Adopting Jerry

Today Jerry arrived!

He's our new kitten. He's extremely cute...

...and sleek! He arrived very early in the morning. At 7:15am because his previous mistress brought him by night train all the way from the Drôme where he lived with his momcat until today. We think he's adjusting well...

..he first said hello then good-bye to all of us when we had to go to school, then, Mom told us, he...

...thoroughly explored the living room floor...

...all the while...

...cleverly avoiding the guest trap (he's not a guest after all, this is his home now)...

...then, he discovered all on his very own, the smiley-face ball on the piano which he knocked down and had a good half-hour's fun chasing after!





He was quite tuckered out after that...

...and found a spot to rest on...



...Luckily, Papa was there to save him because those purple benches are not the most comfortable seats to curl up on in our house!


Yes, Papa, after refusing for years even to discuss the idea of a pet, was now touched to the point of accepting to SMILE for a photo he knew full well Mom was bound to put on the blog! Mom tells us he not only smiled he even said " I'll be a mother to you little Lord Jerry!" Then Papa...

...read aloud to him from Joshep Conrad...

...then, after announcing that Jerry was going to be "his" cat...

...Papa fell asleep!

And Jerry too!

Well, almost.



Luckily, I - Henry that is - came home from school to give him a bit more fun!




Jerry and Malcolm found the warm, sunny spot on the couch and Malcolm tends to think Jerry is HIS cat...

...he sure enjoyed taking a catnap on Malcolm's bed as we played Game Cube in any case.


Still, Mom thinks he might actually be HER cat...

...he does seem to enjoy her computer...

And he even napped on her desk, on her...

...book!

Welcome Jerry we already love you!

  1. A kitten! What a lovely surprise!

    Looks like Jerry already loves his new home, at least he has made a very complete inspection of it and has found numerous cozy sleeping spots. The favorite one is going to reveal itself soon, I am sure, as may the ultimate “owner” too.

    Kittens are very curious so I expect that le Fish is going to get a once-over from Jerry too... Perhaps le fish will have to learn some new disappearing tricks to keep Jerry guessing rather than fishing...

    Question for Michelle: does Jerry remind you of another cute kitten, Beauregard, I believe his name was?

    I am looking forward to many more photos and stories of Jerry’s upcoming adventures, as the cat without a hat.

  2. Atlee will be excited to see all these pics when she gets home! Congratulations on your new Pirate! I'm sure he will look quite rakish with a Pirate hat and eye patch.

  3. Welcome Jerry!
    You are awfuly cute.
    I have a feeling of... closeness, somehow, as if Jerry were my cat.
    I know you'll care for him wonderfully, for me.

  4. Bas les pattes, Saint Monique! "Bas les pattes" is the cool French way of saying "Paws off!" He's OUR cat! But that's just your jealous little sister speaking! We'll share Jerry if you share Katie the Beagle...

    Answer to Omi's question : he does look like Beauregard doesn't he but I think Jerry actually has a "plus beau regard" or "nicer eyes"
