16 years, 9 months. That’s a good age for a good and beautiful cat, who’s being sorely missed by her people. It’s been 8 months since she passed away, but we haven’t forgotten her. She and her brother came to live with us 16 years ago, the last of their litter to need a home, and they never left. Sometimes she was irritating beyond belief, as is the custom of cats, but in the end she was sweet and adorable.
