Today one of the Saint Bede Studio cats celebrated her 21st birthday. For a cat of her dimensions and sex, this the equivalent of ONE HUNDRED (100) human years. "Locket" was my late mother's cat and she was adopted by me after my mother's passing in April 2007. The centenarian enjoys excellent health, leading an active life, but is stone deaf. Frequently she is a damned nuisance, but one expects this from a dowager. Locket has spent her birthday going about her usual (and unvarying) activities, but has received Greetings from neighbourhood cats passing by.
