Ginger Jasper Forever



It was with great sadness that we heard our good friend Jasper - GJ had made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
He first became ill in 2011 and was not expected to live beyond that Christmas. Against all the odds he fought a valiant battle and graced all our lives for a further 2 1/2 years.
Mum and dad were lucky enough to be able to meet him face to face when they went to stay for a few days before mum had her operation. Once they met him they immediately fell in love with him.
GJ and the two mums.

We never knew him when he was a baby, but he was a very cute little furball.

We have chosen some more of our favourite pictures of him below.
We are so glad that we met you through blogging and that has led to a firm and lasting friendship.
You will be always loved and forever missed GJ

  13. 2013 has certainly been a year of heartbreak. Eric, now Jasper as well as many other extraordinary kitties have crossed the bridge. A year of terrible loss.
    You were so lucky to have met him. It's something we all wish we could have done. Like Eric, we will miss Jasper beyond words.
    Special love to our dear Flynn.

  19. This is a most wonderful tribute to GJ. There is a huge hole now in the blogosphere, and GJ will be missed. I am sure Eric is there to welcome him to the Bridge where they'll both play proudly with high tails. We know your Humans will miss him a lot, and also can help Carol and Barrie in their loss.

  26. When I heard about precious GJ, I immediately thought of your precious Eric=your boys (Eric and Flynn of course) and GJ were some of the first blog friends I fell in love with back in Fall 2009 when I discovered cat blogs after a big surgery kept me in bed with the computer a while (JCH started in January 2010)...Their passing truly hurt my heart, but I know sweet Eric was there to greet darling GJ at the Bridge and we will all see them again one day...A lovely tribute to such a dear sweetheart..just like your Eric...Love and hugs, Jackie and Ivor/Carol and Barrie...J
