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.
Oh! Look what mommy has to eat. TURKEY. I like TURKEY. Mommy open this, I need to eat some TURKEY!!!!
Really?? You are going to take my picture instead of feeding me this glorious TURKEY?? You are a mean mommy. I wish I had thumbs because this would be so in my tummy. ~~Miss 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
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.
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
Excuse me! Do you mind? Can’t a girl get some privacy around here? ~CeCe
“I may let you nap near me but I will nap with one eye open.” ~CeCe
“Whatever.” ~Bo Jangles
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
Come back to bed Meowmy, snuggling is the greatest way to start the weekend. I mean, how can you resist a cuddle buddy like me? ~Neko
When trying to catch the eye of passersby, I opt for complimentary colors. I think red is my color, but Mommy says I look good with any color. I prefer rouge et noir. ~Neko
When studying shades of brown it always helps if you have a brown tabby to use in said study. Miss CeCe was happy to oblige.
