NO but really, that is amazing!!!
JoJo... sweet? HAH!! That holy terror earned her 'bad kitty' nickname of DC very early on. She has her sweet moments... really.
|And Garfield is ONLY 10 (almost) months old!!!
We bought him in the middle of May, he was then 8 weeks old, but the vet doubts it, he said more like 6 weeks old.
Anyways, so going on the fact that he was only 6 weeks old when we bought him that would make him only (almost) 10 months old!
He was very sick when we bought him. Very skinny and sickly.
So once he got over the coccidia, he just balloned into this big ol' orange lovey dovey boy!! He is a big boy.
I adopted JoJo from the Humane Society (or spca... can't remember now) back in Syracuse, NY in early 2002. She was 11 months old and scrawny. She was in a large cat room with about 40 other cats... most of them older and MUCH bigger, so she was not Alpha Kitty. She wasn't getting as much food as she needed. Her coat was lacking sheen and she was just so skinny. barely healthy, IMHO. She adopted me (her 'arrival' story is here
), came home that day and was a freaked out little girl for weeks. I adopted Jack about 6 weeks later, hoping he'd help her out of her shell... he did, getting her into as much trouble as he got into himself (never leave a loaf of banana nut bread on the counter at my place, unless hermetically sealed... bad things happen). In the nearly 3 years since then... she's grown into the Alpha Kitty role very well, and up to 14.5 pounds. She's my Chunky Monkey... She's a real lovebug...as soon as I sit on the couch, she's waiting for my lap.
|Thank you so much for sharing pictures of JoJO and comparing them to my Garfield. Its just amazing!
you are so welcome. looking at the dishwasher pics of Garfield made me realize how close their markings are... I had to say something. Garfield is a gorgeous boy... of course, I AM
biased a bit here.
As for making sure you didn't have JoJo... trust me, when I'm at the computer, 95% of the time, she's either MEOW-ing around the apartment, or sitting on the back of the couch right behind me... I wouldn't have had to look very far.
