Jimmy, the Human Cat, loves to lounge around. In fact, I think Jimmy loves to lounge around more than anything else, unless he’s hungry or bored. If he’s either of those, he’s the most vocal creature alive and will drive you mad until you do whatever it is he wants – even if it takes less than 30 seconds.

Here, he’s rolling over on the place where I sleep nights before or after a photographic shoot. As usual, he’s dropping loose fur everywhere, looking at you with “What’s up?” eyes, and generally being the best friend on four legs (except all of MINE in Weedy Field. Hehehe!)

We recently learned he knows what he looks like in pictures so I wonder what he’ll think of his lazy rear here!

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    Aw, he’s just gorgeous, fluffy and cuddly, I’d probably cuddle this cat to bits if I was allowed near him! Great picture of him..just lovely…

    Thanks! Jimmy is always afraid of people for about the first 10 minutes – me included. For some reason, he freaks out easily. But hang around more than 10 minutes and you’d better have clothing you don’t mind cat hair clinging to. LOL! I fact, his fur is so clingy, it will stay on your face as well. :-D But this is one of the most lovable cats imaginable: he’s climb right up in your lap, wiggle up your stomach and chest, and lick your chin or nose if he can reach them. If he can’t, he’ll ‘give you paw’ – and outstretched leg towards your closest part and a cute look like he’s just longing for you! Just remember, Jimmy has no boundaries and he goes wherever he wants, whenever he wants. He wants to check out what you’re looking at on the computer, he’s up there meowing in your face. He wants to know what you’re doing outside, he will follow you like a dog and meowing as if he’s carrying on a conversation with you. He wants to play fetch, he’ll cry until you pick something up to throw, then run madly after it, pounce on it, and back away for you to fetch it and do it again. The brat! Loudest purr in a feline, most annoying morning behaviour in a pet, and weirdest habits (like running into the bathroom when I’m using it and meowing like crazy as if he’s telling on me or reminding me to close the seat! I’ve offered to toss him in a few times but that doesn’t seem to be a lesson he remembers…)

    Anyway, one cool cat. :-D

    great shot of Jimmy ~ lovely pink nose and eyes ~ he looks like he knows how to relax ~ :)

    Thanks again! Jimmy knows how to relax, all right. He’s also a master of not letting YOU relax when he wants attention. Think 2 year old baby (human) and you’ll get the picture except with the claws, the sandpaper tongue, and (THANKFULLY) no diapers!!!!!

    HAHAHA! i think? u’r Jimmy and my Sir Flash A Lot are related! and do u have to curl up on u’r side so he can have a spot in front of u to sleep at night? (mine is sleeping with his paws over his nose while i type..) did i mention? i have a ‘special spot’ for him in my bathroom…so when i’m taking a shower MY spoiled brat has a place to wait for me to finish so he can snoop around in the drained tub? oh…and don’t EVEN think of having a closed door in HIS house! cats!

  • LMFAO!!!!! I think Jimmy’s a bit uncomfortable with doing the flashing personally so he flashes ME while in the midst of the most embarrassing bathroom times. A really crowd pleaser. NOT. I’d forgotten about the curl up thing! Yes, Jimmy is just like that and he will actually stand on my feet and cry if he wants me to lay down – right there on the floor – to do some CatCuddles. (sigh) The problem is that I’m OLD and if I fall asleep, he’ll leave my happy butt right there, probably giggling. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that was a sure sign of his intelligence (or bratty nature!!!)

    L, I think Jimmy is part if not all Main Coon. He’s got that long hair like Jake, my cat in his ears. Does he have feather like hair coming from his paws? If so then he is and MC’s are highly intelligent and love water. Tell me more about this guy, I love him!

    Yes, Jimmy as serious issues with his ‘fur paw’ stuff! LOL! He steps in something and it’s EVERYWHERE – all over him, me, his owner, the house – every single where possible. And he loathes getting his foot hair trimmed. (sigh) He’s not exactly a water lover but he’s not afraid of it and will go where it is as long as he knows he’s not going to be in it unplanned.

    I’m going to opt out of the obvious reply but I can’t resist saying, “I am” so he’ll have to settle for whatever’s left. LMFAO!!!

    If it wasn’t for the fact that he’s a biggest woosie on four paws, I’d say he’s smarter than most cats I’ve known and will almost always respond to verbal suggestions. (Forget about ‘commands’. He’s still a cat…!) I’ve never once hear him growl; I’m not sure he remembers how to do it, if he ever did. He’s not afraid of the deer or wild turkeys but he’ll run from almost any other cat or human until he gets to know it/him/her. He’s very active any time of the day or night but usually sleeps late mornings and early afternoons. If he’s on the prowl nites, he doesn’t seem to sleep tho he can curl up on some porch furniture if he wants to. But the smartest thing this guy does is climb on the roof if it’s cold and either sit on or close to the chimney – close enough so that he smells strongly of smoke. LOL!

    i’ll go with the ‘bratty nature’ myself? mine likes to curl up with me…ON DEMAND…….once HE’S comfortable and i’m almost asleep? he’ll proceed to clean his toe nails (crunch crunch CLICK)..yummmmmmy! and oh? if i’m not giving the attention i’m supppppposed to be at this point? he nips my arm! buggar!

  • LOLOLOL! There just has to be a school somewhere for cats to learn this common behaviour, some sort of psychic cat school. They seem to have mastered BratCat 101 with honours!
