She’s turning 17 this year.
Furs a little rougher, no matter how high fat of food we give her.
Eyes don’t work as well as they used to.
Ears don’t hear as well either…
She’s been lonely since her brother Odhinn died last May.
The kittens just aren’t the same as her life long best friend.
And now, dementia is sneaking up on her.
There’s an unspoken agreement between us…
When it’s time, we’ll hold her close and say good bye.
She’ll let us know when that time comes.
Until then, we’ll keep her happy with whatever foods she enjoys, and all the late night cuddles she wants.

Out taking pictures the other day and I noticed Gabrielle had her eye on something…
Crouched down in the classic butt wiggle ready to pounce pose…
What could it be that she was after?
Yep, she was trying to play with CoalCat, who doesn’t understand Gabrielle’s rough’n’tumble claws out way of playing.
“Nope. I’m outta here!”
Gabrielle was disappointed, but only for a moment…Daphne stepped in to play.
*Then* Gabrielle wasn’t so sure she wanted to play anymore.
Daphne plays way rougher, and faster, than she does!
Sadly that went by way too fast for me to capture.
This is an example of Daphne’s style…here she getting Ghost to chase her, while doing dog zoomies around him.
Daphne always thinks she’s hit the jackpot when cats play, no matter how rough they do it.
Claws and teeth don’t bother her one bit.
