    Jacquespot the Tuxedo Longhair!

    Jacquespot came to live with us when he was only four weeks old, much too young to leave his mother. However, his family, who were French (hence his name) were moving back to France and Jacquespot and his two brothers had to be put up for adoption. He needed a bit of care when he arrived, but after shots and quite a bit of petting, everyone adored him. He was awfully tiny, but had enormous whiskers and eyebrows. Later, he grew into the whiskers and eyebrows, but at first they were extraordinary. He was born on April first, so he arrived just in time for croquet season. He immediately got into the game. He chased the balls and especially liked to run through the wickets. Uncannily, he always seemed to block whatever wicket was being played. He definitely added to the game.

    Sad to say, while croquet is still his sport he no longer fits through the wickets. He is now 12 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He always shows up when a game is on, but these days he just chases the balls - or playfully bites the croquet players. A few years ago Jacquespot started a business. It was a rainy day escort service. When not busy escorting, he generally hangs about looking very handsome.
    Hello, beautiful Jacquespot! You look very nice in your tuxedo coat, with your sweet face and l-o-n-g white whiskers! I wonder if there is some Persian or Maine Coon Cat in your lineage, with your full fluffy fur! You came to your forever home as a tiny kitten, and after plenty of petting, everyone adored you!

    I have never met a cat who enjoyed croquet, and I can imagine how much you add to a game! You chase the croquet ball or playfully bite the players! You also have a very special skill of always looking handsome ! What a special gentle-cat you are!

    Happy, happy Cat of the Day to most handsome Jacquespot!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Dearest Jacquespot, what a stunningly gorgeous long-hair Tuxedo guy you are! You are so handsome, with that long, LOOOOOONG fluffy black and white fur that looks so luxurious and soft to the touch. And you have the sweetest face with those long, LOOOOOONG, LOOOOOOOONG white whiskers and eyebrows and the lovely big golden eyes. Thank you for sharing those great photos with us! You are quite distinguished-looking running your rainy-day escort service. And in that one of you on your back, are you looking for a tummy rub? I wish I could reach through the screen and up to Nova Scotia and rub it if so and pet you! I can't, of course, but I know your loving and beloved Purrrsons will rub your tum if you wish and pet you for me .

    And what a story you have to tell! You came to your dear Purrrsons when you were only four weeks old, when your original people had to move away. (We hope your two brothers also got good homes!) You were very tiny and needed a bit of care at first, but with shots and a lot of petting, everyone adored you. You came with extraordinarily enormous whiskers and eyebrows, which you later grew into.

    You immediately displayed your skills as a croquet player, getting into the games by chasing the balls through the wickets. 12 years and 12 pounds later, you still play though you no longer fit through the wickets. You also started your rainy-day escort service a few years ago. Now, when not playing or escorting, you generally hang about looking very handsome. You and your dear Purrrsons love each other very much, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share!

    Congratulations, darling Jacquespot, on being chosen today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and your dear Purrrsons and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite treats and games, perhaps even another round of croquet!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    Most handsome Jacquespot, how perfectly you fit into your fluffy tuxedo. Even though you are a big boy, your whiskers and eyebrows are still very impressive. I would love to hire you as my rainy day escort.
    You deservedly semi-retired from the croquet game, but you are still a vital part.
    In short, you are an accomplished senior kitty, living a great life with your wonderful family.
    I hope you get to celebrate your special day today, doing what you do best: looking incredibly handsome.

You may no longer be able to fit through the wickets, but no doubt you're still loving the game, chasing and chewing on those colorful balls, delighting all players with your presence! You truly are one in a million, Jacquespot, beautiful not only in looks but in heart and personality as well; a never ending source of joy for your family! How lucky your humans are, having a beautiful best furkid in you, sweetheart! You're the best!

    Thanks for ending my day with a BIG smile, Jacquespot! Meeting you, being treated to your fabulous photos (love that roar, hehe), has been a real treat! Hope you're enjoying a very special, fun and love filled Cat of the Day soiree, escorting the ladies (should it be rainy, hehe) being treated to all your heart desires and more!
