   Leave a treat for Jacques [Cousteau]


Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

August 31st 2007


He loves: exploring (especially water environments) my lap, climbing up my legs and back; playing with Nermal; pooping after Nermal does.

Being ignored, stale pupus adn unfriendly kitties.

Favorite Toy:
Anything is a toy! Including legs, hands, hair, books, assignments, the other cat, food, litter....

Favorite Nap Spot:
The back of the sofa or in the sheets of the bed next to me when the electric blanket's on.

Favorite Food:
Party mix, by Friskies.

He makes this "trlling" noise that is so cute. Snorkling? Annoying Nermal? Being cute? All of the above.


Arrival Story:
I'd about given up on finding a second companion to myself and Nermal when, in the desperate search for kitty litter one night at PetsMart, I saw who was to become Jacques in the window-- held in the arms of the cat rescue volunteer. It was love at first "hold"-- but in all seriousness, who can resist a kitten of three months? So despite all common sense, I took him home. Yet, I worried about his name-- what would I call this 2.5 pound kitten, now a part of my life? The answer became clear when his first act of exploration proved to be a snorkling trip in the toliet. Ah, I said, Jacques Cousteau. And the name's stuck and proven itself appropriate.

He's doubled in size in merely two weeks! This Maine Coon will be huge! But, he's a lovable beast; I can tell already. Nermal has accepted him into her household with ease; they play together now; chase is the favorite passtime, though Nermal does love pawing Jacques' head repeatedly. He doesn't seem to mind. **UPDATE** Jacques has moved to Lake Tahoe with me and loves it! He is too much of a gentle giant to catch the mice, however. I discovered him licking one's head the other day!

Lives Remaining:
