Jones the kitten

He and Cookie have an amicable calm relationship: Monster is plotting his overthrow. I have been gifted with a few cuddling and patting opportunities, and am trying to tire him out to the point where I can take lots of photos in a bid to write an irresistible ad to find him a new home. This is the only photo so far in which he is in focus: he seems to feel that stillness is the enemy and it must be defeated!

We are calling him Jones, after the cat in Alien, for a long and complicated set of reasons. So far, he answers to 'Chicken', which seems to be the only English word he recognises. And he purrs like a little engine.

He is so cute there should be some sort of warning. I have a theory that cats are born with PhDs in Human Manipulation.

he's adorable!

And he's got a very sweet nature and is extremely toilet trained. If only we had a larger house …

ARE YOU KIDDING ME. That nose! Those eyes! THE TINY FEET.

I KNOW! And you can't even hear the cute little mews and feel the soft ears! It's ridiculous.

He is adorable! I hope you'll find him a good home.

He really is lovely. It will be a wrench to see him go, but our house really isn't big enough for three cats. And he is very long, I think he will not be a tiny cat!

A Tuxedo cat wearing little white athletic socks!

He fits in very well with our monochrome!

That's a very dainty little chap. :D I'm sure you'll find him a lovely new home in no time, he's so pretty and charming.

He really is a darling. I have to make myself get onto rehoming him, as I just want to sit here and cuddle him.

So adorable. Big drawback of the nets that we cannot cuddle via cyberspace. Chicken sounds like a great name for a cat. *nods*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2014 01:20 pm (UTC)
I could not call him Chicken because Monster is obsessed with chicken, to the point that she knows the word and if she hears us saying it, assumes we are about to buy some for her and gets very cross if none is forthcoming!

Has your hat arrived yet?

You sure you will be able to part from him? He is adorable!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2014 01:21 pm (UTC)
It will be very hard, but our house is so tiny that three cats will be just ridiculous. Two and a quarter cats is chaos enough!

fucking hell such a beauty cutie. i think you just wrote the ad right there. i also prefer chicken to jones for originality?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 27th, 2014 01:27 pm (UTC)
Alas, Monster would take it as a sign we really DO want her to eat him.

I'll take him. I'll need a replacement for my cat in a minute after I kill that loud piece of fur, and they look almost the same, sans 14 years of difference. Can you ship him to Poland, thank you?

And oh, how typical. Cats coming to the word chicken. Mine are just the same.

Too bad you are so far away - he's nearly an exact match to my little Tonks!

I want him! *grabby paws*

I miss having a tuxedo cat. Pfeffles needs a playmate. And, I need another cat like a hole in the head.
