Jazz



This is Jazz. Yes, she is full grown, she's just a tiny little girl. She weighs about 7 lbs and is 11 years old. She is a polydactyl too, although you probably can't tell from the pic. Her nicknames are Squeaks, or Squeaky because she is so vocal. She loves to sleep on the bureau, under the lamp, like she is warming herself up. She also sleeps under the blankets for hours on end, but only if i'm not in the bed. If I'm in bed, she sleeps next to me but on top of the blankets. She's funny! Jazz had major surgery a few months ago to remove a fibrosarcoma. It was a very sad time for us, and the first few weeks of recovery were really tough. Lots of meds, and she had to be isolated from the rest of the household. But she is doing amazingly well today. She does all her regular things, like jumping in windows, and drinking from the tub and sinks. We have to visit the specialist every month though to make sure the tumor doesn't grow back. If you find any lumps or bumps on your kitties, I highly recommend getting them checked a.s.a.p. It definately makes a difference if they can get it sooner rather than later. ~Jessica >^..^<

Good Morning All!

Oh Jazz is just so pretty! She looks like my old cat (RIP) Arthur. Does she have a double coat? She's quite the fighter, she wan't ready to throw in the towel just yet! What an amazing little lady!

Jazz is a beauty! I just love her deep grey coloring. And yes, what a tough girl she has been. Glad she recovered fully!

Jess - Ginger is the last that needs to be posted. I think everyone else has been posted. I hope we didn't miss anyone! Name off all your fuzzes and I'll double check. You can just email me if you want.

Oh, Jazz is beautiful. Her fur looks so rich and full and shiny. It's just gorgeous. I'm so glad she has fully recovered. And yes, she is a little bitty thing, isn't she.

This little girl is so soft and glossy, oh, and polydactyl. Bless her heart, she is also a tough-as*, isn't she.

Jazz is just so petite and pretty.

Now I want to go back and figure all Jessica's cats....

Oh, if anyone wonders why the Cat Blogosphere isn't updated or Mr. Linky isn't allowing you to enter your Tabby, Torti, Toesie Tuesdays...

the wonderful 'it's no longer in Beta' Blogger has bombed. No one can post in it. I can post in my OLD blogger, but not the new one.

i know i should just create a blog so everyone can figure them all out...LOL...i think Ginger is the only one to not be posted yet but she'll get her day too i'm sure :)

Jazz is totally a tough as*! LOL!!! her surgery was about 8 months ago now and you'd never know it except that her fur never really grew back fully on the one side. she has such cattitude it's unreal. i'm really the only person she's ever liked (besides my sister but she only visits once or twice a yr)
she stands up to all the other cats... if anyone so much as comes near her, she growls but she doesn't attack. actually, she'll lay close to Fendi and Ging but that's about it, everyone else better leave her alone.

Such a sweet little fuzz girl! I'm glad she's doing so well after surgery. That must have been so scary!

Another grand kitty I'm losing track. Are they all posted except Ginger? Good thing they aren't grand kids. I would be a really bad grandmother.

Jazz is such a pretty girl. Looks like she is a velvety grey. So thankful she came through her surgery just fine and I pray she stays tumor free.

awww my sweet little niece! she sure is one tough cookie but a softie too! such a teeny tiny little girl with the cutest lil' thumbs you've ever seen!

Jazz is so sweet and pretty. I must agree that she is very similar to Lacey, especially the way they sit and also their whisker pads. Cute...

Does she also meow?? Glad to know that she is keeping up well.
