Wordful Wednesday


This is my first kitty of my "adult" life. His name was Jasper and he was the best most awesome cat in the world. We also called him Bop and Bop a Weno. Don't know why for sure.

When I would read the newspaper he was just like Garfield and lay right on top of the part I was reading. I would move him off and he would plop right back in the middle of the paper.

When he was five years old he got some nasty bladder stones. Nasty for him and nasty for my house. Turns out he had to have surgery and had a stone the size of a thumb nail removed. Poor baby. That costs me $200 which in 1983 was alot of money. But he was worth it.

He lived to the ripe old age of 16. He helped me through my years of infertility and turned out to be a great feline friend for my first born human child.

To this day I still get teary eyed when I think of him. This picture shows exactly what kind of cat he was. A total and complete stud muffin! Way too cool to sit around and act like a cat. (And do you love my couch and carpet? Can you say 1970's?)

SO 70's. I love it! Cats really are the best animals...so low key and lovable when you need them to be. Usually. He's a cutie!

Thanks for visiting my site. I see that you were as much in awe of the 19,000 figure as I was :D
