The cat is unusually affectionate nowadays. I think age is catching up with her and she has become milder in her temper. She actively seeks affection and doesn't mind being held. She doesn't jump as high as she used to, nor dash after paper balls as long and and far as she used to either. She prefers sitting on the soft cotton rug to the cold hard floor. She wheezes, she sighs.
She came to live with us in 2001 at around one month of age. That makes her 7 years old now! Bambi, stay healthy and strong. Live with us as long as you can dear. We will take good care of you. I love you.
