Jasper is a high energy cat. Like the wake you up at 2:30 AM to play kind of high energy. He was climbing the shower curtain, blinds, and bookshelves, and trying to knock pictures off the walls. Dave and Gadrie (Jasper’s humans), installed cat trees and shelves for him, and it still wasn’t enough.
“Jasper was clearly the most energetic kitten at Mountain Humane, but I naively thought that he’d settle down a little bit when he got into a home and had more space to play and more interaction with people. I was so, so wrong.”
So they leash trained him hoping to get him outside for more excercise, and it worked! Enjoy this short story about Jasper and the potential for a different experience with a “high output” cat!
