Jinxy, how to describe Jinxy...well for starters he was by far the most interesting cat I've ever had the privilege of knowing.

I only had him for 2 and 1/2 years but I got him when he was no bigger then my hand. He was born in a barn and was not socialzed what so ever. He hated people. I let him have his time and just left him alone. One day when I was watching a movie he just crawled up on my chest and started purring. He was at my side ever since.

He absolutely adored everyone and everyone loved him. He loved my other cat, Jezebelle, more then anyone, though, even though she had an obsession with sucking on his ears. He watched out for her, almost parented her. They used to fall asleep together on the chair in the living room everynight. It was so cute. I remember Jezebelle had to stay overnight at the vet once and Jinxy was a wreck. He just sat in "their spot" all night with this pathetic depressed look on his face. They were so close.

My room mate told me that 15 minutes before I was supposed to come home from work Jinx would wait by the door and wouldn't move until I was there. Then he'd jump up on the table near the door, make me pet him and start talking up a storm. Yes, Jinx talked. Obvioulsy not like us but if you talked to him he'd respond.

I miss that.

For the 1st 2 years of Jinx's life he was very healthy. Shortly after his 2nd birthday I began to notice changes in his behavior. He wasn't as active, didn't eat as much and when he when he did eat he had a hard time keeping it down. I brought him to the vet and found out that he had liver problems that would possibly eventually lead to liver failure. They gave me antibiotics to stop the infection and I thought that he was fine.

About 2 months later, Jinx's health took a turn for the worst. He got very sick, very quick. It was literally within a day. When I woke up in the morning he was fine. When I got home from work he could barely move. It was so sad seeing him in so much pain.

I immediately rushed him to the emergency animal hospital where within a 1/2 an hour of being there they informed me that Jinxy's liver and kidnees were failing and the best option was to end his suffering and have him put down. I said my goodbyes and Jinxy was gone.

It's been almost two months now and Jezebelle still searches around the house and cries for him. She seems so lonely and depressed it's so sad. She lost her life mate.

We'll always miss him.
