Jim is probably one of the most tolerant cats you will ever meet. He loves attention, and is such a gentle giant (emphasis on the giant, despite the vet insisting he is a healthy weight). His hobbies include sitting on people’s knees, purring from some place deep inside (you feel it instead of hearing it), begging for attention, stealing attention from Rosie, chasing non-existent mice and attempting to steal food … oh, and sleeping. Lots of sleeping!
He’s a creature of habit, so a typical day for Jim goes something like this:
Wake up and wait by the door for me to come downstairs
Attempt to escape upstairs so he can wake everyone up, but then realise he hasn’t been fed yet so come running back sheepishly
Yell until he gets fed, then brush round your legs and trip you up several times before demolishing all but five pieces of his breakfast. (which he makes up for by stalking our cereal).
Then it’s a three minute dash to the loo outside (AKA the middle of my flower patch, yes Jim, I recognise that cat shaped spot of flattened marigolds)
Find a lap to sleep on, even if it is just while the lap owner ties their shoelaces.
Bring on Nap Time!!!
Mad moment with some toys
Time for tea
Spots the prey
In for the catch
What a happy chappie:)
(Don’t worry, tea is usually kitty kibble, this was when my brother visited – as you can see, he isn’t familiar with the term “diet”)
Then it’s finding ways to distract us while he steals the rest of our tea
But afterwards, he feels guilty, so runs upstairs to drag a “I’m sorry teddy” down.
Then it’s back up to find a comfy bed, or a friendly hand…
… before a quick evening drink (he’s ever so predictable)
Settling down for the night
So there you go, a day in the life of Jim:)
This was a three day project, after Jim got jealous of Rosie’s post, so hopefully he will be happy now!
