Okay, sometimes cats (and people) can get grumpy as they age! Apparently that’s what I did with my housemate of nine years, so since he was 20 (now THERE’S a feline age to aspire to!), my mom felt that he shouldn’t have to cope with my (occasional) snits. I’m a super handsome 12-year-old declawed gentleman (with Vet Care Support for Life), and although independent, I do like the old ear/head/chin rubs like most cats. Since I’ve got long hair, I’ll need attention to my grooming to keep the hairballs at bay, but that’ll just help us spend more time together! How about just you and me (and no other pets) spending our lives together?
