Ivy Insurance of Jamaica Plain has a new office member, but this guy has four legs and a tail. Sikuwar, whose name means Sugar, is an Abyssinian. He has big shoes to fill – the company’s previous shop cat, Ivy II, passed away in August – but so far Sikuwar has been a big hit.


Sikuwar’s previous owner, John, passed away, leaving the cat in need of a home. John’s daughter, Laura Dembski, brought the cat to her home, but Sikuwar didn’t get along with Dembski’s other cats. Since Dembski owns a hair salon just down the street from Ivy Insurance, she approached owner Tim Foley about fostering Sikuwar.

Foley agreed, and Sikuwar has begun following him around the shop. The gorgeous cat has already made quite an impression, and we’ll bet that he’ll be spending quite a bit more time around the office in the future.
