Please network! NEEDS RESCUE ASAP!

Sadly, Jellybean #A364106 is a real-life example of why cats should not be declawed. He's a gorgeous 1-year-old neutered male Himalayan cat, turned in to the Pasadena, CA shelter by his prior owner for "nipping". The former owner said she had him declawed because of an elderly person living in the home and she was were afraid that he'd scratch her. Perhaps the vet didn't tell her that declawed cats tend to be over-zealous with their teeth when their first line of defense is amputated? :(

​When Jellybean in his shelter cage and inside his kitty den, he is acting conflicted: He's purring and happy one moment and then the next he's hissing and nippy. He has good bite inhibition in that he doesn't bite super hard when he puts his teeth on you. He is much better if you take him out and hold him, he doesn't try to nip then. He is FeLV negative and up to date on vaccines. He's totally won the hearts of some of the shelter staff and they are trying to find him a rescue ASAP!

A very cat-savvy adopter can go directly to the shelter 361 S. Raymond Ave, Pasadena CA to adopt him too, but a rescue would be preferred. 

Thank you!
