Hobie


Our beautiful, handsome feline geezer cat is silvering with age. The George Clooney of the cat world. He's nearly 20 years old, and still sprightly enough to be waiting for me to exit the bedroom at 6am, and lead me (all be it a little more carefully now) down the stairs for his breakfast. Absolutely my first job of the day, and the most important. He still howls loudly and often, since his sister passed away 18 months ago, and is spending more time sleeping. He has only been to the vet on a handful of occasions for a check up. He's THE best, and rather needy.......thank goodness....as he is a key member of our household.

  2. Thanks Kylie
    He does all the work, or that is what he leads us to believe I think. Don't know what we would do without the old sod.

  5. 20 is pretty darned good for a cat; ours is about 10 and we worry. I have much the same early morning programme with ours (5.30 am), so you're not alone.

  6. Wow! 6am. That is dedication. I love the idea of him being the George Clooney of the cat world.

    We have a 15 year old girl cat, and two young boys of only 9 - again touch wood they seem to keep well clear of the vet.
