Jinx's Story

Meet Jinx! Jinx is a handsome, FIV+ kitty who would love it if you stopped by to say hello! Described by his foster family as “curious and cuddly,” Jinx enjoys watching the world go by outside his windows, and snuggling with his human friends. Quiet, low-maintenance, and a total gentleman, Jinx would make a great companion for anyone looking for a sweet and loving feline companion!

Don’t be deterred by any nippy behavior that Jinx may display at the Adoption Center—Jinx is a total sweetheart in a home environment and away from all the noise and stress of the shelter! Jinx is FIV+, which means that he cannot share a home with other kitties who are not FIV+. However, Jinx may enjoy having another FIV+ feline companion that he can cuddle up with and got along with the resident dog in his previous adoptive home! . Please consider adopting him with one of our other FIV cats here at PAWS!  Can you give Jinx the home he’s been dreaming of? 

  • Cuddles! I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • I’m a people person! 
  • I would love having another feline friend in my forever home! 
  • I get along with dogs! 
  • Was that a bird? I love window watching! 


  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
