A dads love.......Update for my sweet friend...

I am updating my post because I heard that my darling girlfriend Sweet Praline has left for the bridge. I am sending much love to her mum Paula as I know she will be heartbroken, but she gave her little girl the ultimate act of love and let her go when it was time. We will so miss you sweet darling.




Last night dad chopped up some stinky goodness really small and tried to feed me from a spoon, he was there for ages and ages just trying me with little bits at a time from the spoon. I ate some too. dad wanted to cheer.





Sorry the pics are a bit blurred but mum used her phone so as not to distract me. The trick didn't work this morning but dad will try again later.




I think mum has told you before that when she met dad she had me and my sister Dollycat, dad said he wasn't a cat person but knew we came as a package. I think I can safely say now, that dad is indeed a cat person and I have him wrapped around my paw. dad says he was misinformed about cats and never knew that they could be as loving etc.




Love GJ xx

Mama has always felt that people that don't love cats, have never taken the time to get to know a cat.

We keep purraying for you, GJ.....we love you and your humans very much.

Dads are just the best, GJ, and yours is so lovely to coax you to eat. We think he's totally converted to an official "Cat Daddy".

Brian said...

Your Dad and Mom both love you so much GJ, and so do we! Keep eating pal!

We are having sads about Sweet Praline too.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Good to see pictures of you eating. We are purring and purring that you will soon just gobble up that food. Keep trying...

pawhugs, Max

Simba said...

GJ, I am so glad your Dad was converted to being a cat person. You eat up, now, okay?

We are so very very sad about Sweet Praline.

It is good to see you eating, try and keep up the good work. Will be thinking of you,

Yvonne.

Hansel said...

That's because so many silly people don't understand or treat cats as loving animals. they treat us like we are just property, and not the cuddly friends that we truly are. If you make us outcasts, we will be. But if you cuddle and love us- we will return that to you.

Unless of course it's tesla.


You keep yourself eating there dear friend- we need you to stay strong.

The Crew said...

Mom has always been a "cat person", but Dad didn't know how great we are 'til he met Mom. Now he loves cats!!

We're sending purrs your way and hope you'll feel better soon, GJ.

Junior and Orion said...

GJ buddy, you must start eating more! We will be purring for that medicine to stimulate your appetite!

Margaret said...

Good boy, GJ. Maybe your vet will put you on a special diet.

Admiral Hestorb said...

GJ, you beautiful boy...your dad loves you and you love him just as much. Seeing him feeding you like that made mom's eyes tear up as she has tried so hard with me too. Our mom's and dad's love us and do all they can to make our lives as sweet as we make theirs. That's why we love them so.

OK, Ginger Jasper - here goes - if you know how much Dad must love you to have changed his mind about kitties, then you must show him how much you love him by eating like a very good boy. C'mon now, you can do it. Can you hear us rooting for you all the way here across the Big Pond.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

GJ, we think yoor dad is very much a cat person now ~ he just needed to know how super cats really are. We can see just how much he is trying to help you.

We are heart broken for Paula and Praline too.

KarenMcG said...

Well, Ginger J, we're sure glad you had a few nibbles. Good on that dad of yours for patiently helping you get some snacks in you.

Your mum did good on getting those photos.

BeadedTail said...

Those photos are so sweet GJ! We can tell you have your dad wrapped around your paw and we can tell that he doesn't mind one bit! Your mum and your dad love you very much and we do too so are hoping you have more of an appetite today.

We're sad about Sweet Praline. Our mommy has been very sad because of all the kitties not feeling well and those having to go to the bridge.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

You clearly have done quite a job on your Dad, GJ.

We are just purring and hoping that this food issue can be resolved once and for all and you can go back on concentrating on loving one another!

We are heart-broken too for Sweet Praline and her Mom.

Purrs,
The Chans

Kitty said...

Keep eating Jasper. We don't want to lose you too!

Äiti says your dad is a 'girt softie'. We just think you have him trained. And he'd do ANYTHING to get you to eat. Come on, Sir GJ - we're all rooting for you.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

GJ, we know for sure that both your dad and mum love you with all their hearts! We are just so happy when we hear that you have eaten some...you can do it!! We can tell by your pictures that you definitely turned your dad into a kitty lover and we know he loves you so much. Keep eating GJ...we love you too! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Amy and The House of Cats said...

GJ we understand about how dad's can become cat people because ours was the same way. We think it is great you ate a bit for him we just wish you would keep it up. We are sending you lots of be hungry purrs and prayers.

And we are so sad about Sweet Prailine. We were by to send her mom purrs and prayers too.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

You are so sweet with your dad. We hope you are eating. Please eat and stay strong.
And we are so sad today about Sweet Praline.
Purrs,
JB

Marg said...

GJ, you sure are lucky to have two such good hooomans in your life. Dad sure is trying hard to get you to eat. We sure wish you would start eating soon. We will send more purrs and we are going to inform the donkeys to cross those hooves of theirs and maybe that will work. Take care.

Harry Spotter said...

What a loving mom and dad you have. You are very loved and in our thoughts and prayers.

ArtemisiaFSS said...

GJ, please eat more for your Mum & Dad. We are sending healing purrs to you and Scylla has offered to loan you half her appetite as she eats enough for 4 cats and has appetite to spare.

We thinks people that "aren't cat people" just haven't meet the right cat. Grandpa supposedly isn't a cat person but he is the one that let Artemisia in the house and feed her special food when she lived with the Grandparents.

septembermom said...

Your Dad really is trying, GJ. You guys are making a good team. Give Mum an extra hug for me :)

Old Kitty said...

Awwww beautiful GJ!!!! You have an amazing Dad there!! Me and Charlie are so willing you on to take all that yummy food Dad is giving you!!! We hope and pray that you continue to fight this illness! We are so grateful that you have such wonderful mum and dad to help you!!!! Yay!!!!

Awww your dad is a wonderful man to fall in love with mum and you and your angel sister Dollycat! What a rare find your dad is, truly! :-)

We are so sad about Sweet Praline. Our thoughts are with her mum and family. Take care

I'm so sorry about your friend. I would say that your dad is a great cat person, it's obvious that he loves you so much.

Madi and Mom said...

Hugs Madi

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Your dad is a very kind and smart man to accept that you were a package deal and to not try to break you up.

GJ, we really want you to eat more! Oh, how we wish they could figure out what is going on so you can get your appetite back.

It is so very sad about Praline.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Thanks for your lovely comment, Hope GJ goes along ok, must be worrying for you all.
Take care/
Yvonne.

SuziQCat said...

Lovely tribute to Praline today. We are so thankful your dad saw the light regarding loving cats. You are very lucky GJ...now please start eating more :)

Laila and Minchie said...

We are purring that you start eating more GJ! If your dad can't get you to eat, nobody can. Such cute pictures of the two of you!

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

We are so glad that Dad has come to love cats and that he is doing his best for you.

Sagira said...

Very sorry to hear about your friend. :(

Your dad sure does love you GJ.

caspersmom said...

Ginger Jasper I'm so glad that you and Sister Dolly changed your Dad into a cat person. I do hope you eat for your Dad Ginger, we are still praying for you. Sorry to hear about your girlfriend Sweet Praline. My sister Patches passed away this last Wednesday. So we know how you feel. Mom thinks your Dad is a Navy Man. Don't know if that's how you say it in the United Kingdom.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Your male human just needed to be educated, GJ... which you did quite nicely!

Au and Target said...

GJ I just got an aweful fright. THere's a picture that looks just like you on the front page of the Daily Telegraph and the headline screams "Cat killer who's claimed more than nine lives"

So glad it's not you!

Sorry to hear about Praline. We'll whoosh over to Paula's now.

Please keep eating! Your dad's doing a fine job of nursing you and your mum. Nice man.

Cloon said...

We are purring for you buddy, please eat more Num-Nums, we want you to be well. PS: Theese is excellent that you converted your Dad to a cat person. Good on ya!

Derby, Ducky said...

GJ your Dad learned good. We are loving and can show affection to those we love.

Shawn said...

Keep up the good work on you eating. We can tell your dad loves you very much and wants you to start eating and be healthy.
Your Dad sounds like ours, when Mom decided to bring Chloe into the house, she was first, he was not a happy camper. The minute Mom brought her home, he melted and the rest is history!

Danielle said...

We are glad that you are eating and hope that you continue to!

Kari said...

Your dad is a really good person, dear Jasper Someone very special and loving. We get all misty ever when we see how hard he is trying to get you to eat. It warms our hearts to see how he loves you and , since you eat for him, how much you love him. Please reward his devotion by eating for him, please. It will make him so happy! After you've had a bit to eat, give your dad a little kiss to let him know how much you appreciate him. You have such wonderful parents, love. We beg you to eat if not for your sweet self, then for them.

The Island Cats said...

GJ, we're glad you ate some. We can see how much your dad loves you.

And we are so sad about Sweet Praline. We will miss her very much.

Jacqueline said...

We are so sad about beautiful Praline=she was everyone's sweetheart and we miss her already...Such sweet photos of you and your Dad, GJ=please keep eating, handsome boy...We love you and will keep purring for your continued recovery...xoxoxoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Catsparella said...

Yes I certainly think you can safely say that your Dad is a cat person! It's so sweet seeing you two together! Please try to keep eating, GJ..we so badly want for you to get better! xo

Angel and Kirby said...

Your Dad is a very special cat person!

Sweet Praline said...

Please eat GJ. Sweet Praline will be watching over you from the bridge. Thank you for remembering her today.

Mom Paula

Chesney Cats said...

We are heartbroken over Praline crossing the Bridge. We know it was best for her but we will miss her furry much.

You have trained your dad really good!! Mama once converted a non-cat person too.

Now GJ, you really need to start eating so we don't have to worry about you!

san said...

Keep Up the good work of Keeping your Paws on Your dad. We are also glad your dad has been helping you eat. It shows how godo you are at your job GJ.

the amigos and san

Hannah and Lucy said...

Now come along GJ - show Eric and Flynn's mum and dad just how much you can eat - perhaps they will bring you a fresh mousie for a treat. We think you dad was just pretending not to love cats when you first knew him!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Gattina said...

I think no normal human can resist a cat once he know them better !
I hoped so much that GJ was better and that his appetite came back. It's really strange. I have a friend she had to feed her cat for a while with a spoon and it took her a lot of time to get some food into her cat, but the cat had toxoplasmose (?) but is now back to normal again. It took quiet a long time.

zoolatry said...

... we think it's pawsible your very smart Mom "picked" that Dad just for you ... and she sure did made an excellent choice ...

Ludo van Doggy said...

oh Jasper, I did hope I'd come back here and see you all back to your old self. You is a lucky kitty to have such a good Dad!
~lickies, Ludo

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh GJ, sweet ManCat. We are sooo glad you ate for your dad last night, and we're hoping you've eaten more by the time that you read this. You worry them, you know. And you worry us. We are not a bit surprised that you turned your dad's thinking around ... how could he not fall in love with kitties when he has you as the UltimateRoleModel.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by our cousin Zoë's blog. We left a little comment after yours, explaining a bit about who you are. We've talked about you ... a lot, actually ... when we've been at Gram's in Florida. Now Zoë will really remember who you are and just how special you are to us.

Soft purrs. We ARE learning to purr, you know!
