Not long ago, I introduced you to the newest member of the household, Jack. The first few weeks with Jack were a little crazy thanks to upper respiratory infections for both him and Charlie and multiple vet visits over a two week period. I am happy to report though, we seem to be past all that and it looks like Charlie and Jack have become pretty fast friends. (can you tell from the photo above?)
Now, Jack does still annoy Charlie plenty. Picture a 19 pound cat (who, by the way is not an overweight 19 pound cat but rather large, muscular one) being chased by a three pound, pint sized runt, all the while squealing like a small child at the prospect of being caught. Having my camera phone at the ready has been a must because, while it’s not going capture pictures as well as good old Bessie (yes, that would be my SLR) I would never be able to capture moments like this without it.
I also admit that I have become quite obsessed with downloading camera apps on my iPhone. If you have one, check them out. Apps like Instamatic and Hipstamatic, among others are a lot of creative fun!
Having Jack in the house, while initially rather stressful has been such a tremendous joy. And as much as Charlie might want to whine and cry when Jack chases him (which I don’t blame him, his nickname has become “Vampiro” for all the biting) I truly think Jack has been just what Charlie needed since Oliver passed away. What do you think?
