A New Family Member: Jess

23 Feb 2015




I had been lonely since Miss Molly passed away. There were moments when I randomly burst to tears and cried for half an hour. After several weeks considering, we finally decided to adopt a new cat. We rescued this stray tabby female cat from my mum's neighbourhood on Wednesday. We named her Jess, but we call her GoJess (like cheering her up: Go, Jess! Go, Jess!) The inspiration behind the name was, of course, Jess of New Girl. Why? Because she has quite long hair for a local cat and it reminds me of Zooey Deschanel's hair (LOL. Can you believe it?)

She's a little bit naughty and very active. At night, she likes to run around the house as if she's chasing something that can't be seen by us. (Yes, the thought of ghost has occured several times on our heads, but we've decided to ignore that thought.) At day, however, she likes to take a long, long nap. Like, all day.

If you think that we've forgotten about Molly since it took us less than a month to get another cat... No, we have not forgotten about her. I still love her very much. But, I think perhaps it would be better to channel all the love to another cat in need rather than crying myself to sleep every night. I buried Miss Molly under a window at my house and it has become my habit to look at it everytime I open/close the window. I still love Miss Molly very much, but I'd like to focus on moving on with Jess. Molly will always have a part in my heart.

  1. No no, you never forget old pets. You're right - moving on is essential. Just because one chapter ended does not mean you shouldn't start another... Please feel well soon and good luck with Miss Jess.

    1. Thank you. She has different traits from Miss Molly, but we get along just fine :)

  2. Jess is gorgeous! reminds me a lot of my own kitten Tinie :) - I don't think you should worry about feeling rushed to get a new cat, I'd be devastated if any of my pets passed away and I'd definitely adopt another x

    1. She's 100% soft and a cuddlebug. She knows how to fish for a belly rub so we often get distracted of what we're doing just to give her a belly rub. Haha

  4. Thanks, Naomi! She's very active so it's very hard to take a good picture of her when she's not sleeping. Glad you can see her cuteness only by seeing those pictures of her sleeping ;)

  5. I'm so sorry about the loss of your cat. Growing up, my family had a cat that they rescued when my mom was pregnant with me. Her name was Stormy and she was the best- she slept with me in my crib, always knew when I needed a friend, and was the sweetest cat ever. She lived a long 20 years and I was so sad when she passed. I completely understand you when you say you want to channel your love into another cat! A year after Stormy passed, my family got 2 new kittens to love. It seems like Jess will be a wonderful addition to your family :)
