A Boy Called Misa

About. No data are available about Jimi. He’s a common domestic cat, also known as the European Shorthair. People say he got a touch of the Russian Blue cat breed. There’s even a distinct possibility Jimi was born in Turkey. The previous owner didn’t take the cat to a veterinarian for a medical check-up or vaccinations. Thank goodness Jimi was in good condition when he was brought to the shelter. The local vet estimated Jimi was born early September 2018 and wrote down ‘2018, September 1’ in the Date of Birth box on the registration papers.

Jimi Day 1

 

So far, the change in Jimi’s life went extremely smooth and did exceed my expectations. He was very cautious on the first day but seemed to trust my experience with cats. The second day he was walking around in every room to check out the interesting spots. On the third day it seemed as he lived here for years. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Okay, there was one minor thing, he got diarrhoea on the first two days. I called the vet and he told me to change his food for a few days and give Jimi a gastrointestinal diet food. The problem was already solved the next day, it’s also possible it was stress related.

Jimi Day 2

 

I had two cat names in mind for a shelter cat before I found Jimi: Kiki for a female cat and Iggy for a male cat. Jimi’s original name was Misa. Someone told me the name Misa (a baby name for girls) means ‘Beautiful Bloom’ and is of Japanese origin. In the beginning it sounded good to me. But the first day I met Misa in the shelter I was wearing my Jimi Hendrix t-shirt. Driving back home I suddenly decided to call him Jimi if I could adopt him. So now we share the same family name. You know, it was probably the result of a coincidence, in the mood of the moment.

Jimi Day 3

 

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Newsflash #28

There must be some kind of way outta here. Said the cat to the Vet. Just wanted to let everyone know that Mr. Bowie is 99% healed from his ear infection. To be sure we’re killing all the stubborn bacteria, Mr. Bowie needs ear drops for another week. His eye was in perfect condition!

Once again, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
