Joey, BCR’s Scottish Fold
By Jill Anne Sparapany

Meet Joey! He is BCR’s only Scottish Fold cat. Not all Scottish Fold cats have the folded ears, but Joey displays the lovable folded ears that make him look like a “Grumpy Cat.”

In 2013, Joey came to BCR after being rescued from a cattery in Missouri. Many of the cats in the cattery tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Fortunately, the person that rescued him wanted to find a safe home for Joey and they flew him to BCR.

Joey was very shy when he first arrived. He tolerated being handled and loved to be scratched bbehind his ears. After his initial time in quarantine, he joined the other cats in the FeLV+ room. Working with Joey has brought him out of his shyness shell and he loves to play with the other cats and chase toy feathers with the BCR staff.

Joey is one of the cats in the room who will use the big exercise wheel. He has the type of “workout” that all of us would love to do – he will walk on the wheel for 15-30 seconds, then lays down on the wheel.

You can watch him LIVE on Ustream on Monday's.
