My husband has never liked cats. When we suddenly had a mouse problem, I talked him into getting a cat for our house. He turned to Freecycle and Craigslist. It was almost like it was meant to happen.
My husband found a woman who was having to give away her husband’s cat because their little girl had developed allergies.
When she bought him to our house, he was scared and extremely nervous. My husband was afraid he had made a mistake.
After Jax warmed up to us, he made himself right at home. He is an overweight lap kitty. He would rather be next to someone or in their lap than anywhere else. He is a fat kitty. He wheezes when he purrs, grunts while he sleeps, and when he gets excited he drools everywhere. He is a silly character.
His favorite past time is sitting in the chair underneath our dinning room table. There he waits for our dogs to walk by to eat, drink, or go outside. When they pass he will hit them on their heads.
He loves teasing my 10 month old son to play. He will walk by and drag his tail across my son, knowing he will want to play. At the end of the night, after everyone is asleep, he will jump in my lap and wheeze/purr until bedtime.
When I was pregnant he refused to sit anywhere unless I was within arms length. He would follow me anywhere I went. He is a silly kitty and at times acts more like a dog than a cat.
He comes running when you call his name (or his nickname, Fat Fat). Every morning he is up crying for food as soon as anyone gets up. He has to sleep in between my husband and myself, well until our baby comes to our bed. He will make room for him.
MY GIRL Well, My girl isn’t really my girl! My cat’s name is Boo Boo I don’t know how she got the name. I do know that since my roommate and I have lived together that Boo boo and I have a bond. She has slept on top of me since the second day we have all lived together. She always makes me laugh. I do know that boo boo is 16 years old and feisty!
The week before thanksgiving we bought everything we needed for our celebration including the pan you put the turkey in. After we brought everything upstairs we could not find the pan! Boo boo had moved the pan and was laying in it with her head hanging out sleeping! It was the funniest thing I have ever seen a cat do!
On thanksgiving we cooked the turkey and all the fixings. As we sat down to eat Boo boo sat at the window next to the table like we needed to fix her plate! That night we left the oven door open to help heat the house (live in a cold climate) after a little while we see her laying inside the oven like it’s a hiding place!
Boo boo is always making me laugh. She lays in the strangest things. One day I came home too find her laying in a water bottle box they type with the plastic that goes over individual water bottles. I’m always finding her in a box of some sort or in a dresser drawer! She still acts like a kitten!
I love it! Right now she is laying on my lap purring like there is no tomorrow. Now that tomorrow is the last day we will be living together I relize that maybe our bond is that strong that we will still feel each others love even though were apart. I will miss her dearly…
