Our cat is now 16 years old. She's always been a very thin cat with a petite frame. She is the sweetest cat with a gentle personality. She was never a mother, but had she been, she would have bee a most wonderful mother. She is the first to greet us when we arrive. She is still spunky and runs up and down trees, darts to and from, and scratches on posts. She is the light in our eyes.
