Captain Jack Feral Born Kitty Has a Happy

“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.

Captain Jack, 7 days old

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.

    Why would a siamese point kitten be feral? Will people ever learn to spay and neuter their pets? He is adorable and very lucky to have found a home!

    The question is, why should ANY cat be feral? I’m with Michaelangelo, who (apparently) said that every cat is a work of art!

        :-) I had never heard about Michalangelo saying that, but it works for me…I believe it, too. Captain Jack looks like a Lilac Point Siamese with an Angora-like tail. Gorgeous, any way you look at him. So glad the whole feral situation was satisfactorily resolved. >’o’<

  15. Rene S says:

    Oh what a beauty he turned out to be.

  16. Kate says:

    What a face — he looks like a worried old guy.

    In the first photo, there’s a scuff mark on the wall behind him that looks like a “swoosh” of shading done with charcoal … and the grass looks like bamboo. Beautiful!

    Captain Jack looks like he’s turning out to be a Ragdoll cat. My little Tuffy looked very much like Capt’ Jack when he was a kitten.
    His seal point coloring darkened on his face, ears, back and tail as he matured. His blue eyes intensified like crazy. And his tail become so full and bushy. My lil’ Tuffy pretty much started out like like Capt’ Jack,
    born to a feral siamese cat, that kept hanging around a friends house.
    My friend became so fond of Tuffy (she named him) she wanted to find him a forever home. I had Tuffy for 18 wonderful, loving years. He was quite a little rascal! Never a dull moment. Hope you have many, many wonderful years with Captain Jack!
