Scratch Me Here

"Scratch Me Here"

Jelly Bean prominently displays his “scratch me here” spot.

He is the only one of the Family of Five who has a significant spot on his chest, as is common in cats of a solid color or markings elsewhere on their bodies. Giuseppe has a little loose row of white hairs like a little necklace, Mewsette has a small collection in a group on her chest and Mr. Sunshine about six white hairs scattered on his chest, though he does have a little white pouf on his belly. Mimi has none.

JB’s isn’t really a spot, it’s more like a smudge, as if it got smeared at some point in his development. When he was a baby it looked like a clerical collar; at that time his name was still “Rodolfo” after the male lead in La Boheme so I called him “Father Rodolfo”. He was still a baby then!

Don't Look!

What you can’t see unless Jelly Bean decides to let it all hang out is his little white Speedo on his belly; alternately, I call this his “thong” or his “diaper”, depending on my mood. No matter, The Bean is unendingly cute. I don’t know how he got to be so cute, but I figure his white spots have something to do with it.
