Jack found a small kitten behind his tool shed that had become very distressed due to no mother cat being present and no siblings to care for it. So he took them in, giving the kitten his name Teddy.
Once his wife died, Jack continued living in Pine Valley without giving in to anyone’s pressures to return to Soquel more frequently. He enjoyed his home, his Charles Russell prints, and playing semi-competitive rounds of putt-putt with Jacob, his grandson.
