|His grooming case|
|Being groomed by Grandma|
He also has a grooming kit, complete with two different combs and a large grooming brush, a Pet mit, nail clippers, tweezers, a Cat nip mouse, a glittery collar and a travel bowl. He also has a little fleece toy which he cuddles at night. The bag is complete with his name jewelled on the front, obviously . He is the biggest pampered princess out and is groomed and cuddled regularly. Due to his age he only has two teeth and his breath would make you faint, so I have to put tooth paste on his gums with my finger, not the best job in the world.

At Christmas he had his own stocking full of presents and had a nice Christmas meal, dressed up in a very smart Father Christmas outfit for the occasion. We recorded our Christmas on video and the majority of it was on Jasper. It was so sweet because he sat in the room with us all Christmas day, he loves being with us all. When we are eating dinner he comes and sits with us and in the evening he has a firm spot on the settee taking up half of it, or on the floor with his legs up in the air next to the fire. When he wants attention he lies on the floor and puts his paws up in a begging position and meows. We have never had a cat like him and he really is a part of the family.
Due to eating so much Jasper weighs close to a stone, so he is pretty good to lift when you are doing weights. He is clearly overweight but because he looks so adorable the vet says he doesn't need to lose weight and he is 'cuddly', even though he would be a good candidate for The Biggest Loser.

Jasper looks after himself and is regularly seen grooming. He has no shred of masculinity about him and I'm sure he would be someone like Louie Spence if he was a person, but with less dancing. He doesn't mind how you pick him up, you can carry and hold him like a baby and he doesn't care one little bit. You can even take him down the stairs like it, he also loves car journeys. Once when we he was in the car with me and my sister and he was sitting on my lap in the front seat of the car, the man next to us at the traffic lights did have to look twice.

Although he is twenty he shows no signs of going to Pussy cat heaven just yet, he only suffers from selective arthritis in his hips ie. his hips are bad when he wants carrying up the stairs, but when he can smell prawns, he can easily leg it down the stairs to the kitchen. Jasper rarely goes out but he does love sun worshipping on his back. He is scared by leaves so he regularly runs in the house skating around the table on two paws and runs upstairs, I told you he had selective arthritis. We have so many photos of Jasper, I have around 500 of them and in each one he shows so much character. Jasper has given us so much happiness over the past 5 years and we really hope he will be around for a long time to come, even though he may make us bankrupt with cat food and prawn debts.
