April 16, 1995 ~ June 7, 2015
On Easter Sunday, April 16th, 20 years ago, Jack was discovered by the two youngest Elliott children in a hole, inside a grocery bag along with his sister Sarah, they were only a few days old. We nursed them with a homemade milk/yogurt/egg yolk recipe and our dog Nayna (a lab mix) became their surrogate mother as she nursed them both in their first weeks as kittens. Jack was proceeded in death by his sister in 1999 and his son Jelly (Gray Boy) in 2012
Born with a white tipped tail, and a silky white ascot, Jack was a father cat to the four Elliott children, Tessa, Audrey, Jorden & Justin. Always there to give comfort and kiss you on the nose. A silent kitty who never meowed, except on rare occasions. Gentle natured, even years later in his old age, he withstood two toddler grandchildren with never a scratch or bite as he loved babies.
During his 140 cat years, Jack was a well traveled feline, as he ventured with the Gypsy-like-Elliott family on at least 75 moves all over the United States.This highly intelligent kitty had seen more of the world than most humans. However, he hated to move and would always escape the house and moving truck, just right before the family was ready to leave. It was family tradition to chase him around the neighborhood before hitting the road.
A big hole has been left in our hearts, as our comfort, our gentle King of Kitties, now walks with the angels.
