Jasper, the Cat of the Day
Name: Jasper
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tuxedo Cat
Home: Charlotte Hall, Maryland, USA
   This is Jasper, Jazz for short, a one-year-old tuxedo cat we adopted from our local animal rescue shelter. Jasper was meant to replace our eight-year-old cat Jake who died suddenly, and as a companion for me during my surgery recovery at home. He hopped onto my lap and purred up a storm when we walked into the room where he was and I said "this is the one." He's so vain... he walked into the house like he owned the place... slept wrapped around my husband's head the first night and plays with Molly the springer spaniel and ignores the hisses of the resident queen cat Josephine. He squeaks rather than meowing and is a quick study on how to get his running out the door to explore... and coming home covered with leaves, twigs and cobwebs. Needless to say, he's taken over our home and our hearts!
