Jax
« on: November 06, 2012, 09:05:56 PM »
We adopted Jax just a few weeks ago. We'd been contemplating getting a cat for a while; I've always had cats, and even with rats and a dog, the house just felt empty. On top of that, Sansa was trying desperately to befriend every cat she came across, and none of them wanted anything to do with her. Jax was up for adoption in the front of our pet store. I have to admit, I wasn't set on him at first. I have a soft spot for black cats and I had my heart set on finding one, but they didn't have many black cats in the cat room, and none of them had the personality I was looking for. Jax, on the other hand, was incredibly mellow. He had no problem with Sansa coming up to his cage and was eager to be picked up and cuddled. Although it took me a while to realize it, I'd found my cat.

You can do pretty much anything with this cat. You can hold him on his back, upside down, on your shoulders. He'll sit and cuddle and purr forever, (he came up to cuddle while I was writing this) and he plays with Sansa with endless energy, they are best friends. Jax was his foster name, but we liked it enough to keep it. It also ties in with a character from another mutual favorite book of ours (The Wise Man's Fear). He's approximately a year old, although I'd guess a little younger. I forgot to ask the vet for an age estimate during his checkup, but I'm certain he's gotten bigger in the few weeks we've had him.

Anyway, time for the best part. Most of his pictures include Sansa, because they are just about inseparable.



From his first day (they warmed up to each other very quickly. And yes, they do have matching ducky toys.)



Sansa loves to cuddle him. He isn't always a fan.



When he does enjoy it, it's the cutest thing ever.







And when she goes out on the patio, he misses her (that purple at the top is her bandana).





They play constantly.



I promise you, they are playing in this picture.



More to come!

I also have to include this sequence of shots that I got the other day, demonstrating his love/hate relationship with puppy cuddles.

It sort of looks like he enjoys the puppy cuddles until it involved tongue in the ear.   :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

They are so cute together! I'm really glad you were able to find a cat that is perfect for everyone. Jax and Sansa remind me of Bat and Luma. When Lu plays on the bed, she'll find her way to Bat for kisses and snuggles. They'll also pick on each other which is always really silly.

I wish my cats would get along with Diver that way! Pretty much all of their interactions involve hissing at some point or another.

We're watching the Puppy Bowl pre-game. Jax is more interested in it than Sansa.

Awww, they appear to be a perfect match. Love Jax's eyes...looks like he has eyeliner around his left eye.

Oh wow, it has been way too long since I've posted here. I need to do more regular updates, but this is a special occasion. Today is Jax's "gotcha" day! Here is a picture of him taken one year ago today, shortly after bringing him home. He settled into Sansa's dog bed and she curled up in front of him to make sure we weren't going to take her new cat away. I can't believe the baby faces on these two, they have grown so much over the past year!

It took me all day, but I did eventually convince these two to re-create last year's shot last night.

This is normal, right...? :yelcutelaugh:

He's holding a treat called a "Lickety Stik," and he likes being cradled while he enjoys it. He'll do this for anyone; I have a friend who loves doing this to him whenever she's over.

That is such a silly treat! He looks like he enjoys it very much. I love his foot pads in the first photo.  :yelcutelaugh:

He looks like a baby with a bottle!  :)

I might have to see if I can find one of those for my cats, I'd love to see what they'd do!
