When Jamie first arrived at the shelter, he had cat flu, bad teeth and kidney problems. The shelter removed his teeth, treated him for cat flu and put him on a special diet and medication to help treat his kidneys. Jamie was already very old, and the shelter was worried no one would want to take on the senior cat - until Jamie met Sarah Dempsey.
Dempsey went to the RSPCA Australia looking for a cat to keep her company, as she lives alone. She hadn't been planning on taking home a senior cat, but as soon as she met Jamie, she knew it was meant to be.
