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.
It’s pretty bad when a girl has to do her own pedicure. These claws don’t do themselves. But on a bright note I have some gorgeous toe beans. ~CeCe
No, I am not jealous that mommy even has a black cat on her keychain. Can you tell she is partial to shamrocks? I am still the prettiest girl kitty in the house. ~Miss CeCe
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
On these short winter days, it is always a blessing to find a gift from the sun gods. When one finds such a gift, one must lay down and worship the sunbeam. ~CeCe
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.
I hope you all enjoy this Black Cat Holiday aka Halloween aka All Hallow’s Eve… you get the picture. I am patiently waiting for the witching hour. I hope your day is filled with laughter and lots of candy.
For their safety, please keep your kitties inside on this day. It may fun for us, but for others, it is a time for mischief and mayhem. We need to keep our furbabies safe and happy.
Snoozing and conserving my energy for tomorrow night. After all, it is The Black Cat Holiday.
Please remember to keep your kitties inside tonight and tomorrow because it is an ugly world out there filled with people who would hurt them on this holiday. And remember that black cats aren’t bad luck, they bring you the best kind of luck with a whole lot of love added in.
Neko hasn’t been feeling well lately. He is in need of dental surgery stemming from an infection in a scratch he received in a fight with a foster cat we had. Please go check out this link Neko Vet Fund to help me get him the care he needs. Read the full story on my Go Fund Me page. If you can’t donate, please still share with others.
I have your back, brother. You rest easy. ~Dominic
It has been a rough day. I’m just going to rest my eyes. ~Bo Jangles
What? I was filing this away for a rainy day. It is a bit big for the top drawer but it is definitely top shelf. 😉
Neko has his serious face on. He looks like a real boss kitty. The truth is his pain medicine has kicked in and he is feeling just right.
