Our May 2020 Cat-Of-The-Month is the dream-boat, SJORS who resides in the Netherlands near The Hague and Lissen, where the tulip fields grow.
Sjors is a gorgeous 12 year old kitty, who has captivated his household and our Facebook friends with his huge green eyes and mellow disposition.
His human, Karla, tells about her first bittersweet encounter with Sjors:
"I was visiting my friend and Sjors
walked in. Apparently his owner had put him "on the street!"
Luckily Sjors was microchipped & her friend traced him back to his original owner. Astonishingly, his owner did not want him back due to "allergies." But this sad story had a happy ending. Sjors without hesitation jumped right on Karla's lap. Captivated by his sweetness, she could not resist this orange beauty and took him right home. Even though she did not own a cat at the time, she quickly acquired the necessary "cat supplies" to make Sjors feel welcome.
|His relaxation techniques |
are second to none!
Sjors is one of the most relaxed cats ever! His laid back sleeping styles include lying on his back or curling up in the cutest big ball ever. One of his great loves is crawling under covers. To accomplish this, however, he has learned how to tap his human on the nose to notify his intention. What a creative cat!
|"I didn't do it. It wasn't me!"|
Sjors has a few little, er, "talents" his human wishes he would replace with different skills. Despite scratching posts, he IS irresistibly drawn to furniture and, as a creative cat, tries to make his own designs on them with his personal"scratchings." These unique markings were not what his human intended when she acquired the furniture. He maintains it was not his fault but the evidence is there!

We are delighted to welcome Sjors as our May Cat-Of-The Month. When asked what she liked best about Sjors, his human said:
"He is a very friendly and sweet cat, he even likes the vet. He loves to cuddle all day. And gives me a wash regularly. We are best friends and I would not know what to do if I did not have him anymore. Even my friends and family see how well we fit together."
Sjors even likes the VET and gives free washes! Now that's a friendly cat, for sure! It was a lucky day when Karla and Sjors met each other!
