SONY DSCThis is a shot of Minx that I took six years ago. She was about nine and middle-aged back then. At fifteen, Minxasaurus is a bit slower but she’s still going strong. And just as pretty as ever. JK

Yeah, I know. This pic is off topic. Get over it. This is Jet. She’s been with me since November 2004. You’ll have to do the math on your own ’cause you know how ladies hate having their ages discussed. Jet was already seven or eight months old when I ‘rescued’ her. There is some discrepancy in the accounts of the participants. I say I rescued this feral kitten from a certainly short and uncomfortable life, and she claims I kidnapped her and have kept her a prisoner ever since. She misses the taste of fresh sparrow and while I try to point out that I offer her a great variety of flavors throughout the day she only gives me that cold stare – you cat owners/slaves know the one – and asks why doesn’t Friskies offer up a Chunky Chipmunk Stew? I don’t have these answers and I try to explain as much but she doesn’t believe me. Trust can be a hard thing to win when you’re dealing with cats. Despite this obvious clash of opinions, Jet still sleeps on my chest on a daily basis. So maybe I’m not all bad. Jet isn’t quite buying it, even after all this time, but there’s hope yet. JK
