Quick Bio:
-mixed breed

November 28th 1995

Gray Tabby

Sleeping, getting his rump rubbed, sitting next to us on the couch, getting his food PRONTO in the morning, chasing flies, sneeking outside, and his Temptations Dental Treats.

Sneezing (he will tell you off if you sneeze in front of him) and other cats.

Favorite Toy:
Anything with catnip... in fact, he'll just take the catnip by itself. No toy necessary.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Jinx had his very own cat bed that no one else is allowed to touch, but he still alternates between the cat bed and the couch.

Favorite Food:
Tuna. Jinx lives for tuna.

When Jinx wants attention, he will grab the nearest fuzzy toy and start carrying it around the house whilst howling at the top of his lungs. He'll eventually bring the toy to us as though he caught and killed it (and wants us to praise him).


Arrival Story:
I had to give up my first cat when I was three years old because my mother and brother were highly allergic. I had begged and pleaded after that for a cat. My mom and brother both eventually got their allergies under control, and then on my 12th birthday my mom took me out for a surprise. She took me to someone's house and there was my new eight-week-old kitten! Best. Birthday. Ever.

Jinx is a very pampered Mama's boy. He's incredibly smart and incredibly vocal, and seems to have a real sense of humour. He constantly wants attention and hates when we go away. He's not a lap cap, but he loves to be scratched and rubbed and groomed. Jinx is also a very laid-back cat... he has no problem falling asleep on his rump with his legs splayed out (though we do our best to stop him when company is over). Jinx is my big fat squishy man.

The Many 'Mew'sings of Jinx the Cat

I cannot believe it.

The humans brought another cat into my house. I suppose they found the little furball outside or something. Bah.. I guess the outdoors isn't all it's cracked up to be.

It all started last week. I was outside on my harness (ghastly thing) and surveying my kingdom, when out of nowhere came this huge hideous animal! A dog. It looked oddly familiar... I think I lived with a dog like this one when I was just a wee babe. In any case, I started to make my way back inside when the beast was called off. I returned to my post only to be pounced upon a SECOND time by a DIFFERENT dog! I'd had it. I hissed the fellon down, and then gave him a swat to the muzzle. That showed him. He ran like a coward--a coward I say! Ha-ha!

So I was feeling quite proud of myself when I finally got back inside. It's not everyday that I am allowed to slay the neighbour's hell-hound.

But my triumph was quickly extinguished when they brought HIM inside... I knew the lady human they were talking to was up to no good. Now my kingdom has been invaded! My authority is threatened!

Thankfully a few good swats and a lot of hissing has settled "Hugo" down. He doesn't bother me as much anymore, so long as he gives me my space. He seems to be spending most of his time assaulting Cagney anyway. Heh heh... maybe I could grow to like the little scamp after all.
