Last Christmas one of our dear cats past away of old age and we’d had him for about 16 years+ till then so needless to say it’s been a most sad and difficult time since then. He had grown up with our other dear cat whom we had taken in as a stray after a New Year’s night which had one of our neighbors then taking her inside thinking she was our cat….so I was really thinking that she’d want to have a new friend~♥ around as it surely must get lonely well being the only four legged~one in our household now. We ended up adopting Jonny (more on his name a bit later =) ) and for a the first few weeks our female cat totally didn’t want to be anywhere near him!!! Cats being very much territorial this was an issue I was hoping wouldn’t arise and I was beginning to think that perhaps Jonny wouldn’t be able to stay after all =(.
A couple more weeks passed since and now they’re let’s just say…..co~existing in the shared space now =). Our older cat will get near to Jonny just as long as he doesn’t get overly frisky and attempt to pounce on her or do things like play with her tail which must be very very annoying xD. Speaking of frisky. Since our cats had been of a mature age for so long now I had totally wiped clear my memory of kittens being soooooooooooooo sooo active and just non~stop wanting to claw, bite, jump on you (aka known as playing) but he’s sooooooo soooo adorable while asleep lol (see photo above) ♥! Jonny also likes to climb upon our shoulders like a little monkey and smell our hair and rub up against our cheeks and he considers everything in sight to be a possible means of play or a toy :O. And I do mean everything in sight! He simply gets into everything he can reach and as soon as he’s able to jump higher nothing will be safe!! By far the most cute thing Jonny has done is mimicking me while I was petting our older cat Jack (she’s a girl though “Jack” short of “Jackie~♥)….as while Jack was facing away from him he began to literally “pet” Jack along with me which was sooooooo funny and cute!!!! I so want to get that on video and if I manage too I’ll be sure to share here ＾ ＾。
We since have purchased a large cat~tree for Jonny to play and sleep on hoping it would give our poor legs, hands and arms a rest from being clawed and bitten xD but his favorites remain his little mouse and leopard friends whom he often cuddles with and sleeps…that is while he’s not busy biting and kicking them with his hind legs or carrying them all over the house =). Jonny has really short and I must say luxuriously smooth and fine fur, very very different from any cat we’ve had before as he’s smooth like perhaps a hamster is? His now abnormally looking long eye brow hairs are so cute too and he looks to be growing up into quite a large cat we think as his legs are particularly oversized for him too. Well for now Jonny continues to be frisky nearly all day long including bed~time for us so dividing the house into “his” and “ours” became a new adapting factor during sleepy~time but it’s been working out great.
And now about his name…..
…yes we think he soooooo resembles Jonny cat the mascot for the litter company =)!! That’s a Jonny Cat plushy next to him that I got from a salesperson who was doing a demo with the litter awhile back =)…lol it took awhile to get a decent photo as Jonny was very busy sniffing and checking out the camera :P. His placement of his colors are so Jonny cat like and here you can see just how large his back feet already are.
Awww isn’t he so cute you just want to hug him ne~ ＾ ＾♥！！！
