Jazz Cat Jay is Ottawa’s ambassador of Jazz and of hepcats everywhere. Trained not only in the fine art of litter box use and not falling from high places, this swingin’ tabby has an ear for Early Jazz music, from Ragtime to Big Band to Hot Jazz and all styles in between. In between his many cat naps, he enjoys tapping his paws to the beat of the high hat and the wail of the horns.
While he may be the dandiest of the world’s great Jazz lovers, he also enjoys hanging with his pals Spartacat, PJ, and Frankie, and giving his human cuddles – when he’s in the mood, which is pretty much always. Being the feline philosopher he is, you can see him every day spending time gazing out the window on to the environs of downtown Ottawa, pondering deep cat thoughts like ‘where do we come from?’, ‘who am I?’, and ‘LOOK! LOOK! SQUIRREL!’. But it isn’t long before his thoughts turn back to Jazz and he’s once again blogging you what he knows you love to hear!
He is…Jazz Cat Jay!
