Jewel's Journeys

Yesterday, I went shopping for Christmas presents for a few friends.  I detoured into the Barnes & Noble to see if they had any Grumpy Cat themed items, and of course they did!  Like this Grumpy Cat coloring book.  I would love to have one. :)


Did you know that coloring is a good way to relieve stress?

While looking at all the Grumpy Cat merchandise and giggling at how funny she is, it reminded me of Jewel.

Before Jewel came to live with us, she was quite a grumpy kitty herself.  She really did not like affection, and if you tried to give her a kiss on the head, she'd give you a whap with her claws!


Jewel was also very vocal at the vet.  So much so, that one of the vet techs nicknamed her "Miss Crankypants."

Once, when she was getting her blood pressure checked, she was talking so much that she riled up all the little kittens who had just been spayed or neutered.

Jewel sure had a lot of personality and made her feelings and demands known!  I loved that about her very much.

  8. That is so funny that she riled up the little kittens. Angel Tara was the same way at the vet whenever she had to be taken to another room or left there. As long as I was with her she was a perfect angel. I love reading your memories of your special angel {{{hugs}}}

  10. Miss Crankypants! That's funny. Thanks for sharing more about Jewel.

    And we didn't know that about coloring. The mom may go buy a coloring book or two. :)

  12. Our mom doesn't get to do it too often, but she loves to color. She has a Kliban Cat coloring book that her aunt gave her. It is her favorite. We have read in a later post that you got your coloring book from a kind reader. Enjoy and think of Jewel as you color.
