Jabba the Cat

For all those who have cats: Be advised that I used to be the proud owner of Jabba. He was a great cat! I adopted him from one of my friends who couldn't keep him and my hub fell in love with him. Jabba used to "jab" (box) with hub. He was a big, strong cat and we both loved him.
Unfortunately, Jabba took ill, got diabetes and had congestive heart failure! He was only 7 years old. We missed him a lot. Now Snotdog is here! ;-)

Peace

Aww, Jabba looks like a nice furry friend. That's sad he got ill at such a young age.

I wonder how he and Snotdog would have gotten along?

Have a great Wednesday. And I'm first!!

Pretty cat! Sad when they go young like that... We're on our third Calico (females!) in 35 years...and our third Airedale in 25 years!

Jabba reminds me of a cat we used to have named Foxie she was a good cat to.

Pretty cat is Jabba. Sorry he's no longer with us! Did you have to name the dog Snotdog? LOL!

It's always sad when a much loved pet dies. He was a very handsome cat for sure!

Odat said...

Teach, His name is not really Snot, my friends just call him that because he's always sneezing like a lil canon, right in people's faces...lol. His name is Spud, cause he looked like a little baked potato when I got him at three months of age.

Peace

And a handsome kitty he was! I still miss many of our dogs/cats who are in animal heaven. High paws from Parker and Missy, and hugzzz from me!

What a gorgeous animal. I think ypu mentioned before he was orange. Actually, he is stunning, in what I see as bronze...or copper. I really like the white chest, but that collar added to the white looks almost like he is wearing a tux - fitting for such a cool, classy cat!

Wow, Jabba was gorgeous. Glad he had you for a while.
