This coming Saturday marks two years since the passing of the most famous GMG cat and internet phenom (besides lolcat), JJ Jinglenuts. Joey on 6/9/2010.
So this week we can post our favorite Jinglenuts story. One that I have is that Joey posted several times how JJ liked to clean his junk. Several times.
And then just a few minutes later JJ is wishing everyone a Happy Easter by licking Easter cookies.
My dog Stella is scratching her head on this one.
Just got a call from the Mrs.
Our neighbor just popped by to let her know that there’s a tore up cat in his yard and it looks like JJ. I guess all the killing of the mice and the chipmunks finally caught up to the poor fella and an animal a little higher on the food chain got him last night.
JJ I hope you’re having fun up in heaven and there is plenty of fine pussy up there for you to play with. We’ll miss you buddy.
We got JJ as a kitten at the animal shelter in Salem. It was after a long period of trying to conceive our first child without success and many medical procedures. Within a month of JJ’s arrival into our home The Mrs became pregnant with The Bean.
There have been many funny stories revolving around JJ but my favorite was the one in particular I’ll never forget.
JJ never liked closed doors. If there was a room he wanted to get into he would scratch and scratch and scratch at the door until you would get up and open it to let him get to the other side of that damn door. To say that his scratching wasn’t a total PITA to have to manage would be a lie.
The Mrs would often yell at him when he scratched at the doors or a piece of furniture. So one day when the Bean was 2 years old I get home from work and we are all sitting around the island in the kitchen and JJ starts scratching at the door that leads out to our screened in porch. Without hesitation and with the perfect inflection in her voice The Bean at all of 2 years old says out loud “FUCKIN JJ”! Obviously she picked up that little oratory gem from hearing The Mrs lash out in an irritated state when JJ had scratched at the door one too many times in the course of a day.. But the way she said it was just perfect with the inflection and attitude- “Fuckin JJ”!
I looked at my wife and she looked at me and that’s when we learned that we ought to watch our mouths around the little ones because they really do pick up everything you say whether you think they are listening or not.
Well anyway buddy it’s been a good run. Thanks for keeping my feet warm at the foot of the bed and being the Angel Cat that brought little Eloise into our lives.

JJ with The Bean –
JJ With Madeline
The Bean Insisted To be In This Shot-
Some people get very upset when I post pictures of our attack kitty JJ Jinglenut’s fresh kills so I offer fair warning. Do not click on the Alvin and The Chipmunks pic If you don’t want to see the slide show of JJ’s latest victim up close and personal.
Also DO NOT CLICK HERE if you do not want to see the video of how the Bean disposed of said chipmunk.
Did you really think that JJ was gonna let your mousey ass run amok around the compound?
Oh Hell No!
This isn’t going to end pretty son.
Here he is. Our cat- Mr JJ Jinglenuts.
I can’t believe how long her hair is getting. She’s becoming a little girl, not my baby any more. JJ Jinglenuts is obviously pooped after chasing zucchis around, lol.
When I pulled into the driveway last night after a long day at work our cat JJ Jinglenuts scampered off the walkway that leads to the entrance at the homestead.
What he left behind was his latest victim- this here mouse. I didn’t even think to stop and take the picture because I was hoping I could catch the Bean and Snoop Maddie Mad before they were fast asleep. Luckily The Bean was still awake in her bed. I gave her the news that JJ got a zucchi (what us Sicilians call mice). I told her that the zucchi was still on the front steps so she could see it if she wanted.
But then she started asking questions. She asked why it didn’t run away to which I said “because JJ got him”. Then somehow or other it got around to the fact that the zucchi was dead. She said- “so he’s sleeping?” I said no, he won’t be waking up, he’s dead. I suddenly became terrified at what questions she was going to ask next because I really hadn’t thought the whole what happens when you die thing through. -So I winged it.
I told her that the zucchi will be going to heaven and visit Grandma Felicia. Then she asked if the zucchi would have wings to which I replies yes. Then she asked what Grandma Felicia was like. I told her she was beautiful and she was incredibly loving and that we used to go over her house every Sunday for Pasta Zugu (spaghetti and sauce) and that she was the most incredible cook.
Next she asked where angels sleep. I told her that they sleep in the clouds and that everyone is happy and loving in heaven. Then we talked about Halos for quite a bit. She wasn’t getting the concept for a while but I think she finally got it. I told her they were circles of light that hover over your head when you are an angel. She asked if they follow you around to which I replied yes.
Then I told her I was going to take my shower. I kissed her on her forehead and told her sweet dreams like I always do. And she always replies the same thing back- sweet dreams Fa-Fa (that’s what she calls me).
Luckily JJ’s victim was still hanging out in the same spot I had left him last night so I could get the picture for you guys.
The Longtime GMG readers have gotten to know JJ Jinglenuts our cat.
We picked up JJ at a shelter when we were having a difficult time conceiving children. It had been a long many years and we were pretty depressed about the possibility of never being able to have kids.
Wouldn’t you know that within the same month of bringing JJ home, Eloise was conceived.
Needless to say he’s like our angel.
We got back from our Naples trip and JJ isn’t doing so well.
There’s cat puke all over the basement and he is bleeding out of his butt. We’re going to the vet asap.
Please say a prayer or two for him.
If Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness Then Mr JJ Jinglenuts Is One Holy Mother!
Does it taste like butter JJ?

Nobody has it better than Mr Jinglenuts. (other than the fact that he had his nads amputated)
Not sure this needs much explanation.
We’ve actually been contemplating the legal name change to JJ Not-So-Jingleuts ever since he had his boys “lopped off”.
Snoop Maddie Mad has a phantom cut on her finger. When we ask her where she got her boo boo she exclaims excitedly “JJ!” Now every time she bumps her head or falls we ask her who did it to her and she says “JJ!” Poor Mr Jingles, he’s pretty much doomed in this house.

If you click the picture and select “all sizes” you can see the bag up close and in greater detail.
How cool is the whole concept anyway? Bags made from recycled sails.
The material is obviously perfect because it is strong and durable and weather resistant. The used sails were going to end up clogging up some landfill but now are being made into beautiful works of functional art.
I mean it all makes such perfect sense. Hell, even Mr JJ Not-So Jinglenuts digs it. And if Mr JJ Not-So-Jinglenuts digs em, they must be CAF
