One of the four beasts saying, “Come and see.” And I saw. And behold, Jiji.
It was going to happen and lo, it did: Jiji finally gets his edition of “Meet the Cats!” After adopting him in July, we wanted to get to know the little devil before we made an introductory comic about him, and, well… damn. Let’s just say, if we had made a comic back then, it would’ve been all “aww, what a cootie-wootie sweetheart! Oh my gosh, everybody!” and that’s a LIE. We have a bag that is filled with pieces of our most precious, breakable antiques. We plan to make a memorial mosaic. Or something. I don’t know. Jesus christ.
Don’t get me wrong, though: we’re exactly the sort of people who find a creature more endearing the more diabolical it is, so all of these allusions to “demon” and “evil” are from a place of love. And truth. Jiji has seeped his way into being a beloved member of this household and he’ll be around to break our treasures for the whole of his happy days. And without further ado, and why I’m sure many of you have even read this far, I’ll give you what you’re looking for: photos!
