Being picked up, his sisters
his mousie toy(gone), catnip toys
Favorite Nap Spot:
It is a mystery since he spends most of his time outside
chicken/meat, wet cat food
He can run faster than the dog, his sister and so far the neighborhood cats, he's outside smart but scared of inside noises.
indoors and outdoors
Sometime around the 14 of April one of the 'office' cat at my mom's work a solid gray DLH (Fluffy) had three kittens. The office is out in the county so it wasn't strange to hear that a litter of kittens had been born there. What is sad is that the Fluffy is own by a person who doesn't understand the perpose of spaying ones pets.
I had been wanting another cat or two since our last family cat left us a little over a year ago. And had been anyoing my mom about getting another cat. My mom gave in and as things are in this family my mom said we could look into getting two sister kittens.
Which meant my saying one cat good two cats better worked, and my saying an older cat would be better able to adjuest to our dog, Sadie.
Sadie is a poorly adjusted spoiled brat of a six year old.
One day my mom brought home three 5 week old kittens because her boss said it wasn't safe for Fluffy's kittens to stay there because the dogs would eat them. So when Fluffy let the three of them out on the grass, where the dogs could get to them, my mom's boss made someone get the kittens and put them inside.
Fluffy's owner didn't want the kittens. This isn't the first time Fluffy's had kittens and I've heard that she had another litter since then.
We had been looking for a pair of sister kittens to add to our family and so my mom brought them home one day ... along with their brother. My mom brought all three because she couldn't bare to leave the male kitten there all by himself.
Jaguar the male kitten we took in is no longer up for adoption. We've desided to keep him partly because no one we've asked wants him and also because we grown so attached to him and he's the nicest of the three kittens.
Jaguar is no longer up for adoption.
The person that was going to adopt Jag flaked on us.
My mom doesn't want us to put any ads up like the first time because she's convinced that they only attract weirdos.
The only people I know of that might take him are a couple from church, but the husband doesn't like cats. Or my brother. I know his girlfriend and her son would likely treat Jag well, and my brother lost his tom cat when they moved back over here. I do not normally trust my brother with animals, though he has shown that he is better with cats then others. If I can't talk the couple in church to take Jag his only other choices are to be surrendered to the local pet store or be surrendered to the pound (which is cheaper than the pet store and all their dogs and cats that are 'adoptable' are already fixed).

Jag purrs much of the time so I often tell him "you're such a purry boy". He purrs most when he's suckles on the bathmat. He loves that thing. Unfortunately his sister's believe that his purring is a signal for them to suckle on him! Bad sisters.

Jag's human: Yesterday Jag got in another fight with the orange cat (or so we assume). Mitzi and Suki were out in the back and I was wondering where Jag was and went about my day as usual. A while later I had to taken a empty box out to the recycles.
To understand what happened you need to know that our back yard has a gate with bars the cats can get through. The gate separates the backyard from the driveway(cement area the our cars use to get into the garage). If you follow the driveway away from the garage and around the corner of the house you'll end up in the front yard. Our garbage can and recycles sit next to the house on the drive way (Our driveway is kinda 'L' shaped).
So I went out the gate to put a box in the recycles(it a big blue can like the garbage can on a bit shorter). Suki was sunning herself on the driveway and Mitzi had just gone around the corner. I saw Mitzi's tail poof and went over to see what was going on. Jag was standing sideways all poofed staring at Mitzi. Somehow we all got back to the backyard(my mind a blur on that part. I they were up the the front yard when I came toward them and were both looking around like someone was out to get them).
Jag was limping a bit and hurt on his face (the right side same side as the former lump). Jag was all scared and looking around like whoever hurt him was about to pounce form any where at any time.
Jag is better today, but he needs to not roam (his sisters don't hardly roam). Saide(our dog) tried to 'kiss' Jag and that didn't go over well (I never does).
Right now Jaggy is in the laundry room (ie the cat's room) with his sisters and the door is closed. He just ate wet food (almost half a can) around noon. They normally eat dry, but he's mouth is hurt and he still acts a little shooken-up. My dad look at Jag last night and says Jag's bottom lip has a gash in it. We hope he doesn't need stitches, we just can't afford that right now. I wish Jag would stay in our yard where it's safe.
Note: The orange cat lives next door (across the fence from our driveway). There's also another orange cat at we've seen around, both are longhaired cats. I think that's the problem. Jag has short fur and get a beating and they with their long fur wouldn't get a mark on them for the most part.
Our last Tom cat (Mittens) did get into fights but he never got any serious injuries (from fighting other cats and such) and he had long fur.
I'll try to get a picture of Jag's face and of the girls too. I need to update their pages anyway.

My lump uh ... 'opened' yesterday. I've been cleaning it ever since and the humans say that it's starting to heal. So good news about my former lump, which had gotten around quarter($0.25) size before it opened.
Bad news the human that's here right now does want me inside with my open sore. Meh, I was allowed in with the lump.
Mow? Mow. Mow! = Person? I want inside. Let me in!

Seems the human (that is here all day and not in charge of the money) noticed a small lump on my right side yesterday. Today she quickly checked my sisters and they don't have any lumps. She doesn't know if the lump is bad (tumor) or not (abbess), regardless the Mom and Dad humans don't have money for kitty lumps and even if they did kitties are low on the list of important things. After all we're 'just cats'. Just wanted to post an update, we aren't on here hardly ever. Please don't go all 'take him to a vet right now!' at us because 1. We know that I 'should' go to the vet and 2. The humans in charge don't see kitties as important as the zealots and[i] some/most[/i]of you do.
From the human: We only got Jaguar because my mom didn't want to leave him by himself. He's turned out to have the best (read: laid back nothing really bothers him) personality of the three.
