Jumping-Jack-Black-the-Tuxedo-Cat-Sparrow was about 2 mos. old when he was left to die in a hole covered by a board outside a restaurant. It was early December and the temperature was in the teens. He was crying at the top of his lungs! As soon as I lifted the board, he jumped into my arms. I was not sure my 7 yr old "sensitive" cat would accept him, but I could not leave him there to freeze to death. We nursed him back to a healthy, happy & boisterous kitten. As it turns out, my Ginger, his new big sister, loves him dearly. He has helped us both through a very difficult time. He makes us laugh everyday. He is our little hero.
