Meet Jasper, the invincible cat! Many people say cats have 9 lives, and if that’s true then Jasper sure has gone through some of his! Jasper’s life growing up was not the easiest, but with his new family, life couldn’t get any better!
Jasper is a lynx point siamese cat who started his life in shelters, where he was picked up from the streets. He was adopted by a family shortly after, and that’s where Jasper’s story begins. In the few years that his new family had him, Jasper was an outdoor cat and got into a lot of trouble. One night the family heard a bunch of screeching noises and horrifying meows. The family went outside to see what was going on, and saw Jasper fighting with an entire family of raccoons! The family immediately ran out to break up the fight and once they reached Jasper, they couldn’t believe what they saw. Standing in front of them was a family of 4 raccoons that were all trying to fight Jasper. The family was able to scare away the raccoons, and Jasper was ok. The family knew they had a lucky cat after this because not only did he survive this, he also survived getting hit by a car once before.
Shortly after this incident, a tragedy came where the family could no longer take care of Jasper, and needed to get rid of him. The family asked around to friends and neighbors to see if anyone could take him in, but no one could. The family had no other choice but to bring Jasper back to the animal shelter. Just days before bringing him there, they had received a phone call from a girl named Annie who said she could take him! Annie was a family friend, and when she found out about Jasper having to go back to the animal shelter she was heartbroken and knew she had to take him in.
Once Jasper moved into his new house, it was royalty life from there. Jasper became an indoor cat, and now has a two-story house filled with six girls who all adore him. What more could he really ask for? Jasper gets to sleep in any room that he wants, and now has 6 people to pet him when he pleases. His nick-name is “The King” and his mom says he is the most handsome fella she’s ever seen! His favorite place to lay is right on your chest, and likes to be pet underneath his chin while he lays there. His favorite toy is any sort of string, and will chase the string for hours. For being a 12 year old cat, he sure is in great shape! He still plays as if he is a little kitten!
Jasper just recently got a new brother that he loves. Annie, Jasper’s mom, got a new pug puppy named Spud! Jasper and Spud get along for the most part, but sometimes when Jasper is trying to sleep, Spud will jump all over him, wanting to play. Jasper is really tolerant when Spud bites at him, and will simply just put his nose in the air, and walk away like a true king.
Although Jasper started off in a troublesome home, it is heartwarming to see that fairytales do come true.
