My name is Jasmine, but around here they call me the Enforcer. Nancy caught my three all black kittens and myself in July 2016 over on the lawn of Lockheed Martin. I think she is the reason they put up ‘Posted’ signs, because she was setting traps for us because it was kind of dangerous for a Mommy and three kittens crossing back and forth across the road at the end of the Lockheed Martin driveway.
She caught us all right, but I had a surprise for her. I had six more all black kittens a month later. Yep, I’m the mommy extraordinaire! They call me the Enforcer because I know what Mommy’s are supposed to do. They make the babies mind.
Well I made everyone in the upstairs group mind. No exceptions! If anybody starts racing around and acting rowdy, I will put a stop to it with a swat to the head.
All of my kittens got adopted but one, Sylvester is still with me. He is bigger than me. I think his father was a Bombay because he has big round yellow eyes and is all black. Sylvester respects me though. He will stop cold in his tracks if I get up and start walking toward him. He knows who the boss is and it’s not him!
Sylvester and I have been here almost four years and life is a lot better here than dodging Lockheed Martin traffic, where we slept in the underpass under the road; on rainy days that was not much fun.
It can be fun here, but I have a lot to do. There are 15 cats upstairs to keep an eye on. Nancy knows I do a good job and pets me regularly, especially around my head (I really like that), and sometimes she will give me a little treat from the table because I earned it! But don’t tell the others.
