Flashback Friday - Remembering a sweet friend.

We were very sad when we learned that our good pal Ginger Jasper had to leave for the Bridge.  GJ was such a great ManCat and was loved by many.  He was a fighter and battled his illness for almost two years.  We will miss him a lot.

Ginger Jasper was a special friend to us because in June of 2011 Mom and Flat Tamir got to meet Flat Ginger Jasper and his Mom and Dad, Carol and Barrie.  They all had a great visit and the Flatties had  lots of fun being photographed and admired.   You can read about it HERE.  I'm sure Tamir was right at the gates of the Bridge to welcome his buddy GJ.

Tamir, Max, Ginger Jasper
Fly free sweet friend.   You will live on forever in the hearts of those who love you.  Soft purrs and prayers to your Mum and Dad....we know they miss you a lot and will always remember you.

A lovely tribute to GJ. It's so sad to think of what his family is going through now. All of us pet bloggers have been there - or will sooner or later. :(
