Pet of the Week: Jazzica

Jazzica a, 2.5-year-old longhair domestic cat, was born with congenital deformities in both of her back legs.

She has been examined by a local veterinarian who has “never seen anything like that” in his years of practice. He concluded that, while different, Jazzica suffers no apparent pain and is just as mobile and playful as any other curious cat her age.

She does have a unique strut that lands her somewhere between ballerina and cowboy. With a short hop, she can get into any location to snuggle up.

Described as a ‘bit of a diva’ Jazzica likes to be the center of attention and cuddle with people. She is very friendly to kids, dogs and other cats.

For more information visit Jazzica online at the Belleville Area Humane Society website or call the shelter at (618) 235-3712.
