A Tribute To Spooky

By gconant  
While not a very good image, this is Spooky.
She showed up on my back deck at about 6 mo. old, dirty and hungry.
I decided to bring her into the house to clean her up and feed her, and then let her go.
. . . A week later, I decided that I needed to bring her to the vet to have her looked over before I let her go.
23 yrs. later, she was still with me. (She lived to about 24 yrs. old.)
She never weighed more than 9 lbs., and was by far the best jumper of any cat that I've had.
It's amazing how close you can get to a pet after 24 yrs.

Dear, fluffy Spooky. What a lucky girl she was to find her way to your door and to live such a long and happy life.

Glenn, I'm sure Spooky's remarkable longevity owed a lot to the care and love you gave her for one week then 2,147 more. Bob
