|This is an early picture of Jack.|
|Jack does NOT like her sweater!|
(But she's soooo cute in it!)
Jack got her name because for some reason she always had gunk stuck in her eye when she was a kitten and my boyfriend starting calling her one eyed jack. By the time we realized she was a girl the name had already stuck.
We found homes for all the kittens, and even Patches, however none for Jack so she ended up becoming my daughter's cat. And boy is she ever my daughters cat! She follows her around, sleeps with her, greets her when she comes in the door. When she was smaller she used to run up and climb up her pant legs into her arms. Now she's a little too big for that, at her last check up she weighed 12 1/2 lbs.! (the weight gain didn't happen til after she got fixed though)
Jack has tons of crazy quirks. Lets see, just to name a few, she refuses to eat wet cat food or tuna. However she LOVES fish food. No interest in the fish, only their food. When I go to feed the fish she will come up and meow until I give her a bit. She will sniff the fish, and has even gone so far as to try to drink the water from the fish tank, but otherwise she doesn't care about them. If I try to ignore her she stretches up on her hind legs and pats her paws against the tank. As if to say, "Hey, why are you giving them my food?"
This little quirk of hers came in handy about a month ago. She had to take medicine and none of us felt like getting bit. So we put the meds on her treats and sprinkled fish food over it and she licked the plate clean. Literally. Also she has an obsession with tape. Still not sure why, but if tape is left out she will start licking it. She has even gone into the trash to pull out pieces of tape.

|Jack the baking kitty!|
Jack is like any cat, she can be very finicky about who she likes. She will even run across the room to bat at someone or something if she doesn't like it. But in general she is a very sweet kitty, who my kids are convince is plotting to take over the world one household at a time. What do you think?
Her evil look. (like I purposely put sugar on her!)
