    Hello Darling Jakob
    I'm also a deaf kitty, but I'm white. We are special and therefore are entitled to be treated special...I remind my Mommy and Daddy of this everyday. Enjoy being Cat of the Day. I was one on Dec.26, 2009.
    Your Meow Friend,

    Jakob is DIVINE and somehow has aquired the best, most loving family he could ever hope to have!!! YAAAAAY Jakob, our beautiful COTD! I had a deaf cat and didn't know for years too. Snow always came when the can was opened, but then the thundering stampede of her 4 bros. and sisters might have tipped her off. It's not that easy to tell. Jakob is perfect never the less Have a wonderful, special day Peace and love

    Dear Jakob- so when you are on the chair you are King James?
    I really enjoyed your story- ot is a heartwarming one. It gave me a good laugh to hear that you got a terrorist sibling so that Katie coudl have a little peace and quiet and I suffered with you when that bad bad dog got you.
    I am glad that you found the purrfect meowmie and the purrfect vet

    The last Cat that my prents had was a white Cat called Missy, and she lasted the longest as she was never allowed outside.
    My Purrfect Little Princess went deaf late in life , and I had to be careful when I approached her as she would really go to sleep.

    You are such a Graet Prince of a Cat < Jakob, and we are glad that you were found as a feral Kitten, and that you survived that Mean Dog attack.

    You are sure a Great Cat Jakob, and we are so happy that you have Found Your Home with Companions Katie ^^ and Jazz.

    Greetings and very happy Cat of the Day to you, your highness! How regal you look, Jakob, posing so proudly on your throne; surveying your kingdom and watching over your subjects so dutifully!
    Wow, what a rescue story is yours, Jakob, and what an amazing sequence of events followed your homcoming, ones I'm sure even your "cat lady," rescuer Mommy was not prepared for! I was on the edge of my seat, reading of your trials and tribulations, and so relieved to learn in the end that your story couldn't have had a happier ending!
    I have to believe that a higher power had a hand in leading your Mommy to you that fateful day, knowing full well that the love and services, the devotion and dedicaiton of a very special forever family, one able to meet YOUR very special needs, would be required! Bless your wonderful family for opening up their home and hearts to one most deserving kitty, pulling out all of the stops in helping to heal you, body and soul, in your time of needl! There is definitely a very special place waiting for you, brave and beautiful Jakob, and your family, up in heaven!
    I hope you're enjoying a very special day, sweet boy, celebrating to the max with your humans and furry sibs Katie and Jazz, being loved and spoiled to the max!
    Love to you, precious Jakob! Long and happy life to you!

    Special Jakob

    Bless you and your family for keeping this beautiful tabby (who resembles my Angel Beyli so much). So often cats and dogs are returned or abandoned for the slightest disability so hats off to you for not giving up on this fella given his deafness. It must have been very scary for him when he was attacked and shaken by the dog - many of my friends and I are hoping that one day cats will not be allowed to be out unattended to keep them safer. Many cats in Montreal and surrounding areas are killed by cars, attacked by dogs, raccoons, feral cats, etc., poisoned by cruel neighbors, etc. I know some feel it takes away their freedom but I think if you could ask a cat which they prefer they would much rather be loved and safe for many years then have a shorter life with a painful death. And then there will also be less heartbreak from those who love them and less vet bills too!

    Take care of your special boy.
    Please have your pets sterilized as soon as possible to lower, and one day hopefully eliminate, unwanted and abandoned pets. It IS our responsibility. Adopting from a shelter also helps - encouraging breeders just adds to the overpopulation.

    Angel Beyli's Mom thanks you!

    From Jakob's Mommy

    Thank you all so much for your precious, loving comments about my sweet Prince Jakob - - they meant a lot to me! I laughed out loud about the story of the 'thundering stampede' tipping off Snow that it was time to eat! I loved each and every comment all of you made - - they touched my heart and I love you all for loving animals so much and caring enough to make such wonderful comments!

    BTW, Jakob still tries to terrorize Katie by blocking her paths or cornering her. He still hasn't figured out that I catch him because I can hear HER hissing at him! He has figured out, though, that when he feels me running toward him, he knows the water bottle is next and he takes off! LOL

    Attached is another photo of Jakob taken the same day as the 'throne' photo. I partially clipped him this summer and it hasn't all grown back yet. This is where he lies while I am on the computer, under his 'sunning' lamp! And you can bet that none of my cats have been allowed out (even if I'm present) since that incident - - I feel so bad that that happened and I know that my mistake could have cost Jakob his life.

    I made it a point to go by the place Jakob was found for a long time after that to try to find other cats and/or signs for a missing kitten, but nothing. I am so glad that I didn't - - I love him so much! I would never return a cat/kitten because they aren't perfect - - that would be like returning one of my two-legged children (which I HAVE been sorely tempted to do!).

    Thank you all again and God Bless You!

    Good evening, sweet Sir Jakob! You look so regal and dignified on your special chair! I hope you and your meowmie, kitty siblings Katie and Jazz had a very special day celebrating! Happy Cat of the Day to you!!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Lucky Jakob

    It is so very heartening to read cat stories such as yours with Jakob. Quite obviously you are a splendid person with her values in order. Your true and wonderful tale made my evening on an otherwise very gloomy day. Myself, I would spend my last dime for the welfare of my beloved cats, and last go round I pretty nearly did that. (I'm up in years on a constrained fixed income. You know the drill.)

    Green Grow The Rashes, O

    Chorus
    Green grow the rashes, O;
    Green grow the rashes, O;
    The sweetest hours that e'er I spend,
    Are spent among the kitties, O.
    1.
    There's nought but care on ev'ry han',
    In every hour that passes, O:
    What signifies the life o' man,
    An' 'twere na for the kitties, O.
    2.
    The war'ly race may riches chase,
    An' riches still may fly them, O;
    An' tho' at last they catch them fast,
    Their hearts can ne'er enjoy them, O.
    3.
    But gie me a cannie hour at e'en,
    My arms about my kitty, O,
    An' war'ly cares an' war'ly men
    May a' gae tapsalteerie, O!
    4.
    For you sae douce, ye sneer at this;
    Ye're nought but senseless asses, O;
    The wisest man the warl' e'er saw,
    He dearly lov'd the kitties, O.
    5.
    Auld Nature swears, the lovely dears
    Her noblest work she classes, O:
    Her prentice han' she try'd on man,
    An' then she made the kitties, O.

    [I'm confident that Robert Burns would approve my emendations!]
