(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Jasper

Mesmerizing. That's the word that came to mind when we first met our handsome new friend, Jasper. Just look at those eyes. And that intense gaze. And his sleek and luxurious fur.


Jasper is new at PAWS, so he's still getting used to the sights, smells and sounds that come with living at the shelter. We can only imagine how scary it all is for a less confident cat like him.


Fortunately, through socialization that includes play (which he LOVES), pets, conversation and catnip, Jasper is learning that the people here are actually pretty nice. And that's a good thing, since that realization will help him to trust all humans, and make him more adoptable. :)


Jasper is about one year old, neutered, micro-chipped and current on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He can be a little rough, so he would do best in a patient, adults-only home without any other pets or children. Won't you give Jasper the chance he so deserves?

Update on Zoe: Thank you all for your continued purrs, prayers and good thoughts. Zoe's checkup on Saturday went well. Her bloodwork yielded good results, and the echocardiogram she had today showed no abnormalities in her heart. It's all good news, but we still don't (and may never) know what actually caused her incident. The upshot, though, is that Zoe is back to her normal, lovable, happy-go-lucky self. :)

Oh my goodness, Jasper you are beyond stunning! Those eyes are out-of-this-world gorgeous. It's okay that you're still getting used to your new situation, Jasper. It's obvious, though, that deep down you're a gentle soul. Take your time, sweet Jasper, as your forever home will come for you. In the meantime, you are in very good hands at PAWS!

Thank you for the update on Zoe! We've been thinking about her, and about all of you. It is so good to hear that she is back to her old self. Strange things sure can happen, and without explanation. But, she is well and home with you, so happy times indeed!

Jasper is stunning -- his eyes are amazing! We can't imagine him being at the shelter for long -- or certainly hope he won't be.

Kitties Blue said...

Such wonderful news for Zoe and all of you. Yippee! We have absolutely never seen a cat with eyes the color of Jasper's. Mesmerizing is exactly the right word. We'll be purring and praying that his socialization doesn't take too long and he will have a new home very soon.

OMC! Jasper is the kind of kitty Pop always wanted when he was a kid—black with orange eyes. I better not let him see this or he'll want to trade me in.

His eyes are just incredible! Very mysterious.

Unknown said...

His eyes remind me of Popoki's. And she also held hers wide open like that when she was in the shelter (and terrified). Hoping he gets a home soon!

Holy cat, Jasper, you are SO stunning! We wonder, with those eyes, if you might not have a bit of burmese in you?
We're sure some family will be over the moon for you VERY soon!
