Trust

BoBelly

Mr. Bo Jangles was a shelter cat who chose my brother when he and his wife visited the local Humane Shelter in Tacoma, Washington. Bo’s life before finding us was one of the betrayals of trust and survival on the streets.

The shelter told my brother that Bo’s previous owners had left him when they moved away and he was living on the streets when a lady witnessed him get hit by a car.  She brought him to the shelter explaining his story as she knew it.

Bo was severely undernourished and was sick. This didn’t matter to my brother when Bo reached out and grabbed his attention. It was instant love.  He came to live with us and it took him quite a while to warm up to anyone but my brother.  My brother gave him the medicine that was prescribed and slowly Bo warmed up to the rest of us.

When Bo came to live with us, he never purred and never showed his belly.  It took a couple years before one day he began to purr. It was the most beautiful sound in the world. Not long after he began rolling over on his back and showing us his belly. Our street cat had found HOME.

Bo now purrs constantly and loves to head butt and give kisses. His tail is almost constantly in a question mark. He has come a long way from being abandoned and left to die. He has become the most Jangliest Bo in the world and we love him to pieces.

A Reason to Celebrate

Today is my handsome boy’s sixth birthday. If you would have told me back then how much he would mean to me, I probably would have laughed at you. Not because I would have thought it impossible, I just didn’t think there would ever be a cat to replace my Pooh Bear in my heart.

Now I realize that I didn’t have to worry about Neko replacing Pooh. I learned that my heart was big enough for both of my boys.

So here is my beautiful Neko Dubh posing on his birthday.

Brotherly Love

Go away humans. There is nothing here to see. Just two brothers showing their love for one another. Close the door and walk away. ~Dominic & Bo Jangles

Meeting In The Middle.

Excuse me, did I invite you to sit on my blanket? ~CeCe

I’m not doing anything. I just want to be close to you Ma’am. ~Dominic

Y’all are harshing my mellow. I am looking for the sun. I need a sunbeam to nap in. ~Bo Jangles

Recuperating

Neko ended 2018 by having dental surgery. His hair still hasn’t grown back from the shaving for his IV. He is slowly getting back to his old self except for some reason he is scared of Bo Jangles. He had lost so much weight I am impatient for him to gain it all back.

I have to say please keep up with your furbabies dental care. Poor Neko lost ten teeth due to a nasty infection. He may never be able to nibble on his favorite treat(Temptations) again. If you don’t want to brush their teeth, there are toys and snacks designed to help keep their teeth healthy.

Also regular check-ups are good to keep in mind. Let this new year be the start of a beautiful smile for your furbabies. They will be grateful.
