Jet Dragon

This is Jet Dragon guarding the computer, waiting for Mom to come use it.

Jet liked to tunnel under the covers of the bed. Here he used his laser eyes to warn intruders.

Jet sleeping the day away in peace, getting rested for mayhem to come.

Sleeping with his best buddy, Venus Purrl. The most common place to find him.

"Where is the computer, Mom? I guess I'll just hang out here until it shows up."

My personal little yin and yang. If they had swapped coat colors, Jet would have been totally yang, Venus yin. Their personalities were so different, but they (mostly) got along together.

Today would have been, Jet Dragon, my little house panther's eleventh birthday.

Jet died suddenly from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

that we didn't know he had,on December 3, 2010.

He followed Venus,for whom he grieved deeply,

,just nine months after she left, also unexpectedly,

for the Bridge.

I miss them in the depths of my soul; they were a part of my life for so many years. Jet's insistant "YOW!", his curious nature. Nothing new entered the house without receiving a thorough review within seconds. His deep multi-toned purr against my chest at night. The toy fur mice that he would carry about the house by the tail. Or the special catnip mouse that he carried off and hid, never to be seen again. His direct way of going after what he wanted at top speed. I knew, when those big green eyes met mine from the carrier, that it was love at first sight. I will love you both furrever!

Not having met you Laura, or gotten to know Jet Dragon or lovely Venus, I feel I missed something wonderful. Here's to a wonderful time at Rainbow Bridge when you and the two little ones once again meet and continue your togetherness. Wonderful tribute and great pictures. The best to you and yours.

Aw, jet Dragon was a cool kitty--I know we would have been pals (well, he was prolly waaaaay nicer than me!)

The Human can still get leaky about one of her Kitties That Came Before. She says Mr. Teeth was her Best Boy Ever, but to tell you the truth, I find that a little bit insulting. As if!

We are very glad your Human has Taffy to keep her company now. We are sure you, Jet Dragon, will approve. All the lovely kitties at the Bridge, I think, are happy when their Humans find a new kitty companion. It shows that they taught their Humans well: A kitty is an essential part of a happy life!

XOXO Spitty and his Human
