You might know Jersey Joe as a spokesman for Taco Bell, but did you know there was a heavyweight boxer called Jersey Joe Walcott? His real name was Arnold Raymond Cream. Born on January 31, 1914, he became the oldest man to win the heavyweight title at age 37. He later became the first African-American sheriff of Camden County, New Jersey. I'm no boxer, and I've never had a taco either. I'm an orange tabby and white adult male who was found in Kasson. I was so frightened, unhappy, and even hissy when I got here back in February 2023, but I have come a long way since then. Now I like to chase the laser light and play with wand toys, so I could be a fun, entertaining companion for someone. I also enjoy watching birds outside the window. Although I like being around people, I prefer that they do not pet me or pick me up, and I can sometimes become overstimulated and nip, so I would do best in a home with experienced cat owners. It would be best if children in the home are 12 years old or older. A shelter can be a stressful place to be, but I know I really am lucky to be here and not out on the street fending for myself. I can hardly wait to get into a loving home where I can relax and have lots of room to roam and explore. A cat like me could really add some spice to your life! Stop by and get to know Jersey Joe!
