Mancat Monday—Jamal

Meet Jamal! He's a member of my posse. He lives on the wrong side of the parking lot from me. His human calls him his "Buddy," but back on the 'Paw, he was known as Jamal Jonez. He's the type of cat, your parents warned you about: sneaking down the alleyway, looking for a fight. Howling at the moon on a hot summer's night. You get the picture. A lot of ladycats swooned over Jamal. Seems that TW swoons over him too.

TW has never had a thing for orange/ginger/cinnamon kitties until now. She LOVES Jamal and P-Kitty, who you'll meet as soon as TW can stop scritching him long enough to take his picture. Jamal is usually smart enough to keep his distance.

I'll bet this is the first time—outside of police blotter shots—that Jamal has ever had his picture taken. He looked kind of in awe for his first photo session, but relaxed for the 2nd one. Apparently, his Daddy isn't big on taking pictures of the cat. As long as he feeds him, Jamal is OK with that.

Jamal is an Alley through and through. You can see some of his battle scars from his skirmishes with the Toms. He's tough, that's for sure. Check that ear out! I bet the Tom who took him on looks a lot worse. Jamal takes a licking and keeps on ticking.


Although their house is in total disrepair—TW says it looks like a shack in the "sticks" whatever that means—Jamal has his own kitty door, so he can go in and out whenever he wants to. Trust me, with all the warm sun puddles, he's wanted to go out a lot lately.

  1. He is tough but handsome and I am sure glad someone has a place he can call home.

  4. We think Jamal is so handsome. We love the orange tabbies. We do think that you are very funny CK and TW too. So Jamal has a police record?? We do like Jamal a lot. We have some ears around here that have been beaten up. Have a super day.

  7. We love your line about how the other cat must look! haha! Jamal is a handsome dude alright. I'd be a little worried about TW though. You need to keep that wandering eye of hers in check. ...lest you want a visitor, or worse yet a brother.

  8. We've got a kitty who's a little like this Jamel except he's smokey grey. But he lives on the other side of the street from me and he's always coming over looking for a fight. Oh, so very annoying. I'm not a fighter, you see. So I'm always having to try to avoid him. And to make matters worse... my peeps like him! Peep #1 has even gone over to look after him a few times when his peeps were away. What a traitor. Know just how you must feel.

  9. I just realized I wasn't an official "follower" of your blog, CK! What am I going to DO with that Glogirly??? Can't take her anywhere. Oh wait, she can't take ME anywhere.

  10. Even girl kitties love bad boys, what can I say? I just hope Jamal is neutered and not making little Jamals!

  12. Now see, that's the kitty I wanted to be! Alas, I was kidnapped before I could make my escape. Sigh.

    Now I'd just be useless. I'd be wanderin' those allies lookin' for my special noms and my comfy beds.

    Sad, isn't it??

  14. Hi CK, Austin just wanted me to pop over and introduce him!!! He's a bit shy of the ladies, but as you and he are Real housecat inmates at the moment, he feels he must scrub up and shake down, whatever that means?

    Jamal looks a bit like Austin's nemesis, Big Ginge, but cuter :) Have a nice day x

  16. Jamal looks like a pretty tough and handsome mancat. We're glad he has a home of his own.
