sad

Lovely cat Jasper has died.  He was my friend's cat, coming to this house about the same time we did, thirteen years ago.  When we saw those massive paws reaching through the cage door at the shelter, we knew he'd be a big cat.  And he was:  large, sturdy, and golden.

Eventually, my friend moved out.  And eventually Jasper joined her.  But for a while he was my cat.

When he purred, it drowned out the television.  When he meowed, he sounded like some sort of squeaky land-dolphin.  He was terrified of mylar balloons.

This was unexpected, and comes on top of a long, disheartening string of troubles for my friend.  This was not a good day.

Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
