This is my sweet Jazz Boy
(Ruidoso, NM USA)
I live and work in a Southeastern New Mexico Mountain Resort community. Late last summer while doing my work, I found myself being greeted by a litter of kittens under a wooden deck. Most of the kittens avoided any contact with me, except Jazz. He delighted in playing with my shoe strings, and following me around while I worked. I finished the job and left the area, but I could not get that beautiful kitten out of my mind. I had just lost my beloved dog of 15 years only 3 months before! I certainly was not looking for another pet. My heart was still broken. My whole work day passed, and I found myself at the store purchasing, kitten chow, a litter box, and cat toys, hoping he would still be there when I returned. I knew his mother was a ferral cat, as I had seen her before. When I returned to the deck...there he was, as if he had never left. Waiting for me. My husband have enjoyed him for a full year now, and he has become the love of our lives. Jazz is very loving, energetic, talkative, and demanding. Sweet Music to both of us!!
