Jasper was born with two eyes, but sadly, because of corneal ulcers, he eventually had to have each removed — his first in 2013, and the other one five years later.
Thankfully, Jasper is no longer in pain, and the procedures resulted in his terrifyingly adorable signature look — one that has gained him thousands of internet fans!!!
Sadly, Jasper died in mid November and according to Jasper’s owner:
My life, my heart, my baby. Jasper is gone. The details don’t matter, but after being the toughest fighter I’ve ever met, he ran out of fight. He held on long enough for me to make it to say goodbye, and I’ll forever be grateful for that. This is the last picture I will ever take of him, and it’s how I want to remember him. Goofy, full of love and full of life.
We will never forget the amazing outpouring of love and support from everyone here. I’m not sure what will become of this page but I am stepping away from it for a while at least. I’ll figure out refunding the money donated tonight but know that it means the world to know so many of you cared so much. I like to think Jasper knows how loved he was. I will always know how loved he was.
Thank you all for everything. When my heart feels less like it’s been scooped out of my chest, I’ll be glad to read your love here. And if there’s anything you can think of for this page going forward. Thank you.
