FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - She may be missing a magic carpet, but Jasmine is sure to show you a whole new world. She’s a 6-year old kitty looking for an owner to love and maybe shed a few pounds with.

Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:

“Jasmine is a 6-year-old kitty looking for her new forever home. Jasmine came to the shelter pretty matted and severely overweight, so please excuse her silly haircut, it will grow back.

Jasmine is looking for a patient owner that’s willing to help her come out of her shell a little bit. She’s definitely warmed up to her animal tenders here at the shelter. She’s also looking for an owner that can help her shed the pounds.

Courtesy of the Shelter Fund, she has recently just had her teeth cleaned and bloodwork done, and everything is looking fantastic in those departments. She uses her litter box great here at the shelter, she has a healthy appetite.

We don’t know how she does with other animals, she definitely seems to prefer a quieter room, so might enjoy a quieter house. But if you do choose to introduce her to other critters, just please be sure to do so in a safe, slow, and controlled environment. If you are interested in meeting Miss Jasmine or any of the other kitties, bunnies, and dog friends we have here at the shelter, please give us a call!”
