Feline Fabulous Friendship

Multiple cat households

Elsie is a 16 year old, deaf, semi-feral cat. She was originally part of a Trap/Neuter/Release effort, but because she was deaf, couldn't be released after her spay. She has lived with us for many years and is now nearing the end as a result of kidney failure. Rosie is almost constantly by her side. The devotion and love between bonded cats is a remarkable and beautiful thing.

Cat friendship

A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, hide their feelings, but a cat does not. 
Ernest Hemingway



This weekend we are joining both the Caturday Art Blog Hop and Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

    Elsie is so lovely, we don't remember seeing her here before. Rosie is such a sweet girl to stick by Elsie. It is truly wonderful to see.
