Hello new member here, LOVE my cat

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey just want to introduce myself and my loveable little buddy. I am Scott from Carlisle, PA, I am 28, I deliver tires for a company called Henderson Tire, and deliver pizza part time for Papa Johns. My cat is a sweet heart, his name is Mr Jinx and he is a two year old male tabby cat. The story of how I got him is really cool...Two years ago I was working pizza delivery( at the time a couple nights a week). One dark and stormy October night, I got this delivery to a house that was a couple miles on the road behind the shop...suburban area...well since it was cold and rainy, the woman who answered the door invited me in to the kitchen... I step in, and notice they have about ten cats, I make the comment " Wow, you have alot of cats..." ( this was small talk trying to increase my tip)...The woman asks..." do you want one??" At this point a little kitten...approxamately 4 months old strides right up to me and puts his front legs on me, starts to sniff me and proceedes to rub against me. I say "Yeah, I will be back to get this little guy...is 10pm too late??" she says no. So that night I get a 5 dollar tip( VERY good tip to give us delivery guys BTW) and a loveable little kitten...well he is now a very loveable 16lb cat and he is attatched at the hip to me lol...he sleeps in my bed with me, follows me around the house everywhere I go and even sits on the edge of the bathtub while I am taking my shower in the morning, when I get ready to leave for work in the morning, or come home at night, he wants me to rub his belly, I have read that MOST cats dont like that, so I know I have a rare kitty here...he is the best...LOL

Welcome to TCS, Scott and Mr. Jinx! Wow, 16 lbs. - that is IMPRESSIVE (any chance that he likes pizza ) I look forward to seeing pics. BTW, I'm disappointed that people tip less than $5 for pizza - no wonder they seem happy when I tip them For me, $5 would be a minimum -to me, the tip says that I appreciate the service AND I appreciate that my time is valuable and if I don't have to go out in the night to fetch home dinner... See ya in the forums! Susan

Welcome to you and Mr. Jinx. We are always glad to have new additions to the TCS family.
We also love pics, and will be delighted when you can post pics. Some of us (me) are computer nitwits and cannot post pics, so we love to see other people's.

Hmm, I wonder what the one Papa John's would say about me? Sometimes mom and I order pizza delivered when we are in town (at the place our lapidary/rockhound club meets). I do try to tip at least $3.

Hey Scott!

SO...what's his NAME??? THANKS for adopting him, and loving him and taking good care of him -- I've loved cats all my life, and think every one is so special. Right now I'm servant to 9, all rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered of course!, ranging in age from 16+ (Nicolas T. Cat) to 2 (Suha the Terrible a/k/a The Bitemouth Kitten!) "My" tabbyman is Samuda, who's 12 and loves having his belly rubbed, too. He was loping down the street following this couple outside a restaurant where I and my husband had just eaten; we were so surprised by the sight that we stopped and my husband asked the people if he was "theirs". They said no, and they wished they could keep him but couldn't -- so it was adoption time! He rode home in the car without crying or panicking or anything -- in fact, he loved it! and ever since, he's been just like you describe your pal. He's always friendly to all cats and humans, too. He's amazing! (like all cats) Anyway, great meeting you and hope to see pix of your buddy, and put up some of mine soon, too!
