Jasper was adopted in late 2009. For the first 4 years life was wonderful The kitty was easygoing and his best friend was a 50 pound dog. Then Jasper’s owner got sick and after a couple of months went to her doctor. The doctor did a lot of tests and it turned out for some reason that the lady had suddenly become allergic to the loving kitty. She tried clipping his hair, and antihistamines, however, nothing but the removal of this special kitty was going to help her recover.
The first night that Jasper was in the shelter, he put his head in the corner and would not look at us. No purring, no eating, he just felt that for some unknown reason he had done something wrong and his world would never be the same! By the next day he had nibbled some food, and would purr and with lots of cuddles he soon was purring and eating normally.
One of our other male kitties, just a year old, had a playmate called Sweet Pea who was adopted the same day Jasper came in. Tanner stuck his paw under the door and when the door was opened went in and rubbed against Jasper. At first Jasper growled, but Jasper was lonely too. Soon he allowed Tanner to stay beside him, and seemed more content. Now our job is to find another purrfect home for this gentle silver tabby who likes dogs and accepts other friendly cats.
Let’s all send good wishes and prayers for a family to love this special boy.
Granny Kat, Norma
