Molly was a stray kitten we adopted in early 1988. Here she is, at age 19 this year. I am Molly's human. She loves comfort, my lap, the warm sun, a soft blanket. She loves cat food with jelly, she licks all the jelly off, and leaves the rest for the other 2 cats. She's getting on in years, going a bit deaf and slightly blind, but she still accompanies me into the garden, following me as I weed and putter about.

Awwwww ... she's gorgeous!

I love old cats. We had an 18-year-old foisted on us a couple of years back when her owner died and she had nobody to look after her ... and we really loved her 'superior elderly lady' attitude! Although we only had the pleasure of her company for a year or so we adopted another 'old' cat to replace her (a 10-year-old, anyway).

We also have a black woolly cat who looks rather like Tas ... but there's no way she'd tolerate being photographed with a pretty little hat on!
