Jonty loved being petted! He also loved snuggling and adored everypurr he met.
None at all, except maybe too little food in his bowl!
Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of shoes! Lying in the sun with his back legs stretched out, we called it his 'tanning position'.
He LOVED cheese! If you opened the refridgerator, even softyl, he came running meowing all the way!
Forgiving humanity for his past and being the sweetest dear in spite of his experiences.
My sister's parents-in-law live on a farm and run a boarding kennel/cattery. I used to help them out over school vacations, and one year people dropped of this beauiful, but very sickly-looking kitty. They filled in all of the forms and left. The date they put down for their return came and passed....a week...two weeks later, and no show. We phoned the number and it wasn't theirs. So it seems this poor baby was abandoned. Of course I had to take him home! But he was in such a bad shape, we feared that he might not make it...he had big bald patches, he was thin and also didn't really have energy. We were also scared he might have something he could pass on to Oupie and Queenie, our only two kitties at the time. But we kept him separate from them till he was better, and took care of him and he grew into the gorgeous, sweet kitty that he was. His front teeth were missing, and the vet says there was signs of trauma to his jaw, so we think he might have been kicked. The vet also found a bb pellet in his cheek, but since it didn't cause him discomfort he didn't cut it out. But the vet said that was probably why he was blind in his one eye - the one closest to where he was shot. So all in all he was a mistreated kitty who got a second chance.
Jonty got sick and stopped eating about two weeks after Oupie crossed the bridge. I took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with such an aggressive form of cancer that the vet told me it is comparable to the type of cancer in which humans have two months to live from diagnosis. We gently helped him accross the bridge barely a week later, and he is laid to rest next to Oupie on the farm, underneath a weeping willow. This double whammy nearly broke my heart....but at least I knew they were with each other.
Everyone deserves a second chance!
