Reader's (Biker) Cat Of The Month: Jazz


Name?
Jazz

Nicknames?
Jazz A-ma-razz. Jazzman. Monster. The Terror..

Theme tune?
The Stray Cats - Cool for Cats.

Age?
4

Owners?
There is Doug who is covered in a lot of fur. It's on top of his head and a lot hanging from his face. He is a very nice Human. Doug likes to take his Harley Davidson out for long relaxing rides. I tend to not like the loud noise of the Harley so I always stay home and wait for him to return. Then there is Shari. She adores me and plays games with me. I like to jump on the bed and get pettings. I also like when she spreads out the blankets so I can knead for a long time. They allow me to do much as I please. Of course there are rules to follow. They are the most purrfect Humans I could ever own.

Brief biography?
I was born outside in the springtime. As a kitten I enjoyed roaming around the mountainside. When I was about 3 months old I decided to find a furrever home. I was walking one sunny day in May when I saw a Harley rider with a long beard and a lot of hair. He was with a beautiful female human. Since I love motorcycles I felt these Humans would be mine. I walked out in front of them and they fell in love with me. They took me to their home near the woods. Now I get to enjoy my life with my Humans and another cat named Cool.

Catchphrase?
"I love it when a plan comes together"

Favourite habits?
Eating. Sleeping. Playing outside. Eating. Sleeping. Watching squirrels and birds.  Eating. Sleeping. Bring bugs and mice into the house. Eating. Sleeping. Watch a little TV. Eating. Sleeping. (Repeat)

Perfect evening?
A good ghost show. Ghost Adventures is my favorite. Followed by a wonderful dinner and a warm bath. To finish the evening I'd have my Mom sing "Soft Kitty" to me..  

Favourite food?
Fancy Feast, even though it's not always "Fancy". I like to sample eggs from my Dad's plate every morning. Also an occasional turkey sandwich hits the spot..

Defining moment?
Recently my Humans brought home a book called "The Good, The Bad & The Furry". It has created a lot of fun in my house. I like to watch the computer a lot, so it's so much fun to see my photo on the internet. I have almost as many likes as my friend Cool got. My Humans like to tell me that I've "gone viral".

Enemies?
My best friend is called "CooI". She and I go on adventures together but we disagree on whose catnip toys belong to each other. When we get into wrestling matches our fur stands up and we yell a lot. There is also a neighbor cat who comes around - we don't like her at all and chase her away as fast as we can.

If you could do one thing to make the world a better place for felines, what would it be?
home for every cat and a free supply of catnip. 

Which celebrity would you most like to meet?
Ozzy Osbourne. He has a lot of dogs and it's time he gets some cats. Black ones.
My Dad met and hung out with Ozzy in 1986. That would be fun for me to see.
.

Which of the cats in Under The PawTalk To The Tail and The Good, The Bad And The Furry would you most like to be stuck in a lift with?
I have the most in common with The Bear. We seem to get into a lot of situations where our Humans can take photos and put in funny captions. We both use small meows when we talk. We could just sit in the lift and stare at each other and we would still have a great time.

When former stray cats begin to "change"

It's nice to see George settled here but I'm also worried he might be getting a bit too self-important. Back in May, he lived in a bush behind my garden. Now he's going around the place, putting up his own signs, as if he owns it.

Email from my dad

I was away last week. My dad stayed here, did some walking and looked after the cats. He sent me this email afterwards.
