In May last year, we were informed that a number of cats had been abandoned in a deserted house in Heukseok-dong, Seoul. The tenant hadn’t paid the rent for over 6 months and couldn’t be contacted. The house owner reported this to the police, and found the house full of cats, with mold, feces and the corpses of cats everywhere.
When we arrived, the place was in an appalling state. The feces covered everything, and had hardened. We also found a mother cat nursing and protecting her tiny newborn offspring that hadn’t even opened their eyes yet. Both mother and kittens were almost starved and were in a very fragile condition.
The cats had been able to get in and out through a broken window. We weren’t able to determine which of the cats were originally house cats and which were strays who had come in off the street.
It took 4 days to rescue all of the 18 cats that were left in the deserted house.
Jerry is a shy with a somewhat serious facial expression but is extremely charming and a very good-natured cat. Whenever he gets scared, Jerry looks for his friends to snuggle with. Once he’s with his friends, he relaxes.
Jerry’s life hasn’t been easy. He’ll need time to settle down and adjust to a new environment. We want to find a family who can take the time to get to know Jerry and provide the loving home that he deserves.
Jerry has Coronavirus, which is a very common virus and healthy cats like Jerry usually recover from it.
