I have 5 cats, 2 guinea pigs, 2 fancy hooded rats, and one Nanday Conure parrot. I didn't know what to put for a name because I love all my family. So I put the oldest.

HI I'm Jacob! After 4 long years of not taking home any animals from the animal hospital my mom works at she broke her own rule and brought me home.

I was brought in as a stray by a good Samaritan. I had a foot trap (the illegal kind) closed on my foot. The kind person who found me was nice enough to remove it before I made the car ride to the vet. My paw was hurt pretty badly but I was just so happy to be getting help all I could do was purr. My mom fell in love with me right away and since the nice fellow who brought me in already had a kitten at home he said I could go home with my new mom!

I stayed at the hospital for 3 weeks and had many surgeries to help my foot. It is almost healed (you can see my scar in my picture) but i feel so great I race around the house like a normal cat!

My mom named me after Jacob Marley from A Christmas Carole, she said I must have sounded just like him coming out of the woods howling and rattling my chain which was still attached to the trap. She only uses my full name when I'm getting into mischief. My eyes are still a bit runny from an upper respiratory infection but that is clearing up too. I miss my friend Murray from the hospital, he is another stray who is being taken care of there as well. I hope he finds a home soon!

I love my new home, i feel like one lucky kitty!
