Pawing Forward: The Second Recipient of Mandy’s Hope Chest
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
On my Monday post this week you met Nitro, the first recipient of half of Mandy’s Hope Chest. Today you get to meet Jimmy, aka CJ (Charming Jack).
CJ’s new permanent family changed his name to Jimmy but they purromised us that he will always be “charming”.
Jimmy appeared out of nowhere one day at a feeding station for community cats. He was new, but clearly he had once had a home as he was also very social with the feeder. Not much time passed until he showed up with a severely injured right hind leg. The kind colony feeder trapped him and took him to my county’s animal services shelter.
They determined that Jimmy had a badly broken leg and it would prove impossible to repair. Sadly, Jimmy lost his right hind leg, most likely from having been hit by a car. Not long after his surgery, my former rescue organization, Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS) pulled Jimmy from the county shelter and transferred him to their no kill Kitty Corner. As expected, even missing one leg, Jimmy was adopted within less than a week!
Even better—he was adopted along with a play pal he found at Kitty Corner, Athena. She is now called Jilly! A great pair don’t ya think?
And please notice that Jilly quickly determined that the handmade toys from Miss Ellen of the 15 And Meowing cat blog belonged ALL to her!
Jimmy likes to semi-hide and then surprise his pal Jilly. She doesn’t mind and then a game of patty paw ensues.
That blue mousey is one of the toys Mandy gave to Jimmy. They are wonderful eco-friendly cat toys from Honest Pet Products. Be sure to check them out! I have some information about this wonderful brand at the end of this post.
When Mom L pulled out Jimmy’s bag of Incredible Cat Litter, he ran right over to see if his head matched the top of the bag!! Silly charming Jimmy!!
Jilly was tickled to be able to share in Jimmy’s bounty and once again you can see she is luv’in on one of those special Miss Ellen drumstick toys.
Mom L was so pleased to get to meet one of the senior resident cats named Chop. He is seventeen years old and very social. The new cat bed is now called The Bed of Chop.
Kitties I must tell you that TKS and I are wonderin’ if maybe we ought to have kept that way cool cat tower Jimmy got. It is a modular system and so Jimmy’s new parents can add pieces on and make it even BIGGER! Jimmy was first to test drive the tower. He doesn’t know he is missing one leg. He is runnin’ around like any other crazypants kitty!
Jimmy and Jilly each received cat food bowls like the ones TKS and I use. So did Nitro. Every kitty loves these pedestal wide bowls which don’t cause any whisker fatigue.
Jimmy is gonna be a rock star cat, just you wait and see.
I know all of my readers are relieved to see Mandy’s (aka Momma Kat) Hope Chest having a happy tails ending of its own. Mom L and I know that Mandy is purring away knowing that Jimmy and Nitro, both victims of car injuries as she was, are enjoying all the wonderful contents of her Hope Chest.
Mom L and I are also relieved to know that Mandy is at least safe and will be fed and given medical care as will her five grown kittens. I am calling this a Happy Tails Ending for Mandy’s Hope Chest. I hope you all do as well.
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
