    Thank you for all your kind words.

    Jasper had a large tumour in his mouth and had stopped eating. The prognosis wasn't good so we decided to let him go.

    I found a little comfort holding him in my arms.

    He has been with me through my trials and tribulations. It wasn't easy but it was right for me. My hubby was there too.

    It will always be a memorable day as it was my birthday.

    I wasn't sure, he's my first cat I have had from a kitten.

    My previous cat Panther Panny for short was a stray, I had him for 7 years I have no idea how old he was when he adopted me.

    Thank you we have been laughing at some of his antics, I had to get a litter tray with a lid. I swore he used to scooped the cat lit out with his paw and fling it, it used to be everywhere except in the tray.

    As a kitten he climbed the tree in our back garden and couldn't get down. Hubby had to climb the tree to get him, the sight was funny you expect little boys to climb trees not grown men.

    I would like to thank you all for your support.

    I must admit I didn't think Jasper's passing would hit me so hard. He was a very indepedent cat who only came for a cuddle when he wanted to. I think partly its the "if" word wondering whether it was the right decision.

    I read a post which describes a cat's owner as a slave, his home here was definitely a hotel.

    Duke our SBT was very depressed on Saturday but he is doing well now, although he is still a little confused.
