Update: Jerry Coyne the Cat

From Christchurch, New Zealand we get a report on Jerry Coyne the Cat from his adoptive staff, forwarded by his original foster mom Gayle Ferguson. And the news is heartening:

Well Jerry continues to rule. His coat is very thick and his tail gets fluffier every day. Growing so fast and will be a big cat I think. A very loud purr box and sleeps under the covers on the cold nights. Chases all the neighbourhood cats away and regularly hangs out with the chickens. One day lying with them in the sunshine but moved before I got the camera ready. He still doesn’t quite get the cat door which is a pain but when he wants to come in he flies in so you have to stand back!

An absolute sweetie who is much more of a lap cat than he was initially. Gives Loki [the other cat in the house] hell still but it is mutual. Never a dull moment. He still sucks on your bootie and throws it around a lot.

Before you get any ideas, the “bootie” was a knitted baby’s bootie that Jerry used to toss about when he was just a kitten. As you can see below, he’s no longer a kitten!

From his youth Jerry has always had hairy ears and long whiskers:

Look at that tail! It’s nearly as big as a raccoon’s!

And lest we forget, here’s Jerry from only a few short months ago:

    He looks just like my dear Morgan, the ~week old abandoned kitten I raised for 2 years. He/she was given to my brother while I was in the hospital (doctor’s orders.) After 9 years, I still miss him so much.

    Thanks for the update. He’s a very handsome cat, and what a thick and bushy tail he has.

    It’s great to hear Jerry is doing so well. I bet that tail is really impressive when he gets riled up.

    Your namesake has grown into quite the handsome feline.
