Jackie gets love while her family is away

My neighbor kitty, Jackie, has been lonely while her family is away. Jackie spends a lot of her time in our yard and Ken’s, and everyone is always happy to give her some love. She also sits by our door or window meowing for attention and even tries to peek in the house when we open the front door.

Friday evening, Mom sat with Jackie on the front porch and made sure she got plenty of loves. Dad pets her a lot too, but doesn’t hold her due to his cat allergies.

Saturday morning she was across the street on Ken’s porch getting morning sunshine snuggles.  Mom texted these photos to Jackie’s family to let them know Jackie was missing them but was getting lots of love. They said they are at Disneyland, so Mom found our princess hat and sent a photo saying Jackie hoped she was still their favorite princess.  

They replied, of course she was, and they could see Jackie was getting lots of love. Maybe she was even a little spoiled!

Hey – that was my sister Sammi’s princess hat and I’m not sure I like Jackie wearing it. I’m your princess now.

Don’t worry Raven, Jackie didn’t enjoy the hat and you’ll always be our princess, with our without a hat.

  1. Poor Jackie. But how nice of you to share your parents with her so she won’t be so lonely.

    We cannot imagine a family going on vacation and just leaving kitty to wander the neighborhood. So happy you all and neighbor Ken are caring for her. She may not have liked the princess hat, but she looked cute. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

      Wouldn’t be what I’d do either. But Jackie is a very smart outdoor kitty. She can get in their house, but chooses to stay outside. They have two indoor cats also. Another neighbor goes over every day to feed everyone. Jackie often sleeps inside with one of their children, then comes out in the morning.

    That was sweet of you to give Jackie some loving. She makes a beautiful princess.

    My human’s soul cat, Harlot, was actually one that mostly got left outside when she was out of town. She had guest house neighbors who would feed her (inside her house) and look after her. But Harlot really hated being cooped up, and that was another era (the early 1990s). There is no way that would happen now! I’m glad Jackie is being looked after so well.

  5. Poor Jackie ! We’re glad your pawrents and the neighbor take good care of her and snuggle with her. Purrs

    You and your family are such good neighbors, Raven!

  8. That is what a good neighbor does: cares for others around them. You are wonderful. Hugs.

  9. I also couldn’t understand why the kitty was left outside until I read your response and Summer’s comment. I feel better about it and I also think you are an Angel to help care for the kitty and love her, but it is also something I would never do. I am also glad she can get into the house if she wants to.

  10. Jackie is a lucky girl to have such loving neighbors, and it looks like she knows it and shows it!

  11. I think it’s darling that you snapped photos and sent them to your neighbor! Jackie is one independent cutie kitty!

We enjoy getting comments.
