Skills: Jordan is intuitive, she knows when your sad, or don't feel well. She also throws the best temper tantrums I have ever seen (or heard) in my life.
Arrival Story: We were thinking about getting a companion for CJ, who was 4 months at the time. One day we were at Petsmart & decided to just see what adoptable rescue cats they had.
We saw this little Tonkinese in her cage & thought she was the cutest little thing. When we opened her cage to see if she would let us pet her, she jumped out of her cage & into my husbands arms! She purred & purred. We both looked at each other & knew she belonged with us.
Bio: Unlike CJ, who had been feral & skittish, Jordan came into the house bossing everyone around. She had no "adjustment period" to her new home.
She's very vocal & let's all of us (me, my husband, & our 6 other furkids) know exactly how it's going to be. However, she is also super loving. She is kind of the "mamma" to the younger 5, making sure everyone get's groomed properly & everyone gets their fare share at treat time. She's definitely the queen bee around here.
Wow! In all my years on Catster, I've never seen so many wonderful gifts or gotten so many well wishes and friend requests! I LOVE it!

As I checked my page tonight, imagine my suprise that I had recieved even more gifts!!!!! Foxy Truman sent me a beautiful red rose! Gorgeous Angel Amelia sent me some yummy brussel sprouts. My HK homeboy, Diego, sent me a fun ladybug to chase! I also recieved another ladybug from sweet Gimli!

Purrs to all my friends who thought of me on my special day! Mom says I have lots of "thank you" p-mails to write tomorrow. MOL
I made mom and dad call me "cat of the day" all day today! I know the other cats are so jealous but OH WELL!!!!

So usually we check our email first thing in the morning but of course, this morning we totally procrastinated. Imagine our suprise when we realized I was CAT OF THE DAY! This is such a big honor!!!! We've been on catster for years, and just always figured if it were going to happen, it already would've. I'm SO excited!!!!!

This is the most pawesome day EVER!!!!! Thanks, Catster! We love you oodles of oodles!
So our good bud, Mercy, posted a piece a p-mail I sent her a couple of days ago. It was all about how we needed her expert advice bc this house went BANANAS when mom started the halloween costume nonsense.
Believe it or not, I was pretty agreeable for my shoot ( I went first). Rockee went next & he pretty much just sat & purred while mom took his pics (it takes quite a bit to get Rock upset). Buckie wasn't thrilled, but went with it because he knows the special Jones Family Math Equation:
Stupid Costume + Camera = Oodles of yummy treats
Poor Beanies costume head was too big for him, so mom just gave him a free pass for a while. Mom also knows better than to mess with CJ too much when it comes to dressing up (if you ever meet my mom, please ask her to do her impression of CJ in a costume, her friends find it quite entertaining).
Now, on to the DEVIL CATS FROM HADES!!!!!! All Spring had to do was stand in her special background. Her Halloween pic didn't require her to wear an outfit at all. She still refused to stand there. Screw the treats, screw the whip cream mom was giving her. She had made up her little diva mind she wasn't standing still. So mom kept moving her back. Then she BIT MOM!!!!!!!! Bit her! Bit the lady that rescued her from the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The lady that feeds her baby chicken food whenever she has to go the vet. Sadly, if you know Spring, you know that I'm the only one in the family she doesn't hit. She hits mom and dad & all our kitty brothers and sisters whenever they do something she doesn't like. She's kinda a jerk that way. The big shock, however, was 4ounce, the worlds biggest mamma's boy. He also, required no costume, just had to stand there. He didn't wanna. So he started growling at mom! At this point, mom started crying a little. Ounce is her sidekick & the two of them are thick as thieves.
You'd think mom woulda' learned her lesson and just give up. But alas, no. She plans on trying again with Spring, Bean, and maybe, juuuussst maybe a little hat she can slip on CJ while she's sleeping! MOL
Well, I've babbled long enough. Please check back for our halloween photo page extravaganza that will be up (hopefully) by Monday morning.
Purrs, Headbutts, Pawsmacks & all that jazz,
Jordan "Binx" Jones
