I started the blog in September 2008 at the suggestion of my daughter in law who blogged with Ben the Rotti, she thought it would help me as was at a low period but little did I know it would become a huge part of our lives and that we would make so many wonderful friends who would share in all our lives ups and downs. You are all wonderful. I know our Jasper touched so many and was loved by so many. Barrie and I are blown away with so many comments on the news of his leaving us. I will get to each and every one of you in thanks. You all understand so well..
First post 30.9.2008
Hello, Ginger Jasper here. I am new to this so you will have to bear with me please. I am a very lovable Ginger, ( or Persian red to give my posh title) I have a posh name too Tiny Tots Caramar Toffee to be exact. I prefer Jasper. Better don’t you think? I just got into this blogging to maybe meet other likeable cats. I will keep this short for now and see what happens next. Love from me Ginger Jasper. xxx
Jasper when he first came to me. He was so adorable and stayed the same always..
My Dollie cat hated him when he first arrived but he soon had her won over...
When I moved in with Barrie he was not a cat person.. Jasper changed that quick smart and they became as close as can be. They did so much together.
From just relaxing together..
Jasper always loved being with the little beans and was always gentle..
He adored being in the yard with us either on his garage roof surveying his kingdom or sunbathing on the garden seat or his favourite pastime chasing bugs.
During the years we have been blogging we have met quite a few blog friends along with flat Jasper. We have made lifelong friends..
Jasper joined in all the events in the blogosphere. We laughed with friends and we cried with friends. We tried to join in all events and had a lot of fun along the way..
Two years ago this month( November) Jasper got very ill with renal and heart failure. We were told that they didn't think he would last until Christmas. They didn't count on the power of the paw or on the love and dedication that pulled him through and gave us two more years.
Barrie lovingly gave him so much care with daily medication and love and hope.
We have so many things with Jasper on around the house. Pictures, paintings, jewellery, cushions. Here are just a few We treasure each and every one..
I got this one for Barrie as a surprise the Christmas when Jasper was so ill. I was so thankful he was there to help open it..
A few of my favourite pictures..
Jasper always wanted to be close to us and would sit either on us or as close as could be. When I came in from work he would be there and into my arms and climbing on to my neck before I even got my coat off. He would watch for me coming home..
I loved sending and receiving cards and joined in both with CWB and DWB card exchange. This is Jaspers wall. How I will miss his door and wall full of cards this year
We are going to miss all this so much. Our house is now so empty..
I hope I did justice with this post to our sweet boy.. We have so many memories and wanted to share just a few.. I cant give up the blog because you all mean so much, and when I feel more up to it will post about something and everything if that ok. Please keep me in the loop about everything and I will visit you all soon.
With love, hugs and thanks for all the caring.. I am convinced that the power of the paw helped our sweet boy stay with us for two more magical years.
