MY SECOND BEST FRIEND


Guest

537 views

NOTHING UNUSUAL LATELY, SO I THOUGHT I'D FEEL GOOD AND SAY A FEW WORDS ABOUT JAKE, ONE SWEET GUY.

 

I HAD A FEMALE CAT NAMED SAM FOR 12 YEARS. SHE LOVED TO TRAVEL IN THE CAR, WALKED AROUND ON A LEASH, AND SPENT EVERY EVENING ON MY LAP WHILE I READ. SAM GOT SICK 2 YEARS AGO AND HAD TO BE PUT TO SLEEP.

 

AFTER WAITING 6 MONTHS, I WENT TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY WITH INSTRUCTIONS FROM MY WIFE: NO MALE AND NO WHITE ANYWHERE ON THE CAT. WELL, I LET THIS ONE OUT OF THE CAGE, I SAT ON THE FLOOR AND HE CLIMBED UP ON MY SHOULDER AND JUST PURRED, WHITE CHEST AND ONE WHITE LEG. I WAS HOOKED. HE WAS A STRAY FOUND ON JOHNSON ROAD, SO HE WAS NAMED JOHNSON. I GOT TIRED OF BEING ASKED HOW MY JOHNSON IS, HENCE THE NAME JAKE.

 

ANYHOW, I COULDN'T TAKE HIM HOME, SO I WAITED A FEW DAYS, AND BROUGHT MY WIFE OVER TO THE SHELTER. I TOLD HER TO SIT ON THE FLOOR AND I WOULD LET SOME CATS OUT FOR HER TO LOOK AT. WELL JAKE SHOWED UP, CLIMBED ON HER SHOULDER, AND THE REST IS HISTORY. HE WAS MY WIFE'S COMPANION WHEN I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL.

 

HE HAS HIS HABITS. WHEN THE FIRST LIGHT COMES UP, HE BANGS THE PORTABLE TELEPHONE THAT MAKES NOISE SO WE KNOW IT'S TIME FOR HIS BREAKFAST. IF HE WANTS TO GO OUTSIDE. HE PACES AT THE DOOR, TALKING UP A STORM. AT NIGHT WHEN IT'S TIME FOR BED, WE PLAY WITH HIS TOYS.

 

I JUST FELT LIKE MENTIONING SOMEONE WHO BRINGS PLEASURE TO MY LIFE EVERY DAY. MY BUDDY.

 

HE'S LEERY OF ME BECAUSE OF THE WAY I WALK

I agree with you - cat's are wonderful. I have had a cat ever since I moved out of my parents house. The first cat I had used to sit across my shoulders and would stay there no matter what I did.

 

Right now we have 2 cats. One is our daughters and the other is mine - Tigger. They are both orange and white - at the last vet visit, Tigger was 21 pounds. Quite a cat.

 

They are very loving animals. When Chris had his stroke - I knew Tig realized that something was wrong. Whenever I would sit down he was right up on my lap and he started sleeping in bed with me. Even now with Chris home - Tiggy really helps fill in those times when I still feel lonely or alittle down.

 

I'm glad you found such a great friend in Jake.

well I am an animal person, we have 5 dogs and 1 cat, our cat "chompers" had been thrown out of a car and ended up at the neighbors....she didn't think her dogs would take kindly to her soooo we have had her 5 years now(I think) she gets along with all our dogs, chickens and geese...she eats most anything including spaghetti and lemon meringue pie...she is only picky about canned cat food flavors...

animals are always there for you, mine have learned to watch out if I'm walking and stay away from my feet.... sounds like you have a snuggler..very happy for your new addition... Bonnie

Marty,

Cats are wonderful companions. I have Stockings and he is my shadow. The nicest thing about having a cat choose you, is they are so independent, so when they become demanding for attention, we love them more. Jake sounds like a cutey.

I can tell jake is a bud(dy)cat!

 

I got one too, all 19lbs, but maine coons are normally big, swear she knew when I was stroking, never left my side till I left for the hosp and when I was back (who knew it would be seven weeks lator), she was right there the minute I came back....I didn't detect she was not thrilled to see me, Aunt linda screwed up with the canned food, linda fed her half a can (she has dry all the time) and me an 1/8th! Reality check! Gods little angels in fur so we're not lonely.....we're lucky to have 'em bouncesmile.gif
