The cats love spending time beneath the Christmas Tree.

And destroying the presents!

Cloud was not interested in posing in front of the tree, but can’t resist something to sit on, so I tricked her into posing by placing a book in front of the tree.

Jeeves’ special talent is ripping off his sweater with one kick of his back foot. It happens in such a blur that I’m still not really sure how he does it.

Cat Photos Friday #123 Chester Jeeves day!

These guys are are four!!


Four years ago we took a trip to Petsmart because we were thinking of getting a cat. ONE cat. We met a lady who had just rescued a bunch of kittens and she talked us into getting two, although we didn’t really need much convincing! We set up a time to visit her house and pick out cats, but we already had our eyes set on the orange one. I’d always wanted an orange cat named Chester, and when I saw him in his Petsmart cage I said “Look it’s Chester!”

Then we just had to decide on a friend for Chester, and there were so many cute guys to choose from!


We thought about getting this little grey guy, but he was so shy and hid from us the whole time. Chester was an outgoing cat so we wanted someone with a similar personality. That’s when we decided on Jeeves. He was a little shy but very lovey and very active.

Jeeves and the grey cat really liked each other though, I think maybe they were actual brothers because they looked similar!  But we didn’t get the grey guy because three cats seemed like too much. ..

Which is funny because the very next day after we chose Chester and Jeeves, Cloud decided to move into our house and we ended up with three cats anyway. 

I still think about that grey cat, and wish we had gotten him too!

Fun fact: We originally thought about naming Jeeves Bertie, and then Jasper, but since he’s wearing a tuxedo, Jeeves seemed to fit best. He’s our butler cat.

Another fun fact:  Cloud’s original name was Ghost. But then I started calling her Cloud and it just fit better.


Chester and Jeeves were in pretty rough shape when they first got rescued from a feral cat colony.. But now they are happy and healthy! 






I can’t believe it’s already been four years!
