Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 03, 2016
Jasper was our much-loved American Shorthair cat. We adopted her from a pet store in 2002, she was very obviously unhappy there and looked extremely miserable so we took it upon ourselves to give this beautiful little girl a good home.
She was our first cat, and so we hadn't had much experience with them in the past except for looking after our neighbours. Despite that though, she was a dream to handle. We very quickly got attached to each other, and she loved nothing more than occupying a seat upon our laps. Cat's gotta have her own throne, right?
When we got our first dog shortly after acquiring her, she quickly established herself at the house boss. Normally you'll see the cat be frightened of the dog, but it was the other way around with this one. Jasper wasn't having any of it!
Unfortunately she passed away a few years ago after a short battle with stomach cancer. It was completely out of the blue, so it hit us hard. That being said though, I'm extremely grateful for the time I got to send with her.
