Jacks may be the singer of the family, but I'm the twinkle-toes. Throw in some old man clumsiness, and I provide hours of entertainment for the family.


Arrival Story:
Mort and Jacks are littermates. We have had them since they were tiny kittens. He is totally bonded with the human son, Alec, and never leaves his side. He is very clumsy and falls alot in his old age, but he has arthritis in his front legs and bad eyesight. Tends to over or under jump his targets. He has the huge honor of being named after a legend: Cary Grant's character, Mortimer Brewster, in Arsenic and Old Lace. He lives up to the character's clumsy, scared sophistication that charms everybody. He's just missing a cleft chin.

Mort's Mishaps

Devastating news

I've been experiencing nose bleeds for the past week now. My mom took me to the worst place on earth Tuesday...the vet. My nose is swollen and there was remnants of blood on my left nostril. They decided to take an xray of my head. They found a tumor growing in my nasal and sinus area. The doctor said that there is really nothing that can be done for nasal tumors. I must go home, spend time with my loved ones, and wait until I can no longer continue with the tumor. My boy is devastated. He sits with me and keeps a paper towel to help with my nose bleeds. I've been with him since he was 4 years old, and now he just had his 19th birthday. He told mom that he has never slept without me and he didn't know what he would do. Mom has asked him about another cat, but he doesn't want one now. He says he needs to be with me. I'd be grateful for any purrs to be said for my boy. He is going to miss me fiercely. Thank you my friends.

It's Christmas Eve today, and I got up real early and begged for my breakfast like usual. Mom saw that I had something special going on today. Not only was I waiting for Santa to come tonight, but I was chosen as a DDP - on Christmas Eve! I felt on top of the world. I ran around playing and jumping, crouching under the tree like a panther. Thank you, Diary Chick, as you're so belovedly regarded as. Thank you, faithful Catster Headquarters. Thank you for the photos Grammy's Crew and Awesome Kitties of Catster, and Tabatha Dreamette #19 and KCK! Thank you for the pmails Angel Buddie and Smiley Cassanova! And it was a day of Christmas Tree giving, so thank you to all the families who sent trees my way. Santa is really gonna have to work hard tonight to top this! Love all my friends! Merry Christmas, one and all.



No slowing down at Christmas

I've got arthritis in my front legs. My jumping skills are something left to be desired. I gimp around the house, and sleep alot. But there is no amount of arthritic inflamation to slow me down at Christmas. I see the stocking with the cat on it. I'm very aware it belongs to the feline household members. And the tree is fair game, as long as I'm concerned. The girls like to scratch their claws on the trunk. I've got dreams, big dreams...which is what Christmas is all about. My eye is on the red and gold balls hanging all over the branches. Shatterproof balls. Mom is aware of my dreams, and prepares accordingly. I get focused, slowly approach my target, then unleash the brute force left in these old bones. Dreams of throwing like Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemmons, and Ron Darling. Wishing someone was clocking the miles per hour at which the balls fly across the room. Could it be Greg Maddox or Orel Herschiser? No, it's Mortimer. He's battling arthritis, but look at that unbelievable physical stamina! The guy is a phenomenon! I'm pitching a no-hitter, and it's the bottom of the ninth. Yes, I've got dreams. I'll be flinging Christmas ornaments waiting for Santa to bring me a catnip baseball. Every man has dreams, no matter his age or ability. You can find me under the tree. Merry Christmas!
