Our lovely Alix is 17 years old! Since she was a "dumped cat" (one of the many abandoned on our property) I'm not really sure of her exact birthday, so we picked 14 March as an approximate date. It's hard to believe she has been with us so long. She's not as quick or agile as she once was and in the past year she has really begun to show her age. But she still can jump up to the kitchen counter to drink out of the fish bowl. Occasionally I can even interest her in one of the catnip toys. She has brought such joy to our lives and I hope we have given her much happiness and comfort in return. We love you dear friend.
