“Jasper Cat”


Description from Kattalyne: My icon is my kitty Jasper. He is so full of personality he is too entertaining to live without. Jasper loves to chase milk rings he gets out of the coffee mug I have for him. He gets grumpy if he does not get his lap time in the evening. He is addicted to string, milk, and chin scratchin's. He greets me at the door when I get home and tells me about his day peering out the window. He is almost 5 and I don't know how I lived without him. I love my cat.

    Haha… this is so your cat. Good colors too. You’d better make him something out of it! Maybe he won’t eat beads like he does ribbons…

    Are you kidding? I can’t make him something. He’ll figure out how to snap it so 1) he can chew on the stringing material and 2) chase the beads all over!
    I might make an “owner’s bracelet” for me though. :-)

    “owner’s bracelet” – great gift idea for all those animal lovers on your list. gems to match their pets.

    Thanks Cuban Queen! He really is adorable and my favorite subject to take pictures. I have more of Jasper than I do of my boyfriend. I tell the boyfriend that’s because Jasper doesn’t threaten to break the camera when I take pictures nor does he turn around and take pictures of me in retaliation.

    I’ve been making “Mother’s Bracelets” lately. I don’t have any children and I really don’t want any. I’m a happy aunt and cat owner. So owner bracelet.

    I’ve been thinking about mother’s bracelets. To go with the baby blankets I crochet.

    Jeannes Gems – that is a really good idea too! I also crochet baby blankets. I’m really behind currently though. I’ve been beading instead.

    well – if you’ve noticed some of my earlier posts – we’ve had a few long road trips visiting colleges – I get a lot of crocheting done then. Haven’t figured out how to bead in the car yet – lol

    KPJEWELS says:

    Mother’s Bracelets – is this something new? and how are they made, if you don’t mind me asking.

    KPJEWELS says:

    By the way – I love these beads. They work great together.

    KPJEWELS says:

    I, to, have a kitty that I’ve had for 16 years now. She is still very healthy despite a bit of a heart murmur and she is totally blind but manages to get around quite well.

    3KJewels – there are many ways you can do a mother’s bracelet. For my mom I got some pewter letters and spelled out my and my other 2 siblings’ names and added a bead that had our birthstone on it. I am making one for a co-worker where it will just have the beads with the birthstones of all the children. Depends how you feel that day. ;-) I’ve attached my mom’s bracelet

    I also did a grandma’s bracelet for my mom – she only has the one grandchild.

    What a great idea; mothers/owners bracelets! Great pictures too! I’m especially fond of the ‘Aaron’ bracelet because my son’s name is Aaron! BTW, beautiful pick!! :-)

    Oh yeah, great story to go along with your great pick!!

    KPJEWELS says:

    What a wonderful idea. I know lots of fmily members who would love these. I think I will make them all one for Christmas. I’m always looking for something new. Great pictures, they are lovely. Many. many thanks. What a great site. I’m new to beading as I’ve only been doing this since last July and I am learning so much from the Chicky pros. Again thanks.

    Kat S,

    what a sweet and lovely Pick for Jasper, he sounds like a very fun kitty!!! is that Jasper in your picture? if so, he’s a cutie!!! :) thanks also for sharing pics of some of the bracelets you’ve made for family, always good to see what folks create.

    3K – glad to hear that your 16 yr old kitty still gets around pretty well despite being blind, what a joy to still have your kitty at that age. one of my 2 kitties lived till she was almost 19, she was “boss kitty” and the talker, whereas my younger kitty lived for 15 and a half years… both passed away a few years ago, am waiting to get a kitty or 2, till I’m done w/ grad school, I’m not home enough between school and work!

    Kat S – those are beautiful bracelets. I’m working on a simpler idea – matching the beads to the baby blanket with a heart charm. I love the idea of using birthstones.

    Awww! He sounds great! What a handsome fellow and beautiful pick!
    I’ve just been told by the vet that my cat is now a ‘senior citizen’! He cant be that old yet!!
