May as well start the archival trawl of critters with piccies of my angel pets (my brother just happens to have been visiting when this and next week's were taken!)

Jasper Cat MacLean was a fine example of the now established Australian Mist (designed by mixing Burmese with Abbysinian and Grey Tabby). He had much of the placid and shoulder-loving nature of the Burmese - and always the left shoulder, mind! 

(I chose this pic because it shows off his length and build really well.)
