Cat Adoption (Part 3)

Making our way through the crew. You’ve met: Casey, Spike, Cookie, Oreo, Bones, and Jack. Now to meet Jill, Dora, Onyx, and Minnie.

Jill (aka Baby Jill)

Jill was the second cat that came to us from the vet. I remember walking into the vet and seeing her in the cage. I went right home and told Kevin we are adopting another cat, no questions asked. LOL She was so so tiny. I love the picture that we took of her sitting on top of the cat carrier.

Something else cute she started when she was little was “squeaking” when you would touch her butt. She still does it to this day.

I also love this picture of Jack and Jill. Jack is actually the taller one. Jill now towers over him.

When we go to the vet they will ask (before they see the name) if Jill is a male because I guess for a female she is a large cat. She’s not fat, but just big-boned (honestly…..) When she was tiny we would call her Baby Jill, just like we called Jack, Baby Jack. Then she grew…..

Meet Minnie

Minnie and Houdini look very similar, but Minnie (ironically) is smaller than Houdini. More on that in her bio below.

There is one thing that makes me sad about her, she’s more of a loner and doesn’t really like human attention. She likes to hang out with us, but doesn’t want to be held. It makes me sad because she is so darn cute. 🙁

Here’s more on her story. (You can always access this by going to the “Meet The Kids” drop down menu at the top of the website.)


Funny story behind Minnie. We originally named her after Minnie Mouse because we loved Disney at the time. The ironic thing was she stayed tiny so everyone thought that her name was Mini. Little did we know how accurate her name would be.

She was a package deal. I met Onyx first (you’ll meet him tomorrow) and was going to take him home for sure. Then the vet techs told me that I needed to look at another kitty they had. They brought Minnie out and she was the cutest thing. Everyone thought that I wasn’t going to take Onyx and was going to adopt Minnie instead.  How could I refuse when they bring this peanut out? (She hasn’t gotten any bigger from that time.)

I surprised them and adopted both of them!

The only downside with Minnie is that she does not like to interact with us and is somewhat scared of us. I’m going to write an article about how to deal with that situation. We are still working with her to get her to open up to us. She’s not nasty, she just likes to “exist”.

Slowly, her nose is turning black. She had a total pink nose and developed a black spot (we’ve had it checked out and it’s nothing but a pigment change). This was one of the times that we could get close to her.
