For fans of Little Baby, I found the above snapshot of her in a dusty drawer. It was taken in 1993.
And below is her today. Blaine and I worry about her because she's so old that she limps when she walks, she doesn't always make it to the litter box, she makes that "yowling" sound at night when she is confused and can't find us, her vision and hearing are poor, she can't jump up on the furniture anymore, and she sleeps most of the time.
Sometimes she sleeps so deeply that I become alarmed and go check to see if she's breathing. I've heard that housecats can live long lifetimes---and I really hope she does.
And here's the idgit called Leonard. He's only about 2 years old.
