  6. Awww... she looks so relaxed. I had a cat growing up who lived to be 21 years old. I bet Gretel has many more years ahead of her.

  8. Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for all the nice comments. Gretel is a real sweetheart. Spoiled rotten, but a sweetheart! She gets about ten treats a day--literally. Boy, does this girl love her raw meat (especially venison)!

    Besides being deaf and having a little arthritis, she is doing just fine and hopefully will be with us for a long time to come.

    Keiko,
    You're right. I looked back at the photo and realized Gretel does kinda dinky in it. But she's not. She used to weigh about 12 pounds, but I think she's slimmed down. She also used to be a real bruiser--going after big neighbor cats when she was just a little kitten! : )

    Amy,
    When you're a hundred and something years old, you have my permission to lie in the sun all day and do nothing. : )

I don't want to require commenters to be registered Blogger or Open ID users because I know many of you aren't. Thanks so much for your understanding!
