Pet of the Week


Meet Jaime!

This week’s featured Pet Pal is Mr. James K. Pusskin aka “Jamie” ­ a 3 year old short haired guy who wears a smashing black and white tuxedo.Mr. Pusskin is neutered, current on vaccinations, litter box trained, and DESPERATE to find a loving new home.

Jaime’s Story…
Hello – James here. Sigh – I mean Jaime. I do abhor the whole nickname concept. It just seems – well – a bit too informal – familiar if you will. It just does not seem proper to me. Oh I know – I have been told that I am old fashioned. Indeed – I feel as if I were born to the wrong era. I was meant for a different time. A time when formal introductions were made when making ones acquaintance. When people – er – cats were referred to by their full – and yes – proper names – such as Mr. James K. Pusskin – not – sigh – Jaime.

As much as I am ridiculed – I stand on those traditions of the past. I wait for you to approach me as a proper gentleman – er – cat should do. I wait for you to formally introduce yourself and I stand at a respectable distance to await your laying on of hands. Some people mistake this for being shy or scared – not in the least. It is simply respect that requires me to contain myself. Let me reassure you – I enjoy the laying on of hands as much as the next cat – but it is not in my nature to be forward or pushy.

And you should have no fear that I am given to excess in my nature the likes of which I have witnessed here from other lesser mannered cats. Cats who dare swipe or nip the very hand that caresses them. No – I am calm and contained in my emotions and will treat you accordingly. I pride myself on my restraint and calm exterior. This does not mean however that I am completely immune to the pursuits of the current day cat – such as play. Oh yes – I do give myself over to that grand exercise from time to time and I am sure you shall find this simply charming.

So – If my aforementioned resume suits your needs and you should wish to arrange a suitable introduction I shall be happy to receive you. Please ask for Mr. James – er – sigh – Jaime.

Mr. Pusskin’s Meet Your Match Felinality is Orange ­ Sidekick Like all sidekicks, I’m just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don’t go looking for trouble but I’m no scaredy-cat, either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.
