JoJo

On a visit to OlderSon and The Equestrienne's house, I consider myself lucky if I catch a tiny glimpse of JoJo. She's not a lap cat. She stays in the basement, only reluctantly showing her face upstairs if she hears the rattle of the kitty treat bag.

Her mother was a feral cat who gave birth to a litter of kittens in the wild. JoJo was the only kitten to be caught and brought home. Nobody knows what happened to her brothers and sisters. That was almost seven years ago, and she's still very nervous around people.
She'll never change. Her mother taught her well.

I know feral well...the kittens you know. Drake the sweet cat we just lost was a feral cat. It took years for her to warm up to us but she did eventually. We used to have contests to see who could hold her the longest. "Mom, I held her for 14 seconds." my son would yell. JoJo is beautiful, just beautiful.

Cats are just the best; they are so idiosyncratic and independent. Lovely long coat on JoJo.

she's lovely. i'll bet if she knew how much she was loved by all these strangers she'd be more comfortable with people.
