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.
I thought about calling this post “Da Birds” but decided to just title it as you see.
I grew up being told that birds fly south for the winter. I grew up in West Central Illinois. For some reasons I always thought of Florida never Texas. As you can see they do come here to the Lone Star state.
This was at the end of the day. And doesn’t even begin to show all of the feathered creatures. Of course I had to get one with them in flight.
Magic, the Wonder Dog has been my buddy since I walked in the door. He still is trying to understand the fascination I have with the white tip of his tail. We are the official greeting team. He barks his welcome and warning, and I greet each visitor personally. ~Neko
When bathing, always remember to clean in all the grooves. Just like I am showing here by cleaning in between my toes. I know. Toe jam is a draw back but the things one does to be a handsome fella like me. ~Dominic
