Jasper McKittenCat

I really like this photo of Jasper McKittenCat.  You can't see his color very well, but I love the play of light and shadow on his floofy fur.  He is a gorgeous ginger and just turned five in April.  He was born in a shelter and his Mom and Dad found him there when he was just a tiny kitten.  The family has grown quite a bit since then, with the additions of Maggie, Huggy Bear and Josie.  Jasper had been an only kitten for a few years when the new additions started showing up, but he was pretty gracious about it and they all get together wonderfully well.  Jasper loves being up high and will relax on the wall of the shower, when the shower isn't running, of course, and loves to climb up on all the boxes stored in the garage.  Sadly for him, a lot of the boxes have disappeared recently, but he still climbs up those which are left.  In hot weather, he lounges in the bathroom sink, seeking some cool relief.  He is quite playful and can catch a feather toy on a string pretty well.  He has one really bad habit.  From the time he was first adopted, on the first day in fact, he discovered wires.  He loves to chew on any kind of wire and has messed up a few appliances and phones in his time.

                                             Jasper McKittenCat chews on wires.
                                             He knows it's naughty, but he aspires
                                                      To chew them all through,
                                                      Whether old or new.
                                             How to keep Jasper from chewing on wires?

Oh, I hope Jasper is careful about those wires, it could be dangerous!

Well if they didn't have wires, he wouldn't chew through them, would he?

Chew on any kind of wire is very dangerous~! Hahaha, but he still very cute for me~!

It's a good thing this handsome Man cat doesn't get electrocuted cause his floofy fur would probably stand out in spikes
instead of being so nice and floofy. I used to have a little dog that liked to chew on wires once in awhile.

Very nice pose and great limerick.

that's a neat picture! (and very cool name)

i'm sure jasper's mom and dad have tried just about everything to get him to stop with the wires. think they've learned how to replace wiring?
