Old Friends - sitting like book-ends

Ginny is 23 years old (apparently born around 1987/88). I adopted her almost 10 years ago and she was a senior then. She has an eye condition that causes her to have slightly blurry vision so she has decided to live on our second floor and only comes down to the main floor in the evening to visit with all the other cats. She is such a dear, sweet little feline. She shares our bed and purrs like a machine as soon as we touch her. She enjoys everyone's company and Mr. Ed has a crush on her. He is 21.

Mr. Ed came to live with us 1 year ago. He was 20 when I adopted him from our local shelter. These two are the best of friends.


  1. Deb, you a wonderful woman=who adopts a kitty that is 20?...That is so awesome and what a sweet love story between Ginny and Mr. Ed!...They are gorgeous cats and certainly don't look over 20...I adore your big heart...Have a fun, happy week, Deb.

  2. They are precious! I love them and you! You are so amazing to give these sweet kitties a loving home.

  3. Very sweet love story about the bed-ends! LOL :D

  4. 21 and 23? Wow, now that's good genes.

    As Jacqueline wrote, almost no one would adopt such senior kitties. That makes you an amazing and wonderful person and I'm so glad they have you!

  5. Hi Deb...Thank you for becoming my newest follower! It's so nice to meet new people and to meet a cat sitter is even nicer because it is so rare to find someone who will take care of cats in their own home when their owners are out of town! Do you have a website for your business?
    You are wonderful to adopt a cat who is 20 years old! Who else would've adopted him if you hadn't? You have such a charming home and I'm sure all of your pets are a delight.
    I don't know if you noticed but I am hosting a Floppy Eared Caption Contest which ends on Thursday! So come on over to view the details!

  6. What a sweet love story. Those two look so cosy and happy. Do they Cuddle? How wonderful to be so happy at that age.

  7. Hi Deb! Oh, there's nothing like kitty romance! How very sweet. Those are two very pretty seniors! Thanks for much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
