GP, RW Pellburn Jacoby Stealin Home, also known as Jake the Strollercat, has lymphoma and the bills for his chemotherapy are exceeding what his insurance will cover.
Jacoby is a very special Abyssinian. He is a retired CFA and FIFe show cat (winning 21st best cat in Premiership in the Northeast Region in 2015, as well as 8th and 10th best Abyssinian in Premiership in 2015 & 2016 in CFA worldwide), but he was also a certified therapy cat with Pet Partners for many years. He was presented with the prestigious Scarlett Cat of the Year award by the Westchester Cat Club for his therapy work with first responders after the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. He also gained local infamy in Boston for riding the T in his stroller.
In 2016, Jake moved to Sweden, still travelling in his stroller to cat shows around Europe.
Jacoby is well known to his fans who have been following his adventures online for since 2009 (he turns 10 on 14 April). He is still so young. I don't want to lose him yet.
