Jasper

Jasper was not my cat.
He belonged to a patient I cared for six years ago in her own home until she died.
Cats are unique, but this cat was the loudest I had ever met in my life.
Especially at dinner time!

He was very spoiled , and way before my client became terminal.
But he was a beautiful old guy, a new great home was found for him.
The most stunning thing about Jasper were his green eyes.
He lived to be eighteen years old.

Do you have any cat stories to share?

Thanks for adding me as a follower! I plan to do the same with you. Your pictures are gorgeous! I have a big fat cat (who you may have seen, since I posted a pic of him last night!) named Mittens. I've had him since he was 2 months old, and he will be 10 in October. He's been with me the entire time I have been out of work due to disability. I'm not quite sure how I could've ever gotten along without him. He's my baby, that's for sure! He's brightened up my days when I've felt down and out, and has provided many laughs. I can only hope that I'll have him for another several years! :)

Colleen, I did notice your "big" cat. How much do you think he weighs? Nice cat Colleen. I am sure he brings you a lot of comfort and compassion when you deal with those bad days with your disability.

Superb shot! Speaking about loud cats, my stepmother had a very spoiled cat, Hugo, a handsome male-cat that always was expecting to be served with a fresh can. He always was taking few bites, then leaving the can for the other two cats, and even if no one else was touching it, he was meowing for another brand new can... he was 25 when he died, hit by a car...

Kaartijer, your mother in laws cat lived to be 25 years old! This is amazing. I have never known a cat to live that long. Our cat Harry lived for 18 years and I thought that was a very long life, Isn't it interesting to see all the characteristics of cats? Thank you for your post.
