Ginger Jasper by Katie's mom

Today we learned that Ginger Jasper, whom we all loved so much, flew away from us to the Bridge.

When I saw that email from Ann, tears immediately formed in my eyes and I went to the link even though I wished it were not so, it was.

I loved that precious boy.  I will miss him terribly as will the rest of us.

Carol and Barrie, I send my condolences and my love to you both.  As many have already said, Jasper knew how much you loved him and he loved you, his mum and dad as well.  Very deeply.

Good bye for awhile dearest GJ.  We will all meet again in the by and by.  And while I wait, Katie and I will watch for your brilliant Star tonight.

Good night darling GJ.  All our love.

  1. Love and purrs to GJ's Mum and Dad and many, many friends. We just got to know him during Secret Paws last year, and he was such a sweet boycat. We think there was a grand welcome to the Bridge today, with the Admiral and Mr. Teeth jostling to get up front XOXOXO

  6. Such a handsome and well-loved boy....I wish I'd known him better but I still grieve when any friend no matter how close leaves for the Bridge. I know it's a "better place" but it's so sad when they must go.....

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  8. So sorry to hear this. It just breaks my heart. Whenever I hear of another pet leaving I have to go pick up Oreo and cuddle with him for as long as he'll stay put. They are our babies.

  21. Such a beautiful tribute to a beautiful friend. We miss and love GJ, so very much. Even though there is much sadness here, we know the Bridge just got a lot brighter. And even though we are mourning, we smile at the thought of GJ, Admiral, our Sammy and so many others frolicking together as they wait at the Bridge.
