Today, Let’s Talk About Your Cat features a 3 year old Bengal Cat formerly named Milow that had been surrendered by his owners to a veterinary clinic after being found injured. After receiving lots of love and care from the clinic he got a new name and found his forever home with my friend Angela.

Q How did Jenko come into your life?

A Jenko came into the clinic where I work as an emergency case when he had been shot with an air rifle. The owners surrendered him to our clinic when they were unable to raise the necessary funds to pay for his care. While he was in the clinic, I would visit with him daily and give him hugs and scratches under his chin. Once he was fully recovered, I was fortunate enough to adopt him. His story was one of the inspirations of our Vets Animal Charity which was set up to assist owners with financial constraints in an emergency situation.

Q How did you come up with the name Jenko

A Jenko was named after Channing Tatums character, who also got shot, from the movie 21 Jump street.

Q Describe Jenko’s personality

A Jenko is a very sweet boy, and is usually found right next to me.  He follows me into the kitchen where I think he would eat all day if I let him, and he loves water! He jumps up on the counter when I turn the tap on in the kitchen or when I am brushing my teeth in the bathroom. Sometimes I will fill the kitchen sink up a bit and put something in the water and he’ll play for ages, even standing with one foot in the water. He is very interested in the shower as well, and I think he may eventually go right in it. He also loves heat and sits directly on or in front of the heating vents in the house.

Q What is your first memory or experience with cats?

A When I was in high school we moved and I was very sad to leave my friends and the school that I attended. My parents bought me a cat to keep me company and to help with the loneliness. She was a long-haired tabby and absolutely adorable. That was the first cat that owned me and I have had cats in my life ever since.

Q Anything else people should know?

A We also have a dog named Gertie that came to us from a rescue in California. We originally took Jenko home on a trial basis only to see if they would get along, and he never left. Within the first 24 hours, they were lying next to each other on the couch and Jenko was licking Gertie’s head. Now it’s almost like having two dogs, they run around the house like maniacs and greet us together when we come home. I can’t imagine life without them now!

    • They are beautiful but maybe more common in Canada & the US. The cats must be purchased from a breeder although some rescue groups also have them. I do believe they have breeders in South Africa a quick google search reveals a few 🙂
