Whether its napping, reading a book, feeding the birds, squirrels or outside cats, you can count on Jybow to always be by his side. You'll find them together out in the workshop tinkering on something that needs repair or rebuilding, or just taking a walk around the yard.
Jybow is Jimmy's very first pet cat. She came to us as an abandoned tiny little scruff of a fur ball with matted eyes, thin and sickly. A neighbor found her mewing loudly, shivering under his porch, hungry and weak and brought her to us. Jybow was so tiny that she fit into the slits between button holes of Jimmy shirts and while he read or watched TV, that's where she slept...when she didn't feel well, that's where she slept and when she wanted comfort, that's where she went. The bond grew between the man who didn't like cats and the cat who sought his affection.
Jimmy learned that cats are not mean ole hissy things with scratchy claws and that they're only that way if you jump at them and shew them away and make them scared of you.
Jybow wasn't the first cat around our house, but she was the one that tamed Jimmy.
