Hi Everyone,

My name is Anne and I have owned many cats in my life but I just adopted a 1 year old, large black
Bombay neutered male cat named Jasper last November 8, 2021. We live in Ontario , Canada and
I am a friendly , caring , SWF lady in her late 50's. I love music, animals and pets, watching movies and
tv and computer stuff as well as reading and writing stories and poems.

My cat Jasper is a very affectionate , lovable cat who loves to play with his toys and cuddle up with me and my
mom on our laps , beds, sofas etc. He runs all over the house. He's an indoor cat. In the past I have had indoor/outdoor cats
but in my area there have been more wild animals around like fox and a neighbor mentioned a coyote/wolf species
so I decided to keep my cats I adopt indoors as they will be safer. If I can train Jasper on a harness and leash he can
come out on our decks and lawn in the summer months.
He loves to watch the birds when they come to the backyard feeder.
I love my new baby so much and he'll have a great life with my mom and I.

I hope I meet lots of interesting friends in here. Happy New Year to you all!
Here's some photos of Jasper and I and some of him alone. Enjoy!

Meow!
Anne Mckinnon

Thank you for the kind and sweet welcome for me and Jasper. Jasper gives a paws up.
It is nice to see a fellow Canadian here Rubymama. Where are you from? I'm in Ontario Canada and
boy is it freezing here and we're getting snow tonight. Another reason to keep Jasper indoors. LOL
I'll check out all the other threads you have mentioned like the black cat one as this is my first one I've owned.
Mostly I owned tabby and a calico in the past. I will put more photos of Jasper up soon. How do you make those
adorable photos with the cat's names on them. I'd like to do one as I would like to make one with Jasper as well
as my cats who have passed away. One was my 16 year old tabby female cat MIsty who I had to put down at the vet's office
two years ago on June 12, 2020. I was in the room with her when they put her to sleep. She got cremated and is buried in my garden just outside of my bedroom so she is close to me. I was very sad when I put her down and then my dad passed away on Nov. 23, 2020. It's been a very difficult time for me as well as the whole family the past two years.

Here's some nice photos of my Misty who I put to sleep on June 12, 2020. May she rest in peace until I see her again.

I love you Misty. What an angel she was. She will always be remembered in my heart.
I'm so happy I found this forum site. Great to be here.

Meow!

I'm much further east, but it's cold here too. :cold:

Thank you for all the kind compliments on Jasper and he had long nails in that picture as that was the day
I brought him home from the shelter. I have trimmed them twice since then front and back. Thank you for your
kind welcomes and sympathies for Misty and my dad. Jasper is making us feel better and he can be a mischief at times
but he is one adorable and affectionate kitty and my mom and I love him a lot. I will put more photos in here of Jasper.
I'll take more on my phone and add them here later.
It's great being here and you are all so nice and kind.

Meow!

Anne
