Isn't she adorable?

I thought I would do a post on my adorable JoJo. I adopted her in 2000 from the animal rescue league. I always had cats growing up & went a year in my apt without 1. I had a horrible landlord, he had said they didn't allow cats anymore, but would let me get have a cat if I gave a pet deposit. When I was ready to adopt a cat he denied that he had said that I could have a cat. Anyway, I ended up getting him to let me have 1, but it had to be declawed. The 1st place I went to didn't have any declawed cats. The 2nd place only had Jo. So she became my baby. She was already 3 years old when I adopted her. When I moved out of the apt he wouldn't give me my deposit back, but I went above him & they gave me my $ back. She has been with me through a lot. A break up with my ex-fiance, moving back with my parents for a while, moving in with Anthony, getting married, having a sister named Tara & finally moving to NH. She will be 13 in June. According to the papers, her birthday is the day before mine. She's the sweetest cat. She's really mellow, is a lap cat & loves people. Her nicknames are Josephine Marie, Josie, Josephina. Her middle name is Marie. I think all pets should have middle names. All of mine always did.

Yes, she is adorable! I'm glad you were able to adopt her.

I really miss my kitty Scratches. I had him for 13 years and it wasn't long enough. He was often sickly and I paid a fortune for him in vet bills over the years. He was worth every penny though and I would do it all over again if I could.

After he died, I got another chihuahua because it was just too soon for another cat. I got Chico like a month after Scratches died because it was painfully obvious that Shiver (my other chi) hated being the only pet.

Scratches died a year ago last Oct. and I still think about and miss him every single day.

Thanks for sharing JoJo's story!
