Here is a picture of Sophie, my oldest kitty. Since all of my cats (yes, there are 5!) are rescues, I’m not sure of their exact ages, but the vet and I think Sophie is at least 12 years old. She is a ‘faded’ calico – as opposed to a ‘bright’calico, like Sasha, here lurking in the background.
Sophie was rescued from an abusive household and consequently has several medical problems. I cannot imagine how anyone could mistreat this cat as she is my sweetest, gentlest, and most affectionate kitty.
