Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK!!! – Let’s focus on him today!

I’ve had many a conversation on here with multiple pet owners who feel some anxiety about their quad-pods feeling either left out or abandoned during this journey.  I must admit, I often feel the same.  There are some nights, I’m ashamed to admit, that I forget Jack is even in the apartment (much easier for a cat owner obviously than a dog owner!).  I’ve had to make extra effort to give him attention, he does not like when I leave the apartment with Jill, often bellowing out a LARGE meow when we come back.  So…..when today, my baby boy’s TENTH BIRTHDAY came upon us, it was time to celebrate!!

A brief Jack history since you all know so much about Jill.  I was a senior in college when my best friend and I woke up one morning and said to each other: “Let’s get a kitten!”.  OK.  Except our house of 6 sorority girls was a “no pets allowed” house.  But we didn’t care.  So we went online to read the classifieds and a nice lady in Laurel, MD was selling her kittens.  And that’s how Jack became my first born.  Here is a picture of Jack’s first day with me, I can’t believe he is all grown up now:

And then, he was evicted.  Remember, no pets allowed.  Well, I was crushed.  Once again, Grandmaw and Grandpaw to the rescue!  So off to NY Jack went to live until I graduated and moved to NY.  Jack also had a scary moment when he was neutered, a very bad reaction to anesthesia which resulted in a head tremor and paralyzation of the lower half of his body.  But he pulled through!  So that is my Jack.  He is my funny, funny guy.  He is also a calendar model if you didnt know, Mr. January 9th, 2003 in the page-a-day calendar 🙂

So, here are our pictures of today’s celebration, what a great time we had, FISH OIL FOR ALL!!!!!!

Oh my goodness Jack! I missed it yesterday, but that means the party gets to keep going! I know how much that crazy human loves you and I know you are a lucky kitty to have her and Jill (and Belle). I wish you many, many more birthdays.

Awh!! Happy birthday Jack 😀
I know what you mean about the ‘left-out’ thing, we are always worrying now that Patch might feel pushed aside so we do whatever we can, but it’s still difficult at times!
You’re doing an amazing job though, they all look so happy!
