Jude went by many nicknames: Judy, Jude-bug, Juders, Bug, and Bug-a-boo. I named him after the Beatles song “Hey, Jude”. He was a sweet, but incredibly shy fellow. A black cat with golden-yellow eyes, he reminded me of a bee or a beetle. As a two-year adoptee, he hid in the closet most of the time for the first two weeks. I sang to him “Hey, Jude don’t make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better…’ to get him to come out. Over the next 10 years he came out of his shell and stole my heart.
