BRAVING THROUGH 2008

(A lengthy but worth reading post on the J Family Kitties)

It all started with a pair of brother and sister, Papa Jonathan and Mama Jessica, both were born on 21 March 2007 along the street of my neighborhood. Subsequently, the pair followed me home on the night of 9 June 2007 and remained in the comfort of their forever home until today. Here they were eating and sleeping well… until an incident changed their lives seven months later…

SEVEN MONTHS LATER… 4 January 2008… the start of a new J Family…

On 23 February 2008, the day of Janice was adopted by my friend (subsequently returned three days later for not being too litter smart… LOL!), a furry flea stricken kitten was thrown right at my door step. I took pity on the kitten and added him into the J Family. That was Jeremy then…

Another unexpected incident happened on 15 April 2008. Mama Jessica decided to ignore her nursing duties and went missing for 4 days when I was extremely ill. I thought it was just a getaway for taking care of the triplets so hard. The situation appeared differently after THREE MONTHS. On 22 June 2008… I had the twins, Jimmy and Joey.

When I thought EIGHT would be enough in the J Family, another unexpected stray came knocking on my door for food as early as 18 August 2008. She eventually did not go away as the many that had visited within 2008 and claimed my house as hers. That’s Jolyn… the 9th and latest member of the J Family Kitties…

I hope the number will stop here as there could be another health disaster as Janice getting weird “horns” and the rest getting sick all at the same time. Although I still did received many uncalled for visits throughout the month of December, I had decided to put on hold any other adoptions for 2009 until I had settled the remaining of their outstanding medical bills. Geez! That few weeks old stray kitten has fur like Jeremy… Oops… STOP THINKING DADDY CRIZ!!

Anyway, it has been a great 2008 for the J Family Kitties. Without all the love, support and prayers given by you, they won’t be here to amuse you more. Thank you everybody for showing so much support and compassion towards the kitties.

Happy New Year and may 2009 and years ahead bring you more love, happiness, wealth and health!

Signing off for 2008,
Criz & the J Family Kitties.

By the way, will you get them neutered so they dont keep multiplying?
