Self-portrait in a cat's eye


She's peaceful, she's quiet, she's patient. Even when I disturb her sleep.

She's spoiled rotten.

And she's going on eighteen years old.

Good health and happy days, Sasha! You can go back to sleep now.

    She's a beauty, as well as an elder of the cat tribe.

    Mine is 17 :)

  2. I love that first shot. My cat (well, my former cat that now lives with my mother) is now about 15. It is good to hear he probably has many more years to keep her company. They have become inseparable. - Margy

  3. She's looking really good for nearly 18. Growing up, my family had a short-haired tortoiseshell who also lived to about 20. In her last couple of years she wasn't doing too well, very arthritic, which made it difficult for her to get around or clean herself.

  4. Long live all elders of the cat tribe!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
