“I am gonna getchya!” said Captain Jack the kitty as he stands up on his two hind feet with his paws in the air, trying to catch the grass.

This exquisit little furball was born to a semi-feral cat named Switz on August 17, 2011 before Sheryl, an animal rescuer, could finally catch her for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release). The cat mama outsmarted the trap multiple times and this adorable kitty is Switz’s 2nd litter. They named him Captain Jack.

Sheryl went from gaining trust from the mama cat to taking the kittens in when they were old enough. It started looking hopeful when they were able to bring in the kittens, treat their kitty flue and socialize them to other furry friends and humans in the house.

Intially the family planned on putting all the kitties up for adoption at the Goathouse Refuge, but Jack crept deep into their hearts. “We just couldn’t stand to see Jack go. We decided to keep him as part of our family. Jack stole our hearts and he just seemed to fit right in with us,” said Sheryl.
