Jacoby hid in the litter box for a while, enjoying the peace and quiet. He didn’t understand those two…those three, actually; even though Kylie had been born in similar circumstances as his friends outside, and she never said anything against them, she never said anything FOR them, either. Jacoby knew she was just remaining neutral so as not to get on Tessie’s bad side (which could be considerable, as Angel could confirm), but still…he just didn’t see what was so inherently bad about his friends. They lived outside. So what? It just didn’t seem like that much of an issue to him.
I was looking through my photos of Jake and the Welders’ Cats…these are a couple of favourites:
(I think this was the first time Jake met them)
(That’s Minnie with Jake)
Jacoby’s great accomplishment of ascending to the top of our wardrobe, the highest possible point in our apartment, isn’t quite as marvelous as he thinks it is…
…Mainly because he wasn’t the first to get up there.
Angel climbed up there before the entire wardrobe was even built! The doors weren’t even attached yet.
And she was fully prepared to go even higher.
She shows no interest in going up there now, but maybe that’s just because she’s already done it, and she just doesn’t see the point in going up there any more.
However, I will say that Angel’s getting up on the top of the wardrobe is a little more impressive than Jake doing it. Jake uses the dresser as a stepping-stone to get to the top, but as you can see, Angel didn’t use the dresser at all. She couldn’t! Without the rest of the wardrobe built, there was too much of a gap between the dresser and the wardrobe top. To this day, I’m not really sure how she managed it.
