My furbaby taking a nap
My furbaby is almost 20 yrs old. I found her by my place of work. She showed up for about 4 days in a row and I said if she comes back again I am taking her home and so I did.
I took her to a vet and had her checked for a chip, keeping my fingers crossed the whole time that there would not be one. The vet told me she was about 1 1/2 yrs old.
That was in late 1996- early 1997. She is such a sweetheart and I love her to death. I think because I have loved her so much is why she has lived so long.
Everyone says she does not look her age but then again they say the same thing about me and I am 73. My boyfriend is also a cat lover and plays with her a lot. She is still pretty perky.
