About Me:

Hi, I'm Jojo!

I'm a sweet older fella that the staff and volunteers are still getting to know personally. Right now their main concern is making sure I am on the road to a healthy future.

I am diabetic, my diagnosis was a little over a year ago. Ideally, my owners will be confident and comfortable helping me with daily insulin injections and all the other care that I require.

Though there is no cure for feline diabetes, the prognosis for a good quality of life is good with adequate management at home, best achieved through a combination of insulin and dietary therapy.

While I am a very brave boy at the vet and the shelter, I do not like to be in a crate or a kennel, I can be a little spicy.

Day to day when I don't have to go to the scary vet, I rotate between some great beds and sun spots. I love getting chin scratches and butt rubs when I have visitors. I gladly enjoy the company and would love someone who is a bit of a homebody.

My Story:

I was with my previous home since I was a year old, they loved me and made me a member of their family. However, due to my health they were no longer able to provide me the care they knew I needed.

While I was sad to be brought into WAG, I know that they'll find me a great forever family, I just hope I don't have to wait too long.

If you cannot adopt at this time, please consider donating to Jojo's care.
