The first couple Jewel lived with (yes, she had two homes before she came to live here) saw a movie with a character named Jules in it. I can't remember which movie it was, though. So they named her Jules.
When Jewel went to live with her former owner, he dropped the "s" and made her name Jewel instead of Jules. I'm glad he did that because I like Jewel better, and it definitely fit her.
How did you choose your cat's name?
