My Ladybug looks a bit like my avatar - avatar for next year?
Could have used this photo of my girl, Lucky Lady (aka Ladybug) for my Halloween avatar.
These photos were taken when she was 22 yrs old. In this one, she was obviously done with her photo session!
This was about half way thru her photo session -
I adopted Bug in Aug 2000 when she was 20 yrs old and had her for 6 more years. She had no teeth and a crumpled left ear (probably from a very bad ear mite infestation) and the shiniest black coat I'd ever seen. Because of the bad ear, she never held the good ear in an upright position, but held it flat, straight out from her head. It looked like an airplane wing.
She was a sweet girl who slept with me every night. What a great friend.

I've never heard of a cat that old - 26 years! What great care you certainly gave her. In fact, you wouldn't often see one at 20 yrs still available for adoption. So even better that you were willing to adopt her at that ripe old age.
Two of my cats lived to 16 yrs and one to 17 yrs and I thought I was doing good.

Super cute. Looks like she had tons of personality.Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.
You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

My kids are now lobbying hard for a cat. We told them we had to be convinced they were responsible enough to take care of it. They have done all the research to choose what cat they want, what the cat needs, and even to get an idea of a budget. I've never had one, so I have no idea what I'm in for, but from pictures like these it sounds well worth it.
