Mouse is very old

25 07 2017

Mouse (the cat) turned 21 earlier this month.  The Purina ‘cat age calculator‘ doesn’t even go this high, but it’s probably as though she’s about 96. She does still purr, though not every day any more; and she still comes upstairs for a her midday tipple of catnip, though only once a week or so now.  Her birth certificate (shared with Sophie) was drawn by one of Tim Halliday‘s daughters. (The Halliday family owned her mother; at a party at their house in 1996, Tim suddenly barked “Anyone want any half Abyssinian kittens?”, and the rest is history).
