Another Contest and Jinx’s Story

Happy Sunday everyone! I am actually looking forward to Monday as I have been cat sitting for 4 days and I am a little tired. I love cats, but dealing with my own 15 is a full time job. Plus my niece lives on the 3rd floor and I am quite lazy. Today is every cat has a story day, but first-a contest: Lucy wants to remind everyone to wear a helmet when they bicycle.lucyhelmetThe first person to comment with the correct answer as to what store the helmet is from will win an ice cream cone ( catnip flavored). This is Snowball with hers, my mom is making some new ones :001

Today I will tell you Jinx’s story, he was still young when I got him so I think he was born in early 2002. I used to be a home tutor for the public school and he was hanging around at a student’s home. The parents had no plans to keep him so I took him in. Jinx is very sweet to us and other people, but he hates cats. He goes right for the neck every time. We have tried over the years to reintroduce him to some of the other cats, but he always ends up attacking. When we had a dog and rabbits, he was fine with them, but for some reason he really hates all cats. It is a challenge to keep him segregated, but I would never part with him- Once I accept a cat ( or any living creature) into our home, it is forever- my niece is lucky she was able to move when she grew up and even luckier she got her cat out with her 🙂  By the way, I named him after Jinxy cat in Meet the Parents ( I love that movie). Halloween 2013 047This is Jinx last year when I was experimenting to see if black cats are bad luck by having him wear a Red Sox cap ( they are not bad luck 🙂 ).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please check for another contest this week. Thanks for reading.


  1. Our humans are just like you. Once a kitty joins our household, they are here for the remainder of their life, no matter how misbehaved they might be. Every anipal deserves a loving home. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Well I do think that bicycle helmet is really cute but I have NO IDEA where it might have been purchased!!! I don’t think there’s a kitty cat bicycle store anywhere around me anyway…………

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. So far no one has even tried to guess so I will give you a sort of hint to lead you in the right direction-Lucy gets a lot of stuff from Build-A-Bear, but that is not where this came from, but if you think along those lines you may guess.

  3. Ummm… I don’t know. Hmmm… Maybe Nip & Bones? I’m just guessin’ though. I really don’t know from where the helmet came but it sure is cute!

    Nissy #Niss4Senate – tell the PM, today

    1. I have never heard of Nipp and Bones-good guess though. I will put another hint on tomorrow’s blog.

  4. Hmmmm…we’re stumped as to what store that helmet came from. We’re sure you could probably buy one on Amazon…you can get anything there!

    Thanks for sharing Jinx’s story with us. It’s too bad he doesn’t like the other cats, but at least he has a happy home.

    1. You can buy anything on Amazon, we love that site. But that is not where the helmet came from.

    1. Yes!!!! Yay! We have a winner-Lucy borrowed it from my niece who has lots os American Doll stuff she is saving for when she has kids. Congratulations, you win an ice cream cone- don’t worry it won’t melt.

  5. I love the bicycle helmet on Lucy, she looks great and is very responsible to remind everyone safety is key. She must look pawesome riding her bike and wearing her stylin’ helmet.
    I bet Katnip Lounge is close or correct- that’s a great response!

    1. Thank you and yes, Katnip Lounge got it right 🙂 I have a cat named Phoebe too!

  6. I think I need to put my cap on now, after reading all the things you guys can do, from the power of your caps. BOL!
