|Oh man guys...I got my hat! Thanks....and look at the picture the Bush kitties chose........it has to do with my name!!!
I was adopted 15 years ago as an adult feral - I picked mama out and went to her, rubbing against her - the rescue group was amazed 'cause I never went near ANYBODY!!!
Anyway, mama adopted me and I was scared and runnin' away at home. Plus I was sick. So mama thought a long time...she saw the tiny white spot on my chest and the rest of me was all black - even my belly! So she named me "Ezekiel" for that white spot 'cause it means "Shooting Star" in Arabic. Then she changed it to Zekie.
Over the next couple of years I got friendlier so mama one day just added the "Joe" on 'cause it made me sound like a friendly old country boy. It stuck.
And that's how I got my name...last year I got a lot of Christmas gifts (like I always do) but my favorite was this catnip star...mama thought that was pretty cool. So she snapped a picture of me with my name symbol.
The Bush kitties didn't know this, but this is the pose they chose for my hard hat!!! Mama and I think that is sooo special...not that I'm going to cry or anything 'cause I'm a MCAW, (sniff...sniff) Dang allergies! (Sniff...) Gotta go get a tissue (sniff)
