Happy birthday to me!

Today is my 12th birthday! I can't believe it was 12 years ago today that Mom and Dad brought me home from the no kill shelter in Illinois (they lived across the river in Iowa at the time). I have had some great adventures and made some great friends in the past 12 years, and I am happy to have been able to share most of them with you. I'm hoping for some good stinky goodness cake tonight.

I know most people think of today as Tax Day, but I like to think of it more as Jasper Day -- it's a lot more fun that way, don't you think?

My calendar day!

Happy Friday! It appears your Friday just got better since it is my day on the Cats of the Cat Blogosphere calendar. So that means you get to look at me all day long.

This is me in one of my dramatic close up pictures, and one of Dad's favorites (it's even his Google+ picture).

Thanks again to Paula for all her hard work to get this calendar assembled and out to all of us. It really is a treat seeing everyone.

Maggie Long Arm

Maggie is a little cat, but she has long limbs. She likes to sit with one leg stretched out. Mom calls her Maggie Long Arm when she does this.

Here she is on Dad's lap watching TV in bed.

And just to prove it's not just her from leg, here she is with her back leg stretched out. Of course, this would make her Maggie Long Leg instead.

Sharing Dad's couch

Sometimes the secret to getting along is having a barrier.

Sharing
Josie and Huggy Bear decided they both wanted to be on the couch with Dad. Josie was in place first. Otherwise, I'm not sure how this would have worked out.

Huggy Bear snuggling
Huggy Bear got good and snuggled in against Dad's leg, and checked to make sure it was OK that he share the couch with Dad and Josie.

Very happy Josie
Josie was in her own world that night. I'm not even sure she knew Huggy Bear was on the other side of Dad's leg.

This is just a test picture at the bottom to see the new Flickr option of embed vs html:

Westley and Buttercup

I posted before about how Dad's sister-in-law rescued two kittens who had been thrown in the trash when they were a day old. Occasionally he would post a picture on Facebook. Well here is a nice little article about them and some great pictures. http://lovemeow.com/2014/03/amazing-rescue-of-buttercup-westley/#q6o2oUWtLSlUKAP5.01

It's and amazing story of love and survival. They are doing great and love to snuggle with each other, their people, and even the dogs.

Happy tummies

We are some happy kitties tonight. We got roast beast with Mom and Dad at dinner. Josie is happily curled on Dad's lap now. You can even see her smiling.
