Jack Attack!

Hello, everyone - I'd like to introduce you to Jack:


He loves to "help" with laundry (what he was doing in the above photo) ... or just about anything.
He's hard to photograph, because he is on the move a lot!

He doesn't stay still for very long.  Here is the first time I tried to take his picture.


The Tim was actually able to get this one.


Jack joined our family this past Sunday.  He is a tiny boy, only five months old, and has only one eye ... not that he seems to notice at all.  He is bouncy, happy, a lovebug, and completely ridiculous.  He never, ever seems to stop purring.  I will happily write a longer post later about how he came to join us, and what happened with his eye, but I wanted you to meet him and get a look at how cute he is!

In the meantime, we are thrilled ... well, at least The Tim and I are thrilled.  The other cats are shocked - SHOCKED I tell you! - that such a thing could happen.  There's no growling or hissing though, so it's just a matter of time until it's no big deal that he is here.

Yay! How great that there is no yowling and hissing! Thanks for adopting a special needs kitty (from the mom of another special needs kitty).

Oh what a cutie! There's a one-eyed cheetah at the Toronto Zoo... I'm pretty sure his name is Jack too!

Welcome ONE EYED Jack. Im sooooo happy for you and I want to hear all about it. My experience with introducing new cats is slow slow slow. Lots of catnip. Lots of litter boxes. He's a winner!

Lucky you in the no growling and hissing arena. Our cats still do that after almost 9 years together. Jack looks like a cutie. Funny thing DD#1 just adopted a Jack cat also; the rest of his name is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart though.

Awwww! My favorite cat of all time was one-eyed. I named him Pirate and miss him to this day!

Hi Jack! You are adorable but little boys don't like to be called that. I think you are going to have the best life ever!

Congratulations on your new cat! Jack looks like a nimble fellow! I'm glad you're all bringing each other joy. I love the way you described the other cats reaction. I clutched my pearls for the other cats haha!
