Y’all know how many times I’ve mentioned our friend Jenna. She is the one who saved my Sister Dolly, my Sister Precious, Little Bit, Selina (aka Faith) and so many more. Jenna needs our assistance in helping a senior mancat in her neighborhood. Jenna has so many critters she cares for, she just can’t help this guy.
Jenna tells me this senior gentleman is about 9 years old, and his name too is Cobie. He is all black and huge, road hard and put up wet if you know what I mean. His ears are chewed, but he was tested and was okay. He is neutered and needs shots updates, but had them a couple of years ago when Jenna took him to the Vet.
Jenna says that she lives in a very low class neighborhood with a lot of foreclosures in the $90,000 range. His owners were very cruel to him and have told Jenna to her face they no longer want him. He is the street cryer. He walks with everyone that goes by and cries out for attention and pets. He looks in people’s doors and is dying to go inside. He does not live near Jenna, per se, but used to live several streets away. Jenna has rehomed him 8 times and every time the people will feed him then move away. Jenna has made styrofoam boxes lined with bedding for people’s porches only to have them thrown away. She made one just last week and he continues to sit in it at the last house that was foreclosed upon, where he still sits for food every day. Jenna puts food and water out twice a day but Jenna is also moving and it is killing her about what to do with this poor old kitty.
He just needs to have a place to be warm. Everyone loves him but is not even committed to putting a little food out for him, even though Jenna has offered to purchase the food for them. The fear is as he gets older he is becoming slower and loves the warmth summer provides. but the winters can be very cold here. Jenna has knocked on 15 doors to date, and talked to this many people only to have them say, sorry not interested.
Jenna says he just breaks her heart and she prays for him each and every night as she goes to bed, praying that someone will open their home to him or feed him or whatever. He is very affectionate, albeit he is a little dominant around other cats, but that could change given the right environment and attention. He could be outside, if he had a warm place to go to be fed on a regular basis and if he were sick could be taken to the vet or euthansized so he would not have to suffer.
If you can help, or know someone who can, please email me at brianfrum (at) gmail (dot) com. This senior gentlemancat really needs our help.
