she mentored took Joey in. He is adored in his new home, but Joey really prefers to be a single cat, and there are cats in and out of his current home. She's heartbroken, but she wants to do what's best for Joey. Needless to say, Joey dislikes dogs due to his experience being attacked. Joey is super sweet, quiet and mellow, low maintenance, likes to sleep next to his human or sit on a lap, hugging his human. He's the ultimate lap cat. Joey has a mild thyroid condition and gets medication massaged onto the skin in his ears (not in the ear canal) once a day; he has no issues w that.. His leg is completely healed and he's completely healthy other than his thyroid. He’s otherwise vital and, as you can see, looks much younger than 10 years old :) Please email us at about this fabulous cat. We're sure he has a ton of stories to tell, and he'll be a great winter cuddle pal!
