Handsome Jack

I am so lucky that this pet sitting gig has allowed me to surround myself with some of the most handsome boys you've ever seen. Jack is one of them.

He may be handsome, but when he's outside, Jack does not like to be held. I think he's afraid I'm going to take him back in the house. He gets outside time while I take care of his litter boxes and food/water bowls, then it's back in at the end of my visit. Of course, I sometimes take a bit of extra time and hang out with him for a bit, enjoying the sunshine and peaceful atmosphere where he lives, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Jack loves to wander through the woods, watching for birds, bugs and whatever else he can find. His eyes are always wide open, and he's always alert to the least little movement in the leaves.

Sometimes Jack is sitting in this window when I get there, like he just knew I was coming and is waiting for me. He's not often standing up in it like this though. He's more often just peering through the space at the bottom of the blinds and all you can see are his eyes staring out at you. Would be pretty creepy if I didn't know he was such a sweetheart.

I've been visiting Jack twice a week for several months now, but those visits are about to come to an end. I've grown very fond of this boy and will for sure miss seeing him every week.
