Product Description

Hi everyone! My name is Jetty. My foster family found me dodging cars outside of Walmart in Corpus Christi. I originally had a home, but sadly they could not be found. Also I was sick, but my foster family nursed me back to health (I was lucky to be found by a vet!). I know I’m only 9 months old, at most, but my foster mom says I’m big for my age. If I had my way I would play half of the day and snuggle the other half. I love to play! I always use  my litterbox because it would be rude not to. Dogs are ok but I don’t like it when they chase me. Cats are cool, after they pass my test… which can sometimes take a few days, but it helps if they will play with me!

My foster family has not tried to train me, but say that I should be easy to train because I LOVE LOVE LOVE food. And playing, did I already say that? I do have a bit of a wild side. Since my foster family keeps me indoors, I try to pretend like I’m climbing and exploring outside – no shelf is too high! Unfortunately I have not made it to the top of the kitchen cabinets yet, but we all have goals. I also like to pretend like I am outside on a hunt, so it would not be a good idea to bring me into a home with pocket pets (rodents, reptiles, etc) or birds as it would put them in danger. My ideal home would have unlimited food! But my foster mom says I need two square meals a day because I will definitely over eat. I would also love a home with plenty of opportunity for interaction and activity. Another active cat would be a plus because it’s been a long time since I’ve been alone. Hope to meet you soon!

Where did you learn about Homes for Pets/Schertz Humane Society and our animals for adoption?

Do you understand that many Homes for Pets animals, having been abandoned by their previous owners, may come with “baggage” and may need to re-learn how to live in a home environment and to bond with your family and other pets?

Would you be willing to have an in-home visit by a Homes for Pets/Schertz Humane Society representative?


I hereby affirm that I have answered the above questions truthfully and to the best of my knowledge. I give my permission for Homes for Pets/Schertz Humane Society to contact the landlord, and veterinarian I have provided for references, and I give my permission for the release of any information they deem relevant to the adoption of an animal from the Homes for Pets/Schertz Humane Society.

In the event that I am no longer able to care for this animal, I agree to contact Homes for Pets/SHS in the first instance. However, I understand that Homes for Pets/Schertz Humane Society cannot guarantee immediate placement.

 By checking this box, I have agreed to share my information with Homes for Pets and have read the above statement.


Cats require a lot of your time, love and attention. The cost of caring for a cat includes food, vaccinations, deworming, testing, boarding, and veterinary care during emergencies. Please consider these requirements when adopting a cat and be sure you are willing to commit to a new family member who could be with you for the next 15-20 years. Thank you for your time!
