Jane Thomas, age 16, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Friday March 1, 2019 with her family by her side. Jane, or Janie, as she was often called was born April 15, 2002.
Jane came to her family as a kitten, alongside her brother, from one of their Aunt's litters. Lindsey and Cal were each allowed to pick out one kitten. Jane was Cal's selection and Jane was always referred to as "Cal's Cat". Even though she was “Cal’s Cat”, she was very special to her whole family.
Jane was a shy, quiet cat, but always loved attention from anyone, she wasn’t picky. She could often be found lying in high places all over the house. She loved to lay in laundry baskets and when 9:00 PM rolled around and she couldn’t be found…the first place to look was the porch, she could be found there nightly, almost like clockwork! Her family always knew when she wanted something, she would demand their attention by meowing at them. As Jane got older in life, she loved being near her family and would ask them to pet her. She was very loyal and good at keeping them company.
If you had the pleasure of meeting Jane, you would have noticed her beautiful green eyes first. She was always complimented on how beautiful they were. In her younger years she was a show cat, showing in the Tipton County 4-H Fair, winning Grand Champion a few times.
Jane loved any and all kinds of cat treats, but as she got older, she developed a craving for almost any kind of human food. Her family found the types of things she wanted to steal from your plate hilarious.
When her family was asked what Jane meant to them, the said, “Jane was one of the family and is dearly missed. While things will not ever be the same without her, we will always remember all the good memories we shared and the love and joy she brought into our lives for the 16 years she was with us.”
Jane is survived by her family Sandy, Lindsey, and Cal Thomas; her brother Jimmy (cat), and adopted brother Baron (dog).
Please feel free to leave a condolence or special memory you have of Jane with her family on her tribute wall.
“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
