We’ve always had dogs and cats and fortunately, we’ve had good luck with their health and longevity. Ziffy our Dauchund is ten and our Beauvais Bear is five, nothing exceptional but we once had a cat we called Miss Elsa who lives well past twenty. She was a great cat, friendly, blue eyed and with a calico coat that was quite exceptional. She loved our son Dave and insisted on sleeping on the foot of his bed even when he was a toddler.
In her dotage, Miss Elsa became a little vacant. Some mornings she would look at in complete surprise as if to ask, “You humans look vaguely familiar, but who are you?”
Happy Birthday, Angie and many more birthdays and pig ears!
