Proud Jimmy

Oh dear, take a look at this!  That's our Jimmy Tipton walking proudly with his delicata squash!

From his mama, Monika...

Your talented foster son, Jimmy Tipton, is now nearly one-year-old! He seeks out fruits and vegetables which he proceeds to carry about the house. He also finds peanuts and places them in our empty shoes. So funny, smart, inventive and dear...



Thank you for this great picture and good laugh, Monika! Please give that silly boy some love from all of us!

  1. Please send Jimmy Tipton some love from us -- if I know anything about cats (and I know THIS), that tail says he's in the top 1% of Happiest Cats in the World.

    1. They're delicious too, you can eat the peel so a lot less work than a butternut!

  4. Didn't you know that hunting delicata squash is a rite of passage for his cat culture and he is now a man...cat!

    1. That's what I thought too. I wouldn't put it past a cat to go carrying squashes around, but I'm confused as to what he's actually biting into.

      Squash or no squash, the tail doesn't lie--that is one proud cat!

  12. WHAT?! Wow!! That is some remarkable tooth action!

    Of course I had to go back and look at his baby pictures... so, so cute.

  15. Jimmy, dear, squash isn't for kitties, and if you want to catch a squirrel, you need to put those nuts outside, not in your humans' shoes. XD What a silly boy!

  16. Oh, he was cute enough as a kitten, but now!! NOW he has to go and do this! Handsome silly boy!

  17. I've been kind of down all day, but thanks to Jimmy, I finally had a laugh. What a sweet, silly boy.

  19. Oh my! Jimmy is one handsome, hilarious fellow. Lucky humans who have this guy. I haven't posted much lately but have to say how much I have enjoyed all the Wylla lately and love the time change topic. My hefty boy Rock still hasn't adjusted. Thanks for all the great posts!

  20. What a dear, happy, stripey boy he is!

    In regards to the questions about how he could bite into it- "Delicata" squash have quite thin skin compared to butternut and such. (Random fun fact- my marmie Colby was named Butternut when he was a foster- his brothers were Butterscotch and Butterum. And his tortie sister, Cherry.)

  21. What a funny and handsome tabby boy he is. (Yes, LG, you are funny and handsome, too.) Also, I need to try delicata for my squash and apple bisque recipe. Love butternut but not the associated peeling and cutting up. (Yes, LG, speaking of food, it may be time for a little something.)

  22. If Monika is in the mood for a follow-up, I would love to see close-ups of the tooth marks on all that produce. And where does Jimmy take all that squash? Is it just one hiding place, or does Monika have to hunt all over the house? Inquiring minds want to know! :)

  23. More! I want more pictures of jimmy carrying all sorts of vegetables and fruits. So cute and funny.
