A friend had begged me to rescue a one eyed calico from the local kill shelter and I went to look. Unfortunately I was told she did NOT like other cats and as I already had six I knew I could not take her.
While I had been looking for her though I had passed a couple of senior kitties and decided they warranted a second look.
Jinxy was an owner surrendered, ten year old hiding in the back of her cage and the person who was helping me said she was extremely shy. Still there was something about her eyes that pulled me in.
Once I got her home and into my spare room I opened her carrier and expected a timid, fearful cat to appear. WRONG! She walked out with head and tail high, looked all around, then looked at me and proceeded to wind around my ankles. I sat on the floor and she crawled in my lap! Apparently she decided I would do nicely as her new slave.
i changed her name to Journey and she quickly proved to be a very mellow, loving cat and after tons of biscuits that didn't hurt I realized she was declawed.
A couple of days after I got her she became very sick with a URI and it took two different medications to get her well again.
Since then I have discovered she loves her harness and leash, does not need a carrier for car rides, and will sit in a shopping cart at the pet store with no problem.
Everyone that meets her comments on how sweet she is.
I have already looked into having her certified as a therapy cat and our training will start in the spring.
Oh and she gets along great with my other cats.
The reason the picture is so strange looking...I can't get her far enough away from me for a decent shot!
