ADOPTED! Colby Jack Says Cheese Please


DMH Solid White Male

DOB: 1/6/2013

Colby came to SNAP in January of 2015 and the vet estimated him to be between 2 and 3 years old.  So we gave him a birthday of January 6, 2013.  Colby and I added the Jack says yes please take a look at me!  See he has a sad story to tell but it has a great ending because now he’s safe and warm because his guardian angel watched over him.  His angel saw a car drive up and throw him out and drive away, which is a good thing because, Colby Jack is deaf.  It didn’t take long before the other colony cats started beating up on Colby Jack and he couldn’t protect himself and the caregiver couldn’t figure out why. So, when he was rescued, he was badly beaten up and his ears were so infested with mites that they had burrowed so deeply that they have caused permeant hearing loss.  So you have to use sign language with our little Colby Jack!  He is quite funny to see running and playing with anything he can find with.  Thus, it makes him quite a character and quite a nascence with some of his other foster friends.  With his hearing loss he doesn’t hear the warning signs from his fellow friends so from time to time he gets a wallop here and there when he takes his play a little too far.   He is such a darling little fellow though that we had to give him a second name as Colby just wasn’t enough for him.  His foster mom has taught him hand signs for certain things and he just doesn’t understand why everyone won’t just play with him, which leads me to think he might be a little younger than two with his playful attitude.  So Colby Jack needs a great home with lots of entertainment of a playful understanding cat or two that are loving and understanding of his rowdy cowboy way.  Just look at the photos of adorable little Colby Jack and you can see how he is as adorable as can be!
