Red Tabby

Sleeping is tops on the list now. But tummy rubs are still high.

Dirty kitty box. Very indignant yowls if it's not perfect.

Favorite Toy:
Mousie -- a decade-old plush mouse with a velcro pouch for catnip. He has a distinctive "MMMphhmrow" sound when he's carrying Mousie around.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of the radiator cover, or on his plush bed under the "french fry" lamp that keeps him warm.

Favorite Food:
Butter. And Jarlsberg cheese.

Really good at lowering human blood pressure. And gives a good back-of-the-neck or belly massage with his paws (claws in).


Arrival Story:
Jasper was born to Spider Monkey, a calico that a friend and his buddies rescued from I-70 outside of Washington DC, where she was stranded in the median. When I found out that two of the kittens were red tabbies, I asked for one.

Red tabbies are the best, and Jasper lives up to his color buddies. He's the official household greeter (Can I take your coat? Get you a drink?). Want to watch TV? Jazz will join you. Going to bed? Let Jazzie keep your feet warm. Want to take a walk? Get Jazzbo his leash and he'll step right out with you. When the Jazzer-Dazzer was 14, he was diagnosed with CRF, and when he was 17, hyperthyroidism was added to the list of conditions. He took tapazole for the hyperthyroidism, but the CRF never progressed to the point where he needed medication for it. He was healthy and active (well, active for a senior citizen), despite being stone deaf and arthritic, until his 18th birthday. Then he started to lose weight rapidly. Various blood tests and exams didn't find a cause for it. He was scheduled for an ultrasound, but he was so weak that even if the vet found some sort of cancer, he would not have survived treatment for it. So we sadly helped him to the Bridge on July 21, 2013. He'll never be forgotten.

A salute to a special lady

As some of you may know, the lovely Jezebel made her journey to the Bridge this morning. Her passing will leave a big hole in her human's heart.

Jez was almost 21 years old, an age that few of us reach, and a testament to the loving care she received. She was a real character, a beautiful tortie girl who could crack wise and talk sweet. I had the pleasure of dancing with her a time or two, and she was as light on her feet as a thistle seed in the wind.

I know her many friends on Catster will miss her dearly. We are proud to welcome her to the Bridge, and congratulate her on a long life, very well lived. Rest now, sweet Jezebel.

Well, here we are at the Bridge, me and my brother Patch, and Kaci Sunshine and Big Harry and Charlie, along with Calvin and Taffy and Yolo and Sonny Bono and Baci and Hooch and lots of other beautiful redheads.

We love all the angels here, but we redheads have a special bond. We're proud to welcome Natalie the Natcat. I think she wants to be team captain. That's fine with us.

She found some pictures of me and Bear and Severian that she didn't know she had, so she posted them. The one of me curled up next to her on the couch made her teary-eyed, and she was surprised that when taking a picture of me in front of her computer screen, she also got one of the few decent pictures of Sev that she has ever taken.
