... though it is clear that "one" of you is not quite ready...
"what's that you say? you don't like blue? but it goes so well with your blue-tiful eyes, dear!"

Today would be my adorable Jax's 9th birthday, so I thought I would share his story in remembrance of the sweetest boy I have ever known and it all began when his Daddy Cat entered my life...
Daddy Cat was born in my garage on May 2, 2000, when a stray in my neighborhood decided to adopt me; I called them Orange Cat/Mom and White Cat/Daddy...I had Orange Cat fixed and mother and son ran around together until Orange Cat disappeared on Halloween 2000; the very next morning, a kitten about 8 weeks old was sleeping in some Tupperware in my garage and she and White Cat became fast friends...On May 13, 2001/Mother's Day!, that little girl gave birth to a litter in my garage and I kept 1 of their kittens, a beautiful sweet boy named Jax=which is how Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat got their names at the vet when I took them to get fixed!...They made a fabulous family; Jax was a smaller version of Daddy Cat and they were best friends who went everywhere together, I was blessed to witness such devotion in their family unit...Jax was the sweetest boy I have ever known...He loved me and trusted me so much, he came home when he was bitten by a snake in August 2005 and cried for me with all his might; I rushed him to the vet and he went into a coma in my arms there...He received a blood transfusion from Daddy Cat (you have to provide the blood-who knew??...I was about 3 miles from the vet so I rushed home and grabbed Daddy Cat, thank goodness he was there)...Anyway, I had to leave Jax for 5 days, picking him up from the regular vet every evening at 5pm to drop him off at the Emergency Clinic until 7 am the next morning and starting over at the regular vet again so he could have around the clock treatment...I moved Jax into my home for about 6 weeks after he came home to recuperate; Calle and Halle thought he was their boyfriend...He was such a wonderful kitty to everyone (he was very good to my first Siamese, Nikki too; she was a senior kitty and he always approached her with love and kitty kisses!!)...Anyway, sadly, Jax disappeared from my front porch on July 9, 2007; I put out hundreds of flyers and visited the pound every other day for about 2 months, walked the neighborhood for those 2 months, but never found him...It will always haunt me not knowing what happened to him and not having his body to show Mommy and Daddy so they would understand; they both grieved for Jax by not hardly leaving the front yard for months, waiting for him to come home...My Nikki's death was the biggest heartbreak of my life, she was my baby for 20 years (1984-2004), but I consider Jax's disappearance the biggest kitty tragedy of my life, I will always regret losing him too soon...He was a special, fun boy with so much love to give; his picture is on my sidebar, along with my Nikki...I am so thankful for all the kitties that have brought so much love into my life.

Update on the stray black and white kitty: He was neutered last week and I brought him home Friday afternoon; I gave him some canned food and off he went, glad to be back in the neighborhood...He's been back 2 times for food and loving; I last saw him Saturday night...I will continue to care for and post about him and hope he will eventually be integrated into our family.
