Introducing Jenko, my very own fur baby!
Jenko is ridiculously handsome – I dare say even more than his namesake – and has an attitude that changes as often as a moody teenager’s.
And be warned, he will likely be featured in this blog way more than is socially acceptable.
Every once in a while, in the middle of my day, I am suddenly reminded of the most amazing, most glorious, most serendipitous fact: I’m a cat mama!
The little hairball came into my life just before Christmas – December 11th, for future birthday wishes – and I couldn’t have asked for a better present!
Yet, the sassy, playful personality of his didn’t present itself right away.
Jenko began as a shy little boy, only coming out in the dead of night to have a nibble. Spending all day under the couch, he would make sure to stay just out of arm’s reach.
This is when I started to worry because – I’ll be honest – I was never a cat person. Growing up with dogs my whole life, the idea of getting a cat didn’t seem that appealing to me. In my head, cats were like plants: you feed them, water them, prune them and pick up any fall-outs, only to get no love in return.
But I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Once baby Jenko felt comfortable, slowly but surely he began to shine. He now loves long cuddles, greets me at the door when I get home and can’t get enough of his toys.
He’s like a tiny dog – actually, he’s huge compared to chihuahuas; my muscular little boy would kick their butts in a fight!
And despite his protest, I love taking picture of him! Here are a few of my favourites!
Fine, Jenko’s right, that’s enough for now, but don’t worry, I can guarantee you’ll get more than your prescribed dose of Jenko if you follow my blog.
Jenko and I will see you soon!
