As soon as he stepped over the threshold of the ASPCA, Jicama immediately charmed every person he met at—so much so that an ASPCA staff member took him home as a foster! According to his foster, Jicama is just as sweet in the home as he was in the shelter. He “settled in so fast” that within just a day or two, Jicama was “hanging out like he was never anywhere else.” Even though we haven’t known Jicama for too long yet, there’s one thing we’ve learned that he absolute loves—attention! This guy is one of those kitties who headbutts your hands constantly to ask for pets and presses into them as hard as possible to politely demand that you keep going. Belly rubs are also welcome, and when he’s particularly happy Jicama kneads, rolls over and purrs!
Jicama is an incredibly sweet boy who would make a great addition to many different types of families. He’s previously lived with cats and dogs and is currently loving life with the dogs in his foster home. If you think Jicama may be the man for you, please fill out our Cat Adoption Survey.
