Gayle Ferguson, Rescuer of Jerry the Cat, has forwarded a report from Jerry’s new owners in Christchurch, New Zealand, complete with two pictures of the boy. Here’s the email that came from his forever home (I’ve omitted the names of Jerry’s staff lest someone be tempted to kidnap the cat):
Was just thinking I should send you an update. Took Jerry to the Vet a week or so ago for his booster. Healthy wee boy. Weighed 1.6kg then but I think he is a lot heavier now as he is eating Loki’s food as well as his own! [JAC: Loki is the other cat who lives there.]
Loki seems to be getting used to the idea of Jerry and they play together with the ball in a track- if the ball gets some speed up it lights up and then Jerry really gets excited. [Name of Jerry's male staff redacted] can’t resist buying cat toys.
Such a smoocher. Loves the lap but also getting right up close on your chest. We now have both cats sleeping on the bed at night which can be pretty interesting as they work out the territory. Never a dull moment.
He had his first time outside last night. We sat out on the patio and he jumped up and down on all fours in the long grass- very funny. Was keen to head inside at the slightest loud noise which is probably good at this stage.
How will you ever be able to be parted with the other two? [JAC: Gayle still hasn't found homes for the last two kittens of the batch, Isis and Hoover.]
(Note: These new pictures are smaller than the ones that used to come from Gayle).
